There's a lot of drama and discrimination in the workplace, but probably only a handful of people have experienced the race discrimination as much as the people of color who started entering predominantly white offices a few decades ago. Tom Floyd was born in Gary, Indiana in 1929 and operated his own advertising firm before working as a designer for the Inland Steel Company. There, his insights on racism dynamics were formed.

"As a 'BLACK' white collar worker having willingly and conscientiously taken an active part in America's leading social pre-occupation... An experiment called 'Integration' ... I feel compelled to assess my total experience on discrimination, and perhaps the experiences of other Blacks by saying…. 'INTEGRATION IS A BITCH'...," Tom Floyd commented.

Floyd used his personal experience as the only black man working in a white environment in the 60s, showcasing the absurd reality he was forced to be a part of. The cartoonist was a proponent of meaningful racial understanding and cooperation. His comic series 'Integration is a Bitch' was released in 1969, a time where the vast majority of works like it were rejected by publishers, too scared to deal with such a sensitive subject. Luckily, Floyd's work managed to squeeze its way into the pressing machine, and people say it's relevant even today.

Scroll down to check Floyd's vintage-style comics filled with disgraceful discrimination examples and best comebacks to the shortsighted racists themselves.

Years ago, I worked for a company that has been around for over 100 years. In the hallway hung a photograph taken in the 1930s (not a typo) of the executive officers. As you'd expect there were white dudes -- and one black man, standing tall and proud in his business suit, the head of their secretarial staff. There were no women, no Irish, no Italians, no Catholics, no Jews. Today that same company touts diversity, and have a multitude of VPs among minorities and women. Yet it's still pretty much a WASP men's club at the top. The glass ceiling is still around, it's just moved to a higher floor.

Accidental bumping like this could start horrific attacks on both the black person and the women. So he would be justifiably afraid. If a black woman could even get a job, things were much worse for them.
