Anyone not looking forward to Black History Month? It’s has become so performative that I honestly ignore it. It’s been co-opted by corporations and everyone else to virtue signal and pay lip-service to the community. I celebrate my history and culture every day. I don’t need (or want) to hear a recycled NPR segment about King’s murder, read a New Yorker article re: “systemic racism is real, guys!” Or see an uninspired list of “Black Authors to Read.” This wasn’t Carter G.

I went to a mostly white school growing up and it was exhausting because people would always look for me to be the authority on all things black.

To be clear, I don’t hate the month. I’m just irritated with how superficial it has become. And I now side-eye any non-Black person or corporation,or institution that is overzealous about it.

I realise it's been 2 years of this pandemic, 2020 was a year of extra terror for Black people and Kamala is a disappointment to many... ...HOWEVER, Black history is literally being erased as we speak in these foolish CRT wars. Time to apply pressure to turn the performative into the productive.

I’ve felt the same way as both points above at some point but still look forward to it. Never fail to learn something new and/or find another Black business to support.

Hello Accountants, I have a question. I have enough credits for the CPA exam, but before I realized that I was aiming for a Master in Accounting and got accepted in my school 5 year program for that purpose. Is there any benefit of getting said master? Or should I focus on passing the CPA exam instead? I just finished my first tax internship and everybody said that the CPA was unavoidable but nobody talked about any benefit of getting a master whatsoever. What do you guys think?

It is common practice at my small firm by two main partners to fly through transactions for clients regardless of potential conflicts (for the company) or issues that may arise. It is often chaotic and has led to lawsuits being filed by investors against the clients. I know this is expected from time to time but I feel like I’m not getting the proper exposure to doing deals the right way. Would it be better at a larger firm or is this common anywhere? Mostly deal with microcap companies.
