Google - Why are you so sexist and racist?posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 3/19/2006 07:18:00 PM
Google Executive Management Distribution by Race
10 Caucasian (79%)
1 African (7%)
1 Asian (7%)
1 Hispanic (7%)
Google Executive Management Distribution by Gender
12 Males (93%)
1 Female (7%)
Contrast this with America.
America Distribution by Race
201 million Caucasian (68.4%)
41 million Hispanics (14%)
39 million African (12.7%)
13 million Asian (4.6%)
Look at the disparity. Caucasians are overpresented by 10%. Hispanics are underrepresented by 7%. African Americans are underrepresented by 5.7%. What is interesting is that Asian Americans, while seemingly overrepresented, are actually significantly underrepresented. Does Google represent America? No. Not even close.
Contrast this with Silicon Valley.
Silicon Valley by some estimates has townships which are 30-50% Asian American. It is common knowledge that the bulk of the blood and sweat equity in Silicon Valley is provided by this group of hard working individuals. Asians are probably the largest group of engineers. Within Google, Asians probably represent 20-30% of employees. Yet, within the executive management, there is only 1 Asian American. Some of the hardest working, most creative, and inspiring people I know are Asian, and I find it hard to believe that they are not worthy of being represented. Not only does Google not represent America, but also the executives at Google don't even represent their employees. Google, why are you so racist?
The disparity doesn't end there. Look no further than the gender distribution.America Distribution by Gender
144 million Males (49.2%)
149 million Females (50.8%)
I find it alarming that there is 1 woman who is part of Google's executive management team (7%) when in America 50.8% of Americans are women. Eric, please help me understand why. At Stanford, the number of women engineers is probably between 20-40%. Why is it that only 1 woman sits on the executive management group Eric? Google, why are you so sexist?
I live only a few minutes from the Googleplex and there are plenty of co-eds Eric. I can attest to that personally. And some of the smartest and most accomplished people I know, managers and engineers, are women. They are of my generation. The Internet generation. If you read this post, Eric, I urge to defend your actions to the rest of America when the numbers clearly show that the hiring practices at Google box out women and minorities from leadership roles and are clearly tilted in the favor of Caucasian males.
