If you believe that you are truly stupid.
Donald Trump has brought you out of the woodwork. Imagine that... Donald Dumpster Fire Trump is your cultural ambassador.
If you feel diversity is bad I strongly urge you to identify yourselves openly at your company and in public. Make your views known and state your name. Stop hiding.
Coding C++ requires high IQ; are you unaware of group average racial differences in IQ? Wanting a career in programming is correlated with object-oriented mindsets; are you unaware of group average gender differences in object vs person orientation?
He cited his sources. Quillette had a piece where credible scientists confirmed his interpretation of the data. The denialists here are pretty much just liberal creationists. Sorry you don't like the scientific reality but it's still true.
Facebook, there are a 100 ways to get someone to fail an interview with the entire hiring committee, especially if you're not the last interviewer. Thinking that the committee somehow helps with this is naive Would you stay silent and go on an interview if you knew that one of the interviewers dislikes you and hope that the hiring committee can see past it?
Guy's an idiot. That being said, it's often not a fair split. Being a single white person on a full team of Indians is just as bad as a single Indian on team of whites. both scenarios happen often. except that in the white case, it's worse due to language restriction and fear of being seen as a bigot if you complain about it.
The most common language in India is English. There are dozens of languages spoken in India. Hindi is probably less common than you think. English is spoken by everyone with a degree, and most of the population.
It was a pretty reasonable first draft of a doc - could have used more sourcing but the basic ideas were sound and respectfully presented. Lots of people saw value in the discussion, but even more flipped out and declared that a call for reasoned discussion of an empirical question was harmful and threatening to them; management/HR is going to side with them because that's the PC police state of today's tech companies.
There's a lot of relevant science out there, some of it cited in the doc. When he shared it with a small - but open - group it was with the intention of soliciting comments to improve the doc, and it has evolved over the last few days, including more sources being cited.
Have these people been on Google campus? "Google repeatedly discriminates against people of color". I guess Indians and Chinese don't count as minorities? wtf. This is just a bunch of angry individuals who want to lower the bar so people who can't pass the interviews can be installed into positions they aren't qualified for.
Unfortunately this positive discrimination will only backfire. Minorities don't want to be seen as the "sick people" as you used in your example. You probably didn't mean it that way, but that is how it will be viewed. After a while, even the minorities like myself who had to pass the same tough interviews will be viewed by white, Asians etc as someone who just got to the position I'm at because of the handouts I received. I just don't want white liberals ruining another industry that is already fair and equitable by using demagoguery for political gain
"Evolutionary psychology" may be a legit field but it's weak findings are way over interpreted in pop press. Whenever I see anything about it my BS radar goes off. His blanket stereotypes of "left" and "right" beliefs do not look right to me. The claim that exposure to androgens in the womb are what make male and female behavior different and has nothing to do with androgen exposure later in life is obviously goofy af or testosterone would not impact libido of both genders, help people with low levels be less depressed etc. the list goes on. Not worthwhile deconstructing the whole thing, but already those are foundational points to the rest.
Most of the views around what is right for how to handle the genders are varying levels of dodgy. Which would be less worrying if recent cultural changes weren't so widespread and we had at least 5-10 generations to judge their impacts to validate them.
The androgens thing is generally proven for significant behavioral changes in girls who experience them in the womb... Men derive from an initially female template, so a partial activation of some code from androgen exposure would hardly be shocking.
As for the conservative / liberal thing... It's something of a generalization but say you think of it as early adopters and late adopters... The early adopters reveal whether something has value and allows it to be refined before it's more widely accepted.
You can't have whole societies of early adopters or you wouldn't have any long term stability.
Of course, if you grow up in a liberal area, your conservative bias would likely just protect and enforce local beliefs... But the principle of managed adoption through real world testing - is an understandable and necessary trait for humanity to have.
It's just that humanity isn't designed for the current rate of change or separation of sub-populations.
White guy with Harvard education thinks Google discriminates white guys.
He's right, probably. But them's the shakes, bro. He hasn't gotten the message yet that his lot in life is to endure all the diversity and inclusion programs and political correctness while still enjoying the world's best opportunities.
Needs to shaddup and get in line, he ain't suffering
My point about Harvard is that the guy who posted the document went to the #1 school and works at the #1 company. Makes more money at age 26 or whatever than 99% of people ever will. And then he posts this doc about being discriminated against.
The world is his oyster. He can be a mega millionaire and have anything he wants. He just needs to realize that if he just shuts up and plays the PC game, he will be fine
Lmao ^^^ the crutch of every Google employee - the idea that they will get 10 mil in seed funding for an idea they half have just because they worked for Google 💩 - not sure if you’ve checked in with Uber lately but that mentality isn’t working out so well.
The author did not say that individual women are incapable of programming at Google. They attempted to explain why the demographics in IT jobs don't match the population at large and attempted to make a case that Diversity programs at Google will not counteract those factors effectively or in a way that will have tangible benefit for Google.
HKeh50- the systematic discrimination is real and not ridiculous. Though I agree Google can do little if most candidates are men, the problem is bigger than Google. Google can't undo millennia of indoctrination.
