Satya Nadella, the India-born executive of Microsoft, has criticized the brutality in Virginia at the white nationalist rally, claiming that there is no position in our society for the bigotry, bias, and senseless violence. “Microsoft has value for diversity, and requested workers to empathies with the hurt taking place around us,” Nadella claimed to the media in an interview.
“There is no spot for the bigotry, bias, and senseless violence in our society we saw in Virginia last weekend motivated by white nationalists,” he claimed in a note addressed to his workers at the Redmond-based company. “It is in particular an important time to persist to be linked with people, and learn as well as listen from experiences of each other,” Nadella further claimed in the memo, actually addressed to senior directors.
“As I have claimed that all over Microsoft, we will be together with those who are standing for optimistic modification in the societies where we work, live, and serve. In concert, we must hold our communal humanity, and seek to make a civilization that is filled with empathy, respect, and opportunity for all,” he further added. His note comes as various high-profile managers, comprising the leaders of drugmaker Merck and Intel, give up a government advisory board. Some of these are in protest of earlier serious response to the violence of the President Donald Trump.
“Unite the Right” march had been organized to object in opposition to the projected elimination of a statue of General Robert E Lee. General Robert E Lee ordered the pro-slavery Confederate forces at the time of the Civil War in America. Violence busted out after they were encountered by anti-racism teams and later a car caught into one team protesters for anti-racism in Charlottesville. Trump had held both sides responsible for the lethal violence.
Tim Cook, the chief executive of Apple, and Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, also criticized Trump over his reply to the assemblies. “I oppose with the President of the U.S., Donald Trump, and all others who think that there is an ethical correspondence between Nazis and white supremacists, and those who disagree to resist by standing against for human rights,” Cook claimed.
