I'm a bit surprised that no one has touched on this part of the issue. The racist wing of the neo-wingnut Republican Tea Party has always hated the PO because it was/is a rare avenue to a middle class life for minorities. They have simply learned to posture their veiled racism in a plausible fiscal high road stance. Black men accounted for 11.2 percent of career postal workers in 2002, compared with 5 percent for the overall workforce, according to a 2003 study by the U.S. General Accounting Office. And 10.1 percent of career postal workers are black women, who on average made up 6.3 percent of the overall workforce, according to the study. Blacks still make up 21 percent of the Postal Service's workforce, a spokesman said Monday.Blacks and other minorities have particularly thrived in the upper ranks of postal employees.As of 2008, a third of the Postal Service's senior executives were minorities, compared with 16 percent governmentwide, according to congressional testimony by the service's Office of Inspector General.http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2011-12-06/business/ct-bi...proton
