Face it, you've been owned in this thread. Take your lumps and move on.
So why did a government bought/paid/run by capitalistic(ism) people fire him then? Sounds like typical capitalism with no empathy for others to me.

Maybe i should have just said "Murica Fuck Yeah!" instead.

" reverse racial-discrimination lawsuit "

What is Reverse racial-discrimination. Wouldn't it be just racial-discrimination. The reverse of racial discrimination shouldn't be a problem.
