Oh, Canada

Sometimes you’re so darn lame!

Dorothy Kateri Moore, a Mi’kmaq woman working at a sports store in Sydney, N.S., had complained that her boss, Trevor Miller, referred to her and other workers as “kemosabe” – the term used by the 1950s TV character Tonto, the Lone Ranger’s sidekick, to describe the masked cowboy.

Moore said Miller told her the word meant “friend.” But she claimed it was a racial slur and that its repeated use led to a poisoned work environment.

Closest thing I could find to an acceptable explanation to the term’s origin is here. But the idea that this kind of insanity ever was allowed to enter a courtroom is a boggler.

For God’s sake woman!
What is you malfunction?
