After having on steady repeat I gotta give credit. She might be the muse of our generation. Relationships she's been in with rappers have spawned some of their best commercial work.

White privilege consistently ignores intersectionality but consistently asks us to be allies to reinforce their power structure. Why we keep falling for the okie doke? I haven't the foggiest.

Notice I said world. This isn't just a US problem. But why would I expect a Trump supporter to read or understand global politics?

The docs are a microcosm of the world we live in. Charismatic, unqualified leader sells a populist dream to a carefully curated base. Once fully bought into the dream they realize not all the details were carefully considered. Then buyers' remorse sets in.

I'm MVP gold, confirmed ticket, checked in on time, and my first class seat on the last flight out was given away. Gate agents were downright rude & basically said 🤷🏻‍♂️ that's how you treat loyal customers?

6 engineers, 3 product managers, 2 designers, 1 marketer all leveled up in title too. Now they're in a position to prep and hire folks that look like them. They can change this toxic tech culture from the inside.

Another one of my colleagues got hired from a personal referral. That's 14 black folks(8 women, 6 men)who have doubled or tripled their compensation for a total of $3.85 million. Don't believe these companies when they say hiring diverse candidates is hard

The fact that Tesla's stock can decline because Elon Musk smoked weed on camera is hilarious, especially when a good chunk of Silicon Valley CEOs were at Burning Man. We're also not counting the known snowbird CEOs and those who microdose stimulants. Y'all need to smoke and chill

What's wild is that the programs black folks design/run are more effective than companies with huge budgets. One year I placed more black engineers at companies by myself than FB and Google combined.
