So, I like many across the globe, am feeling the effects of the shitty economy and the unemployment that stems from it. It's not that I'm a lazy bum, I've been working full time since 17, and only lost my last job as a result of them going out of business (job shipped out to India for cheaper labour). I was among the resumes selected for a housekeeping job at the local hospital (as unglamorous as it is, payed like a champ, full time, full benefits.) There I sat awaiting my interview, along with 9 other hopefuls, and I noticed 2 things. A) Only two of us were what I would call dressed up for the interview and B) Only two of us were white. Now the other white guy wasn't dressed up either (who honestly thinks jeans are interview appropriate), the other was an Asian.. whom was pretty hot but that's besides the point. Aced the interview, or so I thought, turns out one of the ethnic minorities got the job, despite what I hear, of him having no real prior work experience or qualifications, and showing up in a hoodie. Turns out the staff wasn't ethnically diverse enough so a couple of friends in there tell me. Now, that's a load of shit, and pisses me off, but I didn't go on a racist tirade, however, I was discussing this with some friends and the subject of race came up, and I simply mention that despite being a lower percentile of the population, blacks and hispanics make up a substantial portion of prison populations, not intended to be bigoted, and not something that was a fabricated opinion with no statistical backing. However, instant backlash from my friends, and I'm now blacklisted as a closet racist... so your opinions on affirmative action and political correctness?
