Tania Hernandez's insight:

Wow this is messed up but this can happen on any social network not just dating sites. This has happened many times on Facebook where people steal others photos and use them to create fake profiles. I don't think this was a good lawsuit because this can happen in any site.

Blind Man's Guide Dog Gets Him Booted Off Flight

Blind Man's Guide Dog Gets Him Booted Off Flight | Lawsuit airs double-standard myths of the n-word | Scoop.it
A U.S. Airways flight attendant removed a blind man from a plane after a dispute about his guide dog. The airline then canceled the flight.

Tania Hernandez's insight:

Rizzi has all the right to get upset and should have never been thrown off the plane along with his guide dog because he is a blind man and deserves to have his guide dog there with him. If the dog is properly trained and has been on a plane with him before then I don't see how the dog could've been moving around bothering other passengers like the flight attendant said. I think the flight attendant was being very rude and not making the proper accomodations for this disabled man. If some of the other passengers were shocked by the way this flight attendant treated this poor blind man then she definitely must've been rude and this is not the way a flight attendant should treat her passengers especially not someone who is blind.

Seriously????

Tré Dunbar's comment, November 17, 2013 6:05 PM
I can not say that I am surprised by the actions of the flight attendant or the airline. Of course I know that there are two sides to every story, or in this case 35+ sides. However, I am finding more and more that employees of airlines are in the career for the perks. Many of them care nothing about customer service. On a recent flight, I saw a flight attendant snap at a passenger to get her attention during snack service rather than addressing her. Absolutely sad.

What gets me about this article is that if the dog was moving around a little( which it was told that it was not) how could the flight attendant not understand that the man needs his dog. At the same time I am so disappointed at the U.S airway flight attendant, I am pleased that others who purchased their plane ticket would escort themselves to join Rizzi. It also shows who was telling the truth in the case as all those passengers were there with Rizzi and not sitting on the flight. No matter where we go we will come across people like this flight attendant and it is just sad the outcome of this one.

Words as evidence of discrimination.

Tania Hernandez's curator insight, September 9, 2013 3:31 PM

I agree that the term "nigger" shouldn't be used at all in the work place or anywhere. I know that amongst friends, they call each other the n word all the time and it is like nothing to do them. For them it is a joke and it is harmless but I personally don't like it. I don't think that black people should call each other the n word and it be okay. I don't think anyone should use this word period. Any black person can take it offensively whether it is coming from another black person or from a white person. I am glad Brandi Johnson recorded her manager calling her the n word and in the way that he used it and was able to file a lawsuit for it. I hope that he learned his lesson and will never call anyone the n word again in the work place.

Great, Now We Have To Worry About Black Widow Spiders Hiding In Grapes | Lawsuit airs double-standard myths of the n-word | Scoop.it

Tania Hernandez's insight:

Oh my God! This is scary. I usually just wash my grapes and eat them without fully inspecting them which is what most of us do, I am sure but now after reading this article, I will definitely look more closely. Good thing is that we usually have green grapes at my house so its easier to see if something weird is on them rather than dark grapes.
