You can feel the black on black crime rate in Chicago and Baltimore going down already, can't you?
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, nearly a quarter of blacks in America are in poverty. So what better way to help "combat racism" than to put "women of color" on one ounce gold coins? As of yesterday an ounce of gold was selling for around $1200. I am sure that tons of "women of color" will line up to fork over $1200 for a coin instead of, oh I don't know, maybe paying rent or buying food or buying a new iPhone or....you get the picture. So who exactly is going to buy these coins?
Rich White coastal liberals of course! Just think, you can buy gold coins as an investment and then during a conversation about how awful Trump and those dirty people in the Midwest are over white wine at a fabulous party with other rich White coastal liberals, you can drop a comment about buying the new "women of color" gold coin all casual like. You can get all sorts of leftist street cred for checking your "white privilege" and the quiet admiration from those same liberal friends for investing because nothing is really more important to rich liberals than to stay rich, especially to be richer than those dirty people in the Midwest who voted for Trump and minorities that you keep as far away from you and your family as possible.
I feel really good about this move, I always knew that the Federal government could solve racism through meaningless gestures.
