But they don't have a problem with the big set of blue bull nutts swinging under the bumper? These people need to get a life. Telling someone to speak English or get out is not racist. It applies to a multitude of people and does not really single anybody out. The rebel flag I just don't get myself. I thought it was cool when I was a kid but seriously you rebel rednecks just need to just give it up already.

If you think you find guaranteed employment elsewhere I say stick to your guns and call their bluff but otherwise you may want to reach a compromise.

Well

Because my mouth usually gets me in trouble, I'd ask them just how they were planning to fire me because of it.
