If we invest in reparations for Black American Descendants of Slavery that will be the boldest step to repair the wealth divide!
The numbers showed that. 52% of white women voted Trump if I recall.
black women don't need to change. It looks like white women need to, according to the numbers.
Yeah, I couldn’t hear that
I couldn’t hear it.
(or the earlier stats)
@Audrey: As a white woman, I agree that white women need to be better allies. I looked up the stats and while 52% of white women said they voted for Trump, the voter data was actually 47%. “According to a later analysis that experts consider more reliable, a study published in August by the Pew Research Center, the percentage of white women who voted for Trump was actually 47%, compared to 45% for Clinton.” https://time.com/5422644/trump-white-women-2016/
If politicians listen to donors and corporations, this is all the more reason to close the wealth gap so women can start and fund more businesses—and donate to causes!
@Windy Borman, that means you still have a lot of work to do. What percentage of black women vote democratic in this last election? 90% if I'm not mistaken.
Do you see an opportunity to bring conversation into the workplace about status inequities and social justice?
Nnena.. i have been saying the EXACT same thing.. amy cooper.. covid... attention
(Especially when it’s not just the people who are negatively affected by the inequity in the conversation)
Black American Descendants of slavery are very underrepresented. How do we include them into the process of business ownership? Any advice?
Painkiller not vitamin! I love that!
Loving these medical metaphors
perfection, individualism, disconnect from community, lack of self-care all perpetuate white supremacy
Overconfidence is a result of having privilege, and it’s rewarded in SV and in our culture
How do you convince people who have been punished for speaking up to go big?
Reparations is the elephant in the room. How can we have massive system change without talking about Black American reparations? Wouldn't that be the most progressive way to address these issues?
Kimberly I would ask how do you make it safe and rewarding for us to speak up?
thanks. safety is key.
it's not just the big decision makers but the administrative assistants, eg, that are gate keepers
they meed to believe they are supposed to be different
This was so good I don’t want it to end. And everyone’s comments- so additive!
Thank you. Wonderful discussion.
Thank you so much! An hour went by fast!
fantastic conversations - thank you!
Thank you - so inspiring and motivating!
Thank you soooo much. So inspiring!
Ann, so amazing
What an amazing series.
Black American descendants, vote for your interest!! Voting is an exchange NOT a gift. Don't GIFT the Dems your vote ask for something.
Thank you so much!
Thank you Nnena and Courtney!!!!
