    That's what I'm trying to say though - I don't see a Scots name at all, because I have no background or knowledge that would indicate said name is likely of Scottish ancestry when I see it.

    And you keep ignoring that based on statistics, asians are getting the interviews and doing better than white people. I see why because it paralyzes your argument. So you overlook it and repeat the same rhetoric
    Show me your statistics.

    I never made an assumption about the hiring manager. I simply shared some information with another poster as an aside about the ETYMOLOGY (as opposed to anthropology) of the names in question. While I have no name to make assumptions about your English skills, I am beginning to draw conclusions about them from your posts.

    You only bolster my position by pointing out that African slaves took the surnames of their WHITE masters and the privilege that came with that.

    Actually, I make no assumptions anymore. Or, rather, when I catch myself making assumptions, I make a conscious effort to put them out of decision process. And I looked at several candidates and interviewed 7. These were the two I received on the first day and they stand out because they feature prominently in my life to this day.

    "Common sense" is the argument typically reserved to defend a position that is quite common but has nothing to do with good sense.

    That's not common sense, it's an assumption.

    Logic would dictate that since travel is so relatively easy these days, people immigrate more.
    And keep their names.
    It thus follows that a name does not provide an accurate indicator of a person, beyond ancestry.

    Re: Is There Such a Thing as "White Privilege"?

    If the manager in question is selecting a person for an interview based solely on their name, that manager is not a good manager.

    Or at least not good at hiring new employees.

    A good manager would interview BOTH.
