Thought Purity Now!!!!!!
This is deeply disturbing, and anyone — or any business — who values ethics should be concerned.
Why is this? Because she was a part of the Bush administration? Because she is a Republican and we should hate Republicans? I mean, come on, isn’t Al Gore on Apple’s Board? He’s no saint!
No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that Dropbox would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual on their Board of Directors as they prepare for their IPO. There is no doubt that Condoleezza Rice is an extremely brilliant and accomplished individual, having obtained her Masters degree at only age 20 (and a number of other impressive accomplishments).
Choosing Condoleezza Rice for Dropbox’s Board is problematic on a number of deeper levels, and invites serious concerns about Drew Houston and the senior leadership at Dropbox’s commitment to freedom, openness, and ethics. When a company quite literally has access to all of your data, ethics become more than a fun thought experiment.
GENDER PAY GAP!
So we should celebrate a successful African-American woman being added to a big corporate Board of Directors, right? RIGHT?!?
Oh, she’s a Republican…never mind.
Remember, any opposition to a successful black American is rooted in #racism. We’re just using their playbook here.
As John Ekdahl points out in the above linked post, the prog fascists go out of their way to say this isn’t about partisanship then provide a laundry list of partisan reasons for their latest head hunt.
This is why we can’t play nice with these idiots anymore. They are intolerant bigots who will not stop until all are brought into line.
And they gotta go.
