The Playing Field Ain’t Level…but you already knew that

November 13, 2007

I saw a blurb on the news this morning that said that Blacks trail in growth of Income.  Now I don’t like to play the race card, but if you are an African-American in corporate america, you already know that the playing field is not level.  But one of the best ways to not let that get to you is to continue to do the best you can at all times, just like it says in the Bible in Colossians 3:23, Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.  Believe me, I know that even if you are always giving it your best, sometimes you still get shafted on the economic gains that you seek; and there are a lot of reasons for that, it’s not always a matter of race, but when you see stories like this and live the experiences that you live, especially for an African-American male in the USA, it’s easy to think that race is always a part of the picture.

I happen to currently work for a company (Monster.com) that recognizes the need to have a diverse workforce, so I know they are trying to make a difference.

Here is a link to the same story that I saw today on MSNBC.com.  I actually had a more funny interesting story to bring you today, but when I saw this, I thought this was more important.  What do you think?

I found it interesting…I hope you do too.  DeaconDavid

As though straight out of some biblical parable, for whatever reason, a percentage of those engaging in an activity will do it the good way while a percentage will do it the bad way. In sports or academics, they call it cheating. In our industry, they call it fraud….

This story is of interest to me because it hits home to my day job with Monster.com. As the Business Development Manger for the Monster AdNetwork, I have to be aware that everyone I talk to about lead generation and revenue sharing is not being totally honest about how they do business. That’s disturbing, and I’m not sure how you fix it, but that’s why I found this story to be interesting. Are there other people in the lead generation, Internet Marketing, AdNetwork business that have comments on this?
