Jun 17 - Study: Black Men, White Ex-Cons Have Equal Job Prospects
 

 
THIS IS HORSEsh*t.....



NEW YORK (AP) -- A new study says black men with no criminal histories are about as likely to be offered jobs in New York City as white men with felony convictions.

The study, released by the city Commission on Human Rights, finds employers call back black men who present resumes with no criminal background 16 percent of the time -- about as often as white men who report criminal histories.

Meanwhile, blacks with convictions in their past were called back 6 percent of the time. Whites with clean records were offered jobs 21 percent of the time.

The study, led by sociology professors at Princeton University, followed 13 men on 3,500 job interviews over the course of a year beginning in February 2004.

The men posed as high school graduates with similar credentials and applied for such jobs as deli clerks, telemarketers and cashiers.

On some interviews, candidates told employers they had spent 18 months in prison on a drug conviction.

Princeton University sociology professor Bruce Western helped conduct the study. He told the New York Daily News that employers are hesitant to trust young black men.

Oh? How so?

If anything it renforces the general perception of most white people that blacks are somehow dangerous or untrustworthy. If blacks are to move toward moderninity, then barriers to entry, such as racial stereotypes, need to be broken down.

This study reminds me of a study they did not so long ago, where it was percieved (from Whites and Blacks) that a picture of a "black face" caused more "brain activity" when shown to each participant.... shiiit black people have the same mis-trust and carry the same stereotype of our own people!! but it's nothing new.... but i guarantee, it WONT last forever, not if i can help it.

i think i know why:

FACT #3: The I.Q.'s of American Blacks are from 15 to 20 points, on average, below those of American Whites. (26) (16) (18) (22)
FACT #4: These Black\White differences have been demonstrated repeatedly by every test ever conducted by every branch of the U.S. Military, every state, county, and local school board, the U.S. Dept. of Education, etc. The same ratio of difference has held true over a 40 year period. (18) (26) (24)

FACT #5: With an average I.Q. of 85, only 16% of Blacks score over 100, while half the White population does. The Black overlap of White median I.Q.'s ranges from 10 to 25 percent-- equality would require 50 percent. (31) (27) (16)


FACT #6: Blacks are 6 times as likely to have I.Q.'s of 50 to 70 which put them in the slow learner (retarded) category, while Whites are ten times more likely to score 130 or over. (15) (16) (18) (23)

FACT # 7: The U.S. government's PACE examination, given to 100,000 university graduates who are prospective professional or administrative civil-service employees each year, is passed with a score of 70 or above by 58% of the whites who take it but by only 12% of the Blacks. Among top scorers the difference between Black and White performance is even more striking: 16% of the white applicants make scores of 90 or above, while only one-fifth of one percent of a Black applicants score as high as 90--a White/Black success ration of 80/1. (27)

FACT #8: Differences between Black and White children increase with chronological age, the gap in performance being largest at the high school and college levels. (31) (26)

FACT #9: White/Black I.Q. differences are constantly excused as results of environmental variations. but at least five studies that have attempted to equate socio-economic backgrounds of the two races indicate no significant change in relative results. As environment improves, the Black does better but so does the White. The gap is not decreased. (26) In fact, extensive research by DR. G.J. McGurk, a.ssociate Professor of Psychology at Villanove University, reveals that the gap in intelligence between Blacks and Whites INCREASES where socio-economic levels of both races are raised to the middle classes. (18)

FACT #10: In 1915, Dr. G.W. Ferfuson took 1000 school children in Virginia, divided them into 5 racial categories, and tested them for mental aptitude. On average. full-blooded Blacks scored 69.2% as high as Whites. Three-quarter Blacks scored 73.0% as high as Whites. One-half Negroes scored 81.2% as high as Whites. One-quarter Blacks scored 91.8% as high as Whites. All of these Blacks lived as and considered themselves "Negroes." Their environments and "advantages" or disadvantages were exactly the same. (14) Also see (26) pg 452.

FACT #11: Results of the Army Beta test given by the U.S. Army to over 386,000 illiterate soldiers in WWI showed Negro draftees to be "inferior to the Whites on all types of tests used in the Army." Additionally, tests were conducted upon pure Blacks, Mulattoes, and Quadroons. It was found that "the lighter groups made better scores." (14)

FACT #12: Studies conducted with identical twins raised apart in radically different environments provide conclusive evidence that over-all influence of heredity exceeds that of environment in a ratio of about 3 to 1. (41)

FACT #13: Even when Blacks and Whites have the same backgrounds, in terms of family income and childhood advantages, Blacks still have average I.Q. scores 12 to 15 points lower than comparable Whites. This includes cases where Black children have been adopted by White parents. Their I.Q.s may be improved by environment, but they are still closer to their biological parents than their adoptive parents. (3) (15) (26)

FACT #14: Equalitarian ideologists often discount I.Q. test results with the excuse that they are culturally biased. Nonetheless, NO ONE, not the NAACP nor the United Negro College Fund, nor NEA had been able to develop an intelligence test which shows Blacks and Whites scoring equally. (15) (42) (3)

FACT # 15: American Indians, who often live in conditions far worse than American Blacks during their entire lives, still consistently outscore them on I.Q. tests. (3) (27)

