Racial Turmoil At Meta As Company Favors Foreigners

Racial Turmoil At Meta As Company Favors Foreigners

By Joe Guzzardi

Meta Platforms, until October 2021 known as Facebook, is in turmoil. Infamous for its commitment to employing H-1B workers, and simultaneously undermining qualified U.S. tech workers’ careers, the Silicon Valley titan is finally getting its just rewards.

Sheryl Sandberg, a Facebook fixture for 14 years, and as Chief Operating Officer the No. 2 behind Mark Zuckerberg, will be leaving this fall. Some analysts have been long-critical of Sandberg, net worth $1.6 billion, and have pushed for at least two years for her ousting. Zuckerberg and Sandberg disagreed over Metaverse’s vision.

Since Sandberg’s COO replacement, Julian Oliver, has been named, her departure is unlikely to have further measurable negative effect on Meta. But, Oliver will have to assume the responsibility for pulling Meta out of the steady, deep decline the company is struggling with.

Meta Platform’s key Facebook products have grown old. The number of young people actively using Facebook and Instagram has drifted to TikTok which users see as more compelling. Today, TikTok, dominates the social media industry in screen time, and Amazon has become a leading player in the advertising industry.

Then, to the dismay of its shareholders, the Meta stock price’s plunge in recent weeks has slashed the market cap by about 50 percent to $529 billion from an all-time high, and has cut Zuckerberg’s net worth to about $84 billion. As of June 7, Meta stock has stabilized at $196 per share, 14 percent above its low for the year.

In February, Facebook agreed to pay $90 million to settle a privacy lawsuit which claimed that it impermissibly tracked users after they logged out, and sold their personal information to enrich the company. Along the same lines, in January, the British watchdog group, Financial Conduct Authority, sued Meta for $3.2 billion on behalf of individuals who used Facebook in the UK between 2015 to 2019. The lawsuit claims that Facebook made its users submit personal data in order to access the platform and thereby earned billions of dollars from the tactic, Reuters reported.

For Meta, the bad news keeps piling up. Qualified black applicants have charged Facebook with shutting them out of key positions because they aren’t a “culture fit,” a possible reference to the large number of Chinese and Indian H-1B visa employees on the staff. Multiple reports allege that hiring managers confirmed to black candidates during interviews that they “could do the job” before using the “culture-fit” excuse to reject the candidate.

Facebook pledges to add 30 percent more people of color in leadership positions by 2025, but it has a long way to go. Despite incessantly touting the company’s commitment to diversity, Facebook’s 2020 Diversity Report showed little progress. Blacks and Hispanics in key technical roles increased year-over-year, from 1 percent to 1.7 percent for blacks and from 3 percent to 4.3 percent for Hispanics. Moreover, since last summer, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is investigating bias claims against Facebook and has recently upgraded its inquiry into a systemic probe that could lead to broader charges.

Meta not only denies middle-management jobs to blacks and Hispanics. The company prefers cheaper, more subservient foreign-born H-1B workers to U.S. tech graduates, a constant in its hiring practices. Zuckerberg, both directly through his congressional testimony and also through FWD.us, the pro-amnesty group he created, staunchly supports higher immigration.

Last year, the Department of Labor and the Department of Justice settled employment discrimination suits against Facebook. Although the settlement sums were paltry for the tech giant, $4.75 million, a DOL civil penalty payable to the federal government and, from the DOJ, up to $9.5 million due the injured parties, Facebook should assume that the charges against it are a warning to clean up its anti-U.S. tech worker bias.

Meta needs a public relations overhaul. An easy place to begin would be to hire U.S. tech workers. Figuratively, Facebook’s image has taken a bigger hit than its net worth. With more than a half-trillion current net worth, even after the stock market blood bath, Meta Platforms/Facebook can afford to hire skilled U.S. tech workers.

Bill Bans Woke Bigotry In Florida Classrooms

Bill Bans Woke Bigotry In Florida Classrooms — Legislation strongly backed by Gov. Ron DeSantis is before the Florida legislature that would prohibit classroom instruction that contradicts these concepts:

  • No race is inherently superior to another race
  • An individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, does not bear responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex
  • An individual should not be made to feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race

The legislation is called the Stop the Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act (WOKE)

Pennsylvania’s legislature should do the same. Frankly, all legislatures should do this.

Only racist bigots can oppose it.

Freedom Is Bedrock Of The West

Freedom Is Bedrock Of The West — The establishment through it’s government agencies, mockingbird media and comped academia is seeking to destroy truth, justice and the American Way to bring forth a New World Feudalism.

One of the ways is promoting the untrue claim that America — and Western Civilization itself — is founded on slavery. The strategy via means like the objectively false 1619 Project follows the principle articulated by noted Nazi Joseph Goebbels that “if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Fortunately, as Goebbels qualified: “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

And the truth is being told at places like here and Patriot.Online and many others.

A great rebuttal to the “West is a bunch of slave owners” lie can be found in  Drieu Godefridi‘s article Enslavement of the Black by the White: ‘The Bedrock of the West’? at Gatestone Institute. Check it out.

