"The research, by Ellis Cashmore, professor of culture, media and sport at Staffordshire, and his colleague Dr Jamie Cleland, senior lecturer in sociology, involved 1,000 football fans, professional players, referees, coaches and managers revealing their views on the dearth of black managers. More than 56% of those polled said there is racism at the top of football's hierarchy; among BME respondents, that figure was 73%. Most radically of all, over half of BME fans called for a policy similar to the Rooney rule in the US, which stipulates that all shortlists for management and coaching jobs in the National Football League must include at least one minority candidate. The Staffordshire academics report that a third of the polled football fans encouraged this type of reform."

"Cited in the suit are text messages allegedly between the bar's general manager, Walt Wyrsta, and the Wednesday-night manager, Kathryn Killian, including one from Wyrsta that read, 'We don't want black people we are a white bar!'

"Bolden's attorney, Laura Mattiacci, declined to say how the texts were obtained. In a written statement, Bolden, 29, who is still employed at McFadden's and who also works as a lawyer with Community Legal Services, said a "'culture of exclusion' exists at bars, including 'dress codes, marketing or policies by the security staff.'

"'The one constant is that it is often subtle, behind the scenes and typically, not written down. And therein lies the problem: How do you challenge a system, since it seems one cannot even prove it exists,' Bolden wrote. 'Well, now I can. I feel a sense of moral obligation to take a stand.'"

"Controversy is brewing over a city-sponsored anti-racism campaign that calls on Caucasians to recognize their 'white privilege'.

"At least one Edmonton city councillor says the campaign makes a point, while a Conservative politician is saying the wording is all wrong.

"'A white person looking for an apartment to rent does not face similar challenges that an aboriginal person does,' said councillor Amarjeet Sohi, explaining what is meant by the phrase white privilege.

"But Ryan Hastman, the federal Conservative candidate for the Edmonton-Strathcona, said he's concerned because the campaign's focus on white people is too narrow.

"The campaign is focused on identifying and resolving institutional barriers faced by aboriginal people and other racial groups in Edmonton, according to a City of Edmonton release."

"Findings show that such black segregation, and to a lesser extent Hispanic segregation, are powerful predictors of the number and rate of foreclosures in the United States — even after removing the effects of a variety of other market conditions such as average creditworthiness, the degree of zoning regulation, the overall rate of subprime lending, or coverage under the Community Reinvestment Act, an act passed in the 1970s to reduce redlining. Minority-dominant neighborhoods continue to be underserved by mainstream financial institutions, while predatory lenders are commonplace in such neighborhoods, the study notes."

"In 1970 Psychology Today published a board game where players were divided into white and black, and had to make economic progress while competing with each other. Based on Monopoly, the idea was to demonstrate how the odds were stacked against black people in society by having different rules for each race in the game."
Whites started out with $1 million, blacks with $10,000 and each race had different opportunity decks. While whites could buy property in any part of the board, blacks were limited to certain areas until they had accumulated at least $100,000 and were outright banned from property in the ‘suburban zone’.
