Painting With Broad Brushes
When reading about issues regarding women and racism in tech, I couldn’t help but feel a little frustrated. It seems many people are very content with prejudice against entire groups of people. How could you possibly say all men are sexist if you could never know all of them? Maybe most white men benefit from a system where minorities may not, but how dare we discount the experiences of individuals that may tell a contrary story. As much as we want the world to be black and white, it simply is not. The “us against them” mentality is toxic. If you think the solution to any of the world’s problems comes from vilifying whole groups of people, you should be ashamed.
