Ex-engineer sues Google for discriminating against conservative white males

Illustration by Alex Castro  The Verge

Google has not yet commented on Damore's lawsuit.

The two men "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", Harmeet K. Dhillon from the Dhillon Law Group, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs, said in the lawsuit. In doing so, Damore also painted gross generalizations against women, accusing them of being more neurotic and anxiety-ridden, and he believes these supposed traits render women unsuitable for the stress of higher-level tech jobs.

Sachin's daughter lodged a complaint a while ago against the stalker and the police swung into the action straight away. On the side of Debkumar, he has recently lost his father and has been going for medical treatment for last eight years.

What other action does Google face?

. He finds fault in company executives like Ruth Porat, for example, the chief financial officer of Google.

Damore, 28, says he submitted early versions of his memo to Google's human resources department without being reprimanded. Damore filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that his employer interfered with his right to engage in protected activities. Unlike government employees, who have some free speech protections, private employees in the US have little legal recourse if companies choose to retaliate for things they say at work or at home. At least one US congressman and numerous commentators, some representing the far right, have blasted the company's decision, accusing it of suppressing free speech.

Trump Delays Fake News Awards
And, yes, we are actually talking about a Fake News Awards ceremony that has been created by the leader of the free world.

Engineer James Damore's memo, which was leaked this fall, criticized Google's "left leaning" culture and attempted to argue that women in engineering were paid less than men due to their biological differences, not because of hiring practices. They claim they were discriminated against because they are both male and Caucasian, and Google's practices favor women and minorities. Specifically, he said, the gender pay gap "doesn't necessarily imply sexism".

The suit claims Google maintains a blacklist of conservatives media personalities not allowed on company grounds: It allegedly includes radio host Alex Jones and conservative blogger Curtis Yarvin. The data show that 56% of Google's workforce and 53% of its technical staff are white. "This included employment and business-related topics such as "'diversity" hiring policies, "bias sensitivity" or "social justice.'" The lawsuit also alleges that Google uses illegal hiring quotas in order to fill positions with female and minority candidates.
