Brain Teaser from Rachel Dolezel, former director of the Human Rights Education Institute (on edge of Coeur d'Alene's City Park, via Facebook:
So, if Idahoans only earn 84cents to the national dollar, and Coeur d'Alene residents only earn 79 cents to the national dollar…and (white)women earn only 77cents to the dollar nationally, while women of color earn approximately 58 cents to the dollar nationally, then how much would a black woman in Coeur d'Alene expect to make compared to the national average of a white male with her same qualifications?
Question: Anyone hazard a guess?
