Sergey Brin is the primary cause of Google’s political bias. Google is not going anywhere with him being President.

This man is the sole reason behind why so many people are upset at Google. It is very clear in his speeches. He is biased because he is a refugee.

But an intelligent person, refugee or not, should know that the value of diversity of thought is crucial. Watch any of his speeches. I have never once seen him even *allude* to welcoming opinions that sway away from one side. I have seen Sundar Pichai and many other executives at least acknowledge that other opinions should be welcomed.

But this guy is too much of a brat to even acknowledge that. Until and unless Sergey Brin remains to be the President of Alphabet and Google, this company is going nowhere.

      True. Bad choice of words. What I meant to say is that it won’t be the powerhouse reputation wise it is today if this stuff continues. Its reputation has already lowered compared to a few years ago.

      But Brin was the President since Google was founded. How could it grow from 0 to trillion dollar company despite his bias?

    I would say anyone able to run a company that hires tens of thousands of intelligent people means you value diversity of thought. What people like yourself get mad about is that certain ideas don't get safe spaces within groups of very smart people very often and saying bullshit like "he is biased because he is a refugee" is easier then admitting everything you believe is true might just not be able to reach the bar once you apply a certain level of research and critical thought.

    You're not debating any of his ideas you're just attacking his character because you feel wronged in someway. If you have a better way of running a tech company literally nothing is stopping you.

      Why do you assume OP works for FB full time? He could be a contingent worker or ex employee or failed intern. People at FB aren't hating against goog because we have the same biz model. Seriously, stop being so insecure.

      We have 1/3 the number of employees which makes our revenue more respectable

    Sergey has the least to do with it. It got crazy when Ruth Porat joined. Ever since HRC lost Porat, Schmidt, Wosjicki have been super vocal abt SJW crap. Sergey is more responsible for the pre-SJW culture imo.

      How do you get that? He was literally a refugee

    • Salesforce :w!
      His parents were rather well off in the USSR (I.e. his father was allowed to go to conferences outside of the country, government provided apartment in the Moscow downtown etc) but wanted more. There was only one legal way to leave the USSR at that time: be a Jew and request repatriation to Israel. Many Jews would go to the US embassy in transit stop to claim refugee status because they did not actually want to move to Israel (war, mandatory military service, poorer country, fewer opportunities etc).
      So while they can pretend to be refugees realistically it was economically motivated immigration.

      See comment above me. Nearly all refugees from USSR had the funds/connections to do so.

      USSR was grossly anti-Semitic like Russia has always been. Jews leaving was sensible

      @SlimeSZN, BS. Lots of refugees from USSR, and the rest of the communist block, escaped by crossing the border, risking their lives and the well being of their families. Others didn't return when they were allowed abroad. The Brins were in a different group: first, they were allowed to leave the USSR. Wow. ththey were helped by international organizations to find a job and (afterwards, really) a home in the US. They are not refugees.

    I don't think Sergey is the problem. I think who came after him and the fact that we have 80k+ employees might be the problem. We are too big and just a 1% of the G population at this point is enough to influence the majority in whatever direction they want.
