Can we stop with this faggot graph until we can label the axis and get a source?

I appreciate the graph but refuse to share it without a source I can check

Agreed, source for the graph is https://exposeintelligence.blogspot.com/2015/06/who-really-makes-up-1.html, itself based on data at http://racehist.blogspot.com/2013/04/2012-forbes-400-by-ethnic-origins.html, which is simply some dude combing through the Forbes 400 Billionaires list and counting black/asian/white/jewish billionaires. Choice of who counts as Jewish can be confirmed through Wikipedia of course but also by their very own Jewish Telegraphic Association boasting about it: https://web.archive.org/web/20191210130745/https://www.jta.org/2009/10/05/united-states/at-least-139-of-the-forbes-400-are-jewish.

The graph itself sucks. It's depicting representation ratios, where "negative" means under-represented. So for instance, 34% of billionaires are jewish, but 2% of US citizen are jewish, that's an over-representation of 17x. Meanwhile 0.25% of billionaires are black, but 13% of US citizen are black, that's an under-representation of 52x (roughly). This is represented on the graph as a positive ~17 tall bar and a negative ~60 tall bar respectively. Which isn't great for representing ratios really. There are pie charts available on the same site which are more visually accurate.

When you tell people 2% of the population account for 34% of billionaires the people want socialism but when they find out the 2% are jews suddenly you hear birds chirping.

There's no need to label the axis on this graph as it doesn't provide any data points to correlate with on a typical x/y graph... it's simply a y graph with different classes.
