Star Wars Solo FLOP and fan BOYCOTT: Will Disney FIRE Kathleen Kennedy?








We are long past the point where “ignoring the trolls” was effective, and to pretend to do so merely empowers the bullies. We have seen what happens when these supposed minorities of the fan communities, ones dominated by angry white men, decide to launch concerted harassment campaigns against those with apparent “political agendas” that they accuse of “ruining their childhood.” We saw what happened when the extended public humiliation of a woman by her ex-boyfriend became a platform to attack women and minorities in the video game industry under the fa├žade of “ethics in game journalism.” We saw the aftermath of the racists and misogynists who hijacked the Hugo Awards in “protest” against the increasing diversification of the genre.

Oregon Bakery Fires Employees For Denying Black Woman Service After Closing

Oregon Bakery Fires Employees For Denying Black Woman Service After Closing | KDNL

PORTLAND, Ore. — Two employees of a bakery in Portland, Oregon were fired earlier this month for denying a black woman service because the business had closed.

"Back To Eden Bakery" released several public apologies and statements following the incident, before letting the employees go. In one Facebook post, the bakery's co-owner wrote, "We are doing business in a gentrified neighborhood in a racist city within a racist state of a racist country.

In one statement, "Back To Eden Bakery" says that according to its own surveillance video, a black woman named "Lillian", who is well known in the area as a "professional equity activist", entered at 9:06 p.m., after the bakery's closing time. Employees had also turned off the "Open" sign, but several customers (all white) who had already ordered were still inside. Two other white women who went to the bakery two minutes before "Lillian", and were also informed that the business was closed for the night.

The bakery says "Lillian" left the store briefly and began recording video.

The bakery's statement says that even though it does not consider the employees to be racist and that they were following the business's protocol of closing at 9 p.m., they were fired because "sometimes impact outweighs intent." The bakery also says in the statement that the way the employees went about denying the woman service, "lacked sensitivity and understanding of the racial implications at work."
