Then we get to this mofo. He looked me up and down, said hey, then turned back to his computer. Ugh.

YET when the supervisor introduced him to the other white and Asian interns, he talked to them for a good...10 minutes. Bitch!


It's fine working with the white people. I can't stand the other black person though!

He was not jealous.

He was probably just concerned that you would see him has being your work buddy for the simple fact that he's black. You know, go to lunch together, gossip together, share secrets and the like.

I've seen this happen too many times.

My corporate motto has always been, don't assume that somebody has your back just because they're black.

In the corporate world it is literally every man for himself.

I'm not convinced. There are plenty of other ways to create the appropriate work boundaries. He probably just enjoys being the only black person there so he can continue his coon shuffle. Oh well.

I don't talk to him and he doesn't talk to me, so it really makes no difference.

I am the only black manager in my department - can't say I enjoy it...I definitely wish there was more diversity.

I am still offended by that expression. Before I came into this thread I scrolled over this topic.  Had no clue what it meant. I was so shocked to realize what it referred to.

A fly is a gross disgusting thing. And in the milk? Even more disgusting.
