Rapper Jay-Z describes himself and his entourage as “Rockefellers” who “fly higher than weather in (Gulfstream V)’s or better.”
You know … like Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
Anyway, Jay is worth an estimated $500 million … which is chump change compared to Oprah Winfrey, who is worth approximately $2.7 billion.
Why do we raise these income estimates today? Because according to a mural hanging on a government-run school in Beaufort County, S.C., capitalism is racist.
No really. According to the mural, “You can’t have capitalism without racism!”

The free market isn’t racist, people. It doesn’t care if you’re white, black or purple … and people who do care about those things are likely to find the free market an unforgiving place.
Also the last time we checked the free market was a far better provider for Americans of all races than government’s dependence economy – the goal of which is to keep as many people “enslaved” to poverty as possible.
S.C. Sen. Tom Davis (R-Beaufort) posted a picture of the mural on his Facebook page, adding he had requested it be taken down.
