Good read. Similar to this RBF scrutiny…as an African American male in a pretty homogenous workplace (I’m the one who sticks out), I often get accused of looking like I’m the “Angry Black Guy” — sometimes even when I’m genuinely happy. I agree with your statement — just let our faces be our faces. To think you can understand what is going on in another person’s mind based on their facial expression at the moment is to oversimplify the complex beings humans inherently are.
