I never realized how many people dislike me simply because of my skin color until I started using FB 🤷🏻‍♀️

@M1, step 1 is having a diverse group of friends. Step 2 is having a relationship with them that allows them to vent about racial load and the implications of white privilege, or just in general, cultural differences. In the process of Step 2, you'll likely hear the "hate" OP was talking about--constant frustration about being considered "other" with too few people acknowledging the impacts (and living an otherwise carefree life).

Honestly it is crazy the double standard white people face. My black friend can say "I don't like white doctors because they over prescribe medications" but if I were to say that about all black doctors then I would be branded a racist. I'm not saying I've ever faced real discrimination in my life, because I haven't, and I do know that minorities sometimes still do face it in 2017. But it's also BS how other races can talk shit about white people and it's completely socially acceptable

Homely, you will kill yourselves if you take FB to heart! People are the most shallowest here! And I bet you they turn 180 in real life! Know you are awesome because we all have our stories! And be glad that you are so much better off than most people on this planet

Wait so no one has asked what color yet? Because I haven't seen any discrimination to any group on FB and I'm curious

....is it white people? Are you the ones everyone hates? Is that even a thing? I've never met someone in consulting who's actually a racist. Sometimes annoyed by cultural differences when it comes to foreign employees, but not in a "my race is better than yours" way

It's wrong that people of color face racial profiling, assumptions that they're lazy etc, and having tie work harder. I agree with you and I'm fighting to change that, too. But for you to be against all those things and at the same time condoning racist generalizations of white people is just hypocritical. And btw people saying things like all white people are bad doctors aren't expressing frustration with white supremacy; they're just being racists.

So if my social circle doesn't include people who dislike me because of my skin color then it's homogeneous? I'm strangely ok with that.

I have seen some "dog whistle racist" posts and they were all from Deloitte. KPMG/EY seems to be the most chill here by far. PwC is ok but S& borders on Deloitte levels of douchebaggery. That is all.
