You, sir, have not been applying to jobs for a very long while; I mean this politely with zero rudeness; it is literally on everything these days, including sexual orientation and even disabilities. I'd be shocked if they didn't ask :( A new fear people have is what the heck do I tell these people, and how will this affect my chances of getting a screener call?

And it's not just minorities asking these quesitons, I have students asking me if saying their white will hurt their chances too lol it's all very surreal and through the looking glass.


I like speaking the truth even though it gets me into trouble.
