I didn’t start a business to become a civil rights advocate, but this shit really is out of each and investors are idiots. I’m shutting down. I can’t change my sex or my color. I am not ok watching people with sub par plans get funded for being white.


    • Me too. Don’t let the assholes here try to convince you that race/gender has nothing to do with it.

      Stay strong! You’ll have to work twice as hard, but if you can prove people wrong and be a part of shifting the culture our society will be better for it

  • Maybe you are only relying on plans instead of showing a product. Or maybe, just maybe, your product is bad and you rationalize it this way. You think life is fair? Tell it to this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jhcxOhIMAQ

    Not convinced? Tell it to people who don’t live in a developed world country. You cry white privilege, but you don’t know HOW GOOD you have it.

    Personally, I think that your complain is rationalized BS. If you have that good of a product (not a plan, any idiot can make one // on a side note, any idiot can make a product, but not necessarily a good one), you should be able to raise money. Perhaps, instead of blaming VCs or other investors and looking outwards for the problem, you should look inwards.

    • Or maybe silicon valley isn’t a goddamned meritocracy, and VCs just want to fund younger versions of themselves.

      • Let’s see your product then… I’m sure you wont post it, relying on some bs excuse about your privacy. If you suck, you suck. No matter if you are black or white, male or female. Sucking is not exclusive to color/sex.

        Hustle and stop complaining, that attitude is also why you won’t get funded. Even if you don’t say it explicitly, you are permeated with an aura of being defensive and feeling entitled that you should get funded because you are a woman. Don’t take it on others, playing the blame game on SV or on “white males”.

        Sincerely,

        Someone from a third world country, who does the its best with what it’s at hand and is repelled by people with victim mentality.

          • So, being from an other country makes it impossible to travel there? Is it too far fetched that someone else besides what you call a “local” has traveled and done business in SV? Get your head out of your ass. You DESERVE not getting funded.

            • No. Traveling to and being of are two different experiences. If they weren’t, this country wouldn’t have so many successful immigrants. Pull your head out of your ass. Whoever funds you, hope they know they are finding someone who won’t be able to serve the American people because we see how they really feel about the plight of minorities and women.

              • People with a victim complex such as yourself, need to look inwards, not blame others. I recommend you profesional counseling, all the best.

  • How many polished products demos you had though? Read some stories about Maxis – the original Sim City. The guy took it to 10 publishers and the last one signed him on. The deals are atrocious when youre in a vulnerable position. Sounds like your problem is not being not white, its being poor.
