‘Tucker Carlson Is Proper’ RNC Declares in Fundraising E-mail After Fox Host Promotes White Supremacy

A ruling by Supreme Court candidate Amy Coney Barrett whitewashing racism in the workplace shocked the Internet this week.

In a recent report on Barrett’s noteworthy opinions, the Associated Press highlighted a 2019 decision on workplace discrimination that Barrett had drafted for a unanimous panel of three judges.

According to the report, Barrett said there was no evidence that the use of the n-word “created a hostile or abusive work environment.”

The AP reported:

“The n-word is an egregious racist epithet,” wrote Barrett in Smith v. Illinois Department of Transportation. “That said, Smith cannot win simply by proving the word was pronounced. He must also demonstrate that Colbert’s use of the word altered the terms of his employment and created a hostile or abusive work environment. “

Twitter users reacted in shock on Tuesday when lawyer Jill Filipovic shared details of the case.

Here is a racial discrimination case that Barrett ruled on when she wrote that it does not constitute a hostile or abusive work environment for your manager to use the N word at work. https://t.co/BUG4vcSzJE pic.twitter.com/egSDRL6rpg

Many of the commentators wondered if Barrett would think the same way if their adopted black children had been the subject of racial discrimination.

By definition, this creates a hostile work environment. Your opinion only plays with words.

She will be appointed no matter what. When the Supreme Court was first established, our lifespans were not that long, hence a “life” designation. This should be addressed again now as our lifespan is longer.

This is about as hostile as it gets.

one wonders if she would feel that a teacher was using the word “simply” about one of her children to create a hostile or abusive learning environment? and when i think about it honestly i’m a little afraid what their answer would be.

The founders probably used the n word the whole time, so it’s obviously fine. Originalism ftw.

Holy shit! What the hell would she call hostile or abusive ?!

How can you prove that “tremendous” hostility changes subjective experience?

If this is what will sit on the country’s highest court, then the Democrats have no choice but to grab the court when they get the chance!

Having the N-word at work does not constitute a hostile work environment in one of her decisions, Barrett said. She is not appropriate for making that decision on her own. #SCOTUShearings

This is madness. There are few things more hostile than being called subhuman by someone who preoccupies you. It’s even worse than I thought.

And even Kavanaugh disagrees with them. He wrote. “No other word in the English language reminds so strongly or instantly of our country’s long and brutal struggle to overcome racism. A single, sufficiently serious incident can create a hostile work environment.”

It is for life, I think, not for a peaceful, fair and equal life

Impressive. What century does she live in? The word n ​​per se is periodic, hostile, and abusive.

When their kids get the N word, it goes like this: pic.twitter.com/YCuKaVmPtQ

I hope we gather around their children when they grow up. The trauma that happens in this house.

Instead of getting an appointment with the highest court in our country, she has to be arrested for child molestation.

Oh, she understands. She just wants to reset employee protection by at least 100 years.

My daughter just told me that. “That’s why she has the black kids, they do all the work, watching. People have already noticed that they wear the same clothes most of the time, but the white kids are in new or different clothes.” She shouldn’t have black children

How does the boss, as an HR professional who pronounces the N word, NOT make it a hostile workplace? I mean, FFS… pic.twitter.com/h0Rml8hiPO

Since she dragged her children to the hearing, we should be sure that her two black children get a copy of it.

Wow … I feel sorry for your two adopted children from Haiti. I wonder what they are called when no one is around to hear.
