RACIAL PROFILING 

RACIAL PROFILING

According to The Washington Times, "soft skills," a euphemism which translates into "punctuality, proper attitude, and a willingness to work like mules for much less than one might imagine" gives Hispanic workers a distinct edge over other ethnicities in the Southern job market. In an article titled "Black to Brown: The Shifting Color ofPolitics," the Times reports that, some personnel agencies in Memphis almost exclusively hire Hispanics over black or white workers. A man described only as the "Panamanian clerk at Paramount staffing," was quoted assaying, "blacks and many whites fail their drug tests." So much for that Cheech and Chong reunion.
