U.S. Elite University Economics Departments: Still Racist In 21st Century?

The Ultra-Rich White Folks who still control the 30 top-ranking universities in the United States often claim that they're opposed to institutional racism in the 21st-century.

Yet according to the article, titled "Almost No Black Economists at the Nation's Highest-Ranked Universities," that was posted on The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education website in 2006, only 15 of the 935 economics department faculty members at the 30 highest-ranked universities in the United States are black; and these 15 black economists only "make up 1.6 percent of all the total faculty in the economics departments" of these 30 elite U.S. universities.
