    Google Sued by Ex-Recruiter Alleging Anti-White, Asian Bias

    March 1, 2018

    The critics of Google’s effort to promote workforce diversity now include one of its own former recruiters, who claims in a lawsuit he was fired because he didn’t toe the line on rejecting white and Asian male job candidates.

    The Alphabet Inc. unit had “irrefutable policies, memorialized in writing and consistently implemented in practice, of systematically discriminating in favor job applicants who are Hispanic, African American, or female, and against Caucasian and Asian men,” according to the complaint filed in state court in Redwood City, California.

    Arne Wilberg, who worked at Google and its YouTube unit for about nine years both as a contractor and an employee, claims he was terminated in retaliation for complaining to human resources about the company’s hiring practices. Wilberg also alleged that late last year, management deleted emails and other digital records of diversity requirements.

    A Google spokeswoman said the company will vigorously defend itself against the lawsuit.

    “We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity,” Gina Scigliano said in an email. “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.”

    Google has faced criticism over its diversity practices from both sides: those who say it’s not doing enough to include women and underrepresented racial minorities, and those who assert that its efforts go too far. Google and many other technology giants started publicly sharing data on racial and gender diversity in 2014 and have faced pressure to increase the percentage of their workforce that isn’t white or Asian men.

    Wilberg said that in 2016 and 2017, he and his fellow recruiters were told on several occasions to approve or dismiss job candidates based solely on whether they were women, black or Latino. In March 2017, a YouTube staffing manager emailed recruiters and told them, "Please continue with L3 [level three] candidates in process and only accept new L3 candidates that are from historically underrepresented groups." In another email, the same manager wrote, "We should only consider L3s from our underrepresented groups."

    The case is Wilberg v. Google 18-CIV-00442, California Superior Court, San Mateo County (Redwood City).

    Per the lawsuit,

    the company stopped hiring white and Asian male employees to technical roles at some point in 2017 to improve employee diversity rankings throughout the company. ... Google set quotas for the hiring of minorities at the company which resulted in discrimination against white and Asian male employees. ... YouTube recruiters were told to cancel interviews with applicants that weren’t female, black or Hispanic and to “purge entirely” any applications that did not fit those criteria. ...

    One Google employee told Breitbart News, “Witch hunts are a well-known cultural problem at Google. The company is currently facing a Federal complaint filed by the National Labor Relations Board in April for interfering with employees’ legal right to discuss ‘workplace diversity and social justice initiatives.’ ... Senior Vice President Urs Holzle and numerous managers in his organization actively stoked up witch hunts in 2015 and 2016 intended to muzzle low-level employees who raised concerns about the company’s practices.”

    Wilberg ... faced discrimination from Google over his sex and race and retaliated against his complaints by firing him, violating antidiscrimination laws in the process. ... he made multiple complaints to managers about YouTube’s hiring process and escalated these complaints to superiors at Google before being fired last November. ... YouTube recruiters were told that they were expected to hire five new employees each. Each of these new employees allegedly must have been from an underrepresented group, and recruiters used what was known as a “diversity tracker” to keep a count of the number of minorities hired. ...

    Wilberg’s lawsuit corroborates many claims made by ... James Damore. ...

    There will never be meaningful change until those who are not affected by harmful policies are just as outraged as those who are.

    What they are teaching here is that Racism Against Whites is just fine and Politically Correct.
