24. Even though it’s a dumb stereotype, you do feel some type of way about eating things like fried chicken or watermelon in the office.



This guy ran into my office with such enthusiasm to tell me that someone was selling whole watermelons for $5 in the parking lot. I told him no thank you, I don't eat watermelon. He had the nerve to ask me why. I said because I DON'T LIKE IT & closed my door. Dead I don't like/eat any type of melon.

Worked in this racist place months ago and all of the aforementioned applied. The worst were the few blacks that worked there. Self loathing uncle toms galore.

Oh my God number 7! I had to tell Ryan that I don't talk to him so that I'm able to like him. He thought I was joking.

This is why I'm glad I quit my job and went from being "the only one" to "one of many" in my workplace. Big smile

LOL @ people getting quiet when you walk into the break room/watercooler area. So true, except they start switching to different languages (Russian) at my workplace. I just walk in, get my stuff and leave, no one cares what you're talking about.

1. Their discussions about outsourcing sound pretty much like how they'd sound discussing aspects of their slavery master plan back then

I'll chime in with parallelisms and they'll agree until they notice I'm talking about slavery and then say that's not what we meant

Slavery was far worse no comparison just saying their mindset is pretty much the same

The worst is when you don't try to be all buddy buddy and shuck and jive for their approval. The best was when the owner secretly sent his friend to tell me how 'grateful I should be to work there'. This women knew nothing about me and had to nerve to tell me I should be grateful to be a part of that failing trashy place. I walked out one day before the holiday party. The next morning I woke up with a smile so grateful I did not have to attend the party.

It was my first experience ever working in a racist setting and hopefully my last.

Very true. There was this one black girl there that the whites pretended to like bc she licked their butts. A very insecure,deceitful girl. She did everything to tarnish my reputation and they LOVED playing us against each other. It was so sad.

theres a man that happens to be gay and feels like I'm automatically his sister girl, sister in the struggle

My breaking it down on while there are similarities, it is not the same is another topic 

Anyways so he is always trying out new found slang on me, sometimes in conference calls. If i know the slang and it's funny and fits the situation I'll abide it, if not I hit him with the "what do you mean by that", "where did you hear that from", "stop, that's innappropriate" (some reference to twerking)
