You’re Fired! Company Terminated Employee Who Called Cops On Black Man at Swimming Pool

Some of us may be glad this happened.  At least, some kind of justice has been done.  A white woman was fired from her job after she phoned the police when a Black man wore socks at a swimming pool.  But it really should not have come to this. 

This is just the latest of similar stories about places such as Starbucks and Denny's. 

We are not allowed to hold meetings at Starbucks.  Nor can we stop at a gas station to buy drinks for children after a nonviolence demonstration.  Not without some white employee calling the cops on us.  But at least we can wear our socks in the pool. 

It should never come to this.  We MUST Learn to treat each other with respect. 

Niecy Nash received some very interesting responses to the spoof telephone helpline she created for racists

And then there's the Ryanair incident.  (Warning:  this contains offensive language.)  Yep, we definitely gotta avoid flying anywhere with Ryanair. 

And remember the nail shop incident? 

This nonsense really has to stop.
