    Hello Family,

    After posting the Deadliest Job Thread, and mentioning that i've yet to see a Black person on any of those boats ... it got me to thinking about the fact that i've heard a few times about "the jobs Black folk won't do."

    So ... me being me ... i thought i'd post a thread about this.

    What jobs won't Black people do ... since folk claim these jobs exist.

    Please name the job(s) you've never seen a Black person doing.

    :heart:

    Destee

    i assume that black folk refuse to serve as the heads of major corporations since i see so few of us in those positions.

    be one of those ppl who does full body waxing.. yuck!

    Be on the federal triage team.. (i just cant decide who should die and who shouldnt)

    Play hockey.. pro. (self explanitory) :hockey:

    Fisherman.. shoot destee you watched the show.. you leave out with a crew of 10, and came back with 8 :missu: ) Im all for more money but dang!


    Pilot- have you ever seen the pilot be the only person to surive a crash? How often does he surive anyways?

    Bomb technician-- (not too keen on things that go boom!)

    **Basically, I will not do any job that allows my self esteem to be lowered, and let the public belittle me.

    I refuse to be a cop, judge, military person or politician because I'll end up killing myself out of self-hate.

    I've never seen a black bounty hunter.

    I've never seen a black pilot of a commercial aircraft.

    I've never seen a black high-rise exterior window-washer.

    I've never seen a black aligator wrestler.

    Black folks tend to shy away from careers in white supremist organizations.

    There are no jobs that Black people won't do. Black people have been everything from astronauts to zoologist. Although we have not seen it in the program I'm sure that in the history of crab fishing there has been a black person associated with doing something in that field. So Blacks have held office, been in outerspace, piloted aircraft and have explored the ends of the earth and beyond. This is a sure sign of progress considering our history in the country wouldn't you say?


    Peace......
