More noble natives stolen by evil whites and sold into slavery, under which they struggled mightily, educating themselves to speak the King's English, perform classical music and song, conduct themselves with dignity at all times and then find freedom thanks in no part to the Emancipation Proclamation. No thanks--revisionist history and bald-faced fantasy are not my things...

Kunta Kinte was captured by black slavers in the show


slaves would have been forced to speak King's English

perform classical music and song-ummm what?

conducted themselves with dignity-well sure, seems to be an important lesson for people to learn, you know that these people who were slaves were actually PEOPLE with dignity and such, sorry if you view that as fantasy

find freedom thanks in no part to the Emancipation Proclamation-well the Civil war did play a prominent part of the mini series

TL;DR? You are wrong on all accounts

I've worked for a very large engineering company, a very small engineering company and then a moderately sized engineering company. Now I own my own company

As I progressed through my career the workforce became much more diverse. the large company was mostly white males, though that was more than likely because the office was located in an area that was very predominantly white. The other companies had Asians, Indians, Pakistanis, Women, Blacks, Hispanics, Eygptians, etc. in total approximately equal to the white male engineering group. Women and minorities held many of the mid to upper level positions, some were quite good, some were horrendous-both in person to person management skills and in technical skills.

The one universal truth was that each person brought to the table their own skills and weaknesses. There was a woman I worked with who was very very technically skilled, possessed a thorough understanding of her own specialty but also an ability and interest in understanding the functions of areas that were not her specialty. She was however a horrible "people" person, lacked empathy skills, was belligerent, bullying etc. That seems to have come from her growing up in a rougher lower class neighborhood.
There is a woman I work with now who struggles with the technical aspects but is very skilled a interpersonal skills, she is a natural sales person. She is interested in the profession she works in and utilizes her skills accordingly. What she lacks in technical skills she makes up for in enthusiasm and confidence. Part of her lack of skills comes from inexperience-she is improving in her technical abilities due to being closely mentored-i.e. using her interpersonal skills to develop technical skills.
So again, it comes down to the individual.
