    Yep, just like we don't care about individual burglars or individual rapists?

    Not really. Housing discrimination is illegal. Employment discrimination is illegal. Lending discrimination is illegal.

    Get it?

    You won't be saying that after every apartment turns you down, no jobs call you back, and no banker will give you a loan. And the guy that "made no fing sense" was trying to show you that individuals who are racist can still cause problems if there isn't regulation regarding discrimination. It doesn't have to be organized racist groups or state endorsed racism. Personal prejudices can still ruin lives.

    I'd have to agree with you on that one. Ignorance, apathy, and the lack of transparency and access to unbiased information.

    Papistry registers not with me but the Catholic church tended to take care of its own. I didn't see them calling on more welfare redistribution but the programs are similar

    Pope-have more catholics

    Dems-have more Dem Voters

    Why speak badly about religion?

    The study found that job applicants with typically white first names have substantially more success than applicants with typically black first names. With all résumé qualifications being equal, one out of ten applicants in the study who had white-sounding first names was invited for a job interview, whereas only one out of fifteen applicants with black-sounding names received a similar invitation.

    "The results are having a big impact because people recognize that they're true," said Carolyn Nordstrom, president of Chicago United, a racially diverse corporate membership organization. "This study highlights the need for personal responsibility in getting rid of discrimination."

    And then there is common sense, which in terribly short supply here.
    Did they go talk to the HR personnel of these companies after the study? So they received resumes from applicants that were equal in every way except the black-sounding name. So they picked the white applicant. Did they go back and find out why?
