You can look at how many women they have in tech and how many blacks they have in tech compared to relevant degrees issued to each group. Google has far higher of these "diversity" groups than those that are qualified in the work force. It's basically using the left's tactics against them to figure their own racism and sexism.

Yes, from experience there are a good 5 trans people at one of the mid sized offices. 5 trans people for a 1000 person office, when the trans proportion of the population is what? Certainly not 5%. I've also seen massive upticks in the number of lesbians and blacks. Most of the latter are africans, by the way, not african american.

They are hiring for demographics. I've personally interviewed Chinese women who couldn't tell me what recursion is despite a 'masters degree'. Several of them have been hired with 2 out of 5 across the board. Every single time they were female and non-white.

I have no problem working with blacks, transgendered people, etc. I have a big problem with hiring incompetent people because they fit a target demographic.

I went to High School with this kid who was borderline mentally-retarded. He was never interested in IT or computers, as far as I could tell, and he ended up becoming expelled and didn't graduate High School for some really weird, fucked up shit. Turns out, years later, that he had gone through MTF transition, and had worked for Google for about 9 months. Obviously he was never qualified. He certainly didn't get hired for any qualifications, and he didn't leave with any other than the resume boost of having worked for Google. So now (I've referenced his LinkedIn) he's worked for six or seven top fortune 100 companies as a developer, and he hasn't developed shit on his own. I wouldn't care except the dude has made probably over a million dollars in 4 or 5 years, for doing nothing except cutting his dick off. I'm in IT, and it is absolutely infuriating knowing all the wonderful, talented developers that I do, who struggle to make ends meet, while this guy has his SJW stamp of approval and is out driving his Bentley around. It would almost make me jealous if it weren't for the knowledge that no amount of money will ever bring his manhood back. He'll never have a family, he'll never be truly happy. However, like I stated, it is still infuriating that they'll pass over truly talented people to hire those who make their workplace more "colorful".

The funny thing is that google is simultaneously getting sued for discrimination against women for unequal pay. Play stupid games (identity politics), win stupid prizes.

Google has so many employees. Most of these big companies have a fuckton of employee doing barely any work that matters.

The heavy lifting always go to the traditional white male nerds.

qualified white males were turned down for the position solely due to their race

Isn't that exactly what Affirmative Action says should happen?

No, you see, Affirmative Action states that you should use merit and credentials to hire someone, except you have to take into account race and gender, but you shouldnt use it to judge a person. I think Silicon Valley, the show, managed to capture it quire well

If gender and race are protected against discrimination in the workplace having more people testify with examples like this could lead to a winning lawsuit.

…the “presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with ‘boos’ during companywide weekly meetings.”

I’m not sure I would have stuck around a company where people boo the fact that people like me work there. That will mess with your head.

Then there’s this:

In September, three female former Google employees filed a lawsuit against the company, saying it pays women at all levels of the company less than men, as well as assigns them lower job tiers with less opportunity for upward mobility.

Lawsuits are business as usual at a large company. I’m sure older companies aren’t surprised by any of this. They just pay the lawyers and continue doing business.

The best part is this is the best possible environment for this lawsuit in a decade at least. If he takes it high enough he will encounter the right non cuck judge.

What are the odds that the Clinton fan would be the best candidate for the job?

Does the job involve being both intelligent and not a sociopath? Because it is 2018 bud, Clinton fans are one of those two things by now if they haven't figured it out I can't even imagine a job they'd be qualified to do.
