Google Memo Author James Damore Sues Company For Discrimination Against White Males
11 January, 2018, 09:20
If not, he's the engineer who was sacked from his position at Google a year ago for writing a memo inferring that women aren't biologically as adept at being engineers as men, and questioning the wisdom of Silicon Valley's diversity efforts, minuscule though they are.
The lawsuit says it aims to represent Google employees who are male, Caucasian, and who are discriminated against on the basis of "perceived conservative political views by Google".
Damore was sacked five months ago after writing a 3,000-word memo that included the sentence: "I'm simply stating that the distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don't see equal representation of women in tech and leadership".
The lengthy complaint totals some 62 pages and contains in excess of 100 additional exhibits and appendices, most of which are comprised of memes or social media posts made by Google employees.
It's an unjust world for conservative white males, say two who filed a lawsuit against Google Monday. One of those suing Google is James Damore. Defending the liberal agenda, or defending violations of California employment law, is not in any Google employee's job description.
Liz Fong-Jones, a site reliability engineering manager at Google, is alleged to have "repeatedly discriminated against Caucasian males".
The complaint calls Burchett's comments a "perfect example of Google's relaxed attitude towards discrimination against Caucasians and males".
Google is now facing another lawsuit accusing the company of paying female employees less than their male counterparts. "To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK", wrote CEO Sundar Pichai in an internal memo announcing Damore's departure.
While many have condemned Damore's views, others in the Silicon Valley tech world have wondered if there was a bias at Google that disallowed the open expression of politically conservative viewpoints.
The suit claims that Google uses "extreme" and "illegal" practices to keep these dudes down.
Damore, who has remained unemployed since leaving Google, and his co-plaintiff are asking for compensatory and punitive damages against the company.
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.
The suit goes on to explain how the Leftist mob mentality perpetuated and encouraged at Google led to some of the employees who harassed Damore being promoted for their actions, while certain blacklists were also formed against those who identified as Conservatives or supported President Donald Trump.
Damore's class action suit comes about four months after his firing.
