Black College Student And White HS Dropout Have The Same Chances Of Landing A Job

A Black College Student And White HS Dropout Have The Same Chances Of Landing A Job

A new study has found that employment discrimination and the residual effects of the civil rights era are still putting black college-educated Americans at a massive disadvantage compared to white college-educated Americans.

According to Think Progress, the Young Invincibles studied data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the US Census to determine the roles race and education play on the unemployment rate for recent college graduates.

The results are utterly disgusting to say the least.

The average black male with a degree from a two-year college has the same chance of obtaining a job as a white male with a high school diploma.

And a black college student has the same chances of getting a job as a white male who didn’t even graduate from high school.

The racial unemployment gap continues to plague black Millennials today, as the unemployment rate for blacks ages 18 to 34 as of last month was 16.6 percent compared to 7.1 percent for white Millennials.

Researchers concluded that hiring discrimination, the incarceration rates for young black males and the lack of wealth in many black families due to our history of hiring discrimination are mainly to blame for these harrowing statistics.

Less inherited wealth typically goes hand in hand with high deficits in black families.

The average white male with a college degree has a net worth of around $75,000 while that of a college-educated black male is less than $17,500.

The study found some surprisingly encouraging news pertaining to higher education, however, in that black Americans are much more likely than whites to increase their incomes and employment opportunities from getting an additional degree.

A degree gives a black male a 146 percent higher chance of employment than a white male, Think Progress reports, and a bachelor’s degree raises the average black male’s median wage by $100,000 per year compared to just $6,100 per year for a white male.

The racial gap gets smaller for black women when college degrees are factored in as well.

The employment gap between black and white men with bachelor’s degrees is just 5 percent and just 3 percent for women.

But black men are still twice as likely as white men to drop out of high school and half as likely to continue with their education after college.

Young Invicibles believes this problem can be solved by increasing the distribution of scholarships for black students, investing in community colleges and Pell Grants and the introduction of programs similar to Affirmative Action in the five states where it has been banned.

i was first told something similar by a professor in college and then again when i was in the workforce.  they said that a black person with a college degree is equal to white person with a high school diploma.   i didnt actually believe it until i saw it for my self.
