I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB.

Hey there. Need some advice. Im a brown/black man. I’m staying with my girlfriends parents this week in a southern state. They are great people, Democrats and not a drop of racism in them. Last time I was here, her dad told me the guest room canopy bed was made by slaves (in a disappointing tone). At the time we were staying in my girlfriend’s old room so it didn’t matter. This time around we’re staying in the guest bedroom and I don’t feel right sleeping on the bed. What should I do?
