Week 3: August 2 to August 9

Question of the week

Pretend You’re an NBA player...

(A) Would you stand for the national anthem or kneel?
(B) How would you feel about your other players standing or kneeling?

As a reminder our goal on this bowl is to fully understand other people’s POV and to share your POV effectively so it’s fully understood. So that empathy can happen...not necessarily to change someone else’s mind. This may or may not happen.

What does standing do? Lmao


A) Stand, it wouldn't even be a question
B) it depends, if they are doing it for a reason and do more off the court, no issue. If they are kneeling without reason or lack any other action (considering the capital they have dispensable to drive actions) then I would have issues.


I take actions which lead to results. Kneeling doesn’t lead to results.


A) Kneel for sure.
B) Idc how another person lives their life.


I would definitely kneel. It’s bringing awareness to the extreme injustices happening in this country to black people. I don’t think it’s disrespect at all

I would respect their choice to stand. Kneeling is acknowledging racial injustice, perhaps they don’t care about it. Some people don’t.

A - Yes
B - I would be happy that people are finally coming forward to take action and acknowledge that accountability needs to be made for injustice.

Tonight my wife threw water at me, called me a loser (second time this week but who’s counting) and told me she didn’t wanna be with me. All because while she was out I walked on the treadmill and “omitted” telling her that when she came home. Wasn’t trying to hide it, just didn’t think being on a treadmill for 5 min was worthy of being brought up in convo.

Am I the asshole here? I don’t think I did anything wrong and refuse to start giving my wife status updates while she’s out.

Additional Posts in The Safe Zone (for All) to talk Race

I’m convinced that the reason some of these firms are so prestigious is because they have intentionally exclusionary recruitment practices. I used to believe that you had to already be rich to get hired at MBB. Now being on the other side of the recruitment process , I really do feel that it rings true. I hate the way we evaluate candidates and decide on who is “high priority” during coffee chats.

From the Moderator:

How do we feel about Joe Biden:

(A) Declaring before hand that his VP would be a woman
(B) Selecting a black woman

Should organizations take similar action? For example declaring that their next CEO will be a woman.

All views welcome

Week 2: Jul 26 to Aug 2

1. Do you personally believe there is a systemic racism problem?

2a. If yes, share with others why you believe so

2b. If no, share why you believe so.

Question was posed by a member of the group.

All remember that the goal of this group:
- is to help others understand YOU
- to help YOU understand OTHERS.
- our highest goal is full understanding of the each other leading to empathy

It’s unlikely that you would change another’s mind via this forum


I created this group because: there are both black and white people afraid to say what they really think. I see this as a problem because unless we can say what we truly feel we can’t identify differences and come to genuine solutions.

Suggested Format is we will deal with 1 question or topic per week. The question will be from participants. I will try to simply be a host, moderator and translator. We will lay out some ground rules to make it safe for all. I will enforce these.


From the moderator, for discussion.

Should white males be concerned that current focus on diversity will lead to negative results

If Yes, why and under what conditions
If No, why not?
