Skip to comments.Bank Employees Accused Of Being Racist For Working On MLK Day [Racists!!]
Posted on 01/16/2012 2:55:39 PM PST by upchuck
After a Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance at Burlingtons City Hall Contois Auditorium Monday, about a dozen demonstrators marched on the TD Bank branch just down the street to protest the banks opening on the holiday.
The marchers briefly gathered in front of the bank, then tried to enter. Moments after the group arrived, Patrick Brown, director of the Burlington Multicultural Resource Center, said he would hand leaflets to bank tellers protesting the banks hours Monday. The leaflet read: Dear TD Bank, you are defying the King holiday. Shame, Shame, Shame. This is a racist act. Shame, Shame, Shame.
More info at the Burlington Free Press which can't be posted on FR, their loss.
Time to lock and load!!

Funny how they chose a bank. I din’t see any business in my area closed for Martin Luther King Day. Grocery stores, hardware stores, home stores, restaurants, etc. all open normal hours.
It is because of things like this I don’t believe anyone when they pull the race card.
When we eat chicken, my wife doesn’t like the dark meat. I think it means she’s racist. ;)
Wonder if they picketed KFC
Morons...these race whores see racism everywhere, enough already!
TD Bank is our bank. Like them and like them more now.
Martin Luther King lived in America.
These assclowns think they live in North Korea or Cuba...
It’s an election year, anything and everything is potentially racist. Cue Jesse Jackson.
I wonder how much these federal holidays cost us. Gotta figure, there are a lot of federal employees getting the day off with pay and they’ve made sure they’re all on Monday so they do get the day off.
The day is fast approaching where there will be a black version of “The Red Guards.”
TD Bank took over my local bank last year. At the time it irked me. Big bank takeover of small banks. Corporatism, cronyism, all that stuff, yada yada yada.
Well, I have appreciated the fact that they have more open hours - Saturdays for instance, and some holidays. Like today. And now that I know the NAACP has marched on a TD Bank for being open on MLK Day, I believe I will keep my account there. Not because I disrespect MLK. While I may not have agreed with his ideology as a whole, his accomplishments to bring true liberty to Black Americans is inarguable. But to tick off the NAACP for besmerching his memory by abusing it to bully businesses and other races and communities to submit to their agenda.
No, NAACP, we don’t bow to you. Thank you, TD Bank for setting a standard. I hope the way YOU honor Dr. King’s memory catches on, and supplants the way the NAACP SHAMES it.
and if bank doesn’t grant a home lone they’re redlining and if they give a loan to someone without the means to repay, they’re predatory lenders.
does that about cover it?
In Michigan today, Al Sharpton was protesting our “racist” emergency financial manager law outside Governor Snyder’s house.
Amen, patriot preacher.
I've posted this in another thread and I think it merits another mention here.
As a young, idealistic (and utterly naive) college student in the early 1960's, I was actually a card-carrying, dues-paying member of the NAACP. For several months, I actually believed in that organization. Reality finally set in as I learned more about it from within the belly of the beast. It was a Communist outfit from the very top to the bottom. I ultimately transferred to a Conservative Christian college and fled from my dalliance with the NAACP, returning to my roots and actively campaigned and voted for AuH20 in the 1964 race. I will forever regret supporting the utterly racist, totally corrupt NAACP during my brief era of youthful ignorance.
How did he get a holiday to start with and a Mao statue on the mall and a whole damn black month.
TD Bank? That’s Toronto Dominion Bank, a CANADIAN bank you clowns and a business. Almost every company here in L.A. is open except for the union-controlled post office and library.
I know what I would have said to them had I been a teller and I guarantee you it wouldn’t have been PC and would have gotten me fired, but I would have enjoyed myself saying it.
To paraphrase famed bank robber Willie Sutton, they choose a bank because that’s where the money is. It’s ALL about the Benjamins with these “activists.”
Sitting at my desk, working, at the bank I work for here in Alabama. The State of Alabama observes MLK’s birthday AND Robert E. Lee’s birthday on the same day.
We fear that if we open on MLK’s birthday, someone will accuse us of celebrating Robert E. Lee’s birthday. ;)
All those NBA players racist for working today?
You and I brother! I would have also remineded them that it’s correctly called Washingtn’s Birthday, not the PC MLK Day.
Rush talked about this very thing this morning. He said he will be called a racist because he worked today.
MLK has his own day?
I worked today and made $120 dollars (before MLK taxes).
the word racism was devised to destroy this country, and it is.
Yep! Unfortunately, Americans no longer have the inner strength.
Barry Goldwater was a member of the NAACP, at least for a time.
Today is Albert Pujols' birthday though.
Wait til they move the 4th of July to the first Monday of July.
Isnt Lincoln’s birday Feb 12 and Washington’s Feb 22? Those are the celebrations we recognize.
The MAN is forcing them to.
The one that makes me puke is when they interview folks in the 'hood who proclaim "America has had many Presidents but only one King".
Most of the blacks in our area are at the unrelenting and crashingly boring MLK Luncheons. God protect me from ever having to attend again.
Did you know that over the years farmers have been breeding turkeys to have more white meat? How racist can you get! Boycott Butterball. No dark meat, no peace!
The employees were paid time and half overtime.
what business is it of theirs if a banks wants to be open on that day?
This just lends credence to the marxist label of mlk.
Whites must abandon their racist beliefs and traditions and adopt Black values.
It is demanded that they worship at the alters of the Black Affirmative Action Gods.
Failure to comply will doom them to carry the mark of the racist for eternity, or until they are successfully reprogrammed in government schools and camps.
No, today IS MLK Day. The holiday now known unofficially as “Presidents Day” and officially GW’s Birthday, is celebrated on the third Monday of February. GW’s actual birthday was 2/22.
When I was a kid in school we got off for both Lincoln’s Birthday (2/12) and Washington’s Birthday (2/22). I believe Lincoln’s Birthday was forfeited as a federal holiday when they instituted MLK Day. Now, the only federal holidays NOT celebrated on a given Monday are Independence Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
MLK had a dream.
We can dream too.

In other words, FR could go away if the expenses for this quarter are not met.

Our office was open today but we closed for Lee/Jackson Day.
I suppose the “Burlington Multicultural Resource Center” would be doubly opposed to that, handing out twelve “shames” instead of a measly six.
What is the percentage of black people in Vermont? Vermont must be Racist!!!
I live here. It sucks being surrounded by liberals but the crime rate is very low and I can buy a gun any day of the week with zero paperwork...
Stay east and north of Marshfield and things aren’t too bad.
