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.”
