I don’t feel bad at all for people getting fired for making reckless remarks on their social media platforms about BLM. You have a choice to get on the right side of history, make sure you choose wisely.

I think it’s more an issue of “say the right thing only, or else you’ll be fired/ canceled/ harassed”. There is no room for discourse. It’s alarming.

Youre post makes so many assumptions about me. I follow plenty of black people and have read articles and books. Im not a republican. Also, I don’t advocate the “bootstrap” idea. I just think its definitely within peoples control whether they choose to abandon their children and that black leaders could address this issue within the community. Actual leaders not poverty pimps.

Not all people are either black or white. Don’t be so narrow minded. Certain races mainly got discriminated by black people to begin with and it’s sad many don’t understand.

Hey and you’re entitled to your opinion. We’ll never see eye to eye and that’s cool with me. My little sister and I also got free meals until we graduated high school.
And yes the Black population in general need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Do you know how many Black households are single parent households? How many of them are on welfare. Everyone in america has access to free education and it’s wild to me that people don’t take advantage of that. I grew up in a third world asian country where I’ve seen what living in poverty and living without privilege is like. The american dream is real if you work hard enough.
And lastly, I encourage you to not draw your own conclusions based on what you think people are thinking. You don’t know my experiences and why I think the way I do, so dont be a part of this cancel culture where if you’re not woke, you’re cancelled. That literally makes me want change even less and less.

I just don't say anything, and I plan on voting in November that will say enough

My partner is still out of work from being laid off due to COVID and made it to a final round interview that he thought went well , and got a denial email this morning. I was so excited to finally not feel so much financial pressure as his unemployment is stalled, but I just feel terrible, like this will never end and start to impact our relationship because he can’t pull his weight with the bills. Plus, I have a presentation today and just feel so distracted — an awful awful morning.

I have a ton of exhibit design experience (mostly museums, very interactive) and shifted this year to experiential design but laid off without cause after 6 months. Loved the work (and company) but am having a hard time getting another position in XM. My industry experience is short but activations I designed are deployed now. Positions I am finding are more 3D rendering production (I’m good but not expert) whereas I am more about concepts, pitches, design, oversight, copy. Advice, leads?
