Even after 24-years, white supremacy is still thriving in the country, and tweeps' experiences prove this.
Shay Stewart-Bouley is the executive director of Community Change Inc, but she often gets over looked by people because they just assume the 65-year-old white female office manager was in charge.
Her story inspired Chuck Modi to step up and talk about how he was treated superior just because he's a white man.
"When I was 35, my boss was a 55 yo Black woman w/PhD. I had a B.A. She was Director. I was Assoc. Director. We both dressed professional. Multiple times we walked into meetings & person turned to me as if I was Director. Being a white man was worth more than 20 yrs exp & a PhD.", he captioned his post.
Tweeps praised Modi for his honesty, adding he could " sleeps peacefully at night."
But, he was not the only one who could relate to Stewart-Bouley's story, another woman, who's the CEO of a non-profit organisation, recalled having a similar experience with white supremacy in the corporate world.
