You're still assuming more than what was said. Many places evaluate employees solely on the word of their superiors. Regardless, I don't think this will change your conclusion. However, the same could be said of hiring at McDonalds, which is probably just as useful a company as Reddit.

You miss the point. So you're saying that you would happily give up your white-malesness, if you still get to keep all the money? You don't realize how whiny this sounds? You have more money and power than anyone else in the world, on average, and you're complaining about how much you "don't matter". This is crazy.

Saying "coding" instead of "programming" is like saying "ciphering" instead of "mathematics". Please stop. Imaging the headline, "Arkansas is now the first state to require that high schools teach ciphering". I'm not a computer programmer, but I think you guys are disrespecting your discipline by encouraging the word "coding".

If most music sounds dull to you, then you better move beyond Western music. Listen to music which is not based on the diatonic scale. Example: Bulgarian state female choir. The dissonant chords will wake up your senses, and make you feel things you don't normally feel when listening to Western music. Even if you don't like it, I think it will help you understand what's missing from your musical palate, and lead you to discover something else interesting. Also, try to find not-too-Western-inspired African music. The chords sung by people from different cultures will push senses you never thought you had. Forreal.

You can't stop listening to music. Depression will slowly creep up on you, before you realize it.
