    While third parties may construe that the person who lost a job for the noted reasons, the person who lost their job, if they are certain they were in the right, so to speak, should not feel any chagrin. If, on the other hand, the job-loser knows what they did was wrong, well, then yes, they likely feel embarrassed, though it's not often clear whether they feel so due to having lost their job or whether they feel so due to having acted on wrongheaded notions and thereby suffered the consequences of having done so. It's not uncommon for people of dubious character or acumen to be (or attest to being) embarrassed about the wrong things and/or for the wrong reasons.

    Your post does not offer sufficient context to support your generalization.

    You know what I mean?

    Not entirely.

    In fairness its been a couple weeks since "the incident" and I have not heard any rwcist remarks personally. Now I did skip a Thanksgiving event where there were sure to be some because I didn't feel like being quiet or starting a fight. Not sure if that counts.

    If you go looking for racism, I'm sure you'll find it.

    Your statement is true. Inviting Uncle Danny over is a sure way to find it too lol.

    They are hoping you are on their team. And they are finding out. This is how you find out who is an ally and who is not: friend or foe.

    The country is splitting down the middle into two groups: people who think all the black-Muslim-Hispanic crime is just fine and those who don't think it's fine at all.

    Choose your side.

    Sure. Things are changing rapidly as the country devolves toward --- whatever will happen: civil war, putsch, coup d'état. People have to know what side you are on, so they say things and then we all know.

    If you are on the left but are white, you may change once the violence starts.
