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

The author of a controversial memo that sparked debates about gender and diversity at Google sued his former employer on Monday, alleging that the company discriminates against politically conservative white men.

James Damore, who was fired in August for internally circulating a manifesto that argued Google’s gender pay gap was the result of genetic inferiority, said in a lawsuit filed in Santa Clara Superior Court that the search giant “singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated” employees who deviated from the company’s view on diversity. Damore and a second plaintiff, David Gudeman, another former Google engineer, are seeking class-action status for anyone who identifies as conservative, Caucasian, or male.

The men are being represented by Harmeet K. Dhillon, the Republican National Committee’s committeewoman for California.

    Isn’t it against the law to NOT discriminate against white men of any political persuasion? It is in Ontario.

      It is true that under our so-called “charter of rights” discrimination on the basis of race and gender IS permitted!

    “James Damore, who was fired in August for internally circulating a manifesto that argued Google’s gender pay gap was the result of genetic inferiority,…”

    What a truly magnificent lie.

    I hope this is the beginning of Google’s end.

      I can’t wait to see the naked, lifeless corpses of Larry Page and Sergey Brin drug behind a Tesla through the dusty back alleys of Palo Alto.

    My head just caved in with the insane volumes of stupidity at BF. Barely a single one of them can read or even comprehend what they have read regarding the “memo” that was written.

    • You have to read the statement of claim, Google is an SJW insane asylum, I do not say this lightly, the Nazis really are running the show there.

    His suit will likely go nowhere but there’s an upside. Google has shouted to the world that white guys and everyone to the right of Lenin are not welcome, will no longer be hired and will be pushed out if they are there.
