    A one-off post like that is a little different than months of racially charged invective like this guy was producing.

    I mean, you can be not racist and dislike Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (who in fact, pretty much are loudmouths, race aside). A single possibly-racially-tinged post isn't really the same thing as months and months of derogatory material against blacks and Jews like the guy in this diary was producing.

    I'm kind of against firing people for non-work-related conduct (though it is legal). The guy in this diary, definitely fire him, no question. Your relative, though? For that?

      He has a habit of posting things like that.  I can see your point about being more lenient if it were a one-off, but no, he has a history.
