Who said she should bend over and take it?

Someone said that the news reporter shouldn't have responded to the facebook commenter.

That's still reaching though. I don't think any black woman supports her being fired just because they feel she shouldn't have responded. I don't give didactic responses to racist trolls, I'll report at most. That's just me.

I don't think that's what the person meant when they said that black women shouldn't express the "bend over and take it" mentality.

But then again...I agree she's allowed to say whatever she wants and shouldn't have to shut up just because it's the internet and "we know how the internet goes". She felt like she needed to educate whoever was making that comment, but obviously it just back fired on her. Somebody needs to tell these people off and let them know that it's not okay to say certain things to people...on the internet and in real life. She wasn't rude, disrespectful or using vulgar language. The only things I see wrong with this situation is the comment made towards her and the fact that she was fired.

We shouldn't have to be afraid to say what we feel is right because we're afraid to be fired from our jobs or something.

I have mixed feelings about this. People think it is ok to say whatever they want because they are online. And I totally get her wanting to reply back. I think the station could have had an intern to filter post on their site and FB page. But I think she personally should not have replied but had somebody else make a statement if she really wanted to say something.

That being said, I hope she gets her job back and I hope my little letter helps but as a non-viewer they might ignore me.

well damn.  it seems she ain't check her email when she got back. *sucks teeth*  still think she shouldn't have been fired tho.  if they must make an example....perhaps a reprimand.  She was in no way rude.
