If I Were A White, Male Middle Aged Forbes Columnist… In a reaction to President Obama’s big, pragmatic, race-free economic inequality speech in Osawatomie, Kansas, “Forbes” tech writer Gene Marks crafted a recklessly condescending column called “If I Were a Poor Black Kid.”
In just two days, this white, middle aged keyboard monkey madness has garnered 518 comments on the site and God knows how many page views. It’s officially Internet catnip. Now Marks, who in his bio describes himself as “a short, balding and mediocre certified public accountant,” starts off well enough: I am not a poor black kid. I am a middle aged white guy who comes from a middle class white background.
