Woman Hilariously Shuts Down White Co-Worker Who Refuses To Call Her By Her “Hood Black Girl Name”

Twitter/@BlackMajiik

Twitter is becoming the best place for story time and if you need to hear a good one on your lunch break, please get into this tale of a black woman who shut down her new white male supervisor in the most hilarious way possible after he refused to call her by her name. Actually “Mayonaise Monster,” as the woman whose name is LaTora referred to him, didn’t even attempt to address his employee by her government name, saying when it comes to those “hood black girl names” he won’t even try because they “all sound the same anyway.”

Yes, he really said that.

The story is so much better when LaTora tells it. Check out her rundown of the chain of events.

Moral of the story part 2: Get like LaTora.

    I am here for this. Very few things are worse than the combination of rudeness and racism. What an obnoxious prick to have the gall to speak to anyone that way. She handled this in a way so clever I could only hope to handle an incident of racism and rudeness as well.

        pretty sure what he did is harassment. saying anything wouldve just put a target on her back (instead of his bc lol racism isnt even close to being dead) n she’d just be seen by most if not all of the white people as a “troublemaker” n theyd eventually find some bullshit way to let her go

            Also, don’t disbelieve everything you refuse to face is an actual “thing”, simply because its never happened to you or you have been mistakenly told that ” rules” or “policies” protect people from ignorance such as this. The simple fact that you assumed he would have been ” immediately fired” proves you seriously don’t have a clue. What if she went to HR with this, and ran into someone like YOU, who refused to even believed it happened? What if all the experiences you can read…just on the comment section alone, by similarly-named individuals who stated the same thing happens to them….are true?

                Yes, when all else fails, when you refuse to see things from another perspective, call people ” biased” and shut the conversation down.

                Nice. Its easy to just bow out of a discussion when the subject doesn’t affect you or YOUR life in any way, isn’t it? Easier to just tell people they are making up what they go through then run when challenged, right? Its okay though… We are used to it . Bye bye.

      I have been reading a lot of reporting on her death in other sites, specifically sites targeting HBCU alumni. Maybe because she graduated Howard and taught there.

      Good point, True. Unfortunately, I had never heard of her until poster Truthseeker mentioned her passing on another unrelated article. Upon reading her name, I quickly googled her and was intoduced to a WEALTH of information. This platform would be awesome to introduce other folks to a brilliant woman. I am sure I am not the only one who has never heard of her. I’m saddened that some how her existence and her work slipped past me.

            That’s so Sweet of you Sister. I heard of her for many years. I was very shocked and sadden that she passed away. Her recent interviews were prophetic as they talked about Tamir Rice, Trump, Washington D.C., and other important issues involving our black community. One of their greatest lessons is that she wanted black people to treat each other right, to stand up for black liberation, and to pledge allegiance to the interests of our people.

              No, that honestly would have solved nothing. I think i figured out why this makes you white people so nervous. it’s the fact that she handled this situation on her own, didn’t crack under pressure and didn’t get herself fired.

              She didn’t run and cry to the authorities, she didn’t let him get under her skin and that pisses some of you WHITE MALES off so bad. He thought he had power over her, little did he know that she was the one who had power over him.

              All i have to say is, everyone in that place is an adult, she wouldn’t have to stoop to his level in the first place had he not tried to be an asshole. Instead of being polite and introducing himself like a gentleman, (like I’m sure he did for all the white females) he chose to fuck up his 1 chance of a first impression. But you know what? I’m not surprised or shocked because he’s white and i fully expect this from your kind. This sort of thing happens everywhere to minorities.

              In a way, I’m glad i don’t work. So i don’t have to put up with this sort of BS.

                As another on this thread posted: “The only way we’ll win this war against racism is with, you know, more racism.

                And I am not the least bit nervous about any of it. I am a progressive gay white male who thinks racism is pathetic — whether it comes from a white male asshole OR from an immature black girl lacking the skills to behave properly in polite society or the workplace.

