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 petunia
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.

Such a non-story you're starting a thread on it. Although to be fair, it's more of a non-thread.

awww, don't be like that. I'm not extrapolating anything into my life, this wouldn't happen in Dublin 4 , I trust the good people of The Butler's Pantry to offer bang up tasty pastries when they are open

I hope the 2 ladies sue the ass off them for so much that the owners go bankrupt. I wonder if either of the owners is running for president? After all, that seems to be the real motivation for the CEO of Starbucks having closed all the stores for re-education of staff on black people, he announced earlier this week that he'll be running in the next presidential election, doesn't hurt to have the black vote.

And clearly based on what is presented to us in the article they shouldn't have been fired. The story cannot be separated from the broader context of race and US society of course but that's probably a little to complex for you to be dealing with. Secondly I look forward to your comments the next time a US cop beats up or kills an innocent African American.

Do you actually think I even read the link. Firstly it's you! Then it's your OP and that was enough. We know straight away where this is going and bang on all the loopers climb aboard.

In the statement "Back To Eden" says the employees were fired because the woman and the "clamoring public" demanded they be fired.

In one statement, the bakery admitted that the employees did not necessarily do anything wrong, "this is more about how a black woman was made to feel" at the business.
There you have it. They were fired because the "clamoring public" (the mob) demanded it. To answer a question posted. The laws against wrongful dismissal are much weaker in the US than Europe. You can be fired basically on any whim (like this one).
