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.

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

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?
‘Change’? Doesn’t he really mean ‘destroy’?

Former President Barack Obama will remain on the sidelines no longer.
Obama will host a global summit this fall in Chicago aimed at inspiring and empowering people to “change the world.”
Wait a minute … Didn’t his slogan involve the word ‘change’ and didn’t he have eight full years to accomplish said change?
During his farewell address, Obama even said ‘mission accomplished.’

When Depp, star of such films as Black Mass and The Rum Diary, introduced a film on Thursday at “Cinemageddon,” a film stage at England’s famous Glastonbury Festival, he turned his attention across the Atlantic to the current occupant of the White House.
According to the Daily Telegraph, he told the crowd, “I think [Donald] Trump needs help. There are a lot of dark places he could go.”
He then added, “I’m not insinuating anything – by the way, this will be in the press and it will be horrible – but when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
Video: Leftist Douchebag Trashes American Flags at September 11th Memorial…

We’ve often written about craptastic leftist crapholes who do crappy things (read Leftist Professor Sacked After Claiming Texans Deserved Hurricane Harvey and ‘Tolerant’ Liberals Threaten to Burn Alive Electoral College Voter and Family). Pardon all the crap talk, but the situation warrants it. It’s rarely a surprise when leftists act a fool. This guy here takes the crap-covered cake for biggest douchelord of the decade, inviting several morons of the past to hold his pumpkin spiced lager.
He took it upon himself to trash a September 11th memorial. Yes, really.

We all know how much Obamacare is majorly sucking right now. Heck, even Billiam and his wife know it (see Bill Clinton Doubles Down, Reminds Voters How Much ObamaCare Sucks). Especially since certain promisers failed to repeal the mess as promised. Stings a little extra. Well this new report from the Congressional Budget Office cements in that suckage.
Obamacare premiums are projected to be on the rise once again:

Rapper XXXTentacion is under fire after releasing a disturbing music video featuring a Caucasian boy being lynched on a stage as an African-American boy looks on.
The video “Look At Me!” debuted on Tuesday and features imagery depicting police brutality, violent protests, and the 19-year-old Florida-based rapper placing a white child’s head in a noose on stage in front of a crowded theater and then hoisting him up into the air.
The child’s feet are shown dangling and twitching and then they suddenly stop.
