And I would add that even if it's not employers themselves that are engaging in racist behavior (either consciously or subconsciously), this is still evidence of institutionalized racism.

I don't have a super cool internet study that i can refer you to, if that's what you are asking for.
also, i tend to have a bit more common sense approach to issues ... instead of having the knee jerk reactions of saying " well, obviously employers are racists and look for white people to hire instead of black people" I tend to believe that employers are looking for the best skill set they can find that can help their business in the most efficient manner possible.
I'm not saying the disparity between blacks and everyone else is due purely to racism, but to deny that racism exists in the labor market is ignoring reality. And btw, racism CAN still exist without racists, believe it or not.

I wish liberals would try to understand that unemployment in blacks was actually lower than whites before minimum wage. Ask yourself this, if people are racist how can that be true? What I'm telling you is there is reasons outside of racism for the problem you are talking about. Please, please, please, look into it.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
