Personally, I am for affirmative action, but not for individuals like you.
As you should know, the term “snowflake” was not intended to be racial in nature, but rather, as an identifier for the non-URM lowlife who seeks here to take unfair advantage of an opportunity that was presumably created to correct a social injustice. As a minority, I do feel that we are entitled to not “special treatment”, but instead, special access to equalize the exposure to firms that have long been available to people like Snowflake.
By the way, I actually am not a strong supporter of affirmative action, and once at the firm, I intend to compete with my non-URM co-workers based solely on my performance.
Oh, ok, that makes perfect sense now that you put in the context of "special access" opposed to "treatment".
