Admittedly, I haven't paid much attention to many of rjrumfel's posts. Is he usually this much of a shithead?

Mr. Cooper seems relatively successful, and like he has resources available to him. Imagine if the victim was just a poor black guy without a lawyer or funds for bail. He would likely be sent to Rikers (currently going through an awful COVID-19 outbreak), have to wait weeks or months for a trial, and risk death from some virus he picked up in jail.

That's if he wasn't killed or seriously injured by cops, which could easily have happened.

I think that part is inaccurate anyway, they have an office there. But it's almost irrelevant, imagine worrying about who is lifting weights next to you.

So my comment is more to a bigger picture of people getting fired for shitty behavior that has nothing to do with their jobs. Thanks to social media, this sort of thing seems to be happening quite a bit. Does the bad behavior impact your work specifically? It's like being fired for being an alcoholic even though you have a stellar work record.

Does that make sense?

I'm not trying to excuse this lady's behavior at all. EMCE, she should be charged with whatever they can throw at her for making false claims (I don't even know if you can be charged).

I think that's a bad example because I'm pretty sure you can NOT be fired for being an alcoholic

Christian Cooper is a hero. That woman didn't stand a chance against his demeanor and use of SAT words.

You can definitely be fired for having poor character and being dishonest. This is why personal references exist.

Personally, I'm pretty happy that people are being fired for being racist. Comparing it to alcoholism is uhh...not great.

I certainly would welcome thousands of videos of racists being racists and having their racism be outed

Wait until rjrumfel learns about morality clauses and at-will employment.

If I’ve learned anything it’s that this is a riot, not protest. Also these are paid protestors rioters. And they don’t have jobs because any reasonable adult human doesn’t have time to protest riot because they have jobs and responsibilities. And they should just comply with the orders of the cops and security, if they don’t they should definitely be tear gassed and arrested and even probably should be tear gassed even if they do comply and are peaceful.

^ Holy shit, what an incredibly entitled and narcissistic brat. She def ain't "super sweet", and her apology is NOT "sincere" at all

She's Puerto Rican.
Which doesn't fucking matter.
But contextually, aside from whatever ethnicity she identifies as, I gauranfuckingtee you, she has lived her life as passibly white....and has never used the blurred lines between ethnicity and nationality other than when it benefited her.



Garbage.

Total garbage person, I agree.

So basically, she's co-opted our white privilege when it's convenient to her. That's cultural appropriation!
