DOUBLETREE PORTLAND FINALLY FIRES 2 RACIST STAFFERS AFTER UPROAR
Doubletree Portland finally fires the 2 racist employees and profilers who harassed and kicked out a black guest. Portland Doubletree at first tried to explain away the completely unexplainable. But they finally fired the two racists after the story went national and questions kept piling up. They said of the two, “Their actions were inconsistent with our standards & values.” Well sure, after absolutely everyone questioned why you hadn’t fired the two immediately. But maybe it was because Doubletree is owned by the Hilton empire. And Hilton was getting questions, too.
FIRED STAFFERS PROFILED BLACK GUEST ON PHONE IN LOBBY, CALLED COPS AND KICKED HIM OUT
The guest the two racist Portland Doubletree staffers harassed was Jermaine Massey, 34, and black. Massey made the mistake of using his cell phone on December 22nd when his mom called while he was in the hotel lobby. Massey had already checked into the hotel earlier but went out to dinner before returning around 11pm. He saw he missed a call from his mom so he called her back from a secluded spot in the lobby. After a couple minutes a white security guard, “Earl,” walked up and asked him what room he was staying in.
SO DON’T BE ON THE PHONE WHILE BLACK, AND DON’T IGNORE WHITE AUTHORITY?
Massey, replied, “I said: ‘I don’t know, I’m having a conversation right now. Can you leave me alone right now?’” Earl then told Massey that he was trespassing and he was calling the police. Video Massey recorded shows Earl standing over him saying the police were coming soon to remove him from the property. Massey tells him he’s a hotel guest. Earl replied, “Not anymore.” Another (now fired) employee walks over and says Earl “wouldn’t ask me to call 911 without any cause.” Massey’s recorded video ends with a Portland cop saying that Earl was, “in control of the property.”
Everyone expects legal action from Massey. Stay tuned. And if you’re black, remember not to offend any redneck, sensitive white “authority” figures when talking on the phone to family.
