The Ability to Speak English

… is largely just a euphemism for “foreigners need not apply.” It’s thinly veiled and very sad. I work as a computer programmer, and you really don’t need a high level of English fluency in order to succeed. Hell, my boss, who’s a thoroughbred New York mick, can’t spell worth shit. But the only guy whose been fired here just happened to be African, and he consistently turns away foreigners of all types: Koreans, Indians, Russians. It’s ridiculous.
