Hatred in the Workplace: A Cavalcade of Craven 0

Over at Above the Law, Richard B. Cohen corrals a flock of work-place discrimination and harassment cases. It’s worse than I could have imagined.

Here’s a bit; follow the link for the herd.

One Washington State company sued by the EEOC agreed to pay $165,000 to settle a case in which it was alleged that the manager and assistant managers subjected the only black employee to slurs such as “spook,” “boy,” and “King Kong,” and told him that he had the “face of a janitor.”

And there were death threats. Death threats! In the workplace!

An assistant manager allegedly told him, “We will hang you. We will seriously lynch you if you call in again this week.” And another asked him if he was “ready to commit suicide,” and even offered him “assistance” if he wanted to do it.

Yes — he was fired.

Whistlin’ for Dixie 0

Elie Mystal suggests that the silencer is off the Federalist Society’s dog whistles. A snippet:

There is no dog whistle left for FedSoc. They can’t hide their attacks on minorities and women under the guise of “federalism” and “states’ rights,” as John C. Calhoun once did. The Federalist Society works for the advancement of white male supremacy through the limitation of Constitutional principles designed to protect the rights of non-white men, and women. Their efforts have directly resulted in the voter suppression of non-whites, the proliferation of guns and the human destruction they cause, the environmental damage of deregulation (and the human destruction the environment causes when there’s a hurricane or a forest fire), and the racist immigration policies of the current administration.

(Broken link fixed.)

It’s a long, complex, and depressing tale and, unfortunately, required reading for our times.
