Damn, I Wish I Weren’t White . . .

A Washington Examiner headline, “Poll shows hiring managers discriminating against white men” caught my eye this morning. It comes at a time when being a White man seems a little unpopular. But is it fair? If the Black percentage of the population is around 13 percent, doesn’t that mean they should have about 13 percent of the jobs?

In the 2015-2016 television season, 74.6 percent of roles for cable scripted shows went to white actors, whilst 13.3 percent went to black actors, and just 2.6 percent to Asian actors.” Okay, this seems about right, or does it?

The majority of TV newsroom employees in the United States in 2020 were white, with African American staff and Hispanic and Latino employees making up less than 25 percent of the total. The survey projected that the share of Hispanic and Latino employees would increase slightly in 2021 but the forecasted percentage remains under 13 percent.” Somebody works with the same math I do.

  
Employed persons by detailed occupation, sex, race, and Hispanic origin <-This link goes to the actual data page


  Officials and administrators, public administration..............................      720     52.6      13.0         
    Administrators, protective services............................................       54     25.3      13.3    Inspectors and compliance officers, except construction............................      247     36.4      14.4
  Dietitians.......................................................................       74     90.2      18.7
 Prekindergarten and kindergarten..................................................      647     97.7      14.7
Social, recreation, and religious workers..........................................    1,556     57.3      17.4             Social workers......................................................................     848     74.0      22.7       Recreation workers.................................................................      129     74.2      20.5 

And, I can keep going down the list. The end column at the far right is the percentage of Black people in that occupation. Don't take my word for it, follow the link above to go to the actual data page. My point is Black people actually populate our workforce in some very good numbers. Add professional sports players and entertainers figures to this and I believe you will find that Black people have a bunch of the good paying jobs, exceeding the 13 percent  discussed above.

Now, we go and turn the apple-cart upside down because folks out there are making their living off of racism telling people that are too lazy a bunch of lies and unfairly taking jobs from the White man. I find this offensive as fuck!

I have never taken any opportunity away from anybody. Never owned a slave. Don't care what color your skin is. And, I have never taken the food off another mans table based on the color of his skin. Corporate America is afraid off the Black man, so instead of doing the right thing and ensuring that their hiring practices are color-blind, they turn around and do the opposite and create a new racial issue.

Listen up folks . . . We are where we are today because folks are making money off racism, and we keep letting them do it. It's not hard to recognize men as equals and if you can mature enough to be color-blind most issues will resolve themselves. Folks out there that can't mature to that level, are the problem. They come in all colors and they aren't helping nobody, but themselves at our expense. Corporations, Politicians, Government is so busy trying to make new racial issues that they can't see they are the problem. If they would have treated men as equals a long time ago, we would be in a much better place today . . .
