Why (in the US anyway) is it offensive to ask a POC where they’re from ?

while TFA is interesting and has some valid points, it elides the massive POC influencer communities. Which is a shame, because I think a lot of the author's points--how IRL affinity groups tend to gather onlineas well, or how one's group and choices can limit one's means of employment, etc--apply to POC communities as well. Using POC took me ages as well, embertine, for the same reason, although it is more widely used in the UK now. We generally say black or Asian, as per our census denominations. But one pays attention to ensure one doesn’t use an offensive word unintentionally especially outside your own country. Cumbersquatch genuinely didn’t mean to be ... Oh, I absolutely think this might offend and cause some people unease. Race/slavery will always be a sore point from the get-go, that's its default state, but drawing comparisons from real-life historical wrongdoings and comparing it to fictional struggles will always leave a sour taste in people's mouths, especially if it's conveyed wrong or incorrectly. Edward Rogers personally called 3 different times over 2 months to get Kenny Williams to put a POC in a position no POC has ever been before. Not because the color of his skin, because he knew Williams deserved it. Which is the way it should be and how Masai got his job. On Twitter they're running this pic next to one of her in a Marine uniform. They're eating it up. ... they glom onto right-wing POC as a way to say, "See, we're not racist!" ... Hope it's not offensive in any way to anyone here. Reply to this post. Back to top Alert abuse Link here Permalink. Response to OneGrassRoot ... Stop gaslighting POC. ... Anyway, Ed Rogers is a walking red flag for racism. To deny this is to live outside reality. ... and don't like it when they're not fangirled and fanboyed over in the same way their subordinates are. That's not to say it's not potentially racially motivated too in this case, but I don't believe it to be the sole reason ... Best post so far. The majority of commenters on here are former high school debaters, who think they’re way smarter than anyone else (or, alternatively, are libertarians), and are looking for any excuse to spout political (and often misogynistic–this topic is a two-fer) malarkey under the guise of being professionals on the topic. Mulan (2020) is an astonishing movie. Somehow, it has accomplished the rare feat of pissing off both Western and Eastern audiences for different reasons. In the West, nostalgic fans of the 1998… Majorities of Latinos say discrimination is worse and getting ahead is harder for Hispanics with darker skin, but about 80 percent see themselves as having lighter skin, a Pew Research Center poll found. Latinos responding to the Pew survey released Thursday said skin color affects their lives, with 62 percent saying having darker skin hurts Hispanics’ ability to get ahead at least a little. "[R32] I’m Nepali so try again." And your voice, your concerns are being ignored because the total emphasis in the US is on blacks. Period. I'm of Asian descent, and the anti-Asian hate speech and crimes were reported for a couple of weeks, then disappeared, even though they still occur.

I’ve been watching this YouTube channel of a white guy who visits countries that are predominantly not white. He constantly gets asked where he’s from or if he’s American , and every time he kindly/patiently replies that he’s actually from South Africa. But in the US , it’s considered racist or offensive to assume a person of color is not born in the US.
Granted I’m not claiming that everyone thinks it’s offensive but it seems like it’s common and common enough that I would never ask someone where they’re from.

2021.12.06 23:08 Brentoda Help, multiple HDD's and multiple power supplies replaced... still can't get my HDD to spin.

I just bought an EVGA supernova 750 gt and a new wd black 1tb 7200 rpm internal HDD. I am connecting the power supply to the HDD and the motherboard to the HDD. Nothing is working. Disc still isn't spinning. The last wd black hard drive I bought fried on my old power supply so I replaced them both.
Is there a specific spot on the power supply that it needs to connect to? I have SATA 1, SATA 2, and PERIF.
Thanks in advance!

2021.12.06 23:08 Extension-Travel9544 I wish there was a way to know if you're a good or a bad person

I reckon it's too vague, but I don't just mean good and bad like black and white. A little bit of both too. But I just wish there was a surefire way of knowing what to do in which situation and getting it right at least 80% of the time. I don't know if I'm a bad person, I never deliberately hurt anyone but I sometimes (a lot of times) do bad things and it makes me wonder if I'm a bad person after all. But I wish there was a way of knowing, and stopping yourself from becoming worse.

2021.12.06 23:08 unethreal [PC][2005-2015] A multiplayer mining game where you dig in the ground, collect minerals, and fly around using a jetpack.

I'm pretty sure it was a (flash?) browser game with several different multiplayer, player-opened world. I can't remember what character you would play as, but iirc I think it was just one default character and you could wear stuff to accessorize. You could equip jetpacks to travel around the map, and you had to dig into the ground to look for resources and different types of gems. You could make different types of pickaxes based off the ores you got, and most people made their houses underground. It used to be super busy and it was often hard to find a world that hadn't been completely stripped of ores and loot. I also remember that in some maps, it would rain acid above ground and it would hurt you. It was a 2-D game.

2021.12.06 23:08 Limp-Escape-2640 Advice Please: Moving From Ops Analyst at Big 4 to Equity Research

Hi guys!
I’m currently 6 months in as an Operations Analyst at a Big 4 Investment Banking firm.
A little recap about the position: pay is shit compared to Front Office, hours are terrible, little to no respect, and barely see any career trajectory, mental health is at an all time low.
I got an offer at a smaller wealth management firm to do equity research for a 30% pay increase. My family keeps telling me to wait out a year at a job that I am quite miserable at because a better job opportunity will come with better pay. My dad keeps telling me to stay a year to build my resume here.
Should I take the big paycheck at a firm that will respect me more, give me better hours, pay for my CFA, and give me the opportunity to become a partner 10+ years down the line or just stick it out at Morgan Stanley cause it’ll look better that I stayed for a year?
(Also want to mention that I will be moving across states for the new job.)
