Google ‘Diversity Strategist’ Accused Jews of ‘Insatiable Appetite for War’

Posted on | June 2, 2021 | Comments Off on Google ‘Diversity Strategist’ Accused Jews of ‘Insatiable Appetite for War’

He got hired to fill a quota for Jew-haters, I guess:

Google’s global diversity leader apologized privately on Tuesday night to the company’s Jewish employees for a blog post in which he argued that Jews have an “insatiable appetite for war,” but the tech company remains mum on the controversy.
Kamau Bobb, Google’s global lead for diversity strategy and research, sent an email apology to a listserv of Jewish Google employees — known within the company as the “Jewglers” — and said his “hurtful” statements about Jews were part of a ham-handed attempt to criticize Israel’s military action. . . .
Google itself has yet to offer any official comment on the dust-up, nor has the tech giant, whose CEO Sundar Pinchai issued a lengthy note last summer detailing his commitment to “racial equity,” made any public remarks on the recent spate of anti-Semitic attacks.
Bobb told Google’s Jewish employees that his anti-Semitic tirade was “intended as a critique of particular military action” and apologized for “crudely” characterizing all Jews.
“[T]he world is leaving us all feeling unsafe and unsettled right now. i certainly don’t want to contribute to that,” he added. “[N]one of this changes or excuses the words i wrote – but i am deeply sorry for them.”
Bobb’s 2007 blog post, titled “If I were a Jew,” was reported by the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday. In the post, Bobb offered his thoughts on how Jews should view the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself,” he wrote in the Nov. 30, 2007, post on his personal blog, where he was still actively publishing as recently as April 2021.

He won’t be fired. No major corporation ever fires a “diversity” hire. You may think that’s sarcasm, but ask around. Any honest corporate lawyer will tell you what “diversity” means in practice. It is essentially a code-word for a preemptive defense against discrimination claims. The function of “diversity” is to enable the executives to claim that, because the company has a certain percentage of women and minorities in their workforce, therefore can’t be guilty of illegal discrimination. So if a disgruntled female or minority employee files a discrimination lawsuit, the bosses point to the numbers — tabulated on a spreadsheet by the HR department — as proof of their innocence. It’s the same reason you see all these corporations acting “woke.” You think these million-dollar-a-year corporate executive types really give a crap about LGBTQ rights or BLM or “climate change”? Bullshit. They’re all about the Benjamins, baby. They just have to talk “progressive” to keep their money-machine rolling.

Y’all just ain’t cynical enough to understand the hustle.
