"It is harder for some Black people to get jobs even with higher education and knowledge. White privilege comes into play when it comes to jobs. Black people are quotas. Some companies have quotas to reach for diversity issues. Yeah, that still exists. I have had jobs taken from me by White people with no knowledge of the position but just graduated from school. I have over 20 yrs of experience with a degree and was even told a few times I was over qualified. No I didn't meet their color or look code. I wasn't tall, blonde, skinny, or White. In one position I would have been the only Black person there. So Todd you can take your opinion and shove it. If you don't know what it's like to Black, then don't speak to us about us." - Esse Johnson
