    I'm wondering if those upscale restaurants took into consideration the Caribbean and Ebonics accents of their black applicants. I'm guessing in an upscale New York restaurant elocution might be a BIG factor in hiring decisions.
    I'm not reading a 14 page .pdf to argue with you...

    That's assuming that a black college graduate can do, or is even interested in doing the job they were hired to do.

    Black workers, those few who are interested in making it on merit, are caught in an affirmative action trap. It is assumed that they are poor performers who made it through on one or other affirmative action program. It was once said that a black person had to be twice as good as a white person to advance. Unfortunately today a black person not only has to be twice as good as a white person, but has to be good enough and fight hard enough to rise above the affirmative action swamp. And, they have to do this in an environment where the employer isn't at all sure that the black employee won't find a reason to sue them and take a short cut to retirement.

    We should be a Color-Blind Society by now. But some don't ever want to see that happen. There's too much money & votes at stake. For many, racial division is just good for business. No one should be labelled an 'African American','Hispanic American','Asian American', etc. etc...We are all Americans. We have evolved enough to throw away the labels that only divide us. So it's time to do that.

    Why is this drivel posted in the politics forum? I could swear that we have a forum set aside for race baiting. Perhaps the OP is not astute enough to understand why there are so many sections to this board?

    We're still having massive parades celebrating Irish-Americans, magnificent feasts celebrating Italian-Americans and Polish-Americans. And you know what? The culture that those people, and those you mentioned, added to the melting pot which is American culture, is the richer for it. I'm curious why you selected those few groups you did.

    No, it's not that most Americans also include those traditions of their ancestory as part of who they are that causes problems. The problem is there are still bigots among us, who see our multiculturist heritage as a threat.

    Parades and Government Policy are two very different things. Apples & Oranges for sure. There is no longer any need to label Americans 'African American','White American','Hispanic American' and so on and so on. Those labels only serve to permanently divide us. But i guess that's what many want. Racial Division is big money & big politics. Some don't ever want to let it go. And that's just very sad.
