Wage Gap Between Blacks and Whites Worst in 40 Years

 

Studies have shown that applicants with "black sounding names" like Jamal are less likely to get a call back than applicants with names that appear white. Wilson also cited the skyrocketing incarceration rates of thousands of black men and women in the 1980s and 1990s who were pulled out of the workforce and have since struggled to get back in.

Our school district is always begging for teachers of color to apply. The salary is determined by years of experience and is the same for everyone - so no wage gap.

Students REALLY need to see people who look like them in teacher roles. The school faculties REALLY need diversity. But we have SOOOO few applicants of color.

Are you a white male? What have you done to rid yourself of your "privilege?

 

I keep those things to myself. But it is bigger than one person. Can only do what I can do. Not sure I can rid myself of being white and privileged in this country any more than a person of color can rid themselves of being a person of color.
