I'm not at all surprised that these companies are
totally racist in their non hiring of "non White" staff,
as I have pointed out before, when Women are spoken of in such matters,
it is White women who have got and get the job,
the statistics which go with this article on USA Today,
are a damming indictment of ongoing White American and White world racism.
What is more repugnant about this case is that the companies named
are the ones who in particular young people have faith in,
for being trendy, hip, modern and non racist.
The racial makedown of the staff goes someway in explaining why social media sites have become such a haven for some of the most vile and disgusting racists on our planet.
Were more Black and people of color involved in these companies, and
I don't just mean in the catering and cleaning department, but
throughout the staff and hierarchy,
then groups such as "Stormfront", "No White GeNocide" and
a host of other nazi minded detritus,
would not find a safe place
from where they can spread their poison and
recruit for their racial war machinations.
Stormfront alone is implicated in over 100 murders.
I have campaigned against the Boeremag race terrorists,
who tried to bomb Nelson Mandela, start a race war then
drive all "non Whites" out of the country and
set up a Whites only state in Africa.
Facebook has banned me from their site for
campaigning for them to take down
the Boeremag terrorist support page.
Twitter followed suit and not only banned me, but
insist on finding racists and nazis for me to "follow".
America is at about 15% African American,
that should be reflected as a minimum,
not just in the tech companies, but
across the board and the other so called "minorities"
should be represented at least by their percentages too.
If these companies want to act in a racial way,
let them move to where they have only their own race and
deprive America of the revenue and
the shame which they are helping to maintain.
This is a Civil and Human Rights Issue,
which all races should band together and fight.
