Jordan was not happy that Adam got the job and told Adam that it was because of his race. Adam considered this when he really thought about the job and Jordan’s abilities. Adam began to feel guilty for getting the job over Jordan and considered quitting when he started in a few days. When Jordan stopped speaking to Adam, Adam got upset. He started blaming Jordan for the problem and became more resolute in taking the job.
