White neighbor, in conversation. I felt this person was implying that the black girl wasn’t qualified, or that she only got it out of affirmative action. Why not just say “I was fully qualified, but they gave the job to someone else”? I’m a person of color and I wonder if people think that about me. Made me sad. (via microaggressions)
I’ve had this conversation over and over with white men, and it’s always a black woman. Always. The white guy always says she wasn’t as qualified. I have to say,
“Did you see her resume? And how do you even know she got the job anyway? Were you stalking her?”
These mysterious unqualified black women running around taking the white man’s job don’t exist.
