    I couldn't get your link to work but found it elsewhere.>>>

    Well, apparently, she also had her EMPLOYER listed on her Facebook page, and COLD STONE CREAMERY received angry tweets and/or calls about her comments.

    As an employee there, her PUBLIC comments negatively reflected on that company and so they had the right to fire her, especially if that company has an "ETHICS" clause in its employee regulations.

    Some jobs can/will fire you if you get arrested outside of work for any offense, even if misdemeanor.

    School districts can/will not renew the contract of an UN-WED teacher who gets pregnant.

    So, IMO, no, her comments do not fall under "freedom of speech" if her behavior/conduct OUTSIDE of work is connected to her employment. --- If such is in her company's "Employee Handbook," then that director had every right to fire her.

    At any rate, that's what she get for being so STUPID, anyway. :lol:

    As I've said before, I prefer that these white folks take off their hoods and suits and heels and reveal their TRUE selves instead of presenting a FALSE FACE in public and telling "N!gg3r jokes" in PRIVATE.

    I would rather know just WHO and WHAT I'm dealing with, UP FRONT.

    I think its justified. If she had said it in the workplace she would lost her job so putting it out in the open for everyone to see, colleagues etc included what more did she expect. Ah 2012 weH ah live in!

    Yes, if she made the post on company time, racist or not.

    If she did not post while on company time, no.

    On the other hand, I have to agree with sister cherry blossom because this woman was a Store Manager.

    Managers are typically held to a higher ethical standard.

    I didn't even see/read that part.

    wow.....A "Store Manager" at 22 years old. --- Well, let this be a lesson to her. :hammer:

    In light of this incident, I wonder what kind of "work reference" Cold Stone Creamery would give her for the next place she applies for employment......"Hmmmm."

    At the end of the day, she hasn't been imprisoned or prosecuted. She hasn't been denied her freedom of speech. She spoke, but no employer wants to hire someone who holds such reprehensible views which is why the majority of racists these days are closet racists. It just isn't wise to take those views out with you in public. You will be judged for it. If she didn't get the sack it would have been a very hostile work place. She could have kept it to herself but for whatever reason she just couldn't resist.

    I listened to the video twice to make sure that I heard correctly.

    This is why I am very careful about what information I post in Facebook.

    After an event like this she probably would do better not to list her prior work history or ask for a reference from this company.

    But who knows. She might be dumb enough to do so anyway.

    Freedom of Speech is a misunderstood term. It stands to reason that the liberty addresses a Government's ability to harm a person for a policy disagreement; but not to embrace people whom plain aim to hurt others.

    Personally, I think she should have never had a job or have been born for that matter.
