David Simon on the Two Americas

David Simon is right that there are two Americas, but this is nothing new (the use of the word 'now' is misleading), and it doesn't relate to capitalism specifically.

Consider: Switzerland is a capitalist nation, but Simon's analysis of America's two nations wouldn't apply there in quite the same way, would it?

No, the original cause of the two Americas is the racial caste system set up after the enslavement of Africans in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
