Nde Ife…I heard something that I pray that I shall never hear again. An African business owner who owns an African gourmet store indicated that she desperately needed staff so I found her an African American employee. She proceeded to advise me that she does not employ African Americans. She prefers to employ only white American employees because black employees cannot be trusted. I was so shocked I had to compose myself. Surely she is at liberty to hire whoever she wants, but where does any African person come up with such asinine nonsense? Why would a successful person in the position to help the African American community choose not to? How can any African business person say that knowing fully well that the African American community could use her help? Why does she expect African Americans to support her business but she cannot support them??
Sadly this is the second time I have heard this. The other lady I heard it from was African American.
Take a good look! Some racists look like you and me. The difference is that they hate their own!
Otito Nile Diri Chineke!
