Hey Perv, I'm applying for jobs and I'm genuinely concerned about not getting it cuz of my ethnicity on my app. You think it's better to just leave that box blank? I would say I'm yt but, I'm also concerned that's grounds for firing me later on.
Leave it blank.
I was job hunting for a really long time, and about halfway through I made the decision to not disclose my race or gender because I felt like it was being held against me. I don’t have any proof, but thats just how I felt.
I just asked myself the question, “what’s more likely?… someone hiring me because they want a Black guy around. Or someone not hiring me because they hold certain feelings about Black people?”……… obviously the answer was the latter.
I don’t know what your name is, but if it sounds Black try to shorten it to where its ambiguous. If your name is Jayquan… just put Jay.
Yeah its racist but this is America and if you have to manipulate an unfair system to get ahead then do it.