Minorities can’t be racist. Not in the way that you think anyways. We only give what you people serve, “Sally”. 🙂

                  So, just because i was making myself clear on who i was speaking about, doesn’t make me a racist. All white males and white people in general are racist to an extent. (yea you’re gonna get all pissy after that sentence, but i don’t give a damn.) Some are just worse than others. This simple tweet of a woman having problems at work seem to bring the trolls pretending like they cant understand why she retaliated and act like they wouldn’t have done the same.

                  White people have taken the cake with racism throughout the centuries and have caused so much pain and suffering for minorities. And i know for a fact, that when the lord comes back, he’ll be tossing 98% of you, in the lake of fire. I don’t know, but white people are just plain evil. (yea, i know there’s a small percent who aren’t.) I’m sorry, but i feel like your kind really are demon seeds.

                  There is no other race guilty of such racial crimes, like the pilgrims turning on/ slaughtering Native Americans with their weapons and nasty germs. enslaving black people and lynching, pointless killing, burning crosses, the KKK, stealing and raping/ pillaging whats left of certain countries. Mocking Asians/Black people in the 1930’s- 60’s through television shows and films.

                  The only reason you people stopped pissing all over Asians is because there’s billions of them, and they have their own armies and nuclear weapons. Had it been black people though, racism against them would be nonexistent as well.

                  I don’t know, i just feel like white people are cowards. And my opinion of them won’t change anytime soon.

                  There are a few white people brave enough to state the obvious, how Whites are afraid of minorities, they’re afraid because of their evil ancestors past crimes and they’re afraid of how one day minorities will rise and turn on the rest of you. Also, it’s possible because one day the white race will become extinct. I remember that hilarious thing white people all over YouTube kept spouting a few years ago, what was it? “Diversity is a code word for anti white” lol. Not like that’s a bad thing, the world really would be a better place without white people.

                  Oh well, i guess I’ll end my rant here. Not much else to say.

They most likely were lied to and were told their people would be taken some place safe with plenty of food and blah blah blah. Elite White devils change up historical facts to suit their own agenda and refuse to mention lots of other facts in history having to do with blacks or any other minority. Now please, fuck off.

    For long years, white racists have shown their face. The handwriting is on the wall. When they (or these white bigots) are truly exposed for the deceiver that they are, then they want to either issue faux “apologies” or go out to use ridiculous deflections to cover up their obvious propaganda. LaTora used wit, humor, and great strength to refuse the evil words of the white co-worker. The white person knew what he was doing and his actions represents the tactics of racists. They will try to issue slick, bigoted statements and then cop pleas when they are justly exposed. Such stories exist all over the world. Employment discrimination and the harassment of black workers sill exist in our generation. That is why it is important for any black person, who is a worker, to stand their ground, to defend their principles, to defend their human dignity, and to keep on following the truth.

          Right. Someone shares a story about how her white colleague mocked her name & called her ghetto. This isn’t an isolated incident, black people experience this all the time. Many people commenting here who have ‘black’ names, including myself, have experienced this several times. But instead of empathizing & just listening you want to point out that not all white people do this. Who told you we don’t know that? & what gives you the right to come onto a page for black women & police our discussion about race issues?

            Lots of assumptions in your statements there. Who said I don’t empathize? I’m talking about the generalities that were made in this article. Why is it ok to discriminate against one group over another? I don’t think it’s ok, but apparently you do. I’m sorry you’ve faced indifference and bigotry, and I honestly do empathize, but that doesn’t mean that racial generalities are ok. There were a lot of derogatory remarks in this entire article, none of which should be condoned, no matter the race.

              Must be your own biased perception & sensibilities then cos I don’t see any “generalities” in the article. Smh. There are so many pages for the disabled that complain about how able-bodied people oppress the disabled & lots of pages for Trans persons that complain about cis folks.I would never go on those pages to tell them “not all able bodied people” or don’t generalize about cis folks.

              It is truly presumptious to police the language of a minority/ disadvantaged group when they talk about their opression. & the fact that you think you can school us, who face misogyny & racism daily on how “not all white people” discriminate is disturbing. Check your privilege that allows you to invade spaces meant for minority women to tell us how to talk about our issues

Just answer me this…Is this statement, taken from the article, not racist, “I chose a seat next to the only other black girl on my team. Little did I know, that on the other side of me sat the Mayonnaise Monster”? I mean come on. Why am I not welcome here? Do you disagree with my statements, or just disagree with the person saying the words?

