Look at everyone getting so emotional over this article. No proof or evidence just a biased story about a black woman and white supervisor. Well that MUST mean he is guilty of something doesnt it? I mean he is white and in charge after all right? There is no way she could be a litigious black woman who's looking for a big payday right? She didnt get fired becuase she was lazy and rude she was a "victim" of "prejudice". Wake up people! There is more to this story than you can see from your PC.

Liberalism is a mental disorder. Why won't any in the "afro-American" community (this is what you were calling YOURSELVES just a few decades ago, NOW it's offensive, WTF???) look in the mirror and ask themselves, why is it there is still such a high level of disrespect among yourselves not only to each other but everyone in general. There are irrefutable historic references to other races that at one time did not get dealt a good hand, such as Japanese-Americans who were wronged and lost everything when they were sent to internment camps during WWII. While this is also seen as a dark period in our nation's history the Japanese did not allow this period to DEFINE THEMSELVES AS A RACE!!!!!, in other words they moved on and are now widely integrated and welcomed here, mainly because they did not feel a need to think collectively(yes, alsharpton and jessejackson DO speak for all of you because you do not shut them up PUBLICLY) they did not hide their own prejudice behind the NAAJP or other gimme scam groups.

Why do blacks get to change what they want to be called all the time? In the early 1900's, they went by negros. In the 80's and 80's, it was Afro-American. Now that offends them. Now you must say African American.

As long as they can keep getting offended, they can remain angry at somebody and gain attention.

Believe it "Right" they will stand out in front for all to see, you ever been to North Georgia....there are still towns up there that a black man doesn't go through when the sun goes down. That comment the poster made is not so far fetched, even in a city as diverse as Atlanta you can see a KKK march in the middle of the day, and it is acceptable.

This is funny. I just went to the top of this page and clicked on "all topics". The first block was "black entertainment". Not just entertainment but black entertainment. How many people are disturbed about other peoples entertainment be excluded? Why are others races being discriminated against being entertained? I doubt there is a white entertainment section.

You know when I came here in the late 70's, I am embarrassed to say that I watched a White Police officer beat a Black Homeless Man Silly, For not moving when he was told. I grew up watching the 60's and I was afraid of coming to the south based on what I seen on TV, Though I have encountered Racism everywhere in these United States, I am not suprised of this Story!!! The Mentality of these Racist are still amongst us and will be here to the Earths End. Violence, Law enforcement cannot stop there brethern. It just shows why Black People have a legitamate right to question Sincerety of White People.

Yea because all the shootings and robberies happen in predominately black areas of town. Its a shame but its true that most hate crimes are black on black. And no im not a racist, im a realist.
What does neighborhood crime have to do with someone trying to simply do their job. Are you saying she has committed a crime? Or should we assume she has committed a crime? This is prejudice because you are prejudging her and others based on their ethnicity. I guess I don't follow why you posted this comment.

This is despicable behavior. As a white young man, I find it disgusting that this would be going on in 2007. It perpetuate the idea that rascism is prominent in the white community, and it also gives fodder to the race baiters, such as Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, to make more money and scam gullible people. It is time to move on and stop treating people any which way because of their race or color. A person should be judged by the content of their character not the color of their skin. The color of a person's skin is no more significant than the color of their eyes.

i'm interested to see how this turns out.

but don't take her claims too much to heart. i've lived here in the atlanta area for about 10 years and people here dont need much of a reason/excuse play the race card. but of course whenever you prove them wrong then it's all "the man's" fault.

why is it that the smaller the mind the bigger the conspiracy?

I often run into such signs and I'm a 'honky'. Often I'm on the road I'll stop at an Abu's Quickie Mart, and there will be the 'out of order' sign.

I go to the clerk and say that "I've received complaints that your washroom has been out of order for some time. I'm from the state (I'm from the state of Wisconsin) and if it's really out of order you 'could' be cited. There are sanitation laws, and fines. If your washroom IS out of order, a fine could result. Where do you go? I've got to 'GO' OK?"

Nine out of ten times the clerk simply doesn't want to clean up after the public, and it works just fine. I used to have a Clark station in Milwaukee, and was located next to a bar. I didn't allow drunks use of the washroom.

Here we go again. Another " Racial" claim. If the toilet works, use it. Sounds like somebody wanting a free hand out here.
