Ex-engineer sues Google for discriminating against conservative white males

James Damore'slawsuit says the company's "open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender" - that is, Caucasian and male. Damore filed a class-action complaint today in a California court alongside another former Google employee, David Gudeman.
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 males.
The suit claims Google protected employees who silenced conservatives: "Google created an environment of protecting employees who harassed individuals who spoke out against Google's view or the 'Googley way, ' as it is sometimes known internally".
Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google exclusively due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with "boos" during company-wide weekly meetings. He also distinguished himself by arguing that the gender gap at tech companies is the result of "biological causes", and that the men are simply better equipped than women for tech jobs. The company's CEO, Sundar Pichai, told Bloomberg that Damore "violate [d] our Code of Conduct and cross [ed] the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace".
Damore's suit, which comes from the opposite end of the spectrum, was expected, given his very public hiring of Dhillon, in August.
In a new lawsuit, Damore claimed that Google "singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated" anyone who didn't share their liberal views. 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.
