The "People Power" Job Superbook: Book 4. Minority Business - Job Guide (Black, Asian, Arab, Hispanic, Jewish, Native, Gay, Women, Seniors (Over 50), Youth, Young Adults, College Students)
Employers are not allowed to ask you questions about your race during an interview. In this era of reverse discrimination, there's a backlash against affirmative action but you don't want it or need it anyway. You're good enough to make it on your own. Be cool whenever you go for an interview or go to work. Don't let your minority status eat away at the back of every thought, analyzing your coworkers for possible racist motives. Just be yourself. Forget about it as best as you can. In today's political world, diversity is often a plus. You might get hired as the token minority but don't let it phase you either way. Do the best job you can as you. Don't try to be too vanilla or too extreme in flaunting your minority differences at work. Be yourself. Most people will like you if you're a good person but there will always be a few jealous racists in there who are really mad at themselves for not being as successful as they wanna be and taking it out on you.
