The Maga-hat kid incident and the response by the media is nothing short of online lynching. This is a 16 year old kid smiling. That's it. We have people calling for his life to be ruined. Shameful.

I don’t blame these kids nor do I blame Mr Phillips. I blame those stupid MAGA hats and everything they stand for. C’mon cons you can’t be so naive to see the inane baggage that comes with sporting those things. If you need me to point to 1000 videos of people saying hateful stuff whilst wearing those, I might oblige. The media my have got it wrong this time, but that doesn’t change what those hats represent

Here's a video showing the "smirking" kid right before it happened. Check out @pragmatometer’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/pragmatometer/status/1087379932857188353?s=09 Phillips approached him, and the kid is basically confusedly smiling.

The main kid in my eyes wasn’t much of the problem. It was the rest of the little shits doing their Indian chants that was terrible. But I’m sure you guys saw nothing wrong with that

OP - where were you when Trump called everybody names, bad mouthed minorities, Mexicans etc. Seems like you are very selective when it comes time to picking sides. Wear a MAGA hat to your client tomorrow and even to your consulting firm if you are on beach. You will then realize what it represents. MAGA = HATE guised under pretext of loving one's nation

PWC1, “how justice is served”? Do you mean online vigilantism or do you mean courts of law, because if you’re going the non-vigilante route the only law you could maybe try to pull in is something around hate speech which only the Black Israelite group might be guilty of. Standing around while a guy walks up and bangs a drum in your face isn’t illegal...

And yet Antifa are modern-day superheroes to the extreme leftist. Harassing someone at a restaurant or going to their home and terrorizing them make the left feel warm and cozy inside. I wonder why no one on the left has called for an end to their tenure, blackmailed them from job or college application, or even denounced their actions?

Deloitte Moms, I just found out I’m pregnant with my first! Super excited! I have a question about the firm maternity leave policy. Per my knowledge, our maternity leave is 4 months. However, I’ve seen coworkers who went on leave for up to 6 months. How do they manage to do that? Also, based on your experience, when’s the optimal time to tell employer/ coworkers about your pregnancy?

Me and my husband are unsure whether we want kids or not. What are some good resources to read up on to understand what we would be signing up for by having a child or missing out on by not having one? Also ladies who have/do not have kids. What were your reasons for deciding against/for having kids. I am extremely confused and do not want to run out the clock and realise later that we should have had kids. We like kids (we always point out kids to each other in public) but unsure about our own.
