    Uppity field negro educator (with African name) sues Walmart for listing occupation on fishing license as toilet cleaner
Gilbert KalondeBOZEMAN, Mont. - A Montana State University professor is suing Wal-Mart for libel after he says an employee at the Bozeman store listed his occupation on a fishing license as a "toilet cleaner." Gilbert Kalonde, assistant professor of technology education at MSU, filed the suit this past week in Gallatin County District Court. Kalonde is seeking unspecified damages. Reports say that Wal-Mart did not immediately respond to a request for comment. According to the complaint, Kalonde bought a state fishing license in April 2015, showing the Wal-Mart employee identification of his employment at MSU. But the Wal-Mart employee entered "clean toilets" into the state database as Kalonde's occupation. The suit contends Wal-Mart exposed Kalonde to "hatred, contempt, ridicule" through the incident. - (Bias lawsuits)

    Obama bullied bank to pay racial settlement without proof: report
ObamaNewly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation. So far, Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has reached more than $220 million in settlements with several auto lenders since the agency launched its anti-discrimination crusade against the industry in 2013. Several other banks are under active investigation. That’s despite the fact that the CFPB had no actual complaints of racial discrimination — it was all just based on half-baked statistics. - (Bias lawsuits)

  • Judge Throws Out Claim of 'Racist' Brutality on Fellow (Black Hispanic) Officer
    MIAMI (AP) - A well-traveled lawsuit claiming a racist police officer purposely ran over a plainclothes detective with his own department has been dismissed by a federal judge after once producing a $5.7 million jury award. U.S. District Judge James Lawrence King threw out the suit against Miami-Dade County. He noted "compelling evidence" against Sgt. William Alsbury but said the county couldn't anticipate racially motivated intent when Alsbury used his patrol car to run down Detective Michael Perez. "While it might be unwise policy to permit racists to serve as county officers, (Perez) has not presented evidence that a 'plainly obvious consequence' of employing Alsbury would be the intentional, unlawful use of force against African-Americans." Perez, who is black, was not in uniform when he was chasing a Radio Shack robbery suspect on foot in 1995. Alsbury, who said he thought Perez was a suspect, claimed he hit the detective when he lost control of his car on wet grass.

"I had a Dream" - retiring a millionaire from a racial bias lawsuit.
I have a dream. I yearn to become a member of a ``protected class.''
by Howie Carr in the Boston Herald
"I want to be a victim too. I'm tired of working. And even though I was born here and I'm not the politically correct color, religion or gender, I demand the same free ride everybody else is getting.
It's the American way."

 * Lawyers Now Have Control of Nation Once Ruled by Law
   Lawyers, as a rule, never tilled a field, repaired an automobile, built a product, managed a 
   profit-and-loss business, planned a manufacturing facility or, generally speaking, added 
   anything of tangible value to the gross national product.

 * There are some wrongs that cannot be paid for in dollars.
    They must either be paid in blood or not at all. 
    Naturally, in our effeminate country, people love the lawsuit
    as much as they love the lottery and the slot machine, and
    they abhor and fear the idea of real justice. Money has
    become the ultimate corrupter of Americans, more
    powerful than sex or drugs. - Charley Reese Commentary
