Skip to comments.Crossing the road is more dangerous for African Americans: New study says

A new study that tested the willingness of drivers to stop for people depending on their race has shown up some disconcerting conclusions. Portland State University-based Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) had six men - three black and three white - of similar age and build and dressed in identical 'neutral' outfits cross the same street in Portland at separate intervals. The street had a crosswalk that was not governed by traffic lights, leaving the onus to stop with the driver, according to The Huffington Post. Trained observers watched the study out of sight from the traffic and recorded how the drivers reacted to each pedestrian.
Each man crossed 15 times each, allowing for 168 drivers to unwittingly be involved in the report. The study found that drivers were less likely to stop for the black pedestrians than they were the white ones. The observers noted that black pedestrians were passed by twice as many cars as the white pedestrians, and waited 32 percent longer to cross.

If you have ever been stopped by a black standing in the middle of the road. Chances are you will never do it again...and you will drive with your doors locked.
That came to my mind also.. ..I would say the same study should be made on sending conservative whites across the street see how many stop then..
How about an experiment to see how many cabbies stop for blacks versus whites?
I was shopping yesterday and almost got run over by an African American, aka black lady. She wasn’t stoppin’ for some crackuh to cross the road.
This stuff is such BS.
Was the study done at night?
Maybe its because so many inner city people have an “I dare you” attitude about traffic.
I hate going in town because of people who seem to deliberately wander out into traffic and then take their time about it. Maybe stop and yell at someone on a porch or wait for someone to catch up.

Did the study take into account the drivers level of experience with aggressive black guys who step out into the road and slow walk, apparently to make you stop and to keep you stopped as long as they felt like? This isn’t just common it’s DEAD common.
Jesse Jackson himself said that when he was walking down a street and heard someone following, he would be relieved to turn around and see it was a white guy.
All of this in libtard Portland, no less.
Just another reason for blacks to hate white people. We try to run them over every chance we get.
It might be their preternatural aversion to crosswalks.
While the white motorist is stopped in the middle of the street he is exposed, vulnerable, and subject to attack.
I worked in the Hunting Park and K&A areas of Philly in the late 90s. I fully get what you are saying.
One more thing;
It is high amusement in certain areas of Philly for blacks to speed their cars directly at white pedestrians. They enjoy seeing the look of terror and the mad scramble of the white pedestrian to get out of the way.
LOL - They also need to do a study involving women, old people, children, pets, transsexuals, Asian, Hispanic, blondes, bald men. The funding could go on forever.
I think it's the crosswalks.
The crosswalks are racist.
Remember the Philly grade school teacher in the Clintoon years who taught that Egyptian blacks had wings and could fly ...until White Europeans came along and cut them off. She said she did this to “build the Urban Ute’s “self esteem”.
It’s what they do!
The study was conducted in Portland - a big LIBERAL city. I guess liberals are racist.
Walking in the middle of the road when a car needs to pass is more dangerous for African-Americans than any other group because they do it so much more often. Also, they refuse to move and make cars go around them.
