I decided to give Eugene Kane a little help

January 9th, 2009

In his opinion piece in yesterday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, cialis sales try columnist Eugene Kane wrote:

One of Milwaukee’s most daunting problems is the underutilization of black men with criminal records in the work force.

I think we can make that sentence even more accurate with a quick edit:

One of Milwaukee’s most daunting problems is the prevalence of black men with criminal records.

    I also found this sentence interesting “a 2003 study found that whites with criminal records were called back for possible jobs more often than African-Americans with no criminal record.”

    Clearly prevalence of white men with criminal records is not not as much a daunting problem as the subtle and thinly veiled racism in this country.

    I guess the next question would be, what were the respective crimes that each group was convicted of? Were the crimes violent, drug related, etc. Would this not have bearing?
