Sipho applied for a fork lift operator job at a famous firm based in Jo'burg.
A white man applied for the same job and since both applicants had similar
qualifications, they were asked to take a test and were led to a quiet room
with no interruptions by the Manager.
When the results were in, both men had scored 19 out of 20.
The manager went to Sipho and said, "Thank you for coming to the interview, but
we've decided to give the white guy the job."
Sipho, "And why would you be doing that, are you a racist?
We both got 19 questions right? This being Jo'burg and me being Black surely
I should get the job."
Manager, "We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the
question you got wrong."
Sipho said, "Tell me now, how would one incorrect answer be better than another?"
Manager, "Simple. On question number 7 the white guy wrote down, 'I don't know.'
You put down, 'Neither do I'."
