Reminds me:

Punishment of heretics, whether through actions of individuals and thus abuse, harassment, doxing, threats, or through actions of corporations and thus firing, or state and thus imprisonment, serve to make people conform to those very ideologies and ideals. Faced with the threat of destructive power of such actions, to their safety, well-being and livelihoods, individuals have little choice but to conform. Even worse, they internalize heresies dominant in our society and self-police themselves, their own actions and thoughts, becoming “their own overseer, each individual thus exercising surveillance over, and against themself.”

How absurd. And then the guy's smugness that this should happen to others. It's gross. Bevy takes the word of a stranger over its employee with zero proof of any wrong doing. Wrong, this is just wrong.

I’d like to know the full context. Could be true but considering the eagerness to highlife white ppl saying stupid things while showing zero interest when black ppl act like fools I’m skeptical

Fired from what?

A job? Do you think a grown woman twerking on an ambulance at 11 at night on a weekday is going to wake up at 7 the next morning to prepare for a job?

Wards of the state, my brother. They have no repercussions to fear

Didn't need to tell me that the guy taking the opportunity of his viral fame to shill his race baiting book on twitter might not have come across his tightly editted racist ordeal organically. But having even more reason never hurts.

Hell the 'bystander' might well be the same friend he wrote his book on being a good white ally about. There's literally no evidence of her being racist beyond her skin colour. Hell at this point I'm assuming his dog was actually a menace too.

She had no reason to hate him. Then he gave her one.

Yes but to be fair, wasn't she actually video recorded doing it?

To be fair, even if that was the case - and it isn't - whether or not she committed heresy against liberalism shouldn't determine if she remains employed, and if people will defend her.

These are right down the divide and conquer checklist. Keep everyone scared of and fighting with each other. You can always find ways to categorize people into groups then set them against each other.
