It seems odd to me how people think that if the majority of people in this country are white that somehow, there would be an equal distribution of the races within every single given industry.
Not even because of what Thomas Sowell states, that different cultures value different things, and thus, their skillsets are varied, but it doesn’t make sense that a majority of people that are white wouldn’t make up majority percentages in any given field. It may sound cute to say that they are all racist, even though this doesn’t add up to the facts, but the fact that people think that, say, Asian Americans, which is an even smaller percentage of the American population than African Americans would somehow both be evenly represented among every given industry is simply illogical on the most basic level that there simply aren’t enough people of all of the different races to be equally represented among all of the different industries. There simply aren’t enough people percentage wise among all of the different races to all be equally represented, so any attempts to make this so is illogical because there simply aren’t enough people. You would have to make whites stop having children while making minorities have more children than they are currently having to have an equal representation among all of the different races among all of the different industries. How is this not factored in when people are ranting and raving about this subject? I don’t understand it, and this is why I do not listen to anyone but myself and my own thoughts, because for some reason, I’m one of the few people that I’ve ever met that is willing to take the time and figure out facts instead of just trying to do good in the world.
