Racists Getting Fired

Searched and didn't find this particular page. If this topic has been done (and that wouldn't surprise me here) let me know and I'll delete the thread.

So take a look:

http://gettingracistsfired.com/tagged/gotten

I guess people will take very undeniably racist posts people make off Facebook or Twitter and let the company they work for know in hopes to get them fired. The one I linked has successful "missions."

Anyways, what do you think of this? Do you think racists deserve no sympathy from this? Maybe this is going too far to punish them?

Does not sit right with me. Something about free speech and invasion of privacy...

but then again I do like seeing dumbasses get their asses handed to them for being dumbasses.

It certainly makes sense from a financial standpoint. If you believe that having a hated figure in your business won't be as lucrative, then all right.

Yeah, let's put a bunch of angry racists on the streets. Great plan.

If a business wants to fire an employee for being racist it's their prerogative.

As long as it's not violent or targeting any particular person then no.

If it's non-violent, and wasn't in the office or during hours, maybe just let them off with a warning.

I'm not bothered by it and maybe it'll prompt them to change their ways. :samshrug:

Imagine being stupid enough to spout a stream of racist nonsense under your real name with your contact info freely available. Imagine...

i dont think i like this. people can post whatever they like so long as they are not on company time, not representing the company, and not doing anything illegal (death threats, etc).

like if Joe Schmo posts on the weekend on his personal account how much he hates the turbanites that stole his spot in line at a game or concert or something and then gets fired on monday because these assholes narc'd on him, **** them and **** that company.
