You know I was trying not to mention that.....

it was a reality for me personally in Georgia...

though not with J&J.....

the paperbag test....... was applied here in Georgia by many members of the organization.... tthough not all..... but enough that it was a common practice.....

I do not think skin color is an issue any more.... at least not to the extent it used to be.... I think income and status was and still is a significant factor....


which is why.... it's good to instill principles of pride.... etc....

but.... those principles of pride in organizations such as these are reserved to be taught for the selected few who already had enough pride in themselves (and the right connections with others) to work towards the height of their industry or society.....


It's funny how we don't really discuss painful things like this in our community....

things like this have worked to double destroy the self esteem of many.......

Peace,
Virtue
