I worked for Apple starting June of 2013.
Apple paid very well.
I gained hella knowledge.
I am a muthafuckin Black techie till I die.
Apple had a great cafe.
Apple had a bomb ass gym for 6.00 a month.
I had good benefits.
I worked hard and moved up the ladder.
The customers tho….abusive as fuck.
Like, I don’t get anxiety attacks but I did there.
Then Apple implied a lot that I needed to hide who I was when it came to BLM.
Before you read this, please note that not everyone does these things or has selfish intentions. Some people are genuine. I know who they are. I know who my family is, and isn’t. I know that I have a lot of genuine and beautiful love around me in the spaces I spend time in. I don’t fault anyone for being intrigued or their admiration. This about folks being selfish and masking their selfish needs with the false idea of love. This about manipulators and vampires. People that suck the life out of you and compliment you while they do it. This is about the dehumanization of the people burning themselves out for their actual love for people. We show our love with our work.
