Yet another day pleasing to my ego and bank account. Thanks.

OT, but I swear that the PC Police must be reading you. What was it, last week when you mentioned that Apple gets a pass on diversity? Then I see this yesterday:

Lawsuit accuses Broadway Apple Store employees of racial discrimination

By Neil Hughes
Published: 12:25 PM EST

Apple is the target of a new lawsuit that claims employees of the company's Upper West Side store in New York City told two black men they were not welcome there.

Plaintiffs Brian Johnston, 34, and Nile Charles, 25, have accused Apple of discrimination after an incident they claim occurred on Dec. 9, 2010. Both Johnston and Charles went to the store at 1981 Broadway when the incident allegedly began with an Apple employee, said to be white and in his 50s.

The lawsuit notes that Charles and Johnston, who are black, went to the Broadway Apple store wearing "baggy jeans and large sweaters with hoods" to purchase headphones. It was around 3:20 p.m., they claim, that the Apple employee, about 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, confronted them.

The lawsuit alleges that the Apple employee approached the customers in an "intimidating fashion," invading their "personal space," and said to them, "You know the deal. You know the deal."

The employee allegedly told the plaintiffs that they must leave the store unless they planned to purchase something or see a Mac Specialist. Johnston and Charles claim that before they could respond, the Apple employee told them they were not welcome there because of their race.

"And before you say I'm racially discriminating against you, let me stop you. I am discriminating against you," the lawsuit claims the employee said. "I don't want 'your kind' hanging out in the store."

Johnston and Charles say they were "shocked and humiliated" by the alleged incident. They reportedly used their cell phones to record the confrontation when they say another Apple Store employee approached them.

"Now you have to go," one of the employees is claimed in the lawsuit to have said. "If you want to know why, it's because I said so. CONSIDER ME GOD. You have to go."

I believe in HBD, but I'm a Jew, and you allow in too many beyond the pale anti-Jewish comments as a moderator, so I'd rather give more of my money to AIPAC than to you.

It's a combination of IQ/penis envy though Steve intimates that he's part Polish (yeah, right). Feel sorry for him or whatever.

I decided to give my money to those people whose homes got decimated in Joplin. But, if you think Steve shouldn't have to go work at McDonalds or anything, by all means, send him some cash.
