The Reverend Jesse Jackson is reportedly in San Jose today to demand technology companies be more inclusive. According to San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX:
Jackson wrote to tech companies including Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Hewlett Packard, Google and others earlier this year about the problem he sees saying, “Technology is supposed to be about inclusion, but sadly, patterns of exclusion remains the order of the day.”
You probably thought technology was supposed to be about innovation and invention. Nope. It’s all about “inclusion” or something.
In other words, Jackson is accusing Silicon Valley of excluding people from participation based on race and they better shape up or else the shakedown begins.
