No Change of Venue in Reverse Discrimination Lawsuit

A federal judge says the reverse discrimination lawsuit by former Greenwood Leflore Hospital attorney George Dulin should be held in Aberdeen.

U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock dismissed requests by Greenwood Leflore to move the trial because motions asking for the change of venue were filed after a June deadline.

Dulin, who is white, alleges he was pushed out of his job as the hospital board's attorney in 2006 because of his race.

Dulin filed the lawsuit in November 2007 that claims the hospital board violated the Civil Rights Act and equal protection clause of the 14th amendment. He is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports the trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 19 in Aberdeen.

    Honestly?? "Suck It Up"?? Is that really your advice??? How about you suck up slavery...since nobody alive even lived through slavery or in the same regards was responsible for slavery?? I am sick and tired of being persecuted for something I wasn't even alive to witness, let alone participate in....African Americans need to "suck it up" The alternative would to be still living in Africa in a grass hut! The way I see it is even though your ancestors suffered. it put you where you are today. The same of my ancestors who escaped religous persecution and came to America.

    I do not like the terminology used in this article. Discrimination is discrimination and to refer to reverse discrimination then there never was any discrimination to begin with. For years blacks and other minorities have been "pushed aside" to advance the career of Caucasians so this attorney should "suck it up" and find another job. Its obvious the hospital was not pleased with his prior performance.
