Cisco Employees Fired for “All Lives Matter” Posts

(Reclaim the Net) An undetermined number of employees from tech giant Cisco have been fired after comments made about the Black Lives Matter movement during a video conference involving the company’s CEO and other top executives.

In recent times, support of the Black Lives Matter movement has been suggested from the biggest corporations in the United States and beyond – including Cisco, the world’s largest networking company.

These campaigns have even been extended to large companies, who seek to support the causes with monetary contributions…

To demonstrate his commitment to change, Chuck Robbins, Cisco’s CEO, convened a video conference with Ford Foundation President, Darren Walker, and Equal Justice Initiative attorney and founder Bryan Stevenson, to discuss the country’s racial problems and indicate to employees what the position of the company is.

This conference was broadcast to more than 30,000 company employees. In it, Robbins announced a donation of $5 million and full support for the Black Lives Matter initiative. However, some employees expressed dissatisfaction with this decision.

Most of the complaints from employees were on the basis that “All Lives Matter” is a better [sentiment] to express than “Black Lives Matter”…

Employees suggested that promoting Black Lives Matter “reinforces racism.”
