Skip to comments.The 33 Whitest Jobs in America
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.

What's lol funny is who is to blame for Whitie taking all these jobs.
(See the UPDATE)

They're also sturdy, rarely yielding over the last 40 years.Ah, the fruits of liberalism. Also a nice way to say that its going to get much worse with the increased liberalism in politics these days.
Central Pennsylvania is something like 0.001% black.
Who do ya THINK is doing all of the farming out there?
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.”
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.
We must institute mandatory ethnic quotas immediately!
Great idea, sign me up for the NBA and I’ll get my contract talks started.
What about writers for leftist media outlets? Skewed toward whitey pretty much I’d wager.
I am a professional banjo player...
lol Are you bringing logic to a sh*t throwing contest?
Look for the union label.
So I wonder what are the “blackest jobs” in America?
Airport baggage red caps. Have never seen one who wasn’t black.
“I’ll take ‘things involving work’ for $100, Alex” /s
Field goal kicker in the NFL?
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.
What’s the percentage of white writers at place like The Atlantic?
My dogs’ vet is Asian (Korean)... minority of a minority...
Or the “yellowist” or the “brownist”?
Referring to skin color to categorize people is inherently offensive.
That would be the TSA, at least at FT Lauderdale Airport. lol

I’m pretty sure a lot of blacks are afraid of dogs so that may explain why so few black vets.
I would guess, based on my own observations, that it would be janitorial-type jobs.
Some occupations aren’t compatible with affirmative action.....
Apparently the pinhead moderator at The Atlantic doesn’t approve of my comments....
he forgot to mention, chairman of the federal reserve, Hollywood producers and new York money mangers. they’re minority to be sure, but white.
“So I wonder what are the blackest jobs in America?”

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....
Just 33 are white?
An untouchable public person.
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.
also...govt jobs....they seem to take bureucrat jobs a lot....
the 81% of jobs done by white people is telling....we're doing the work of the country....maybe we're the fools...
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.
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.
Rapper....oops, sorry didn’t see “hoodlum”
The Amish, but not the kind we talk about on FR?
They forgot editors at leftwing magazines and papers.
