“In 2010, half of Asian Americans 25 years old or older held
bachelor’s degrees, compared with 28 percent of the White population (Bureau of the
Census 2011a).”
Richard T. Schaefer, Racial and Ethnic Groups

“About one in 16 White males can expect to go to a state or
federal prison during his lifetime, yet for Black males this lifetime probability is one out
of three (Bureau of the Census 2010a:Tables 320, 346, 615; Gaines 2005).”

“They assume that
women are on a mommy track, an unofficial career track that firms use for women who
want to divide their attention between work and family. This assumption would be false if
applied to all women. It also implies that corporate men are not interested in maintaining
a balance between work and family. Even competitive, upwardly mobile women are not
always taken seriously in the workplace (Carlson, Kacmar, and Whitten 2006; Heilman
2001; Schwartz and Zimmerman 1992).”
Richard T. Schaefer, Racial and Ethnic Groups

“Like several other Asian immigrant groups, Asian Indians (or East Indians) are recent
immigrants. Only 17,000 total came from 1820 to 1965, with the majority of those arriving before 1917. These pioneers were subjected to some of the same anti-Asian measures
that restricted Chinese immigration. For example, the Supreme Court (1923) ruled that
an Asian Indian could not become a naturalized citizen because they were not White
and therefore were excluded under the 1917 law that applied to all natives of Asia. This
prohibition continued until 1946.”
Richard T. Schaefer, Racial and Ethnic Groups

“My father works in a factory, and has done so for the past 14 years. All of their
workers have to wear the same outfits—navy blue coveralls, brown steel toe
boots—and they have to produce so much work each night. The company is telling
them how to look, how to work, and sometimes how to think. Dad comes home
each morning and he is still running like that machine. Before he began this job, he
was much livelier. I never get to see the Dad that I had before age six. His constantly having to work as a part of a machine has stripped him of his personality
and happiness. In another instance at the factory, he was injured on the job by a
crane, and was instantly replaced by someone else on the line because the job could
be done by “anyone.”
Daniel P. Modaff, Organizational Communication: Foundations, Challenges, and Misunderstandings
