 President  Obama disputed the notion that income inequality and related problems affect mostly African Americans and Hispanics, saying these issues cut across socioeconomic lines. "The opportunity gap in America is now as much about class as it is about race," and that gap is growing.Reducing inequality should help all Americans, "We need to dispel the myth that the goals of growing the economy and reducing inequality are necessarily in conflict. The trickle-down GOP ideology that reduced the power of unions, and led to tax cuts "for the wealthiest, while investments in things that make us all richer, like schools and infrastructure, were allowed to wither."USA Today