                  You might want to read up on how racism is about power and as such black people can be prejudiced but not racist. There are many free articles on the Internet about that. So no, her statement wasnt racist. Which goes to show that I both disagree with your statements (which seeks to monitor the discussion of black women’s oppression which is in itself racist & sexist ) & you saying it (because when you are not a member of an oppressed group you don’t get to tell them how to talk about their oppression).

                  So you are welcome here to empathize & listen but you are not welcome here to gag black women from relating their lived experiences of misogynoir which you know nothing about.

                    I’m sorry, but just because the statement came from someone that belongs to an oppressed race, doesn’t give them the right to be racist. That’s not how any of this works. Also, you keep trying to label me, cut it out. I’ll admit that usage of the word prejudice would have been better. Well done, but there’s no need to be condescending. I’ve not treated you with such blatant and vitriolic disrespect, because I’m having a discussion, not an argument. You’re clearly bothered just by my presence here, that’s quite telling.

                      Big sigh! Racism 101: racism= prejudice + power. Her statement wasn’t racist, it was prejudiced. She made a prejudiced statement about her colleague who had made several demeaning racist & sexist statements to her but you want to derail the conversation by focusing on her statements. Have several seats. I’m also surprised that the word ‘condescending’ is in your dictionary seeing that you showed up here to tell grown women how to discuss racism.

                      It’s must also be lovely, that this serious issue that is a matter of life & death for me & others like me is a mere ‘discussion’ for you. Statistically, people with ‘black sounding’ names are discriminated against routinely including being rejected for jobs they’re qualified for. I could literally not find a job & like starve to death or something thanks to idiots like Evan or Todd or whatever his name was. In conclusion, no one cares about your presence here. You’re not a special snowflake. Diverse people comment here all the time- Men, women, black, non-black folks whatever. But expect to get called out in an epic manner if you come here & tell us how to discuss racism which we live with everyday. That’s all.

                      racism is prejudice plus power. so yeah black people can be prejudiced, sure, but not racist. n in this case she wasnt even being prejudiced. evan was a racist misogynistic piece of shit right off the bat- she made no assumptions. n whats your alternative? keeping quiet n allowing someone to treat her like that? (sounds eerily similar to the slave owner mentality.) so is the black woman at fault because she wasnt the “better man?” foh. maybe your feelings werent hurt but nothing in what you said seems like youre genuinely concerned about the way black people are treated so im having a hard time figuring out where youre coming from. no one said your opinion was off limits (again, soundin a little butt hurt) we are having a discussion. the way black people are portrayed in american culture is beyond messed up. so im sure a lot of white people are racist without realizing it. fine- but at a certain point it becomes our responsibility to take a seat and listen. maybe even do some googling about systemic racism. accept that the things you have been taught might be insanely problematic n ignorant af.

                        You assume I didn’t agree with the writer of the article in any way. You assume that want her to keep quiet. Then you make more assumptions based off of your assumptions. Indifference and prejudice cannot be fought with racism, prejudice, discrimination, xenophobia. My only gripe with the entire thing is that him being white is part of it…He’s just an asshole, wouldn’t matter what race, although I understand her feeling more defensive because he is white.

You are all in your feelings because black people dare to call this jack hole out for what him and many white people do when they commit microagressions. It happens quite frequently I have witnessed this myself in the workplace. I always am amazed when black people respond to a microagressions, white people respond by calling us racist. That is just bizarre to me. We point something out and just because we won’t just be docile and lay down and take your shit. We are no longer going along with the status quo. Black Lives Matter.

A hostile work environment is what she avoided by not allowing herself to be intimidated, running to HR for others to handle her interactions, and making it known she was not available to be abused by him.

                Wrong. Her behavior was no better than his. Professionals in the workplace do not show they aren’t intimidated by adopting the bad behavior of their antagonist. She furthered the hostile work environment with her behavior in response to his.

