43. Nah, I ain't buyin' that
You two a tag team, or what?

If there are managers being "TAUGHT not to question the authenticity of ANY documentation," you've got a problem, IMO. There's no INHERENT racism in validating documents, but I can see where the implementation might need to be honed a bit (e.g., you don't JUST go after Latinos for your document validating, or question theirs automatically).

Any time someone tells you they are being prohibited from engaging in standard business or personnel practices because of fear of racism suits, you can feel 100% comfortable in questioning THEM and THEIR commitment to racial equality, because that's just bogus.
