America’s Prejudice is Still Kicking Ass

Drivers for Uber in Boston canceled rides for men with black-sounding names more than twice as often as for other men. Black people saw notably longer wait times for a car using Uber and Lyft Inc. than white customers. The data come from a study published on today by researchers at MIT, Stanford and the University of Washington.

new study released last week by the Equal Rights Center, a D.C.-based nonprofit, found that nearly half (47 percent) of the data showed landlords favored a white female potential tenant. 28 percent of the results revealed a criminal records screening policy in place that may have an illegal impact on the basis of race.

Additionally, about half of Hispanics in the U.S. (52%) say they have experienced discrimination or have been treated unfairly because of their race or ethnicity, according to a Pew Research Center survey released in July. Among Hispanics ages 18 to 29, 65% say they have experienced discrimination or unfair treatment because of their race or ethnicity.

WOW America. How do we outgrow this already? Why do you believe we are still prejudicial in America?  We look forward to your comments.

One thought on “America’s Prejudice is Still Kicking Ass

  1. Wow. I guess I am not surprised. I live near Boston and frequent the city quite often. Fortunate for me, I never bother with Uber – because I object to the way they are blatantly waging war on the worker protections and public transportation.

    I wonder what the demographics of Uber drivers are. I heard an ad on the radio, trying to recruit drivers by saying: “get your side hustle on”. The usage of slang language here tells me that they are marketing toward young people, and to blacks/Latinos.

    Great post!
