Inspite of so many Asians (Chinese, Indian) working at FB, I see only one of them making to top two level executives (Jay Parikh). Is FB racist?

Edit: As a FB employee pointed out, Jay was bought up and pursued his bachelors in US.

    Why is this even a question? Top leadership is a biased sample based on who joined the company early. Indians and Chinese avoid risk and were probably under-represented in that early sample. Can we please appreciate the entrepreneurship of white people instead of fashionably bashing them?

      Nope. Indian dude here. I'm not buying into any kind of race baiting.

      Lol !! Indian and Chinese well represent the startup scene. Everybody does. Looks like you have been at zero startups. Believe me startup cannot risk being selective - anything that furthers business interest is a hire.

      No they don't. If not FAANG they go to Tier 2 or other sure shot startups (AirBnB, Uber, etc.). How many join a risky venture? It is mostly the ones that couldn't make it to FAANG or the top tier startups. No risk, no reward. Indians and Chinese are already doing much better from that perspective: No risk and high reward at Tier 1s.

      Immigrants who complain about rascism in well run companies have no idea how good they have it in America. It's combination of democracy and free market is unparalleled in the rest of the world. Be greatful, appreciate your freedom, your good fortune and stop bitching about false things.

    Yes Facebook has been infiltrated by white supremacists and is now being used as a tool to suppress minorities.

    It’s time we make this issue known, so let’s get this hashtag trending #WhiteBook, only then will we be able to dismantle this institution of racism and bigotry

      Tin foil hat much? No infiltration needed, they just paid an amoral company a lot of money to do immoral things.

      When you consider that most of the Asians are probably immigrants and that western and eastern cultures have very different value systems that are reflected in how they do businesses, does this come as much of a surprise? It’s not about race.

      OP is in for a surprise when they read the report and see the % Asian in senior leadership.

    Almost every high level manager I interact with is non-American. Not sure which team you are at.

    Zuckerberg believes that only the white man’s mind can build an application that influences the white minds.
