You forgot "Minority" or did I miss it?

That's the new scapegoat in the mortgage crisis - "minority borrowers."

There are so many that needs to be taken off the list but I guess I understand.

Black folks don't own the patent on ghetto, underpriviledged, Section 8 recipients, Public housing residents, lower income, and welfare recipients. I understand their euphemisms, but I'm just saying we don't own the patent or the trademark.
