These are the 30 most wanted casino crooks in
Nevada. What I find interesting is that of the 30,
17 are Asian or Latino, mostly Asian. If you know
almost half of the most wanted casino felons in
the state are Asian, why, as a casino, would you
continue to hire so many Asian dealers? Look who's
missing from the list, wouldn't you make a point
of hiring more of them instead? Yeah yeah, profiling
and all that. But the truth is, profiling does work,
especially when your bottom line is at stake. Its
like they're going out of their way to hire more people
from a demographic thats proven to be untrustworthy.

Yep, looks like African-American Males and Pacific Islanders are the best people to hire. It also would seem those of an Arab or Indian/Pakistan origin would be good people to hire as well.

As a casino, I'd hire the people you apply for the jobs and past the tests I put in place.

I've owned two businesses and I hired people
who I thought would get along with the customers
and not rip me off. I've been told by casino employees
that so many Asian dealers are hired not because
they get along well with players or even other
dealers, because they don't. Or because they're
more trustworthy, which they aren't. Its because they
come in when you tell them to, work overtime
without complaining, and never call in sick. Hell
of a hiring criteria.

Well, that'd be part of the test.

I wouldn't be choosing the later based on their surname or colour the skin or shape of their features. I'd do it on their references, personality and the sort of thing.

But I'll bow to businessman.

This should be posted in the free-speech zone. Because it's offensive. And I'm not going to get into a discussion about it.

I'd have to agree. Just because there is a trend of a specific race, doesn't mean they are any more or any less likely to commit some crime or fit some specific trait. You guys are committing the ultimate gambler's fallacy. :)

There's really only two things that count when
you have a business where the employee will be
dealing with the public and with YOUR money.
Will my customers like them, and will they rip
me off. Employees who don't like people will
drive your customers away. I stopped playing
mini bac because of the rude Asian dealers
and ever ruder Asian players. I disliked 90%
of the Asian BJ dealers I came into contact
with. I think its hilarious that almost half of
the most wanted casino criminals are Asian,
and only a tiny part of Vegas is Asian, yet
every casino if full of Asian dealers. This is
supposed to be an entertainment venue, the
customer comes first. No we don't, obviously.

I've met rude people of all races. Everyone is equally likely to be an ass. ;)

or fit some specific trait.



You you find most Asian dealers to be friendly
and outgoing, then? What casino is that? Never
been there... I try and be PC, and then reality
always slaps me in the face.

hehe, just staying positive. I can't stand "PC". Just don't get caught in the trap of always being negative. Skews your viewpoint, and maybe that one nice asian dealer will turn out to be an ass when you are rude to him first expecting him to be rude.
