What’s is a name?
-Is it pride or shame?
Is it your moniker
That governs your fame?
Or is your tagging
The reason for lagging
Behind in the workplace
By implication of race?
A curious question
Of modern times,
The stealth of selection
A silent crime;
Allegations loud and clear
Suggesting that’s what happens here-
The land of opportunity
With Freedoms to admire,
Core values of equality
That other lands admire,
Reading in between the lines
And choosing then to just decline
Those whose names communicate
A reason to discriminate.
Is unmarked nominal prejudice
A genuine occupational injustice,
Or there other complications
Disclosed in the style of written oration?
The challenge of the Personal Statement
To match an employer’s explicit intent…
