>>52878981 >No one wants to hire a fat feminist or a black guy that can't act white. this is actually totally true. i live in the bay area and as much as people claim they want to support diversity, there's an obvious "doesn't act white" filter that prevents minority groups from getting in (assuming they even make it far enough to apply, get through basic high pass filters, etc...).
basically people want minority characters that support diversity in a white sense - a non-threatening activism toward inclusiveness that most minority folks don't fit.
you may not need to have white skin, but people want you to *be* white, and now we use terms like "culture fit" and whatnot to exclude people.
>>52879037 not him, but while i agree this ultimately points to the disingenuous nature of "inclusive" movements in the tech industry.
if you want black people and asian people and whatnot in your company, but you don't want them bringing black and asian culture into the workplace, then you really don't want to be inclusive. what you really want is token minority characters.
the uncomfortable reality that nobody's talking about is that nobody really wants diversity. if they did, they would be pushing this kind of cultural diversity that we still don't see.
what Silicon Valley SJWs seem to really want is to give everyone a chance to get whitewashed.
>>52879099 >what Silicon Valley SJWs seem to really want is to give everyone a chance to get whitewashed. They want jobs in a field they are not qualified for. That's why they make up bullshit do nothing jobs like developer advocate.
>>52879343 White people would give away pretty much everything they created to appease token brown people and women though. They fucking revel in 'the first woman X and the first black Y'. NOBODY else does that, certainly not in majority brown countries.
>>52879253 >Do you people seriously have to do *everything*?
Yes because since the beginning of time black people left in charge of groups of people have fucked up and gotten nowhere. You either sell yourselves as slaves or just rot away in cowshit huts only leaving to perform oral sex on cattle so you can use the piss to dye your hair. IN 2016!
White people have shaped the entire history of this planet and will continue to do so.
>>52879530 He's talking about a repeat of the dotcom bubble, except this time people are actually heavily using the services of tech companies and it's much more sustainable. Companies like Twitter still aren't profitable and might not survive a stock market correction, but others like Netflix, Amazon, Airbnb, Uber are integrated into the fabric of society - they're not going anywhere.
>>52879575 it pains me to imagine losing twitter. it's one of the only social networking sites that's stuck with a simple, straight-forward idea and that's resisted the merchant-like activities so prevalent thanks to shitbook
>>52878973 Pretty great. There are no niggers or feminist in IT in Poland. My boss also realized that putting skill-less cheap Asians into white team just doesn't work. Also because everything here is cheap as fuck, foreign companies wants to hire people for relatively lower pay which in fact is really lot's of money here.
>>52882130 It was never meant for meaningful discussion. It's just place to express your opinion without going into details and quickly check others' stands. It's still pretty shitty place in my opinion.
White guy in his mid 20's about to graduate with a Master's degree in Comp. Eng. this spring, so I guess this thread is aimed at people like me.
How do I feel? Thankful that I don't live in Murrica and that I have plenty of employment opportunities in my own country and the ones close to it. Scandinavia and northern Europe in general is considered to be on the forefront of progressive politics, but this hatred of white people disguised as progressive politics has thankfully failed to take root over here. All it ever amounted to was some workshops for women and programming becoming a mandatory subject in schools.
But the way Github is actively shunning about 80% of the technology sector workforce when worker turnaround in the tech sector is huge they're bound to crash and burn sooner or later. When they do, they'll send a message that this hate of white people disguised as progressiveness is not a good idea and thus you can say that there's hope just yet as the people running this shit don't know what they're doing.
>>52879029 There's no such thing as acting white. White people created the dominant culture in this country so you either belong to a subculture or you belong to the dominant culture, i.e. acting line a normal, professional goddamn person.
>>52878973 Not too bad actually. If you're not stupid there's plenty of work out there.
My advice is, if you're having trouble finding work, just get a shit job--anything works, I used Walmart, but the more personal notice you get from your supervisor the better. When you're there, work your fucking balls off, and make sure your supervisor notices. A reference that says you're a hard worker can help you get jobs you're not even qualified for.