                Professional employees report the issue to their superiors or “run to HR” for assistance if it is an issue that cannot be ignored by “taking the high road”.

                Folks can try to spin it any way they like, but we all know that adults don’t respond to a bully’s slap with a punch in the face.

                    Why is this so complicated? I’m a gay man — if someone in my workplace called me ‘faggot’ I would not respond to them directly, I would immediately report it to management. Are you actually advocating that in response I should call the other person whatever name I thought might fit (e.g. fatass, nigger, jew…. whatever) ??

                    I certainly hope you would not teach your children this philosophy.

                      Well I’ve been in management for 15 years and a good manager will always try have their reports work it out between themselves first so they stay management and not mommy or daddy. How do we know he didn’t go to management and they advised him to apologize for instigating the whole thing in the first place? He wanted to be a jerk and it backfired on him. Sometimes that happens, even if you’re white. If he continued to state he was upset, HR or management probably would have dealt with it, but he probably realized he got his comeuppance.

                        You keep spinning. Would you ever advise an employee who was having trouble with a co-worker to “give it right back to him”?

                        Seriously?

                        [and if the offending employee expressed racism, and there was evidence, are you not obligated to immediately reprimand/terminate the offender?

                        You make it sound like if a guy in the office touched a woman’s chest at the xerox machine and she reported it to you, that you would send her back to tell him that wasn’t acceptable.

                            If you say so. The (young) woman in this article is boasting that she spent six months mocking a co-worker after he mocked her — how anyone can find that acceptable / admirable behavior simply escapes me.

                      James, the point is that if someone in your office called you that, you would be right to respond by going to HR and if this guy called LaTora a blatant slur, she should too! There is a gray area. If someone in your office continuously made references to Striesand, Musical Theater and other things they perceived as “gay”, you would probably not go because it’s hard to explain the violation, but it would indeed be a violation. It’s weird to go to H R and say “he didn’t want to pronounce my name correctly” or “he said he was surprised that I didn’t wear pink”. I think she handled it in a clever way. She could have went to HR, but if it is a good company, he could have lost his job immediately and I don’t think that she wanted that, she just wanted him to see how it felt.

                        There’s nothing clever about doing the same behavior toward him for six months. It’s as wrong as his behavior toward her.

                        I would have no problem going to HR and explaining to them that someone was issuing gay slurs in my direction – even if the slurs were subtle (and amusing?) comments about Liberace, MADONNA (our queen!), etc.

                        But thank you for seeing some reason in my comments – I truly am not trolling. I only ended up here because this came across my facebook feed – I did not go cruising a website which caters to black women just for kicks.

                          I don’t think you’re a troll. I just don’t agree with your opinions. I understand where they come from. You have every right to post on any blog that you like without feeling the need to justify it to people imo. I see that you take her post as an isolated incident between two people at work and if it was just that, then I “might” agree with you, BUT as a black person and a black person who works in HR, for me, the post is part of a larger issue. So, I’ll give you that if this was something weird and uncommon, I might think she carried it on for too long, but what you are not able to grasp is that for someone like me, this is a victory story of someone who actually got back at someone who is a part of the problem that lots of people endure everyday.

                          Have you seen the movie Office Space? Remember the guy who they kept moving from room to room until his office was a closet and all he wanted was his stapler, but he couldn’t even have that? At the end of the movie, he burned down the company. Now, clearly no reasonable person is a fan of or condones arson, but everyone cheered for that guy because he finally made a his quiet stand. You don’t understand because you don’t deal with it at work. You are lucky enough to not work at places where you see it, but for people (like me and most people who work in an all white environment in management) her story represents a small, funny victory . . . and I applaud her stand.

                          It’s fine for you not to get it and to disagree, but to double down on your point based in terms of individuality while ignoring race and the bigger picture shows why her response is being cheered by so many. Its irksome to see a person have such a strong opinion on something they just don’t get. Imo.

                            As an H.R. professional, do you really think it’s admirable that the woman responded to the man’s bad behavior by repeating his behavior back to him for six months?

