Yeah, I’ve learned a lot about “diversity” since moving here to Florida. I’ve seen so many diversity and minority disclaimers — yet look at the staff and it’s actually the opposite. Anytime I hear someone using diversity I roll my eyes. It’s just a crock of doo!
I’m sorry you have had the experience. I have a few similar to yours, but more reverse racism — where Black people want me to work for free or give deep discounts, but if a White person offers them the same thing for more, they believe it’s better. They get ripped off, then they want to come back to Blackitty Black to clean up there messes.
It’s so hard for us small minority business owners trying to work. Institutional racism is real — it runs long and deep — and there is no end in sight. Colleges are the worst. Again, looking at upper level management tells the story. I don’t miss my days working in college settings. WE are not appreciated and taken for granted.
