Still not dead

Racism, that is.

  • Bring it! Bring it on!

    It's our national exorcism.

    No other country on the planet has the nerve to go through this kind of a process. Think "France".

  • When I first saw this, I expected it to be about our own Cora Cole-McFadden:

    City officials said Wednesday they remain committed to a diverse work force in the wake of an arbitrator's ruling last month that the company hired to operate Durham's bus system unlawfully fired a white general manager in 2005 because of his race.

    MV Transportation was ordered to pay Thomas Hartley $172,844 for replacing him with a black woman of "questionable qualifications," according to Jonathan Harkavy, a Greensboro attorney brought in by a judge to arbitrate the case with the consent of both MV and Hartley.

    Federal law states that race shouldn't be considered when making any employment decisions, but the city will give preferences to minorities and women if their qualifications are equal to those of nonminority applicants, Human Resources Director Alethea Bell said.

    One legal expert called that "laudable" but said the policy could expose the city to lawsuits.

    Harkavy cited comments by Mayor Pro Tempore Cora Cole-McFadden as one reason Hartley was fired.

    Cole-McFadden said that MV "needed some diversity in [its] management ranks" and that "we are proud of diversity in Durham, and we just can't have that [an all white management team]," according to Harkavy's ruling.

  • Yes, of course racism is alive and well. Anyone in Durham who's been paying attention, at least since March or April 2006, knows that the white man is under siege--there's no end to the injustice and discrimination.

    Better start working on the bunker in Montana if you know what's good for you.

  • Now that sales of the Hilary nutcracker have fallen off, the novelty vendors had to find something new to hawk.

  • Of course, once you're living in that bunker, you can kill your own kids with impunity.
