Imagine being hired for a job for which you are not remotely qualified. All through the hiring process you put on the brave front, bluffed the people doing the interviewing, and due to your charm, loquaciousness, and intelligence, you were hired. You did it. You fooled them. You were the one they selected.




At Politically Speaking, we come together to share our views on politics and society. We are a proud supporter of equality and fair treatment for all people. We stand against racism and the oppression of people of color. Here at Politically Speaking, when we see, we speak!
