From the class action lawsuit filed today by James Damore, who was fired by Google last year after Youtube CEO Susan Wojcicki, former sister-in-law of Sergey Brin and sister of 23andMe founder Anne Wojcicki, spoke power to truth:

3.Throughout the Class Periods, and in violation of California law, Google employees who expressed views deviating from the majority view at Google on political subjects raised in the workplace and relevant to Google’s employment policies and its business, such as “diversity”hiring policies,“bias sensitivity,” or “social justice,”were/are singled out, mistreated, and systematically punished and terminated from Google, in violation of their legal rights.

4.Google’s open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender, barred by law. Google’s management goes to extreme and illegal—lengths to encourage hiring managers to take protected categories such as race and/or gender into consideration as determinative hiring factors,to the detriment of Caucasian and malee mployees and potential employee sat Google.

5.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. This is the essence of discrimination—Google formed opinions about and then treated Plaintiffs not based on their individual merits, but rather on their membership in groups with assumed characteristics.

6.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 Google’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 Google’s view or the “Googley way,”as it is sometimes known internally.Google employees knew they could harass Plaintiffs with impunity, given the tone set by managers and they did so.

7.Google employs illegal hiring quotas to fill its desired percentages of women and favored minority candidates, and openly shames managers of business units who fail to meet their quotas—in the process, openly denigrating male and Caucasian employees as less favored than others.

8.Not only was the numerical presence of women celebrated at Google solely due to their gender, but the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with “boos”during company-wide weekly meetings. 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 during the Class Periods.

Sounds like a Hostile Work Environment, right?

Obviously, Google isn’t actually going to stop hiring Asian and white male engineers and replace them with black and Hispanic women. Management has the world’s second highest market capitalization to protect. But Google executives like Susan Wojcicki don’t like being blamed for doing what they do to maximize stockholder wealth when instead they can demonize junior white and Asian male employees like James Damore as The Real Problem with why Google’s hiring doesn’t reflect The Narrative.

Keep in mind that Susan Wojcicki had Damore fired for defending Google’s actual hiring behavior.

By the way, Maureen Dowd followed up my column on the interesting paradoxes posed by the Wojcicki Sisters with a lengthy interview with Anne Wojcicki of 23andMe that skipped all the controversial stuff, but is still full of human interest, like why she and fellow biochemical pioneer, retired baseball slugger Alex Rodriguez, are no longer an item.

    "the lawsuits against racial quotas have been poorly orchestrated in the past"

    Yes, plaintiffs forgot to control ideological indoctrination at law schools, as well as our general culture's opinion of discrimination against Stale, Pale Males. Or anyone who's not a NAM, as the case may be.

    In Bollinger, Day O'Connor pulled a compelling interest for colleges to promote diversity out of her butt. Moreover, the idea was that "underrepresented" minority status may be one of many factors, so long as it's not the deciding factor. Except the case was deliberately chosen because in that instance such status made the difference between admission and "Sorry, pal, come back when you're an underrepresented minority."

    How does one orchestrate against that? (Targeted assassination being illegal.)

    ‘Class action lawsuit’ … USA lawyers have a saying about these things, ‘Bribed American judges, motherf-cker!’

    Google in court … is like that scene early in ‘Goodfellas’ where the mafia kid’s lawyer smiles his grin for the judge on the bench in front of him

    Google is the best friend the US bribe-taking judges have in the world

    If you know businesspeople or others, who have had the full ‘experience’ of the US court system, you learn that the US courts are nothing like portrayed in Hollywood movies or TV shows … It is foolish to think that the rest of the government is corruptible but the judges are not in the game … a game well-hidden by media and, well, by Google

    No company is more key to the US judge-lawyer bribery complex than Google … the Google lawyers inviting and welcoming ‘orders to Google’ to hide the actions of their law firm friends

    Including the ‘Google hyper-injunction’, whereby Google itself, and the parties to the case, are all under gag order to not disclose that there is an order banning search results from Google

    Class action cases in general, go nowhere unless the Powers That Be see some interest in them going forward … tho often indeed they run up many hundreds of thousands in legal bills – generously shared with the judges – before the lawyers say, ‘Case dismissed, motherf-cker!’

    You are right. Class action law suits demanding that 4’10 80 pd Chinese women become firemen, or class action lawsuits demanding that illiterate blacks with criminal records become police officers always win.

    But a class action law suit demanding equal treatment for White mean will
    always be dismissed at the first motions hearing.

    Only thing I dispute in your post is that the judges are bribed. They don’t have to be bribed. They, like the rest of the elites want Whites exterminated.

    That teeny tiny Chinese female firefighter? Because she couldn’t lift and carry the hoses or dive the truck, she was rapidly promoted to a Captain with a well paid desk job.

    >Keep in mind that Susan Wojcicki had Damore fired for defending Google’s actual hiring behavior.

    Well, to be fair to employers, there’s really not much you can do if the overwhelming pool of hiring candidates are white and East/South Asian males to begin with. Software developers don’t just pop out of nowhere, and you can’t just force people to become-or not to become-coders against their wills. Given the volume of applications Google receives, it really puts into perspective that the gap begins far earlier.

    (On the other hand, many employers do seem to expect senior developers to appear out of the aether while completely failing to understand that their refusal to hire junior developers… leads to the lack of senior developers-they really don’t have anyone but themselves to blame on that one. Though this is less bad at the big titans than most places, thanks to internships and college connections, and being able to take a chance on a bright but theoretical young dev.)

    Here’s hoping for the best for Mr. Damore.

    Normally, judges wouldn’t feel compelled to apply California law as written if it goes against their wishes. They can come up with a rationale like the rationale for “heightened scrutiny” attaching only to cases involving “discrete and insular minorities” regarding the 14th amendment. Which SCOTUS pulled out of its rear in the Caroline Products decision. Which means Stale, Pale Males can’t count on Elastic Clause protection, sorry.

    Legerdemain deeming political discrimination against rightists a-okay has probably already been written. Judges shall use it if they’re so inclined. But this case is about lawfare, right? Discovery can be as sweet as victory.

    Depends on which trades. In my local area, the roofing trade is dominate by Mexican/Central American Mayans. Even regular mestizo Hispanics are being squeeze out. From a HBD perspective, they are ideally build for the task as a group. It's mesmerizing to see a group of them, working as a team get the job done in two days from start to finish.

    If you put same number of legacy Americans(white or black) on typical residential roof, you will likely collapse the roof joist from their weight. There is a reason why US/Europe used to use child labor for chimney sweeps.

    In all seriousness though, all of this diversity mumbo jumbo is ultimately much ado about nothing. Google and many other companies in Silicon Valley hire mostly white, Jewish, Indian, or Chinese American males in technical roles.

    Obviously, Google isn’t actually going to stop hiring Asian and white male engineers and replace them with black and Hispanic women.

    [1] Why is this English so substandard? The lack of a space after the period and after the comma, the misuse of a pair of dashes, and the incorrect word separation in the last few words, might be excused as some software glitch in copying text from the .pdf file, where the spacing is correct. But in the first sentence, why the dangling “barred by law”? Shouldn’t there be a “which is” before this phrase? Also, the usual preposition with “hostility” is hostility “to” something (meaning “against”), not hostility “for” something (meaning “in favor of”). Was this document written by a non-native speaker of English?

