Coming on a Bicycle: FloydA: I still don't understand the point she was trying to make.  Does she actually think white people are immune?

That's what I'm confused about. But if that's the case - how is that bad? I mean, it's stupid - but bad?


I read it as she's saying "Africa is a continent full of superstitious, uneducated blacks who live in huts and have no money and no access to the kind of medical care that us whites can get there, haha, isn't that funny!  Their HIV transmission rates are through the roof because they're impoverished, unlike me, a privileged white person who would never have to have sex with those people, haha!  I'm lovin my life biatches, gotta catch my flight now!

OgreMagi: You are suggesting that you should give up your right to free speech if your employer demands it.  Turn this around.  What if you were fired because you publicly supported gay rights, or abortion, or gun rights, or any number of other issues.  Depending on your location, each of those stances could cause "negative publicity".  And given how easy it is to get information on someone via the internet, your employer could be easily discovered.

Don't support her firing simply because you found her statement offensive.  That's how you end up losing rights.


How many times in the threads on this site alone has it been made clear free speech doesn't apply to privately owned companies? Is there some manner of interpretive dance that can make it clearer?

Your Hind Brain: OtherLittleGuy: Johnson: Researcher: I'm not sure how far you can really climb in the PR game if you've caused drunken PR disasters.


She'll be back someplace else.  Her father is a SA billionaire.
How do you think she got this "job" that lets her flit about all over the world in the first place?
Now another rich person's kid can have that job.

That being said, she may have to change her name. Its kind of toxic now after all the PR exposure.

Well, if "Sacco" is now out, how about "Vanzetti"?

Or would that just be anarchy?

You spent a long time on that one, didntcha?

I racked my Braintree.

/okay, my South Braintree.


Does your Braintree have five corners?

Stay classy.


She Tweeted.

She told on her self.

If I go on my Twitter and post "LOL I WANNA SUCK RANDONG ALL IN MY CLASSROOM ALL DAY ERRY DAY #sexwithstudnents" and I'm a teacher, I will be fired.

Eh, I hate to see someone fired over a tweet, but what she said was just so, so wrong. White women are a major target of rape in Africa, so she's definitely at risk for getting AIDS. I really don't know what she was thinking.

Seconded.

Also, I don't think her getting canned was ever in doubt.

She might want to consider another career, or less alcoholism. Or both. Probably both. I'm not sure how far you can really climb in the PR game if you've caused drunken PR disasters.

Still, who knows, maybe stormfront needs a PR rep. She is, as she pointed out, white.
