Sounds to me that the WHITE MAN is trying to use the BLACK MAN as a crutch to get PAID!

Why am I NOT surprised! They've been using us for years!

His only defense and reason as to WHY he was fired was because he allowed the male AA to operate the cash register!
He clearly stated that management DID NOT want any blacks to opereate in customer view per request of the owner and customers. He also argued that he PREFERRED the black man to work up front because he had a good attitude and didn't mind doing anything when asked. He thought it was unfair to treat the black guy as such and continued to put him on the cash register.

HE NEVER COMPLAINED OR ACKNOWLEDGED THAT HIS SICK LEAVE AND OTHER PERSONAL AILMENTS CAUSED HIM TO LOSE HIS JOB!

HE CONTINUED TO DRAW UP A STORY ABOUT HOW HE WAS FIRED BECAUSE HE WOULD NOT PUT THE BLACK GUY IN THE BACK OUT OF CUSTOMERS VIEW!

NEED I GO ON??????????

He's using this black man as a means to claim racial discrimination. Without any mention of this BLACK CASHIER, his story would crumble and be null and void.

Your racist brain is all f-kd up!

So you are saying that the white man new he would get fired if he put the black kid at the register, so when he got fired for doing it he could blame his firing on the black kid and he could sue management? That is some twisted mental racist asz thinking.
Hope you get back on your meds.

Seems like to a non racist normal person such as myself that the white man was trying to give the black kid an even break and was fired for doing so.

He was meant to let women work the counter.

He screwed up other things and knew he could get nation wide publicity.

WOW is all I can say! I haven't worked for PB in like 5 yrs but I worked for them for 5 . When my store opened there was only 2 non-black or ethnic employees INCLUDING mgrs . This just proves that racism is still strong no matter how you view it its rasism!
Whether the mgr wanted to get a case to get money by using the blk kid,
Giving the blk kid a chance,
Or the company didn't allow the blk kid in the front
WOW
