Move where?
Into a White racist neighborhood where there are people like you, Babs, Glitter, Spook and Hugh 3 that hate me? I'm better off around my home girls and folks I know. There are many good people living at Windsor Terrace. Besides I still need Section 8 help so my options are limited if I like to be around people that look like me.
Fight the good fight, L. I hope that you are on an upward pathway and will one day no longer need Section 8. I also hope that you are able to maintain your viewpoint of attempting to improve neighborhood conditions rather than fleeing from them.

Dave, I don't think that there is a need to be mean. Latifah could well be experiencing what she describes. There are certainly plenty of folks who post here who see a heavy black woman and automatically think "lazy" (or entitled, freeloading, shiftless, slutty, immoral--and a whole lot of other things). Why would you believe that the rest of the world is any different?

I personally hope that Latifah can rack up enough experience in her job to be able to have some better options. Not every white man in a position of authority is an idiot. But some are. And when someone is on the bottom, they typically have few options for movement.

For the same reasons the police need them, since they can't be everywhere at once.

I understand,but if I was late for work and took too much time on my breaks,I would be fired.When she changes her poor me attitude,then maybe things will change for her.No employer in the world will deal with an attitude like hers for one minute.

Wow if laitfah acts at her job even close to how she acts on here it's no wonder she doesn't get along with her boss.

Maybe your boss is racist. What have you done about it? I know affirmative action has so many employers so frightened of law suits that they investigate even the most ridiculous claims. I'm guessing there is no racism and you simply are a sub par employee and it's easier to play the race card than admit that you could perform better.

Reminds me of a secretary at a hospital I once worked at. She was of color and a little overweight. She was moved to 3 different offices over a period of 3 years. She was always late for work. Took over an hour for lunch each day instead of the normal 30 allowed. She also took several breaks a day instead of the normal 15 minute break every 4 hours. She was also rude to other staff and patients. She also thought surfing online was much easier than doing her job scheduling and checking in patients.

Each time she got wrote up she ranted and raved about the supervisor being racist. They finally stuck her with a black supervisor. Guess what she still performed sub par and was fired. She threatened to sue the hospital and called the elderly black lady who was her a supervisor an "uncle time house n word" in front of a room full of patients and staff.

Which just went to show who the true racist was.

I don't know, Dave. Pretty hard to know how she presents herself at work. We know that there are a whole bunch of well-educated professional white men who post here who would have some real employment issues if they acted at work the way that they act here.

And we know even less about her boss. He could easily be a jerk who plays favorites. We have certainly all known them.

Rather than beating up on Latifah for things we really don't know, I would rather leave it at "suck it up, it gets better."

And what we know even less is if this person is even for real or even black.She, or it could be playing us like a fiddle.You know the Topix game by now.Probably half of the posters on here are nothing close to what they say they are.It's just a game,something to pass the time,right?

Yeah.

For instance, I have long suspect that you are really a wealthy woman in a mansion, surrounded by Afghan hounds.

LOL.

Catman is not a woman!
However, I think Latifah is a man. You know me Reader. I think something is amiss...

Frankly, I am skeptical of anyone who posts with a name like Latifah. Generally it's some white man doing a vaudeville act. But, it this case, either it's someone being deliberately subtle, or someone genuine.

I thought it was you ... regardless, I also suspected it as being a fake.
