Biased’ Culture

Original Article

Posted By: Beardo, 3/21/2022 1:12:36 PM

A former Google employee filed a class-action lawsuit in a San Jose, California, federal court Friday alleging systemic bias against black employees and a corporate culture preferring white males, Reuters reported. The lawsuit, filed by April Curley, says Google places black employees in lower-level jobs, pays them less, and denies them opportunities to grow at the company, Reuters reported. Specifically, Curley states black people make up only 4.4% of employees and about 3% of leadership, according to Reuters. Curley also said Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google, required black people to show identification or else face questioning at the Mountain View, California campus, Reuters reported.

Could the real answer be that not many Blacks go into computer related majors in college? Of those that do go into computer related majors, how many want to work for Google / Meta or move to California? If there are no qualified Black candidates, they cannot be hired. As for showing ID, chances are that almost any person not flashing their company ID at any Silicon Valley company campus will be stopped and questioned by security. White people will show their ID and move on. Black people take any questions regarding ID personally. If the employees want to not be questioned they should wear their company ID like everyone else. They are not special.

It seems that once you learn to see everything through the lens of 'Race', then everything appears to be race related... As Poster #2 said, there are many reasons why they are under represented. My current company is trying to hire minorities for some senior computer related positions, and there aren't ANY applicants...

April, please forward a list of the creative ideas you introduced, so we can evaluate whether you deserved raises and promotions. The fact you ever got on the payroll proves Google is not biased against the ignorant, gold diggers, and the perpetually aggrieved and offended.

Google's white men are better than everyone else's white men. Leftists are the true racists, and they have a natural tendency to expect black people to get in line with their program. Accept handouts and be quiet. They care.

The systemic racism of the 2010 and on time frame is racist hate against white folks, and has an official US government approved name....Affirmative Action. That's just racism against white folks. Perhaps not ENOUGH racism against white folks, or (is it possible?) actual color blindness in hiring? That upsets the folks expecting huge amounts of racial preference in their favor.

So Google requires photo ID for their own company but rallies against it when it comes to voting. If it’s racist to require a photo ID for a black person to vote, surely it’s racist to require one for a black person to enter their buildings.

Anybody who has ever tried to work with blacks in a technical environment is usually sorely disappointed. Even those who may have the ability have the usual cultural chip on their shoulders and are not team players. In my 45 year career I have met two that did not fit that pattern. I had to fire one who spent more time on the cell phone than on the computer and judging by his quality of work, that was probably a good thing. Google no doubt bought into the diversity hogwash and got burned.

Call it the Trump curse. Scandals seem to befall his most moralistic critics — from the activists at the Lincoln Project to journalists like Chris Cuomo to the imprisoned lawyer Michael Avenatti. A new addition to this roster of undone Trump critics is Mark Galli, the former editor of Christianity Today. The publication reported last week that according to its investigators he sexually harassed women for years. “Eight women alleged that Galli touched them inappropriately" (snip) In 2019, Galli enjoyed a brief spurt of fame after he called for Trump’s removal from office. Galli said that Trump lacked the “morality” necessary to serve in the presidency

The City of West Hollywood is launching a guaranteed income program that excludes straight people. Here are the guidelines as laid out by the city government’s website: Community members who are interested in applying for the West Hollywood Pilot for Guaranteed Income must reside in the City of West Hollywood, be 50 years or older, identify as LGBTQIA, and have an individual income of $41,400 or less. So if you are straight, if you are not a member of LGBTQIA (and I have no idea what half those letters mean), you should not bother to apply “to receive unconditional monthly $1,000 payments from April 2022 through September 2023.”CORRECTION*

The 28-year-old AOC-backed candidate facing a run-off against centrist Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar had a long-term affair with her former high school teacher, can exclusively reveal. Jessica Cisneros was in a sexual relationship with educator-turned-lawyer John Balli, now 51, and called him 'babe' in a 2011 text professing her love when she was 18 — and he was 41. The ultra-liberal would-be Congresswoman began a sexual relationship with him after he began dating his future second wife Sandra Ramirez in May 2011. But the secret lovers had a painful split when Balli and Ramirez wed in July 2011.

After reciting the pledge, Chasten Buttigieg and the campers waved gay pride flags and cheered.

Owens Corning, headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, held a company-wide meeting on Tuesday that included a talk from Paula Stone Williams—an influential evangelical pastor turned transgender activist. An individual who viewed her remarks to the construction company told the Washington Free Beacon that Williams said American Christians are the root of anti-trans bigotry. The International Women's Day conversation also featured discussion of the lack of attention paid to nonbinary people in the workplace.

When lawyer Sarah Weddington stood up in the Supreme Court on Oct. 11, 1972, to present the pro-abortion argument in the case of Roe v. Wade, she was legalistically careful in the language she used to describe whom exactly an abortion aborted. She avoided normal human terms like "unborn child" or "baby" -- and, most importantly, "person." She preferred "fetus." Presumably, this was because the Fourteenth Amendment states, "nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

This put the U.S. in a ‘put up or shut up’ position.

A Boeing 737-800 passenger jet operated by China Eastern Airlines has crashed in rural China, presumably killing all 132 souls aboard. Video of the plane nosediving into the ground and the aftermath has emerged. As is expected with any video of this kind, viewer discretion is advised. Much is unknown at this point, but I am a commercial multi-engine pilot and a flight instructor so I can add a few points of speculation to ponder. According to the flight data available, the rapid descent started at around 30,000 feet. That would point to either a structural failure that caused a loss of flight controls or a high-altitude stall
