Question: Do you think dreadlocks should be accepted in corporate America?
Question: Why do you push "incentive-backed diversity goals"? Isn't "incentive-backed diversity goals" simply another way to describe paying, or even bribing, execs to promote more women and minorities? And if you're going to pay more to those who promote more women and minorities, why not also pay more, directly, to women and minorities, and bypass the "middlepersons"?
Question: Why is it that when white people tell a minority joke, they all think it's really funny, but when a minority tells a white joke right after they finished their minority joke, they don't think it is funny ... it seem to me that can't take it. Is that true?
Question: In a previous question you talked about whites being a minority in 2050. Will there be a redistribution of wealth and power by 2050 so that there is equitable wealth and power among all groups? Or is the issue of diversity management in 2050 really about the white minority managing a non-white majority?
Question: What's your opinion on employee networks/affinity groups?
Question: Do you feel entitled to success and position just because you are white? Do your friends generally feel entitled? Do you feel that white men are smarter than black men and white people smarter than blacks, as a whole? When a white man, in general, competes with a black man for a job, does the white man automatically think that he is a better candidate? Just wanted to know!
Question: Have you ever used a racial slur or laughed at a racial joke?
Question: When I apply for a job, should I put my ethnicity? Especially in places like California that don't have affimative-action policies? When I write my race, is this hurting my chances to find a job? I have an engineering degree, with good grades, and 8 years' experience, but I can't find a job. I wonder if it is because of my race.
Question: Why do white people considered themselves "unraced" but think everyone else is ... AND ... what can I do as a minority to counteract that without coming off with a "chip on my shoulder"?
Question: See now, that's the problem: I always tell people, 'You're not "White"! You're: Irish, Italian, German, Polish, Scottish, Czech, Russian, etc., etc. -- something! So, please don't disrespect your ancestors and your heritage!' So, Mr. Visconti, what are YOU? I'd love to hear wonderful and fascinating things about your heritage. Let's all share!
Question: Your surname seems of possible Italian descent as is mine, but I am of Southern Italian extraction. I believe that Theodore Roosevelt once issued an executive order declaring that we Southern Italians are actually black as part of a miscegenation ruling. Are we really white?
