That is my perception But I am not disgruntled about it. All of life is not fair. And I have been the specific loser of reverse discrimination. One was a case of work place discrimination that I took to a lawyer. She said, "you have a lawful case but you are the wrong race & gender to win." I knew what she meant & just went on. Then there's the WIC story that I posted earlier. There are 2 other experiences that I have had I be redundant.<quoted text>
That might be your perception, Pops, but white males still make more money:
"As of 2009, the median weekly wage for African American and Hispanic workers was about 65 percent and 61 percent that of White workers, respectively."
I may be niave but I believe that many specific cases that are attributed to racism, may be just or even more accurately caused by cultural or behavior differences . There are tendencies for different groups to listen to diff music, drive diff cars, clothes, hair styles, speech patterns, etc & that's just fine.
Just about everyone knows this. When One of my sons was job hunting, he dressed as he typically would in the casual style of his day. I told him that he should dress up (simply meaning better than casual). He replied that that was the way all of his friends dressed. I agreed with him & added, "that's why you should dress better, that's who you are competing with for the jobs."
You & I & others have been around long enough to know that the business world & the social/casual world are NOT the same. So we need to behave/play & just flat out be different in each of those worlds or quit complaining. A few axioms come to mind as examples but I would likely word them wrong so I'll spare you....& myself. lol
