Washington Post: A recruiter joined Facebook to help it meet its diversity targets. He says its hiring practices hurt people of color.. “Rhett Lindsey was so eager to work at Facebook, he applied for a job there three times. When he finally got the offer to become a recruiter for highly paid engineers, he says, he jumped at the chance to help the social network push for greater employee diversity in its ranks. Eight months later, in August 2020, Lindsey attended a virtual meeting to discuss the company‚Äôs goal of hiring more Black engineers. In the meeting, a White manager played a Drake song in the background whose chorus repeats the phrase ‘Where the [n-word]s be at?’ five times, according to videos of the incident reviewed by The Washington Post.”
