Immigrant Study Shows Being Paler Pays A Bonus

Washington — When it comes to immigrants, apparently you can't be too tall
or too white.

Vanderbilt University economist Joni Hersch found that legal immigrants to
the United States who had darker complexions or were shorter earned less money than their fair-skinned or taller counterparts with similar jobs, training and backgrounds. Even swarthy whites from abroad earned less than those with lighter skin.

Immigrants with the lightest complexions earned, on average, about 8 to 15
percent more than those with the darkest skin tone after controlling for race
and country of origin as well as for other factors related to earnings,
including occupation, education, language skills, work history, type of visa and whether they were married to a U.S. citizen.

In fact, Hersch estimated that the negative impact of skin tone on earnings
was equal to the benefit of education, with a particularly dark complexion
virtually wiping out the advantage of education on earnings.

Taller immigrants also earned more, she found, with every extra inch worth
about 1 percent in earnings.

Hersch based her results on 2,084 men and women who participated in
face-to-face interviews for the federally funded 2003 New Immigrant Survey. All of the respondents had been admitted to lawful permanent resident status during the seven-month period, May to November 2003. As part of the survey, interviewers also rated the skin tone of each individual on an 11-point scale ranging from zero to 10, with 10 representing the darkest possible skin color and zero the absence of color, or albinism.

That follows suit. We have a clean border with Canada, but they want a fence between us and Mexico.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
