Microsoft firm at centre of racist analogy row

A former employee at Microsoft’s streaming service Mixer has shared apparent details of the racism he experienced while working at the platform, which was shut down earlier this week.

Milan Lee, an ex-Community Acquisition Manager at Mixer, shared a blog describing his time at the business, where he alleged that he was singled out for being one of the few black employees at the company. He also added that there was inaction from upper level management when a racist analogy was used during a company meeting, reported Kotaku.
