Meanwhile Black tech managers and leaders like me sitting at home twiddling our thumbs and trying to launch our own startups with “sweat equity" and no access to capital because we’re not a good “culture fit” and don’t have friends and family willing to risk hundreds of thousands of dollars on our “crazy" ideas.

So folks like me who trained at the highest levels to lead and develop ethical AI just have to sit on sidelines and watch while a bunch of white 20-something males (and a few token others) train digital machines to be just as ignorant, uninformed, and/or racist as they are.

What can I do? After 20 years, not much, apparently.
