The Washington Post, a company with 66.5% of people in leadership roles being white folks, has now used an entire article to offer perspective on the lack of Black zookeepers and the Internet responded in jest.
However, that did not stop the billionaire Jeffrey Bezos-owned leftist publication from running this broken route, as if zoo-keeping was a job people commonly dream of, like toddlers talking about what they’ll do five years from now in kindergarten during circle time.
Despite the fact that many people of all races don’t even know a single zookeeper, WaPo dove down the rabbit hole without an iota of self-awareness.
The Washington Post has a highly white staff and leadership, as stated on their own demographics report. All employment roles were predominantly white and male, with ‘Black or African American’ employees coming in second, ‘Asian’ coming in third, ‘Hispanic or Latino’ in fourth and Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander last. It is unclear whether WaPo took a look at their own demographics before deciding to publish their analysis of the racial breakdown of zookeeping.
Perspective: Zookeeping isn’t common in the Black community. This Black zookeeper wants to change that. https://t.co/c35REGD6JZ

Is there ANY area of life where you will not try to point out differences in order to divide us, group from group ?

Professional basketball isn’t common in the White community and I don’t care.
I really hate when people think we need certain representation in jobs. For the most part we pick our jobs and I don’t care what color people I’m working with as long as they are competent.

Uh, we’re really stretching the “everything is racist” narrative here. 🤦♂️

It’s not common in any community. When’s the last time you ran into a zookeeper at a party, tinder, store or anywhere?

Neither is it common in the Latino community. Screw this… I want my zoo too! And there better be lions! 😑 And we want a chupacabra too. I said what I said.

I’ll be honest, I’m whiter than mayonnaise in a Michigan winter and still don’t know a single zookeeper.
