A pox on both their houses.
Nice to see the lefties get a little of their own medicine.
Whites, males hardest hit.
,,, PETA has managed to use A&F as a doormat recently. What a joke.
So if a "Diversity Specialists" comes to your door, don't let them in, but do see them safely off the property, making sure they don't trip.
How proud they must be!
abercrombie and fitch is retarded. They used to have nice clothes but now they look like clothes worn by hookers after getting in a 3 hour street fight with each other (short short tatty skirts, et al.)
"Whites, males hardest hit."
Not at all. White males are now forming lines to apply for jobs as Hooters wai.. hoste... Umm.... anyway, in San Francisco.
This suit is not good news no matter who it happens too. This is another racial shakedown. The next company could be yours or the one you work for. A victory like this will only embolden the Jessie Jackson types.
That was my immediate thought when I saw it mentioned at the bottom of the Fox scroll earlier this evening.
As much as I despise Abercrombie and Fitch, if they want to aim their sales model at white suburbanite preppies and yuppies who buy their overpriced crap, it's their business. I don't see anybody suing FUBU for catering its equally ugly and equally overpriced crap to inner city blacks, so why not Abercrombie?
$40 million dollars to (non-) victim whiners, and I have to go to work tomorrow like a normal person. What crap.
Liberalism, the ACLU, etc -- true enemies.
Please: buy Wrangler.
If they had only paid Jesse Jackson a small 'consulting' fee this never would have happened.
White males need not apply, I'm sure.
