The text in the link also states that the study group is college graduates, not the wider community. Therefore, the data is examining a group of middle-class people with access to college who are upper-level hires.tck62 wrote: ↑Mon Oct 21, 2019 12:47 pm"The uncontrolled pay gap at each job level is largest for Black or African American men, whereas Asian men continue to earn more than White men at each job level.

It would appear it's just more and more people are trying to blame racism when it's really economic inequality that is at play, the 1% has a vested interest in steering us into race based assumptions instead of economic based recognition's in case Go forbid the public starts insisting we bring back our labor unions and crack down on the foreign workers.
"The Forces Driving Middle-Aged White People's 'Deaths Of Despair'
'In a follow-up to their groundbreaking 2015 work, they say that a lack of steady, well-paying jobs for whites without college degrees has caused pain, distress and social dysfunction to build up over time. The mortality rate for that group, ages 45 to 54, increased by a half percent each year from 1999 to 2013."

Sorry JAF it's not the skin color it's the lack of green. The folks with green sure want us to think it's skin color based so we don't try to take their green by forcing them to raise the paltry wages they've been paying that is leading to the poor health outcomes we've chronicled above.
The sooner we can throw off the corporate propaganda steering us to see race and get all the poor Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians and Natives to look around and see we're all riding in the same boat the better.
The author does include poverty in the mix.
Ok so let's say for arguments sake, I agree with you on it being socio-economic differences at the Crux
Racism contributes to the economic disparity. Black men with the same qualifications and experience still get paid less than their white counterparts. It cycles around and around, the two, racism, and the poverty gap, are inextricably linked.
This is from your link. If Asian's earn more than Whites and Whites earn more than Blacks then why are we being steered into concentrating on just Blacks and Whites instead of wondering what the Asians are doing to achieve at a higher level than Whites and Blacks?
Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander men see a higher pay over White men "when controlling for employment characteristics". In the context of the information given, that qualifier is important for the information that comes after. Which in simple terms is that stretching the argument to the best-case scenario for all control groups, Blacks still come in dead last.
Yes, Asians in America have long been considered the model of the minority groups, however, the text of that article does not evidence the statement you have made.