BLM Defends Racist Cuban Regime

BLM Defends Racist Cuban Regime — To those “Black Lives Matter” a-holes defending Cuban communism we’d like to send this quote from progressive hero Che Guevara:

“The ***** is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”

AASA Is Racist; School Choice Now

AASA Is Racist; School Choice Now — The professional association for school administrators is promoting racism under the guise of “anti-racism”.

The American Association of School Administrators — or as it now strangely and stupidly calls itself AASA, The School Superintendents Association — is encouraging dividing children by race and putting artificial hobbles on those it places in the divisions.

An example is its promotion of single tracking in math. The AASA claims that children of light pigmentation or of Asian descent do better in math, hence letting the kids advance according to their ability, and parents’ wishes, is somehow unfair.

Listen to Lily Talcott, deputy superintendent in the Ithaca City School District (NY) explain it starting at the 19 minute mark.

If you think you can stomach other examples of racist child hate disguised as virtue signaling listen to the entire podcast.

Or just take our word. Life is short.

You really want your kids to be forever burdened due to the sense of aesthetics and selfishness of people like Lilly Talcott? Keep supporting public schools.

The disadvantage “Black” kids face is that 72 percent of them are raised in homes without fathers. Bring the fathers back and dark faces start appearing in Algebra 1.

Racism is dividing people into races. It becomes acute when you start saying these artificial constructs should be treated differently.

Keeping a child from achieving because of his skin color is racism as is insisting that it is skin color that keeps such achievement from happening.

This is what Lilly Talcott and the ASAA are doing.

Racism ends when one recognizes that skin pigmentation is meaningless and that “Black” and “White” are unnecessary adjectives for the word “people”.

Regardless, get your kids out of public schools. They are run by fools.

Recognizing Racists For Juneteenth

Recognizing Racists For Juneteenth — Tomorrow is Juneteenth, the new federal holiday — proposed by President Trump, by the way — that literally honors the heroic white Republican men who marched a thousand difficult miles to free blacks held in bondage in Democrat-controlled cities in 1865.

Racism, unfortunately, remains.

Here is how to recognize a racist.

  • Support for Planned Parenthood, an organization created to eliminate Blacks.
  • Support for gun control i.e. disarming Blacks.
  • Opposition to school choice i.e. keeping Blacks poorly educated.

Enjoy tomorrow.

Tim Scott Gets It With Response To Biden

Tim Scott gets it. The Republican senator from South Carolina gave the response to Joe Biden’s Quisling-like claims as to why we must surrender freedom so the rich get richer. Scott says what needed to be said and we link to it.

Republicans are not necessarily the good guys but the Democrats are certainly the bad ones.

What White Supremacists Say

What White Supremacists Say — Racism is dividing people into “racial” categories and saying the law may treat those in some categories different. This is vile and inexcusable.

Some with light pigmentation deny the humanity of those with dark skin. They are white supremacists. They are bad people.

Here are the tells that show if a person is a white supremacist:

  • They believe those with dark skin are are too stupid to get a drivers license.
  • They believe minority neighborhoods need abortion clinics.
  • They claim that school choice is not necessary because the public schools are great even when it is obvious they are not.
  • They say that gun restrictions are needed in cities with large black populations.

Do what you can to keep those who hold these views out of power. There is no such thing as “Black people. There is no such thing as “White people”. There are only people. Some people are good. Some people are bad. Most of us are just average.

The bad ones, though, want to divide us into racial categories. Yes, this includes leaders of both political parties, and those who find themselves in soft, high six-figure jobs in institutions.

A divided people enables the corrupt in their pursuit of power and wealth.

Joe Biden Racist Supporters Now Include Richard Spencer

Joe Biden Racist Supporters Now Include Richard Spencer — Democrat Presidential contender Joe Biden has a long and troubled history of racism. He wrote laws that penalized possession of crack cocaine, the drug of choice for poor blacks, far more harshly than powered cocaine, the then drug of choice for hip whites.

Some irony here considering the photos of his son Hunter found on the laptop he forgot he left at The Mac Shop, a Wilmington, Del. computer repair store.

White privilege exemplified

He crafted the 1994 Crime Bill — which until 2015 he called the Biden Crime Bill — that gave life-long sentences to those convicted of minor crimes.

The injustice wasn’t rectified until President Trump signed The First Step Act on Dec. 21, 2018.

Joe Biden referred to former Ku Klux Klan leader Robert Bryd as a friend and mentor, and was a close ally of White supremacist Democrat Sen. James Eastland of Mississippi.

Even other Democrats have pointed out Biden’s troubling past — at least when it seemed opportune.

And now Joe Biden has gotten the endorsement of racist Richard Spencer, who was among the White nationalists that President Trump said “should be condemned totally” for the Charlottesville riots.

You know that President Trump unambiguously condemned the neo-Nazis and White nationalists right?

Racist Planned Parenthood is also a huge supporter of Biden, as are the those who seek to trap poor kids in horrific schools by opposing school choice.

If you are a racist, Biden is your guy.
