Low-income white men in the

Why such a glaring difference?







                    
                    


“We see a very clear pattern of white privilege that probably extends
back a few generations to Baltimore’s boom times [in the ’40s to
’50s],” Alexander says. “I personally think there’s a lot of racism in
the mix, but we can’t quantify that.”




The study also found other interesting black-white disparities.
Middle- and upper-class white men were much more likely to report using
drugs, binge drinking and smoking, followed by lower-income white
men—findings that contradict the stereotype of inner-city black men on
drugs. These men were also more likely to have an arrest record, the
survey found, while low-income black men were more likely to have a
conviction: 49 percent compared with 41 percent of low-income white men.
But serving time in prison didn’t hold white men back when it came to
finding jobs.

what is that you people.....racism is not a big factor anymore? just work harder you say?

why? because without valid studies people make baseless claims

this provides some evidence of what is happening in our world

sorry but hearsay and anecdotal stories usually don't hold weight beyond a regular everyday conversation

studies help shape pubic policy

maybe I should make a how studies shape public policy thread








I'm all for it

I work for the epidemiology department at my job and our studies look at teen pregnancy programs, community preparedness for disasters, pubic aid, other health surveillance studies, etc...

they are federally funded so our government is interested (to a degree) in what is happening in our society

besides reporting our findings to the government that may ultimately change pubic policy, we also hope to publish our results in peer reviewed journal articles and present our work at professional conferences (though most times the focus is on the methodology we use), this also increases the audience for such findings

so when studies like these (though not all have a representative sample or have the best conclusions drawn from the findings, etc.. - but I find this happens more for smaller university studies with mostly white researchers) come out we should read them and try to understand how these findings do legitimize what so many of us see and how we can then take these findings and effect change

I like studies. Especially when they're acedemic/government studies and use the right procedures. 
However, wayy too often Journalists and reporters will take the study and draw the wrong conclusion from it, or misrepresent the statistics in the study.  And then the average idiot reads the article and thinks they're an expert on the subject now.

wow, this post came off aggressive.

I like reading studies. Data doesn't lie. There are some people that will not believe the realiities of our society unless its in the form of a line graph or pie chart.

However its becoming more and more important to read the actual study because even news outlets can draw hard and fast conclusions that the study does not necessarily assert or disprove.