    [2] If I were a judge or juror in this case, I’d want to see some specific evidence of the claim that the defendants were “ostracized, belittled, and punished”. But maybe that’s what discovery is for.

    Hello Mark! Good questions....

    (1) The language is not substandard when seen in context. Of the many forms of specialized, nonstandard English, the form for US Legal Pleadings is among the more specialized and ritualistic. The English in this Complaint is exactly what its primary intended readers (judges and lawyers) want and expect to see.

    (2) Yes. The details will come with the discovery process, depositions, and ultimately at trial.

    Substantively -

    It's normal and best practice to allege every possible claim however weak. As mainstream commentators have already begun to point out, the claim of political discrimination is very weak. Commenters here have also noted that claims of racial and gender discrimination through preferences and quotas are hard for non- minorities.

    BUT - you will note that Mr. Sailer focuses on the claim that management fostered or at minimum tolerated a gender and/or racially based Hostile Work Environment. I expect that if anything here really scares Google, it's this claim.

    Under other circumstances Google would obviously just use its bottomless well of cash to pay Damore et al. off, assuming the claims survived initial Motions to Dismiss. But sociopolitical circumstances make that impossible so they'll have to fight to the death.

    If this case survives the opening motions to dismiss and moves on to the pretrial discovery/deposition stage we could have some fun.

  24. Read an article at SF Gate that Google provides free bikes for their employees to ride on their huge California campus and the bikes disappear at a rate of 100 to 250 per week. They are going to hire 30 contractors to find their missing bikes. If the bikes are worth only $200 each and they lose maybe 150 per week, that’s $30,000 per week. This company makes too much money.

    Unlike the various Asian Americans who've sued schools alleging discrimination, Abigail Fisher was fairly mediocre. IIRC her SAT scores were below the average of matriculating students at UT Austin, so yes, she was hardly the best spokesperson for the cause.

    If I was a lawyer arguing against this line of line if reasoning I would say that the very least we need in addition to strict scrutiny is public scrutiny. They should post the standards required for each group. If Asians need to score 550 on the Blap test to get into Prestigious U and blacks only need a score of 175 then make it explicit. People should know where they stand.

The lack of a space after the period and after the comma, the misuse of a pair of dashes, and the incorrect word separation in the last few words, might be excused as some software glitch in copying text from the .pdf file, where the spacing is correct. But in the first sentence, why the dangling "barred by law"? Shouldn't there be a "which is" before this phrase? Also, the usual preposition with "hostility" is hostility "to" something (meaning "against"), not hostility "for" something (meaning "in favor of"). Was this document written by a non-native speaker of English?

    [2] If I were a judge or juror in this case, I'd want to see some specific evidence of the claim that the defendants were "ostracized, belittled, and punished". But maybe that's what discovery is for.

    Hello Mark! Good questions….

    (1) The language is not substandard when seen in context. Of the many forms of specialized, nonstandard English, the form for US Legal Pleadings is among the more specialized and ritualistic. The English in this Complaint is exactly what its primary intended readers (judges and lawyers) want and expect to see.

    (2) Yes. The details will come with the discovery process, depositions, and ultimately at trial.

    Substantively -

    It’s normal and best practice to allege every possible claim however weak. As mainstream commentators have already begun to point out, the claim of political discrimination is very weak. Commenters here have also noted that claims of racial and gender discrimination through preferences and quotas are hard for non- minorities.

    BUT – you will note that Mr. Sailer focuses on the claim that management fostered or at minimum tolerated a gender and/or racially based Hostile Work Environment. I expect that if anything here really scares Google, it’s this claim.

    Under other circumstances Google would obviously just use its bottomless well of cash to pay Damore et al. off, assuming the claims survived initial Motions to Dismiss. But sociopolitical circumstances make that impossible so they’ll have to fight to the death.

    If this case survives the opening motions to dismiss and moves on to the pretrial discovery/deposition stage we could have some fun.

  30. I do my best to avoid using google- They’re a antiwhite globalist corporation that seeks to culturally, economically and demographically marginalize me and people like me, so why should I give them business?
    Take their frequent “Google doodles”- the majority of the time it’s of some obscure nonwhite that I guarantee you 99% of Americans have never even heard of (often times a Sub continental, which should tell you who they’re hiring). Or if it’s of a Caucasian they’re almost always of Hebraic extraction (telling about who runs the joint).

    So call me paranoid but I get this sinking feeling that the poeple running and working for Google have a hostile indifference bordering on outright dislike for the ordinary white population of America. So lots of luck to people like Damore for trying to expose them for their unsavory ways.

    He obviously meant "a juror will want to see..." but you dishonestly chose to focus on the colloquial phrasing he used.

    And more to the point, any honest, decent juror would require strong evidence in order to rule in the plaintiff's favor, even if the ruling would be beneficial to the juror personally or to one of the groups to which the juror belongs. The extent to which our society is great is a function of the importance we place on evidence and facts over simple tribalism. You want our society to be a simple racial spoils system with kangaroo courts that make rulings based on the race of the people involved. That is absolutely disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself, assuming you even have that capacity.

    Has any work environment outside the trades not been nakedly and unapologetically hostile to white males for the past twenty years?

    Depends on which trades. In my local area, the roofing trade is dominate by Mexican/Central American Mayans. Even regular mestizo Hispanics are being squeeze out. From a HBD perspective, they are ideally build for the task as a group. It’s mesmerizing to see a group of them, working as a team get the job done in two days from start to finish.

    If you put same number of legacy Americans(white or black) on typical residential roof, you will likely collapse the roof joist from their weight. There is a reason why US/Europe used to use child labor for chimney sweeps.

    In economic terms, this is a win/win. In nation-building/nation-wrecking terms, it's a Wreck for white Americans.

    Those little Mayans will have big families and the kids may or may not want to stay in the roofing trade. But they will vote, and they will vote anti-white and pro-socialist. In 498, almost 499 years since Cortez, they haven't learned to read or write Spanish very well or even necessarily speak it:what makes you think they'll do better with English?

    Before mestizos and now indios ran them out, residential and light commercial roofers were mostly White, and occasionally Black, men who had problems but were willing to do ass busting work for a salary they could feed and clothe and house a wife and kids on. Many were ex-cons or former dope users and most were brawling boozers, hardasses who scared the contractors who hired them a little.
    The little brown shingling machines powered by beans don't scare their employers and they can do a certain job, but their numbers will soon exceed the number of roofers the US needs. Meanwhile, prole whites can no longer feed their families.

    You're right for the wrong reasons.

    Worker's Compensation Insurance for Roofing Companies is nearly $0.50 to the dollar. Meaning that if you pay $20.00 per hour, you need to pay your Comp Insurer nearly $10.00 for each hour worked.

    So these Central Americans all pretend to be independent subcontractors of one another (really, they just show up for a day rate). And when one of these roly polies slips and bounces off two pitches and down three stories and breaks his back or is paralyzed, the other Central American "subcontractors" throw him in a wheel barrow and dump him in your local Emergency Room.

    Whom do you think pays for his medical care? Or to support his wife and five kids because he can't work at the only job he could do?

