Flanagan had been warned he’d be fired if he didn’t curb his angry outbursts. Finally, several years ago, the inevitable happened. Jeffrey Marks, general manager of WDBJ, recalled, “Eventually after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him. He did not take that well.”I can confirm that from personal experience. You want to know what “not taking that well” sounds like? It sounds like this: “Aieeeyahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
It’s not uncommon for businesses to be wary of firing black employees, for just that reason.
I remember this outburst well. It happened about 1982 at a tire shop in Northeast Austin.
It seems the shop had just paid a black male employee his last paycheck. The shop immediately fired him.. The black employee then picked up a large torque wrench used to tighten the bolts on wheels, and hurled the wrench across the garage. The wrench hit a white male co-worker squarely in his head. (Thus the outburst.)
I heard the outburst, but saw nothing as I was in the shop's waiting area. The employee who had been injured was bleeding from his forehead. I knew this as this employee had rushed from the garage area of the building inside to the employee area. I left the shop minutes later as repairs to my car were finished.
As I drove away I espied a large, black male walking down the road towards Highway 290. Minutes later I saw a city of Austin police car approach the male. I then drove off.
Disgruntled black male employees are exceedingly dangerous individuals.

That number is incomplete, not only because there've been at least three incidents of this type, since then, but because of the tradition of covering this up—you never see an MSM headline saying "Black Gunman Shoots White Co-Workers.
