Survey: 88% of All Blacks Believed to Have Experienced Workplace Discrimination

By Boyce Watkins, PhD on Mar 19th 2011 2:30AM

A survey taken this week at YourBlackWorld.com has revealed that 88.5% of all African American respondents believe they have been victims of workplace racial discrimination at some point in their careers. The results were nearly uniform across men and women. A small percentage (5.5%) said they do not believe they`ve ever experienced racial discrimination in the workplace, and a similar percentage (6.1%) claim they are not sure.

The results are interesting in light of the well-documented economic struggles among African Americans, including unemployment rates that are nearly double those of white Americans. According to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, black unemployment stands at 15.3%, compared to just eight-percent for white Americans. Black public figures and political leaders have been calling on the Obama Administration to use targeted economic policy in order to alleviate racial disparities in wealth and employment, but to no avail thus far.[More]

This is called "self-reporting." In a related news item, 88 percent of ex-boxers reported that they coulda been a contender.
