Abstract

The recent study by Jerry M. Newman addresses an important issue and uses a most creative experimental paradigm,(1) but close inspection of the methodology, results, and conclusions casts grave doubts on the validity of the study. The most serious prob- lem lies in Newman's operational defini- tion of racial discrimination.
