    Where did I ever say it justified violence? We have free will and must pay the consequences for it sometimes.....like if we break the law. Violence in most cases is against the law.

    If you are saying that applying common sense before you speak isn't in the Constitution, or the actual right to Freedom of Speech isn't in the Constitution, you are correct. The Right comes from the First Amendment to the Constitution. Common sense can't be bought, endowed, guaranteed or taught.

    And not everybody has it.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

Some of the other sites that specifically cater to various races owned by her company: OkCupid, SpeedDate, Meetic, SinglePeopleMeet. This company did the right thing just as A&E did by rehiring Phil Robertson. It erred on the side of caution and played to its audience. Firing this woman, however, puts strong emphasis on what I've been telling people for years. Popularity doesn't matter jack **** in media. Sponsors and demographics do. A&E's Duck Dynasty's demographic are rednecks and people of low income. Firing Phil Robertson will simply make sure they stop watching. This woman on the other hand is an executive. Firing her won't damage the company one bit. It will benefit them because the person they're firing is not a bread winner.

    In short, getting fired in the media world depends on highly specific conditions. If you have the right audience, the right sponsors and the right income, nobody will care. If viewers of A&E boycotted by not watching any of A&E's other shows, they'd have a shot at cancelling Duck Dynasty. However, as that is unlikely to happen, the show will remain.
    How is it that the bolded statement isn't racist when if I said "Real Housewives of Atlanta's demographics are n*****s and people of low income" I would be infracted on this website for that and everyone on here would attack me for it. Can you explain that? And I don't want to hear the excuse that they call themselves rednecks. Black people call themselves n***a all the time but it still isn't cool if I say it.

    "Redneck" isn't a racial slur.
