In early June, dutifully doing its part to virtue signal along with the rest of the world, Cisco Systems hosted an “all hands on deck” meeting on race, hosted via videoconference. . .Several people spoke out online against Black Lives Matter during these online forums. For example, one employee wrote: “Black lives don’t matter. All lives matter,” while another wrote that BLM “reinforces racism”. A third employee commented: “People who complain about racism probably have been a racist somewhere else to people from another race or part of systematic oppression in their own community!”
If only white employees were fired, is this an example of systemic racism?
If the company fails to host similar seminars on how lives of people with other complexions matter, would that be systemic racism?
Sounds like Cisco may be creating a hostile work environment based on race.
