White man in the photo is the 'third hero' that night in 1968

Most people don't know Norman. Pictured below, Norman is perhaps "the third hero of that night in 1968," writes Italian writer Riccardo Gazzaniga. With permission from Gazzaniga and Griot Magazine, SF Globe reprints Gazzaniga's essay on Norman here: Sometimes photographs deceive. Take this one, for example. I always saw the photo as a powerful image of two barefoot black men, with their heads bowed, their black-gloved fists in the air while the US National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” played.

The causes for these disparities are often described as complex, but a new experiment shows they may actually be the sad, disturbingly simple result of racial bias. As described in the RAND Journal of Economics, a group of researchers from Yale and Harvard went to eBay and put up offerings of baseball cards being shown by dark-skinned/African-American hands. They then showed the same cards being held by a light-skinned/Caucasian hand.

Cards held by African-American sellers sold for approximately 20% ($0.90) less than cards held by Caucasian sellers, they found. Ayres/Banaji/Jolls via RAND They note these findings jibe with past experiments done on purchasing automobiles; car price disparities for African-American versus Caucasian buyers were reduced when negotiations were initially conducted online. White Americans long for the 1950s, when they didn’t face so much discrimination. President-elect Barack Obama is welcomed by President George W.

Scott Applewhite/AP) Yes, you read that headline correctly. In a new poll released by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) on Tuesday, a whopping 43 percent of Americans told researchers that discrimination against whites has become as large a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minority groups. The two would appear to be related.
