Since the beginning of the industruial revolution the rich have been trying to set up the US economy to benefit the rich only. By keeping the people divided this will occupy them mentally and they might not notice they are being subjugated by the big corporations.
I think the young people of the USA are finally starting to wake up to this fact and will put a stop to these phony manufactured hatreds.
There are just not engough financial sector jobs to give all the brightest college grads anymore and eventually some will slip out and change the world.
Sorry Boss Hogg, nice try though.
