Somehow I don't think that there will be any "Tebowing" on the Denver sidelines tonight. I don't know how I got tricked into thinking this game was going to be close by the A-merry-can hype machine. Tebow is who he is: A below average football player who happens to be a good guy. Brady, on the other hand, has a child out of wedlock, and doesn't strike me as a guy who pays his tithe on Sunday mornings. And yet the big gal allowed him to throw six (Six!) touchdowns so far tonight. (There is still seven minutes left in the third quarter as I write this post.)
Tebow just got sacked again. This is getting ugly. I wonder what the forty three percent of A-merry-cans who believe that God helps Tim Tebow win football games think she is doing tonight? Tebow just got sacked again. I think I will change the channel now. Maybe ESPN is showing clips of the Saints Forty Niners game.
Finally, what would a Saturday night post be without chasing the Big R a little bit?
MJ, I know that you are firmly in the house these days. (Well you always have been more of a house Negro) But I sure hope that you step up to the plate and issue a statement or get with the people at Hanes about the ignorance that went on at that company. As their number one spokesperson you owe us that much.
"Former employee Yunusa Kenchi has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against Hanesbrands — most known for its Michael Jordan underwear commercials — after being terminated from his role as creative designer at the company, according to the Village Voice.
Lawyer Patrick Boyd of the Boyd Law Group said that Kenchi faced “consistent insults and ridicule from a hostile supervisor.” The abuse carried on until Kenchi intercepted an e-mail from his boss describing him as a “N*gger.”
The e-mail stated:
Kenchi is seeking “a meaningful apology from Hanes” and unspecified compensation from the company “in excess of $1 million.Attorney Boyd expressed his feelings regarding the undergarment company:
A company this large, dealing with a diverse community, is not taking responsibility. [The e-mailer] was a designer for the Michael Jordan line of clothing for many years! It goes to show you that even companies with prominent African-American spokespeople can have racist elements at a high level.Since then, Hanes has issued an apology:
Hanesbrands Inc. is proud of its diverse worldwide workforce and does not tolerate discriminatory behavior. After allegations emerged of improper conduct in the termination of Mr. Kenchi, Hanesbrands conducted a thorough investigation and found evidence of an offensive attitude and use of language that is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. We sincerely regret that the situation arose and are troubled that Mr. Kenchi’s termination process may have been tainted by unacceptable attitudes. In lieu of these findings, Hanes brands took decisive disciplinary steps, including the termination of a supervisor, and made Mr. Kenchi an unconditional offer of employment to return to the company."
