    Sure, but you’ll need your own butter since I don’t use that.

    Oregon Bakery Fires Employees For Denying Black Woman Service After Closing

    The bakery's statement says that even though it does not consider the employees to be racist and that they were following the business's protocol of closing at 9 p.m., they were fired because "sometimes impact outweighs intent." The bakery also says in the statement that the way the employees went about denying the woman service, "lacked sensitivity and understanding of the racial implications at work."

    The bakery has also volunteered to participate in Portland's second "Reparations Happy Hour", a black-only event in which whites donate money, and the hosting business hands out $10 bills to all "black, brown, and minority ethnicities" who walk into the business.

    :confused:

    Essentially, the employer admits that the actions of the employee weren't in any way discriminatory. Which is to say that, the person denied service was treated just as any other would be. That said, the actions taken by the employer here constitute textbook racism, just not in the sense people are disposed to recognize. And this, is where we are in US society. Which is why I no longer have even a semblance of an eff to give about the "plight".

    In exceedingly more important news, it is bothering me that it is now too hot and humid here to sit out on the porch without the fan running, which completely jacks up the burn on my cigar. :no:

    The lady who got them fired is a "professional equity activist".

    Make sure you have a few $10 bills for the 'happy hour'. :D

    Definitely too hot without the fan. The good news is that the foliage has recovered nicely after Irma. I am also bothered however, by my bicep tendons at the shoulders today, after doing overhead presses with the 50's despite the autoimmune disease. :no:

    Meaning you had a couple of interviews and they never called you back, or that they offered you a job and you didn't pass their HR background check?
