Based on my life experiences, I'm convinced that most black people in poor circumstances have chosen those circumstances rather than been
unwillingly placed there.
For example, I temporarily moved to a certain area that happens to have a large black population. As such, when I got a job here, a large portion of
the employees were black... A third to half maybe. Every day I'd see most of the white employees (most but certainly not all) busting their asses and
doing hard work to get the job done as best as they could. Never have I seen one of the black employees even attempting to do a good job. Not once.
There was one situation in which one of them actually spent 45 minutes pretending to do something just for the sake of not having to work. One
of the managers sat with security and watched this employee screw around for that 45 minutes on camera. Another time, another of the black employees
was asked to do something he didn't feel like doing, so he disappeared and apparently hid for about an hour instead of just doing it. He was
ultimately fired because the manager became furious at this point. On a third occasion, two black employees were assigned to do my particular job, but
they decided to screw around and barely do anything, so I was asked by other employees to go take over for them as the work was simply not getting
This was a job where employees had certain advancement opportunities, and I've seen employees working really hard at getting those advancements,
raises and promotions... But I've never seen any of the black employees so much as try. For the most part, they would show up, screw around all shift,
and expect their paycheck - assuming they didn't lose their job for being arrested, which happened. Sadly this doesn't even surprise me, as I've seen
black employees walking around at work openly showing off the drugs they had in their pockets. I'm completely serious.
Remember how I said that I feel that most black people in poor circumstances are choosing their circumstances? They might complain that they have no
opportunities, or that the system is keeping them down, etc etc. Well, I'd like to make two points. First, colleges here are cheap, and they take
pretty much anyone. I'm not using any grants or scholarships or free money or anything, and by the time I graduate, I'm only going to owe something
like $15k for a B.S. that I'll be able to make a 6 figure salary with someday. Degrees are accessible to anyone here who wants them. What I do see
however is black students attending every semester and then failing out and not returning. In one of my classes, I s**t you not, one of the black
students would actually lean back in his chair, sleep, and snore during class. Needless to say, I haven't seen him around since that semester ended.
Not surprising considering that when it came time for him to present his big class project that every student had to do, he had nothing to present
because he didn't do it.
Point two is the two jobs I've had while here - it's an area with a large black population, so accordingly, both jobs had many black employees. Black
people can't say that they aren't being hired here, because they are. They just don't do the actual work or try to advance.
