Let's give some slack to those Zoom employees.

They thought they were on mute.

So they only discussed something between themselves that other people watching the program were also silently or openly snickering about.

Most people, of course, would never go out of their way to ridicule a foreign accent.

But it is just human to be amused or annoyed by an accent that is so different from the ordinary.
Yeah, no, they weren't Zoom employees.
From the OP source: (If you're going to call yourself "Parser" try reading.. "FFS" as Disir often exclaims):
"Make no mistake, these dysfunctions are deeply ingrained in our county and in our country, racism has become a public health crisis," Navarro added. "What hurt was that these employees are part of our team, charged with working daily with a diverse team of Council members and staff on initiatives that require a sensitivity to and respect for racial and ethnic differences.
They worked for Montgomery County Media who later apologized for their shitty behavior.

The liberal national anthem is kumbaya and it's sung while barefoot on the sand of an island drinking an IPA. Or not at all.
The left is fully invested in packing America with as many foreigners as possible
....
Yeah, yeah, we know how much people who don't look exactly like your mommy scare you. Hasn't that spine you ordered online arrived in the mail yet?

The difference being that I was born in America and have the right of citizenship that shoeless migrants from Central America do not

As a citizen its my duty to preserve the great nation that our forefathers gave us

While discussing racial disparities amid the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, a Latina councilmember in Maryland was interrupted by two people — as they giggled and mocked her accent.

"I love how her accent comes out and pronounces words like she thinks they're pronounced," one person said, specifically calling out the way Navarro pronounced the words "represent" and "hologram."

....Chuckling, another responded, "I heard 'hologram,' and I was like, 'That's kind of interesting.'"

"So cute," the first replied, still laughing.

WTF is wrong with people? Really.
Wasn't racial, they were making fun of her accent. An old American tradition. :biggrin:

When I moved to my current state of residence people made fun of my accent too.

BFD.
I was asked in York if I had a London accent; I'm from Oz.

America doesn't need any more Asian trannies, so go back home to Riceland.
Unko may be a tad zany at times but he's OK in my book. Lately though? Some bee in his bonnet maybe????

UncleTard has always had a hot poker up his ass. And he rarely, if ever, contributes anything to a thread other than trolling.

That's just silly. The unvetted masses entering the US is a good thing? I am all for the Australian immigration policy.

He’s very thin skinned

if someone disagrees with him on an issue - in this case immigration - he attacks them personally

You were right about one part: You are clearly afraid.
