''failure'' or ''agony,'' while similar bias against African-Americans
showed up in only about 70 percent of white and Asian test-takers.

FOREIGN ASIAN MEN DOCKED 23-25%, US BORN 13-20% FOR BEING ASIAN VS WHITE
Institute for Asian American Studies (U Mass Boston) Fall 2002
Marlene Kim U Mass Boston presented study that found that compensating
for all other factors, Asian men are underpaid 23-25% due to their race, despite
higher education. They should be making more, not less than foreign born white men. U.S.
born men are underpaid 13-20% due to race.

names is the difference within categories, especially Black Female.   The
differences within the other categories are not statistically significant (notice
the smaller sample sizes for Black Male).

UNEQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK IN NFL FAVORING BLACKS?
Wash Post Outlook April 2, 2000
"Economists Mark Gius and Donn Johnson of Quinnipiac College in
Connecticut found that white players in the National Football League in
the mid-1990s earned about 10 percent less than their black teammates,
after adjusting for the positions they played, years in the league, games
started and how high they were chosen in the annual draft of college
players." This may be due to the players being worth more (what???)
