I can relate to that and I’m not even black.

I was born in Africa and got my first job in North America as a ‘Token Black’. My new employer was rather surprised to see that I was white.

Since then, I have on numerous occasions been turned down for a job as soon as the employer learned that I was born in Africa.

When I mentioned to a friend that being an African American White causes trouble while job hunting, he said that I have nothing to complain about, since he is an African American White Jew…

The only solution to American racism is to start your own company.
