    In my hometown, a professor went to Barnes and Noble. He said there was a discount on what he was buying. In reality there was, but he got a trainee who did not know who refused to give him the sale. So know the professore is sueing Barnes and Noble claiming discrimination(he is African American). I think this is ridicules. Everything is not over race. It was obviously just a trainee's mistake.

    well,

    i'll tell you a story my friend...

    [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] in a small, i mean... very small country town, a farmer's son was sent to study law in a big city...

    everyone had high hopes on him... but when he got back he just couldn't make any money...

    so, another farmer sent his son to the same law school couple of years later... when he got back...

    BOTH OF THE MOFO FARMER'S SONS LAWYERS BEGAN TO MAKE A SHIT LOAD OF MONEY!!! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    lawyers... they just can't get enough... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    When I was a junior in high school, taking German 3, there was ONE black kid in the class. He had been in my German 1 and 2 classes as well.

    Anyway, one day, out of the blue, he asks me if I knew what was meant by 'cali' in 'going back to cali' or whatever it was. I simply said "no...why?"

    He responded, "you don't care because it's a BLACK thing! You don't like me because I'm BLACK!"

    My answer: "No, I don't like you because you're an asshole. Your being black just gives YOU an excuse to be unliked by me."

    It shut him up for the remainder of the year. It's amazing how easy it is to play the race card when you think you're being discriminated against, but when someone throws it right back at ya, you've lost your fire.

    If the guy from your story wins his case, then we're in some SAD shape. Christ, common sense should dictate that some kid working in a bookstore doesn't care WHO he sells a book to-he just wants to keep his job. And hell, even if he WAS guilty of discrimination, it's a far cry from burning a cross or lynching someone.

    Discrimination, my ass. If we can now blame the inexperience of a bookstore clerk (a rowdy group to start with) on discrimination, what's next?
    Don't bark at me...<b>I</b> didn't name ya.

    Ain't nobody suing nobody on this board. (Unless, of course, there is something in it for me!) [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Btw, I don't think that lawsuit will get very far...you'll never hear about it getting dismissed, though.
