Google’s adherence to its social justice creed has led it down a dark path. One where they fire employees for stating biological facts, and practice censorship based on how right-wing your ideological stances are. But according to one lawsuit, Google’s hiring practices are replete with racism and sexism against white or Asian men.
According to the Wall Street Journal, former Google employee Arne Wilberg claims that the company set a diversity quota in terms of hires, and was told to reject males based on their skin color:
The lawsuit, filed by Arne Wilberg, a white male who worked at Google for nine years, including four years as a recruiter at YouTube, alleges the division of Alphabet Inc.’s Google set quotas for hiring minorities. Last spring, YouTube recruiters were allegedly instructed to cancel interviews with applicants who weren’t female, black or Hispanic, and to “purge entirely” the applications of people who didn’t fit those categories, the lawsuit claims.
A Google spokeswoman said the company will vigorously defend itself in the lawsuit. “We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity,” she said in a statement. “At the same time, we unapologetically try to find a diverse pool of qualified candidates for open roles, as this helps us hire the best people, improve our culture, and build better products.”
People familiar with YouTube’s and Google’s hiring practices in interviews corroborated some of the lawsuit’s allegations, including the hiring freeze of white and Asian technical employees, and YouTube’s use of quotas.
That Google would do this is 100 percent believable, given its recent actions that seem straight out of the social justice warrior playbook. During an August interview with Jordan Peterson, fired Google employee James Damore said that Google typically films its workshops and events in the interest of transparency. However, there was one that did not get filmed, and that was a diversity summit where Damore alleges Google suggested practicing illegal hiring procedures, and employees were encouraged to treat people differently based on race and sex.
It’s not a mystery that Google is a left-wing company. The question is now whether or not Google’s leftism has pushed it into the realm of illegality.
