Another white person bites the dust after making a truthful, critical comment about the Obamas. June’s comments aren’t even in the least bit racist or even mean. She’s a Trump supporter who was criticizing the wasteful exploitation of the taxpayer by the Obamas.
This insane purging of white people has to stop.
A Regions Bank senior-level employee who was labeled “Racist of the Week” on social media after posting comments on Facebook derogatory of President Obama and his family, some of which alluded to slavery, is no longer with the company, the bank says.
June Pridmore was senior vice president of loan operations since 2008, according to her LinkedIn profile, which has been deleted.
“I voted [Trump] in,” she wrote, in part. “I like him. He has a beautiful wife unlike the ugly and embarrassing woman (for lack of a better word), in the White House now. Ms. Trump’s face would make Michele (sic) O’Bama (sic) a Sunday face.”
“I’m certainly glad [Trump] he has a lot of money because she he (sic) won’t be bought out like Barack (sic), socialist Muslim O’Bama (sic) or his wife or all those host of relatives they have in the whitehouse (sic) for US to support.
“They have sponged the US of money flying to every single location in which they could vacation, taking the Grandmother with them. ….Oh yes, and let us NOT forget they flew the family dog on a SEPARATE plane. If any idiot out there thinks that is justified, you deserved him as president.
“I prefer a man who can buy Michele (sic) and Barack and sell them several times over,” Pridmore wrote.
Not surprisingly, the comments, like the spate of similar racists thought expressed through social media since President-elect Donald Trump’s victory, ignited a social media firestorm.
Regions, headquartered in Birmingham, initially said it launched an investigation and revealed its response today.
Bank spokesperson Jeremy King said: “We appreciate the concerns shared about offensive social media comments that were made through an associate’s personal Facebook account. We want you to know that we share those concerns. Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business. The associate is no longer an employee of the company.”
Pridmore’s comments also raised concerns about whether her apparent biases might have influenced any loan approvals. King said the former employee was not in a position where she could approve or deny loans.
On her Facebook page, which has also been deleted, Pridmore said she attended Brookwood High School.
Regions is the nation’s 18th largest bank, with $125 billion in consolidated assets.
Al.com describes these comments as racist. They are not. They are political in nature. There’s no tie in with Obama’s race at all.
The liberal reporter who wrote this drivel is the one who should be fired. If I can find the time, I’m going to see if I can contact the editor at al.com and give them a education on real racism vs. the fake news that this liberal rag produces.
One more thing. Jane may have a civil tort against those who dubbed her “racist of the week.” That’s slander or defamation that caused her to lose her job.
Jane, sue the bastards.
