Yet another useless article about a non-existent 'problem'

In today's News Journal: In tech world, minorities remain quiet about lack of diversity.

In other words, the lack of diversity in the tech sector is a "problem."

But ... why?

Here's something that should absolutely not concern you:

About 1 percent of engineers at Facebook, Google and Twitter are black, and around 3 percent are Hispanic. For all the success of women like Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, and Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, men fill nearly 70 percent of jobs and more than 80 percent of technical positions at leading tech companies.

The article also notes the complaints of some minority tech workers about their "activism" on behalf of more diversity. They're concerned that they'll be seen as less serious or detract from doing the actual job.

Well, duh. Maybe that's because most people could really care less about superficial inanities that really have little to do with the product produced by such companies.
