Google recruiter was told to discriminate when hiring

Google has appeared in the news headlines for a wrong reason once again. Not very long ago, the company was under fire for firing James Damore, who was dismissed for writing a memo where he stated that men and women are different and tend to have different preferences. This time, an ex Google recruiter has publicly stated that he has been specifically instructed not to hire White and Asian male candidates, regardless of their skills. He has now filed a lawsuit, alleging that he has been dismissed for refusing to follow these discriminatory policies, which are illegal in the US.

Of course, there is a possibility that the recruiter in question has been dismissed by Google for genuine performance-related reasons and simply decided to take advantage of recent wave of lawsuits against the company. However, based on the fact that, not so long ago, James Damore was dismissed by Google for doing something that an ordinary person would find neither controversial nor offensive, the recruiter's allegations are believable.

After being fired, James Damore has given a number of interviews, where he shared insider information about Google. He revealed that the company forced its employees to attend "diversity training" and instructed them to give preference to ethnic minority and female candidate when hiring and promoting. However, according to James Damore, Google insisted on keeping these practices off the record, in case they violate US discrimination laws.

The reason why James Damore was dismissed is well known, as both him and the company have admitted that he was fired for publishing the memo about diversity within Google. However, according to him, the memo wasn't something that he just randomly decided to publish. Himself and his co-workers were compelled to write diversity-related essays during one of the diversity training seminars they were required to attend. The essay that James Damore has written stated an obvious fact that men and women tend to make different choices due to the differences in physiology.

Another point that the memo has mentioned is the fact that Google is dominated by people with strongly left-leaning political views and that it became an ideological echo chamber, where people with more conservative views get silenced. Dismissal of James Damore by Google strongly suggests that this may well be the case. So, it appears that the company whose founding motto was "don't be evil" has, over time, morphed into something opposite to what this motto stated.
