Sup Travellers?! Your ability to get a good job is clearly not only determined by your qualifications. Discrimination is a HELL OF A THING and one person, less qualified, may steal a job from a more qualified person all because of one thing --- race.

Now, this isn't new information since racial discrimination has been in existence for a pretty long time but some may think that the online market pushes towards colorblind hiring since most of it is done without mention of race but that is entirely untrue.

Your name says a lot and if your name sounds black or Latino then the employer instantly categorizes you as such without even seeing you. 

In the video above, José Zamora, proves the racism that exists in colorblind hiring by dropping the "s"in his name. After the change of his name from José to Joe his inbox got filled up with responses within a week.

José had a lot more to say so I recommend that you check out the video above if you haven't already. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
