Damore Lawsuit: Google Internal Communications Reveal Anti-White, Anti-Male Attitudes

Any former Google employee who believes they were discriminated against due to their Caucasian race, male gender or "perceived conservative political views" was invited to join Damore and Gudeman in the suit.

Somewhat redundantly, it adds that Damore, Gudeman, and "other class members" 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".

Damore came to fame after he wrote the now-infamous "Google Manifesto, " where he pointed out that "differences in distributions of traits between men and women may in part explain why we don't have 50% representation of women in tech".

Damore also claims that women are only employed by Google to fill quotas, rather than because of their skills and expertise in their jobs, and that white males were mocked with "boos" during weekly meetings.

"Google's open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender, barred by law". Damore also suggested that Google pushes a leftist agenda and silences conservative voices. Last month Google scored a win in the lawsuit when a California state judge dismissed class action claims.

It accused the internet advertising giant of systematic and deliberate discrimination against white male staff who held conservative viewpoints - alleging the duo plus other white dudes were victimized and blacklisted for roles within the corporation. Back in August, Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressed the controversy, which questioned the biological ability of women workers in technology, directly in a memo to employees.

The lawsuit is seeking compensation against Google and an injunction against the company for its alleged discrimination.

Those things - and the GoPro name - helped put Karma into second place in its price band in 2017 behind category leader DJI . GoPro shares are also down by 75 percent from their $24-a-share price when the company went public in June 2014.

"We look forward to defending against Mr Damore's lawsuit in court", said a Google spokesperson when asked for comment. He claimed that women's "neuroticism" and men's "higher drive for status" are among the factors that contribute to gender disparities in tech.

Damore in the memo also criticized the company's continued push for diversity, and advocated for a fairer approach to the evaluation of each employee's skillsets individually.

CEO Sundar Pichai said in an email to staff after Damore was sacked: "That to suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK".

The company has never given any indication that it fired Damore for his political views.

After his firing, Damore became something of a TV-circuit celebrity, controversially likening being a white male conservative at Google to "being gay in the 1950s".

The suit claims that Google uses "extreme" and "illegal" practices to keep these dudes down. The class action suit is also demanding for a jury trial.
