Dr. Rockeymoore writes in a Root.com opinion piece that African Americans have a lot to lose if autonomous vehicles start to replace those who make their livings in the driving profession.

With 4.23 percent of black workers employed in driving jobs, compared with 2.85 percent of all workers in these jobs, blacks rely on driving jobs more than any other racial or ethnic group and would lose a greater-than-average share of jobs under conditions of rapid automation.