FACT #16: The offspring of interracial marriages tend to have lower I.Q.s than the white parent. (11) (26)

youve been surfin around that KKK site too much man
hahaha

nah but those are facts. its not racist its reality. also on the same page it says

FACT #28: Blacks have arms which are longer, relative to body height, than those of Whites. This feature, together with their much thicker cranial bones, gives Black athletes an advantage over Whites in boxing. The skeletal and muscular peculiarities of Negroes' lower limbs have given them considerable success as sprinters, but have left them relative undistinguished as distance runners. (39) (27)

bottom line is whites are better than blacks in some areas and blacks are better than whites in some areas. in the case of this topic, maybe those white ex cons were more qualified (or smarter) than the blacks with no criminal records. nobody gets mad that basketball teams are 98% black so dont get mad that whites get called back for corporate jobs more. all men(races) are not created equal. all men are created different.

First off, all of those "facts" you stated are OLD studies. We had a big debate of similar listed facts 7 years ago when I was in High School. My WHITE teacher acknowledged it was very outdated and he also said it probably was exagerrated since the people doing the studies were ALL WHITE! If there are no blacks to monitor a study like this, it's easy for whites to lie about the results. In fact, white people as a whole have ALWAYS tried to make black people feel inferior and that concept remains the same with those bullsh*t "facts" you listed. You get hate from me for being so ignorant!

Secondly, Its funny what you say in the quote above because black people win every marathon there is.

here is a BLACK man admitting these facts has NOTHING to do with racism:

when it comes to academics, blacks as a whole ARE "inferior". when it comes to other things whites may be "inferior" to blacks. WE ARE DIFFERENT.

FACT #17: Among human races numerous studies have been made of the comparative weight of White and Negro brains with results that fell within the range of about an 8-12 percent lower weight for the Negro brain. Such studies have been conducted by Bean, Pearl, Vint, Tilney, Gordon, Todd, and others. (23) (27)

FACT #18: In addition to the difference in brain weight, the Negro brain grows less after puberty than the white. Though the Negro brain and nervous system mature faster than the white brain, its development is arrested at an earlier age which limits further intellectual advancement. (22) (27)

FACT #19: The thickness of the supragranular layer (the outside layer) of the Negro brain is about 15 percent thinner, and its convolutions are fewer and more simple, on average, than that of the White brain. (9)

FACT #20: The frontal lobes of the Negro brain, responsible for abstract conceptional reasoning, are smaller relative to body weight, less fissured, and less complex than those of the White brain. (9) (27) (23)

these are facts dude. you dont have to be racist to figure out that whites and blacks are different. whites are more qualified in some areas and blacks are more qualified in others. thats the bottom line.

first of all guy...two of the jobs that were mentioned in the list where deli worker and telemarketer, i dont know about u but working in a deli is far from "corporate" to me. i really don't think i would need too much credential wise or college wise to make a sandwich or answer phones and read a damn script off 2 ppl (now if you were a drug dealer i maybe can see why a telemarketingn company may want your "selling skills"). the real bottom line is there still are stereotypes in the world when it comes down to race and i am black but i will be the first to say that race card is pulled often. but don't bring that bullshyt here talkn bout its fact man...the truth is that everything in that "fact" article has to do with racist white ppl feeling the need to fabricate reasonable scientific or genetic reason as to why things are the way they are to make themselves feel better at the end of the day. the truth is that workplaces have prejudice, i real time example of that is that a guy can't be a hooter's waiter (that may seem obvious but it'z just an example of how it can be possible, sure jobs arent supposed to discriminate but it's done whether u know it or not because you just base judgement off the little bubble you live in called a city theres a damn lot more cities than you know of and u don't know a damn thing about whats going on there). the reason why we are so quick to say that we believe articles like that is cuz we've experience shyt like thiz b4, i consider myself very smart and im not even that damn black, im light skinned i dress nice i play the part to the tee, but ive went thru some bs b4. so we will automatically believe that sinces theres thousands and thousands more citys out there, there for damn sure has to be more treatment like this around, and its tru if you anna believe racism is gone or not, it hasn't and that goes for every race in some way shape or form. if anyone applies themself the way they should they can achieve anything thats how it should work...and the fact of the matter is i dont think employers are racist or anything i just think that just like regular everyday people on your block have there own preset perception of certain ppl, the owners of these establishmentz are governed on those same beliefs, cuz in the end there ppl too and would know everything (as stated earlier by someone else) that the girl who rolled her window up at the black guy when he approached her knew and thought, or the one who clutched her purse. those people arent racist but stereotypes have taken hold of em, same goes with black ppl or ne race of ppl and itz wrong and has been wrong for quite some time now.

the "corporate jobs" remark wasnt in reference to this article. secondly those facts are TRUE. anybody can say the sky aint blue but nobody can prove it. i also find it ironic you say "i consider myself very smart and im not even that damn black, im light skinned" and one of the FACTS you say that is made up by "racist white people" is:

FACT #11: Results of the Army Beta test given by the U.S. Army to over 386,000 illiterate soldiers in WWI showed Negro draftees to be "inferior to the Whites on all types of tests used in the Army." Additionally, tests were conducted upon pure Blacks, Mulattoes, and Quadroons. It was found that "the lighter groups made better scores." (14)

maybe god is the racist
