Kobernyk da allora ha scritto un promemoria esponendo ciò che lo riguardava mentre lavorava per il colosso della Big Tech e ha detto “Tucker Carlson stasera” mercoledì che questo include razziale “dannoso” comportamento.
“Nel mio promemoria, I just tried to list different things that I encountered during my time at Google. Things that I didn’t think were right, that were disruptive and long-term damaging even for racial relations,” Egli ha detto. “So Google was basically undermining things it was supposed to improve.”
The ex-employee explained that writing down workplace worries was a commonly-used method of expression at Google, which his manager encouraged him to do after speaking out against equity training.
But after submitting his concerns in writing, Kobernyk was immediately asked to remove his document since it had been flagged as “non appropriato” e “offensive.”
“I ultimately refused to delete the document and that’s when Google fired me.”
“Verbally I was told that certain sections of the document were questioning living experiences of people of color of criticizing fellow employees or even that I was using the word ‘genetics’ in the racial context,” Lui ha spiegato.
Kobernyk said he was somewhat surprised Google took the extreme measure of letting him go when they had the opportunity to handle and “bury” the whole situation instead of allowing it to inflate.
