AB - In this paper we make an Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition in order to estimate the wage gap between white
people and afroamerican people in Cali using data from the survey of employment and quality of life.
The estimation is weighted by the number of individuals that recognize themselves as afroamerican as a
mesure of statistical correction given the deaggregation of the data. Furthermore, we include fixed effects
by “comuna” conglomerates in the labor participation equation to recognize the rol of location in the
wage gap. Also, we consider different covariables in the explain of the labor participation equation for the
afroamerican in order to control by migration and discrimination. We found that, no controling with the
fixed effects, the wage gap by race in Cali is understimated, conclusion that supports those results found
by Black et al. (2013). On the other hand, when we include variables that recognize the migrations and
perceved discrimination, the wage gap is 42 %, where the explained part is 9% and the unexplained is
33%
