    Well, lets tread these historical realities...

    Does slavery still exist? Is slavery still legal in the United States?

The people that fail are not qualified to join the military because the military has determined that they're more trouble than their worth - hard to teach, won't take direction or have trouble understanding what is being asked of them, don't do assigned duties very well, etc. As "employees" they're a lot of trouble and the same factors which make them such a headache for the military also make them unattractive job candidates in the civilian labor market.

    Also, RD, racial discrepancies exist even when we control for other factors like intelligence, qualifications, experience, etc.
    Knock out the obvious first and then winnow down what's left and you get a better understanding of what is really happening instead of just looking at raw numbers and assuming that everything is equal. Then we can look at the residual which cannot be explained and talk about that.

    To be fair, StillBallin is not a radical, knee-jerk liberal. He is generally pretty moderate and reasonable, unlike some of the lefties around here...

    As usual you in your partisan mind forget to ask the real questions.

    1. Why is black unemployment consistently higher than white?
    2. The sharp rise at the end is because of what?

    If you bothered asking these questions instead of using the statistics as a partisan attack tool, then maybe you would not look so foolish when you actually find out that the level which black unemployment is at now... the consistent level (yes it is high) is most of Obama's presidency, but the massive rise happened during the last president... your hero Bush.

    they affect how professional you look. You think a business is going to hire a person who doesn't bother to make themselves look professional?

    I think our culture, too often, values looks over substance, making it easier for us to quickly judge people based on how they look/dress rather than what really matters, a lot of the time.

    Then as you know that issue has more facets than just skin color. Heavy very fit people, tall versus short, good looking etc. That being said have you discussed high school drop out rates yet?
