WASHINGTON, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Racial discrimination exists in ride-sharing service provided by companies like Uber and Lyft in the United States, as it is more difficult for black people to get a ride and more likely for them to have a trip canceled, according to a study by U.S. researchers.

The discovery made by scholars at the MIT, Stanford and the University of Washington revealed that black passengers in the city of Seattle had to wait as much as 35 percent longer to get a ride confirmed through Uber app than white passengers.

In Boston, black male passengers to hail rides were three times as possible to have their trips canceled by Uber drivers than white male passengers, said the study released on Monday by the National Bureau of Economic Research.

Sending passengers to hail nearly 1,500 rides in the two cities, the researchers also found that male passengers using black-sounding names who requested Uber rides in low-density areas were more than three times likely to get a refusal by drivers than male riders using white-sounding names.

The study showed that black riders waited a shorter time if they chose Lyft, Uber's close competitor, although the discrimination was still detectable.

But it may be just due to Lyft's different systematic design which allows drivers to see a rider's name and photo before accepting a request, the study added. Prejudiced drivers can rule out black riders before initiating the accepting-and-canceling process.

"There is no way to know if an individual decision by a driver was discriminatory," a co-author of the study Stephen Zoepf told the Washington Post. "It's really only in the aggregate that you can see the patterns."

Both Uber and Lyft claim they have strong nondiscrimination guidelines for their drivers.

The explosive price increases in China's housing market in the past year have made people less interested in predicting when the bubble will burst Matt Ryan Shirt , and begin to accept and mock the unbelievably high prices.

"I will want to divorce you only when the stocks I've bought recoup," he said.

Upon hearing this, she felt warmth Devonta Freeman Shirt , knowing they would be together for all time.

"I will marry you once the house prices fall," he said.

That broke her heart. She knew he was determined to break up.

Bittersweet jokes like this have flooded Chinese cyberspace and people's social media accounts since housing prices in Chinese cities skyrocketed - once again - in the past year.

National Bureau of Statistics figures show that housing prices in most cities around the country continued to increase in August, with some cities surging by more than 40 percent over the last year. A few residential communities have even seen their prices double as panicked home buyers scramble to the market for fear their chance to buy is now or never. This round of price increase apparently beat most people's expectations. A much anticipated price fall seems like a myth.

People have stopped discussing how the government should rein in unchained prices or predicting when the bubble will burst, but instead begun to accept the fact that the prices have risen to levels beyond most people's reach. Even if the increase will slow or reverse a bit Calvin Ridley Shirt , as long as the market doesn't crumble, prices are still at unreasonable levels.

Some simple math will show that one person earning an average per capita income in Shenzhen, South China's Guangdong Province, will have to work 50 years without spending a penny in order to buy an average-sized apartment in the city.

A Beijinger surnamed Zhang sold his courtyard house near the Drum Tower 30 years ago and left for good to the US. He worked hard for his American Dream to learn English and deliver food. After being robbed seven times Julio Jones Shirt , he managed to make $1 million, and with the money he came back to China for retirement, only to find the house he once sold now costs 80 million yuan ($12 million). Versions of this joke are popular because many people find the scenario easy to believe.

Bay or cry

As economists worry the disproportionate price surge in property will drain financing for the country's development, ordinary people are feeling the sting of high prices in their daily life.

Potential housing purchasers Ito Smith Jersey , mostly the urban middle class, are hit the hardest, not only because of the fast shrinking affordability of housing, but also Deadrin Senat Jersey , as some observers say, because of a reemerging class struggle, based on whether one owns a property or not, a reinforcement of Karl Marx's classical theory about the haves and have-nots.

Housing in China is closely related to resources Isaiah Oliver Jersey , and property is bound together with the social welfare system. Owning a property is necessary for one to enjoy local social services. "School district houses" are particularly sought after as they provide access to a city's best schools without the need for skullduggery. Beijing's school district houses, mostly in Xicheng and northwestern Haidian districts, could be more than twice the city's average housing prices. Only better off families can possibly afford such homes and enjoy the best education.

As another realistic joke goes, in the past only wealthy people sent their kids to study overseas Austin Hooper Jersey , but now only the poor do.

Uneven access to education passes down through generations and consolidates the established social class. This obstructs inter-class flow and society becomes rigid. The chance for lower-class social groups to rise in the social hierarchy becomes slimmer.

The only people left with a better job than real estate agents are emigration agents, some say.
