I'm having a moral dilemma and I thought I'd put it up for debate.
My aunt works for the municipality and two days ago she contacted my mother saying that the city told her to get the resumés of 10 somali youth that they're going to give well paying jobs to. Apparently the pay will be in the $23 range.
My aunt wants me to be one of those youth, however I'm slightly disturbed by that. I find it to be repugnant to so cynically benifit from ethnicity especially when I don't even believe that ethnicity has significance beyond the social sphere. Additionally, I'm sure that this was done because of the poverty amidsts some parts of the somali community. Except, I'm not poor.
What do you think?
