I know this isn't the most PC of titles, but I couldn't think of anything better to describe what I'm going to talk about. I'm going to try and take a personal story of legal racism that happened to me, and intertwine that with the Dan Issel, Cracker Barrel, and Toyota stories.
I own and run a security firm in Virginia with three other guys. We've recently been trying to expand and were about to sign a deal with a rather large company in Richmond, this would have been huge for a firm of our size and I was already celebrating and looking for overly expensive Christmas gifts for my wife. Well it fell through, apparently the guys who were about to ink the deal with us got the message from higher ups in the company that they ought to sign with a minority firm. I can't give any details because nothing's final yet; but all signs point to the fact that we're going to lose out because we're 4 white guys competing with a firm run by Hispanics. I repeat, we're going to lose a lot of money- because we're white.
Dan Issel is the coach of the Denver Nuggets. In an altercation with a fan he called him a friggin Mexican (only he didn't say friggin). They had a guy from some Hispanic group on the O'Reilly Factor tonight. Not only does his group want Issel fired, but they want the Nuggets orginization to hire more Hispanics and do more work with Hispanic media. Now we're in a recession right now, companies aren't exactly hiring people right now. If the Nuggets cave and start to hire Hispanics, who do you think is going to be first in line to get fired?; you got it, white folk, they're going to be fired to make room for Hispanics, all so the Nuggets can say look at how diverse we are, please don't sue us.
Toyota just gave Jesse Jackson 700 million dollars so that he will not brand their corporation racist.
The Cracker Barrel is currently being sued for 100 million dollars for claims that they are racist to black customers. No proof, just the world of black customers against the word of Cracker Barrel management. I'd guess that the odds are very favorable that the black customers will win this lawsuit.
Does that pose a problem for you?
Not necessarily. I present to you the very item which got a Houston Denny's out of this same predicament - a surveillance camera. They have them all over the restaurant, and when they went back over their material, voila! There were the customers on the day in question, being served without delay and in a most expedient manner. Needless to say, the court case was ruled in favor of the defendent, and the plaintiffs had to pay court costs.
I'd suggest that Cracker Barrel peruse their tapes, and see what THEY can dig up. However, if they do find discriminatory behavior, then all bets are off...
My G-d! You're saying that there's reverse discrimation?
Contact the ACLU, Je$$e Jack$on, Al $harpton, et al. immediately, if not sooner!!!
I'm positive that they'll be interested in helping you... :-]
Her answer- Document, Document, Document.
It was good advice then, and it is now.
Make that white guys. The white females seem to get along just fine with the black guys. Racist? I see it more and more where I live.
as long it's done always bearing in mind that other favorite cautionary truism lawyers are rightfully fond of invoking -- when you open your mouth or write something down, you are creating evidence
Would 750,000 shut him the hell up?
Look at Estevan's website...It mentions in his bio that he is a "full court" basketball player. Add to this the fact that he also wants Hispanics in the Nugget organization, and I can safely deduct that he sees this as a prime opportunity (as a basketball fan) to get a part-time (but high paying) job as the Denver Nuggets' "Diversity Director."
Every time a stupid white guy opens his his mouth:
1.) Someone is always there to tape it, and:
2.)every other white guy pays for it!
