A garage for my house. But it wasn’t just any garage. It was a garage big enough for a boat. A big boat. I don’t have a boat. (Dumb decisions from my 30s).

I bought me and my wife a dinner that set us back about $950 for the two of us. It was extravagant and excessive, and also the only time I've splurged on anything beyond my car.

Us white people need to put ourselves in colored people’s shoes. How would we feel working in a predominantly “colored” work environment where everyone wants us to act “colored” (whether Black, Asian, Latinx)? How comfortable are we going to be day by day when being yourselves mean no promotion and could get us fired? When our fate depends on another race who gives favoritism to their own race? Colored people are the most resilient people in corporate America. The true backbone of our success

Does your firm give out raises when you get promoted? Just found out mine only gives out raises as part of the annual appraisal process. So if you get promoted in Jan, you won’t get a raise until Oct.
