Silicon Valley CEO: Middle America is Violent, Racist, and a Sh*thole

by Amna El Tawil
A CEO of a Silicon Valley’s startup company TimeShare CMO made it perfectly clear what she thinks about middle America.
 
Melinda Byerley, the founder of TimeShare CMO, tweeted a screenshot of her Facebook post wherein she wrote about things that middle America would have to do to bring more jobs to the community.
 
Byerley premised her advice by stating that “one thing middle America could do is to realize that no educated person wants to live in a shithole with stupid people. Especially violent, racist, and/or misogynistic ones.”
 
According to her statement corporations don’t want to locate “call centers, factors, development centers, etc” because they must also deal with the fact that small towns “have nothing going for them. No infrastructure, just a few bars and a terrible school system.”
 
So basically, if you live in middle America and want to get a job, you must “clean up your act and make your town a place that people like us want to live in”, at least that’s what Melinda Byerley says.
 
The Daily Caller reports this Silicon Valley CEO assumes “no educated person wants to live in a shithole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “shithole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do not consider moving to the heart of America because “those towns have nothing going for them.”
