20 Totally Relatable #BlackWomenAtWork Tweets

Earlier this week, I logged into the company’s Twitter account to see madness on our timeline. Apparently, a Fox News anchor and the White House spokesman made some disparaging remarks about congresswoman Maxine Waters, and a reporter by the name of April Ryan.

The end result was an online protest where Black women tweeted under the hashtag #BlackWomenAtWork. I re-posted many of the tweets via the company account, and added our own voice to the clamour. I then compiled a list of the 20 most relatable posts.

Whether you’re a White woman, Black man, or an immigrant, these are scenarios we can all relate to as fellow second-class citizens and residents around the world.

Enjoy!

1. Where’s the Guy Who Wrote the Code?

20. Kiss A$$ – Or Get Out

What are some of the discriminating experiences you have witnessed or suffered in the workplace? It doesn’t matter what colour, creed, or gender we are – we’ve all had them. How did you respond? And what advice do you have for others going through the same experience.

PS: After completing this list, I noticed one hell of a coincidence. Just before the madness started on Twitter, here is the social media post Alexis Chateau PR sent out for the day. The tweet was scheduled a month ago, so this is beyond funny to me. You might as well call me Miss Cleo!