    I've never understood why the wealthiest nation on earth is content to live in what are little more than sheds.
    Every time a hurricane strikes, I'm quite distressed by the carnage wrought on these expensive shanty-towns. For instance, the cottage I'm in right now was intended to house the poorest class of farm servant, yet has solid masonry walls two feet thick, tiny windows, and a Welsh slate roof, each slate at least 1/4" thick (no eaves gap). Pit-sawn rafter pairs, i.e. half a tree, close-boarded. I clamber about on it without a second thought despite its age (sometime around 1850).
    I suppose our weather is just reliably worse than yours, without the extreme interruptions. And storm-cellars were an impossibility, they'd simply fill with water every winter, so best to have it above ground level?

    Yes, because what you want in roofing is a) speed over accuracy - after all, the roof only protects all of the structural components and contents of a home from the elements; and, b) a race to the bottom in terms of safety, because what could go wrong with men several stories above the ground working at a breakneck pace?

  44. The sexual discrimination lawsuit I am waiting for is the one that will require equal spending on healthcare benefits. we spend somewhere around $3 trillion or about 18% of our GDP on healthcare and women are hogging most of it. They use something like 30% more throughout all stages of their life and yet they out live men by almost 5 years and have much better outcomes in most areas you can measure.

    Our legislators are cowardly so nothing will ever happen there but it looks like a very inviting target to go to the Supreme Court (not that I would know). The ACA required equal or unisex premiums for health insurance so it would only make sense to make the spending equal.

    She stands to make at least 30% of the settlement (perhaps more) as it is certainly pro-bono.

    California it’s 50 percent to the attorney.
    It would be contingency, not pro bono.

(Attorneys almost never win fee disputes with clients). Even for crackerjack trial horses, which this desi is not, 1/3 of the net recovery would be standard. California employers face a host of checks on their discretion to fire at-will. Employers can retain much of that common-law freedom through careful use of employee manuals and such, but those measures do not avail in the case of recognized classes of discrimination.

    California contingency fees are 50 percent except for workman’s compensation for which the fee is 15 percent.

    Where did you get the idea that California fees are 30 percent? Ask any attorney or anyone who has ever been a plaintiff.

    A California employe can be fired for no reason whatsoever unless the person fired is fired because he she belongs to a protected class.
    , @Alden
    You posted exactly what I posted The only protection California employees have against being fired is if they belong to a protected class.

    But in their drive to get rid of White employees, employers find themselves with an entire workforce of protected class minorites. Von’s has done that to itself. It’s saddled with lots of useless, disruptive black and brown felons they can’t get rid of simply because they are black and brown.

    And 50 percent contingency fee is standard in California Even the starving hard scrabble attorneys won’t file withour 50 percent fee agreement

    And since the settlement checks go directly to the attorney, not the client I don’t see how the client can refuse to pay the attorney his 50 percent fee.

    What happens, the client leaves the money sitting in the attorneys trust account and goes and hires another attorney to get the 50 percent fee reduced to 30 percent?

    Those Asian kids were likely East Asians. The Chinese, especially when they have English language skills, whether in Asia or here as immigrants, tend to adopt an Anglo-Saxon name for everyday use.

    Harmeet Dhillon is the child of Sikh immigrants from India, who tend not use Angl0-Saxon Christian nicknames here in America. Harmeet is a Punjabi language name.

    A former colleague and friend who is Indian, explained that even Nikki Haley and Bobby Jindal's first names are actually commonplace old-time nicknames in the Punjabi language which just happen to sound identical to names common in America. He also explained that Hindu Indian immigrants sometimes pick Sanskrit based names like Neel and Raj, which sound like "Neil" and short for "Roger." But oftentimes, he said, they just go for the straight Sanskrit names.

    But based on that, it seems to me that Dinesh D'Souza didn't adopt an Anglo name, as his last name is Portuguese, and thus European.

    Commenter Twinkie has often commented that data shows that Indian immigrants to America are resistant to cultural and social assimilation.

    Not really. Complaints like this are typically cobbled together by combining bits and pieces of disparate complaints in earlier cases that turned out well. Sometimes, the parts are not fully melded together. Obviously, Dhillion does not maintain a stable of Ivy League proof readers, but that is hardly a major issue.

    Notwithstanding such nitpicks, the complaint as a whole seems quite well researched and organized. It is understood that in a lawsuit of this nature, the precise contours of the claim will be successively refined and adapted in response to legal and factual challenges.

    Depends on which trades. In my local area, the roofing trade is dominate by Mexican/Central American Mayans. Even regular mestizo Hispanics are being squeeze out. From a HBD perspective, they are ideally build for the task as a group. It's mesmerizing to see a group of them, working as a team get the job done in two days from start to finish.

    If you put same number of legacy Americans(white or black) on typical residential roof, you will likely collapse the roof joist from their weight. There is a reason why US/Europe used to use child labor for chimney sweeps.

    It’s mesmerizing to see a group of them, working as a team get the job done in two days from start to finish.

    It may indeed be mesmerizing, but on the whole they lack skills almost completely. So if you want things done fast and cheap, then third-world immigrants are your answer. If you want things done well, you’d better look elsewhere. The implications for our society aren’t comforting.

    Hello Mark! Good questions....

    (1) The language is not substandard when seen in context. Of the many forms of specialized, nonstandard English, the form for US Legal Pleadings is among the more specialized and ritualistic. The English in this Complaint is exactly what its primary intended readers (judges and lawyers) want and expect to see.

    (2) Yes. The details will come with the discovery process, depositions, and ultimately at trial.

    Substantively -

    It's normal and best practice to allege every possible claim however weak. As mainstream commentators have already begun to point out, the claim of political discrimination is very weak. Commenters here have also noted that claims of racial and gender discrimination through preferences and quotas are hard for non- minorities.

    BUT - you will note that Mr. Sailer focuses on the claim that management fostered or at minimum tolerated a gender and/or racially based Hostile Work Environment. I expect that if anything here really scares Google, it's this claim.

    Under other circumstances Google would obviously just use its bottomless well of cash to pay Damore et al. off, assuming the claims survived initial Motions to Dismiss. But sociopolitical circumstances make that impossible so they'll have to fight to the death.

    If this case survives the opening motions to dismiss and moves on to the pretrial discovery/deposition stage we could have some fun.

    The English in this Complaint is exactly what its primary intended readers (judges and lawyers) want and expect to see.

    You need to go back and take a closer look at the text. It’s incompetent.

    If I was a lawyer arguing against this line of line if reasoning I would say that the very least we need in addition to strict scrutiny is public scrutiny. They should post the standards required for each group. If Asians need to score 550 on the Blap test to get into Prestigious U and blacks only need a score of 175 then make it explicit. People should know where they stand.

    To the dismay of many Asians, standardized test scores are not (nor should they be, in any sane world) the sole metric used by American colleges in admissions determinations.

    In economic terms, this is a win/win. In nation-building/nation-wrecking terms, it's a Wreck for white Americans.

    Those little Mayans will have big families and the kids may or may not want to stay in the roofing trade. But they will vote, and they will vote anti-white and pro-socialist. In 498, almost 499 years since Cortez, they haven't learned to read or write Spanish very well or even necessarily speak it:what makes you think they'll do better with English?

