Do you really think describing librarian's work as "tedious" will attract young students to the profession? It's clear you are not a librarian. I think it more realistic to use terms like interesting, challenging, fulfulling, a profession with a variety of tasks everyday, a service profession, a profession where your life's experiences are used with each customer, everyday. These better represent librarianship. Librians work in library settings on college and university campuses, schools in the local community, in corporations, hospitals, law firms, museums, government agencies and other work places. Our duties are varied and extensive, from library administrations to library reference, cataloging to children's and young adult services, programs and services and research, from technical services to library technology. We are the original search engine. Librarianship is a very rewarding profession. There are scholarships available on the local, state levels as well as through the American Library Association. Jobs can be found across the country or in foreign countries. Libraries are valued essentials to every community.

Hopefully anywhere far away from the likes of you. I met plenty of angry blacks in the mandatory black studies courses in college; they were an embarassment to the professors.

Whats so bad about being like whitey? We go to school, get a good education, for the most part we put ourselves in a position to get better paying jobs, live decent lifestyles that don't infringe on the rights of others, pay taxes, maybe even get a refund once in a while, raise our kids to respect others,(of course that entails setting a good example), and every once in a while take a vacation and enjoy life. Sure sounds a lot better than complaining about the color of my skin all the time.

Because this is 2012 and being racist like you are is in the past!! Please stop bringing down my generation with your ingnorance!

we are not white we are black,why should we worship you? I bow down and worship no man especially a man of another race.I don't need to be like you to do these things,whites are this arrogant.You really think your gods among earth, don't you? Dose your race have no shame no modesty? Your race lives a blind privileged life on the blood of others, that's why i complain im sick of the injustice.Im **** of whites bragging about how good they got it when they never deserve it,you didn't work for what you got, you took it.everything down to the nation you live on,the history you worship off the blood of others.Whites have made the whole world about them and how great you are leaving out the darker part,like how you came to get there.
whites are a self worshiping obsessed race
So sad you are so racist and self hating because you refuse to better yourself you have to put down another ethnicity to make yourself feel better. Its sad you become and act like that which you claim to hate.

Feel free to separate from the white man and return to the West African tribal homeland of your choice. Perhaps there someone would find your racist ramblings more interesting; here, they are embarassingly predictable, shrill, and thoroughly annoying.

Well, we could go on about how the anglo saxon race has through the centuries inflicted itself in every major continent on the globe and to be honest we still do. We need only to look at the middle east. Yes, we have done some very bad things in the past, just ask any native American, or Japanese for that matter when we confined them to housing camps during WW2 and stole their properties in the meantime. There are a lot of examples to go around how the white race has subjugated others. But you know what? in almost every case, those minorities came back to live and thrive in this country, Jews, Koreans, Cubans, Hispanics, you name it, they try and endeavor to live free and experience what this country offers. Now the other side of the coin. South Africa wanted to divest itself of white rule and they got what they want. Now look whats happened, can't blame whitey for that. That island in the Caribbean, they divested themselves from whitey, their having a marvelous time.
Sorry, playing the blame game will not get blacks anywhere in this country, never has, never will. The bottom line here is, and was addressed by My Friedman, president of PVVC, that blacks account for a very low percentage of the student population at PVVC, much lower than the should be according to the demographic in this area. If blacks think for a second their gonna earn a good job just because they are black think again. Of course this idea assumes one has work ethic at all which is another topic altogether.

Its the system that makes it like this the white system not just us you always make it seem like its us but its the system you enforce world wide that effects us because we don't befit from it. In fact the only ones that really do are whites,with there"we earn everything we have " ****.That's the biggest lie on the earth. To try to justify a world they took and are privileged from on other races blood.
you earn nothing you created out of manipulation you have very little to be proud of.You are just a thief and a liar nothing else,on top of that your arrogant as if you have a right to be.
whites truly are evil.
Two things, one you need to look in the mirror when you say that and 2, your talking about yourself again, your frustrations as an underachiever are characterised by your ranting and pointless arguments that only betray an excuse to believe in poor decision making. Sorry, you fail cause you want to fail, its all you know, and blaming others be they white or green is just so much easier than looking at yourself. Ain't it?

wrong you say this become im attacking your "iv earned everything i have" mentality and discrediting and questing if you really earned it or not after all.Claiming im jellos of you, because some personal failure.This is a common narcissistic tactic used when some one is attacking your pride and ego.You get where you are out of privileged very little of it is actual earned "hard work" that whites use to justify their inherited positions.Im not attacking you because your "successful" im doing it because your self righteous arrogant ego.The only way you feel relevant in society is if you are on top of some high social class hierarchy.Your character shows me you are spoiled and take everything you have for granted. You don't even respect what you have and look down on others for not being inhered with what you where born into.You parade around with a false sense of pride and importance,you are just a shell,the only think you have is a feeling of self importance.You are consumed with the need to be the big man on top even if it means having no one around you,your response to this is they are "jealous of you". Far from it,you lack any understanding for anyone who actually has to work hard to get what they want, because you are spoon feed your whole life,and it shows.You think im some bum who wants some "entitlement",no i want equality and i want b@sterds like you, to be put in your place & knocked down a few pegs.
If it weren't so sad it would be almost funny, like a guy said some years ago, "there you go again", so outraged about your own faults and limitations you read yourself into all your hateful comments. Our do you really understand what I'm conveying here? Your ranting to yourself, not me, reread what you've posted, its not even rational, trying to describe someone whom you don't even know, how lucid is that?

Na, never been accused of being narcissistic, not even a Type A, self absorbed? water just runs off me, just like comments made by idiots. I spend most of my time helping others both black and white, and get paid for it to boot. You know how? I went to school. Didn't study much though, I hate to study, I'd rather spend my time posting to people who are intent on blaming others for their failed lives. Great entertainment.

Suffer what, how have you suffered? Where you a freed slave so you must be what over a hundred years old then?! The only race problem we have is with old people preaching their prejudice, like yourself, to their children and we the children are SICK OF IT! You old people couldn't get it together to secure our future so we are doing it for ourselves, those of us of every amount of pigmentation, together. Keep your prejudices to yourself we the next generation are beyond that.

By your own admission then, you are a racist. Born and bred. Sad part is your parents made you that way, a hateful, ignorant, racist. Your own worst enemy. The rest or us, all other minorities included, will just keep on gettin up and achieving the goals we wish for ourselves and morons like yourself will be left out in the cold preaching hate and violence, all the while living in squalor and always blaming someone else. Your a sad sad specimen, and at 22 you have already lost the game due to your hate and refusal take responsibility for yourself. Your parents should be ashamed of themselves.

You bring only ignorance obviously...when did I ever mention my ethnicity? The only thing you bring into the open is your ignorance and racism. Your just sad. My grandparents and parents marched with MLK and worked for equality, what good has your family done because there is more to me then the amount of pigmentation in my skin. How about you? Is there more to you then that? Do you still think I'm caucasion or have you figured it out yet?
