Interesting that you mention job applicants

I have hired two Black employees in the past couple of years. They were both exceptionally qualified for the job, and have fit in well with the rest of the team. One of them is worth his weight in gold - a real dream employee. A few things they had in common is that they both arrived for their interview on time, well-dressed with neat haircuts, they both spoke English (successfully conjugating the verb "to be") and neither had a criminal record. If you dress like a slob, can't speak proper English, can't communicate through written correspondence, style your hair like Medusa, and pop up when I do a criminal records check, I can't use you. Soner or later we are going to realize that it's not about color, it's about quality.