                            If this matter came to your desk at your place of work how would you handle it? Would you tell her that her response was spot-on, or would you have to counsel/terminate her just as he deserved counseling/termination?

                            This is not a complicated topic, and there are not larger issues involved — either it is appropriate to mirror bad behavior or it is not.

                  1) She was not dealing with an adult.

                  2) I guess you missed this part:

                  ” I get it ok, I’m sorry. Just please stop”

                  3) Don’t concern yourself with how a Black person deals with ignorance and stupidity in their work environment just because you claim to be gay.

                    I do indeed know much about being a member of a minority group, but that has little bearing on this discussion anyway.

                    The point is you don’t respond to bad behavior with bad behavior. Sadly for you, this is a lesson most children learn – apparently you missed it.

                    You can drag it out any way you want, but that is the truth of the matter, and it’s the only point I endeavored to make.

Don’t be mad because this young woman handled it in a way you don’t understand. A LOT of Black people are tired of playing by the rules that often mysteriously change when they involve people who look like you.

                        See, you making it a color issue is one way that racism gets fueled. You don’t want to be treated differently but then complain because you are treated differently.

                        If you are white, and gay, in the workplace and someone gives you grief you handle it like an adult professional. You seem to be advocating some different set of rules if you’re black in the workplace.

                        Sad that you separate out black people from the one proper way to behave in our society. I sure don’t.

                        Oh, and I’ve learned lots of great life lessons from black people over the years – I hope you are able to learn from white people sometimes yourself.

                          So you have two employees standing in front of you, and the white guy calls the black girl a “dirty nigger”. She responds by calling him a racist douchebag motherfucking cracker.

                          Which, if any, do you fire – and why?

                            The young Black lady would not have had to respond at all, because the white guy would have been fired before the “er” spewed out of his mouth.

                              But what if the girl responded before you had a chance to terminate the guy? Is she in the clear because she was responding to his bad behavior?? Would you at least counsel her on use of language in the office?

                          BS. You still feel compelled to try and tell Black people how to respond to racism, I don’t care how gay you are. All the articles I have read about gay couples who wanted to force homophobic establishments to treat them as equals, I personally have never had a burning need to log in and tell these people how they should react to stupidity.

                          And it does not matter how queer you are, you still feel entitled to blame Black people for being “othered”-come back when unarmed, gay white males are being shot in the street on a weekly basis, and talk about how you are “separating yourselves from society”.

                          You are still a white person with a penis, so you can wear all the sequins and ruffles you want–just put on some flannel shirts and overalls and you still look like the group of people who are allowed to brandish firearms in a federal building this weekend and not get shot to death. That has to be a comfort to you while you wave a rainbow flag, but just know you are transparent around intelligent Black people.

                            I felt compelled to express my opinion on how this woman should have behaved in the workplace. There are not different rules for black people, gays, immgirants, etc. in the workplace. The rules are the same for everyone.

                            You can try to make this about anything larger you want, but the same kernel of truth persists:

                            IN THE WORKPLACE, if someone spits on you it is never the correct action to spit back on them.

                            Race, etc. is irrelevant to that simple truth.

Hell even the other caucasians were calling dude out of his name, which is hilarious! Stop crying about it and deal. Or continue to sulk, up to you.

                                No, actually, being the white college-educated professional that I am, the workplaces I enjoyed did not have very many ignorant homophobes in them..

                                You keep on digging that hole trying to validate responding to bad behavior with more bad behavior. If your ego wasn’t engaged, and you step back for a moment, you’d realize you are arguing a position which is immature and unprofessional.

                                Perhaps this young lady punches a clock in the kind of workplace where her responding behavior was “acceptable”, but if she ever hopes to achieve greater success it would do her – and you – well to acknowledge that adults don’t throw rocks.

Corporate America is no exception.

                                This article is about ONE Black person who dealt with this hostility in her own way, and it worked out for her. Deal and stfu.

                                And newsflash–she has already achieved greater success–if you read the article you would see she got a promotion due to her hard work despite her interactions with the mayo monster. I know your ilk fantasizes and masturbates at the thought of Black people either being immoral or saintly doormats who do not harbor ill will towards the savagery or plain stupidity of racist whites.