    Before mestizos and now indios ran them out, residential and light commercial roofers were mostly White, and occasionally Black, men who had problems but were willing to do ass busting work for a salary they could feed and clothe and house a wife and kids on. Many were ex-cons or former dope users and most were brawling boozers, hardasses who scared the contractors who hired them a little.
    The little brown shingling machines powered by beans don't scare their employers and they can do a certain job, but their numbers will soon exceed the number of roofers the US needs. Meanwhile, prole whites can no longer feed their families.

    Modern America in a nutshell, for everyone save the Elites.

    You have figured it out, and the future ain’t pretty.

    —————————————–

    Side note: OMG, next year is the 500-year anniversary of Cortez.

    Are celebrations being planned??

    Second side note: Wiki’s article on Cortez is particularly amateurish.

The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Google’s internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy.

    Dhillon seems like more of a publicity showboat than a crack litigator to me, and the complaint seems to bear that out. If her firm can at least get the class certified, then at that point it's common to bring in other firms with more experience and expertise, since a bigger payday becomes more likely. I hope it gets that far, since the discovery and the Google employee depositions should yield much entertainment, win or lose.

    You really should stick to diet threads. In California a 50% contingency fee contract would be viewed by the Bar as presumptively abusive, and would be difficult to enforce against the client. (Attorneys almost never win fee disputes with clients). Even for crackerjack trial horses, which this desi is not, 1/3 of the net recovery would be standard. California employers face a host of checks on their discretion to fire at-will. Employers can retain much of that common-law freedom through careful use of employee manuals and such, but those measures do not avail in the case of recognized classes of discrimination. Intentionally hostile work environment against white males is one of those categories. So far, there have been no reported cases involving workplaces where the reigning ethic is "white guys suck."

    This is a civil case, where unless the standard of proof has been heightened by statute (I don't think it has), a juror should require evidence only that the fact for which evidence is offered is more likely than not to have occurred. Plaintiffs don't need "strong evidence," they need some evidence.

  78. Maybe I’m out of touch, but scanning through the James Damore file, what leaps out at me most is the question, “Does anyone actually work for a living anymore?”

    Vast amounts of time at the company supposedly on the cutting edge of productiveness, Google, are spent in what appear to be nonstop poz yakfests: publishing political manifestos and memes, lobbying for peer bonuses, discussing the proper way of announcing one’s polygamy, lecturing on life as a “dragonkin plural being”, etc.

    I broke that policy today and I regret it.

    He obviously meant "a juror will want to see..." but you dishonestly chose to focus on the colloquial phrasing he used.

    And more to the point, any honest, decent juror would require strong evidence in order to rule in the plaintiff's favor, even if the ruling would be beneficial to the juror personally or to one of the groups to which the juror belongs. The extent to which our society is great is a function of the importance we place on evidence and facts over simple tribalism. You want our society to be a simple racial spoils system with kangaroo courts that make rulings based on the race of the people involved. That is absolutely disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself, assuming you even have that capacity.

    I like the 27 year old‘s comments, even when I don’t agree.

    You and I recall a time when “any honest, decent juror would require strong evidence”*, but the 27 year old reminds us that that time has long been past for the Left and that by continuing to adhere to Marquess of Queensberry Rules we are handicapping ourselves in what is now a mortal streetfight.

    Vast amounts of time at the company supposedly on the cutting edge of productiveness, Google, are spent in what appear to be nonstop poz yakfests: publishing political manifestos and memes, lobbying for peer bonuses, discussing the proper way of announcing one's polygamy, lecturing on life as a "dragonkin plural being", etc.

    I read most of it. I had to sit through something similar for years. The sessions weren’t we must hire more minorities. That was being done already. The sessions were mostly you are evil Whites.

    The session leaders were lefty Jewish women who pushed and pushed hoping we would respond and they would have a chance to make a complaint and get us fired. I just sat there and didn’t say a word.

    At least Damore was never brought up on racism charges because he refused to have sex with blacks.

    I read most of the pleading. Google can respond by claiming that Damore created and the other plaintiff created a hostile racist sexist environment for thousands of employees.

    Discrimination against White men is the law of the land.

    No wonder they work such long hours. With all those endless meetings and chat room discussions they need the extra time to get any work done.

    It seems to me that google was trying to tell fast track applicants for higher management positions that if the got the high level job they would have to deny promotion to White men.

    The military’s done that for years. If a Captain wants to become a Major he has to write bad reports about the Lieutenants under him to justify not re enlisting them.

    And do on up the chain of command until White male officers are eliminated.

    In California an employee can be fired at any time for no reason. The exception is race sex gay disabled ........ discrimination

    But Damore is a White man who by law can and should be discriminated against.

    I can’t wait too see google’s response.

    Depends on which trades. In my local area, the roofing trade is dominate by Mexican/Central American Mayans. Even regular mestizo Hispanics are being squeeze out. From a HBD perspective, they are ideally build for the task as a group. It's mesmerizing to see a group of them, working as a team get the job done in two days from start to finish.

    If you put same number of legacy Americans(white or black) on typical residential roof, you will likely collapse the roof joist from their weight. There is a reason why US/Europe used to use child labor for chimney sweeps.

    You’re right for the wrong reasons.

    Worker’s Compensation Insurance for Roofing Companies is nearly $0.50 to the dollar. Meaning that if you pay $20.00 per hour, you need to pay your Comp Insurer nearly $10.00 for each hour worked.

    So these Central Americans all pretend to be independent subcontractors of one another (really, they just show up for a day rate). And when one of these roly polies slips and bounces off two pitches and down three stories and breaks his back or is paralyzed, the other Central American “subcontractors” throw him in a wheel barrow and dump him in your local Emergency Room.

    Whom do you think pays for his medical care? Or to support his wife and five kids because he can’t work at the only job he could do?

    Yes, because what you want in roofing is a) speed over accuracy – after all, the roof only protects all of the structural components and contents of a home from the elements; and, b) a race to the bottom in terms of safety, because what could go wrong with men several stories above the ground working at a breakneck pace?

    [1] Why is this English so substandard? The lack of a space after the period and after the comma, the misuse of a pair of dashes, and the incorrect word separation in the last few words, might be excused as some software glitch in copying text from the .pdf file, where the spacing is correct. But in the first sentence, why the dangling "barred by law"? Shouldn't there be a "which is" before this phrase? Also, the usual preposition with "hostility" is hostility "to" something (meaning "against"), not hostility "for" something (meaning "in favor of"). Was this document written by a non-native speaker of English?

    [2] If I were a judge or juror in this case, I'd want to see some specific evidence of the claim that the defendants were "ostracized, belittled, and punished". But maybe that's what discovery is for.

    So what? According to our ruling elites, and thus our courts, acting discriminatorily towards white males, especially those who are insufficiently Leftist, is perfectly a-okay. And that's almost certainly what's going to happen. We'll find plenty of evidence of Google being anti-white, anti-male, etc., and the court will dutifully rule — wrapped up in suitable sophistical verbiage — that none of it constitutes a "hostile work environment" because white, male, etc. aren't "protected classes", and therefore that discriminating against them is perfectly legal.

    Google Was Unable to Respond to Logical Arguments

    166. On November 15, 2015, a Google employee complained to Google HR regarding a highly offensive post from an employee in the Developer Product Group. The post stated:

    “If you put a group of 40-something white men in a room together and tell them to come up with something creative or innovative, they’ll come back and tell you how enjoyable the process was, and how they want to do it again, but they come up with fuck-­all as a result!” (emphasis added.)

