Former child star of the "Cosby Show" Raven Symone, has just put her foot in her confused mouth again. Symone, who is black and a lesbian, but in the past stated she is not black, African or gay, upped the ante today in stating, "I am not going to hire you" if you have a ghetto name. The ignorant statement offended many online. Many people have lost respect for Symone this year due to the insulting views she has expressed on the morning talk show "The View." It has become the view from the toilet with the crap coming out of Symone's mouth.
If you are an employer you are not supposed to discriminate. The law forbids it. You should seek to hire competent individuals, who have a good attitude and are willing to show up on time and work. When you start disqualifying people based on their names, you have firmly broken the law in acts of discrimination. At the end of the day, on a moral and basic human level, you should not judge a person by their name. How can you slam someone for the name their parents gave them.
