Diversity & Inclusion – Love Has No Labels

 

From the video description …

 

While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. This may be a significant reason many people in the U.S. report they feel discriminated against. Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues. Rethink your bias at lovehasnolabels.com.

 

 

 

DALLAS AIRPORT FIGHT CAUGHT ON VIDEO – 10/23/2014

 

 

An altercation at gate C30 at DFW airport. It appears that a man, possibly under the influence of drugs, takes a dislike to another man whom he assumes to be gay. It looks like the alleged gay man then takes a picture of the man harassing him. Then things escalate. When things turn violent several members of the public step in immediately to prevent it going any further.

It appears that one member of the public was injured, possibly breaking his ankle (listen for the noise 1 minute and 22 seconds into the video). He appears to be walking fine when he intervenes but later is seen in a wheelchair with one shoe removed.

One of the passengers who intervened has been identified as actor Paul Rudd who stared in films such as Anchorman and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and TV shows such as Parks and Recreation.

Update Oct 27th: Paul Rudd denies that he was one of the passengers who intervened, another story, and another story. But in this story the denial is still questioned.
