Not that surprising considering he sent it to the whole company

upset that he wrote and sent it to everyone?
or...
upset that he was fired for speaking his thoughts on the matter?

Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom of consequences. If you want to post a company-wide memo that conflicts directly with your company's core values, you can definitely expect some consequences.

He sent it out over a month ago internally. He was only fired after media reported on it.

I also think he was fired just for the irony.

As a general rule I don't agree with firing people over their opinions, however wrong and hostile they are.

No matter how true it may be, you just dont send something like that by email at work.

There is a better venue.

Political correctness is in the extreme though, its just sanitization with the fundamentalists winning.

There are insane rules in the offices and even construction sites these days. Apparently asking for a phone number is sexual assault?

Thankfully there are some larger laws that save us photographers from going to jail every time we take a photo, but its still very scary out there.

Bullying, racism, bigotry, etc are all wrong and dumb, people are more dumb than special. But we are all so special though right?

97% of people believe they are Above Average.(think about that for a moment haha).


It has nothing to do with PC, work is the wrong place to send that email.

And what greg said.

It should be pointed out that it was not emailed by the author around Google. He posted it internally and it was sent around by others that came across it.

Still a stupid thing to post, but he wasn't the one that spread it around.
