Is anyone else scared of traveling once the pandemic is over? I am talking travelling to midwest/southern areas that are more homogeneous. You know, cause of the increased racism

I’m (chinese) in a midwest state and it’s been ok 🥺 especially if you stay in the city area where it’s the same level of liberal as the coasts

Im Chinese and live in Dallas, tx. Haven’t experienced racism during the pandemic, however people in small pass-through towns don’t wear masks.

Unless you’re going into really red areas, you’re fine. It really isn’t as if the coasts aren’t racist, they’re just better at hiding it. Honestly I’d probably take overt racism over the subtle bullshit I get all the time in NYC.

Yeah born and raised on Long Island so I feel that. Although the OC is also pretty bad in SoCal. The worst is the people who can’t possibly be racist cuz they vote dem. 🙄

Omfg. For real?!?! I have lived in Texas, Tennessee, and Illinois without problems. You're more likely be called a racial slur in NYC than in the states I mentioned. Any chance of a real physical altercation would more likely be escalated by me.

I faced far more animosity and snark in the New England for my Southern upbringing than for my Asian heritage during my entire life in Georgia. I have traveled through small towns and spent plenty of time with rural folks. I don’t align with them in many ways, but they have been some of the most respectful people I have ever met. At the risk of sounding like one of “those” guys — don’t be fooled by mass media. It’s seriously overblown.

Lol I don’t even bother going to those “flyover” Midwest states. But yeah pretty concerned about places like Australia & Europe. I’ve always liked my trips to Asia anyways, better food and adventures.

C1 if Trump’s presidency is any indication, being openly racist and open to conspiracy theories has been normalized.

Same. Canceled a trip to France due to Covid but scared to go once borders open up again.

Sorry to hear. I'd be scared as well 🤕

I just came back from a trip to gatlinburg, Atlanta, and my hometown in GA. The smaller towns are a bit more sketch as people are very outright Trump supporters and will look at you weird. Bigger southern cities are no issues at all. We didn’t experience any outright racism or anything but I will say we did stick out like sore thumbs.

I wouldn't travel there anyway, so no.

I’ve already started traveling

Haven't had much luck trying to get into a tech industry FP&A role. I was thinking of alternative pathways to get the role in the future and a means to broaden my job search: A) take a non-FP&A role at a tech company (accounting or internal audit position) B) take a FP&A role in a non-tech company (retail, O&G etc) Which one is a better method?

Team Financial Planning Specialist or no? My team is growing more and more to specializations with investment products. (Insurance, alts, ESG) I’ve been wondering if the Financial Planning role could also be a specialist in our client experience. We have two competing ideas; A financial planning specialist would be able to develop intimate familiarity with the planning software, processes, and human nuances. But would a newclient feel 'bait&switched’ to be handed off for this important process?
