NYT: "If You Work in Silicon Valley, Odds Are You’re a White Man"

At the time of the 2012 election, I pointed out that the Obama Coalition was a fissiparous mishmash of the fringes of American society that could only be kept from turning on each other by constant demonization of the core of American society -- Straight White Married Gentile Men -- as the embodiment of all that is wrong with America. 

From the NYT:
If You Work in Silicon Valley, Odds Are You’re a White Man
MAY 28, 2014

Claire Cain Miller

It’s good to be a man, particularly a white or Asian one, in Silicon Valley. 
Otherwise, not so much. 
The tech industry has been known to have a serious diversity problem. But on Wednesday, we got a peek at just how bad it is. Google released statistics about the make-up of its workforce that showed that while men and Asian people are overrepresented, women and black people are drastically underrepresented as compared to the overall United States workforce. ...
Read more about Google’s demographics on The Times’s Bits blog.

Now, if you go there, you find Claire Cain Miller's headline is inflammatorily distorted:
Of its United States employees, 61 percent are white, 2 percent are black and 3 percent are Hispanic. About one-third are Asian — well above the national average — and 4 percent are of two or more races. Of Google’s technical staff, 60 percent are white, 1 percent are black, 2 percent are Hispanic, 34 percent are Asian and 3 percent are of two or more races. 
In the United States workforce over all, 80 percent of employees are white, 12 percent are black and 5 percent are Asian, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

This last set of data probably lumps most Hispanic workers into white, but in any case whites are somewhat underrepresented at Google and Asians are vastly over-represented, just like you and I imagined.
   
Let's not be surprised that Silicon Valley reporter Claire Cain Miller has messed up again. She's responsible for three recent anti-white man fiascos in the NYT: GoldieBlox, Glimpse, and Github, in each of which she got played by some adventuress to promote her career as part of the War on Silicon Valley Bro Culture.

The War on White really seems to be intensifying, right before our eyes, in real time.

Do 'they' sense that a window of opportunity may be beginning to close, that if they don't finish the job soon then they may face some sort of resurgence? That they really need to make sure White is completely destroyed, soon, otherwise they just won't be able to relax? Sure feels that way.

She's right that Google and Facebook would rather flood America with Pakistani immigrants as hires than hire American women, even though the cost of this strategy includes cutting Sheryl Sandberg a billion dollar check.

Steve Sailer has documented the historical role that women played in computing, but today's silicon valley companies want nothing of this.

Whiskey said...

Claire Miller did not get played. Like nearly ALL White women from the middle and upper class she ... wait for it ... HATE HATE HATES beta male White guys. Which is easily 90% of White guys.

Really, the anti-White guy glue WORKS because most White women HATE HATE HATE White guys. For not being sexy enough. That's the one sin women don't forgive. Ever.

War on White is just War on White guys. White women? They're not the target. Heck they are the dishers out. In their view its justified because White guys became icky beta males about as sexy as a bowl of cold oatmeal. Not like the Bomb Brothers.

Guaranteed, if 90% of White guys acted all Checheny, well "Chicks Dig Chechens" and you'd see an abrupt end to World War White Guy.

Should we have any sympathy for those white/Asian males in Silicon Valley? They have high enough IQs to know what's going on, and the prestige to speak truth. But, judging from their campaign donations and voting patterns, they're about as left wing as your typical member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Why sympathize with such people?

Is she implying that Google's workforce makeup should mirror that of the country as a whole? Why should that be? Perhaps different groups have different preferences.

I actually think Google does well wrt white women programmers. I worked near two when I contracted there, though they were both fresh out of school. Come to think of it I don't think I saw older women /programmers/ there, or if I did it was at lunchtime and I figured they were non-engineering. White women programmers have been rare elsewhere, though not non-existent. They've all been young, for what that's worth (I've heard they tend to leave before men do). Non-white (east-asian) women were about par at Google (though I don't recall seeing Indian women, not many Indian men either) and everywhere else Indians have been way /over/represented, with women being only somewhat fewer. Google was astounding for the quantity of white men though - I can remember thinking "so this is where they all are!"

@Hepp:

Am not the anon you asked, but am also a white programmer in Silicon Valley:

Outside of the Valley I've run into one near-whispered, brought-up-short complaint against Indians, but in the Valley there are too few whites together at a time to let you feel comfortable doing that. Plus it just isn't the culture; here it really is much more diverse than elsewhere, and programmers are mostly young and feeling invulnerable anyway.

