Google Faces New Anti-White Men Discrimination Charge

Google Faces New Anti-White Men Discrimination Charge

Google is being sued for discriminatory practices against white men–again—but this time, the accusation is that Google would only consider female, black, and Latinx applicants. Currently, Google’s employees are 69% male and 91% white or Asian. So, yes, some diversity initiatives might be in order.

However, a former YouTube employee claims Google implemented policies that increase diversity by excluding white and Asian men from consideration. The employee also claims he was fired in November 2017 in retaliation for speaking out about the policies.

And this isn’t the only problem Google has with its workforce. The giant company is also being sued for underpaying its female employees, firing an employee for pro-diversity postings, and creating a culture that encouraged sexual harassment.
