谷歌遭遇集体诉讼 被控歧视保守派男性白人
Google accused of discriminating against white male conservatives

来源:FT中文网    2018-01-09 13:11



        Google has been hit with a class-action lawsuit alleging discrimination against conservative-minded white men, in a legal case that threatens a fresh bout of the culture wars that engulfed the internet company last summer.        谷歌(Google)遭遇一起集体诉讼,它被控歧视思想保守的男性白人。这宗官司可能会引发新一轮的文化战争。去年夏天,文化战争席卷了这家互联网公司。
        The suit has been brought by James Damore, an engineer who was sacked in August after his questioning of Google policies to increase the hiring of women and minorities caused an outcry inside the company. It also names a second engineer, David Gudeman, who has also claimed wrongful termination after leaving the company in 2016. The company did not immediately have a response to the suit.        这起诉讼是由去年8月遭谷歌解雇的工程师詹姆斯•达莫尔(James Damore)提起的。达莫尔曾对谷歌增聘女性和少数族裔的政策提出质疑,这一质疑在公司内部引发强烈抗议,而后达莫尔遭到解雇。共同提起诉讼的还有另一名工程师戴维•古德曼(David Gudeman),他在2016年离开谷歌后也声称遭到不当解雇。谷歌没有立即就这起诉讼作出回应。
        Since leaving Google, Mr Damore has spoken out widely against the company, attacking it for what he calls “groupthink” over gender and other diversity issues. His case became a rallying point for conservatives last year at a time when cultural battles stirred by President Donald Trump were intensifying nationally.        自离开谷歌以来,达莫尔广泛发表了批评该公司的言论,抨击了他所称的在性别和其他多样性问题上的“群体思维”。去年,在美国总统唐纳德•特朗普(Donald Trump)引发的文化斗争在全美愈演愈烈之际,达莫尔一案成为凝聚保守派的一个焦点。
        The class action lawsuit, filed in superior court in California on Monday, was brought on behalf of all employees whom Google is alleged to have discriminated against either because of “their perceived conservative political views . . . their male gender . . . [or] their Caucasian race”.        周一在加州高等法院提起的集体诉讼,是代表涉嫌因“他们看上去保守的政治观点……他们的男性性别……(或)他们的高加索人种”而遭谷歌歧视的所有员工提起的。
        The lawsuit claims that there is “open hostility for conservative thought” at the company and that people who diverge from the mainstream are singled out for expressing views on subjects such as diversity hiring policies, bias sensitivity and social justice.        该诉讼称,在谷歌,“对保守思想存在公开的敌意”,偏离主流思想的人被单挑出来就多元招聘政策、偏见敏感度和社会正义等话题发表看法。
        Employees are “ostracised, belittled and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males”, the suit alleges. It accuses Google of being an “ideological echo chamber” that is hostile to some workers, and of maintaining illegal hiring quotas for women and minorities. The suit will move forward only if a judge certifies it as a valid action on behalf of an entire class of workers.        该诉讼称,员工“因其非正统政治观点,以及他们生为高加索人种和(或)男性等附加的罪过而受到排斥、贬低和惩罚”。该诉讼指责谷歌是一个对某些员工怀有敌意的“意识形态回音室”,为女性和少数族裔保有非法的招聘配额。这起诉讼要想向前推进,需要法官确认它是代表全体员工提起的有效诉讼。
        Mr Damore was dismissed by Sundar Pichai, Google’s chief executive, after writing an internal memo questioning the company’s diversity policies. His paper was widely circulated and aroused a backlash inside Google. But his treatment brought an outcry from conservatives who saw Mr Pichai’s reaction as an attack on open discussion of an important social issue.        在撰写了一份质疑谷歌多元化政策的内部备忘录后,达莫尔被该公司首席执行官桑德尔•皮查伊(Sundar Pichai)解雇。他的文章被广泛传阅,在谷歌内部引起反弹。但他受到的处理引起保守派人士的强烈抗议,他们认为皮查伊对此事的反应是向公开讨论一个重要社会问题发起的攻击。
        Among the allegations, the lawsuit claims that “the presence of Caucasians and males was mocked with ‘boos’ during company-wide weekly meetings” at Google.        除了其他指控,该诉讼还声称,在谷歌,“全公司周会期间,高加索人种和男性的出席会被喝倒彩。”
