Why letting employers access previously private criminal records might be good for black men looking for work:

The existing empirical evidence suggests that criminal background checks may benefit African American male job applicants as a whole, by permitting employers to sort among ex-cons and those lacking criminal records. In the absence of accurate criminal history information, employers concerned about keeping ex-offenders out of their workplace appear to hire too few African American males - penalizing African American males without criminal records and hiring ex-cons who are members of groups with low offending rates.
