MSNBC Guest: There’s ‘Intentionality’ to the Fact Black People Are in Poverty

PowerPAC+ chairman Steve Phillips discussed economic inequality in this country Saturday on MSNBC, saying “black people are not poor by accident,” but rather, there is an “intentionality” to it.

“Black people are not poor by accident or by some kind of quirk of history. We were placed in slavery, developed the wealth of this country, denied access to the GI bill benefits, so there’s an intentionality to the current black situation. We have to be equally intentional to address it” Phillips stated.
