Talking Dictionary 734. President: No Cure For Racism


734. They had elected him to solve national problems, and that's exactly what he did. He solved poverty. He ordered all lottery administrators to decrease the sizes of the prizes. Where one person used to win $100 million, now ten million people win $10. He solved unemployment. It's now zero percent. Everyone must share his job with someone else. Instead of one person having a 40‐hour job, two persons have 20‐hour jobs. He solved immigration. He eliminated all the boundary markers all around the United States. "Borders are for bigots," he said. But he didn't solve racism. "Even I can't solve that," he said, shaking his head. "As long as there are races, there'll be racism. Maybe in 1,000 generations, everyone'll have light brown skin. But even then, unless everyone also has the same color of eyes, and everyone has the same color and texture of hair, there'll still be racism." 6.6
