Centuries of being beaten down, mocked, ridiculed, attacked & even murdered have scared my fellow persons of color into silence. And there are some people of color who are drunk with their own perceived success, who have been accepted & allowed to prosper by the powerful #statusquo. As a consequence, they remain silent in exchange for approval & financial rewards, acceptance into exclusive white circles of social & economic power, these are equality’s greatest nemesis in the current century; they naively mock today’s #CivilRights advocates as misguided, laughing as if we are on some quixotic quest.
Next time your managers are gathered together, take a good look at them. Chances are, they are male & white. You, the person of color, you the woman, are likely more talented & smarter. But you're staring at the statusquo that has controlled the globe for the past 600 years. These guys love your silence, your fear, your acceptance of their discrimination.
It is #TimeForChange. For you, for America.
