Skip to comments.Red Cross women accused of Racism for showing Patriotism
Posted on 10/29/2009 8:37:22 AM PDT by myfreepress
My mother works at the Red Cross, and she liked the Don't Tread On Me stickers I made. She decided to take a couple of them to work and show them to a couple of her co-workers. When she did, one of the African Americans at her job, stood up and started shouting and calling her a racist. He yelled "We love Obama and you are racist!" My mother has never had a racist bone in her body, she is a good women who works hard and just believes our Country is going down the wrong path, and is proud of her son for standing up against it.
The day after this incident, HR came in and asked her to show them the sticker. They said "You don't think this is racist?" She came over to my house yesterday in tears and told me she had to take the sticker off her car, and couldn't take any of them to her job. I was outraged and wanted her to put the stickers all over her car and park next to this guy tomorrow. She is worried she will lose her job. Since she is a single women and doesn't make much money, she fears standing up for her Freedom of Speech. What has this Country come to?
Please visit my site and post your comments. My mother follows my site and needs the encouragement. Thank you for your support

Sorry, but you appear to have joined FreeRepublic only to pimp your own blog.
She should have said: “Dude (bro’), it’s a free country, Don’t Try to Tread on ME!”
So if your mother gets canned are you going to support her?
No My mother watches my Blog and I would like her to read some encouraging comments.
Of Course I will support her. I will get the attorney and sue the hell out of the Red Cross
As helpful as the Red Cross tries to be, I’ve always thought it “interesting” that the prez of the Red Cross is paid around $450,000 per annum....kinda high for a “non-profit” wouldn’t you say?
That is what I told her!
Wow...how racist that Gadsden Flag is!!
Morons with no concept of History....Have your mother give them an outline of the history of the flag and it's significance and make them show her how it is racist.
...and the basis of your suit would be?
I hope things work out for your mom. It’s too bad that people have to see racisim in something totally meaning freedom.
I’ve seen some comments that perhaps you have an agenda for posting here. I doubt it but, there has been people in the past on the left who come here with an agenda attempting to promote the stereotype of conservatives displayed in the media. I believe here you will find intelligent, thinking people committed to perserving the freedoms our founding fathers expounded upon in the Constitution. We’re also kind of a fun bunch! So Welcome!
I showed her the Wiki yesterday, but she is fearful for her job, and I am not sure I want to push it since I would be responsible if she lost her job :(
Tell her to get herself a good attorney. Some will even do the case with no money up front. Carefully document everything (if this story really happened) and then sue them.
The “Red” Cross is and always was a shuyster org. I WILL NEVER DONATE MONEY AND/OR BLOOD TO THESE PEOPLE!
Infringing on her first amendment rights
That is what I was thinking, but my mom needs encouragement, hence the reason I mention to leave a comment or two so she will read them.
It's come to that now...don't you see that?
“Since she is a single women and doesn’t make much money, she fears standing up for her Freedom of Speech. What has this Country come to?”
Sorry, but the First Amendment does not cover your mother’s freedom of speech at her place of work.
I would also like to add Dr. Mr. Lucky.
I made my contribution to FR yesterday! Not just here to PIMP MY BLOG thank you very much!
At the rate things are going, the Stars and Sripes will soon be a racist flag.
