2. Why more black engineers aren't being hired in Silicon Valley
from International Business Times
From Dec. 3:
When Joshua Mann set foot in SpaceX on the first day of his internship three summers ago, the scene was not entirely unexpected. "I'll be honest. When I got to SpaceX there weren't a lot of black engineers there," he said. "There was a feeling, did I really belong here?" Mann, at the time a 21-year-old Morehouse College student with a 3.96 GPA, had only two years of physics and pre-engineering classes under his belt, while most of the other interns had at least two years of engineering classes, which meant more hands-on lab experience.
