Remember Frannie Richards?
She's the women who is bringing up charges against H&M for discrimination a few month ago. After encountering an H&M associate with a slew of racist and sexist comments, Richards has taken action.
H&M has now recruited a Filipino lawyer Joseph J. Centeno, to represent their case. Centeno, a partner with Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP in Philadelphia, is - GET THIS - Commissioner to the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission. He is friggin' in charge of enforcing anti-discrimination ordinances and HE'S THE ONE REPRESENTING H&M.
I'm trying not to drop f-bombs, but WHAT THE ---- IS THIS?
So the case of Filipina vs. H&M and Filipino lawyer is set.
I can officially say that this disgusts me to the bone.
Centeno - This is a slap in the face to Frannie Richards and to many Filipinos everywhere.
