Receipts, receipts, we got em, quite literally. Here are four receipts which have gone public via internet in the recent past:
- “Ching” and “Chong” — That’s what Chick-Fil-A labelled two UC Irvine students in December 2011. The image was posted on the internet, blogged on tumblr, and the offending employee named Lia got fired amid much defensive PR fluff from Chick-Fil-A.
- “Lady Chinky Eyes” — That’s how Papa John’s in New York City referred to Minhee Cho in January 2012. Cho tweeted the receipt, prompting Papa John’s to post on apology on its Facebook page and terminate the offending employee.
- “Chinx” — That’s how Hooters in Fresh Meadows, Queens, described Kisuk Cha and his girlfriend when they ordered wings and shrimp there in September 2012. Cha sued. The employee resigned and as far as I know the lawsuit is ongoing.
- “Ching Chong Lee” — That’s what CVS in New Jersey named Hyun Jin Lee in February 2013. Following Cha’s example, Lee has filed a lawsuit. CVS says the employee will be “counseled and trained”.
They keep giving us these receipts and we’ll keep filing lawsuits. Let’s do this.
Always keep fighting.
One of Israel’s most repeated official claim during the latest war in Gaza was that Hamas was using Palestinian civilians as human shields. Now, several independent journalists, human rights organizations and the United Nations are accusing Israel of using Palestinian civilians as human shields.
72% of Palestinians killed in this offensive were civilians, according to the UN. About a third of the wounded children, will be forced to live with permanent disabilities. 1/3 of Gaza’s total population, over 520,000 people, have been displaced of whom 279,389 were taking shelter in 83 UN-run schools.
turns out a creampie isn’t a pastry and the internet is a disgusting place
My favorite thing to do is observe white people when they’re eating Indian food and you can visibly see the tears coming out of their eyes and I’m just like “yesss cry bitch cry that’s for colonizing my people how do u like that curry now bitch?”
please destroy the notion that democrats are the good guys because most of them are just as racist, misogynistic, queerphobic, transphobic, and imperialistic as their republican counterparts. this isn’t an issue that ends with party lines
"You shouldn’t be worried about equality, women can vote!" Ah yes now I can choose which straight white man can oppress me what a time to be alive
