    In 2008, before her ascent to Tea Party star (Texas-area regional division) anda failed run for Congress, Pierson worked for Sanofi-Aventis, a pharmaceutical company, marketing prescription drugs to doctors in the Dallas area. Two years later, she filed suit against the company, claiming that they “engaged in practices towards her which willfully discriminated against her on the basis of her race.” In her complaint, uncovered by Gawker, she demanded restitution for lost wages and “emotional pain” due to her treatment as a non-white person.

    Pierson, who is black, said a former manager spoke “down to her as if she were a child,” behavior she blamed on racial bias. She alleged said she was sabotaged by the company “by failing to provide her with advanced notice of periodic training tests and not granting her standard time out of the field to prepare and study,” which she said was typically afforded to white employees. According to a later filing, Pierson and her former employer (which denied her allegations) settled out of court, and the suit was dismissed.

    Multiple attempts to contact Pierson regarding the suit and whether or not racial discrimination is actually bad were unanswered.

    So are you saying Trump is racist because he hired a black woman who has faced adversity in her professional life, or are you now saying you support Trump based on the fact that he will hire black people who have overcome racism in their lives as spokespeople for his campaign?

    I'm saying one or all of the following:

    A. Trump is a fucking fraud for hiring a fucking fraud who preaches that people who play the race card and claim distrimination are assholes, while she herself played the race card when she was fired legally by an American freedom loving company.
    B. People who think Trump has any actual beliefs or ideals and is not a complete carnival fraud are tards.
    C. Trump's campaign is being run by grifters.

    So what you're saying is that you don't believe this woman's claims of racism solely because she's a Republican. Got it. No double standard there at all.

    Irrelevant to my point.

    If it is true she is a fraud for opposing discrimination against some but not all.

    if it is not true she is a fraud for being a grifter.

    She probably got fired for the same reasons as most people who claim racial discrimination - she's stupid, lazy, and wasn't capable of doing her job.

    :eek:

    You mean, a company would be willing to keep someone that they hired and invested time and money in, regardless of race, just because they're a good employee???

    She's like a yapping Chihuahua, but she sticks to her story no matter what the TV talking heads throw at her.

    Her lack of a chin, however, is disturbing.
