i agree we dont live in a post racial society. While progress has been made, it seems like in other areas of race we have gone backwards. I personally think that instead of open racism like back in the 40's-70's the racism now is more hidden.

It seems as if Black people are having to go into huge debt to gain degrees, simply to have access to employment opportunities that whites without 4 year degrees have. Blacks need to be over qualified for their jobs!
It also is heartbreaking that recently incarcerated white men are seen as more employable than BM who have no criminal record, even though Black males are heavily victimized by police and the judicial system.
I just can't understand how Black men living under such oppression would be dating and marrying whites at 24%? I can't understand how this group of Blacks were backing Hilary against Obama.
They still love white people no matter how much sh!t whites make them eat.

you do know i am a white male and i do agree with some of your comments, but let me tell you that not all white people get a free pass in life. i have yet to be able to go to college because it is just to expensive where i struggle to support my two bi-racial children both half black/half white. i have debt and i eventually will be working two jobs again. But yes i do agree black people as a whole get shafted more when it comes to these things. i cant understand what it is like to be black, but i have a small idea. when i dated a black lady once about 12 years ago i was driving and bringing her back home and i merged on the highway and then a state trooper got behind me and i looked and he was looking very hard at the passenger seat where my black girlfriend was and he kept on looking and looking, mind you i did no lane change violation, i wasnt speeding, my lights were all in tact, i am a non-smoker and i dont drink. i wasnt swerving my car or doing anything that would make a cop suspicious. well he stopped me got me out of the car and hand cuffed me and never told me why, i spent 4 hours in a jail until this idiot found out that he had the wrong person with a simlilar name. know i now he stopped me because he didnt like the fact i had a black girlfriend. these racist things happen to many white men who date black women. now i know this is not the same as what black people have been going through for many years, but it gave me a small idea of how the black race is targeted. so all i can do is pray for racial harmony and peace.

I pray you realize that certain degrees don't account for much in the 21st century.

There's info out here on the jobs and careers of tomorrow. That's what my husband and I are telling our sons.

I learned this quite a while ago. It's true that black people have to be twice to three times better than a white applicant in order to be considered for employment. The most successful black business women and men are ambitious, aggressive, and don't take crap from anyone.

I suppose if you hook up with a white chick, only one of you suffers disadvantage instead of both of you. Also bringing a white wife to the company's christmas party might make them more likely to promote you as they know you're a loyal house nicca.

Im glad its happening, maybe you college edu-ma-cated negros will start looking into creating jobs and businesses for yourselves, Create fourms that you control, you still have this sharecropper's mentality, dont you see other people immigrate to america and get an education and take it back to their people, set up their businesses, and support themselves, as long as you keep running behind wht-liberals you'll never have nothing. Its called self interest, people are going to put those who look like them first, depend on yourself.

It helps to network and actually be QUALIFIED for a job for starters doesn't it? You sound like someone who's never worked a day in her life. I've worked Saladbar. I have connections as well as the experience and education to be an asset.
All you do is set around and whine over the black dyck that passed you by.

Now pick up your bag of cotton along with those out of wedlock children whose fathers could be anyone and take your coon-shining, moon cricket, ass out of here.

Man, you're an idiot! How many profiles is this for you now? There aren't even any blacks in Laguna Niguel, so what are you bickering over?

The thread is about Black men being over qualified for the job they are doing and all You have a white wife because you are weak and self hating and you want to benefit (via your mate) from the system of white supremacy instead of standing against it.
