Collection of research on various topics

25 Mar 2019 10:05 - 25 Mar 2019 12:41 #336201 by OB1Shinobi
I have built up a fairly sizable collection of research papers and articles on social issues in the last year or so. Much of it has been specific to race and racism, then to a lesser degree, gender differences and transgenderism. These are topics where i have often engaged with contentious people, and have found it useful to keep up with various bits of quality sources which ive used to justify my positions.

The collection is growing beyond what is handy to keep in my “notes” on my phone, and id like to have a backup in case something happens and i lose the info. I know this doesnt really belong in “offline activities- feel free to move it wherever seems most appropriate. Id prefer it werent in the “Journals” forum because 1) i want people to participate and 2) id like us to be able to find it even when not logged in.

While my actual opinions on topics are consistent, they are also nuanced and the specific positions that i take tend to move around depending on who im talking to; i usually challenge people who are clearly on one side or another. Some examples: BLM types are mostly wrong about police inappropriately shooting black people, but Ben Shapiro and his followers are mostly wrong about racism not being “a thing” anymore. White supremacists are mostly wrong about “the failure of multi-culturalism” but “progressive” leftists are mostly wrong in thier beliefs that societies can handle unliimited and unscrutinized immigration.

Whatever your opinions on whatever topics, I INVITE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS!
WHATEVER topics youre interested in, if you have quality research (especially peer reviewed studies or articles that are backed by peer review studies, or analysis from established experts in a field) and youd like to include them into the collective, please do. I have learned to let go of proving that im already right in favor of being willing to update my views based on evidence. Good research is good research and it doesnt matter to me what “side” of any issue it supports. Throw it in the pot!

Again, theres no topic limits. All topics are welcome.

I include the titles of the studies, links to them, and in many cases a summary of their conclusions. These links are all live at the time of this posting but that doesnt mean they always will be. If the link is dead when you click it, you should be able to find the content by searcning the title. Some search engines work better than others, for this. Lines in (parenthesis) are my synopsis of what the study concludes. I recall that there are limits to how many links we can include in a single post - think we’re about to find out what those limits are and i really hope this doesnt cause any problems.

Education Trust: FUNDING GAPS 2018
An Analysis of School Funding Equity Across the U.S. and Within Each State
(Essentially says schools in minority districts recieve less funding)

However, that study is somewhat contradicted by the following research which indicates that in some important instances, schools tend to spend more on minority students than on white students.

Do school districts spend less money on poor and minority students?

IZA Institute of Labor Economics August 2016
IZA DP No. 10165: Teacher Expectations Matter

I got six links in the first one but this one is telling me that six is too much.... this will be fun, lol

Discriminatory rates in banking and auto insurance

The Foreclosure Crisis and Racial Disparities in Access to Mortgage Credit

Once i started looking into this i found so many studies that i stopped collecting them. Only found one so far which challenges the general conclusions:
Rethinking the Role of Racial Segregation in the American Foreclosure Crisis

Also on the issue of bank discrimination, look up “redlining and reverse redlining” AND web search the words “discriminatory lending” along with ANY of the following bank names; JPMorgan and Chase, M&T bank, Citigroup(which is also Citibank), PNC, Wells Fargo, Evans bank, US Bank, BankCorp, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, TD Bank, Capital One, HSBC.

ProPublica and Consumer Reports co-published a study in 2017:
Minority Neighborhoods Pay Higher Car Insurance Premiums Than White Areas With the Same Risk

2015 study by Consumer Federation of America:
High Price of Mandatory Auto Insurance in Predominantly African American Communities

How We (ProPublica) Examined Racial Discrimination in Auto Insurance Prices

Discrimination in housing, false convictions, promotions in the medical field

US Department of Housing and Urban Development did a study called:
(The full report is kind of a pain in the ass but here it is)
A summary is here:

National Registry of Exonerations
(Minorites (especially blacks) are several times more likely to be falsely convicted on serious charges than whites and significantly more likely to be convicted due to deliberate misconduct by the state)

This almost doesnt belong here but its here anyway
Cashing checks, napping, more activities leading to police calls on black people in 2018
