beat me to it, ivy.
I certainly wouldn't be less likely to hire a black professional. In fact, the need for AA speaks volumes about society and would thus make me even more likely to hire a fellow black person over anyone else. QuoteI'm personally going to judge everyone's merits individually, but I know numerous people who say they will not go to a black doctor, as blacks routinely get into med schools with 3.0's and 26 MCAT's. Yea whateverrr. Having a black doctor as a father, I know for a fact that many racist whites talk a good game about not going to this and that minority person in xyz profession but are unsurprisingly full of it. My father broke the virtual monopoly that jewish doctors had over the medical business in the area before we arrived. Funnily enough, the majority of his patients nowadays are snooty white people who begrudge him his wealth even as they come to him because he is more personable and accessible than all the other doctors, and goes the extra mile. They like being treated like his top priority instead of [the] money-making annoyances [that they are]. As racist as they are, they're still attention-whores like most people and will pay to be cooed over by the most attentive and most professional doctor around...even if they hate that he's black and want to pretend he's not their intellectual superior by far. Billing is that much more fun for me when I know the source is an unwilling racist.Everything I said about my dad--ditto for my equally black mom who's a lawyer with a majority white clientele now.Face it: Only the most stupid racist (is that redundant?) would choose the rest over the best, especially in something as sensitive as medical or legal care. I wish it were otherwise, if only because racists (and that's what someone who has the audacity to look down on a professional because he/she is black is) deserve bad service.

Enjoy your bitter, worthless life. My! Aren't you a foul mouthed little c*nt? Oh well, the shame isn't on you, it's on that undoubtedly worthless whore-monkey of a slut mother of yours who produced something as uncultured as you and didn't have the decency to beat it to death. If we were face to face, I'd be inclined to bless your scandalous forehead with my spit. As it is, I'll have to settle for telling you the truth about yourself.
