Dr. Algernon Austin, a co-research of the “Stick Shift:  Autonomous Vehicles, Driving Jobs, and the Future of Work” report, writes how black men would be adversely affected by autonomous vehicles.

“Driving occupations are for the most part dominated by men. The African-American overrepresentation in driving occupations is mainly due to a strong overrepresentation of Black men. Black women have a strong presence as bus drivers however, and they too are overrepresented in driving occupations relative to women.”
