{Empty title} | The Nation

Ehrenreich conveniently leaves out the fact that the couple who treated their help like slaves were from India or Pakistan, leaving the impression that the brutal employers were good ol' Americans. In most such cases, the people who treat servants (here and abroad) like slaves or sex toys are from India or Muslim countries. This probably derives from living in a feudal culture where workers are treated as personal property. Ehrenreich and other white liberals should have the guts to point this out.
