Detroit Firefighter Fired for Bringing ‘Racially Insensitive’ Watermelon to Work

Recommended Posts

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.

I can clearly see that he had no intention but this just goes to show how far into stupid we are. Everyone believes everyone else is attacking them. No one can just be who they are anymore without the nagging of thought police because someone took something is an offensive manner!

It's less a status of being above you and more so a role of your protector. Kings should protect their people. I guess it depends on your perspective. My intentions are honorable. After all. Virtues are all we have. Without them we are animals.

Its really FAKE-PC.  The mind programmers have been at this for decades trying to convince all that male is female, old is young, the Sun is the Moon, evil is good, etc.  Seems the insanity is a Force, but don't let that Force be with you.

You should let the force be with you. We're the last jedi's if anything. Stay away from the sith lords though. They corrupt like no other.

As a Protector should be!    Let the Virtues be increased.

Denn wer ist unsre Hoffnung oder Freude oder Krone des Ruhms? Seid nicht auch ihr es vor unserm HERRN Jesus Christus zu seiner Zukunft? (1Th 2:19 GLB)

-

For who is our hope or joy, or crown of glory? Are not you also present to us before our Lord Jesus Christ for His future?

Sounds a bit extreme.  If he had also brought some RC Cola, moon-pies and a bucket of KFC, then we might have a "situation".  :nodl:
