Race and Class, like the Irish slaves brought here, low wage laborers are treated like dogs, the Mexicans of Albuquerque and LA, the African-Americans of Brooklyn and south side Chicago and the entire service economy. What color is your bartender? Doesn't matter, they don't have healthcare, pensions or decent wages.
I generally agree. That said, race does play a big role here - the bartender's colour doesn't matter in terms of how they're treated by their employers, but you bet your ass a white bartender will get better tips than a black one, and the way black kids are treated in some schools leads them to worse academic results, making them more likely to be working in low paid jobs in the first place...
