PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon county has agreed to pay $100,000 to a black employee who sued alleging she was harassed after asking that a Blue Lives Matter flag not be displayed in the office.
Karimah Guion-Pledgure said in her January lawsuit against Multnomah County that the flag demeans the Black Lives Matter movement, The Oregonian/Oregon Live reported Saturday. She said she was harassed by others in the office after she and other black co-workers complained
Holy bullshit! You know this never happened, but hang on it gets better.
Guion-Pledgure’s lawsuit said the Blue Lives Matter movement “co-opts” the Black Lives Matter movement and “repurposes it to shift focus to law enforcement — a chosen profession, not a racial identity — and thus denigrates, dilutes, and demeans the purpose of the Black Lives Matter movement.”
True, it is a chosen profession, and you just gave us your answer. If you look at it that way, it means you think all police are racist and out to get you. Even the officers who are black.
After the probation officer’s flag had been on the wall for more than six months, Guion-Pledgure erected an “equity wall” that displayed photos of minorities killed by police, the suit stated.
Whoa, she is a probation officer, who works in law enforcement, yet doesn’t like cops? Err, sorry, she is offended by their lives having matter.
Managers told her to take down the photos, the lawsuit says, but she refused because the Blue Lives Matter flag remained.
That same day, Guion-Pledgure found two sticky notes affixed to her equity wall reading “Thanks a lot” and “Bitch,” according to the lawsuit.
Guion-Pledgure alleged that her supervisor in the Department of Community Justice didn’t require the flag to be taken down and the conflict caused her extreme stress and health issues.
Well, bitch, they are right. And no way in hell you had a health problem over a flag. It was all in your head, literally.
As part of the agreement, Guion-Pledgure had to resign by Friday but can reapply for a county job.
“She’s disappointed that she has to leave there and that they couldn’t make it a safe and welcoming work environment,” said her attorney, Ashlee Albies. “They say they’re working on that, and we hope they really are.”
Reapply, I’m sure she will get that job back no problem. It goes on to state she want $420,000. It seems that her fraud was pretty easy to see through. If anyone in the case was the victim it was the guy with the flag. But in reality, she got nothing. Do they math $100,000 is what maybe a year or so salary and benefits. Her lawyer takes his cut and she really gets nothing but a ” do not rehire” on her employment records.
The money will run out, but the internet is forever. Your failed get rich quick scheme will be there anytime someone googles you. Good luck with that.
