LinkedIn Staffers Go All-Lives-Matter During 'Dumpster Fire' Meeting on Racism

The highly professional social network’s internal Wednesday town hall on racial injustice looked more like what you'd see in a Facebook comments section.

LinkedIn prides itself on being the highly professional, troll-free antithesis to all other social-media platforms. But on Wednesday, the company’s own internal meetings looked more like a “dumpster fire” Facebook comments section than anything on the company’s famously civil website.

Earlier this week, the career networking website announced that it would hold a virtual global town hall to address the nationwide social unrest sparked by the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd. The meeting was billed as an event to discuss racial inequality by “reflecting on our own biases, practicing allyship, and intentionally driving equitable actions.”

“We’ll spend most of our time together in open discussion, so please consider bringing questions or experiences you’d like to share,” read the invitation email to staff.

LinkedIn employees followed those instructions precisely. The results were a disaster.

Throughout the meeting, which was conducted by videochat and featured a sidebar where employees could leave comments, several anonymous staffers shared opinions echoing the detractors and skeptics of the Black Lives Matter movement. Several of these commenters criticized LinkedIn’s position on diversity hiring, equating such practices with racism against white people.

Nevadans gather for 'Reopen Nevada' rally at state office building

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — On Saturday, hundreds of people gathered to protest Governor Sisolak’s response to COVID-19 and the shutdown of our state. A group called “Operation Nevada” organized protests in Carson City and Las Vegas.

The group is calling for an end to the stay-at-home order and is demanding a recall of Governor Sisolak. Most of the protestors at the Grant Sawyer Building were not wearing masks, nor standing six feet apart.

Some of the protestors 8 News Now spoke to say the way Governor Sisolak has responded to the virus is an overreaction.

“This virus is not that bad, it’s not worse than viruses we’ve had for years and we’re treating it like it’s the plague,” said Linda Cannon, Vice Chair of the Clark County Republican Party. “The real thing is that it’s an assault on our economy and our rights, and he has overstepped his boundaries.”

Many protesters want the governor to reopen the state and let people go back to work. This week, Governor Sisolak said setting a reopening date will depend on widespread testing, social distancing and health risk assessments.

“I think he’s making the wrong decisions, and I think that we should start taking back our country,” said protester Ralph Townsend. “We’ve closed down the economy, are we nuts?”

8 News Now reached out to Governor Sisolak’s office for a statement on the protests. We have not yet heard back.
