    networking rather then pure merit, the fewer minorities are hired into what is still a white business world. And I have been to enogh business social functions with enough alcohol to lower the usual filters to hear anti-Black, anti-Semetic, anti-Hispanic hate to make me want to barf.  Also it dangerous to be non-Christian (atheist, agnostic, etc even if you keep quiet about it) and some people will not only discriminate but actively cause trouble for those with "liberal" posiitions like belief in climate change, evolution, and that Al Gore really did help commercialize the Internet.

    I don't dislike all conservatives... mainly just the ones that vote Republican.

      I'll say this one more time until it sticks.

      I never talked about filling positions based on networking.  Read my prior posts from start to finish and you will see that.  I suggested networking as a means of gaining access to job opportunities that may otherwise prove elusive if you're relying on what you see at the unemployment office, on Internet job boards at and those cattle-like job fairs.  This is not exclusive to any part of any class or ethnicity, anyone can do it.

      If you were about to lose your house or the ability to feed your children, and you found out that your brother works for a construction company that had an open position, would you turn down an interview (not the JOB, an interview) because of this principle that seems to be so highly regarded by some?
