Is that going to change if they get married? Is this number a reflection of tax breaks that married people get, and what other variables are there? I have a hard time believing that this income gap is actually caused by being a same-sex couple. The same Census shows white same-sex couples actually have more median income than white heterosexual couples. If this is true, then we deserve what we got. This is another great example of ideological manipulation . It's pretty easy to follow. It...

Then the the only reasonable explanation that we can deduce (based on your observation) is that Black women in Athens, GA lack manners. They require special training in social etiquette and Georgia customs. I'm also curious as to why if your mother, who I'm assuming is a southern woman, passed these great customs onto you, why didn't other Black mothers residing in southern areas pass these same customs onto their Black daughters?
