Retweeting Anti-Whiteness

It’s definitely a confusing environment. I’d love to just be evaluated on my skills but I can’t help my “weird” name and skin color. It always ends up in white people being a separate entity and everyone else in another. Honestly I am working hard to take the big titles and pay someday, but I have a feeling I will only be paid a fraction of what the white counterpart before me received for triple the work. Even the culture of networking and negotiation is a ‘white culture’ mindset; I know I never grew up learning which fork is appropriate and how to order alcoholic drinks while buttering your way up to the top. I’m a non-drinker who grew up eating roti and rice and I know it hurts my ‘professional’ image.

Interesting article, definitely hard to talk about with the possible backlash you can get, but it does need to be said.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
