"Just referring to me as not being intelligent, very stupid because of my colour."

No, it's probably because you can't spell "color".

"They had a statue of a black man hanging in the window with tape around its neck, hanging from the ceiling as a noose and tie as they would lynch back in slavery days," he said.

I don't think they lynched slaves. Why destroy your property like that?

Oh good. A thread where racists can come in and say racist things and then pretend it's all a joke because they're also cowards.

POW! nailed it. Is there a prize?

Stay classy Nova Scotia.

That'd get you a promotion to at least Sergeant in a Texas PD for noticing that. That's some nice police work, Sarg.

What couple of dickheads.  There are plenty of reasons to not like someone without bringing in skin color, religion, or sexuality.

For example, I think Freddie Mercury was goofy as hell because of his jacked up teeth.
And Michael Jackson was just all-around weird, mainly because of his freaky plastic surgery addiction.
And Hitler, well...he was a terrible painter.

No, Nova Scotia totally fits the Florida moniker.

Newfies are kind of like a weird Irish cousin, they seem nice enough, they eat and drink the weirdest stuff and you have no idea what they are saying but you assume its English.

They'd lynch ones that ran away, laid a finger on the property owner, or got too uppity and decided to learn to read.

Serious question: did lynching start in Lynchburg, or is the town named after a bunch of lynch mobs?

If you're talking about Lynchberg, TN, it got it's name from the bench tree that was in the center of the original town which was used as a gallows for criminals when it was first established.

I thought it was Placerville, California, which has had a hanging effigy downtown for decades, celebrating the historic event which gave it its previous name, Hangtown. Some context.

Hebrews, actually. But I understand your mistake. Nobody in Egypt was called a Jew back then. Hebrew.

Lots of ex-slaves ended up in Nova Scotia. There's a remarkably large black population with very few other visible minorities other than aboriginals, and the blacks have not had an easy time of it.
 
2013-09-04 11:54:31 PM
And Elsworth Bottomley is an awesome name.

ok
1) i thought there were no black folks in canada
2) its not the same if he is being judged on his colour

Racist employees were dealt with appropriately.  Case closed, right?  No?  Well fortunately if you disagree, you can demand the Canadian thought police double-plus punish the store.
