Lawsuit Alleges Google Managers Booed White Men at Company Meetings

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

Photo James Damore's lawsuit against Google, which fired him a year ago 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".

On Monday, James Damore, the Google employee who was sacked for a memo in which he suggested that women were not biologically capable of working in the tech industry, filed suit against Google for discriminating against politically conservative white men. The complaint? That his former employer unjustly discriminates against conservative white men, or those whose perspectives differ from Google management.

The class-action lawsuit, filed on behalf of both Damore and another Google engineer, David Gudeman.

"Google's open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender".

Jerry Van Dyke, Emmy-Nominated 'Coach' Actor, Dies at 86
Jerry Van Dyke , the comedian brother of actor Dick Van Dyke , reportedly has died at the age of 86. Van Dyke went into show business, just like his brother.

As BuzzFeed News reports, several women have filed discrimination suits against Google, alleging that the company paid them less than their male counterparts, and faulting the company for asking the female hires about prior pay. The memo in which he criticized the company's hiring practices, and claimed that disparities between men and women in the technology industry were at least partially due to behavioral differences between those genders due to biology, led to his firing from the company in August. Google terminated Damore for the memo, saying it was contrary to the company's basic values and code of conduct.

Damore's suit, which comes from the opposite end of the spectrum, was expected, given his very public hiring of Dhillon, in August.

A Google spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment. Damore, who also filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, appeared to embrace his rising political visibility, posing in a t-shirt with the word "Goolag" written in a multi-colored style that mimicked Google's familiar logo.
