  • Google fired James Damore in August 2017

James Damore's lawsuit 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.

A lawsuit filed against Google by fired developer James Damore accuses the tech giant of various instances in which conservatives and white men were discriminated against while he was with the company.

The lawsuit also alleges that Google uses illegal hiring quotas in order to fill positions with female and minority candidates.

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...
