You seem rather confused by what I have written.

First you respond to my statement that people of South East Asian and Indian sub continent ethicilty excel in technology, yet neither of these areas have white supremacist governments by saying "Neither of those areas can have a white supremacist government as those areas are not white."

Well obviously they don't and that's the point. Srcasm always depends on context, and in the context of the original article, a whine about "white supremacism" in technology professions being the reason that not many non - white people get hired, the success of Indian and Asian people in the tech professions both in their own countries and in Europe, North America and Australia invalidate that argument.

Then when I say a person's cultural background may have an influence on whether they have the qualities to succeed in tech, you respond: "this is literally an example of how the industry is biased."

That just doesn't make any kind of sense whatsoever. A person's cultural background has a lot of influence on how their mind develops when young and it is the mideset, NOT skin colour that determines what feild they will excel in, because the mindset determines what they are interested in and will desire to succeed in.

In the UK we have a similar death of black and female workers on tech professions. You will probably immediately assume this is because of racist amnd sexist bias. WRONG. As school careers officers have reported it is because those groups simply do not desire to pursue careers in technology. Great efforts have been made by government to change this but with limited effect. People cannot be forced to be interested in what they are not naturally interested in.

If American liberals would start to see the whole problem instead of never getting past the skin colour of the person complaining, there might just be a chance of things improving.