    The Google employee stated that this statement was a violation of the Google Code of
    Conduct, and was creating a hostile workplace environment as it targeted Caucasians, males, and individuals over the age of 40.

    Google HR responded: “Given the context of the post and that [the employee’s] main point is to highlight that it is helpful to have diverse perspectives, it doesn’t appear that the post to [sic] violates our policies.”

    Perplexed, the Google employee responded to Google HR by replacing the term “40-something white men” with “women” and asked how that was not a breach of conduct. Google failed to respond.

    'Class action lawsuit' ... USA lawyers have a saying about these things, 'Bribed American judges, motherf-cker!'

    Google in court ... is like that scene early in 'Goodfellas' where the mafia kid's lawyer smiles his grin for the judge on the bench in front of him

    Google is the best friend the US bribe-taking judges have in the world

    If you know businesspeople or others, who have had the full 'experience' of the US court system, you learn that the US courts are nothing like portrayed in Hollywood movies or TV shows ... It is foolish to think that the rest of the government is corruptible but the judges are not in the game ... a game well-hidden by media and, well, by Google

    No company is more key to the US judge-lawyer bribery complex than Google ... the Google lawyers inviting and welcoming 'orders to Google' to hide the actions of their law firm friends

    Including the 'Google hyper-injunction', whereby Google itself, and the parties to the case, are all under gag order to not disclose that there is an order banning search results from Google

    Class action cases in general, go nowhere unless the Powers That Be see some interest in them going forward ... tho often indeed they run up many hundreds of thousands in legal bills - generously shared with the judges - before the lawyers say, 'Case dismissed, motherf-cker!'

    QUOTE: “Including the ‘Google hyper-injunction’, whereby Google itself, and the parties to the case, are all under gag order to not disclose that there is an order banning search results from Google.” UNQUOTE

    What a bizarre series of conjectures. I said nothing at all about 'accomplishment' and even less about 'causes to be jealous'. Not even quite sure what you're talking about, or to whom.

    What I did say was "Get back to us when you find comparable wealth stats." And the reason for that is because neither you, nor I, nor anyone else here can find comparable wealth stats, and (unlike you) I would dearly love to be proven wrong.

    What you (and anyone else interested) might find it profitable to conjecture about is precisely why income stats are so readily available at this 'granular' level of ethnicity, and wealth stats are so completely not.

    You were responding to a comment in a thread of comments. Maybe I should have block quoted the statement to which I was responding for additional clarity, but I think what I was saying should be as clear as it is logical in that context. In part, here it is,

    I can see, you are into tracking successful co-ethnics. Jews do it (and at the same accuse gentiles for anti-semitism for Jew counting) though they can’t complain for a lack of success and accomplishment unlike Hindoos.

    I think the Forbes 400 list may provide a good starting point on US wealth. While Jews are overrepresented, prominently in the U.S., there are a fair number of Indians worldwide, e.g. Lackshmi Mittal and Mukesh Ambani.

    BTW, is the trend of immigrants giving their kids foreign first names a new one? Growing up, I remember all the Asian kids had common American first names, even if they also had Asian first names.
     
    Those Asian kids were likely East Asians. The Chinese, especially when they have English language skills, whether in Asia or here as immigrants, tend to adopt an Anglo-Saxon name for everyday use.

    Harmeet Dhillon is the child of Sikh immigrants from India, who tend not use Angl0-Saxon Christian nicknames here in America. Harmeet is a Punjabi language name.

    A former colleague and friend who is Indian, explained that even Nikki Haley and Bobby Jindal's first names are actually commonplace old-time nicknames in the Punjabi language which just happen to sound identical to names common in America. He also explained that Hindu Indian immigrants sometimes pick Sanskrit based names like Neel and Raj, which sound like "Neil" and short for "Roger." But oftentimes, he said, they just go for the straight Sanskrit names.

    But based on that, it seems to me that Dinesh D'Souza didn't adopt an Anglo name, as his last name is Portuguese, and thus European.

    Commenter Twinkie has often commented that data shows that Indian immigrants to America are resistant to cultural and social assimilation.

    I assume D’Souza is a Portuguese name and that his ancestors come from Goa, which was a Portuguese colony in India for 450 years until it was annexed by India in 1961. Like Hong Kong, colonialism was good for Goans – the Goan GDP per capita is 2.5x higher than the Indian average.

    And from a cultural standpoint, it was probably even more successful than the Hong Kong colonization-which is saying something given how Hong Kong remains very "British" in a lot of ways. But Goa-and the other overseas territories-were always viewed from Lisbon as integrally part of Portugal. There was never a movement to break away from the mother country like there was in Hong Kong in the 60s-it took an invading army to wrest Goa away. Unlike the Angolans, most Goans generally had full rights as Portuguese citizens. Salazar's cabinet and legislature had plenty of Goans in their ranks, as did universities in Portugal.

    To this day, Goa is very visibly different from the rest of India. It is even seen in the food: Vindaloo is traditionally made with pork and wine, two ingredients that would be very uncommon in the rest of India.

    Goa is no different from its neighboring regions. It's in southern India, which is generally doing a lot better than the Indian average. No thanks to colonialism here, which impoverished Goa as much as the other parts of India (we have the British to thank for that.)

    If you jokers love Portuguese colonialism so much, why don't you invite them to rule over you, eh?

    It’s not Eric Holder it goes back to the 1968 affirmative action law. It was part of the findings in the Griggs case in the early 1970s.

    Whites have been the only unprotected class since 1968. The United States Civil Commision long ago ruled that the 14th amendment does not apply to Whites.

    You are nuts. There was a long-running secession movement, somewhat low-key but nonetheless present. Indian invasion, followed by many appeals (ignored by Lisbon) starting from '47, was just the final act in a long-running saga. The locals in Goa are related to their neighbors, the Marathas, and speak a dialect of the Marathi language. Marathas have been among the most nationalist of Indians; it's the place where Hindu nationalism was born and still thrives. It's no wonder that the forces of Hindu nationalism are largely in control of Goa today.

    Someone mentioned in another thread how Steven Pinker pointed to political correctness in the mainstream media as pushing intelligence people to the alt-right. With the amount of fantasy and misinformation swirling in alt-right circles like these, I think a reverse exodus isn't too far off.

    Maybe I'm out of touch, but scanning through the James Damore file, what leaps out at me most is the question, "Does anyone actually work for a living anymore?"

    Vast amounts of time at the company supposedly on the cutting edge of productiveness, Google, are spent in what appear to be nonstop poz yakfests: publishing political manifestos and memes, lobbying for peer bonuses, discussing the proper way of announcing one's polygamy, lecturing on life as a "dragonkin plural being", etc.

    All strength and power to Mr. Damore, but looking over his lengthy memo, I can't help but think that when I worked in corporate America, I wouldn't have had time to compose such a thing, and had anyone reporting to me done so, I would have had ... reservations about their time management, even if I agreed with what they wrote.

    Is Google so rich that it can afford to be endlessly, epically stupid? Longevity despite imbecility was alleged about the even more rich USA, and we all know where that is heading...

