. I type this slowly and carefully and try to choose the best words I can My motive is to educate and bring reality into the discussion. I am male , white skin , nice looking , well dressed , live in the good side of town , rated commercial pilot , and have enjoyed many of life's pleasures and am thankful. But here is the thing .... I have had doors slammed in my face .... been turned down for jobs I was highly qualified for .... received poor service or no service in various places ... been jeered and mocked in business meetings ... have been treated like crap by police without having broken any laws .... on and on. Who do I blame ? ... nobody ... it is a simple fact of life that everybody encounters those same bumps and setbacks in careers and elsewhere. Society makes an error when blaming setbacks on race , skin color , or gender . "We White Guys" need to remind folks we go through those same things all the time. Then I became a sexist .... I owned a business that was male dominated , technical in nature , and hired local graduates .... then a woman applied for a job ... impressive resume ... took a chance and hired her ... cost me money , had to install a second bathroom and change area .... best decision I ever made .. I found that women can multi-task better than anyone ... teach a woman a protocol and she will follow it meticulously and dependably .... "men" always want to fix things that are not broken and change procedures ... I became a confirmed sexist and gender biased , over 30% of my staff are female .... our quality control is highest it has ever been. Played the race card too .... I found workers from the Caribbean Islands and other less advantaged countries possessed talents not found locally .... they came from a background where they could not throw money or technology at a problem ... they had to solve issues standing on their own feet .... once exposed to our abundant resources they thrive and prosper and problem solve better than anyone . I hire nearly every applicant. Apologies to all the "white men " whom I did not hire .... not to fear .... I know you can handle it .... life is like that and you accept it as such. We have been doing it silently and for a long time . Nobody can beat us at that. .
