    Yes, Workplace has always been more unequal for Black women in many companies. We all know that in media industry or in TV industry people usually prefer white women because of which black women don’t get a chance to have an opportunity. In companies their are employees who bully black women face and comparing her all the time with white women which is wrong because of bullying the women may get suffer from mental health which is very harmful for her. People need to understand that they should not make comparison between white and black women instead of that they need to treat both of them equally by giving support and encouragement for her talent rather than judging her all the time. According to survey more than 24,000 employees are suffering from unequal treatment at workplace because of comparison between white and black women. We all know that stereotyping plays a major role in our society to make a person feel more unequal at workplace. People usually make constant stereotype against black women due to which that women will obviously feel uncomfortable and it may loose her confidence towards her project because of which it leads to bad impression towards her boss. They need to prove herself over again and again to get an opportunity. There are many black women who had achieve success by breaking all the stereotypes like Viola Davis, Jada Pinkett Smith and more. The only thing is stop making comparison and stereotyping between different races, we all need to see talent and confidence instead of such kind of things. Companies and people should treat black women equally with respect. And they need to get equal opportunities with equal pay for equal work. Black women need to fight back for their equal place and they shouldn’t think of colour is even being matters for herself also. Instead they need to focus on their talent and believe in herself by working hard towards her career goals.

    Yes, black women have face biasness at the workplace they have to face discrimination for getting hired but this is very wrong thinking that just because of their black skin we are not allowing them to do any work with us. they have to receive less income than other and white people behave rudely with them and change their articles and tries to help them. they cannot get a chance to be part of the entertainment industry or get a role in movies or commercials just because they are black. This racist behavior is going on for decades now which is not accepted. Small children to adult to old black people have to face this in society so the government needs to address this that they are also human beings we cannot just be unkind to them. people do vulgar comments on their social handles if they are any model and actor these effects their image even when any sports player, they are always made fun of by calling them gorilla and crow face what is this attitude what is wrong with them are they not talented or they have not blessed with anything less than which whites are blessed with. We should stop this company should hire them seeing their talent and skills not their complexion or criticize for not doing work at time stop this biasness include them in society every stand with them black stop this biased behavior whenever it happens Infront of you. We all are humans so we don’t forget this. #black lives matter.

    Yes, it’s true because there is a wrong belief that women who have fair skin are more beautiful as compared to women who have other shades. It’s not important how skilled you are but if your looks are not up to the wrong parameters set by society then you are not eligible. This problem exists not only at the workplace but in schools, colleges, with children, adults and everyone. It’s unkind and unfair to judge people based on their skin colour. It leaves a scar on their mind, soul forever. People who tease them are sick to think that this is a righteous way to treat them. Every woman needs to be respected and should be judged over her talent, skills and not on colour. Physical appearance is not valued in the long run but behaviour, skillfulness is what matters and stay forever.