    BTW, does Google actually make money from anything beyond it's online advertising monopoly that dates from the 1990s? From what I can tell, all of its side hustles, spin-offs, "moon-shots", etc. are money losers. Just a lot of heat/noise/flash to obscure that it still relies financially on that billion-dollar river of nickels that is AdWords.

    Depends on which trades. In my local area, the roofing trade is dominate by Mexican/Central American Mayans. Even regular mestizo Hispanics are being squeeze out. From a HBD perspective, they are ideally build for the task as a group. It's mesmerizing to see a group of them, working as a team get the job done in two days from start to finish.

    If you put same number of legacy Americans(white or black) on typical residential roof, you will likely collapse the roof joist from their weight. There is a reason why US/Europe used to use child labor for chimney sweeps.

    I’ve never understood why the wealthiest nation on earth is content to live in what are little more than sheds.
    Every time a hurricane strikes, I’m quite distressed by the carnage wrought on these expensive shanty-towns. For instance, the cottage I’m in right now was intended to house the poorest class of farm servant, yet has solid masonry walls two feet thick, tiny windows, and a Welsh slate roof, each slate at least 1/4″ thick (no eaves gap). Pit-sawn rafter pairs, i.e. half a tree, close-boarded. I clamber about on it without a second thought despite its age (sometime around 1850).
    I suppose our weather is just reliably worse than yours, without the extreme interruptions. And storm-cellars were an impossibility, they’d simply fill with water every winter, so best to have it above ground level?

    I never used to think about it that way, but I have, ever since a colleague visiting from a third-world country office asked me the same question-he was horrified that people would spend hundreds of thousands of dollars or more to live in dwellings that he viewed as akin to being flimsy shanties. He wasn't familiar with carpentry and box-frame home construction, of course, but he did have something of a point.

    In Europe, most of the old housing stock of people with any means was built to last for centuries, with brick and mortar or stone being the norm and half-timbering being less common. Even, today, with modern architectural styles, wood and plasterboard homes are the exception and not the rule.

    The other thing that must be strikings about housing here, to visitor, is the utter conformity in styles across the continental United States. You could drop someone blindfolded in an American suburb, and he'd be hard pressed to tell (at least from the style of the homes) whether he was in Idaho or Maryland. Some of it is, of course, post-War developer initiated, but home-buyers are remarkably narrow in their tastes and expectations, IMHO.

    I like this one, on page 43:

    Google Was Unable to Respond to Logical Arguments

    166. On November 15, 2015, a Google employee complained to Google HR regarding a highly offensive post from an employee in the Developer Product Group. The post stated:

    “If you put a group of 40-something white men in a room together and tell them to come up with something creative or innovative, they’ll come back and tell you how enjoyable the process was, and how they want to do it again, but they come up with fuck-­all as a result!” (emphasis added.)
     
    The Google employee stated that this statement was a violation of the Google Code of
    Conduct, and was creating a hostile workplace environment as it targeted Caucasians, males, and individuals over the age of 40.

    Google HR responded: “Given the context of the post and that [the employee’s] main point is to highlight that it is helpful to have diverse perspectives, it doesn’t appear that the post to [sic] violates our policies.”

    Perplexed, the Google employee responded to Google HR by replacing the term “40-something white men” with “women” and asked how that was not a breach of conduct. Google failed to respond.
     

    This is a good example of why this may indeed be fun.

    But the other point here about Google having damaging info on everyone including your lawyers is also valid. It’s not like they won’t play dirty, and along with their friends in government they have the means as well as the taste for that.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    I broke that policy today and I regret it.

    He obviously meant "a juror will want to see..." but you dishonestly chose to focus on the colloquial phrasing he used.

    And more to the point, any honest, decent juror would require strong evidence in order to rule in the plaintiff's favor, even if the ruling would be beneficial to the juror personally or to one of the groups to which the juror belongs. The extent to which our society is great is a function of the importance we place on evidence and facts over simple tribalism. You want our society to be a simple racial spoils system with kangaroo courts that make rulings based on the race of the people involved. That is absolutely disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself, assuming you even have that capacity.

    The White concept of justice based on facts & evidence is not a suicide pact.

    Whether I want it or not, we’re living in a racial spoils system with kangaroo court rulings based on the race of the people involved. It’s who-whom all the way down. Whites can’t keep standing on principle in this environment. It’s insane.

And there's very little that can fight against this sort of nature — the only thing I can think of is a strong religion with tight-knit "insular" communities (c.f. the Amish).

    Not really. Complaints like this are typically cobbled together by combining bits and pieces of disparate complaints in earlier cases that turned out well. Sometimes, the parts are not fully melded together. Obviously, Dhillion does not maintain a stable of Ivy League proof readers, but that is hardly a major issue.

    Notwithstanding such nitpicks, the complaint as a whole seems quite well researched and organized. It is understood that in a lawsuit of this nature, the precise contours of the claim will be successively refined and adapted in response to legal and factual challenges.

    No, you fool. The defendant is Sundar Pichai, who is also Indian. The lawyer would side with Google if they retained her first (and pay her more). She has no ideology other than getting fees.

    a) I only care about opposing feminism.
    b) I am a white guy who simply hates feminism (and race-nationalism, which is a form of feminism).

    Your primitive brain can only see things in terms of race, and you assume everyone is like that. In other words, you are more like a black than a successful white.

    So you have something against white women, right? As a brown man how did you like this movie:

    Number 7 refers to illegal hiring quotas. Quotas are not illegal. They are the law of the land. Except when the city bus drivers, police dispatchers and other city employees are 80 percent black in a city with a 14 percent black population. Then over representation is just fine.

    Numbers 3,4 & 5 are about a hostile work environment, not racial discrimination.

    Free speech only applies to government restrictions on speech. Businesses can restrict speech as much as they want.

    Does anyone know if this is a state or federal court lawsuit? I’m too lazy to look it up.

    You have to be a "protected class" to have rights? Is this that Eric Holder thing about how white people cannot be victims of racism? Has there been no movement on that at all with Sessions in?

    It’s not Eric Holder it goes back to the 1968 affirmative action law. It was part of the findings in the Griggs case in the early 1970s.

    Whites have been the only unprotected class since 1968. The United States Civil Commision long ago ruled that the 14th amendment does not apply to Whites.

    You won’t get your 14th amendment rights back until you reach 65 or become disabled, gay or transgender.

    I am not a great deal older than 27 (or whatever age he is in 2018), and I do recognize that the left doesn't play fair. It's who/whom all the way down with them. I understand that beating a dishonorable opponent can require acting dishonorably. But 27YO seems to be completely unscrupulous. A good person feels bad when he has to do bad things. And more to the point, in this case, it should not be difficult to find evidence that Google has acted discriminatorily towards white males.

    It is legal to discriminate against White males. It’s not just legal, it is mandated by numerous laws and court findings and enforced by numerous government agencies. Has been since 1968.

    That's true, but judges are supposed to pretend it's not, and it's supposed to be done discreetly and deniably so as not to alarm the helots. What Google did is so flagrant that I can easily imagine a California court ruling against Google.

    'Class action lawsuit' ... USA lawyers have a saying about these things, 'Bribed American judges, motherf-cker!'

