Intel has decided to throw $300 million at diversity in tech nonsense. One of the recipients of that money will be Anita Sarkeesian. Intel’s supposed goal is to have Intel’s US employees reflect the racial and gender makeup of the US population by 2020:
Assuming that Intel is in anywhere serious about its goal of “full representation” in its workforce by 2020, there is only one way to do it. Intel is going to have to fire a lot of people. Of course, white men will be fired, but they won’t be allowed to sue Intel for discrimination. However, white men won’t be the only group fired en masse from Intel. A disproportionate number of Indian American and Asian American men work at Intel compared to the percentage of Indian American and Asian American men in the general US population. The difference in percentages is likely to be greater than the percentage of white men that work at Intel compared to the US population. While Intel will have to fire lots of white men to reach its goal by 2020, Intel will have to fire a lot more Indian American and Asian American men. This is going to be a real problem for Intel. Indian American and Asian American men fired by Intel will have no trouble bringing a massive class action racial discrimination law suit against Intel.
It’s also possible that Intel will have to fire some of its Indian American and Asian American female employees. The tech industry has a disproportionate number of foreign born women working in it compared to the general population so it’s likely the same is true at Intel. Not only would that would add to the racial discrimination lawsuit, but it would be a visible battle between immigrant women trying to make a better life in America vs. pampered rent seeking American women.
Overall, this is just another example of the war on Indian American and Asian American men working in tech. Intel can’t just go after white men to reach its goals. Intel has to pull the trigger on firing Indian American and Asian American men which will show all of its talk about diversity is garbage.
