I have to wonder why the word racism is in quotes in that headline.

Who else is tired of hearing about how some crime or other "doesn't reflect who I am?"

Oh yes this crime does reflect who this woman is. She was born filthy rich and always had the attitude instilled in her that her money could get her anything she wanted.

That's exactly who she is.

Besides that, her children will be so rich that it doesn't matter which college they go to, or even whether they go. As someone has said, all these rich people engaged in bribery so they'd have have something more to brag about.

It is worth pointing out that it isn't that girls wrestling isn't recognized by the state High School Athletic Association because they don't think girls should wrestle. It isn't recognized because the sport hasn't hit the threshold of participants statewide to receive official recognition. It sounds like it is the same way they would handle recognition of a new sport for EITHER gender.

I don't see this as all that much of an outrage, frankly. The school has made it clear that they DO want to recognize her, but that the banners they hang in the gym are all part of the official state High School Athletics Association program.

I imagine this title came with a trophy or medal or plaque or something? I'm betting that the school has a trophy case. I'll save my outrage for when they refuse to display the reward for this accomplishment in that location.

White Olive Garden customer loudly complains and demands nonblack server, and manager immediately complies

I normally keep my browsing of this board to when-I'm-awake hours, but this shit is so awful I'm making an exception this morning.

I obviously haven't had to deal with anything THIS egregious, but I can say from personal experience that it is extremely demoralizing to have a manager side with a customer against an employee when the customer is clearly in the wrong. I can only imagine how much worse it is when they do so in a situation like this. I sincerely hope that Olive Garden let this manager go because what they did was wrong, and not just because it led to bad PR.

Manager was fired for violating their anti-discrimination policy, yeah. The viral aspect just makes this a hundred times worse than it already is and will only serve to reinforce to everyone else at all locations that such actions cannot and will not go either unnoticed or unpunished.

Grocery store throws out $35,000 worth of food woman coughed on as "twisted prank"


I would not terribly mind spending a day or two in jail for punching this woman in the face.
