Blinded by the White: “Simply put, Google is not where we want to be when it comes to diversity”

Posted by on May 29, 2014 at 6:57 am

Not that the largely white liberal media notices this stuff, but there’s a glaring lack of “diversity” practiced by those who constantly preach about diversity. If we were to behave like they do every day, we might imply they’re racist. We’d never do that, of course, but really folks, enough with this white privilege. It’s time to add some diversity to the workforce, and maybe consider giving the underprivileged a job.

In a groundbreaking disclosure, Google revealed how very white and male its workforce is — just 2 percent of its Googlers are black, 3 percent are Hispanic, and 30 percent are women.

This is shameful in 21st Century America and any company considered right-leaning would be excoriated in the media, pummeled mercilessly by the popular culture and condemned by the Democrats. But hey, Google leans so far left they’re nearly falling over, so they get away with this.

The search giant said Wednesday that the transparency about its workforce — the first disclosure of its kind in the largely white, male tech sector — is an important step toward change.

“Simply put, Google is not where we want to be when it comes to diversity,” Google Inc. senior vice president Laszlo Bock wrote in a blog.

The numbers were compiled as part of a report that major U.S. employers must file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Companies are not required to make the information public.

The gender divide is based on the roughly 44,000 people Google employed throughout the world at the start of this year. The company didn’t factor about 4,000 workers at its Motorola Mobility division, which is being sold to China’s Lenovo Group for $2.9 billion. The racial data is limited to Google’s roughly 26,600 workers in the U.S as of August 2013.

Can you imagine the white liberal media meltdown if it was discovered that, say, the Koch brothers had such an anemic ethnic breakdown among its 60,000 workforce?

Those same hypocrites always ignore the good they do.

For starters, the Kochs support university programs and think tanks that try “to understand the nature of human freedom and how that freedom leads to prosperity,” as the Charles Koch Foundation explains. The foundation underwrites research and teaching at Brown, Mount Holyoke, Sarah Lawrence, University of Wisconsin at Madison, Vassar, and some 245 other colleges. This includes a speaker series, reading group and essay contest at the University of Nevada Las Vegas in Harry Reid’s home state. Koch Industries (which offers same-sex spousal benefits to its legally married employees) also donated $814,000 to the Kansas State University Office of Diversity to assist “historically under-represented students.”

    Google doesn’t lecture about diversity. Not sure why this is an outrage. They hire the best and are proud of it.

    “Google doesn’t lecture about diversity”

    Let me google that for you… better yet, prove your assertion.

    Diversity is easy: Any two people are diverse. Even twins.

    The fact that the demographics do not fit someone’s notion of what they should be is not conclusive evidence of discrimination.

    You’ve got to work really hard to not have Hispanics in your workforce anywhere in CA. There’s 2000% more Mexicans in their parking lots than in the buildings.

    Of course, the explanation is that the majority of computer geeks, programmers, network engineers, etc, are white males. But that excuse would never fly if Google were a right wing chicken restaurant chain, for example.

    Remember don’t do evil. !

    Progressives define evil as any company who does not have an employee mix reflective of the general population – regardless of what they do. It must be racism.

    Google, Apple, Facebook, Yahoo, all tech companies hire based on need, Engineering, maths, computer sciences – walk around their sites, you will find they are overwhelmingly male – why- look at any computer science program at a top University – what do you see – lots of males – lots of people from India and Asia. You do see women, just not as much.

    The Latin guys I know in tech, cs students from Mexico, Spain,Brazil and Columbia. They had no problem getting hired.

    It’s time to add some diversity to the workforce, and maybe consider giving the underprivileged a job.

    A job doing what?

    Are they going to run out and look for black or Latino engineering students and hire them even if their GPA is low?

    Or are they just going to staff the lower-paid positions (maintenance, warehousing) with non-white and non-Asian individuals and then pat themselves on the back for a slightly more diverse workforce?
