Wallet Test Experiment Reveals That Whites Are More Honest Than Blacks

A group of people who operate the WalletTest.com website decided to conduct a test of people's honesty by staging wallet drops at a shopping mall in Belleville, IL. They dropped 100 different wallets in front of 100 different hidden cameras. Each wallet contained $2.10 in real money, a fake $50.00 gift certificate, some miscellaneous items and a clearly written ID card identifying the lost wallet's rightful owner. They were curious as to how honest people would be and wanted to see how different groups would compare to each other.

And here were some of their findings:

(1). 74% of all participants were honest, returning the wallets.

(2). Females proved more honest than males.

(3). Older people tended to be more honest than middle-aged people, who in turn were significantly more honest than young people.

They also decided to test on the basis of race. Note that only two races were considered; white and black. If the race was not immediately obvious, they would look at the video after the fact and have three different adults evaluate it. Each of them was asked (to the best of their ability) to identify the race, sex and approximate age of the "wallet pickers". If two out of three agreed on a person's race - then that became the person's "official" race.

While this is not specified, they most likely classified Hispanics as whites in this test. This is also a common tactic employed by agencies which tabulate and report crimes. However, counting Hispanics as whites can lead to artificially-inflated percentages of white misbehavior, since Hispanics tend to be more crime-prone than whites, as outlined in Jared Taylor's research report entitled "Hispanics: A Statistical Portrait".

For some reason, Asians are not addressed at all in this test. Now here is the racial breakdown of test subjects. Note how the testers issue disclaimers throughouts to cover their asses and reassure people that there is no "hidden" agenda. I'm sure they don't actually have any "hidden" agenda, but it's pathetic that they think they need to reassure people in advance that they're not "racist".


Results of the "WalletTest.com" Experiment:

100 wallets were dropped in front of hidden cameras to see who would return the wallets and who would steal them...

Note: It was not the intention of this experiment to make any particular group look bad, reinforce stereotypes nor to further a hidden agenda of any kind. The actions of a few members in a group should not, of course, be used to judge the whole group.

Racially Specific Test Results:

Of the 100 people tested -
77 were white and
23 were black:

White People:

Of the 77 white people tested:
79% (61) were honest and returned the wallets.
21% (16) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Black People:

Of the 23 black people tested:
57% (13) were honest and returned the wallets.
43% (10) were dishonest and kept the wallets.








Comparing both Race and Gender at the same time:

Of the 37 "White Females" tested:
95% (35) were honest and returned the wallets.
5% (2) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 14 "Black Females" tested:
64% (9) were honest and returned the wallets.
36% (5) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 40 "White Males" tested:
65% (26) were honest and returned the wallets.
35% (14) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 9 "Black Males" tested:
44% (4) were honest and returned the wallets.
56% (5) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Note: It was not the intention of this experiment to make any particular group look bad, reinforce stereotypes nor to further a hidden agenda of any kind. The actions of a few members in a group should not, of course, be used to judge the whole group.

Comparing both Race and Age at the same time:

Of the 24 "Young White People" tested:
62% (15) were honest and returned the wallets.
38% (9) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 10 "Young Black People" tested:
40% (4) were honest and returned the wallets.
60% (6) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 30 "Middle-Aged White People" tested:
83% (25) were honest and returned the wallets.
17% (5) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 12 "Middle-Aged Black People" tested:
75% (9) were honest and returned the wallets.
25% (3) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

Of the 23 "Old White People" tested:
91% (21) were honest and returned the wallets.
9% (2) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

(NOTE: "Old Black People" could not be reliably tested because there was only one person who was both "Black" and "Old". Just one person is, of course, way too small of a sampling for a meaningful evaluation. The one "Old Black" who was tested was dishonest and kept the wallet.)

This should be no surprise. This merely reflects the same trend throughout the greater society. Blacks have consistently shown that they are more prone to commit crimes than other races (see Jared Taylor's other research report entitled The Color Of Crime). They occupy a disproportionately high percentage of prison space. They have a much higher percentage of illegitimate births than other races.

You've also watched how people react to natural disasters. During the Grand Forks, ND flood in 1997, the mostly-white population responded in an orderly, peaceful fashion. In contrast, after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans blacks embarked upon a shoplifting frenzy, picking many stores as clean as a vulture picks a wildebeest carcass on the Serengeti. And they didn't limit themselves to perishables, which might have been understandable. They stole athletic T's and plasma TVs. How do you use a plasma TV when there is NO electricity?

But Jesse and Al blame it all on "racism".
