You realize that you DID Make it about the color of their skin. You didn;t say.. when I can hire anyone else that won't make me walk on eggshells..you stated.. "when I can hire a LATINO, or NATIVE AMERICAN, or ASIAN, or white guy".
So yes.. you ARE making it about the color of their skin. And yes you did discuss why its reasonable to pass over a black persons resume:
You just made it a point that you though it was reasonable to pass over a black person for someone like Bill or Beth so you don't have to "deal with the hassle",.. THAT YOU ASSUME will happen because the person is black.

By the way.. as the father of minority children... let me explain something to you. The incidence of black people or any other minority walking around with a "chip on their shoulder" looking to any reason to sue is a giant fat LIE. For the number of minorities.. and black people in this country.. our courts would be filled with lawsuits for your supposed slights. But they are not.
And you know why? Because minorities by and large do not complain when racist crap happens. It happens so frequently that if you wasted your time everytime it happened, you would be busy 24/7 complaining. Generally the complaints only happen when its been so egregious or because its been going on so long that enough is enough.
I understand that. My sons deal with almost daily racism. A coach, or teammate or a another kid in school doing something or saying something.. or posting something on facebook etc. If every time that happened in school I ran to the office.. I might as well camp there. So my sons learn to deal.. JUST LIKE ALMOST ALL MINORITIES. However, WHEN it became so bad.. for example when a kid threatened to shoot my son with an arrow in archer class. THEN I brought it to the schools attention.
And when I explain that this behavior has been going on for a while.. they say "ohhh that doesn't happen in our school"... no.. yes it does.. its just that they are ignorant of it. That's a reality that a lot of minorities face. They deal with it on several levels and very frequently.. but they don't complain.
And of course when they do.. someone like yourself says "YOU ARE A MILITANT"...
When all they have done.. .like me.. has present the facts.
