Black Executive Allegedly Fired From BP For Braided Hair And Ethnic Clothing. We're Not Joking.

Black Executive Allegedly Fired From BP For Braided Hair And Ethnic Clothing. We're Not Joking.

“so, if a black person doesn't perm their hair, iron it...etc they are being "ethnic" while a white person who lets their hair grow "naturally" is being "normal" and not "ethnic"?”

TYPICAL2 on Dec 9, 2013 at 23:03:06

“Exactly, and sometimes the white persons "natural" hair is stringy and very smelly.”

“i was thinking more that they'd hit americans in latin america, like cancun. hezbollah/iran does, or tries to do that to israeli civilians (e.g. cyprus,bulgaria,thailand,africa...etc). soft targets in soft countries?”

“They will attack Americans in Latin America and elsewhere if given the opportunity, but they certainly won't treat our neighbors any differently. If you have ever been to a Mexican airport, you would have surely noticed that those security people are suspicious and absolutely paranoid about anything. They are fully aware that the terrorists are not going to make any distinction between us and them. Remember the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania? Only a handful of Americans were killed in that attack, but hundreds of innocent Kenyans and Tanzanians were slaughtered.”

“stop being thick, on purpose. is that called trolling? the article stated that she had to call multiple times. apparantly, you haven;t had too many dealings with the police in th e south, LA...etc.”

“I lived in the south for many years. There's lots of racism still present. This isn't one of those cases. Stop seeing racism where there isn't any. The cops did their job and protected a child until a very unlikely story could be confirmed. Good for them.”

“what is the republican plan? if they want to have a debate then present one other than keeping 44 million americans without healthcare and many others with subpar health care.

oh, wait a minute, this is exactly like romneycare in taxachussetes, which is the heritage foundations answer to hillarycare during the clinton presidency. so, we have doubly blessed republican plan that the republicans don't like. they are sounding like my 2 year old: " i don't want it i want this. i don't want this a want that. no, i don't want anything. waaah, waaaaah, waaaaaaaaah!!!" that's what i've been hearing.”

“not neccesarily since anyone can make a note like that. however, the cuffs weren't neccesary and the phone call, from another police station, no less, was sufficient. after that...they were being racist.”

“or, more aptly, sensenbrenner should be in jail for treason since he is the one who wrote the patriot act so broadly that it has been misused. just one case was when the texas state congressmen ran to oklahamo to prevent a quorum on a vote and texas invoked the patriot act to forcible make them return to texas. one of many "legal" misuses of that act.”
