I press X to doubt... Remember alot of this in the case is based on assertations by defendants without serious proof (IE voice recordings, video recordings, etc). Also an employee being racist is not reflective of the company as a whole. Not to mention you have to realize that in this day and age it would be very crazy to try something like that especially in such a huge way as getting caught would inevitable. Were not talking like this was from the 1960's, were talking about 2012. I highly doubt Musk even if he was a horrible racist would do it because he knows it would come to bite him and harm his margins in the end. It can come down to simple statistics when it comes to board rooms for instance.


EDIT: AP Report: https://apnews.com/article/business...an-americans-d74d7fc97fc5b0608c26015aa77d7c74

The $137,000,000 award was granted to Owen Diaz because he proved that the factory floor was racially segregated. EDIT: Hmm, I'm getting confused on the matter, that allegation is part of the new case.

The core fact has already been proven, pushed through the court, and a Jury of 12 agreed with the evidence. The secondary case being pushed by California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing because this Owen Diaz case proved a degree of systemic, higher-level racism... especially as many other African Americans started to step up after the Diaz case.

I'm not sure if you are aware of how solid the ground I'm standing on when I'm making these accusations. I'm quite serious about how bad the situation is for Tesla.

-----

This racism thing in Tesla is relatively new... news. People really only started to pay attention to it after Owen Diaz got so far with his case.

EDIT: The Department of Fair Employment and Housing isn't some no-name quack lawyer firm either. This is a legal arm of the state of California.

Case was tried in SF CA and a federal judge in January said the verdict is "extremely high" and a couple of weeks ago reduced it to $15 million.

I have read only a bit on the case so I went through a quick refresher. The basics against Tesla still are saying that it was some employees doing it and it is based on witness testimony (mostly aimed at a specific supervisor) and some graffiti. My problem with the arguments is that they are aimed at saying Tesla the company didn't do enough to stop it, not that they were responsible in the long run. Also I think its been appealed/being appealed as the reward for it was way outlandish. Also its likely the followup lawsuits are because people saw dollar signs and are trying to cash in. It will be interesting how those go. Its kinda like the Hot coffee lawsuit against McDonalds (Which was rightfully won, McDonalds was in the wrong) caused a bunch of followups against other fast food joints looking for money.

This is also why Tesla packed up its bags and left California and alot of other companies are as well.

The Tesla factory is literally segregated. Black workers on that line, white workers on another line.

Of course I'm going to wonder where Elon Musk got that idea from, and growing up in a literally segregated country (aka Apartheid) is my #1 guess for influence.

That short of crap has been dead in the USA (let alone California) for nearly a century, but in contrast was how Elon Musk's home country was organized when Musk was growing up.
So if the white workers are also segregated, why aren't you defending or complaining about that situation huh? You reek of victim mentality, if I was working at Tesla, I'd be thankful for having a damn job even if I was segregated IDGAF!, only colour I care about is Green!!! $$$

He has said he wants free speech in twitter, basically means, rascist bigoted possibly neo nazi bullshit. Let's hope not eh.
Have you seen the crazy people constantly attacking white people on that toxic site but nothing ever happens? Huh answer me that. It's just the same pathetic buzzwords over & over again.

So, uhm, I don't quite believe this has to be spelled out, but fighting segregation means fighting it on all fronts. You can't remove a wall between two or more groups without that wall disappearing for all of them. Also, segregation typically also typically means preferential treatment of one group. I don't know if that's the case here, but if it was, going off history and statistics the group given preferential treatment was most likely white workers - in which case it wouldn't exactly make sense to fight for their rights beyond the general leveling of the field, would it?

Have you seen the crazy people constantly attacking white people on that toxic site but nothing ever happens? Huh answer me that. It's just the same pathetic buzzwords over & over again.
Can you show me even a single example of someone notable displaying broad anti-white sentiments, applying to "white people" as a group, and that isn't an understandable expression of frustration from a member of a systematically oppressed group? I'd love to see that, if you can find it.

Did you know Ivy league schools are racist towards Asians, they let in too many blacks to meet a diversity quota, I wonder if we should boycot the NBA, NFL and other sports that aren't using the quotation system and instead are using the system.where the best qualified person gets in.
