Not surprising. Serena and Venus Williams faced the same kind of drama. I read they were called the nword several times by other athletes.

Gabby Douglas Tells Oprah: "I Was Bullied," Called "Slave" by Gymnasts in Virginia During Early Training - UsMagazine.com

Gabby Douglas languished and suffered as a young gymnast in her native Virginia Beach, Virginia -- where she was taunted by fellow gymnasts, sometimes even with racial slurs.
Now 16 and in possession of two gold medals, Douglas (with mom Natalie Hawkins) told Oprah Winfrey on Sunday's Oprah's Next Chapter about the less-than-ideal atmosphere at a local gym. "One of my teammates was like, 'Can you scrape the bar?' And they were like, 'Why doesn't Gabby do it, she's our slave?'"


"I definitely felt isolated, I felt why am I deserving this? Is it because I'm black? Those thoughts would go through my mind," said the champ, who became the first-ever African-American to win the coveted All-Around trophy. The teasing got so bad that, at age 14, Douglas threatened to quit the sport altogether if they couldn't move away and find a new coach.

"I felt like I was bullied and isolated from the group, and they treated me not how they would treat the other teammates," Douglas admitted.

But nope, we tried to knock her down a few notches, because her "roots" identified her....roots.

However..I'm TOTALLY feeling "her "roots" identified her...roots." Certain folks was MAD! LOL!

Thinking that might not have been for me I check my package status and he marked it undeliverable because "the driver needs security access which must be obtained from resident/consignee in order to enter building."
I live in a house, there is no fence and my porch/front door is wide open. Lazy Oaf.
If you dont like your job, find a new one.

then I called to make sure they dont mark it as a delivery attempt, and after she did she hung up on me.. Okay UPS.
