Microsoft Employee Says Whites, Asians Discriminated Against

Messages posted by an unknown female Microsoft programmer in internal Yammer boards say that white and Asian men are being discriminated against.

To be clear, I am referring to the fact that senior leadership is awarded more money if they discriminate against Asians and white men. I have an ever-increasing file of white male Microsoft employees who have faced outright and overt discrimination because they had the misfortune of being born both white and male.

Microsoft’s 2018 demographic report shows that 55.1% of employees are Caucasian, 31.9% are Asian, and 73.4% are male. Personally, I think it’s a bit telling if you feel oppressed by more equality and diversity.

    “Personally, I think it’s a bit telling if you feel oppressed by more equality and diversity.”

    So their asian employees are opposed to more equality and diversity? I was always of the opinion that equal pay for equal work was just. To the extent people stray from that axiom, I think discussion is warranted.

      I could be wrong, but the message I got from this was that a bunch of white, male employees complained of discrimination because Microsoft is trying to hire more minorities. The report I linked to _does_ show slight pay differences though.
