If those things annoy you, why choose to censor yourself? That doesn't sound much like freedom.



Boy I wish I could assault black people and tell them to pull up their God damn pants.......

But I'm not black so I actually have to FOLLOW the laws of society.


Which Black ppl do you wished to assult?? these guys or

The guy on the right??

Maybe these two inappropriate saggy pants Blacks above??

One cannot mistake this urban white youngster right here for a saggy bottomed black who deserved to be assaulted..

I understand what you mean about people getting fired for sometimes questionable reasons. In this case, I don't know anything beyond the video. I don't know what their code of conduct is (although I'm sure this goes against it). If this truly is an isolated incident, I would think that a warning, a note in her file and perhaps even an unpaid suspension might do the trick.


Ooooo....did I hear 'sensitivity training time?'

I think I did...

Absolutely NOT! I made sure that didn't get slipped in by accident. I think of my suggestions, the unpaid suspension would be by far the biggest encouragement for her to change her ways.

That's a well formulated answer!

I also took some time to ponder about what i would do if id be her boss.

I think i would also first check the code of conduct.
Then ask her what her side of the story is (maybe there was something happening before the vid).
Then I would ask that she apologises to the guy and give her a warning: Next incident you are out.

If she would not apologise or behave uncooparative - fire her.



In the mean time i did some more research, she lists several jobs, two of them Uni related
Associated Students Inc. SFSU
Women's Center (SFSU)

I don't really know if these organisations are official University Jobs, or it's more like "i did some videos for a student association to put it in my CV.

Anyways the real funny/bigot thing is; she produced a video called "the things we carry" the gist is how hard it is to grow up as a black woman in the US.

One line in the video (around 1:35 mark) "I don^t want her to wake up and think brown skin or CURLY HAIR is wrong."

Can't make this stuff up:

Yeah, that annoys me. Clearly, she doesn't think that so why would she think this kid might think that?

At best, she is ignorant. At worst, she's a racist.

Fire her immediately.

After seeing her behaviour; would you employ her?

I ask because i am on the fence about it; there have been some cases where people lost their jobs because of silly remarks
in private.

For instance the case where two IT guys made sexual jokes about USB-dongles at a private conference. A feminist heard the jokes, was offended and tweeted it. End Result; the two IT guys lost their job, the woman as well (for snitching).

I thought that was too harsh in all three cases, i think private conversations should not have influence on the job.

But in this case the woman works at the Uni, so she represents the University and now the whole thing goes viral with the name of the University. And normally they have code of conducts which are strict on sexism/racism.


She is young and stupid when it comes to this. All the #BLM activity has brought forth a new generation of activists and sometimes they get caught up in their own importance. They believe too much of what they have been told and don't realize that some of their antics are counterproductive. Would I hire her as a videographer? I don't know; I don't have any need for a videographer and have no way of judging her abilities. If I did, she would certainly go through an extensive training program of all the company courses of how to behave.
She may well lose her job and have a difficult time finding another unless she happens on a like minded boss. I expect she will be underpaid as she will be carrying the baggage of national exposure and possibly an assault charge. If "yo yo" has any sense, he'll not press assault charges and say that it was public theater....which it may well be, given the fortuitous video.

Racist - check
Should she be fired - check

This only works in the real world , The left coast is not the real world. She will be hailed as a conquering hero.


I live in California, it's real all right, the only things that are unreal, are your overly generalized assumptions.

Update: SF State has provided a statement regarding the video:

“We are aware of the video made of an incident which occurred on campus yesterday afternoon. University police were called to the scene of the incident when it occurred. The two individuals involved in the incident are not San Francisco State University employees. Further, no criminal charges have been pressed at this time to the University’s knowledge.

San Francisco State University promotes the rights of the campus community to engage in free speech, but does not condone behavior that impedes the safety or well-being of others. We are taking the matter seriously and will promptly and thoroughly investigate this incident through applicable University channels, including our campus student conduct procedures.”


Plus Goldstein (the dreadlock guy) said in a public Facebook post that he won’t be pressing charges against the woman in the video but he did file a campus police report against her.

And if he Did "man up" and shouted at her to piss off and stop being such an idiot? Or god forbid shoved her away from him??

HE would have been publicly crucified for being a violent racist.


Doesn't mean he'd have been wrong though...

You're cute, but your profile says you are from "Hotlanta." Is that in Georgia?

You have no business slamming California for anything. Georgia is the 11th most dependent state on Federal dollars, and California is the 46th.

That means you take more from the government than you pay in taxes.

Welfare states don't get to make wild accusations about California being in the "real world." Your whole house of cards would collapse entirely without donor states like California who subsidize your lifestyle.

Political Correctness does not allow racism to be more than a one-way street... which is unfortunate because it exists at every level, with every ethnicity.

It is something that, I hope, we outgrow and evolve beyond because failing that, the only word to be applied, is 'hypocrisy'.

I know, it's comedy gold!
My local police would laugh him out of town if it didn't annoy them that he'd wasted their time on such a lame complaint, lol.
This surely cannot be indicative of average US youth...can it?!

I live in Cali and have lived here my whole life. Your generalizations about Cali and the people here just show how little you know about, well basically anything. The fact that you do so while living in Georgia just makes it even funnier.

Your quick, myopic and incorrect opinions of another state mean nothing and should probably just be kept to yourself. Speaking them aloud just makes you seem that much more ignorant of, well basically everything.

People here are no different than anywhere else. There's both good and bad anywhere you go. But I'll tell ya what, you hate Cali so much, fine, don't come here. We won't miss you not visiting, believe me.

I'm pretty sure it is mandatory as soon as physical contact is made.

And, that doesn't mean either of the parties involved made that decision. That could have been a unilateral decision y the university after the video went viral.

Thanks and me too. Born and bred. Tired of the ignorant attacks on CA.

Should we call everyone from the south an ignorant hillbilly on welfare. Hey, check the official stats on education and public assistance.

CA is extremely diverse. While there are high concentration areas (major cities on the coast) where people tend to be more liberal, CA is largely agricultural -- and those areas tend to be more conservative.

It's really about 50/50 -- as most states seem to be today. Depending on the issue.

Not real police but campus police.

But yeah. Personally i would not have done that.
I guess the viral s-storm will be enough punishment for the woman.

47sec of stupidity on tape - and there goes the job chances.

I am glad that back in my university days were no cameras around. :-)
