Once again, Georgia just makes me shake my head. Â The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals just ruled that:
there were no racial overtones when a white supervisor called an adult black man â€œboy.â€
â€œThe usages were conversational,â€ the majority explained, repeating what it had told the trial court after the Supreme Court ruled, and â€œnonracial in context.â€ Even if â€œsomehow construed as racial,â€ the unsigned 2-to-1 decision went on, â€œthe comments were ambiguous stray remarksâ€ that were not proof of employment discrimination.
I’m thinking the majority hangs out in the same places that Rep. Lynn Westmoreland does.
