Walmart Store / hiring is being done based on color and not qualifications and experience

1 United States Review updated:

The WalMart Store in Greenville Alabama needs to look into what's going on in their Human Resource Dept. Hiring is being done based on color and not qualifications and experience. The employees being hired are of one race(black), are rude and have no idea of what their doing. People are being charged wrong prices due to these employees not knowing the products their ringing up. The people in the Human Resource Dept are in the practice of hiring friends and the color of their choice! This needs to stop before it's taken any further!

    You guys there is no racism here, obviously this person does not have the skills to work there and is claiming racism. He probably got turned down. Instead of doing the adult thing and trying elsewhere he results to childness(could be why he was not hired) What a loser. He can't prove this is happening.

    race does not mean anything in hiring, it is the qualifications. In regards to brains being smaller in reference to intelligence bigger is not always better, i have met some white folk (i am white as well) and they were dumb as a stick and i have met some geniuses that were different races

    Well then your studies are outdated, they did claim blacks had smaller brains in the 60's when there was much more racism.

    Maybe all of you should go and do some research:
    race and intelligence has been a subject of debate in both popular science and academic research since the inception of intelligence testing in the early 20th century, particularly in the United States. Intelligence quotient (IQ) tests performed in the US have consistently demonstrated a significant degree of variation between different racial groups, with the average score of the African American population being significantly lower—and that of the Asian American population being higher—than that of the White American population.

    At the same time, there is considerable overlap between these group scores, and members of each racial group can be found at all points on the IQ spectrum. Similar findings have been reported for related populations around the world, most notably in Africa, though these are generally considered far less reliable due to the relative paucity of test data and the difficulties inherent in the cross-cultural comparison of intelligence test scores.

    There are no universally accepted definitions of either race or intelligence in academia, and the discussion of their connection involves the results of multiple disciplines, including biology, anthropology, sociology, and psychology. Many factors that could potentially influence the development of intelligence have been advanced as possible causes of the racial IQ gaps. It is generally agreed that both genetics and environmental and/or cultural factors affect individual IQ scores. There is currently no consensus whether genetics play a role in racial IQ gaps, or whether their cause is entirely environmental.

    Critics have questioned the validity of race and IQ. Sternberg et al (2005) argue that race is a social construction with no scientific definition and that the overwhelming portion of the literature have tacitly adopted folk definitions of race. Intelligence is a disputed concept which, they argue, make the relationships to other variables tentative.

    There are observed differences in average test score achievement between racial groups, which vary depending on the populations studied and the type of tests used. Rushton and Jensen write that in the United States, self-identified blacks and whites have been the subjects of the greatest number of studies. They state that the black-white IQ difference is about 15 to 18 points or 1 to 1.1 standard deviations. 15% to 20% of the black IQ distribution exceeds the white median IQ, so many blacks obtain scores above the white average. The black-white IQ difference is largest on those tests that best represent the general intelligence factor
