Hi,I have heard from a reliable source that the ACLU only shows to ultra left causes unless you pay 25K up front for them to consider it. Those folks are not looking out for white boys.
Take hate crimes prosecution. Ever hear of a monority being prosicuted for beating and raping and killing a white woman?
They knew who would show up to fight with protesters.Hi,
So are you saying the White Nationalist and KKK payed the ACLU 25k to defend and support their right for Freedom of Speech during the Charlottesville VA incidents? The city tried to revoke their protest permits but it was the ACLU that went against the city.
Thank you for the response. While I might not necessarily think a person wearing such a shirt is a racist, I now realize that a reasonable person (you) would think the shirt was racist. I must confess that it seems Orwellian that employers are judging employees by the impressions that their adornment makes on others.Justice, Mississippi, the Confederate Battle Flag, and a noose on a t-shirt are a witches' brew of provocation.
Years ago I saw a bumper sticker that said, "If I Had Known That It Was Gonna Be Like This, I Would Have Picked My Own Damned Cotton."
Then, as now, I don't have to exercise a wild leap of surmise to glue the constituent parts together and come up with a fair estimate of intent.
And no, I didn't satisfy your informational requirements, as I didn't understand that it was necessary.
The hospital is undoubtedly an at-will employer, its employee showed poor taste in promulgating a backwards viewpoint on his chest, and yes, it's pretty much racist.
My roll? How about a King's Hawaiian stuffed with ham and cheese?Thank you for the response. While I might not necessarily think a person wearing such a shirt is a racist, I now realize that a reasonable person (you) would think the shirt was racist.

Again in your roll as a reasonable person, what do you think of my assertion in post #15 that anyone wearing a Che Gueavra shirt supports the murder of Homosexuals?
So if the guy is a racist, and we are not going to allow racists to have jobs, then how should racists support themselves? Should racism be considered a disability so that the taxpayer can support them or should they have to all be meth dealers?Yea, I think the noose is a bridge too far to argue that it's not an intentionally racist shirt.
It's a shame, because I don't see the Confederate Battle Flag as being inherently racist in and of itself. There are plenty of people who believe it's a symbol of Southern Pride, especially young people. There was a story of a back kid in college who was taking shit for having one in his dorm room, and he said that to him is was a Southern Pride thing.
That said, the noose on the flag is clearly a symbol of racism. Pretty much lynching was the MOD, and I've never heard of someone saying a noose was a symbol of anything other than that...
I'm not sure what the controversy is? He shouldn't be fired? I'd fire him if I had a business and he appeared in that shirt on the national news. As far as I was concerned that shirt would be an attack on me and my business, so fuck him!
There is no reason to "hate blacks", anymore than there is a reason to "hate whites", or reds or, purples or anyone else. I hate ghetto culture, but that doesn't mean I hate black people, and if anyone argues that black people ARE ghetto culture then it is they who are racist.The guy's from Olive Branch, just down the road from Memphis. If he does hate blacks, I'm sure he has good reason.
Che Guevara is now arcane? I would have thought your experience and education broader than that...My roll? How about a King's Hawaiian stuffed with ham and cheese?
And no, I'm not ready to write an opinion on Che Guevara and the murder of homosexuals, as I have insufficient background in this most arcane of political history nexuses. Allow me the courtesy of a reading week before I approach the blue book exam.
I like the right wing lore (which is most likely BS) that he groveled and begged for his life like most of the civilians he executed.Che Guevara is now arcane? I would have thought your experience and education broader than that...
When you get to the end of the story Che gets smoked with an M2 carbine.
Chicken or egg.There is no reason to "hate blacks", anymore than there is a reason to "hate whites", or reds or, purples or anyone else. I hate ghetto culture, but that doesn't mean I hate black people, and if anyone argues that black people ARE ghetto culture then it is they who are racist.
Racism is simply bullshit, and 99% of the country either knows that, or they are racist themselves.
Racism is seeing everything through the lens of "race", which is a lie in itself BS, because human beings are all the same "race" and merely different skin colors, fact.
Hi,I might be wrong, but I'm not seeing any kind of medical degrees or certifications on this one's illustrious resume,
Oh, you just played the 23&me card!So, in the eyes of the beholder, a shirt, a rebel flag, noose, and the words "Mississippi Justice", worn by a black person would be a very strong protest shirt, encouraging a vote for change, to remove the last vestiges of Jim Crow, from that county in Mississippi, so, without knowing the person, or their history, accusations of racism are opinions of people who cant see the forest for the trees, who choose not to look deeper.
And that's just another opinion, but reasonable. Reasonable doubt is a doubt for which you can articulate a reason....
Flame suit on.

Something of no surprise in the above. Lol
What happens if now a group of Black men kill him? Will the Press be responsible? Sometimes it goes 1 way. Not arguing, just wondering what is equal Protection under the law?Hi,
So what happens IF the hospital kept him at his post and his next black patient dies. How many here think the hospital is NOT going to get a huge lawsuit claiming he let the patient die because he does not like blacks and that they use that picture as evidence?
Do you think jurors are going to award more or less settlement based on the hospital employee being seen in that shirt alone?
"Will to work" States equal "Will to fire" also..it does not just go 1 way.
