If the shoes fit, put them on.
Saying she was fired because she’s white
Published June 21, 2016
Wendy Bella (face fits the name) a Pittsburgh anchorwoman, who was fired after comments she posted on the most dangerous website on the internet, Facebook, about a shooting was deemed racially insensitive, filed a lawsuit against her former employer Monday saying the television station let her go because she is white.
The way I see it, it all depends on who is deciphering the comments as to if they were racist or not.
She commented on the March 9 about the shooting of five black people in a poor suburb of Pittsburgh, Wilkinsburg, Pa.
“You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts, – they are young black men, likely in their teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested.”
She has filed federal lawsuit against WTAE-TV that the station fired her on March 30 “because of her race,” violating her civil rights.
Ms. Bell’s ambulance chaser followed up with his comments on the firing. Had Ms. Bell written the same comments about white criminal suspects or had her race not have been white, Defendant would not have fired her, much less disciplined her,” the lawsuit reads. “Ms. Bell’s posting of concern for the African-American community stung by mass shooting was clearly and obviously not intended to be racially offensive.”
Bell is seeking back pay, punitive damages and her old job. I hope she gets all she wants and more. Take the PC nonsense out of the equation and there would not be a problem.
Being objective; I don’t think Bell was arrested for being white, I think it is for what she said because she is white.
