Google training course for managers isn't colorblind

PJMediaThe lawsuit alleges that managers had to undergo a training course called "Inclusive Perf," which was required for some managers and optional for others. A handout from the course reportedly warned managers against "rewarding people when they exhibit values and practices that are part of the dominant, and either punishing or failing to reward people when they exhibit values that are outside the of the dominant cultural norm."

The handout also reportedly listed qualities valued by the "dominant white/male culture" such as objectivity, believing in meritocracy, and being colorblind toward race.

Yes, you read that correctly. There are myriad laws on the books -- like the Civil Rights Act -- demanding companies maintain colorblindness.

That training course right there will lose the suit for Google.
