If you are a WoC and someone you supervised harmed someone but you chose to do nothing because you reasoned it was better to save your ass as a “minority role model,” you’re disgusting.

Anyone else uncomfortable with being EXTRA harsh on someone for doing a bad thing because they shouldn’t have JUST because they were a WOC? Sorry I just don’t buy the logic. Bad is bad is bad.

Maybe OP was hoping the offending WOC would read this thread and wake up?

@CD no I entirely agree. I bring it up because this individual said they had to protect themselves as the only WoC senior creative. Like that’s how they reasons taking no action because god forbid their junior’s behavior reflect poorly on them

Are you a minority? I don’t know the severity of this case or details but POCs in this industry don’t get the luxury of mistakes and have an entire set of stressors and pressure as they move into senior level positions because it so rarely happens. Not excusing it by any means but I get it. Real talk, are you being harder on this WOC than you would a white dude who was just a bad manager and bungled the situation? Because the woke POC should “know better?” And have you told them how you feel about this? Based on your reaction I think you should definitely have a conversation if you haven’t already, at the very least it may be a teachable moment for them. Being a leader/manager is a learned skill just like everything else.

Everyone has an instinct to protect themselves. Not knowing any details of who did what to whom...I just hope there’s justice for any victim/s in this scenario. Perhaps that’s where OP can constructively use his/her energy.

Huh... well that's funny... I'm a WoC... and somebody I was supervising harmed someone... and I chose to remain......... hey, wait a second!!!
