There is some truth here... he picked the battleground. I understand why he would put it out to the media though if he's trying to say this stuff happens and we need to stop it. If he just has hurt feelings and thats what he cares about then you talk with the person directly.I'd agree with you completely, except Elijah made the public statement that he was disappointed DL didn't reach out to him directly. It goes both ways, so if Elijah expected a direct interaction, rather than a public statement, he should have started the process the same way.
You need to just talk to me before you flap your mouthBoomer, you dumb millennial ****. I'm Gen-X, your daddy son, not your granddaddy.
It refused to answer, because it knows it was caught in a trap. If it answers, then Americans know the commie rat bastards true feelings. You people are sick.
It gets way worse with the word black... its still not good imo because of the implied ownership he has and the power he has and that Millsap better bow to him or he will be back in Louisiana... which also kind of implies I will send your *** back to poverty. Its not great but the word black being in there probably makes it 10x worse.The main problem in what DL said (if it is true) is he included the word black in it. If he just told him "If you say one more word I’m going to cut your *** and send you back to Louisiana" this is a non-story right?
Is it possible that is what happened and Elijah thinks DL included black in it? It was 6 years ago and a serious conversation. Things can get fuzzy over time.
Problem is if DL doesn't deny it and give it a "no comment" or says " I reached out to Elijah" then everyone assumes he said it. There is the possibility that he didn't say it and Millsap has some bad feelings about being cut here.
I remember young in my career I had been a key part of a group that was just killing it. In some face time with two of the managing partners of this big firm they were discussing things in a more blunt manner than they should have been they said that I was a "key cog in the practice, but that I was just one of the cogs". He probably thought it was a complement. What I heard was... "you are replaceable and if you think you should be paid more than anyone else at your level because of the wild success of your practice... well just remember that you are disposable and we will just get another you tomorrow."
I was ****ing lit... I had busted my *** and covered for a bunch of Senior Managers that were worthless and making 2-3x what I was. I decided to go talk to a couple other firms and the first one I talked with offer me double my current salary plus a generous bonus. I left obviously and my previous employer then tried to sue me.
Anyway... I got sidetracked. DL could have told Elijah to stop talking in a heated moment or he will cut him. And maybe DL said exactly what Millsap says he did... but these type of things can change over time. If someone asked me about my former employer and I was like "yeah those guys told me I was replaceable and completely invaluable". They might say they gave me a pep talk and told me I was a key part of a valuable machine. We both might be kinda right... and no one will know the whole truth.
