    A couple of economists did a study on this a while ago (with black and white-sounding names). Those with white-sounding names got 50% more callbacks. The paper is called "Are Emily and Greg More Employable than Lakisha and Jamal? A Field Experiment on Labor Market Discrimination."

    Jose is an anglo saxxon spaniard name from Spain.
    But so many Mexicans and latino have that name in america, its not perceived as white, but it is.
    Much like Tyrone which has greek origins and irish origins. But is associated with black ppl in America.

    This also highlights the underlying issue of white supremacy, that 🤬 love to ignore.
    Its not about your name, its about who the name is associated with.
    Jose is a Spanish spaniard euro name. But because its associated with latinos in the states, u see how they perceive a name like Jose.
    That speaks to how evil white ppl are. And how blacks need to create our own businesses to employ our own kind, without them having to jump through hoops.

    Word, I was about to comment on that. 🤬 really need to start paying attention in 7th and 9th grade world history. That goes to show you how dumb and prejudice these HR muthafuckas are, because they weren't aware that Zamora was an Latino surname. This is yet another reason as to why these ole 🤬 🤬 need to stop giving their children these 🤬 up names that they pull out of their 🤬 .

    Tahani Tompkins was struggling to get callbacks for job interviews in the Chicago area this year when a friend made a suggestion: Change your name. Instead of Tahani, a distinctively African-American-sounding name, she began going by T. S. Tompkins in applications.

    Yvonne Orr, also searching for work in Chicago, removed her bachelor’s degree from Hampton University, a historically black college, leaving just her master’s degree from Spertus Institute, a Jewish school. She also deleted a position she once held at an African-American nonprofit organization and rearranged her references so the first people listed were not black.

    The dueling forces of assimilation and diversity have long battled for primacy in the American experience, most acutely among African-Americans. It’s not clear that assimilation has gained an edge here in the waning days of the decade, but the women’s behavior — “whitening” the résumé — is certainly not isolated. Ms. Tompkins and Ms. Orr were among the more than two dozen college-educated blacks interviewed for an article about racial disparities in hiring published last week on the front page of The New York Times. A half-dozen said they had taken steps to hide their race, or at least dial back the level of “blackness” signaled in their résumés.

    You are, so ignorant bruh I mean damn cuh.

    This coming from a 🤬 who doesn't know the difference between "rapid" and "rampant".

    Like I said, 🤬 .....

    JOSE' is a masculine given name that originated in a white region... Hence, a white man's name, genius.

    Now, stop embarrassing yourself and put me back on ignore, you dumb 🤬 .
