Controversy or something that triggers deep thought. Those always make for wonderful blogs. You have a wonderful knack of making a person THINK. So ask those questions that make you dig deep and you're blog will (at least to me) continue and thrive in it's successes!

This blog is exactly why I like you as my pastor.

We're patiently waiting for pastor's new post. Oh yeah, he owes us one on salvation without heaven too doesn't he?

I ALMOST agree with you. BUT... When you come in "on your own time" to get an application, that truly is your first interview. Your appearance has a great impact on whether or not you will be called in for an "official" interview. When you ask for an application you may be on your own time, but you're asking the employer for their time and money.

I have been a supervisor a good percentage of my working career. Trust me when I say first impressions are the most important. If a person that wants the application cares, they will present themselves in such a manner when requesting the form to be on "my time." That not only applies to clothing, but appearance (shaving, haircut, etc) and hygiene.

The only way I can recommend you to get past the initial "judgment" is to start your own business so you can write your own rules. That's the benefit of our free America. Not many other countries can you do such a thing.

No, but bring it into the workplace. Not only do I have an opinion, but I must present my business in a fashion as not to offend my patrons nor make them uncomfortable. A famous statement that MY boss makes (as you well know who he is) he says "Wear my brand, take my money, do it my way. Represent my company as I would when you wear my brand."

Now, define diversity for me. I'm all for your hopeful image, I just don't see it as realistic.

Is diversity and the celebration of one's heritage a display of past culture? Or is it wearing pants half down their crack and a hat to one side? I surely wouldn't hire someone that showed me their undergarments. I still have a professional image to display. If someone came in with "culturalistic" clothing on then I would have no problem considering that person for a job, but when they come in with their pants half way to their ankles, I have a problem with that. That has nothing to do with culture, it's the image of a thug.

No, you're right. But you have to start somewhere, and it seems the media is the stirring pot to do that.

The problem is, the race as a majority DOES ask to be treated differently. e.g. affermative action, minority scholarships, minority programs, etc. If you want equality, you should ask for it as a whole.
