A brave John Hawkins writes “Blacks are, on average, more racist than whites” and “It’s not racist to be scared of young black men on the street”:
Sure, black Americans may occasionally have to confront racism. But, black Americans can — and often do — benefit from their race as well. Everybody knows about government mandated Affirmative Action and racial set asides, but black Americans often get special treatment that goes beyond that in the workplace.
For example, I’ve had managers that have been honest enough to admit to me that they’re much less likely to fire a poorly performing black worker because they feel the need to have a long paper trail to protect themselves from discrimination complaints. Along those same lines, I’ve had a higher-up in a major company tell me that he’d hire a talented black salesman over an equally talented white salesman just to make the company look diverse.
