Why Did Google Freak Out, Fire Employee Over ‘Honest Discussion’ Written in Memo?

Written by  Michael Morris

The tolerance police at Google just struck another blow against increasing diversity in Silicon Valley by firing an employee who wrote a memo critiquing the company’s politically correct culture.

Now, let’s be clear: While the Google software engineer who authored the memo had the right to say and write what he did—it’s called free speech—Google is a private company and has every right to fire an employee it deems not in line with its mission or culture.

But it’s fair to ask why Google reacted so negatively to an employee who, in a 10-page memo, laid out a case for why Google’s diversity programs weren’t working and how it might rethink its attempt to reduce the gender gap.

Could it be that Google is feeling just a little bit paranoid?

For all the talk about inclusiveness and diversity, here’s the reality:

If you’re not white or Asian, that means there is only a 5 percent chance you’re part of Google’s leadership team.

And while 31 percent of Google’s employees are women, only 20 percent of its technical employees are—and it was primarily the memo’s focus on this gender gap that seems to have caused the recent unpleasantness in Silicon Valley.

Yea, the person should have been canned. This wasn't an opinion that effected the treatment of the general public, it was a criticism of who Google should hire and for what position. The memo was for personal reasons to create discord in the office and publicly..not a conversation. Percentages don't mean crap when it comes to the best qualified person. I think Google is an over-bearing, politically biased, mega monster, and if you're working for them, you have to know that. Don't bite the hand that feeds you and then whine about it.

The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘BILLION’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ to keep spending YOUR tax money. A billion is a difficult number to comprehend. But one advertising agency did a good job of placing that figure into some perspective in one of its releases. Let us remember that one billion is one thousand millions.
A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
E. A billion dollars ago was 8 hours and 20 minutes ago, at the rate our government is spending them.
