A Reckoning at Bon Appetit

This episode of The Sporkful is the story of persistent racism at Bon Appetit at the highest level. The further I got into the episode, the angrier I got. Dealing with jerks being jerks is one thing, unfortunately it is something that minorities, LGBT and women deal with all the time. However, when you are talking about pay you are affecting a person's livelyhood. It is a concrete example of lowering the value of someone based on their color not on their performance. No one's value should be based on their race, ethnicity, sex, or sexual preference. Unfortunately I suspect Bon Appetit is just an example of a larger issue.
