Dutch Maid Logistics -- Orientation/Training

After submitting my last response, I realized I missed one of the many critical coincidences from your story, Kerry.

Not only was this a racist fight, but it was a fight over an interracial couple, AND the people who were being racist were truck drivers!

Now let's see.....why did Kerry come here? Oh yeah, because he was promoting the idea that racist truck drivers would be a problem for him because of his interracial marriage. When no one jumped on his bandwagon and none of us had ever experienced anything of the sort, within days Kerry miraculously gets involved in a fight started by racist truck drivers over an interracial relationship.

We need a "troll" smiley, don't we?

You're trolling, Kerry.

**** you, Brett.

I am submitting my posts with proper English and in the moderation process they are being changed. Pretty childish.

I am the moderation process and I haven't touched your posts. What the hell is wrong with you?

I didn't make anything up and there was no exaggeration. Actually, two people on here did say that people like the Dutch Maid Logistics driver in this bar don't don't exist.

Find those two quotes. Put a link to the pages they're on. I want to see which two people said that no racism exists. If you can't find those quotes, then you're simply here trolling and slandering us, and of course this community doesn't tolerate that. So I'll look for those links tomorrow.

Here are the thread and the two comments to which I am referencing are by Banks and Bird-One. Both gentlemen indicated that the idea of a trainer having an issue with a trainee being in an interracial relationship is ludicrous that racism just isn't a problem about which to be concerned. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I have a photo of my wife on the home screen of my phone, which is quite common.

The driver at the bar called one of those women a n-word lover when she said that she has a mixed race child after telling him twice while I was at the bar to stop using that word. I didn't say anything to him because it wasn't my conversation in which to interject myself. I only became involved when it became a matter of escalating violence. The other two Dutch Maid employees also stepped in to prevent further violence. My whole point in bringing this up is because I was told that this is something that would never be an issue and that I am virtue signaling for thinking that it could be an issue (a comment made by Mikey B). I still bothered by the horrible things that this driver said and have concern for what could come out of his mouth when I eventually decide to have my wife in the truck with me and he sees this when I pull into the terminal. I still think about the fact that I easily could have been assigned to him as my trainer.

We need to be willing to admit that people like this driver are more common than they should be almost 180 years after the abolishment of slavery. I am sorry if some people feel uncomfortable with these statements. However, I am not sorry for stating these things because it is true. Bird-One made a comment in this thread saying that I am lying by either making the story up or exaggerating it.

Personal Life Details

Sorry about the earlier post where I submitted Brett's quoted text without my own included statement. Accidental button push as my phone lagged.

Those quotes are in my "Personal Details" thread. I will post them. Hopefully that post of mine isn't censored, as many of mine have been. If I read the quotes that I am recalling from memory and find that I was mistaken in what was said, then I will retract my statement and apologize.

Damn Kerry I was just wondering how you were doing without knowing you started this thread. Come across it and here you are on your own he world is racist tirade again by either making a story up or grossly exaggerating it. Nobody said racism doesn’t exist. I’ll say again like other drivers have said. I have yet to see any acts of racism in trucking. Good luck to you Kerry.

What town? What was the name of this bar?

The Shoe Box, about a mile from the hotel where I am at. It was about a 15 to 20 minute walk for me.

Dutch Maid Logistics -- Orientation/Training

Last night I decided to go to a bar to have a couple of drinks since I will not be driving for the next few days while my trainer is on home time. I went alone and planned to have a couple of beers alone. I got there and 3 DML employees were there: an experienced driver, a mechanic, and another trainee. The three of them were playing pool and basically asked me to join them. I arrived alone, but I am not one to be antisocial.

The experienced driver had been there for a bit and had been getting into things verbally with two women. I don't know how it started, but I know what I saw while I was there. He was using a racial slur and wouldn't stop when told to stop using that word. One of the women called him out and told him to step outside to fight. He continued running his mouth and the woman finally had enough. Both women started hitting him when he called one of them a n-word lover. I hate violence, so when I saw that it was going to continue to escalate, I stepped in to try to stop them. We were finally able to get things settled down and the driver out the door.

When I posted my question about personal details, this kind of driver is exactly the type of person I was worried about being given as a trainer. This driver is a trainer and he was at the terminal, ready for a trainee. Imagine how this guy would have reacted when he sees the photo of my wife that I have as a background on my phone. Do you think that a guy who calls a woman in a bar a n-word lover is going to treat me well when he sees the photo of a black woman on my phone? Yes, at some point he would see it as people notice those things when you go about using your phone for every day purposes.

Racism does exist and many of you need to start accepting that there are hateful people of all colors and backgrounds in this world. It shouldn't be that way, but it is, unfortunately.

Let me clarify. I have a photo of a black woman (my wife) as my background on my phone.
