  • I hate the world we live in now!.

    I'm just going to say this now. If it is wrong for one person to use a word, it is wrong for everyone to use that word. I'm so fucking tired of this double standard and the bullshit cultural appropriation nonsense.

    What word(s) are you referring to? Please expand in great detail.

        I'm thinking he might be referring to someone saying a word because it's in a song lyrics then getting in trouble.

        It's best not to use that word if you are not black.

                No, just another story of someone singing a song and getting in trouble for it. As in fired. Three guys I work with 2 black and one white, were singing (well rapping) to music on a smoke break. Someone told the manager, another black guy, they heard the white say the N word while singing the lyrics of the song. The white guy gets immediately suspended until they review it. Manager confirms through security footage that he indeed does say that word (at the same time his two coworkers also say it) and separated him from the company with a severance package. Because we work under a contract, the manager used a clause about conduct which reflects poorly on the company as the reason. His only evidence of bad conduct is a tip from.one employee(not one of the 3) and viseo showing 3 people were all participating in the same behavior. Only one of the 3 was punished. It's bullshit. I didn't like the guy, but he shouldn't have lost his job over that.

                  FIFY. Don't feed into double standards.

                      Funny, I’d say a “Christian” would be better off not working for a transgender too but... here we are.

                      Anyway, if this went down the way DS described then the whole thing is stupid. For one, listening to rap music in groups on your smoke break is like a McDonalds employee story. Two, the fact that any time at all was spent on breaking down security footage to see if a guy repeated a particular part of a song lyric is retarded. Three, any employer that thinks people should be able to use profanity and racial slurs in any context at work based on what they look like is even more retarded. In most of the corporate world, saying nigga isn’t allowed period.

                        What does being a Christian have anything to do with working for a transgender person?

                        I agree 100% with the entire second paragraph though.

                          Well I could give you bible verses, but seeing as how you ignore the Bible when it comes to gay marriage, gender issues, abortion, and seemingly everything else, I’m not sure I should waste my time.

                            First of all: WHO THE FUCK TAKES SMOKE BREAKS IN 2019?

                            Secondly, don't do stupid crap. I can tell you the reason why this was handled the way it was handled: You have to have proof that crap like this went down(So you don't get sued), so you have to have an "Investigation". It's stupid in the fact that the supervisor could have easily sat the guy down and asked, gotten the context and then used the context with what was already known about the guy. If you have a guy who consistently does stupid crap this is a fireable offense. Someone who hasn't shown any kind of bigoted behavior, it's probably a write up. No competent manager is going to let someone talented go, just based on someone quoting a song, unless there was more going on. I think that there's a lot of stuff missing from this story, but we know some people just want something to whine about. Here's an idea, if you are quoting something that contains something that could be construed as a racial slur, just leave the slur out. I remember joking around with a coworker, and we were quoting "Casino". Guess what I didn't say? Exactly. Why? Because I knew that certain terms were derogatory towards Italians and Jewish people.

                              The only way you can make it seem like it was racial is if you think the white guy taking a smoke break with two black dudes and listening to rap music is racist. Now I’m no expert, but if I’m playing “spot the racist”, that guy’s pretty far down on my list.