    Google in court ... is like that scene early in 'Goodfellas' where the mafia kid's lawyer smiles his grin for the judge on the bench in front of him

    Google is the best friend the US bribe-taking judges have in the world

    If you know businesspeople or others, who have had the full 'experience' of the US court system, you learn that the US courts are nothing like portrayed in Hollywood movies or TV shows ... It is foolish to think that the rest of the government is corruptible but the judges are not in the game ... a game well-hidden by media and, well, by Google

    No company is more key to the US judge-lawyer bribery complex than Google ... the Google lawyers inviting and welcoming 'orders to Google' to hide the actions of their law firm friends

    Including the 'Google hyper-injunction', whereby Google itself, and the parties to the case, are all under gag order to not disclose that there is an order banning search results from Google

    Class action cases in general, go nowhere unless the Powers That Be see some interest in them going forward ... tho often indeed they run up many hundreds of thousands in legal bills - generously shared with the judges - before the lawyers say, 'Case dismissed, motherf-cker!'

    You are right. Class action law suits demanding that 4’10 80 pd Chinese women become firemen, or class action lawsuits demanding that illiterate blacks with criminal records become police officers always win.

    But a class action law suit demanding equal treatment for White mean will
    always be dismissed at the first motions hearing.

    Only thing I dispute in your post is that the judges are bribed. They don’t have to be bribed. They, like the rest of the elites want Whites exterminated.

    "4.Google’s open hostility for conservative thought is paired with invidious discrimination on the basis of race and gender, barred by law. Google’s management goes to extreme and illegal—lengths to encourage hiring managers to take protected categories such as race and/or gender into consideration as determinative hiring factors,to the detriment of Caucasian and malee mployees and potential employee sat Google."

    [1] Why is this English so substandard? The lack of a space after the period and after the comma, the misuse of a pair of dashes, and the incorrect word separation in the last few words, might be excused as some software glitch in copying text from the .pdf file, where the spacing is correct. But in the first sentence, why the dangling "barred by law"? Shouldn't there be a "which is" before this phrase? Also, the usual preposition with "hostility" is hostility "to" something (meaning "against"), not hostility "for" something (meaning "in favor of"). Was this document written by a non-native speaker of English?

    [2] If I were a judge or juror in this case, I'd want to see some specific evidence of the claim that the defendants were "ostracized, belittled, and punished". But maybe that's what discovery is for.

    As far as I can see, it’s standard.

    I assume D'Souza is a Portuguese name and that his ancestors come from Goa, which was a Portuguese colony in India for 450 years until it was annexed by India in 1961. Like Hong Kong, colonialism was good for Goans - the Goan GDP per capita is 2.5x higher than the Indian average.

    And from a cultural standpoint, it was probably even more successful than the Hong Kong colonization-which is saying something given how Hong Kong remains very "British" in a lot of ways. But Goa-and the other overseas territories-were always viewed from Lisbon as integrally part of Portugal. There was never a movement to break away from the mother country like there was in Hong Kong in the 60s-it took an invading army to wrest Goa away. Unlike the Angolans, most Goans generally had full rights as Portuguese citizens. Salazar's cabinet and legislature had plenty of Goans in their ranks, as did universities in Portugal.

    To this day, Goa is very visibly different from the rest of India. It is even seen in the food: Vindaloo is traditionally made with pork and wine, two ingredients that would be very uncommon in the rest of India.

    There was never a movement to break away from the mother country like there was in Hong Kong in the 60s-it took an invading army to wrest Goa away.

    You are nuts. There was a long-running secession movement, somewhat low-key but nonetheless present. Indian invasion, followed by many appeals (ignored by Lisbon) starting from ’47, was just the final act in a long-running saga. The locals in Goa are related to their neighbors, the Marathas, and speak a dialect of the Marathi language. Marathas have been among the most nationalist of Indians; it’s the place where Hindu nationalism was born and still thrives. It’s no wonder that the forces of Hindu nationalism are largely in control of Goa today.

    Someone mentioned in another thread how Steven Pinker pointed to political correctness in the mainstream media as pushing intelligence people to the alt-right. With the amount of fantasy and misinformation swirling in alt-right circles like these, I think a reverse exodus isn’t too far off.

    A lot of Asians don't do critical thinking at all. Their learning is memorization and drilling, period. Russia is Asian for these purposes. Argument is pretty much the worst thing ever to an Asian. The concept of arguing "well" can't exist in a totalitarian atmosphere where power justifies all -- you are persuasive if you are powerful or wealthy.

    I read most of it. I had to sit through something similar for years. The sessions weren’t we must hire more minorities. That was being done already. The sessions were mostly you are evil Whites.

    The session leaders were lefty Jewish women who pushed and pushed hoping we would respond and they would have a chance to make a complaint and get us fired. I just sat there and didn’t say a word.

    At least Damore was never brought up on racism charges because he refused to have sex with blacks.

    I read most of the pleading. Google can respond by claiming that Damore created and the other plaintiff created a hostile racist sexist environment for thousands of employees.

    Discrimination against White men is the law of the land.

    No wonder they work such long hours. With all those endless meetings and chat room discussions they need the extra time to get any work done.

    It seems to me that google was trying to tell fast track applicants for higher management positions that if the got the high level job they would have to deny promotion to White men.

    The military’s done that for years. If a Captain wants to become a Major he has to write bad reports about the Lieutenants under him to justify not re enlisting them.

    And do on up the chain of command until White male officers are eliminated.

    In California an employee can be fired at any time for no reason. The exception is race sex gay disabled …….. discrimination

    But Damore is a White man who by law can and should be discriminated against.

    You really should stick to diet threads. In California a 50% contingency fee contract would be viewed by the Bar as presumptively abusive, and would be difficult to enforce against the client. (Attorneys almost never win fee disputes with clients). Even for crackerjack trial horses, which this desi is not, 1/3 of the net recovery would be standard. California employers face a host of checks on their discretion to fire at-will. Employers can retain much of that common-law freedom through careful use of employee manuals and such, but those measures do not avail in the case of recognized classes of discrimination. Intentionally hostile work environment against white males is one of those categories. So far, there have been no reported cases involving workplaces where the reigning ethic is "white guys suck."

    California contingency fees are 50 percent except for workman’s compensation for which the fee is 15 percent.

    Where did you get the idea that California fees are 30 percent? Ask any attorney or anyone who has ever been a plaintiff.

    A California employe can be fired for no reason whatsoever unless the person fired is fired because he she belongs to a protected class.

    You posted exactly what I posted The only protection California employees have against being fired is if they belong to a protected class.

    But in their drive to get rid of White employees, employers find themselves with an entire workforce of protected class minorites. Von’s has done that to itself. It’s saddled with lots of useless, disruptive black and brown felons they can’t get rid of simply because they are black and brown.

    And 50 percent contingency fee is standard in California Even the starving hard scrabble attorneys won’t file withour 50 percent fee agreement

    And since the settlement checks go directly to the attorney, not the client I don’t see how the client can refuse to pay the attorney his 50 percent fee.

    What happens, the client leaves the money sitting in the attorneys trust account and goes and hires another attorney to get the 50 percent fee reduced to 30 percent?

    I am not a great deal older than 27 (or whatever age he is in 2018), and I do recognize that the left doesn't play fair. It's who/whom all the way down with them. I understand that beating a dishonorable opponent can require acting dishonorably. But 27YO seems to be completely unscrupulous. A good person feels bad when he has to do bad things. And more to the point, in this case, it should not be difficult to find evidence that Google has acted discriminatorily towards white males.

