It Only Took a Week for an Alabama Accountant Who Got Her Job Back After Allegations of Racism to Be Fired Again

Earlier this month a senior accountant for the City of Birmingham, Alabama, Virginia Spidle, won the right to return her job after she was fired after allegations of racial bias against black employees. When she won the right to return to work, Spidle was quoted as saying, "I didn't do anything wrong, so I have no problem going back to work." Great attitude, right? Well, some people don't seem all that interested in her welcoming her back:

Senior accountant Virginia Spidle was given the pink slip after being slapped with more accusations from Mayor William Bell's administration, her lawyer said this afternoon. Spidle just returned to work last Monday and by Friday was in a hearing with city officials to discuss accusations of incompetence.

Look, lady. I don't know if you're racist and I don't know if you're incompetent but I can tell you one thing with an absolute certainty: These people don't like you. While I admire certain spiteful actions (especially those in a work environment), you seem to have picked an unwinnable battle. There are other jobs out there and I'm sure you'll be able to piss off those people too. Let this one go.
