Lawsuit over Google's discrimination against white and Asian applicants

YouTube last year stopped hiring white and Asian males for technical positions because they didn’t help the world’s largest video site achieve its goals for improving diversity, according to a civil lawsuit filed by a former employee.

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 GOOGL 1.19% 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. ...

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.

If Asians nationwide would check off hispanic, it would cause chaos to the system.

Wow, they literally trashed White, Asian, Male applications and cancel interviews. That's got to be an EEOC violation somehow.

Look, it’s just communism. If the brown man doesn’t do well, it’s the white man’s fault. If the yellow man does well, he gets promoted to white man and gets hated on as well. What’s the common theme? Take from those who have to give to those who haven’t. Communism.

I say enough of that. As Jesus said, “the poor you shall always have with you...” Time to stop dwelling on utopian projects to help the poor. If you want to make the world a better place, help the poor kids... of EVERY color!
No reason to give a privileged black kid a full ride scholarship based on Affirmative action. Let’s means test that bitch and help someone else who may actually need it.
The black girl at my high school got like 60k in scholarships, and her parents were significantly better off than mine. She was smart and capable and didn’t need the help at all. But I’m sure other kids did.

Yes sir. Post-modernism is the "Tankie's Lifeboat":
https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Postmodernism#Tankie_lifeboat

It all ties the South African White Land Expropriation and #MeToo together:
As a result, there remains a hyper-paranoid wing of postmodernism which appears to have "white men" taking the traditional place of the "capitalist pigs" in their otherwise Maoist-inspired models. This can go so far as for modern adherents of this worldview to claim that minorities who disagree with their politics are merely dupes for white men.[26]

Likewise, many radical postmodernists (notably Foucault) denounced common liberal conceptions of human rights, such as the concept of "justice", as mere attempts to distract the masses. The apparent ease of switching between authoritarian communist and postmodernist interpretations can be understood as the shared belief that human society is a one-dimensional, zero-sum game between the oppressor and oppressed — but with cultural, racial, and gender issues either displacing or being added to the economic ones.[27]

For instance, the postmodernist Chantal Mouffe outlines her opposition to liberal democracy in favor of a society where minorities (as opposed to majorities) exert far greater power. This position eerily resembles claims among communists that liberal democracy was decadent compared to "the true democracy" of some group exercising power on behalf of the working class.[28] This impulse to reflexively oppose Western democracy led to such political bedfellows as Michael Foucault speaking in favor of Islamic theocracy and many New Left intellectuals cheerleading anti-colonialist Third-Worldist revolutionaries who were clearly devolving into totalitarian dictators.[29]
