    I'm not going to bore you with detailing the obvious culprits like affirmative action. Instead, let me focus on something a little more subtle such as the culture of their churches. Black churches are steeped in racially divisive idealogies such as Black Liberation theology. The whole concept is that blacks are still a suppressed group and need to liberate...and, I don't know about anyone here, but I've never heard of a black man or woman in shackles workin the cotton fields in my time. The entire idea is an affront to the freedom blacks achieved and it impresses upon them an idea that they are victims. That victimhood goes right out the door on Sunday morning and carries over into a feeling of hopelessness when the parishioner shows up to work Monday morning. What should be an encouragement to achieve and rise up has now become a reminder that you're just a victim. So where is the point of ambition? And then external forces like affirmative action to that and it's the elephant in the room no one wants to talk about.
    Now out of curiosity, have you gone to black churches very often?

    I think there is very little prejudice in the white man's world.
    There is affirmative action culturally so that a company can claim they are an equal opportunity employer. Black's are welcomed in my social circle, although there is only one I know. I am an engineer and blacks don't tend to go for those jobs.

    It is on the heads of the blacks to raise themselves up. This culture they have in poorer communities is insane, the gangsta culture, and it includes their attitudes toward other races and gays. It is on them.
    Study suggests bias against 'black' names on resumes | HR Magazine | Find Articles at BNET

    To test whether employers might discriminate against job applicants with black-sounding names, associate professors of economics Marianne Bertrand with Chicago's Graduate School of Business and Sendhil Mullainathan with MIT conducted an elaborate experiment. They fabricated resumes for multiple "phantom" job seekers with common black and white names. The professors then sent out nearly 5,000 resumes for 1,300 job openings advertised in newspapers and on online job sites throughout Chicago and Boston.

    The results are a bit disturbing, the researchers admit. Applicants with white-sounding names were 50 percent more likely to be contacted for job interviews than those with typical black names. There were no significant differences between the rates at which men and women were contacted.

    You made a claim, and I'm asking if you have personal knowledge about the claim, or whether it is second hand knowledge.

    It also says
    Bertrand acknowledged that employers could not conclusively determine the race of a job applicant from a resume. However, she contended that the study clearly showed a bias among employers based on perceptions.

    "I believe our study clearly shows that when employers or hiring managers see a name that might indicate race, or at least the applicant's social class, they appear to react negatively to-wards it," Bertrand says.

    I am not the topic of the thread. My personal knowledge would only be anecdotal at best, which is not acceptable reference.

    If there is something you wish to refute in my post, I am more than happy to discuss that. However, I am not willing to discuss my personal experience within the context of this discussion. It's a touchy subject and mixing personal experience with it would be asking for trouble.

    Re: Attacked Asian Students Afraid To Go to School

    This is a blog. Normally I would use a simple blog to show support for my premis but this is very well written and supported by a study showing bias on the part of colleges showing bias toward blacks at the expense of asians and whites. Interesting.

    I don't see any problem with their names. No one chooses their birth name.

    That's fine, you can hire them, I won't....
    The sad truth is that any time you hire a 'monority', you leave yourself open to all kinds of claims of harassment, discrimination, etc.....
    From a business standpoint worth it, IMO.....
