To be fair, I'm a bit boggled by the decision to fire him.  I can only assume some of those FF's were just too upset and told their captain they wouldn't be able to work with the new guy.

How in the world could they have believed it was intentional?  It's sooo f*cking hard to land a FF job, the last thing the new kid would want to do is offend his new employer or otherwise jeopardize his new gig as super hero.

It MUST have been unintentional.  Just who did he think would be amused by it?  The 10% FF's that weren't African American?  Nah, he would have likely assumed they would have sided with their coworkers and friends and toss the new guy under the bus, as happened. 

Poor kid is my thought.  He just didn't think that one through.

ANY IDIOT that goes to a new job where 90% of the workers are black & brings a watermelon, as a gift, is too stupid to be in a position of responsibility, especially where everyone has to trust that fellow workers have their backs in life & death situations.

Excellent point really,he was immensely stupid, but you can still feel sorry for him, perhaps even more so.

Really this kid is sufferring in a bed we've made for him.  Our forefathers laid the ground work for this moment in history by creating the very stereotypes we'd like to now avoid. 

If the "white man" didn't treat other humans so horribly, there'd be no horrible stereotypes for this kid to run afoul of.  America deserves more of this quite frankly.

I had to use Wikipedia on this one.


Fascinating.
