Its seems as though a handful of social media users still haven’t learned to keep their racist, bigoted comments offline and out of sight.
Yet another white woman is out of a job after posting a disgustingly racist comment about First Lady Michelle Obama following her soul-stirring speech at the Democratic National Convention Monday night.
“Beautiful?? Seriously she is an ugly Black b****,” wrote home mortgage loan officer Lisa Greenwood in a now deleted tweet.
For the record, opting to use her real name on social media wasn’t the smartest move on Greenwood’s part, as Twitter users were quick to drag the mortgage loan officer for her distressful comment while notifying her employer, Home Point Financial, of the racist individual they had representing their company.

@HomePointLoans Will you be reviewing loans Lisa Greenwood turned down? Seems she had a pretty big bias. Hope no ugly black bitches applied.

Just last month, a Pittsburgh news anchor was ousted over a racially insensitive Facebook post concerning a tragic ambush in Wilkinsburg, during which six people, including an unborn baby, were killed at a backyard barbecue, Atlanta Black Star reports.
“You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday. … They are young black men, likely in their teens or in their early 20s,” newscaster Wendy Bell wrote on March 21. “They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before.”
Bell was ultimately terminated for the offensive comments but turned around and sued her former employer, claiming she was fired because she’s white.
Earlier that month, a Bank of America employee’s racist Facebook rant caused her to lose her job. Christine Mcmullen Lindgren worked as a personal banker at the company but got the boot after posting a lengthy tirade in which she repeatedly used the N-word to refer to African-Americans, according to ABS.
“I hate Facebook for this reason you f——- n—— and yes if [you] can call each other that well I can too,” Lindgren wrote. “F—— n—— go back to Africa get over your pity party.”
“You created this hatred and your own kind that brought your great great grandparents over here and sold them,” she continued. “Do something with your lives and your children’s lives I’m sure you don’t work collect welfare and teach hatred your poor children all 5 of them you can’t afford because I pay for them.”
