Michael Eric Dyson: Don’t Cut Public-Sector Jobs because the Private Sector Is Racist

by Andrew Johnson

MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson pushed his usual race-based commentary during an appearance on ABC’s This Week in which he argued that discrimination against minorities in the private sector makes it imperative that public-sector jobs not be cut.

Dyson, a Georgetown professor, said that “a disproportionate number of black and Latino people” hold public-sector jobs as a result of “practices of discrimination in the private sector.” 

“We can’t depend upon the private sector itself to adjust for its own bias when it’s prevented people from flourishing,” he said.
