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

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

A former engineer who wrote a sexist manifesto disparaging Google's efforts to close the gender gap is now suing, claiming the search giant discriminates against conservative white men.

Damore and former Google engineer David Gudeman are seeking to file a class action suit on behalf of conservative white men.

Photo James Damore's lawsuit against Google, which fired him past year after he criticized its diversity efforts, said, "Google's open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender". Earlier this month, four women plaintiffs as part of a revised lawsuit, alleged that the company had asked for their prior salaries and had underpaid them compared to their male counterparts. This unacceptable behavior occurred at the hands of high-level managers at Google who were responsible for hundreds, if not thousands, of hiring and firing decisions...

This newspaper reached out to Google and this post will be updated.

One subgroup of additional materials attached to the lawsuit is titled "Anti-Caucasian postings".

Many companies in the tech world including Facebook, Tesla, Uber and Google have come under fire for discrimination and sexual harassment.

The lawsuit asserts various causes of action and cites to multiple violations of the California Labor Code and the Fair Employment and Housing Act.

A Google spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

Damore became a media mainstay after penning a highly controversial 3,300-word memo arguing against Google's perceived culture of political correctness.

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.
