I agree with #1, 4, and hard core with 7. Non-black men LOVE their women and I’ve never in my life seen an African or Caribbean man talk about black women with anything other than love and adoration. I used to want to date an African American man but chiiiiile the way they walk about their women? I need to stay with my own men lmao. My disagreements - African and Caribbean men do argue, idk what she’s talking about. - Black men are highly educated. Maybe not at the same rates as Afro/Carib men but people love to forget that they’re been here forever and have to deal with setbacks from slavery, segregation, etc. their grandparents were barred from reading and writing, our were being taught by white savior missionaries. Then our parents came here post civil rights/ Reagan/ etc with no battle wounds from what they went thru.

One addition-All Carribean and some African Black men also dealt with slavery. 90%of enslaved Africans went to the Caribbean and South America. They often forget us in the narrative of people who experienced the slavery that built the world.. sugar field slavery.

I think the answer might be simpler, so most immigrants come from middle to upper class families. Although in terms of net worth it may mean very different things in different countries. In terms of the general values and lessons taught in these families they are quite similar across countries and races. So to summarize their are more similarity across class than any other board category. This allows Immigrant black men to be more appealing to higher class afr am women

🐠 need your take on this: I found a perfect role at a company that I previously interned at 3.5 years ago. However my manager and lead analyst at the time really hated me, and I didn’t get a FT offer. The role im looking at now is for a different department but at the same HQ campus as my previous team. I’m currently at a key competitor, and confident I could land an interview. How would you try to successfully get the role? Impossible? Burnt bridge?

When applying for a new role, how do your companies “level out” the difference in years of working at a competitor vs climbing up the ranks? Are all years of consulting experience seen as “equal”?
