KingCast Supports the Cleveland Browns Players who Took a Knee to Support Social Justice and Freedom for All.

Note to Cousin Mike over at ESPN:

As a Cleveland, Ohio native I definitely despise the Indians (2007 link) for holding on to Chief Wahoo. I have questioned that symbol for forty (40) years since I was a Tris Speaker little league pitcher in 1976-77, and as a law clerk for Civil Rights lawyer Terry H. Gilbert 1991-1993, nothing new there.

What is new is the Cleveland Browns ongoing support for social and legal reform, focused primarily on people of color but yes ultimately no one is free when others are oppressed. Still.

"We have work to do...." (Washpost story).

Here in Seattle Michael Bennett encourages more involvement from caucasian players and Justin Britt concurs.

And when children play football they play it without any intent to discriminate based on racial or ethnic differences so why should a league so vastly populated by people of color fail to support Fairness, Equality and Justice for All?

The NFL owners need to stop blackballing Colin Kaepernick and start supporting social reform. This way even more people of color can attend their games and line their pockets.  So if they don't do it for the Right Reasons they can do it out of pure self interest, which they are fully entitled to exploit. The Bottom Line: Society is larger than the Game. May the NFL franchise owners never forget that.

I remain proud of my hometown.

KingCast is Covering an EEOC Sex Discrimination Complaint Against Seattle Lifestyle Giant Tommy Bahama.

Kimberly Doucette's Certificate for harassment/fairness prevention.
Quelle Coincidence!

Note: I sent emails and phone calls regarding this matter to Tommy Bahama HR VP Joan Wright on or about 15 August, 2017 seeking a reply by the end of last week. I heard nothing, but when the company checked up on my journal page after that, I wrote them assuming that they were preparing to respond to me, however that does not appear to be the case.  At this time I am posting this journal entry and I will complete video production by Wednesday of this week.

When Kimberly Doucett landed her first job with clothing food and lifestyle leading company Tommy Bahama as a basic web designer she had no idea she would be fighting to sue her employer for sex discrimination and trying to figure out how she suddenly became far less than a model employee. 

Doucett claims that she garnered great work reviews over the years on her way to a position as a digital design manager and a recent statement by one of her former co-workers seems to support that notion: The source wrote a letter to HR VP Joan Wright. I am not aware of any written correspondence in return. 

The source claims that based on her years of experience with people who directly reported to Ms. Doucett she was: 
“Thoughtful and thorough…… easily one of the hardest-working, most focused members of the Design team."  According to this source Ms. Doucett “kept her team's work consistent and on-brand, and managed with heart.” 
The source states further that she “could see no legitimate reason for Kim to be reprimanded and put on a P.I.P.” and that it was a “smear campaign.” 
"It is baffling to me that her behavior or work would have been so called into question that disciplinary action was warranted.”......  “It felt like a tactic to oust her from her position and department, and to make way for new management.” 
The source claims that Ms. Doucett was scared after the false PIP and felt she would not be heard by anyone in the company. The source claims that Mike Eustice displayed a dismissive or condescending attitude toward women. 

Ms. Doucett claims that she received a false performance review from Mike Eustice, and that the company selectively “lost” other favorable performance reviews whilst constructively discharging her last month. She claims that the company did not truly have an open door policy when employee situations like hers arose. She further claims that the company tried to force her into a standard severance package immediately after the review and that she never resigned from the company, instead taking vacation time. 

The company policy expressly states that resignations should be in writing:

Here at KingCast, I want to know whether Ms. Doucett received any reprimands prior to Mr. Eustice’s arrival, i.e. whether she received any reprimands or constructive discipline in the six (6) years she worked for the company? 

And of course I want to know the age and sex of all or any of the employees in digital design over the past couple of years and who received discipline, promotion, termination, etc. etc. so I will await the findings of the EEOC investigation, hot off the heels of an Action filed against Big5 Sporting Goods alleging horrendous acts of racism at the Oak Harbor Store. 

Perhaps coincidentally the Complaining Party in this case hails from Oak Harbor. For more on EEOC v. Big5 click here. The Federal Docket Number in Western District Court here in Seattle is 2:17-CV-01098.

Let's review some documents relative to Ms. Doucett's missing performance reviews in this colloquy between HR VP Joan Wright and Ms. Doucett shall we:
I just looked up your manager history. Looks like James was your manager for the 2013 review and 2014 review. The 2013 cancelled as it was not complete. Looks like the 2014 was also cancelled because James left in early January 2015 and the 14 review was not complete. Then for 2015 we never launched the review process.
Fascinating isn't it. What is the real answer.... stay tuned.

KingCast asks Pepper Underfoot the Australian Cattle Dog: "Spoiled, Much?"

No Sir, no spoiling going on around here.  Nope.

There is a serious dearth of attention being given to 

As such, I have launched a campaign to try to ease her pain
and to bring her out of her suffering. I am open to ideas.
Here are some offerings from me and others over the past week or so:

Michele bought a new truck for Peppers to play in
with her boy Bodey.

These ladies offered up beer and hugs.

My Ohio Homie Steve was trying to figure out how to spoil Pepper since 1988, 
27 years before she was even born LOL.

Tim offers treats and hugs.

Papa takes naps with her on the lawn.

Throngs of revelers seek her attention 24/7.

So really, the situation is dire so any ideas you have 
will be duly noted and appreciated!

KingCast Laughs as Kelly Ayotte BFF and Racist Bigot Xenophobe Joe Arpaio is Found in Contempt of Court, Guilty of Racism.

Hahahahaa.... funny how the Truth always comes out isn't it. From today's BBC story.

"He was found to have violated a judge's 2001 order that he cease detaining migrants who are not suspected of having committed a state crime. Judge Susan Bolton determined that by detaining those living in the US illegally, Mr Arpaio was acting as a de facto wing of the federal government. He faces up to six months in prison. However, lawyers say it is unlikely that he will ever serve time behind bars." (KingCast Note:  Of course not. He's a government official).
Now then let's take a trip down Memory Lane shall we?  You see my video capture of Sheriff Joe Arpaio from the Kelly Ayotte rally in 2010, noting him to be a "bigot xenophobe?"  Yep.  So this was from back in the 2010 Day when U.S. Senate Candidate Kelly Ayotte hated me for exposing all of her bullshit on the Like Kenney Greg Floyd Bruce McKay double homicide case, and her failed attempt to prosecute me as NAACP Legal Chair, and her failed attempt to nab me for Unauthorized Practice of Law?  Meanwhile the Mayor of Nashua and Aldermen awarded me a Commendation for First Amendment work.


Well at that time she and Sheriff Joe got away with blocking me from a publicly-advertised public event, chaperoned by on duty Nashua Police Officers.  She used Landya B. McCafferty as Magistrate Judge to do her dirty work, McCafferty having worked for the same law firm (McLane) as Kelly.... while Jack McLane served as my opposing Counsel. Not one person ever told me about this. I figured it out with David Riddley of Riddley Report and then forced her to recuse herself. Watch the video.  

Meanwhile the idiots at Politico and a wanker by the name of David Shankbone wrote it all up as if I had no idea what I was talking about, well fuck them too as I noted that unlike Kelly Ayotte, I've actually won First Amendment trials, ahem. Watch the video.  So piss on the lot of ya, especially Sheriff Joe :)

PS:  NH had had attempted a similar initiative criminalizing undocumented workers ...... I asked him about it right here: https://youtu.be/b8E5y04ryb4?t=2m40s
