Recently at our office two black employees (female) got into a fistfight and one of them pulled a knife on the other. IN the building. A couple of large male employees were able to pull them apart without injury, and our security guard arrived and escorted them to Human Resources where they were both summarily fired. A black female manager in the department who witnessed the altercation filed a discrimination complaint (EEOC) against the COMPANY for firing these two thugettes. Her claim? That WE (the white management team and HR) should realize that violence is considered an acceptable form of conflict resolution in the black community.

not really unbelievable - pretty much par for the course. Back in the 1980s I got a computer operator job working the mid-night shift. I was cautioned, more than once, that sleeping on the job was grounds for immediate firing. Found out later that the black man who had had the job before me was caught sleeping and fired - got his job back with back pay for discrimination. 2nd time they found him sleeping they simply moved him to the day shift and hired me - I guess I should have thanked him as it gave me a job. He eventually quit, claimed a hostile work environment.

How terribly sad! Even sadder is that your company will likely be "judged" guilty and have to hire them back and pay fines.

Believe it! The "Black Facilitator" cited by Dr. Williams said it: ""That's what black culture is."
Obviously, there are Black people who have rational thoughs (Dr. Williams and Dr. Sowell, for example), but they have essentially disavowed the "Black Culture" as being flawed. Many more should do so.
If I were a Klansman, wanting to sabotage black education, I couldn't find better allies than education establishment liberals and officials in the Obama administration, especially Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who in March 2010 announced that his department was "going to reinvigorate civil rights enforcement."

For Duncan, the civil rights issue was that black elementary and high school students are disciplined at a higher rate than whites. His evidence for discrimination is that blacks are three and a half times more likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers. Duncan and his Obama administration supporters conveniently...
