That's a problem with him hiring from the private sector. I don't think Tillerson was qualified enough on the security front. But otherwise a strong choice

A senior manager sent out an email to all of PwC about not being promoted. Blamed being black and not being born in the USA for it. However promotion is never guaranteed and becomes increasingly difficult the higher you go. Yet everyone wants to talk about race and inequality because this person was black. Seriously tired of the gymnastics people do to somehow relate it to color, instead of other factors.
