The rebirth of blatant and public racism under Donald Trump’s watchful blind eye continues to flourish with the latest repulsive example coming out of UPS.

WSB-TV Atlanta reports that Gwendolyn Carder who worked as the human resources supervisor at a Georgia UPS facility has been fired for posting her story on Facebook in which she addressed a police officer being fired for hitting a Black suspect with his patrol car.

“Thugs deserve it. If a family member so be it. However, I do no have any thugs in my family that I am aware of. Seems to be people of color who are the problem.”

And just like that she was out of a job which she had held for 25 years. Think about that. For 25 years she kept her opinions to herself until an racist man with an orange hue hijacked the 2016 Presidential election and told everyone to hate whoever’s different from him and his ilk.

In a statement released UPS distanced themselves from Carder’s racist comments and reminded everyone they’re a company that prides itself on diversity.

“UPS has no tolerance for hate, bigotry or prejudice. The company embraces diversity and inclusion as one of its core values. The comments Ms. Carder shared in response to WSB-TV’s story do not reflect UPS’s values or culture.”

If only The White House would release such a statement.
