Pathetically, identity politics has a strong enough hold on the public conscience to provide those with hypersensitive ethnicity a portable wedge capable of instant deployment, even when no "issue" exists. All that REALLY matters is how the poor poor oppressed feel about the way they are treated by random humans.

Society is insane for fostering this victim mentality.
Unfortunately racism is thriving in the US. Some people just refuse to acknowledge it. Also unfortunate there are those that use it to their benefit. Identity politics plays a strong role in the assumptions one is willing to make about incidences such as this one where we don’t have all the information.
In a society where it has become important to identify the skin color of people in a bakery after closing, and, what passes for "journalism" these days, it is difficult, NEH, impossible not to make at least a few assumptions with a story like this.
Based on the available information, the bakery owner appears to have fired employees in effort to manage perceptions of the event. After all, there is much to fear when one gets on the bad side of a "professional equity activist".
Of course, if what was said to her was offensive and racial it is relevant to the situation and should be included in the story. There's no doubt assumptions will be made about this to fill in the gaps of missing details. Those assumptions are going to be based on biases.

If the owner doesn't feel the employees did anything wrong and doesn't want to lose them then he or she should keep them. What the owner said though doesn't say he or she feels they didn't do anything wrong so there is something else to this story that we aren't being told.

Wow he’s exactly right and completely misses the point all at the same time.
Sorry, I didn't realize that making my own point was missing his. A point you don't seem to be able to refute.

Some more news in racialist America (coining a new word for the race exploitation industry).

https://katu.com/news/local/portland-ba ... er-closing

"In one statement, "Back To Eden Bakery" says that according to its own surveillance video, a black woman named "Lillian", who is well known in the area as a "professional equity activist", entered at 9:06 p.m., after the bakery's closing time. Employees had also turned off the "Open" sign, but several customers (all white) who had already ordered were still inside. Two other white women who went to the bakery two minutes before "Lillian", and were also informed that the business was closed for the night.

The bakery says "Lillian" left the store briefly and began recording video."

"The bakery also says in the statement that the way the employees went about denying the woman service, "lacked sensitivity and understanding of the racial implications at work."

In the statement "Back To Eden" says the employees were fired because the woman and the "clamoring public" demanded they be fired.

In one statement, the bakery admitted that the employees did not necessarily do anything wrong, "this is more about how a black woman was made to feel" at the business."
After having given this some thought, and reflecting on the Chic-fil-a story, I agree with the store owner. The employees should be fired. Not for refusing service, but for not providing excellent customer service. They should have served everyone. If you don't want folks walking in the front door, lock it.
The incident could have served as a learning moment, but NO, the owners were forced into firing two people in order to appease a "clamoring public". Sadly, avoiding the wrath of social justice warriors is all too prevalent in modern society.
I think that the owners could have learned something out of this, but oh-no, they had to fire them because blacks have to be treated "special" in this crybaby world. Too bad the PC police is all over the place these days.

Again, based on the information provided in the article what happened is clear. The owner eve said it outright. The employees were sacrificed to appease blood lust of a "professional equity activist" and the "clamoring public" - because they demanded it.

Like I said, they made numerous statements. One of which you've cited and the others I've cited. They are not consistent with each other, which is why I said we're not being told the whole story.

"The bakery also says in the statement that the way the employees went about denying the woman service, "lacked sensitivity and understanding of the racial implications at work." The way they went about it? I'd like to know how they went about it.

"Admittedly we have had issues with staff trying to enforce our closing hours too firmly without being sensitive to the fact that that person came out of their way to support our business. Whatever their reason for denying you service is not acceptable and flies directly in the face of the experience we aim to provide our customers."

The way they went about it was not considering the damage a professional equity activist and a clamoring public reacting to a video of white people being served could do to the business. In other words, serve the activist regardless of circumstance.

If the owners aim to provide an excellent customer experience at all times, they should have trained the employees entrusted with conducting business in the owners absence to do so.

Having worked in retail in a younger day, I was trained that closing is closing. If you stay open to serve a late straggler or two, you run the risk of more appearing and running the payroll into overtime, so close up punctually. Period.

Of course, that was long before social justice warriors could stand outside videoing the injustice of white people who showed up before closing being served by racist employees working in a racist bakery.
