It’s not a joke; it’s from San Francisco:
A jury awarded $465,000 to a Muslim security guard who says his co-workers and supervisors called him a terrorist and an al-Qaida member.
Jurors added $400,000 in punitive damages Monday to their earlier award of $65,000 to Abas Idris for lost wages and emotional distress…
This despite his former employer Andrews International having promoted Idris to a supervisory position. No matter how you pander to the special people, it will never be enough.
The lost wages were a result of Idris having quit because the company was unable to take his “harassment” complaints seriously. Now they will be punished.
The case allowed him to show that Islam is a religion of peace, he said.
There’s no mention of whether he was wearing a shirt like this to work.
