I dont hear you telling all the gays to buy cases of preperation H or the blacks for that matter, but both of these groups are very vocal in pointing out paranoid perceived injustices. Why is that?
Sterling abused his power? How so? being bigoted is not an abuse of power, if it was then trailer parks would be the most powerful places on earth and tornado's would shy away from them.
And the lady on the plane did not make a "Heated comment", she made a racial threat. But I find it terrible that you cannot even admit that it was. Instead you try to minimize her words to such a degree that she merely "snapped back" at the attendant. Why cant you admit it was a racist thing to say? How can you defend that it was not?
Slander is spoken, libel is written. And the subtance of my comments was nowhere near libelous.
...one person's paranoid, supposition...
Feel picked on much?
Wow, someone is on his period. I never said you were not "allowed" to do anything. You also should work on your reading comprehension. I never said your hypothetical was wrong, I just said it was worthless. Read my post again. I acknowledged there are inconsistencies in life. That's the way it is. If you're going to get butthurt every time you perceive two somewhat similar situations were treated differently by society, you'd better stock up on Preparation H. Debating a hypothetical like this is worthless because no one can be proven right. There is no correct answer. If you want to debate Sterling versus the lady in question, go ahead, At least you're dealing with two situations that actually happened, and opinions are based on real scenarios instead of one person's paranoid, supposition of what might could have potentially maybe happened if things were different than they were. Sterling was a rich white guy in a position of power who abused that power and made statements that compromised the value of his product and created a hostile environment for his employees and others. The lady on the plane was a nutjob who made a heated comment upon which she did not act. She was arrested, we do not know what for. People can argue about which is worse all day long, but at least they'll be arguing about two things that actually happened.
Oh, and check the definition of slander. I didn't even come close. Slander is spoken, libel is written. And the subtance of my comments was nowhere near libelous. Feel picked on much?
