       Google engineer says he was fired for fighting racism sexism

Arne Wilberg (who until his termination of employment was a recruiter for YouTube) has filed a lawsuit against Google, accusing the tech giant of bias against white and Asian men.

Google has been sued by a former YouTube employee for allegedly pressuring recruiters to only look for female and Latina applicants and that the video-sharing platform had a year ago stopped hiring White and Asian males for technical positions.

Wilberg said his manager sent an email to his team past year, telling them to only accept candidates from "historically underrepresented groups" for a particular job opening.

"We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity", its statement read.

Further, she stated that the company is not hesitant in accepting that they look for a diverse pool of qualified candidates for open roles, and this helps them in hiring the best people, improve culture and build better products. The conflagration briefly engulfed Google's own offices, turning the workspace into a polarized war zone. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying merely said in Beijing Friday that China urges the USA to follow trade rules.

Student Arrested With Loaded Gun At Desert Rose High School
Bill Meyer said Wednesday a student told his son he would bring a gun to school and he had a hit list and his son was on it. Several of students who heard the comments reported them to school officials, who called the police.

The lawsuit describes several instances in which Wilberg says he raised concerns with supervisors and human resources executives only to allegedly be retaliated against.

The Wall Street Journal said that Wilberg's coworkers corroborated his story and said that Youtube's hiring initiatives were minority quota based and that some recruiters complained that this practice was unfair. California labor law prohibits refusing to hire employees based on characteristics like race or gender. In the meantime, Google has to walk a narrow line: How can the company signal the urgency of being inclusive without setting targets? The suit claims that one Google recruiter complained that managers spoke about black people as if they were objects. Wilberg alleges that one black engineer reported that she was uncomfortable only being asked to interview black candidates. Miley tweeted. "Save me the dogwhistle lawsuits and fake indignation".

The punitive measures would level the unfair playing field that has persisted for years, and make it easier for American companies to expand and hire workers, Trump said. Wilberg claims that he made multiple complaints to managers about YouTube's hiring process and escalated these complaints to superiors at Google before being fired last November. Many have adopted policies and programs created to encourage more balanced hiring, not only to right past discrimination but for their own economic advantage: According to management consultancy McKinsey, diverse companies deliver better financial results.

Shemla's analysis found that there is often a mismatch between an organization's diversity policy and the company's goals or between the policy and the way it is implemented.
