All capitalism requires is bankers lending money at interest.
You can bat backwards and forwards with ‘studies’ and racially sounding names, but Barack Hussein Obama became a president and his name doesn’t get much more ‘black’ than that. Conversely, Mike Smith a young white man shuffling along with trousers down to his knees and smoking a joint pretending he’s from the hood stays on welfare.
It’s not names and it isn't racism, it’s buying into a sub culture and behaviour that drags people down.
It's far more like a sting operation. With this, we know how many companies are trashing civil law and how wide spread discrimination of the black community is.
By labelling it a "human experimentation" you seem to hint that it's like a secret medical experiment the US government unleashed on the black community without their knowledge. That medical experiment got people killed, while made others suffer in pain their entire life and so were prohibited to have a normal job and family life etc. In this case: nobody got hurt. So the hint you're making is totally over the top.
....To this day people don't accept Obama because of his heritage. And when he ran, today's Trump supporters criticized his name and wondered how he ever got the job.
People still think he isn't American..remember the birther nonsense?
Libo math I guess. Nothing wrong with mine.
So what is your basic point? That america is a racist crap hole? Try the same study in Japan.
A study that does not involve real people. So who are these racists who are not wanting to hire people with so called black names? What color are they? You assumed they were all white didn't you? So no poc work in these HR depts?
Of course on a thread about diversity you have to bring up the abysmall failure of blacks in America and blame it on anybody except those people. So typically libo.
Half of America accepted him, the other half didn't, but my point was that his name was no hidderance to success.
Widespread? They were names! Not real people.
And yes I do not trust these libo democrat academics who will always manipulate data and method for the desired outcome.
Why do Asians make 27% more than whites? Did white racists forget to scew them?
As for our racist past thank the democrat party. They did it all.
His African birth did not hurt him either. Or the fact he went to a hate America-hate whitey church.
Not to spoil anybody's day but there is no such thing as diversity. All things in existence are unique.
Do you see any other species on the planet bitching and complaining about every damn thing 24/7?
Whut? What Economics textbook was that in?
Names have an affect on success in America.
Who is "us"? And probably a more important question, who is "not us".
Oh... you mean like the Constitution says
I'm beginning to sympathize with your statement. There are only two cultures in the world: the culture of bigots, and the culture of non-bigots. I hope you weren't expecting us non bigots to be the ones to move... or were you? I'm afraid nobody else is moving, so you should go ahead and lead by example. There are many isolated islands in the Pacific where you can go to and create your idyllic bigoted society and the ocean will be your "border".
you think mike smith is on welfare? he's made several million in crypto currency and is on his way to a trump rally.
musk's mars colony will have totally free speech and unlimited open carry. lots of non diverse people are ready for lift off.
Name one you have read and I'll tell you the chapter its covered in.
In my country, in many industries, having a white name has less power than having a non-white name. The reason being that the non-whites are often better candidates for that particular work.
Are you going to call that racism? How about brown supremacy? Let's see what you have to say.
Could you be more transparent?
I don't think your black Americans got the memo. Care to explain?
Dude, stop with the ancient and infantile tropes.
Nah, he never got to a Trump rally.
If someone is related to a culture which suggests stability, industry, ambition, responsibility etc (like say .. those with an Indian, Korean, Kenyan, or Chinese name), others will make a space for that person for entirely pragmatic reasons. It will have NOTHING to do with the way they look, or anything as remotely puerile as the colour of their skin - though we know that kind of petty and vacuous stuff excites Progressives.
Behaviour is everything. Don't like the way your own ethnic minority is perceived (as a result of crappy behaviour)? Your effort needs to go into ensuring you and your family do better - not in fighting the perfectly reasonable assumptions made by the world.
better then right wing fakeness.
That due to racism and people's social economical background that some got it a lot easier then others. And the OP is wrong saying "Diversity is the belief that everyone is equal.". It's wish that everybody should be getting an equal chance. And such a thing will lead to diversity.
While your idea of just working hard and you will get there... that's simply not true. Loads of people work their butts off everyday, and they aint going anywhere.
Example: you think Hunter Biden got that member of the board position in Ukraine for working hard? How about Jared Kushner's position in the White House?
The science behind it is not hard to understand. It seems you either not smart enough or simply unwilling to admit to this. So sorry. But most of all, you are in no position to call it bullcrap or whatever.... without a source to back it up.
The only diversity I oppose is alternatives to freedom. Those who would empower themselves over others or empower others over me are my ideological enemies. Everyone else is just an individual I'm happy to coexist with.
maybe bitcoin will be up tomorrow and he can move back into the pent house.
Actually the difference in response rate was rather modest:
According to the activists who did the study out of 1000 resumes sent the so called white names received 250 responses and the so called black names 230 responses. That's 8%, 20/250=8%.
Separate names with a comma.
