Google sued for discriminating against white men

Google Memo Author James Damore Sues Company For Discrimination Against White Males

James Damore, a former Google engineer who was sacked after he wrote a controversial memo claiming that biological differences between men and women might explain why there's a gender gap in tech, is alleging in a lawsuit that the tech firm discriminates against men, conservatives and white people.

If you remember, Damore's memo, titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber", alleged that women were underrepresented in tech not because of systemic discrimination, but because of "differences in distributions of traits between men and women", and that "discrimination to reach equal representation is unfair, divisive, and bad for business".

Danielle Brown, at that time the Google vice president of diversity, responded to the document in a memo, writing that the document "advanced incorrect assumptions about gender" and that "it's not a viewpoint that I or this company endorses, promotes or encourages".

At the in-person training, entitled "Bias Busting", Google discussed how biases against women exist in the workplace, and how "white male privilege" exists in the workplace. Last month Google scored a win in the lawsuit when a California state judge dismissed class action claims.

In the suit, Damore claims that he was harassed after the memo spread throughout Google and even more so after the media got a hold of the memo.

The men are being represented by Harmeet K. Dhillon, the Republican National Committee's Comitteewoman for California. In September, three female former Google employees filed a lawsuit against the company, saying it discriminates against women. Google terminated Gudeman in 2016 after he made comments suggesting a Muslim colleague had a link to terrorism.

It's an unjust world for conservative white males, say two who filed a lawsuit against Google Monday.

His claims: that Google unfairly discriminates against white men whose political views are unpopular with its executives.

"Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males", the 161-page suit says.

The complaints in Damore's lawsuit are numerous.

CEO Sundar Pichai said in an email to staff after Damore was sacked: "That to suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK". "Fuck you", wrote one of Damore's fellow engineers.

The suit also claims that "numerical presence of women celebrated at Google" was based "solely due to their gender" while the "presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during companywide weekly meetings". Google has denied the allegations, arguing that it doesn't have a gender gap in pay.

CNBC on Monday reported a statement regarding Damore's lawsuit from a Google spokesperson, who said that the company "looks forward to defending against Mr. Damore's lawsuit in court".
