Yes, Digital Realty CEO Bill Stein’s “Jewish only” hiring practice is illegal.

Digital Realty is violating US laws that prohibit ethnic and religious discrimination.

Background investigations into senior executives at Digital Realty reveal a “Jewish only” hiring policy directed by CEO, Bill Stein and likely outside pro-Zionist groups. The racist policy is being carried out by Chief Human Resources Officer Cindy Fiedelman. Ms. Fiedelman is overseeing a strict racist policy of allowing only Jewish employees in the senior executive positions at Digital Realty.

Of course, the policy of restricting the highest paid positions to Jewish employees is illegal and a direct violation of Title VII civil rights laws that have been on the books for 55 years.

It’s no coincidence that today, all nine of Digital’s senior officers are Jewish. Considering Jewish Americans makeup only 1% of the US workforce, Digital’s decision to hire only Jewish Americans for its leadership roles is a bad business decision. Digital Realty is fishing from a tiny pond, able to hire 1% of available candidates means settling for less than the best employees.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal law that protects employees against discrimination based on certain specified characteristics: race, color, national origin, sex, and religion. Under Title VII, an employer may not discriminate with regard to any term, condition, or privilege of employment. Areas that may give rise to violations include recruiting, hiring, promoting, transferring, training, disciplining, discharging, assigning work, measuring performance, or providing benefits. 


Title VII – SEC. 2000e-2. [Section 703]

(a) Employer practices

It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer –

(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or

(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees or applicants for employment in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Title VII applies to employers in both the private and public sectors that have 15 or more employees.

It’s important to note that the former head of HR at Digital Realty was Ellen Jacobs. Ms. Jacobs is Jewish. It took more than a year to find her replacement who turned out, of course, to be Jewish. Being Jewish is clearly a requirement for the position of chief human resources officer at Digital Realty. A non-Jewish employee wouldn’t likely carry out Stein’s illegal “JEWISH ONLY” hiring policy.

Ms. Fiedelemen’s $3,000,000 estimated annual compensation package appears to be more of a bribe to induce her to violate US civil rights laws than it is a reasonable salary for an HR professional at a company with only 1,500 employees. Add to this that Ms. Fiedelmen holds a B.A. in Fine Arts but lacks any formal business, HR or graduate education. The situation reeks of unlawful activity by Stein, Jacobs and Fiedelman.

As it stands today, the following races will not be considered for senior executive positions at Digital: 

American Indians or Alaska nativesAsians,  black or African AmericansNative Hawaiians or Pacific Islander or white: (white is a person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.) 

White people whose mothers are Jewish are the exception and may apply and be considered for senior positions.

What is also very telling is that when Stein took Mike Foust’s position from him in an illegal coup (more on that soon), he fired all of the “goyim” (non-jews) as fast as he could. First to go, of course, was the founder and CEO, Mike Foust, followed by Kris Kumar, David Caron, Jim Smith, and Matt Miszewski. Most recently, Scott Peterson was put on contract and moved out in 2018.

Contrast this with those who made the cut to stay: Joshua Mills, Ellen Jacobs and John Stewart , all Jewish. Stein then hired Andrew Power, Gregory Wright, Cindy Fiedelman, Sherry Liebo, etc. Research into all of the current top executives at Digital Realty support, without a doubt, that they are all Jewish,

Ethnic and religious nepotism at Digital Realty is a very troubling sign. It indicates that DLR is willing to sacrifice hiring the best and the brightest in the business so it can reward its “family” members with the highest paying positions.

There may be more employee turnover at Digital Realty now that Stein’s scheme is out of the bag. Non-Jewish employees are finding it quite discouraging that Digital doesn’t consider them qualified to lead the company simply because of their religion and/or ethnicity.


Is Stein and Feidelman’s scheme, illegal?  Absolutely. Title VII Civil Rights of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals because of their religion (or lack of religious belief), ethnicity, race, creed or color in hiring, firing, or any other terms and conditions of employment. It appears that Bill Stein and Cindy Fiedelman dictated that only Jewish Americans could be on the senior team. Stein and Fiedelman violated civil rights laws by requiring that positions be filled only by Jewish Americans. 

Some of the names of senior officers don’t appear to be Jewish: Names are changed and adapted over many years. Background checks available to anyone using the internet confirmed what we already suspected. many of Digital’s senior officers have Anglo names such as Power, Mills, Wright, Smith, yet all four men have been confirmed to be Jewish. Do some digging around on the internet to confirm it for yourself. 

Ellen Jacobs was replaced by Cindy Fiedelman, what does that tell you? It tells us that the head HR role is a gatekeeper position. You couldn’t tell a non-Jew to only staff the senior team with Jewish-Americans, it would never work.

Should I tell my colleagues about this? Yes, having an open dialogue about discrimination at work is important. If you face retaliation as a result, record, and document the harassment. Don’t wait to file a claim with the EEOC and get a lawyer who will be on your side, not the companies.

Should Digital’s Board be notified? Dennis Singleton and Larry Chapman are both Jewish Americans. They are aware of the situation and are key figures in both the illegal takeover and Jewish only hiring practices.

Is speaking out about this issue anti-Semitic?  Not at all. That phrase is overused and abused far too often. The facts are the facts. Digital Realty has made it clear that they believe that non-Jews aren’t good enough to be senior leaders. They have violated civil rights laws in place for more than 55 years. Fiedelman’s lack of formal education in the human resources field is no excuse for the violations.

What should I do if I believe I was passed over for a promotion or not hired because I’m not Jewish? Besides filing a complaint with the EEOC, you can sue Digital Realty for civil rights violations. If you have a chance to leave Digital, you may want to do so. But be careful not to run into the same glproblem Equinix, Coresite, CyrusOne, Century Link (Savvis) and Global Switch. Each of these companies is careful to maintain Jewish leadership and control.