                  “First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says “I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can’t agree with your methods of direct action;” who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a “more convenient season.” -MLK

                    If your child was called names at school, would you instruct your child that the way to handle it is to go back to school and call the other child names too?

                        Preach Sister. These trolls omit this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King:

                        “The policymakers of the white society have caused the darkness; they create discrimination; they structured slums; and they perpetuate unemployment, ignorance and poverty. It is incontestable and deplorable that Negroes have committed crimes; but they are derivative crimes. They are born of the greater crimes of the white society. When we ask Negroes to abide by the law, let us also demand that the white man abide by law in the ghettos. Day-in and day-out he violates welfare laws to deprive the poor of their meager allotments; he flagrantly violates building codes and regulations; his police make a mockery of law; and he violates laws on equal employment and education and the provisions for civic services.”

                        Dr. King before he was assassinated became more militant in public as he opposed the Vietnam War and wanted radical solutions to solve poverty.

                        Have a Great Day Sister.

                          Exactly truth, thanks for posting these words. This quote you posted shows the real Dr. King, he was not some passive negro who went around keeping colored people in line–he was a revolutionary who “they” feared and hated just as much as they hated Malcolm X and anyone else who challenged their hatred. And you are right he did become more militant, when he started to address union problems was when he was assassinated. I remember right after Nelson Mandela passed away, one of his granddaughters very accurately stated that she did NOT want revisionists to paint him as this nice, sweet old man who just wanted peace. She wants him to be remembered as the freedom fighter he was.

                          There is no limit to what these evil trolls will lie about.

                            These trolls are liars and slanderers. Dr. Martin Luther King’s holiday is coming up. So, we feel very personal as black people when these trolls lie about what he really stood for. Dr. King was never passive in the face of injustice. He went to jail multiple times for violating unjust laws. Some folks seem to forget that the vast majority of Americans back then opposed Dr. King’s views on the Vietnam War and on the Poor People’s Campaign. They (or the bigots) of course hated Malcolm X, even after he achieved his Hajj in 1964. When Malcolm X called out an international Western conspiracy to harm people, he was assassinated. When Dr. King talked about reparations, union rights issues, and opposition to imperialism, then he was assassinated. Nelson Mandela was a freedom fighter too. Mandela promoted the Freedom Charter and other heroes include Chris Hani and Steve Biko.

                  ” just as Dr. King would have ”

                  To a large segment of your people, Black people applying civil disobedience (the way Dr. King taught) to fight white savagery is not only WORSE than throwing rocks; it’s your additional motivation to terrorize and murder anyone who threatens your insecurities and false sense of white supremacy. Which is why Dr. King is no longer here. Your people spit on him while he was peacefully marching and singing protest songs, so you have no business trying to tell any Black person what we need to learn from this American hero. He was not some passive Black man who taught the darkies how to behave, he helped expose the brutality and evil of your people to the world. And they murdered him (and many others) as a result of his teachings.

                  Now it’s not so easy to physically intimidate Black people who gather together to discuss racism and white fuckery (unless you are a white cop), the easiest way now for a regular caucasian is for you to invade our spaces and become Internet trolls on Black websites.

                  Do you want to continue bringing up Dr. King’s name, or would you like to discuss how the main objective of the civil rights movement was to civilize violent caucasians. Which is how we got the Civil Rights Act–do you understand that? The only way to reign in the terror and bias of your people was for the federal government to create new laws to make it illegal.

                  Also, the Civil Rights Act is the reason why homosexuality is designated as a protected class. And if you live in the States, now ya’ll can even marry each other. You should be thanking Dr. King instead of lying about his legacy.

If this story was just about a white boy insulting her and she went to HR, you would not have had anything to say. That story a few months ago about the white cretin who racially insulted the Black son of his co-worker: well there was no influx of caucasians showing up to bitch about that. A Black person defends themselves your sorry, nosy, insecure asses show up complaining and whitesplaining. And now your new tactic: to ask self righteously what would Dr. King do? Well he played by the rules for a time, and your people murdered him.

