Racism is alive and well.
My boyfriend is a security guard in an office building, and it's really far away from his house. He was looking to get transferred to another building, closer to where he lives. This almost happened, but recently, he was informed by his boss that he was staying at his current building. He asked why.

Apparently, a client in the building wanted him to stay because he's white. The guy who would have been replacing him is black, and the client didn't want a person of color to be the first person people see when they walk into the building.

My boyfriend is now looking for a new job.

I'm so pissed off that people still actually do this kind of stuff.Yeah, Yeah, whatever. You're full of shit. Let's get to the good stuff.

11. Yes, racism is alive and well no matter how much we want to ignore it
or to pretend it does not exist. Fortunately, for this election, most of those people were never going to vote for the Democratic candidate anyways, but undoubtedly some of them are Democrats also.That's correct. The Republicans are going to vote for their candidate. That means the only racists that will not be voting for the Democrat candidate are Democrats.

I know it's a bullshit story but I still can't help but comment. The boss told him it was because of color? Yeah, that happens all the time.

How is him staying on the job longer going to help? Will the Black man turn white with age? Oh I understand. No transfer. How Bouncy!
