      Pretty heartbreaking and very important. Too often it seems this position is being used to virtue signal the company is invested in dispelling racism but doesn't actually want to do the hard work or admit fault. I read White Fragility a few years ago and it really opened my mind to my own biases and the worlds, important stuff to consider and reflect on.

      Recently, over margaritas at a bar in Brooklyn, Sandra told me that “the foundation’s all-white executive leadership team” had hired her “to solve their racism problem.”

      I asked how that was going.

      “Not great,” she said. “The trouble is that they don’t actually want me to do my job.”
