Really I don't entirely understand how being called an African-American is insulting considering the parallels it draws between terms like Chinese-American or in my singular case Bengali-American, but the entire point of me addressing this crowd, is different aspect on the situation I can recieve here. I hope to use my experience from this campaign to jump start my career in politics, and for me I don't want my future job choices to end up inverting whatever morals I got throughout my years of education. Situations like this are expected in a position like mine, idealogy vs. a paying job, and alas in politics there are alot of factors that are frankly out of a person's control. Our clientele is the voter, and the voter is a hard to manage beast under the best of circumstance, and us campaigners try trick it into thinking it agrees with our ideals.

Thanks alot for your suggestions guys, I think I will go ahead and give the kid a chance. Regarding the candidate, he is running in a mostly liberal state, and most of the conservatives are either dead or dieing, so they are a bit overly traditional. In all seriousness I when I was phone banking many of the voters cited issues like "there is too many Democrats in office" or after they ask for my name then here a heavily Arab sounding syllable then immediately hang up. The kid though is surprisingly quite conservative, saying his experience in a foster home showed him the large amount of what he perceived to be freeloaders in the American social security system. If he was liberal I would have just given him a referendum to our opponent's campaign, though the other camp is pretty pathetic.

Basically, I have managed to finagle myself into a campaign advisor position for a politician in the States, and I have run into an issue that has really stone-walled me. My position ordains that I screen all the volunteers that attempt to join the campaign. I do other stuff besides just recruiting, but this is where I ran into my problem. So today a young man about 19-ish came into the office, wanting to join, and after asking a little bit of background information I found out exactly how f*cked this guy's life has been. Frankly I was impressed that he even had the sense to try and get it together, considering his incredibly crappy past, and try and work for the campaign. Then however it hit me, he was a young and impoverished African-American boy with a very broken nose and a very shady past, and that this would not fly with the heavily conservative voter base the candidate I was working for was trying to reach out to. As much as I hate stereotypes, the harassment and bereavement he would face while working here would not be worth the experience. I myself am not conservative, but a job is a job. I couldn't flat-out turn him away, even though I am on my way to being a politician myself I haven't become that soulless yet, so i told him to come in to the office next Monday. So guys got any opinions or ideas on what I should do? This is a touchy topic and I think a bit more diverse opinion will help me make the best decision.
