She claims FT characterized her as a *Karen*, and that's sexual and racial discrimination. According to Damon T Hewitt from the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (A civil rights legal expert based in NY) the (Amy Cooper's) case has no grounds and called it inappropriate, adding that Ms....

If racial characterizations such as Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima are racist, then what about characterizing a white woman as a *Karen*, is also racist? That's her argument in her lawsuit. She claims FT characterized her as a *Karen*, and that's sexual and racial discrimination. https://www.managingip.com/...

Even if Amy Cooper could demonstrate autistic traits (even you are hesitant to claiming she has a diagnosis because we both know she doesn't) that doesn't mean she is not capable of not knowing right from wrong or how to weaponise race (which is what she clearly did). Autism (disability) is not par...

Does anyone have a link to the exact wording of that legislature? Since this is the key issue here.

There's no exact wording, because they're dropping what already exists, and not adding anything new.

That said if you read the article you know exactly what he is against, if you just read the headline that is on you. I read the article and it shows Clampton's public statement that he doesn't support discrimination. https://t.me/robinmg/6116 The article does not say Clapton was skeptical, rather, ...

He says he opposes discrimination.

“I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present".

Why the name calling of "anti-vaxxer", and "flawed person"?

I am in favor of free speech. So a teacher should say what she really thinks. If she thinks KKK is immoral, let her say it. If she doesn't think that, she shouldn't be forced to say something she doesn't actually think. I think you will find that is the crux of the issue. For example the legislatio...

Are you sure? I haven't seen anything suggesting he isn't (I've seen quite a lot suggesting he is, though), so would be interested to see where he left her legal team. Her new attorneys are listed on the lawsuit, page 24. From memory, these are employment lawyers, while Barnes is a civil rights law...

This is a grotesque topic of celebrating someone's death. Deaths of evil people get celebrated all the time. Hitler, Saddam, Bin Laden, this a-hole, and eventually the orange guy. or we can choose virtue over the contemptible act of celebrating death with what're called ... the three most powerful ...

* Ms Cooper is either autistic, or at least "on the spectrum" - At one pont her lawyer starts saying she is autistic, then part way through changes to "on the spectrum", which could be read to mean that she simply has traits, or that it was a decision to use different terminolog...

This is a grotesque topic of celebrating someone's death. Frankly nobody is celebrating, he's dead, deal with it. Gloating? "Gloating" is an English word of similar meaning, where "gloat" means "to observe or think about something with triumphant and often malicious satisfa...

I'm not concerned with labelling them as sinners, just accurately describing them as a white supremacist terrorist organization that used violence to deny American citizens their civil rights . I'm not interested in moralizing about them, simply describing their actions and motives should be enough...