      Queer black woman here & I can’t tell what you’re going on & on about James Dorf. 1st, you have zero right to come to the page of an oppressed group you’re not part of & tell us how to talk about our oppression just because you belong to some other minority group. As a white man, you belong to 2 groups that have systematically oppressed & even continue to oppress the minority groups that we black women belong to. Your attempt to dictate to us how to deal with racism is actually both racist & sexist. As a cis person, even though I am a member of the lgbt community, I would never dare go to a page for trans folks & tell them how to deal with their oppression. How dare you?

      2ndly, you can’t compare your experiences to our own- they are not & will never be the same. As a queer black woman who grew up in an African country where homosexuality is illegal & who has faced discrimination & been exposed to violence several times, I am fully aware that lgbts are persecuted around the world- I am living proof of that. However, please have several seats if you want to compare your experience to that of blacks. Maybe when the oppressed group you belong to has been shipped across continents, beaten, raped, forced to work & get killed by the Police on a daily basis, you can come & compare your experiences. Till then leave us be & focus on your own issues.

Greg probably painted himself into a corner, because that’s one thing racists don’t understand…consequences.

And why the hell is the onus always on the black person to instigate “change” after being the victim of white racism? Why are we the ones expected to “take the high road” , “turn the other cheek” or “forgive”? We get disrespected, put down, laughed at, mocked… But are always expected to not give the same in return…maybe some are tired of being the doormat to white mockery!

    You’re confused. First, LaTora is easy to pronounce. If you can read, you can pronounce it. Evan insulted his new teammate’s name, and implied that she was a hood black girl–making it very clear he cared about her race–the moment they met. Genuinely having a hard time pronouncing someones name is vastly different than declaring that you won’t even bother to try. Second, she didn’t get others to join in, they joined of their own volition. Probably because Evan is a huge douche, because only a douche would introduce himself to a new teammate that way. Racism is systemic. A black person’s prejudice will generally have little to no impact on the course of a white person’s life. It’s completely different. Finally, getting back at someone for being a douche to you is not being racist OR discriminatory. Her story is about one white person in a whole team/office full of them. If he didn’t want to be poked fun at, he shouldn’t have been such an ass.

            It is so annoying! Mehn, must be so nice to be so privileged that you feel you can invade spaces of the oppressed & lecture them on how to talk about their oppression.

              Exactly, it never ceases to amaze me how they feel so entitled to add their two cents. I don’t go to their spaces lecturing them about what they should be doing.

                I have noticed an uptick of these trolls arrogantly telling black people what to think and how to respond. We, as black people, aren’t intimidated by them and we think for ourselves.

                            I was exposing racist trolls and white racism. Exposing racist trolls have nothing to do with promoting hate. Also, there is no such thing as “reverse” racism. Racism is racism. Black people have every right to expose police terror, to stand up against bigotry, and to fight for real solutions excluding post-racial propaganda. Many of the same racist trolls (who desire black passivity not courageous black militancy) who try to lecture black people on things refuse to confront white racism and many of them refuse to advocate justice for black people. Black people won’t be intimidated here. We will speak our minds as black people. All I want is justice for black people, equality, pan-African unity, and other great things that will benefit the black community as a whole. There is no peace without justice and there is no justice without peace. Mary Burrell is a great person and what she wants is the same things that I want. I will respect Sister Mary Burrell forever and ever.

                              How come when whites try to expose blacks for being in the wrong it is called racism? Ever heard of the black panther party? They are a terrorist group just like the kkk. Disgusting mentality in this forum. It makes me sad to know so many of you adults condone this woman’s immature actions. Both the man and the womans actions were child-like. But to put her on a pedestal as a hero makes you a horrible person. She is obviously racist as can be and you admire her. That makes you a racist too.

                              I am a proud white man. I am not ashamed to use those words. But as a man in general, I hold myself no higher than any other human regardless of race or sex.

                              I believe we confuse race and skin color as the problem between eachother. It does not come down to black or white. But a cultural preference. And I embrace the culture that I have always known and am familiar with. And I believe you favor your own culture aswell.

