A white man applied for the same job and since both applicants had similar qualifications, they were asked to take a test and 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 Tyrone and said, "Thank you for coming to the interview, but we’ve decided to give the white guy the job."
Tyrone, "What 'cho mean, why you be doing that, you be racist? We both got 19 questions right? This is Detroit and I be Black, I should get the job."
Manager, "We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you got wrong."
Tyrone said, "Tell me how would one wrong 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’."
