The Alphabet Inc. unit had “irrefutable policies, memorialized in writing and consistently implemented in practice, of systematically discriminating in favor job applicants who are Hispanic, African American, or female, and against Caucasian and Asian men,”

    Asian is discriminated by both leftists and far right racists. Sad. I think I should just leave this country.

      Yep, Asian men are at the bottom of the discrimination chain in the US.

    Proponents of this sort of practice throw around lots of stuff about how diversity produces good teams. However true that might be, I've always felt economic class/family background has a lot more to do with diversity of perspective than skin colour or gender. What's a rich [insert minority] with educated parents going to bring to the table thats so different from a white/Asian male of the same means. These companies should put money where their mouths are and spend the money and time recruiting at 3rd tier school despite the low yield (Iowa state, university of Nebraska [some public school in a rural state]), I promise you there are good students there who are there for economic/family reasons. Don't find some black kid from Harvard who's dads a doctor or some Asian girl from the Bay Area who's parents are engineers and pretend like that's making a difference, that's just pathetic token bullshit. So much for judging people not by the colour of their skin but content of their character.

      Agreed! Hopefully these lawsuits bring a meaningful change for the better

      Seriously? Ethnic differences bring HUGE differences in perspective. Not that socio-economic diversity isn't also important, but dismissing ethnic diversity out of hand is a huge mistake.

    Google fucking pisses me off. My friends who are female or black ALWAYS get easier on-site questions and are judged much less harshly. For Asian men, when white-boarding NP-Complete problems, if they don’t come up with O(N) solutions, it’s a no from the hiring committee. I used to think Google was a great company, and desperately wanted to work there, but now I just feel deep deep shame.

      This is BS, I'm Hispano, finalist of ACM-ICPC in 2013(my algo and ds skills are decent) , I have experience discrimination at DBX, MSFT, etc... (one asian interviewer at msft, asked if we had enough food in my country.... blown away... ) usually asian interviewers with very bad attitude towards me and have heard similarly from a Mexican friend as well. Usually alone the lines of "Ha you were able to solve it , ah? What about this , and this, ....." and remember: "asian english" <------> "native english" <--------> "spanglish" , even harder for us. So shut up.

    Damn it feels good to be a white man. If only I were 10 years older and could enjoy all of this white privilege everyone tells me I have.

      White male here. It's only increased in the last 10 years, not decreased. I'm definitely re-upping on this white male thing.

      Non. Caucasian male male here, we are in it to win it. Strength in numbers!

    This is ljterally true. Diversity metrics that incenticize compensation are guised hiring quotas.

    This seems weird when I look around and see that more than 80% of my colleagues are white or asian males.

      Maybe the right percentage is 100% white or Asian male. Google gets the best applicants from every country, company, and university in the world. If 84% of computer science majors are white or Asian male in the US, then it’s probably similar around the world. So why wouldn’t those top candidates from Canada, China, and Europe apply for those same jobs?
      Mar 1, 2018
    • Yeah you're right, maybe the percentage is 100%. I'm totally with you in this. Let's claim our front of bus back.

    At this point Google should just excuse itself from this self-created political disclosure. This is no end to this war, and the company will be damaged.

      I wrk at google and I have been only interviewing women (Latino and black) since Jan this year from product manager roles. I am also being pestered by recruiters to say positive things to them. Very sad
