ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comment on the paper by Jerry M. Newman which addresses important issues related to operational definition of racial discrimination in employment. He contends that Newman examined the pattern of company responses to the candidate employees and asked whether the applicants were treated similarly or differently. As noted by the author, Newman's occurrences of racial discrimination are some differences due to racial treatment and some due to error. The author believes that Newman's operational definition is based on the implicit assumption that if two equivalent white males were used in the study, every company would respond identically to each pair.
