He demanded ID from a black lady at the community pool near his home. He made enough fuss that she started filming his oppressive action. She actually showed the policeman he called on her her pass card. The police declared it a civil matter, despite the fact that she was the only person asked for ID, and that would have been the end of it, except when the company he worked for saw the viral video, he became an instant ex-employee. YAY!

Part of me is delighted. Another part of me is a bit worried.

How much due diligence did his employer do before terminating him?

But it is their right to protect their brand, and even if he had a contract, he probably violated it.

Employers do not care about due diligence. They only wish to look good in front of the cameras.

Well, from what i saw in the tape, there isnt much of a case here for "racism." The lady has not proven that this man did not id anyone else, she could not know this.

Another fake cry of racism to get free stuff, money or to get someone fired.

No one knows what really happened here, dont act like you do.

Yes, it certainly is a civil matter. Its not a crime when someone asks you for id.

This was a mere 40 miles from my home.

I especially love The Bigot with The Spigot's moobs.
