Real World Manifestations of the Microaggressions™ Kulchah


Remember the Napa Whine Train Incident? Buncha raucous gals got kicked off for disturbing the other passenger/diners. But, cuz they happened to be [mostly] black…

The Wine Train CEO issued a public apology to the group last week which said his staff “100 percent wrong in its handling of this issue.” He then offered the group a private 50-seat train car to themselves — an over $6,000 value — to make up for the incident.

Those BassTurdz!!

Book Club Booted From Napa Valley Wine Train Seeking $5 Million For ‘Malicious Oppression’

Malicious Oppression”. Was that a real term last week? But I think we can work with it…

Every time one is forced to get a permit [read: permission you pay for. see also: vig] from their .gov so they can change a window, build a shady backyard bbq area, change a TP roll, or -Ghu Fahbid- open a new business, Cry “Malicious Oppression” and let loose the Dogs Against Bureaucracy.

Yeah! Meeeeeeee Too!!!11!!!! [Si! Y Yoooooooo!!!11!!!!

Ruiz described the group as being made up of “all Latino individuals,” [10 people] the majority of whom were local University of California–Berkeley graduates. She now sees the incident as one of racial bias.

“I think it was just that person complaining and then the manager seeing that we were Latino, basically decided to discriminate [against] us because we were Latinos and [a big] group,” she said. “Now that I hear about this event with a group of African American ladies being kicked out of the train, I’m seeing a pattern. I’m realizing that how I was treated was not normal.”

…say Ruiz’s group was not removed, but only threatened with removal.

$5 Mil divides up right nice… for an afternoon’s par-tayin’.

I predict “Booook Club” reservations will increase sharply on the Napa Whine Train.

[The Napa Valley Wine Train crisis communications specialist Sam Singer said] … the company has to remove parties of “all different races” from the train or ask them to leave about once a month “because of behavior that affects the experience of other passengers.”

    I just can’t deal with these reality-vacuum regions in the Universe right now.

    The Wine Train CEO issued a public apology, etc.

    Well, one of the basic laws of the universe is that behavior that’s rewarded gets repeated. Wonder if that train will even be in business five years hence.

    Good thing they invented smart phones with video cameras. Not only cops need their pitchurs took.

    I’m getting tired of popcorn. Can we have chocolate-covered pecans for a while?
