Blame it on your racist dog

“My dog is racist. Not me,” claims a Belgian businessman who rejected a Nigerian job applicant.

The Nigerian arrived at the Belgian’s wrought-iron business and was immediately confronted by a barking dog. So the Belgian turned the Nigerian away before he could even enter the office.

The Belgian wrote on his labor office letter that he could not hire the man because of his color. He was afraid the dog would bite him. The labour office concluded that the Belgian was racist and has removed him from its list of potential employers.

The “racist dog” idea has been used in a few TV shows, like Curb Your Enthusiasm and King of the Hill. But “racist dog” is more than a punch line. See for yourself and google it. There is a lot of discussion on the internet on wether dogs can actually be racist or not.

Contrary to popular believe dogs are not totally color-blind.

    Dogs are bothered by things that are different. Their racism isn’t based on social factors, just the fact that anyone who doesn’t look like their owner bugs them.

    People, however, aren’t stupid enough to have this as an excuse.
