The Silent Partner

8 06 2012

Race has been the silent issue all along in the Wisconsin public employee reform question.

Scott Walker’s master stroke of political genius (which John Kasich didn’t grok) was to make mostly white cop and fire fighter unions exempt.  This drove a wedge between them and the largely black non-firstresponder state and local bureaucrats.

AFSCME largely represents the latter, which should make this vituperative unsurprising.

In related news, the non-white/public and the white/private fission is becoming more and more clear in New York.
