“Where are you from?......but where are you really from?”

Common from some folks who want to probe and figure out my heritage without making it awkward. Sometimes I often say “You got me there...I’m from the hood part of NYC” for jokes. #Dale

Gate agent (not always, but quite often) or other passengers making sure I know that they are only pre-boarding. Uhhh, yeah...I know! That’s why I’m in line 🤦🏻‍♂️ always funny seeing people’s reaction to a Latino with status. I usually travel on Sunday’s so I’m not dressed up, but still

Clients making far too many references to differentiating US culture assuming I came from outside the US recently because I look “ethnic”.

As a technical point on the protests. Whose responsibility is it to shut down the protests? The law not to protest outside a judges house is federal. So the FBI? Should they be getting more scrutiny for not acting since they’re (supposedly) not a political arm of the government? But riot/protest control is not really their remit. They would enlist local PD to enforce? Similarly, if the locals said enough of this, is the applicable local/state law to act blocking a street? Not having a permit?

How do you guys psychologically handle slow periods? I'm in capital markets so the ups and downs are quite extreme. I was in tears a month ago because I couldn't handle giving up every evening and every weekend for two or three months straight; now I have a couple of hours of work a day I'm dragging out. My colleagues tell me to ask for work and make people know I'm available but also to chill out because I should know there's another cycle of endless work coming up, but I find it so difficult!
