I can admit that I have experienced this before. I think it stems from insecurity linked to how "they" see and treat us. Instead of going against "them" or simply ignoring them as much as possible they flip it and compete against each other. The goal is to be seen as "other" and "special."  I just SMH because the issue isn't with us but with the environment that encourages and supports this behavior.Its amazing to me how often we are turned against one another. Some of us see if for what it is and don't feed into it and others fall for it. 

Thankfully though at my last position I had a partner that was down for the cause and she let me know that from jump.  We literally fist bumped on the first day lol.

black people are people...people are unpredictable and anything can happen.  These questions are so annoying, I'm like tired of these black people questions.

I don't think you can make wide sweeping assumptions

Especially over one or two incidents

I will share my experience. Ive worked in environments where blacks were the minority and stuck together and supported each other for the majority of my jobs with the exception of one job where I felt the blacks were super insecure and hostile.

Could be sexist, some Black women are territorial and don't like working with other black women.
If you're referring to a woman.

No girl. Lol. I'm just thinking over some past experience. My friend and I were discussing this the other night and my mom. I'm just wondering If this crabs in the barrel mentality is true or not?
