Bull schitt

I drove a benz to work every day.

I dined out during at International Square downtown D.C. Sometimes I brought sushi to the office for lunch.

I wore expensive clothes

I used expensive monte blounts to sign any documents.

When running with the big dogs, AA's must be a big dog.

If whitey ride ya back, it's because ya let them and nobody rides the big dog.

My first job after college, a ww told me the same schitt. "Don't tell anybody you're a college graduate because, you're the only college graduate in the office besides the director".

Oh hell naw. Hell to the naw. She told the wrong brother.

WHEN I GOT BACK TO THE OFFICE I GOT LOUD AND COUNTRY AS SCHITT. YEARS LATER, THAT ENTIRE OPERATION WAS "ONE" OF MANY UNDER MY MANAGEMENT.

uh huh.

I have been all over America in a professional capacity and can make this statement anywhere

NOBODY CAN RIDE YA BACK UNLESS YA LET THEM.

AA catch hell on the jobs because they allow it and when we get off from work it's "you can't tell me nuthin, you ain't my boss". Who's the boss? A white person. Hence, the only that can tell AA anything is a white person.

This is why AA's can not tell another AA anything.

That's because it is ya hometown.

Before I went to college, I went to another city. A friend from that city went to apply for a job and what the hell I'll go too.

They told homeboy no and told me to come to work monday.

Sometimes one must leave home

Do you have a ball and chain around ya leg keeping ya there? Ya gotta eat and sometimes ya gotta leave the comforts of friends and family. Many AA's can't go back home because, home can't accept their success. Back home they remember when.

We remember when ya got beat
we remember when ya failed
We remember when.....

You created this thread telling AA's how to conduct themselves on the job "based solely" on your experience in your southern town. Your experience is yours and do not apply to everyone.

Institutional rscism is a bytch and that is what you are describing.

So what are "people" around there going to do about it? Are they going along with instktutionalized racism or band together and file a "class action" discrimination lawsuit.

Keep them hicks in court long enough and their pockets will scream for mercy

don't tell me about blk and white bosses. The blk bosses were picked for two reasons.

1. To fill the affirmative action quota
2. To silence them.

Union stewards are promoted to management to silence them and to keep them from making waves.

Don't tell me about blk and white bosses in a southern town. A blk boss can not discipline a white employee without the approval of a white boss.

You don't know the system.

I know what you are expressing.

I have gone to southern establishments and the hicks stare in disaproval in hopes that I would feel uncomfortable and guilt tripped enough to leave. That's when I get real comfortable and show out. The madder they get the better I feel

Absolutely right. Dressing too flashy in some areas is like jumping naked into a river full of sharks after smearing your skin with shark bait.

In NY there was this woman, who had been repeatedly warned to tone down her attire for safety's sake but to no avail. Took an elevator down to the subway one night and suddenly the other passenger, a male, calmly ordered her to remove her expensive- looking ring and give give it to him.

Well, the ring fit tightly and after making what appeared to be strenuous attempts she finally proclaimed that she just couldn't take it off

Whereupn the gent calmly informed her that if she did not remove the expensive-looking ring then he would simply amputate her finger. That ring came off in less than half a second. But all that could have been avoided simply by toning down her display a bit. Apparently common sense isn't as common as it's made out to be.
