By Zuri Anderson (Black Information Network) - A new Politico report alleges an exodus of Black White House workers under the Joe Biden administration. Reporters say at least 21 Black staffers have left their job or are planning to leave soon, describing a work environment where they're rarely supported by their superiors and a low chance at promotion.

Politico spoke with former and current White House employees, who provided various reasons for their departure. Some have moved to other departments, while others left for educational opportunities or to focus on family life.

Others claim they're often overlooked for a promotion, and there's a lack of Black mentorship to lean on in a "tense work environment with little time off."
