The first day MaKiya Congious wore her Black Lives Matter mask to work, no one seemed to bat an eye. In fact, several customers at the Whataburger location in Fort Worth complimented her on the face covering, which is also emblazoned with a fist.
But when the Black 19-year-old returned to work the following Monday, a White customer threatened to call the hamburger chains corporate office over the mask, prompting a chain of events that led Congiouss managers to fire her and call the police on their own employee.
As Whataburger insists it did nothing wrong, the former cashier filed a discrimination complaint Wednesday with Texas state officials, alleging she was let go specifically because of her race and the message on her mask.
Its not a political thing, Congious said at a news conference Wednesday. Its just a statement that says Black Lives Matter because we do matter.
If we allow any non-Whataburger slogans as part of our uniforms, we have to allow all slogans, the company said in a statement to KDFW on Wednesday. This could create tension and conflict among our employees and our customers. It is our job as a responsible brand to proactively keep our employees and customers safe."

Good LORD. . .*sigh*
I would never buy prepared food from an admitted racist / leftist. You just dont know what they could put in it.
OK, that is new. We’ve seen the capitalized “Black” but this is the first time I have seen a capitalized “White.”
Wow. High comma and everything.
It absolutely is. It's political, anti-white, anti-cop, anti-anything not black.
“Its not a political thing,
I always capitalize all races now. Avoids those pesky flare ups from the triggered snowflakes.
You do not have First Amendment Rights while you are at work.
BLM most definitely is a political slogan.
What if one of the employees wore a swastika or KKK mask? How would little Miss MoffitCongo like that?
“Not political,” my @$$!
She wasn't fired. She quit and then wouldn't leave the store, so she was then trespassing and the police were called.
I called corporate Big Lots in Ohio when I went to my local store and a black employee was wearing BLM tee shirt on the job..................
My I’m Contagious.................
She wore a BLM mask to work at Whataburger. After a customer complained, she was fired. And Angels got their wings.
Teo Armus - black lives matter is a marxist/communist organization that sees the Untied States as an enemy.
It has NOTHING to do with ‘black lives’ ... unless those ‘lives’ can be used against our country.
It’s similar to wearing a swastika as a face mask during World War II... Does that add some perspective Teo?
I was always under the impression that an apostrophe was substituted for a letter in order to shorten or conjoin words....So lets have some fun
Man Kiya (Identifies as tranny)
Mac Kiya (Should work at Mcdonals instead)

I am sick of idiot names with no significance but in your face culturalism.
