We show that the apparent evidence of racial discrimination in Army promotion times found by Butler (1976) is a statistical artifact resulting from the failure to adjust for censoring in the data used. A Tobit analysis of the same data indicates that minorities are promoted more rapidly in some specialties and grades, and less rapidly or at the same rate in others.
