I have had the pleasure of being mentored by another fellow female of color and I do a lot of work for her. While I’ve loved the amount of care and guidance and mentorship I’ve received from her, I’ve also felt like she kind of expects a lot personally from me. She wants us to click on a certain level that doesn’t feel organic sometimes. Sometimes her way of operating borders on intrusive and not professional. So maybe not directly on point to what you’re calling “hazing” but I feel you ha!

I’m a Hispanic male; I’ve worked under other Hispanic males, Hispanic females, and white males and white females. So far my favorite bosses are current boss, a white female, and my most former boss, a white male. My least favorite boss was the Hispanic female, who would constantly yell and freak out and (literally) tear up your work in front of you if she didn’t like it. I don’t think it was a matter of her hazing her own people, I think it was just her personality. She was a very vulgar and brutish person; however, I won’t tarnish her memory as she passed away a few months ago.

Maybe the see themselves in you and want you to be great. #toughlove
