As black folks we are already at a disadvantage when it comes to the corporate world world simply by the color of our skin. But one thing we can control is out appearance.

I have been to many businesses, fast food, retail etc and when I look at the workers or cashier and you see giant tattoos on people neck and faces, and all up and down their arms, do these young black kids not know by now alot of corporate America will disqualify them from a job simply because of that. Even though its outward appearance, much of corporate America sees tattoo on your face or neck as: ghetto, criminal, or just plain retarded.

This up and coming generation of blacks growing up in this hip hop culture is guaranteeing themselves a life of misery and poverty when they keep getting turned down for jobs over basic stuff like facial tattoos, super ghetto names, and not able to speak basic English without forcing it.

Yes, it is becoming quite redundant to say the least in regards to tattoos on people's bodies regardless of their race in the USA.
