    Exactly because it's ILLEGAL. Which means it is not "sanctioned" by any institutions.

    How racially motivated of a crime is rape?

They sat for three hours and were joking about how they could run this girl around. She'd ask if anyone wanted a refill and one would say yes the minute she came back, another would. They left her a dollar on a 100 dollar bill after clogging her station up from 7-10 on a saturday night. I see that stuff all the time. its racism pure and simple.
    Yes I'm sure this is a widespread problem. A huge problem among 2-star steakhouses.

    Again it depends on how you define racism. Prejudice, while sad, often lacks the power to harm. As some define racism, that is when you have that power. When you can deny employment, housing, access due to nothing more than race. That kind of power largely resides with whites.

    Your example is largely just jerks, some young white jerks have done as well.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yes, historical racism is irrelevant to measuring racism as it currently expresses itself - just as the population of 1907 is irrelevant when we are conducting a census. And whites no longer have the power of the state to express racism - making our power to be racist equal to everyone else's.

    if you abuse someone due to their race that is racism whether you are rich or poor, powerful or weak. I tire of liberal whites excusing black racism or criminal behavior by claiming they don't have institutional power.

    I have applied to my local police department twice.

    Was top of the class on the physical fitness test and scored 98% on the written test.

    Have over five years experience as a special agent on investigative status with the military and have a bachelors degree in psychology.

    I did not get hired. After the fact I found out they hired several kids straight out of high school.

    They clearly had a personal bias, whether that was anti military, or they wanted to hire billy bob because they know his daddy.

    I don't jump to conclusions and assume it was racism.

    Thank you. That's the point exactly.

    depends on the rape.

    I did two years at a family owned italian restaraunt, two years at an Outback, and another year and a half or so at a pretty expensive Brazilian steakhouse. The experience between serving black and non-black tables was pretty much universal. Waiting staff's code-word is "Canadians", and a table full of "Canadian" women or (as TD points out) kids is usually considered to be the worst table to be given - you are going to get your butt run off, quite possibly verbally abused, and then you're not going to get tipped.

    The next worst demographic (being fair) was the church crowd. Sunday Lunch is the worst overall meal time for tips. People put money in the plate at church, I suppose, and figure they have "already been generous for one day"

    Unless you consider Walmart an institution. The point is, the power is exercised.
