- A lot of privileges. White men are preferred by all races of women. White people do not have pretenses that they are shy or will not speak up or do not have a propensity for leadership. White people are perceived to be american in the us. Asian people are not perceived to be american even if we have been here for several generations. Asian women have a hard time
To be taken seriously at meetings.Jul 11 10
- As for asian privilege in Asia, absolutely not. White people have white privilege in Asia. Think about - so many white people in Asia that are losers and cannot speak the local language but if an asian person cannot speak English in the us then that person will be an outcast. While people will get paid more in Asia just because they are white.Jul 11 10
- Holy shit GapF22 what a racist statement, literally. “Lower the bar?” Lmao You assume white people are inherently at a “higher bar.” Lmao Not true in the fucking least. I’ve never seen more mediocrity than amongst white men I’ve worked with. That’s white privileged by the way: being mediocre as fuck but still getting advantages all throughout your life and having the audacity to think other people aren’t as good as you just because the system is tilted in your favor. Laughable.Jul 11 3
- You’re attacking unrelated points of my argument here and attacking my character instead of arguing. You also turned a question of race into a point of “white male privilege mediocrity”.
In the instance described above, there was evidence of lowering the bar for minority’s in at least one case to promote diversity hiring. My question was and still is, what advantage does the company have for lowering the bar in any instance to increase the count of diversity hires?Jul 12 0

- Ironically white Americans are becoming a minority in most of FAANG and Bay Area tech companies.
Anyway, it’s racist to discriminate based on race. Period.
The way to improve diversity is to source from diverse talent pools. For example, go to African American fraternities/sororities or professional groups (Black Girls Who Code), stuff like that.
In that case I really hope these giant lefty tech companies keep diversity hiring and diversity promoting.
It will make then weaker and shittier companies in the short and long term.
Hopefully it will hasten their demise.
Better companies will rise up and replace them.
- Why is having racial diversity at a company even beneficial? Obviously I understand an inclusive environment. What inherit value does hiring people simply because they are an underrepresented minority add?
- New DzrU11“In court documents filed in January, he alleges Google's "quota-based hiring practices" systematically instructed recruiters to "purge" eligible Caucasian and Asian candidates from potential hiring pools”
“He also alleges Google subjected him "to unsubstantiated performance reviews, performance criticisms and [terminated] his employment." Wilberg was fired in November 2017.”

- Reverse discrimination makes no sense at all. If there was true equal opportunity in the workplace you wouldn’t need diversity hires. You can google any major and minor company’s website and you see no minorities in leadership. Is that accidental or is it deliberate? Then if discrimination is intentional then so should diversity.
- Being in corporate America for 20 years. Trust me there is neither equality in outcome or opportunity. I have seen that non-minorities are promoters hired on potential (I think we should give them a shot), minorities are promoted or hired (if at all) is based on experience. They would have already done the job somewhere else, went to an Ivy League school or really have proven results. I don’t have to be convinced this happens. I see it every dayJul 16 0
- It’s good for you too, not just the minorities. The more women and minority employees work on at team or at a company, the more women and minorities will be interested in joining your team/company. So you now have access to more talent.
Plus it’s good for the team culture in my experience.
- Companies want to hire the best to compete against everyone else in the world. India has 4 times the population of the US, China’s is a little bit higher.
Let’s be VERY generous and assume for one second that the traits/skills needed to be a good engineer are equally distributed amongst the world’s population.
Now let’s extrapolate this data to ethnicity and ask ourselves; what company would seriously consider competing against the entire world with just a fraction of its population?
Shouldn’t one feel special if they don’t feel racially represented in their workplace?
- These comments proves the needs for it! Every time diversity is brought up the assumption is made that unqualified minorities will be hired. I see every day unqualified majority hired. You can go to every company and see that systematically minorities are intentionally left out of Sr Management. Why would you oppose minorities at the table unless you had a problem with minorities
- I don’t oppose minorities at the table and am not questioning companies initiatives to encourage and support an inclusive work environment. I’m challenged the instances where companies are willing to pay more, hire easier, make a recruiting target of, and favor minorities on the sole fact that they are a minority.Jul 12 0