                                You have issued many falsehoods. I am not a racist. I don’t hate anyone. I don’t agree with oppression against anyone. I stand up for the interests and for the human rights of my black people. Also, many whites do talk about black people freely in forums and in public all of the time without being called racist. I do find that when many black people stand up for justice and stand up for black solidarity (in opposing white racism), they are falsely called racists by many white people. I heard of the Black Panther Party. They were invented in 1966. They stood up against police brutality, racism, and imperialism. They weren’t racists and they condemned racism explicitly in their words. The Black Panther Party (and even the NBPP) has not burned churches, hasn’t lynched people, never deprived people of a job, never deprived people of the right to vote nationally in a mass scale, and haven’t marched with hoods on their faces to advocate various evils. So, the Black Panther Party is never equivalent to the KKK. The black woman in this story was the victim of racism by a racist white male. She responded to him verbally with no racial slurs and no personal attacks on his job performance. She called him Anglicized names. I’m not a horrible person and you are a disrespectful person for disrespecting black people here that you don’t know. Also, you are a hypocrite by lecturing people on racism, but you made the stereotypical, bigoted comments to another black person (who you don’t know) in your own words:

                                “…Lol no surprise you don’t work. How do you like the food stamps we white people pay for?”

                                Your response to this black person was horrible and uncalled for. There is no justification for that remark. So, you are not slick as most black people don’t have food stamps. Also, whites are numerically most of the people who have food stamps. So, you are certainly a person with views that I don’t agree with. Many far right white people believe in their views beyond just culture. Many of them want the world to submit to their ideological views and I will never believe in far right ideologies at all. The system of racism/white supremacy should end, so a system of justice can exist. Racism is a systematic problem that must be eradicated. So, black people will continue to speak our minds here.

    Why do people like you always start stories in the middle? Thereby excusing the vilest shit without the slightest shred of intellectual honesty? He aimed his little, cognitively inept racist pee shooter at her and squeezed off his best shot, clearly under the illusion that he was her mental equal. And she declared asymmetrical war and escalated to psychic Extinction Level Event, on his candy ass…as was her right, duty and God sanctioned commandment. He wasn’t ready. And, apparently from the volume and particular pungency of your precious white tears, neither were you. Which just adds more flavor to the sweet vengeance banquet that Ms. Luuuuuhhhh-tooorrrrr-uuuhhhh served him and you and all of the rest of you fragile, micro aggression monkeys.

      Really “God sanctioned commandment”?! to be unforgiving and hostile, vengeful? I believe in sticking up for oneself when mistreated but not being hateful, spiteful, and reverse racism. If you’re going to quote the Bible, didn’t Jesus teach about love??! Again, by all means stick up for yourself when justified but when you stoop low, you are bringing yourself down to your persecutors level. Is that where you want to be? Not to mention, work is supposed to be a professional environment, both individuals in the above story were at fault so were any others that played into it.

        It happened to me. I have a very common name, and my white coworkers at the time gave me a “ghetto” name, you know, as a joke. I was still really young and afraid to lose my job at the time to say anything. It happened to me, and I am male. I can’t fathom what happens to many black women in the office.

    I really am getting tired of ethnic attitude – white, black, and all the rest included. And when a person can’t express herself without the use of the F-bomb, just forget it. How about we start treating one another with respect – whether we actually feel respectful or not – and see if our society doesn’t become more civilized? Returning disrespect with respect will diffuse the problem much more easily than all this confrontational diatribe!

    Well done!!

    I did this same thing once. I have red hair (no I am not black, but stay with me) and hate being called “Red”. I have a name, if you don’t know it or won’t ask me, then please do not address me at all. A name is dignity and respect and should be used that way.

    Working with an older guy who keeps calling me Red, and I repeatedly tell him not to do it, my tone getting more biting each time. So I started calling him “whitey” (he had graying hair, so it was also aging him). For weeks, he said nothing. Finally, he asks me why I am calling him that. I tell him because of his hair color. He says, my hair isn’t white. I said, exactly. and walked away. He never called me Red again.
