If you’re on what’s essentially your last of three interviews for a job, and it’s down to you and one other guy, and you know the interviewer wants to hire you, he’s basically said as much, should you allow the conversation to turn to politics?
If it does, should you respond to his opinions on affirmative action (which he has for some reason deigned to share with you) with the sentence, “that just sounds racist to me?”
Assuming you’re both white guys, and he’s about 10 or 15 years older than you.
If later in the conversation you find out that the man who would be your manager has a virulent hatred of unions, even though the job is not one where unions are particularly relevant, should you allow that to influence your decision, if you think unions are the only reason that America got through the late 19th and early 20th century with any shred of civilization intact, as opposed to being a slave state run by a tiny wealthy oligarchy?
I probably would have been happier not knowing about his politics.
He seems a nice guy for all that.