Square that for Google - well plenty are middle aged (really!) but, if any thought that way everyone would be too smart to say anything, and they live in a virtual walled garden; their brains, money, treatment, assured futures - they've got the Google stamp - (not to mention buses, heh) carry them right above the common people, for real. Now this is speculation or imagination, I never spoke to any of them about this, but the sense of being special and 'in the world but not of it' is very strong there. Larry Page's dreaming out loud about making his own country should give you a taste.

But of course there are lots who do online - Mencius Moldbug, famously.

Women will push quotas over merit only up to the point they start losing. A real world example happened in Sweden a few years ago. Despite the fact that 60% of university students were women, feminists were upset that several areas (STEM) were still male dominated. They demanded affirmative action to help reach to supposed “fair” ratio of 50/50 in these areas. The men agreed on condition that the same rules would apply to female dominated areas of study. The dumb-ass feminists figured any area of study dominated by women was worthless and just of sign of patriarchy so they agreed. Adjustments would be made for admissions with the goal of bringing each area of study towards a 50/50 gender ratio.

Say what you will about low IQ blacks, none are stupid enough to discuss introducing a quota system based on population percentage into the NBA.

Jews howled with indignation when WASPs used to limit their entry into Ivy League schools based on their percentage of the population.

The problem with Swedish feminists is that their ideological brainwashing did not allow them to understand that they were already in the dominant position. When all the adjustments were made, 95% of the affirmative action changes were made in favor of men, into such fields as veterinary and human medicine, dentistry, and psychology. It ends up very few women applied for the male dominated fields, so not many adjustments were possible in this direction. Did the feminists stand up and cheer the fact that Swedish society was taking a giant step towards gender equality promised land of 50/50? No, of course they didn’t; they howled in indignation that hard working women were getting pushed aside to make room for lazy, shiftless, penis-wielding, douchebag men. They sued to cancel the self same affirmative action program they themselves pushed through a few years before.

Women are very conscientious and detail-oriented. We are good book studiers...but are not necessarily doers.

Society has changed to favor that rule-abiding, book studier personality...versus the more rogue explorer/creator type.

This is due to:
- Asians
- Testing
- Asian overseas kids taking university spots
- Impossible/Unlikely to go to university as an adult
- Can't get a foot in the door without a worthless degree of some kind
etc etc etc

Imagine you take all the asians out of the college system. That would free up tons of science spots for white men of a lower testing category, but higher creativity "let's build this!" caliber.

What those numbers tell us is that whites as a whole are slightly under-represented in Silicon Valley. African- and hispanic-americans (including white hispanics) are heavily under-represented while asians are heavily over-represented.

If you discount the jews (who are also heavily over-represented especially at the top level) and other middle-easterners (who are classified as "white" by the US census) it becomes clear that whites of full european ancestry are significantly under-represented in silicon valley.

I think it would be very revealing if the composition of whites in Silicon Vallēy is broken down by ethnicity. Just looking at the names/bios it is clear that jews are the most over-represented white ethnicity. Anglos and scandinavians seem to hold their own while german, slavic, italian names are few and far between compared to their share of the general population.

Note that Steve Jobs of Apple had a syrian muslim biological father, the founders of Google are a russian jew and an american half-jew, the current CEOs of Microsoft and Adobe are indian, the founders and CEOs of Oracle ænd Facebook are both jewish, the founder of eBay is iranian...

I have a woman friend recently promoted past her competency to manage a more tech-oriented group than she's dealt with before. Her Facebook page was chock-full of horror stories of grueling classwork and how the guys working for her weren't nice.

She's the first woman in this group, and she wasn't promoted from within the group. Her husband, a good friend, has confided that she's an emotional mess and is wondering if she did the wrong thing in accepting the position. Corporate HR has been very supportive, to the point of counselling her to be more authoritarian with her staff until they toe the line. She denies that she's the company's canary in the coal mine.

I disagree. Women may pay exquisite attention to details when it comes to people and social interactions, but I have never noticed them to be especially detail oriented when it comes to physical things. They also do not seem particularly observant when it comes to physical things. How many women notice a change in the routine sounds that a car or a house makes, and realize that this change in sound is telling them something - that something is malfunctioning? Attention to detail is very important in any kind of technical work, and in my experience men are better at it than are women.

