    If you had the option would you rather work for a black man or be self-employed and make 50k or work for a company owned and operated by Caucasoids and make 90k?

    I am doing well for myself and family being a man who happens to be black...

    Simply don't allow for the hindrance that the system creates and go for your goals at full speed

    Self-employed and making 50k. Don't really care about the race of my employer, I am more interested in his/her way of behaving towards employees, but I would prefer to be self-employed even if I earn less money....but more freedom.

    I have done both fell short of the 90k mark but worked for them anyway. At this point in life self employed is best. I have worked for Black people and had issues with money and the game of we are coming up and want to take you with us. We can pay you **** near min wages but when we make it we got you.

    I'd for the 90k.
    I've owned my own business before and as far as freedom, the most came between chasing jobs and beating down customers doors trying to scrounge up work in lean times.
    It was somewhat feast or famine from summer to winter, didn't dig that much. It wouldn't matter much to me if I was working for someone who looked like me, I would much rather he/ she had good reliable honest employees who did.

    My money doesn't come easy and as long as I'm working for a company where I can practice the right livelihood meaning I'm not harming anyone, and or the earth, I really wouldn't care the color of my employer.

    Its better to own than to be owned.
    Better to be throned than dethroned.
    But if I had to settle for second flute.
    Let me know the amount I need to shoot.

    I will work for whoever to provide the best life for me family...Any other answer is compromising a better life for their family because of ego, pride or whatever you want to call it.

    Ridiculous.

    It depends which one offered me the most freedom and overall enjoyment of life. But I would never work with a jerk, high stress job anymore. I will never work for a corporation, been there done that. I work for myself and I like the freedom, I am my own boss.
