Thank you! I really needed that, I’m still hurt by the comments.

What did they talk about?

Well for one, they started by talking about Botham Jean’s murder, calling it an unfortunate accident. And now some of the white people in my office are defending that choice of words and agreeing that it was an accident. So we have a ways to go...

Oh trust me, me too. I audibly gasped (heads turned) and then I almost walked out. I’m still so mad they would frame it that way, it’s unacceptable.

Wow that’s crazy^

You can't be serious about being offended about terming it an "accident". A) it is an unfortunate incident - fact, B) we don't know whether it was a malicious act or an accident, so see "A". I don't work at GT (thankfully), but I don't see how they are in the wrong here. If we continue to get upset when others are "trying" (no matter how we interpret their actions), it only makes us look petty as a whole. Just my $0.02
