Pass or Prepared?
on Dummy Table on Affirmative Action

This sample construction of a dummy table was started in response to question #4 of the Pass or Prepared? on Rorty 's Pragmatism.

On April 12, Donna Woods responded to the suggestion to create a dummy table:

Well, this is what I have come up with:
My two variables (Nominal) are, Blacks needing training, and poor whites excluded. I then looked for mathematical measurements, such as "cost of promoting potential, and the cost of righting wrongs."

I hope that I have the beginnings of a table.

How would you answer Donna? How would you go about constructing this table?
