What should have happened…by Felina Silver Robinson
Bethenny Frankel is a single mom. Time is not something she has a lot of. She like many of us wear multiple hats and Bethenny is no exception. Bethenny is a mom, a reality tv personality, and a business owner. When she finally has the time to go shopping, I’m sure much like me, she has everything thought out and timed.
In an article published in Eonline entitled “Bethenny Frankel Rants About Kmart Workers Who “Speak No English,” Is Dubbed a “Racist””. Bethenny was called a racist. This truly got my blood boiling. Bethenny meant no harm and certainly wasn’t being malicious in her ranting. Bethenny’s only hope at the time was to find someone, anyone that spoke English that could help her with something as simple as shoes. I’m sure we have all been in the very same place. I know that I certainly have.
I know that we live in a free country which is the reason that so many people choose to come to the United States. There have been many occasions where I couldn’t get the help I needed due to language barriers. It’s always been my feeling that if you work in an area where helping customers is key, then you definitely need to be able to speak the language of the majority.
To be compared to Donald Trump is outrageous and an outright insult to Bethenny. She truly did not deserve that. People say a lot of nasty things when they don’t think they will have to answer for it and of course it is a lot easier to do over social media.
People should tread lightly when talking about race. It’s not so easy to take things back once said. Situations such as these can cause irreparable damage. Bethenny deserves better treatment than this.
There are definitely more serious matters that people should be spending their time on.
