Test results have more than answers . . .

Tyrone applied for a fork lift operator job at a famous firm based in Detroit.


A white man applied for the same job and since both applicants had similar

qualifications, they were asked to take a test and led to a quiet room with

no interruptions by the Manager.


When the results were in, both men had scored 19 out of 20.


The manager went to Tyrone and said, “Thank you for coming to the interview,

but we’ve decided to give the white guy the job.”


Tyrone: “What ‘cho mean, why you be doing that, you be racist! We boff gots

19 questions right? This be Detroit and I be Black, I should get da job.”


Manager: “We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the

question you got wrong.”


Tyrone said, “Tell me how would one wrong answer be better than another?”


Manager: “Simple. On question number 7 the white guy wrote down, ‘I don’t know.’


You put down, “Me neither.”
