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.

kingjaffejoffer:

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.

I feel like the race/ethnicity question is hard on job apps because like you said, sometimes they hold it against you but sometimes, you might be what they need to fill that quota. Do you feel as if your race/ethnicity is the biggest "negative" when you're applying for jobs?

kingjaffejoffer:

Like I said before. If I were forced to choose which situation was more likely.

I think someone letting pre-conceived notions about Black people, or simply being more comfortable with someone of their own race is much more likely than me running into someone who needs to fill a quota. 

And based on that, I choose not to disclose my race. I want them to be shocked when I show up for the interview. GOTCHA BITCH

black kids straight up getting killed for being black and white people have the gall to be offended over jokes about them not being able to handle spice and call it “”“racism”“”

Instead of casting Zoe “Colorblind” Saldana to play Nina Simone, they should cast the amazing Adepero Oduye.

  • Adepero Oduye looks EXACTLY like Nina Simone. 
  • She’s an incredible actress (Pls watch Pariah and 12 Years a Slave). 

It’s frustrating that not even a dark skinned black woman can be casted for the role of a dark skinned dark skinned black woman.

Hollywhite strikes again.

Facebook and the world at large I am sharing this video to expose the excessive force by a Hammond Indiana police officer to my 17 year old niece Jada Glasper…she weighs less than 100 lbs soak and wet she was arrested, choked and punched in the face by a police officer accusing her of Jay walking
When she refused the ticket due to her stating to the officer that she hadnt jaywalked…things escalated beyond the scope of the Law…
As a concerned aunt and God Mother to my niece I am beyond furious and angry that our youth continues to be subject of discriminating actions by individuals and unregulated law enforcement officers that feel they can harm versus protect every day citizens especially a young 3.8 GPA.. honors student who is just starting to come into her young adulthood.
Actions such as these leave me to feel extreme disgust for police officers that continue to display outright prejudices against our African American people.
As a media personality and advocate for rights of all people…This will be the first of many public actions and civil rights awareness to combat the injustices to my niece and the many millions of youth such as Trayvon Martin & Mike Brown that’s has fallen victim to racial injustices.
I am so blessed to say that Jada is alive and can speak for herself and bear witness to this unlawful treatment that occurred September 3 2014.
I am summoning my extended relationships in friendships, family and social circles to share this posting and take action and speak up to put a end to this foolishness. Sincerely…Sabrina Sonny Jones-Smith advocate, producer and media personality of LouddMouth Radio..
