    Mark Zuckerburg even sent out a notice telling people to stop erasing #blacklivesmatter and replacing it with #alllivesmatter on their chalkboard wall at the office. Clear sign of systemic racism at Facebook, right from the leader himself.

      That's right. Stating that all lives matter is racist as fuck. There are way too many people who either did not study or did not pay attention to set theory.

    I don't think this is common. Also, am not white, but I see a LOT of open anti-white animosity from other groups, and also powerful ethnic cliques that deliberately exclude whites. I am sure this is considered a good thing, so hopefully you will join us and expiate the original sin of your whiteness (if you're white).

      Trolling is different from using sarcasm as a vehicle to state an uncomfortable truth.

      It’s pretty clear you’re white and you’re just trying to drum up sympathy for your cause.

      Idiot, don't tell me what I am, or insinuate that my views are antithetical to my identity. Matherchod, randi ke pille (sorry, taking that back, but came out of my gutter non-white mouth).

    Racists are common in USA, not just in Facebook, or tech for that matter. But they are normally too afraid to let others know until they’re emboldened by other bigots. Once they make themselves known, punch them.

      Love that my comment that said that the majority of Asians in Asia are racist against dark skinned people like me got flagged.

      I’m sorry that happened. For all it’s worth, many more Asians love dark skinned people considering South Asia and Southeast Asia. Although, I’ll admit, western colonialism and caste systems did embed an idea of beauty that is western in familiarity (like sharp noses and light skin). That’s true. I think in China, Japan, and Korea, though, dark skinned people are generally seen as celebrities.

    Disclaimer, I’m Asian:

    Newsflash - We’re the most hated ethnicity in the US. Literally no one likes us. We’re tolerated because we’re quiet, and are a foil to compare against more “problematic” minorities.

      Well here's a bigger flash -There's definitely a group that's hated on and stereotyped even more. Most often they're just doing the needful ..

      Who is just doing the needful? BTW, racism is a human thing. The US does not hold a franchise on this.
      Racist actions are worse than words and occur outside the US higher.
      Think about being black or Indian in the middle east.
      Then imagine being black or indian and poor in the middle east.
      Remember last year that black Africans were auctioned in Libya?
      The US has laws against discrimination in the workplace, so you only will ever face micro agressions.

      Lol, how do you qualify "most hated"? And what's even the point of arguing which minority is hated the most?

      But yeah I don't like Asians (lol jk)

      Why would the least “problematic” minority be the most hated? Lol

      I can’t help but notice this odd inferiority complex where Asians feel they’re not openly hated enough compared to other minorities in the US.

      Asians most hated? Lol. Asians have it good vs blacks and Arab/middle eastern

    No more or less than any other large organization. The trolls come out on blind because it's anonymous. Could very well be contractors and not FTEs.

    There is a block function. Use it or go back to your safe space.

    You suck is not racism, grow a pair OP.
    Is stupidity common at LinkedIn?

    Lot of folks are going to be running for cover when the eventual hack on blind happens 😂 in the meantime who cares OP, join FB and earn a higher TC. Such folks don’t have the guts to say things to your face anyway

    I always wonder at people that say, I don't like Asians, or blacks or white.
    If an Asian or black or white person did something that you didn't like, why not direct your ire at that single person? Why develop an opinion of every single person that happens to have very superficial similarities to said offender?
    What if an Asian doctor saved your life, would you like all Asians?
    Just wonder at this blanket dislike. A societies laws gives you a better idea of how the culture manifests, than a single person.
    And in the case of society, it's not really built by individual desire but some sort of consensus... In most cases manufactured. So might be a good indicator of individual ideals or character.
    Just saying...

      Too many find hate comforting, and too many then find others to celebrate their hate. I'd say FB is slightly less racist and significantly more diverse then most California tech companies

      Yeah. I guess people prefer to double down on ignorance than expand their horizon

    Block and move on. Your time is better spent than dealing with assholes. Bad apples are everywhere. Learn to identify and avoid.

    OP
    Good points so far! You guys are right, one anonymous comment shouldn’t be a factor on evaluating an offer. And that person probably has some real frustrations.

    Generally speaking asian engs got worse wlb with better impact/ratings. Sacrifice is real sometimes. Maybe this guy is just jealous.
