This month's book is Ben Horowitz's "The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers"
Next up...Jenny Odell's "How to Do Nothing", a concept that both of us could stand to learn from.
In this episode, we respond to the troubling observation...
I think my boss is a racist. He has said things like:
- "I can't hire someone the team won't be able to understand" about two different Indian candidates
- He won't send our sole black engineer to client sites because he says it'll make our clients uncomfortable
- He recently said that given two equal candidates, he'd pick the white one even if he were a little worse because he'd work harder and have a better culture fit
What should I do? I need this job.
Don't forget to read along with us; we discuss "The Hard Thing About Hard Things" by Ben Horowitz later this week.
