Russ1642: I heard on Fox that racism had been eliminated in America.
Tetrazphere: Typical ignorant Good ol' Boy attitude making it easy to validate the victim-mentality in the black culture and to project this idiotic worldview onto all white people "See! See! This is how white people really think!!". Similar to the extreme way of how certain western images are used as fodder for terrorist recruitment.For those interested in real race relations progress, we can't just wait for these archaic Boss Hogg sounding fossils to be history for that progress to be made, there are always going to be these distractions on both sides. These worldviews don't just go extinct, they get transcended and made obsolete. It's going to take appropriate outrage on both sides in issues like this, whether it's a black or white incident from people who have a track record of continuity, regardless of race./conspiracy possibility- The 2 black guys may have got the idea a few weeks ago after the Donald Sterling debacle. Maybe set a relaxed tone and environment and subtly and jokingly brought up the issue around the known bigot, making it seem like they were interested and curious as to "how things used to be", and not offended so they could coax and create the perfect condition to tape record and file a lawsuit.
Friction8r: whidbey: Friction8r: I'm gonna smoke a bowl from my condo balcony while listening to a roaring river and ponder this...love me some mountains and legal herb.So what do social conservatives think of when they're stoned?How funny Richard Nixon looked?Tonight I'll be thinking of how awesome my vacation locale is. GoPro Mountain Games start Thursday!
cwolf20: dj_bigbird: "Why can't I use the microwave, man?""Because you are not white."I seriously doubt that a racist cracker said "you are not white" and not "you ain't white"No. Some of the racists out in the world actually know how to speak correctly.
tjfly: Russ1642: I heard on Fox that racism had been eliminated in America.I thought Obama eliminated racism.
Ilmarinen: ZMugg: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Waaaaaaait a second here. Let's not all jump to hasty conclusions here. There could be an innocent, non-racist explanation here.Go on.Let's see:"I need to put a sign here that says 'white people only'.""That's when we hang you""He pulled his pants down in front of us and told us to kiss his white tail"I'm thinking performance art
phrawgh: Did someone say whites only?American patriots, it's time to take our country back!
The Southern Dandy: This is all just Librul Media bias. The Supreme Court already said there is no racism in this country anymore. We have a black muslin President for Chrissakes.
Mr. Ekshun: Solid State Vittles: The owner of the cotton gin said he had no comment, but did say he outsources the management at that warehouse.That's actually a pretty significant one comment. It's still YOUR WAREHOUSE. The buck stops over there!Does anyone have a buck schedule? The stops around here are unmarked and the timing appears entirely random.
Cyno01: Really? Cotton? Black people would still work in the cotton industry?
puny: Followup in a week or so: The supervisor is sent to some sort of sensitivity training, but gets to keep his job. The man in the article, however, loses his job for violating the privacy of the supervisor by recording him without permission.
