    Portland bakery refuses to serve African American woman, who'd have thunk that pastries would be the front line....

    one of the latest non stories out of the US, in this case a bakery has fired 2 women working there for not serving a black lady. hold the outrage, the twist is, it was 6min past their closing time and were only finishing up orders by white people who were in the shop before 9. so the staff were only following their own protocols but the owners 2 gay men apparently threw them under the bus. on top local black activists seem to be trying to organise some boycotts because racism. its getting difficult to separate parody from reality these days
    i think the staff should sue for wrongful dismissal but they are probably so progressive themselves that they wont. lol


    Portland bakery fires employees for denying black woman service after closing | KATU


    PORTLAND, Ore. — Two employees of a bakery in Northeast Portland were fired earlier this month for denying a black woman service because the business had closed.

    "Back To Eden Bakery" released several public apologies and statements following the incident, before letting the employees go. In one Facebook post, the bakery's co-owner wrote, "We are doing business in a gentrified neighborhood in a racist city within a racist state of a racist country.”

    In one statement, "Back To Eden Bakery" says that according to its own surveillance video, a black woman named "Lillian", who is well known in the area as a "professional equity activist", entered at 9:06 p.m., after the bakery's closing time. Employees had also turned off the "Open" sign, but several customers (all white) who had already ordered were still inside. Two other white women who went to the bakery two minutes before "Lillian", and were also informed that the business was closed for the night.

    Fúcking madness. There is an article in Quillette that goes even deeper and uncovers the particularly seedy parts of this story.

    While the poor shop assistants were summarily fired, the woman (professional activist), who caused this by making these scurrilous allegations, then went on to tell the company owners they needed to employ her as an "equity consultant". Apparently, her demands were too great even for those moronic Libtard owners, who went with another "equity consultant" who turns out to be a professional rent seeker, who arranges "reparation parties" where African Americans go and party free on "reparations" paid by white Americans (who aren't allowed to attend of course. He takes a cut presumably.


    It is disgusting.

    If it's a 'non story' why are you giving it further oxygen?

    Because two perfectly innocent shop assistants were fired. That makes it an outrage and the people behind crap like this (look in the mirror díckhead) need to be opposed.


    Your are a crass individual.

    Is there such a thing as wrongful dismissal in America. My husband signed contracts for hiring Americans and there was a clause in them that they could be fired at will.

    On the racism issue, totally agree with you, America, Land of the Free, has zero racism. This is clearly black people getting too uppity.

    By the way, you're just a tad, only a tad mind, obsessed with finding the most crazy obscure American nonsense and extraopolating that nonsense into your own real life. But that isn't the worse bit. Nope, it's that you actually believe the crap you post.
