4 months ago

James Damore, most famous for publishing a ten-page screed against diversity programs within the company he worked for, Google, was subsequently fired over the summer, 2017. The full text of his memo can be found at Gizmodo.

Well, he's back! This Monday, he filed a lawsuit in court alleging that Google discriminated against him for being a conservative white male.

Part of the lawsuit read,

"Google employees and managers strongly preferred to hear the same orthodox opinions regurgitated repeatedly, producing an ideological echo chamber, a protected, distorted bubble of groupthink. When Plaintiffs challenged Googleโ€™s illegal employment practices, they were openly threatened and subjected to harassment and retaliation from Google. Google created an environment of protecting employees who harassed individuals who spoke out against Googleโ€™s viewor the โ€œGoogley way,โ€ as it is sometimes known internally."

According to Mashable

"the suit welcomes all former or current Google employee who have been discriminated against due to being white, male, or having 'unpopular political views' to join."

People immediately began responding on Twitter. Buzzfeed reporter, Hayes Brown, decided to set the situation to a familiar tune:

Then, at around 5:30, Google sent this statement to Mashable:

 "We look forward to defending against Mr. Damore's lawsuit in court."

So do we.
