A story: I was in the process of interviewing with a major company for a developer advocate position.
The director was very impressed with me.
Suddenly he went silent around the time a white woman on his team began smearing my reputation with the team because she was offended by how I speak about race, and because I asked her to not compare being a white Jewish woman to being a woman of color.
Never heard from them again. I had multiple friends on that team, many white women. They all went silent as well.
