A teammate of mine made a racist post on Instagram. 

The post was extremely insensitive and disrespectful to black women, but when it was brought to our team’s attention, we had a team meeting with an empty apology from the person who posted it. 

Ever since that team meeting, I have felt uncomfortable around that person and I have viewed them completely differently. 

I am disappointed that no further actions were taken. 

How can we say “We Are”, but turn around and give racist people a slap on the wrist for their actions, who act completely against the history of the saying?
