Uber’s Diversity Report References ‘Jewbers’ Among Other Seeming Racial Slurs

Ride sharing pioneer Uber has been getting plenty of bad publicity in recent weeks, leading to the #DeleteUber campaign. Perhaps they thought that releasing a company diversity report would be viewed positively and, in theory, it was a good idea. Their approach, however, was widely ridiculed online on Tuesday after the report was posted on their website. Whoever wrote the report made the call to make various puns about demographic groups, and it’s not going over well.  Arguably the most attention is going to the reference to “Jewbers.”

Others included “UberHue” for their outreach to the black community, and “Los Ubers” for Hispanics, because they seemingly don’t know any Spanish words.

As for the actual report:

  • 63.9% of Uber employees are men while 36.1% are women.
  • 49.8% are white, 30.9% are Asian, 8.8% are black, 5.6% are Hispanic, 4.3% are multiracial, and 0.6% are “other.”

There is no information in the report that indicates what percentage of the staff is part of the Jewber tribe.
