The 33 Whitest Jobs in America
The Atlantic ^ | 11/06/2013 | Derek Thompson

Posted on 11/07/2013 10:51:54 AM PST by Responsibility2nd

The workforce is even more stratified by race than you'd imagine. The differences in unemployment rates, participation rates, and average earnings between whites, blacks, and Hispanics aren't just stark. They're also sturdy, rarely yielding over the last 40 years.

The racial gaps are stark at the job level, too.

Whites account for about 81 percent of the workforce. But there are 33 occupations counted by the BLS (particularly those on farms, around heavy machines, in doctor's offices, and in C-suites) where whites officially account for nine in ten of all workers, or more. Here they are.

Ah, the fruits of liberalism. Also a nice way to say that it’s going to get much worse with the increased liberalism in politics these days.

I had no idea that there was so little ethnic diversity at the workplace in America.

We must institute mandatory ethnic quotas immediately!

So there is a disparity between the 81 percent white in population vs 90 per cent whites in certain jobs? What about the disparity between 13% blacks and whatever the % is overall - it’s 75 to 80 %black letter carries in Chicago, and they should be getting combat pay. As Twain said, “there are lies, damn lies, and statistics.”

Enviormental Scientist does not surprise me.

Friends daughter applied for a job at top Boston Enviro firm. She was white and they told her outright that they never hired blacks.

She was shocked out of her leftist mind.

Seems that Environmental scientists are all tools of the elite. They know who their masters are.

I worked in construction in a rural ski area. Many of the construction people came from the big city for the work, but there were no blacks among them. My theory? Big cities are good for ‘shopping,’ safe, great government-dependency distribution centers. Once in a great while we’d get a construction clean-up crew in, up from the city. There was a lot of fear in that group - fear of the dogs on the site, fear of the weather, discomfort with the tasks.

This article is hooey. ‘Trade unions keep blacks out.” whine, waaaah. So tired of the whining and complaining.

This jumped out at me. I don't think whites make up 81% of the population...
So... disparate impact?

My dad once worked for a company in a rural Pennsylvania county. They did contract work for the Federal Government. Thus they were always under the microscope for diversity hiring.

They tried and tried and tried to hire black people. Frankly none of them wanted to venture out there from the city. Lots of reasons you mentioned, but basically they did not feel very comfortable out there.

They did hire one black secretary. After giving her many, many chances they had to let her go because she could never answer the bell on Monday mornings after her hard weekend partying routine.

It is the Atlantic, so nobody is saying “look here, here’s something that ain’t hooey”.

But it is also hilarious that they are pointing at Democrat-supporting unions and accusing them of racism.

Or the “yellowist” or the “brownist”?

Referring to skin color to categorize people is inherently offensive.

I’m pretty sure a lot of blacks are afraid of dogs so that may explain why so few black vets.

When I was attending Marriage Preparation Classes at our Church with my bride-to-be, they asked us each which tactic used by the other when we had a fight did we resent the most.

She got this look of consternation on her face, and then blurted out in a harsh tone "he, he.......he uses LOGIC on me!"

Oh, the Hugh Manatees!

I would guess, based on my own observations, that it would be janitorial-type jobs.

most of those jobs require one of two things, sometimes both....long academic study OR long, hard hours ...I should add a third....work that requires working with the public and knowing how to get along....

Ok, I didn't read what the 33 jobs were but here is my thoughts. You own a business and you advertise for workers. You get some white people applying, 99% of them are well dressed, articulate, can count and do basic math and they speak real English. The Black and Hispanic applicants you interview dress like sh**, barely speak some form of Enlish, can't count and can't do basic math. Who do you hire? The educated white people or the uneducated minorities who show up hoping to luck into a gravy train.

If blacks want jobs they need to get a HS diploma(at the least), learn to speak correct English, and know basic skills such as math. However most of them prefer to remain stupid and uneducated because other wise they might be accused of "looking white", can't have that.

This is why I think the urban "black" culture is actually an ANTI-culture promoted by the left in opposition to Christian-based Western Culture.

Down here in the oil patch, a good number of trade jobs are filled by Hispanics - mechanics, electricians, refinery workers, pipeline supervisors, etc. And the refinery workers are unionized.

I realize that this is Atlantic magazine, hence spies a racist in every woodpile, but don't you think somebody there would have enough statistical chops to recognize that the difference between 81% (the percentage of workforce that is white) and 90% (the percentage of whites in most of these jobs) is...uh...not that great? And explicable by reasons other than systematic racism?

If you're a doctrinaire liberal there must be a sign of oppression in all of this, and God help anyone who thinks otherwise. Suggesting otherwise got Larry Summers canned at Harvard. "Uh...maybe fewer women like math then men?" BLASPHEMY! It's oppression, dang it, it just has to be!

I wonder how many proggies realize that the reason we don't hold political dialogues with them is because they're so goddamn boring...

It used to be that a lot of the construction labor work was done by people in the neighborhood, where it was taking place.

Guys would stop by to work as diggers, or helpers, or clean-up crew and such, but the black pride movement killed that in black neighborhoods, they don’t want that work, and haven’t for decades.

Most blacks have a very different body odor than do non-blacks. Dogs DON'T react well in many cases thus making many of them aggressive toward blacks.

That's real retarded, sir.
