    Actually race is what is protected not a specific race.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Since I am part of a protected class, where are my bodyguards? Who will protect my threads from being deleted? Who will protect my daughters from people like Epstein? Where is my protection?

    You may want to crack open a history book if you don't know what "protected class" means. Everyone else does. Or start a thread asking for a definition.

    I just like to clarify that race is what is protected and not a specific race.

    I tell you this miss, I'm black and I damn sure don't feel like I am getting any protection. And if black people are a protected class, whoever is protecting them isn't doing a very good job.

    Then you better complain to your government representatives and not me. I can't help you.

    I know you can't help, that is stating the obvious. I was merely making an observation.

    Mr. Cochran held his own news conference Tuesday. He said that the city’s investigation found that he had not acted in a discriminatory way toward gay people, and said that he had asked for, and received, permission from the proper bureaucratic channels to write the book — an assertion Mr. Reed’s office disputes.

    Mr. Reed added that the chief had not told him about the book and its “inflammatory content.”
    ...the chief's statement that he handed the book out only to like-minded Christians is highly suspect. If he does believe that's what he did, he misjudged greatly, alienated his employees and created a hostile work environment. And of course it reflected badly on the city itself.

    Because the book had been published, it was available to anyone who wanted to read it. They created their own hostile environment by citing a book that could have just as well been the Bible.
    The chief didn't just write the book on the side and then get ambushed with it. He made it a work issue.
