Reply To: Racial divide at first job

I think that both White and Black people have lower expectations of Blacks. I further think that racial preferences perpetuate those opinions. Even supporters of affirmative action show their true opinions by dismissing a Clarence Thomas or a Ward Connerly as a 'token' or an 'affirmative action baby.' I think you can win respect by perseverence, respecting yourself, and by not choosing the role of victim. You have very little control over other peoples' attitudes, but a great deal of control over your own attitude. Show them what you're made of! Good luck.
