@MD1 do you mean white women are preferred to Asian men of the same job title/function?

likefunny

No for the most part I don’t feel that is the case, however I do feel cliques and the “in” crowd is a real thing whether that’s an acting factor I should hope not.

I do - I think they prefer a white woman to be honest. Especially in a company that has a lot of women, I think they give preference to white women just because it’s easier to get along with in the office.

Not exclusive to asian males. Asian women face this too

Seconded. I get called cold and intimidating for not wanting to drink bc red face and nausea and not sycophantically agreeing with every stereotype presented.

Nope. But i’m quite junior, so maybe that happens at the senior level 🤷🏻‍♂️
