N.C. Department Deemed Racially Hostile

"RALEIGH, N.C. - North Carolina's transportation department allowed a racially hostile workplace but won't have to pay damages to black workers who sued after a white co-worker hung a noose in a maintenance shop, a federal jury decided Wednesday.

Seven black workers alleged in the civil rights suit that white supervisors did nothing about the situation even after learning of the noose. They said the rope remained on display for 35 days in 2002 beginning Feb. 1, the start of Black History Month." read more...

I can't believe this kind of crap still happens in the year 2005. Of course, it has been the century of turning back the clock under the Bush administration as we selectively eliminate civil rights, reduce science to story telling, and once again embrace xenophobia.

Yeah Republicans!!!!

  2. Blaming this despicable act and the rest (of your ridiculous rant) on Republicans and George Bush is like blaming Bill Clinton for weakening our military and intelligence leading up to 9-11.....oh yeah, that DID happen!

    You are far too angry and ill-informed - you need a time out.

  4. I found this, one of your quotes, from an earlier posting in this blog. I thought it would be interesting to post these comments under your outcry about "Red staters."

    "Those poor fuckers in North Korea, Cuba, and Al Queda would wrap themselves in the red, white, and blue if they could only experience the wonders of extreme gluttony of an all-you-can-eat buffet."

    By the way, love the girly site...apparently you haven't become completely wussified just yet by your little lefty buddies (who won't go to Vegas with you anymore...;-)

  6. Oh, no, Timmer doesn't fit the bill at all (note dripping sarcasm).
