Being Quiet is Racist

And this required going up to the DE Supreme Court.

The ruling overturned a judgment that would have awarded 23 black theatergoers $1,500 for being told to be quiet in a way seen by some to be racially charged, according to the report.
The outrage began one night in October 2007 when David Stewart, the theater’s white manager, told the crowd to silence cell phones before the screening.

One patron followed Stewart out of the theater and said his instructions did not sit well with some in the audience.

Juana Fuentes-Bowles, then the director of Delaware’s Human Relations Division, was in the audience and stood up and told the crowd that his remarks were racist.


People are stupid.

That card is getting so dog-eared and tattered that it needs retired.

Well, that's not quite how Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it ;-) . . .
