Some amazing but true facts

29 replies 1 views Edited Nov 27, 2006
I picked up a book recently, which I normally don't do, and it has some pretty interesting things, what do you think?
 
  • Proved: People with "black names" have lower employment rate than people with "white names"
  • Teachers actually can cheat more and more expertly than students. (they actually erase some answers on state tests and put in the correct ones)
  • Crack drug dealing is currently the most profitable job
  • Why, in the 90's, did the percentage of violence decrease? Answer: abortion legalized.

 

I forgot the name of the book, but it's definately not some old book. These facts are proven. So what do you think?

Also if you sound black on the phone you have people acting meaner than if you sound white.

Dateline or some news group like that ran a story on it. It's true. I watched it and saw it for myself.

They say that racism is horible, but dont we act the same way to "annoying" or "unpopular" people? I mean seriously! If you talked to someone with the highest, squeekiest voice on earth, with a lisp, and was constantly mispernouncing words, qouldnt you want to talk to someone elce, or just hang up?
