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

BLM is not a discussion/opinion it is a fact and should be supported by all people in this planet.

hey all, i’m 3 years into my career. some decent work produced, some awards (mostly student). after getting laid off last fall and many many applications and emails sent, I’ve decided to spend time and money on a creative PR stunt to get my dream agencies’ attention. I’ve decided I don’t want to settle any longer, and I’m ready to make the jump to the elite. so people that have made it to their dream agencies: when did it happen for you, what made it happen, and was it everything you hoped for?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left).

I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
