Google executive Karan Bhatia told the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday that thousands of his employees saying a conservative black woman's opinion did not matter was no problem, since Google has nearly 100,000 employees around the world.

According to Breitbart, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked Bhatia why Google's Artificial Intelligence counsel disbanded rather than keep Kay Coles James, president of the Heritage Foundation. 2,500 Google employees reportedly signed a petition supporting removing James, calling her opinions "not valid" and "not worthy of inclusion."
