  •  she's a public figure with a platform (0+ / 0-)

    and it was way more than just using the N word in the past.When she admitted it in her deposition, for example, she didn't mitagate it with an apology or saying she'd not use it now or how unfortunate it was to have that word in her vocabulary. She thought it was just normal to use back then but she felt no embarrassment. Then there are the accusations that other employees back up around how she treated her Black employees. Her nostalgia for slavery times is very creepy to most of us...it whitewashes a time when Black people were enslaved, murdered, treated as nonhuman. To me, it's like Holocaust revisionism (am Jewish). Ick!
