charlie rangel Rangel: Women, Minorities Take Govt Jobs Because Private Sector Is Racist [Video]

Harlem Congressman Charlie Rangel no stranger to either controversy or to Fox Business News appeared on the network’s “Follow The Money” program and, had a simple response to some graphs that showed public sector workers make more money than private sector workers.

The private sector, Mr. Rangel said, is racist.

“A lot of women are involved in these lower income jobs, a lot of minorities,” the congressman said, adding. “The government doesn’t have the racism and discrimination that the private sector enjoys.”

Asked by the host if he meant that the private sector discriminates, Mr. Rangel replied “There’s no doubt about it. People don’t like to talk about it because it’s uncomfortable.”

    he most certainly has a point. that is not to say that in all, every and most situations, but many. it is not unique to the private sector.  furthermore, just by virtue of the fact that women still can’t achieve equal pay for equal work, seems like there are some misogynistic, anti-female discriminatory tendencies thrown in the mix.
