That's what happens when ppl can't sympathize and put themselves in other ppl's shoes. The woman shouldn't have been fired but should've handled it w/ kid gloves because the target is obviously very sensitive to these types of prejudicial checks (regardless if she herself had no ill-intent), and the guy shouldn't have over-reacted either.
What bothers me is that people automatically assume that her actions were "racist" simply because she was white and he black, without any supporting evidence.

Ya, that's why one has to proceed w extreme caution. Touchy subject.
The richest 1% of this country owns half our country’s wealth, 5 trillion dollars, one-third of that comes from hard work, two-thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons, and what I do.. <find the rest>

Oh yeah, because if that person would had been a blonde hair guy with blue eyes wearing a business suit she would have shot him anyways. Its funny how only non blacks think that these police vs black shootings are not racist. I will believe it when a black person tells me that.

I didn't say it was or wasn't due to racism. Rather, I said that we cannot automatically assume it was caused by racism solely because he was black and she was white.
