A Detroit firefighter was fired before he officially began his first day on the job for bringing a watermelon to work.
Robert Pattison, 41, introduced himself to his fellow firefighters at Engine 55 at the corner of Joy and Southfield in Detroit by bringing a welcome gift, WJBK reported.
Second Battalion Chief Shawn McCarty calls this welcome gift “a tradition” for Engine 55’s firefighters.
“It’s not mandatory, it’s voluntary,” he said. “You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in.”
Pattison, who was a probationary firefighter, decided to stand out from the crowd and bring a watermelon with a pink bow on top.
Some black firefighters were reportedly offended by Pattison’s gesture since 90 percent of the firefighters at Engine 55 are black.
- Thanks liberals. Now, even food is racist.
Sometimes it seems like social justice warriors have run out of things to be offended about. Case in point, food is now considered racist.
- Oberlin College Students: Cafeteria Food Is Racist
University dining halls aren’t exactly famous for serving gourmet dishes, but Oberlin students say their meals aren’t merely bad—they are racially inauthentic, and thus, a form of microaggression.
- A lot of Instagram-loving foodies are perpetuating racist stereotypes about ethnic dishes
Hold up before you snap a photo of that pho: Your latest food-inspired Instagram post might be a little bit racist.
- ‘Pioneer Woman’ Under Fire For Racist Segment About Asian Wings
Ree Drummond, star of the Food Network series “The Pioneer Woman,” is coming under fire for a segment that strikes many people as racist and insulting to Asians.
The questionable segment was filmed in 2012 and shows Drummond playing a “trick” on her family by serving them a batch of “Asian hot wings” instead of the Buffalo-style they’re expecting.
- Toddlers who dislike spicy food ‘racist’
The National Children’s Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.
This could include a child of as young as three who says “yuk” in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

Is threatening to kill anyone who goes into his neighborhood, or burn down the houses of people holding a candlelight vigil considered… ‘problematic’?
This kid has officially lost his ever-loving mind.
It’s really bad to hate people based on the color of your skin, right?
Isn’t that something we all agreed on after Charlottesville?
So does this kind of talk get a free pass?

What is planned?
Antifa factions nationwide plan to deface and destroy statues of Christopher Columbus on Monday, the day Americans nationwide will celebrate the Italian navigator who was the first European explorer to discover the Americas.
In September, a New York City-based radical anarchist group known as “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement” called on Antifa groups nationwide to participate in “Deface Columbus Day,” where anarchists plan to “decorate” their local neighborhoods. RAM is an “extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and for “the abolition of gender,” according to Far Left Watch.
REAL RACISM: BlackLivesMatter Leader Calls for Genocide of White People…
By Team Crowder | 13 Feb 2017
Yusra Khogali, a Canadian Black Lives Matter leader, is a real piece of work. And by that I mean she’s a racist stinkpot with the IQ of a two-by-four. We’ve written about Khogali at least once before. You may have spotted her in the news a while back, when she tweeted out a ‘prayer to Allah,’ asking him to keep her from killing white people. #LittleMuslimThings
Well, Yusra just made the news again. This time for calling white people subhuman and talking about wiping them out. No joke…
- All That Kneeling Ignores the Real Cause of Soaring Black Homicides
The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 on Monday, and the data flies in the face of the rhetoric that professional athletes rehearsed in revived Black Lives Matter protests over the weekend.
Nearly 900 additional blacks were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide-victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population.
- Video: Screaming Woman From PTSD Service Dog Video Pulls the Race Card…
Remember that unhinged crazy person who blew her top over a veteran’s PTSD service dog in a restaurant? Well, she saw fit to produce a follow-up video. As you’d expect, she’s pulling the race card.
- Racist Black Lives Matters Thugs Trash St. Louis Library
Destroying libraries? Sure. This is what the left supports.
While the media keeps lying that the St. Louis race riots are “peaceful protests” (as it has been doing in response to every black nationalist race riot since Ferguson), here’s what the left’s racist black nationalist thugs are actually up to.