""NYT: "If You Work in Silicon Valley, Odds Are You’re a White Man""

As someone who's been in Silicon Valley for a long time, this is bizarre. I think this entire story is based on a few large companies, like Google and Facebook, releasing their diversity stats. If you look at the aggregate, Silicon Valley, like LA, has become a world city. In a lot of engineering groups whites (of any sex) are very thin, or entirely absent, on the ground. There are usually still some older ones around.

Like Steve's cocker spaniels, too much of a good thing ruins it. The overall quality of engineering teams is no longer what it used to be. I'd not go so far as to claim that it's due to the raw material, though sometimes I have my suspicions. The whole "world churn" culture often keeps velocity of team thinking, expertise, competence, "know how", and all that down at some lower common denominator than what it once was.

If nothing else, I miss people actually being able to write a multi-page document. One reason PowerPoint is so popular is you don't need to be able to write english well. Just list a few bullet points.

Ed said...

I'm really getting disturbed by the media. This story has now spread all over with the typical refrain of how horrible it is that Google has no diversity. It is only in the comment section that folks push back against this tripe with links to data, personal stories etc.

Huh? This does not compute!

You must not be familiar with silicon valley demographics:

"...A 1999 study...reported that a third of Silicon Valley scientists and engineers were immigrants..."

That was back in 1999:

Today:

"Asian workers now dominate Silicon Valley tech jobs",San Jose Mercury News, 11/30/2012:

"Asian-Americans make up half of the Bay Area's technology workforce, and their double-digit employment gains came from jobs lost among white tech workers...

The dramatic shift in the changing composition of the high-tech workforce represents a new generation of homegrown and imported workers...

..."It's the new world -- a world in which whites are not the majority," said Jan English-Lueck, associate dean of the college of social sciences at San Jose State University...

The percentage of Asian tech workers grew from 39 percent in 2000 to just more than 50 percent in 2010 in Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco counties combined

At the same time, white workers saw their more than 50 percent majority of tech jobs in 2000 fall to nearly 41 percent..."



Lots of interesting demographic maps here:

"These Maps Reveal The Racial Makeup Of San Francisco And Silicon Valley", Businessinsider, Sep 4 2013:

See "This is technically Silicon Valley, though many consider San Francisco to be a part of "The Valley." (More on SF later.) Asians over-index in the valley."

They'll strike a deal that everyone except essential programmers must be NAMs. The administrative assistants, the cleaning people, the gardeners, everyone in HR, all the sales force, the security people, etc. The goal will be to preserve the essential positions for Jews and cooperative Asians, while NAMifying everything else.

How do I know this? Because they've done it already throughout much of Corporate America. Regarding support positions, the following is true. When there aren't enough black females, the suits resort to black males. When there aren't enough black males, they resort to Hispanics. When there aren't enough Hispanics, they resort to white women. Straight white Christian men are out because Hitler. Of course, this is presented as Ayn Rand meritocracy.

Part time call center worker or worked from home and so forth. In fact Mexicans from rural Mexico might be doing pushcarts in Baja California which has a lot of the Mexican aerospace industry than LA in the future. Mexico is developing more still very poor rural areas though. In fact Baja might have more professional jobs in cities like Monterrey than Imperial Ca or Yuma Az or Brownsville Texas, its just the pay is lower. Maybe, that why the other than Mexican is the bigger group now than the Mexican since Mexico looks good compared to Central America.

The one positive of Asians taking over the tech industry and top college slots, is the complainers are eventually going to have to stop obsessing about white males!

In all seriousness, I do worry about the dominance of Asians in western STEM university slots and companies.

I like and respect Asians, but I think we as whites are absolutely insane to provide training to so many Asians.

The reality is Asians, particularly Chinese have an extremely powerful attachment to their own traditional culture...when it comes down to it their first loyalty is to Chinese Civilization.

It's interesting that westerners are so often accused of being 'racist' when the reality is other cultures are far more racially/ethnically oriented.

Our technical elites will be focussed more on the well being of China, much as our media elite is fixated on Isreal...There are already lots of problems of Chinese/Israelies passing on trade secrets, military intelligence to their co-ethnics.

It's nice to have some international presence at a college, but when you hear of the levels of Asians at elite schools, we're no longer talking about a few - we're looking at them being the majority in the not too distant future.

It's all quite strange, these institutions were built up over centuries by Europeans, and we basically gave them to outsiders in a matter of 20-30 years!

I don't think the US could get through an event like WWII or a Great Depression at this point, it's just too divided now, there is no common ethnicity , outlook or cause. It's been ruined. Its going to be bad news for everyone, not only the white majority.
