A man was fired from his company after a now-viral video captured an altercation in which the man called the police on a black woman because he wanted her to verify that she had access to a neighborhood pool.
“We are aware of a terrible incident involving the actions of one of our employees outside the workplace,” Sonoco, a global packaging solutions supplier, said in a statement.
“The well-documented incident, which involves activities at a neighborhood pool over the 4th of July, does not reflect the core values of our Company, and the employee involved is no longer employed by the company in any respect.”

Damn, what is wrong with my fellow white people?
Don’t you know the days of casual racism are coming to an end?
First off, you should not be a racist in god damn 2018, because by now we should have evolved past all of that bullshit.
But second, if you see somebody filming you being a racist, you need to shut that whole thing down and start apologizing.
If you are filmed doing your impression of a plantation owner in “Django” that is guaranteed to come back and bite you in your lily white ass.
It’s called “Black Twitter” and it is taking down racists at a rather significant clip.
