“The Civil Rights Movement made somebody read your resume.”

From EEOC Commissioner Chai Felblum:

Al Sharpton at Saturday’s March “spoke of meeting an African-American man of some achievement who told him, ‘Look at my résumé. The civil rights movement didn’t write it.'” Sharpton said he replied, “Civil rights didn’t write your résumé, but the civil rights movement made somebody read your résumé.”
