No - but then again, I'm too busy to worry about stuff like that. IMO, too many folks are going around looking for reasons to get upset. Do your thing, let others do theirs. If they somehow don't treat you well, just don't go back. Life's too short!

I'd probably have a job in the field I want (non-profit community advocacy social services etc etc etc) by now if I was Hispanic, but that's just my opinion.

9 times out of 10 someone who is from the neighborhood (even without experience) will get the job over someone with the education. And then when I do get the job (like my previous employer) I get dirty/weird looks because I'm white. But, that's just my experience and opinion.

If we can merge all the 1604/Braun threads into one "super" thread, too.

Funny....my DIL works for a non-profit social services type employer, and she's white.

Have you considered that perhaps the issue is yours? I'm NOT trying to be ugly with you, but generally speaking if someone can't get along with others, they usually find the issue is in their own back yard. May be time for some serious soul-searching and insight.

Good luck to you!
