Asians in Consulting

Many of you are not in favor of Yang but you don’t have to be. It was disgusting as I witnessed how he was blacked out and silenced by the media. To see an Asian man being treated that way which happens too often in a field that already leaves out Asians was doubly hurtful and infuriating and this confirms it. Background: Pekary below is former producer at MSNBC. Yang called them out for gross mistreatment of him during primaries. People called him whiner conspiracy theorist. They were wrong

And my sister thinks while they probably did not do that BECAUSE he is Asian, it was definitely possible to do so because silencing Asians like this won’t get backlash. We don’t do anything collectively to cause noise. And Yang was fundraising at 4-5th in the entire field of 23 seasoned politicians. Seriously he was a force to be reckoned with esp if they did not actively suppress like this. I hope Asians voice out collectively and more often too.

First one through the door always gets bloody. But the way is open now so maybe next time around it’ll be easier for us.

I don't agree with Yang's politics but it was painfully obvious that they shut him out. At one of the debates after Yang introduced himself, Buttigieg made a face like Yang was a weirdo and said something like "well that's new" before starting his own intro. If Yang was bIpOc the left would have been crying racism.

The DNC literally stole the nomination from Bernie and gave it to Hilary last time. This is politics.

Donna Brazil acknowledged she shared questions with HRC in advance of primary debate in 2016. Does that count as cheating and “stealing”? Was anything done to make any corrections?

This is nothing new and I was not shocked. Within America nothing is given and Yang/Yang supporters need to do more to provoke public actions. Look at BLM, it went from a fringe group to a mainstream movement. I wonder if other minorities and poorer socioeconomic groups also went that route to gain respect. We Asians already have a lot from an economic standpoint (generally speaking), maybe why politically we have not want a lot. But I think it's time to demand for greater recognitions. I don't know how that will happen, but the way to achieve that is by factual evidece and hold America to accountability.

Yeah. That sucked. There was plenty of evidence at the time, too. He’s made strides though. Hopefully him partnering with Biden and CNN doesn’t hurt his independent cred

I mean he also was a semi-advisor to trump/reps for the ubi-inspired relief package earlier this year, so he's still staying true to himself. Can't really see him on Fox News, and can't really see Fox News reaching out to him with any good opportunities either

OP - your sister said it very well. While being Asian may not be THE reason for Yang to be treated like he was, a black politician would definitely not be treated the same way, as we all have seen many times. But that’s only one perspective, there is something much deeper. MC1 mentioned Bernie’s nomination got stolen (in my opinion, twice). Don’t you think Yang is siding with the wrong group? The issue here is not Asian vs non Asian. It’s not even a racial thing. It is the most fundamental foundation of this country’s democracy.

Definitely true there is deeper issue however there is another factor to it as we agree. Considering how invisible Asians are in the media and politics, I don’t think it should even be ok for them to dare do this to him and yes AsAm groups should have made a massive coalition to make noise or should do that going forward. You don’t have to be his supporter to think this is unacceptable and he can be as flawed as he may be. This has much to do with representation issue. Let’s face it - a bland corporate elite Asian will never even be their nominee. Yang is a visionary who inspired a lot of people. This suppression is intertwined with many problems that exist and race is sadly something we cannot ignore in light of the fact that Asians are invisible and yet they had the audacity to do this

Is it a lateral move from Deloitte Consultant to PWC Senior Associate? For context, I was up for promo last year but it was rescinded due to covid. SC promotion is “all but guaranteed” this cycle 🙄. I know PWC has an extra level with the new SM role so not sure if I’d be lateraling to SA3 from C at D? It’s a 40% base comp increase but just curious what the outside perception is... currently 3YOE, top right scatterplot. I’m thinking I could make M in a year or so but is that like SC at D??

Hey gang looking for some advice. I currently earn ~110k and have 0 debt. I put away 13% of my post tax income into my 401k, and another 1k a month in my savings after all expenses paid, rent, utilities, groceries, eating out, etc... I’ve been wanting to buy a car (nothing crazy) max 20k with about 5-6k down. My estimated monthly would be 250-260 month + cost of insurance. Is this a reasonable purchase given my level of income and savings? I currently have an old car 100k+ miles
