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

James Damore, the programmer who was sacked from Google previous year after circulating a manifesto that argued that women are less biologically suited for tech jobs, has filed a class-action lawsuit against the company, alleging that it discriminates against conservative white men.

Filed by Dhillon Law Group, the suit looks to represent all Google employees who've been discriminated against due to their "perceived conservative political views by Google", "their male gender by Google", and "due to their Caucasian race by Google". The suit alleges that Google's diversity efforts are unlawful, citing "illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates" as an example.

He also distinguished himself by arguing that the gender gap at tech companies is the result of "biological causes", and that the men are simply better equipped than women for tech jobs.

In their lawsuit, the pair claimed Google staffers openly discussed in meetings how women and members of certain ethic groupings would receive preferential treatment when it came to hiring and promotions. The lawsuit follows a complaint that Damore filed with the National Labor Relations Board in August on the basis that Google was "misrepresenting and shaming me in order to silence my complaints".

Screenshots of the messages and e-mails from the employees provide ample evidence that the suit isn't making up any of the claims nor are they unsubstantiated.

There are a series of images, screenshots and conversations from Google employees actively espousing discriminatory rhetoric toward straight white cis-males and Conservatives in an unrepentant fashion.

Google is also facing allegations that it discriminated against women who taught its employees' children at the company's preschool.

Damore stated that women tend to be more interested in people rather than things, "empathizing vs. systemizing", whereas men have a higher drive for status and so tend to end up in leadership positions.

In addition, if users pair the sound bar with a TCL Roku TV, voice control can then be extended to the display. Assuming everything goes according to schedule, that will be happening closer to the end of this year.

The company, which called the memo "offensive" and "harmful", fired Damore, further elevating him as a victim of what his supporters called an overreaching "political correctness" and ideology rigidity within the tech industry.

The exhibits in Damore's suit include several emails sent to him by other Google employees.

In its firing of Damore, Google became a hero to neither those who thought the tech company didn't act quickly enough and those who thought it an affront to free speech. Dhillon said she expects dozens of other conservative Google staffers to join the class-action suit.

But Damore said he would "welcome" the chance to go back to work for Google ― whose workforce is still disproportionately white and male ― and continue fighting for the rights of men, Caucasian people and conservatives.
