Salaries of College-Educated Women

According to Time Magazine, college-educated white women apparently earn much less on average than comparable black and Asian women.

$43,656 Average salary of college-educated Asian-American women in 2003

$41,066 Average salary of college-educated black American women in 2003

$37,761 Average salary of college-educated white American women in 2003


I'm not really sure why this would be the case. It could be due to different life choices that each sort of woman might be more likely to make due to cultural or social norms. Perhaps this comes from the higher salaries that are found in large cities where black and asian women are more highly represented.