- Anti-American Anthem Singer Raises Black Power Fist On Field – BAD Move With Who Was Over His Shoulder
After over 200 players around the National Football League spit on our faces and took a knee during the National Anthem on Sunday following President Donald Trump’s common sense comments regarding the anti-American protesters in the NFL, it seems more than just players decided to get in on the publicity stunt by disrespecting our flag, nation, and her people during the Lions vs Falcons game in the cesspool that is Detroit, Michigan.
- Fury at white sorority sisters who sang along to Kanye West’s N-word lyric
A University of New Hampshire sorority is facing backlash after some of its white members were filmed shouting the n-word as they sang along to a Kanye West song.
- Cornell Black Student Group Complains: Too many Africans
You read that right. So-called “African-Americans” at Cornell complained about Africans. This came in the form of a letter from “Black Students United” to school administrators.
- UN DEMANDS America Pay Black People. For… Slavery?!
Remember the UN? I know, I know, it’s been a while since they were relevant. If they ever were. In case you’re unfamiliar, they’re a conglomerate of holier than thou garbage cans. They tell the world what we should be doing (see GAUNTLET THROWN: Netanyahu Calls UN a ‘Global Moral Farce’…). And it usually involves butt loads of cash, because “world peace” is super duper expensive and stuff.
Their latest command? The United States needs to pony up and pay black people reparations. Because reasons…
- Flashback: NFL Players Threatened With Fines For Wearing Patriotic Cleats on 9/11
Social media was set ablaze after President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).
The NFL and the left are all of a sudden supporters of the 1st Amendment. They keep claiming that the NFL players have the First Amendment right to protest the national anthem if they so wish. Okay, great, and the consumers have a right to boycott.
Interestingly, the NFL threatened players with fines for wearing patriotic cleats on 9/11 in 2016. Why does Goodell have so much contempt for American patriotism?

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: college is filled with walking butt gaskets. It’s low on the list of great investments right now (read Dear High School Students: Don’t Go to College. No Seriously…). After all, no need to pay to be surrounded by SJW craziness when you can join us as we laugh at them for free. Let the giggle fits commence…
Welcome to UW-Madison. Or, welcome back. Crowderheads have been here before (see Univ. of Wisconsin Offers Class on ‘Problem of Whiteness’ and University of Wisconsin Creates Absurd New List of ‘Racist Microaggressions’). When it comes to act of moronic political correctness, ’tis a frequent offender. Today we bring you the latest in, “As Religious Freedom Turns.” UW-Madison students seem to think some religious deserve rights, while others not so much.
People Are Calling For A Total Ban On Cotton Because — You Guessed It — Racism
By Jenna Green | 18 Sep 2017
A woman in Texas berated Hobby Lobby last week for selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.
Daniell Rider posted her complaint to the craft store’s Facebook page:
There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.
Daniell Rider, then received backlash for her sensitivity and responded to her critics:
All those who are offended by cotton being a decoration need to quit buying any product made of cotton!
Below is my response to this race-baiter ~Angel
The following is a short list of products that are made with cotton or cotton/synthetic fabric blends:
- Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, and Hoodies (I suppose one could always go with fleece)
- Bandanas (Antifa loons are gonna have to find something else to cover their cowardly faces with)
- Denim (I am picturing protesters wearing polyester pants LOL)
- Terrycloth (Towels, bath robes)
- Sheets and Pillowcases (Most use cotton or cotton blend)
- Canvas (Some is made using *gasp* cotton, some using linen)
- Flannel (Some flannel is made using wool or synthetic fiber but a lot is made using cotton)
- Underwear (For those of you who like the saggy pants look this includes boxer shorts)
- Coffee filters
- Fishing nets
- Tampons and Sanitary Pads (I suppose women can start using menstrual cups)
- Bandaids and Gauze
- Elastic bandages
- Disposable diapers
- Cloth diapers
- Cotton seeds are delinted by a similar process to ginning. Some linter is used to make candle wicks, string, cotton balls, cotton batting, paper, and cellulose products such as rayon, plastics, photographic film, and cellophane.
- Cottonseed oil is used in some margarines, salad dressings, cosmetics, soap, candles, water proofing agents
- Q-tips and Cotton Balls
- Tires (Use of cotton in tires is limited – used mostly as a processing aid now)
Did you know that cotton remained a key crop in the Southern economy after emancipation and the end of the Civil War in 1865. Across the South, sharecropping evolved, in which landless black and white farmers worked land owned by others in return for a share of the profits. Some farmers rented the land and bore the production costs themselves.
And did you know that China and India are the two biggest cotton producers in the world? Also on the list: United States, Pakistan, Turkey, Australia, and Mexico.
And did you also know that slavery – yes slavery – is alive and well in the Middle East? Are you offended by THAT?
‘It’s nasty, it’s disgusting to me’: Angry woman abuses military veteran after he brought his PTSD dog inside restaurant
By Rod Ardehali | 19 Sep 2017
Shocking footage captures the moment a woman rages at a military veteran after he brought his PTSD dog inside restaurant.
Workers and diners queued up to defend the serviceman who remained silent during the unpleasant verbal onslaught.
Holding the lead, the veteran stands near his dog, which appears to be a Great Dane mix with an official military coat wrapped around its body. The animals help victims of serious injury or accident feel safe during potentially difficult social situations.
