Dear +Android

http://tools.android.com/recent/updatingsdkfromcommand-line … hasn't been updated in 4 years.

Did y'all move the command line tools stuff someplace else?

💖,
Erica

“We need to talk about slavery in America...because we never talked about it. I don’t think the great evil of American slavery was involuntary servitude and forced labor. I don’t think the great evil of American slavery was the way we made people work in fields. I think the great evil of American slavery was the narrative of racial difference we created to legitimate it. It was the ideology of white supremacy that we made up to make ourselves feel comfortable with slavery. Slavery existed all over the world, but most countries were societies with slaves...we became something unique. We became a slave society. We wanted to feel good while we owned human beings and this ideology of white supremacy, this narrative of racial difference, that was the great evil.”

That was a very enlightened speech by someone in touch with his Buddha-nature. Thank you for posting.

Dear +Larry Page,

The Confederate Flag is a painful reminder to many black people that there are those in the South who still very much wish the Confederate Army would have won the Civil War. They defend the actions of the Confederacy. They believe the Confederacy was in the right. If pressed, they'll say that no no, they don't wish slavery would have continued, that they believe in States Rights and Southern History, but they never finish those sentences. They never say that the states of the Confederacy were fighting for their right to continue with slavery in the face of the US Government outlawing the practice. They never say that the Southern history they so romanticize was built on the backs of black slaves. That flag flies every day in South Carolina as a symbol of those values, reminding black people in South Carolina of where their feelings stand in the hearts of their neighbors and leaders. That the pain of slavery and being reminded of it daily takes a back seat to "Southern Pride."

In October 2014, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley stated the following: "I can honestly say I have not had one conversation with a single CEO about the Confederate flag." (via http://www.vox.com/2015/6/18/8803661/charleston-sc-shooting-confederate-flag-statehouse)

Google has a data center in Moncks Corner, South Carolina. Please be the first to CEO to step up and say something. Tell Gov. Haley that the continued presence of the Confederate flag stands in the way of Google's continued presence in South Carolina. This is where you can not just talk about, but BE about diversity. Demonstrate that inclusion, that the feelings and history of black people in this country, in your company, are important to you. Please take this opportunity to lead, not only by word but also by deed.

Thanks,
Erica

Hey so a thing happened that I forgot to put here.

My last day at Google was May 1.

I start at my new job on May 18. I'll share more about that after I start and stuff. I'm pretty excited about it.

I did too :(. Amazing how many idiots could be concentrated in one place. Just as the article points out, privileged people just instinctively shut down once their fragile wall of excuses falls apart.

I will be talking about white fragility a bit here. I would normally not derail a conversation to this, but in this case white fragility is the topic.

Everyone wants to see themselves as a good person, and it's far easier to believe a lie, than it is to see what's really happening and feel like nothing you can do is sufficient. That makes people uncomfortable. It is good to be uncomfortable, because one should not be indifferent to the suffering of others.

Understanding the impact of every decision one makes is extremely difficult and many well-meaning people will make bad choices. This is still better than deliberately believing falsehoods to avoid caring.

Thanks Erica for sharing the article.

I made xooglers.slack.com. If you're an xoogler who'd like an invite, find some way to get me your email address (here, twitter, fb). If I don't know you a) I'm sorry and b) I'll figure out some way to do verification.