    It is not only that the Left long ago abandoned any honor standard. Even getting “honest, decent” jurors is pretty unusual nowadays, thank to labors of the Left.

    White males are not a protected class of persons; Conservatives are most certainly not, regardless of race or gender. This case is going nowhere. In fact, he will probably be forced to cover Google's legal costs.

    Dhillon seems like more of a publicity showboat than a crack litigator to me, and the complaint seems to bear that out. If her firm can at least get the class certified, then at that point it's common to bring in other firms with more experience and expertise, since a bigger payday becomes more likely. I hope it gets that far, since the discovery and the Google employee depositions should yield much entertainment, win or lose.

    So what? According to our ruling elites, and thus our courts, acting discriminatorily towards white males, especially those who are insufficiently Leftist, is perfectly a-okay. And that’s almost certainly what’s going to happen. We’ll find plenty of evidence of Google being anti-white, anti-male, etc., and the court will dutifully rule — wrapped up in suitable sophistical verbiage — that none of it constitutes a “hostile work environment” because white, male, etc. aren’t “protected classes”, and therefore that discriminating against them is perfectly legal.

    To the dismay of many Asians, standardized test scores are not (nor should they be, in any sane world) the sole metric used by American colleges in admissions determinations.

    The point of my comment is that institutions should be forced to make it explicit that they are forcing different people to different standards. That is all. I dont think standardized test scores are the only thing that matters.

    Sessions is far too busy with his anti-weed jihad to address pervasive institutional discrimination against the people that elected his administration.

    Well, there’s also the problem that if Sessions actually tried to “address pervasive institutional discrimination against the people that elected his administration,” those pervasive institutions, the proverbial “Swamp,” will destroy him. Because whatever it says on paper about the structure of government and who answers to whom, in reality they are more powerful than the AG, more powerful than Trump, more powerful than Congress; “The Swamp” are the true rulers of America, and all real power is theirs; their will is law, and there’s nothing, nothing, nothing we can do to dislodge them.

    The White concept of justice based on facts & evidence is not a suicide pact.

    Whether I want it or not, we're living in a racial spoils system with kangaroo court rulings based on the race of the people involved. It's who-whom all the way down. Whites can't keep standing on principle in this environment. It's insane.

White people simply aren’t capable of the kind of tribalism one needs to thrive in the racial spoils system — it’s part of what made us special and so successful in the past, but is now quite maladaptive. And there’s very little that can fight against this sort of nature — the only thing I can think of is a strong religion with tight-knit “insular” communities (c.f. the Amish). And that is rather in short supply these days.

    I read most of it. I had to sit through something similar for years. The sessions weren’t we must hire more minorities. That was being done already. The sessions were mostly you are evil Whites.

    The session leaders were lefty Jewish women who pushed and pushed hoping we would respond and they would have a chance to make a complaint and get us fired. I just sat there and didn’t say a word.

    At least Damore was never brought up on racism charges because he refused to have sex with blacks.

    I read most of the pleading. Google can respond by claiming that Damore created and the other plaintiff created a hostile racist sexist environment for thousands of employees.

    Discrimination against White men is the law of the land.

    No wonder they work such long hours. With all those endless meetings and chat room discussions they need the extra time to get any work done.

    It seems to me that google was trying to tell fast track applicants for higher management positions that if the got the high level job they would have to deny promotion to White men.

    The military’s done that for years. If a Captain wants to become a Major he has to write bad reports about the Lieutenants under him to justify not re enlisting them.

    And do on up the chain of command until White male officers are eliminated.

    In California an employee can be fired at any time for no reason. The exception is race sex gay disabled ........ discrimination

    But Damore is a White man who by law can and should be discriminated against.

    I can’t wait too see google’s response.

    Indeed, and none of this is going away. It’s just going to keep getting worse… and worse… and worse… and worse…

    It is legal to discriminate against White males. It’s not just legal, it is mandated by numerous laws and court findings and enforced by numerous government agencies. Has been since 1968.

    That’s true, but judges are supposed to pretend it’s not, and it’s supposed to be done discreetly and deniably so as not to alarm the helots. What Google did is so flagrant that I can easily imagine a California court ruling against Google.

    I've never understood why the wealthiest nation on earth is content to live in what are little more than sheds.
    Every time a hurricane strikes, I'm quite distressed by the carnage wrought on these expensive shanty-towns. For instance, the cottage I'm in right now was intended to house the poorest class of farm servant, yet has solid masonry walls two feet thick, tiny windows, and a Welsh slate roof, each slate at least 1/4" thick (no eaves gap). Pit-sawn rafter pairs, i.e. half a tree, close-boarded. I clamber about on it without a second thought despite its age (sometime around 1850).
    I suppose our weather is just reliably worse than yours, without the extreme interruptions. And storm-cellars were an impossibility, they'd simply fill with water every winter, so best to have it above ground level?

    I’ve never understood why the wealthiest nation on earth is content to live in what are little more than sheds.

    I never used to think about it that way, but I have, ever since a colleague visiting from a third-world country office asked me the same question-he was horrified that people would spend hundreds of thousands of dollars or more to live in dwellings that he viewed as akin to being flimsy shanties. He wasn’t familiar with carpentry and box-frame home construction, of course, but he did have something of a point.

    In Europe, most of the old housing stock of people with any means was built to last for centuries, with brick and mortar or stone being the norm and half-timbering being less common. Even, today, with modern architectural styles, wood and plasterboard homes are the exception and not the rule.

    The other thing that must be strikings about housing here, to visitor, is the utter conformity in styles across the continental United States. You could drop someone blindfolded in an American suburb, and he’d be hard pressed to tell (at least from the style of the homes) whether he was in Idaho or Maryland. Some of it is, of course, post-War developer initiated, but home-buyers are remarkably narrow in their tastes and expectations, IMHO.

    Numinous is a good example of the quality of workers India is sending over. His education is so poor that he has never even learned the basics of critical thinking or making qualitative comparisons.

    I was in Delhi last year. Why is the entire 1000 square KM area around Delhi covered in smoke for much of the year? It's so thick you can barely see in front of you some days. Rates of lung cancer are skyrocketing. Quantitatively the worst air quality in the world, right up there with China. And you think you can compare India to the US? Massive FAIL. Fix your own country first loser.

    And I actually kind of like India but NOT people like Numinous. I like humble Indian villagers and office workers who only speak Hindi more than people like Numinous. He actually is a disgrace to the sacred traditions of India, combining the worst of both worlds... Indian standards of education and quality with American materialism. Americans who have lived there for generations have developed adaptations to the materialism in the form of shamanism or what have you, but Indians who arrive have no immunity and become WAY WORSE, also giving up their own sacred traditions for a 50K a year job that we laugh at. SAD!

    A lot of Asians don’t do critical thinking at all. Their learning is memorization and drilling, period. Russia is Asian for these purposes. Argument is pretty much the worst thing ever to an Asian. The concept of arguing “well” can’t exist in a totalitarian atmosphere where power justifies all — you are persuasive if you are powerful or wealthy. You hear this a lot from IT and I’ve seen it a couple of times at university: flawless grasp of the material, no ability at all to do stuff with it, like the episode in Brave New World where the kid can recite paragraphs but not explain them.
