The worst part was, after I filed a complaint, nobody did or said anything until I took it past HR. People thought I was joking. They didnt make the video and just did still pictures of various departments. ANYWAY, the dude was reprimanded, to what degree IDK but I hope its the same punishment a white person would get if he/she said the same thing about another race because that was a blatant racist comment. The point is you shouldn't discriminate against anyone based on race, color, sexual preference, or religion and if you say you're against it then be against it.
In reference to the story, I don't know what was said, if it was severe he's deserves whatever punishment he gets, but I can tell you as someone who has had what I would call a multicultural group of friends, minor off color comments come from all of them about everyone. Hell the NBA did nothing to Montrezl Harrell simply because he said "i didnt mean anything racially" which is complete bull. Much like Dennis LIndsey (which miraculously has dwindled.) guilty or innocent Leonard will now be considered a racist because when it comes to stuff like this there isn't an in between or one standard for everyone. He cant say, "I didnt mean anything racially", he can't apologize.
For someone who claims they have "a mulicultural group of friends" you seem out of touch by this comment. You really think the impact of Montrezl calling Luka a "b**** a** white boy" is the same thing as using a Jewish slur which is what Meyers said?
And before I get the, bUT if LuKA saID "bLAck BoY" eVERYonE woulD bE uP in ARMs. Well of course. If we look at American history, the context of calling a Black man "boy" had and still can have racial undertones.
