In fact this statement is not only racist against white people it’s racist against non-whites too the jobs we CENSORED deserve Isn’t that for the hiring manager to determine not you? If you’re throwing this pseudoinellectual racist self-entitled tantrum over a single hiring manager requiring a minor courtesy why would anyone want to hire you? Do you think most white applicants are automatically going know they should send a thank you letter? “First impressions matter” my ass You…you do realize that concept isn’t remotely limited to Gen Xers right? How fucking low does the bar have to be that asking for a thank you is too fucking much? Pathetic doesn’t even begin to cover it I thought it was common sense to say thank you for getting hired but it turns out I’ve been a superior high class white male all along I learn so much on Tumblr everyday “nonwhites are idiotic caveman with zero basic social skills” sounds kind of racist to me Meme
