Algernon Austin, an economist for the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., crunched data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and found that blacks with the same level of education as whites have consistently lower employment levels.

It doesn’t matter whether you compare high-school dropouts or workers with graduate degrees, whites are still more likely to have a job than blacks. Degrees be damned.

Interesting, you better tell Oldsport.

Sociologist Devah Pager took a novel approach to how prison affected ever growing numbers of Americans after they'd done their time -- a process all but ignored by politicians and the judicial system.

So Pager sent two young black men and two young white men out into the world to apply for perfectly real jobs. Then she recorded who got callbacks and who didn't. She soon discovered that a criminal history caused a massive drop-off in employer responses -- not entirely surprising.

But when Pager started separating out black applicants from white ones, she stumbled across the real news in her study, a discovery that shook our understanding of racial inequality and jobs to the core.

Pager's white applicant without a criminal record had a 34% callback rate. That promptly sunk to 17% for her white applicant with a criminal record.

The figures for black applicants were 14% and 5%. And yes, you read that right: in Pager's experiment, white job applicants with a criminal history got more callbacks than black applicants without one.

Pager ran a larger version of this experiment in New York City in 2004, sending teams of young, educated, and identically credentialed men out into the Big Apple's sprawling market for entry-level jobs -- once again, with one applicant posing as an ex-con, the other with a clean record.

Again Pager's African-American applicants received fewer callbacks and job offers than the whites. The disparity was particularly striking for ex-criminals: a drop off of 9 percentage points for whites, but 15 percentage points for blacks.

A 2001-2002 field experiment by academics from the University of Chicago and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for example, uncovered a sizeable gap in employer callbacks for job applicants with white-sounding names (Emily and Greg) versus black-sounding names (Lakisha and Jamal). They also found that the benefits of a better resume were 30% greater for whites than blacks.

Bison has a point.  Black unemployment among college educated blacks is 7.3% and whites 4.6%.

1. Black Americans spend over $1 billion dollars per year having our annual frat and sorority meeting in white hotels.
2. Why not cancel those meetings for ONE YEAR only and pool that money we are spending.
3.  Take $300 million of the $1 billion and buy hotels in the 30 largest cities in America with
majority black population.  Hire blacks in those cities to work in those hotels.  Outsource with black businesses in those communities to supply these hotels with the necessary goods and services.
4. All black frat and sororities would have their annual meetings in those 30 hotels.
5.  So now you not only have more employment in the targeted cities, but we are spending over $ 1 billion dollars per year in our own community.
6.  Remember we have only used $300 million of the $1 billion---we still have $700 million in reserve.  We could probably fund any black project or institution with less dependence on the federal government.

Tony Brown has been preaching this since the 70's.

Self sufficiency is going to be our only hope as a people.

I agree, but try to get some blacks to see thatbecause in their minds they have arrived.
