I'm sorry Paul........and this isn't the first time for the chef.
I cannot, in good conscience, answer this type of question....valid or not. It is not thought provoking, it is crass and out of line. I'm sorry, but this is where I draw the line personally.
This is someone who is attempting to elicit a response for argument sake and is trying to suck you into a discussion that has no place in here as far as I am concerned.
We fought the Civil War 140 years ago, I don't see the point today.
IMHO, you have 20M+ businesses in the USA, you get one or two companies, no matter how big or how small, that does something really stupid and it makes big headlines especially dealing with discriminatory practices (and every business practices its own form of discrimination), they just cannot break the law. For example, I would very much doubt you would see a bald headed 50 year old male waiting tables in Hooters...and Hooters has the right to set their hiring practices basing it upon who they feel is the most qualified individual for their open positions.
His post wasn't about that.....it was directed at Blacks, Gays and Women and what his personal feelings are. Notice how many times he refers to his own "personal problems" with the aforementioned groups in the post. It is as obvious on the nose on your face that this wasn't meant to be educational. If you want to have an educational debate, I'm all in. This was not, it is wrong and has no place on this forum.
