Facebook’s white male board under fire
Daily Caller ^ | 10:54 PM 04/05/2012 | Caroline May

Facebook, the most popular social networking site in America, is under fire from women’s groups because its board of directors consists entirely of white men.

With the company about to go public in May, advocates are beginning to pressure the company to diversify its leadership.

On Thursday the women’s rights group Ultraviolet began circulating a petition calling on Facebook to appoint female board members. According to the group, the lack of women is “nothing short of shameful.”

“Facebook owes it success and makes a ton of money off of its women users. Women are responsible for nearly two-thirds of the sharing that happens on the site. In addition, women account for more than 70% daily fan activity on the site which is a huge source of revenue for the company” said Ultraviolet co-founder Nita Chaudhary.

“Facebook has a problem and they need to solve it before they go public. Mark Zuckerberg should live up to his company’s mission statement and appoint at least one woman to the board today.”

In a letter to its 300,000 members, Ultraviolet pointed out that the majority of Facebook users (58 percent) are women. …

Facebook was created by the college boys who are its board of directors. If there was a woman in the founding group then she’d be on the board.

Putting a woman on the board would be an empty accomplishment as she would have done nothing to earn her place there.

Facebook was also created almost entirely by white men. How about this: women, you start your own website and then you can put whoever you want on the board.

They're not "wise." That's why we needed a "wise Latina" on the Supreme Court, and why the "Wise Latinas" have their own club and Facebook page.

I am a woman and I want any position or promotion offered to me to be based solely on individual merit not what gender or color I am. Equality is what the original women's movement was about not special treatment and the woman's movement today is an embarrassment to me.

I'd like to see these professional whiners put on the defensive with that question every time they pull this sh*t - exactly whats wrong with being a white guy?

Let em try to explain why people live today are responsible for alleged acts of their great great grandfathers.

Then they can explain why stereotyping non white males is a bad thing.

It’s very popular and successul, especially among women. Shareholders are happy. What benefit would be derived from wrecking a great board for the purpose of gender and racial beancounting?

None.

You'd think two of them would see the first one walk into it and be able to avoid the damn thing. Was it dark out? Or are they all blind?

Thanks Olog-hai.
...is under fire from women's groups because its board of directors consists entirely of white men.
And the IPO is when? Gosh, it's almost as if the company is being shaken down just prior to the big payday.

It’ll be like being a South African farmer if Bozo The Fraud takes the mantle in 2013. Maybe not so drastic, but who knows; Jews in France are targets all the time there.

“a South African farmer...”

Agreed.

My vote for the next board member is Mirlande Wilson of Maryland.

Where's Jesse Jackass and Al Sharptoon....soon to follow with a boycott, unless millions are paid, because there are not 15% blacks on the Board?

Facebook can be shut down, for all I care. (I don't know if drug deals and pimpin' go on there, so maybe blacks have no need for it).

Too bad her last name wasn’t Brawley, or a “’stripper’ Lacross victim” or something-—oops-—more like: fortunately for her, that if, Al Forktongue believed there was a magic ticket, she could have expected a dreary outcome either way; her lawyer though, being a humanitarian and all, will be famous for 2-3 months, long enough to get an appreciable new client base. She is less than a muppet in the big scheme of things, but she doesn’t know it, and that may be fortunate for her lawyer; smart people don’t take too kindly to being made fools of, or being manipulated for that matter.

None of the founders have donated to political campaigns enough to be tracked.

Their VP for privacy has donated nearly $50,000 to the DNC, another FB employee with no title mentioned donated over $30,000 to the DNC. Taken from opensecrets.org. Other than a few for Ron Paul, their employee donations strongly Democrat.

Mark Zuckerberg attends Obama's fundraisers here in the Bay Area, so I'm assuming he's a lib.

Chris Hughes, a gay, attended Obama's inauguration. Dunno about the others, but I don't imagine they're too different.
