Former Benjamin Moore employee Tucker Clinton has filed a discrimination lawsuit against his former employer because he’s offended by the company paint names, yes you read that correctly.
From the Daily Caller:
A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained.
Tucker worked on a project to create a new line of paint colors. One of the shades was given the name “Tucker Chocolate.”
The company already had a color named “Clinton Brown.”
If you visit Benjamin Moore’s website, they describe “Tucker Chocolate” as “capturing the 1798 color requested by St. George Tucker for his home facing Courthouse Green.”
People these days are offended by everything and anything, most just looking for a quick dollar, but they wont get anything. The new right in America has become the “right to not be offended” as liberals have literally destroyed Americans common sense and approach to freedoms. Since we’re becoming the nation of whiners and babies, maybe its only a matter of time before these paint colors have their day in court:
1.“Fiesta Yellow”: This could be taken as a racial slur to people of Mexican and Asian descent.
2. “White Vanilla”: This could be seen in the same light as Tucker Chocolate – and as insensitive to Caucasians.
3. “Apache Red”: Perhaps the U.S. Copyright Office should look into this one like they did with the Washington Redskins.
4. “Confederate Red”: This could be taken as racially offensive, although the Confederate Flag is actually bright red, not a darker shade like the color Benjamin Moore sells.
