When I owned a small company I had 3 employees. A 20 something white girl, a 75 year old jewish man and when I hired the next employee it was a latina girl. I never thought of their race or gender in hiring them, I was interested in their penmenship and their intelligence.
When I set out to hire somebody else the cantidates would come in and fill out the applications. The only one I saw was a black girl as I walked in the front door. After she left I looked at her application and the question asked if she spoke a second language. She marked yes and put English. I wonder what her first language was? I didn't even consider her as a cantidate. If she can't fill out an application correctly, I wouldn't expect her to be able to do anything else correctly.
Does that make me racist?
