For those of you that go to Andy’s blog, you are probably familiar with this picture of Andy and his dog Sadie. When I started the theme for this week, I had no intention of actually showing pictures of people in compromising positions with their animal(s), after all, Homey don’t play dat, and besides, I’m not a freak. My intention was to show heartwarming pictures like this one. See what Andy is doing in the picture? Ya, he’s showing his dog love through a gentle kiss to the side of her head. Andy’s tongue is nowhere near the dogs mouth. And although I can’t be 100% certain, Andy’s right hand is probably on the ground, or perhaps on the dogs back. It’s not on her ass if that’s what you’re thinking. Yup, I’m pretty sure his hand is not on that dogs ass. At least 75% certain. And if you went to school, 75% would be a B. And folks, that’s aint half bad.
What’s the fastest way to get your name splashed across the Canwest News Service? Accuse Canada of being a racist hole, naturally!
Splashed across the papers today is this scathing indictment of hiring practices in Toronto. Apparently the employers of Toronto are showing a bias based on names:
University of B.C. Associate Prof. Philip Oreopoulos said yesterday his study shows that employers are “discriminating” against people with non-English names.
“The findings suggest that a distinct foreign-sounding name may be a significant disadvantage in the job market,” he said. “I did not expect to see this kind of discrimination. It’s against the law.”
