I'm Asian American and when people ask me where I'm from and I tell them (Boston), then they follow up with "But where are you ORIGINALLY from/REALLY from." Like they want me to say Japan or Korea or China or something, but dude I was born here and I've ever been to those places.

As a white lady raised in the nominal south (what the heck IS Austin Tx?), but living north and traveling south frequently, I sadly see that there is still a strong set of color, sex, and increasingly perceived national origin based hierarchies. You have to really break out hard on some other 'credential ' like frequent traveler or clearly have money or language and accent or some such, to 'break in line'. Yes. This sucks. Yes. This hurts. And yes I call people out on it. But EVERYONE has to refuse to play, for yourself AND others.

I saw the post from the black lady Doctor on the delta flight this morning. Who's even surprised that her flight crew dismissed her before hearing her out? Most of the FAs I see are the quickest to talk down to anyone who doesn't immediately send out "I fly all the time" vibes, which most often come from white guys in their perception. I've also seen some coworkers on the receiving end of blatant discrimination while on travel to the south.

With Women’s History Month here and International Women’s Day next week, I’m seeing a lot of content about gender equality in the workplace on LinkedIn. While I support anything that will further the message, it feels icky and downright insulting to see such content come from agencies that I know treat women horribly. I wish we could call them all out. Is anyone else offended by these performative messages?

Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗
