    As a Fire Department employee he has a contractual duty not to post as he did.
    Don't work out, work in.

    That sounds like your bias speaking. But discrimination has nothing to do with this. This is about behavior on a public site.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It doesn't matter. Facebook is getitng all kinds of people in trouble with their jobs for all kinds of reasons. Had a teacher lose one here because she said bad things about the prinicipal. She too posted on her site. It is the nature of our times.

    Nope. Neither the laws of florida, nor the provisions of his contract, were broken

    That's right discrimination had nothing to do with his demoting, he was just targeted cause he's white.

    What standard are you using? How does this statement reflect upon his department should they not have disciplined this public servant?
    Another one who thinks people shouldn't have free speech if they are critical of the black sacred cow.

    Just a side note: Freedom of speech may give you the ability to say what you want, but there are still consequences for your actions.

    Example: Freedom of speech does not mean I go and get to yell racial slurs and not have consequences for it.

    Exactly! Some people don't even know what freedom of speech means

    No. He said something public that he should have been more private with. I'm sorry you see racism everywhere, but it really isn't the issue here.
