Census Bureau: black women make more money than white women

One half of all black women with a college degree work for the government.

For years this website has reported on the extreme affirmative action schemes used by government agencies. Blacks now make up over 18% of the entire Federal workforce nationwide. Even though they only make up 12% of the US population. Some Federal agencies have a workforce that is 50%  black. If you look at state, city, and county governments, you will typically find a disproportionately high amount of black employees all over the nation.

No one benefits more than black women. Many Federal agencies, such as the US Post Office, have a hiring scheme that puts black females at the top of the list. Black women are hired first. Then other minorities, then white females, then white male veterans, then white male non-veterans.

Because of this, a staggering 50% of all black women with a college degree work for the government. Let that sink in. One half of all black women with a college work for a county, city, state, or the Federal government.

Keep in mind that a huge percentage of all Federal jobs are simply “make work” jobs. In other words, they exist solely to create a physical job, not because they are needed. Federal jobs, on average, pay more than the private sector. They also have lavish benefits. Many states, counties, and cities also create jobs that are not necessary. When George W. Bush was pushing the Patriotic Act, he boasted that the creation of the DHS would create “much needed jobs.”

Because of state sponsored discrimination. Black women with a college degree, on average, make more money than white women with a college degree.

The Census Bureau just reported that in 2003, black women with a Bachelor’s Degree averaged a significantly higher income than white women with a bachelor’s degree. The Seattle Times then offered a completely fictional explanation. The Seattle Times falsely claimed that black women with a Bachelor’s degree average more hours than their white counterparts.

This data is for 2003. The disparity is probably far higher now.

From Seattle Times…

Black and Asian women with bachelor’s degrees earn slightly more than similarly educated white women, and white men with four-year degrees make more than anyone else.

A white woman with a bachelor’s degree typically earned nearly $37,800 in 2003, compared with $41,100 for a college-educated black woman and nearly $43,700 for a college-educated Asian woman, according to data being released today by the Census Bureau. Hispanic women took home slightly less, at $37,600 a year.
