    Not only does what you suggest not exist, but it's in the opposite direction, with prejudice given to employees of color. Why can't you admit the obvious.

    I suspect we're not going to agree on this one. IMO, it's a bit pedantic to get hung up over the difference between racial prejudice and racism when the end result (disparate treatment based on race) is the same.

    But you're a pretty smart guy. Maybe you can explain why that is a significant difference

    That is not "prejudice".....given to blacks.

    This constant twisting of language is just so pathetic.

    And even if you want to start talking about AA, it was addressing past RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, ie, racism.....which you and your brethren deny existed in any significant amount., you still set yourself up for acknowledging its existence.

    Since I have seen it happen, I doubt you'll be able to convince me that it doesn't happen

    The cause of racial disparity on an economic level is simply not white bigotry anymore. It's cause is more of an epidemic racial discontinuous harmony. I don't deny that racial differences once existed but not for decades in any significance, it's all recently been a bunch of apologist crappola.

    I don't know what you mean by "overall". I've seen it plenty of times, in many different types of situations
