It doesn't work for any business of any account any more.So, you have no point? Just mentioning that the study's methodology wouldn't have worked if they had been studying Wal Mart?
Hardly if as you say that whites were called for interviews with everything being equal nearly 2 and a half times as often as blacks. How tough would that have been to have shown?Why would it be easy to prove? It's insanely hard to prove discrimination...
So, not exactly strict enforcement at present. I would support strict enforcement. For example, I think we should ramp up the investigation of companies that are way out of whack with the norms for their industries and we should reduce the burden of proof for discrimination suits by allowing plaintiffs to use statistical evidence that a company has a history of not hiring members of their group. You say you don't have a problem with strict enforcement, but I suspect you aren't on board with that. Or are you?
least biased network on the air.
As for Dunn's complaint about Fox News' coverage of the Obama campaign, a study by the Pew Research Center showed that 40 percent of Fox News stories on Obama in the last six weeks of the campaign were negative. Similarly, 40 percent of Fox News' stories on Obama's Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, were negative.
On CNN, by contrast, there was a 22-point disparity in the percentage of negative stories on Obama (39 percent) and McCain (61 percent). The disparity was even greater at MSNBC, according to Pew, where just 14 percent of Obama stories were negative, compared to a whopping 73 percent of McCain stories—a spread of 59 points.
[QUOTE=Grant;1059772108]Blacks dont have a disadvantage either lol, they have africa .
I agree that Blacks were at a disadvantage but Latinos? How so? Latinos at one time controlled much of what is the USA and they still have Mexico , Central America and South America. How are they at a disadvantage?
Instead of trying to make sense of the senseless I will just say, yeah it's called racism, they don't know why it's still around.Of course it can't, and your statements verify that.
It's actually why we have to make up for their lack of being hired, you see... the government didnt just make this up for no reason to oppress you so you could feel like a victim.What bias? Show where there is race based bias?
Part of not having access to jobs is a problem that perpetuates their 'cultural' issue. =\There are certainly problems in some Communities, Black, White and Latino, but that is more a cultural problem rather than anything race driven.
That doesn't address what I said. They don't get hired at the same rates having the same qualifications...Nonsense. There have been many examples where people have gotten along despite racial differences.
Who said incompetent, I dont think your debating but attempting to scratch at anything that could be construed as an argument.So employers should hire incompetent people to meet government quotas? Do you have any idea yet why businesses are moving out of the United States?
Quack quack... you miss the point.Are you still a racist after 45 years? Are those still the conditions in your State?
Shall I spell it out for everyone plan and simple.
There is an unexplained structural deficiency on the hiring of qualified minority members, it is being made up. I don't see whats so hard about this. I know racism is likely a shameful part of Americas past, but I don't see why you have to turn a blind eye to the fact its remnants are still around. Nobody is being an overt racist an not hiring. The people who dont hire blacks are likely not aware that they are contributing and prepetuating the problem.
I can tell you really think youre getting somewhere with this, you're not. If 150 million of 300 million are minority, do you seriously expect that if 10% of them who dont even get past an interview would actually have a case against someone who isnt an outright racist who tends to hire a lower ratio of minorities out of his selection of candidates subconsciously? Your solution is absurd, even if they could sue wed need to raise a dozen million more lawyers and thatd cause far more resentment if it actually played out to the degree of hiring disparity that exists.And somehow creating racist organizations are? Now yes, why do we create laws if we have absolutely no intention of enforceing them? (I'm just argueing this, we do enforce them).
Do you not have to enforce these other "solutions"? Why would you not support legally enforcing our laws? Or is it really not about racism?
Jobs ask for photos... also Jacquelyn Moesha Brown-Quincy Vs. Susy Blanche Vs. Anita Santa Maria de la Gudalajara on the application may tell you something.Today by and large one is not able to tell the race of an applicant until they get an interview.
It is, they're conforming quite nicely to our societal norms nowadays.Despite that- despite the fact that we are continuing to discriminate against blacks to a massive extent-
"Dr. Tim Groseclose, a professor of political science and economics at UCLA, has evaluated various media programs based on think tank citations to map liberal verses conservative slants. He has said that, based on his research, PBS NewsHour is the most centrist news program on television and the closest to a truly objective stance."
