Guess an African American male is worth more than a white woman in the liberal world of racist/sexist politics.

That is only slightly better than the W administration, when 39 of the top 121 employees were women. The records also show that for those paid less than $100k (for people whom can actually read) almost 20% more men were hired into those jobs over women. H had seven women compared with 14 men making the top White House salary of $172,000 which was 3 more women that W, that is true, but overall H's record on equal work and equal pay are far below the line he fed. It was a lie. Even as early as 2009 he had to feign interest in the whole thing by having a dinner to pander to his senior female aides in order to make it appear he cared. It's not that anything ever changed. He just placated them. It worked. Didn't you read about these things? I can read.
