Fired for rapping

Is it cool to rap about committing acts of terrorism? Eh, I wouldn't buy the album.

But, it is funny that this guy worked as a baggage screener at George Bush International Airport in Houston.

And, yeah, I buy his explanation in the article. He wants to cash in on some current of Anti-Arab sentiment that he's experienced in society.

But, but, you might say, a baggage screener isn't the appropriate job for somebody saying such things, even in their spare time, away from work, or even in jest.

I might agree. But, then, "baggage screener," should be a high paying job, one that compensates you fairly for giving up your rights to free expression. It isn't.
