I always enjoy talking to the wise. It allows me to take a minute and take a look at my life in other terms. I was told to keep my overarching vision and make sure that whatever I am doing for my life I am comfortable with and have a love for. I was reminded that in the end I am the only person that controls my destiny.
I’ve heard so many of my brothers tell me that the way to keep a woman is to treat them like shit. If that’s the requirement for a relationship then I’ll be single for a long time. Why deprive anyone from the real you?
Because the sound is no longer...
R&B and Soul done well.
Unemployed Black Woman Pretends to be White, Job...
November 15, 2012 | Filed under: BizTechNews | Posted by: bowatkin If you don’t believe that racism in the job market is real, then please read this article by Yolanda Spivey. Spivey, who was seeking work in the insurance industry, found that she wasn’t getting any job offers. But as an experiment, she changed her name to Bianca White, to see if employers would respond differently. You’ll be shocked and amazed by her phenomenal story.
Yolanda Spivey Writes:
First, I created an email account and resume for Bianca. I kept the same employment history and educational background on her resume that was listed on my own. But I removed my home phone number, kept my listed cell phone number, and changed my cell phone greeting to say, “You have reached Bianca White. Please leave a message.” Then I created an online Monster.com account, listed Bianca as a White woman on the diversity questionnaire, and activated the account.
That very same day, I received a phone call. The next day, my phone line and Bianca’s email address, were packed with potential employers calling for an interview. I was stunned. More shocking was that some employers, mostly Caucasian-sounding women, were calling Bianca more than once, desperate to get an interview with her. All along, my real Monster.com account was open and active; but, despite having the same background as Bianca, I received no phone calls.
