What is going on with disneylannd??
A few months back we told you about on of the disney chartors walked out after being Sexual Harassment (CLICK HERE to read the full story).
The massive conglomerate has been sued by the American Civil Liberties Union because the company allegedly fired a Muslim employee at Disneyland in 2010 because she wore her hijab headscarf at work.
Even before being terminated, Imane Boudlal says she received insults from her employees AND supervisors because of her religion, origin and skin color. In fact, some went so far as to call her a terrorist, a camel and a bitch all while they carelessly accused Arabs of being terrorists and bombmakers.
The worst part of the allegations against the corporation is that managers and executives didn’t seem to care about the prejudiced comments. CLU chief counsel Mark Rosenbaum elaborated:
“When she reported these attacks to her Disney managers, she was told that she had to put up with them, told that Disney knew there was a problem, but that the solution was the directive from her bosses that she needed to stop complaining.”
Woah! So not cool!
Obvi, we don’t have both sides of the story yet so we can’t really judge either party. For Disney’s part, a spokeswoman has said:
“Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has a long history of accommodating a variety of religious requests from cast members of all faiths. However, because we have not seen the lawsuit, we cannot comment specifically about this situation at this time.
This is just so not good what happend to every ones equal is just so wrong!!
Janet Jackson is having a new film out called TRUTH thats about transgender equality witch is a mission for Janet to make equal.
Robert Jason, the director of the film, described the important project via a press release, saying:
“Janet Jackson will take us on a visually innovative, cerebraljourney through the turbulent lives of transgendered people of all ages around the world and their epic struggle for equality. This film will highlight landmark mainstream stories and provide a glimpse at others that will change the gender landscape of the world forever. Just as it is hard to believe that there ever was a time when different components of society were required to use separate drinking fountains, it is as incredible that one’s gender expression remains just such a target for discrimination.”
This is going to be really good and its going to change the minds of lots of people.
There is noting wrong with being Trans and people need to know that!
Janet will be extensively involved in the filming process and will even conduct a few interviews herself. Her goal is to “stop the hate and find understanding,” as she explained:
“All people are very important to me. I’ve been fortunate to make friends and learn about very different lives. TRUTH is our small chance to ask that you try and understand someone who lives their life in a way that is a little bit different from yours, even though all of our hearts are the same. We want to stop the hate and find understanding.”
Good luck girly we can’t wait to watch the finished product!
This is so amazing!!
