I learned a long time ago that racists just aren't very smart people.
"Just when Mars water really had everyone believing that mankind might be capable of making the next great leap in our evolution, some unimaginably stupid shit like this happens. The bro in the screengrab above, presumably a real actual person in the year 2015, decided to share a selfie with a black co-worker's young boy. This bro then accompanied the Facebook posting of this photo with some downright disgusting commentary:"
And then there was this from Mr. Roth's employer:
"This morning I was disgusted to learn that one of my former employees made several racially charged comments on his personal Facebook page. Even worse, the comments were directed toward the son of another employee.
It breaks my heart that Sydney and her adorable son Cayden were subjected to such hateful, ignorant and despicable behavior. Cayden visits my office almost every afternoon after daycare, he’s sat at my dinner table and I consider him a part of the PMG family.
The atrocious lies, slander and racism he and his mother have been forced to endure are wholly intolerable. Myself and the entire PMG family in no way condones this kind of behavior and would never willingly associate with anyone who does.
It has no place in the world.
PMG has terminated the employee responsible and will ensure that none of the businesses that we associate with will ever do business with him again."
Fortunately for him he will have some company while he cools his heels at home.
"Atlanta’s Conch Republic Grill announced on Friday that it had fired the commenter known as Emily Irene Red."
