The Morning Wrap: July 11th

Break.com Staff by Break.com Staff on Jul. 11, 2013

As the week winds down, why not give yourself a break from all that hard work by coming in today wearing an eye patch.  If anyone asks, you were hit in the face with shrapnel from an exploding car.  You’ll look cool, sound bad ass and people will expect less productivity from you and your poor depth perception.  Now on to the news!

The Saudi Princess Slave Driver

A Kenyan woman flagged down a bus in Southern California and let authorities know she’d been taken from Kenya last year, her passport was taken and she’d been forced to work excessive hours for low pay.  No, she wasn’t working in a Wal Mart, she was hired by a Saudi Princess and is claiming she’s the victim of human trafficking.  There’s a story you don’t hear every day.  How many Saudi princesses are there anyway, and can’t they afford just regular workers without kidnapping Kenyans?

 

Zimmerman is Winning Over the Media

No one likes George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin, mostly because even if you believe him 100% about what happened, he’s clearly an asshole who went looking for trouble.  That said, it also looks like everyone believes him and a lot of people think he’s going to go free as no one seems to be able to refute his side of the story at all.

 

Target on Racism

Target usually sits on the sidelines while WalMart soaks up all the terrible press, but today they’re front and center for a lawsuit over their use of a racist training manual.  What’s a racist training manual, you ask?  Is this just someone being over sensitive about a picture or something that was foolishly written in the 1970s that no one’s gotten rid of yet?  Not exactly.  The manual is designed to inform employees about multiculturalism.  Here’s an except about Hispanics!

"This document instructs managers to note differences among Hispanic employees, and states the following:
     "a. Food: not everyone eats tacos and burritos;
     "b. Music: not everyone dances to salsa;
     "c. Dress: not everyone wears a sombrero;
     "d. Mexicans (lower education level, some may be undocumented);
     "e. Cubans (Political refugees, legal status, higher education level); and
     "f. They may say 'OK, OK' and pretend to understand, when they do not, just to save face."

 

Incest Ain’t Best

Bobbi Kristina, daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, is in a relationship with her brother.  But don’t worry, it’s not creepy because he’s not her biological brother, he was just raised as her brother from the age of ten and constantly referred to as her brother and they call each other brother and sister all the time except for when she amps up the gross and calls him “brudder.”

Kids, don’t sleep with siblings or people raised to be your siblings because, as is obvious to just about everyone else in the world, those are two completely different kinds of love and mixing them is confusing and weird.  So weird.

 

Adult Diapers Rule Japan

The adult diaper business in Japan is worth $1.4 billion and is expected to surpass the baby diaper business by the year 2020.  If our math is correct, in the year 2045, everyone in Japan will be an old man covered in pee.

Bobbi Kristina has to be one of the ugliest human beings in existence.

Human Trafficking is an ongoing problem with the Saudis they actually believe they are entitled to keep slaves and yes, they do ship them to north america when they travel there. paid employees are so demanding after all. srsly Break you need to be more aware of the world you live in.

@Stephanie Marshan Lindley What do you mean by "they"? I am American and I like being urinated on while pleasuring myself with my own feces as lubricant. Ugghhh, people are so narrow minded.

@jbart321 Have to agree...

I also wonder what the point of being the daughter of celebrities is if you can't even afford dental work. Youch.

@Mike-Emmons-39 Why aren't they allowed to keep slaves?  This isn't the planet America - other countries are sovereign and able to do as they wish.

She was in America...note...."California". In other countries she may be able to do as she pleases, but she was in the US.
