Ok, since it seems some of you on here are experts on discrimination i have a question. This past week my little group at my job had a meeting with the vice president of the company. You see I currently work for this company where we have to call low income families to set up appointments so they can use their insurance carriers funded by the government and such. Point is that on the lists given to me by them, i have blacks, hispanics, russians, and even whites! So I guess we could safely say all are low income families. The VP decided instead of being general to use only one group as an example and she decided to refer to the latin culture. She implied that the latinos are the ones who are in their low income situation because they don't bother to better themselves. They go and have 8 children and don't bother to take care of them. She even went as far as saying they're ignorant. I swear! My co-worker who is also latin looked at me and i was like to myself did she say what i think she said?!? then later in private i had a mini meeting with an upper manager and AGAIN she used latinos as an example of how ignorant they are and don't know how to properly care for their children. I had to sit there and wonder if perhaps i'm being a little too defensive. But i don't think i am. The vp thought she was being cute by making all these comments. Not that it should matter but her and the upper manager are both white ladies. my co-worker later told me that's discrimination! Now i could understand between friends it would OKAY to loosen up and say whatever BUT in a professional work environment i feel that was uncalled for. no? I think i'm quitting this job this week although i have moments of sticking it out and proving to that VP that not all latinos are ignorant!
