I would like not to think so.....I work with an individual who today cut me off intentially nearly causing an accident......he has been doing this a lot lately and driving in a wreckless manner more and more......well I got in his face this time about and in a few of my not so well educated words let him know that safety is pretty important when it comes to a 40 ton truck.......he jumped down out of his truck and said I am going to fuck you up and rip you a new asshole while calling me a bitch and a mother fucker.......well this individual is black and went straight to corporate and said I reapeatedly called him a nigger.......which is a word that I would never include in my a lot to be desired vocabulary as it is degrading to any human being. Well I got a call to go directly to the office and was put on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.......he was allowed to continue to work.......everything he said I said was only hearsay and was an out and out lie.......well some peeps came forward on my behalf, including another black who said I don't have a racist bone in my body. It made me feel wonderful having all these peeps coming to my defense and now this individual is suspended pending further investigation.......it restored a little more faith in me for the company as I felt I was definitely being railroaded. For anyone to use racist slurs is not on the same page as me,as it puts the human race back instead of forward,this is one reason I am so against religion as it puts the human race in the past not moving forward. Coincidentaly this individual is astaunch theist but for him to be anything Christ like is never going to happened. This man is not what he accuses me of he is just another fucking ass wipe that is trying to climb a ladder at the company that doesn't even exist! If one is a homophobe,racist,religious nut case chances are real real good that we will never be friends. Anyway just had to get that out there. Have a wonderful evening all and peace be with each and everyone!

Crystal,

I am so sorry for your loss.  He will be missed.

Hi all,

I am trying my best to notify friends of my dad, Kent Thompson, that he has passed away. If you knew him personally and knew any of his friends, I would appreciate it so much if you could pass the news along to those who may care to know. It has been a tough day hearing this news. I have enjoyed reading some of his blogs and can agree wholeheartedly with this one that my dad would never say such a thing to any human. He was one of the kindest humanists I have ever known and had such a heart for people, especially the marginalized. He will be sorely missed.

If you would like any more info, feel free to contact me. 

Crystal

Race baiters don't have the social chops to coexist. They scapegoat others to gain social entitlement in a group. This is not a job skill but a form of misrepresentation for personal gain. Treason must be confronted or it grows into tyrrany.

I like Dougibert Bert's answer on this. That may be what's going on with you.

Racist? I might add that my wife and I have fought, cussed, slapped, swong fists, blacked eyes, etc. and never once has she ever heard me use the "N" word. It's not appropriate. The thing with me is that I'm not going to just stand there and get the shit kicked out of me! This is educational. These days it doersn't happen, but it used to.

Thanks Kakumei

Isn't it a pretty established Christian concept that lying in the service of God or for a "higher" good can be acceptable and even necessary? Obviously this can be true outside of a religious context as well. But the religious seem to have latched on to it as a way of getting around that false witness thing which can be so inconvenient and obstructive in so many situations.

Kent, I cringe when I hear of people playing the race card not because it's warranted but because it's available and it serves their purpose. There's enough real racism out there and I think it tends to be minimized in people's minds every time they see an example of the fake stuff. Your coworker needs to figure out that hiding behind people's real suffering struggle to avoid facing up to his own personal screwups and bad behavior is s shitty way to go through life.

Thanks sentiment.........I immediately lose respect for anyone who pulls the race card when it is not warranted........if a man is a racist then I say yes.........to be judging anyone based on skin color is precisely what the government wants from us.......it is a tool,like religion,and homophobic attitude that is used to keep the people distracted and divided......

Comment by Sentient Biped on February 15, 2014 at 9:54am

Kent this sounds like a situation where tempers flared and it led to some bad behavior.  The unsafe behavior at the beginning suggests some really bad priorities.  I hope it works out OK.  I don't what to say otherwise.

I wouldn't call that racism.....
