I am! Let’s talk about it! 1. I’ll never read White Fragility 2. BIPOC folks are the only people note getting paid about THEIR lived experience 3. As a BIPIC DEI Professional that has been in very white spaces I’ve had way too many experiences where the voices of white people speaking about the woes of BIPOC have been amplified over the actual people being oppressed

Do you have any suggested reading for white allies you could share?

“Diversity” has become code, it seems, which allows white people (like me) to avoid talking about (and taking action to counteract) the uncomfortable truth at the core of the matter: white supremacy is embedded in all of our systems. By systems, I mean processes, habits, beliefs, and way of working - in general. It’s not necessarily anything that any one person does (although it very often is), it’s just the way things are. We have the tools to run audits and get to the center of the problem if we wish to do so in our workplaces. The investigative question to explore is: Why don’t we use them?

To me it’s the same thing. I recently went to play golf for the first time in my life, I was the only woman in the group, and I could see how people were building relationship leading to multimillion deals right there. It’s all about inner circles and old money...

I’m absolutely floored how white people make money on racism issue, as if we didn’t make enough through the past 500 years

Of course not, she is igniting people with a tolerable amount of guilt, give them verdict “You have white fragility” and a sentence “Live with it”. Which effectively a) does nothing to improve the actual situation with racism b) make white people even more defensive and alienated cause that is what guilt does, instead of making them constructive

White privilege on display yet again. Black professionals talk about white behavior - they're called radical and angry, categorized as "not a good culture fit", and dismissed as "playing the race card". A white woman talks about and critiques white behavior and she becomes a millionaire.

Was gifted White Fragility and promptly donated it to my building library. I’m Black- I don’t need to read about that. My lived experiences are enough.

Hello! Okay, so in the workplace when coworkers ask about holidays everyone always mentions their family - husband, wife, kids. I always feel so uncomfortable when they assume I have a boyfriend/husband when I have a female partner but I feel like correcting them or just saying my partner will get me judged. Do you think the workplace just isn’t too accepting of sexual orientation for always assume the gender roles or am I just completely overthinking this?

Here’s an idea for all firms posturing about diversity: may pay numbers transparent with demographic data included. So white male Managers at PwC make $xx, white women make $yy, black women make $zz.
