Anyone else have a lot of shame about their career? I’ve been successful, but have jumped around a lot, worked in toxic environments with poor managers, acted immaturely and just got laid off due to COVID. I wish I could go back in time and have a much cleaner career.

Us white people need to put ourselves in colored people’s shoes. How would we feel working in a predominantly “colored” work environment where everyone wants us to act “colored” (whether Black, Asian, Latinx)? How comfortable are we going to be day by day when being yourselves mean no promotion and could get us fired? When our fate depends on another race who gives favoritism to their own race? Colored people are the most resilient people in corporate America. The true backbone of our success
