Linked is a business social media site. Shortly after publishing a post about police brutality and Affluenza, I was locked out of MY linkedIn account without the courtesy or professionalism I came to expect from businesses with top notch customer relation management.
Without explanation LinkedIn prevented access to my emails, contact lists and notes. Two to three emails later in which I requested access to my account I received the email below. That email remains the only response from LI.
Over the last year, I went from 30 to over 2000 connections on LinkedIn. Apparently, my profile is still very active only change is: it is no longer my profile ..it is LinkedIn impersonation of my profile.
In addition, people previously blocked from contact now have carte Blanche access to my profile and I do not.
Let us listen to their conversation about police brutality, violence and terrorist activities against black people. This could be a real learning experience.
First, the three white males are responding to following image : Don’t shoot! I want to grow up.
BTW, their responses are vanilla cloned for those recipients of white privilege–coded responses, effective labeling and control of cognitive dissonance among privileged white males.
“Indeed that is so very true , but killing there own , little kids , same color , etc. drive by shootings, guns , gangs, dumbass’s ! The little ones die for the idiot’s that wanna be tough ass holes ! It makes no fricken sense to me ! How can it to anyone else ! They are killing each other is that racism ???? Nope that is fricken Stupidty !!!!!!!!!!!!!! “
Me: Did he miss the point as do many of his kind? But note how he feigns concern only to label and insult black children.
Robert Gracia commented on your photo:
“You would be right Mr. Pinder, the 90% you are referring to are by definition criminals which are classified as such not for their race but rather because they think the laws do not apply to them and there for refuse to follow them. Once again the issue is not about race or guns but about people making excuses and pointing fingers rather then taking responsibility and being productive members of our society”
Me: I blocked this member from contact. Frankly, I do not like him….he scares me. I would only meet him armed and with bodyguards. However, LinkedIn, a business social media site is unconcerned about my safety or my individual rights guaranteed under our constitutional republic. LinkedIn is no model for business…it is everything that makes the workplace frustrating, stressful and DANGEROUS!
Me: This white male has no clue, and I am scared of him. LinkedIn endangered my life as I blocked this person who still stalks.
Jonathan Williams commented on your photo:
“Wow, yeah let’s fight racism with racism. Makes sense. Be the change you wish to see. Funny no matter how educated someone can be, they are still as ignorant as can be. “
Me A racist can never see any farther than his nose.
Doug Arnoldt ( LION 2,700+ ) commented on your photo:
“Considering the homicides in African American Areas ! Who should start first ??”
Me: Stats are manipulated….I no longer trust any data if it goes against common sense and my observations. Most black people in jails are innocent and as videos keep coming in we get confirmation that this should be investigated further.
This image with a brief caption generated the above comments from three LinkedIN members, one of which I blocked from all contact. Why was he able to contact me? IMO, these men have no compassion or empathy for people of color, similiar mindset to abusive police and correctional officers, corrupt judges, prosecutors and public defenders. These are dangerous people. And these are the comments LinkedIn sent me. There are more comments but I can’t see them.
Claude Boulet commented on your photo:
“PLEASE SHOUT, we want all of our children to grow up. I am 100% with you on this Angela. Dogma is a word that comes too mind. Really its time for people to admit the hidden truths, that is the best education and cure. I think the requirement for turn around is too minimize crime itself or a certain type of crime. The law is tainted by race or region, but really how can it be changed? I want to walk with a feeling of security too just like you.”
Me: Claude Boulet gets it!
Several questions for LinkedIn as this post will form the basis of my official complaint to the appropriate authorities–who will do absolutely nothing.
1. Why did LinkedIn lock my account without warning or explanation? I suspect a complaint originated from the first three fellows.
2. Does LinkedIn not feel an obligation to honor one’s privacy, especially when I blocked ALL contact with Robert Garcia.
Why are stalkers allowed access to my profile? And why did I receive emails from a male I fear?
As I do not have access to my profile I cannot say with certainly that all three were blocked; now that LinkedIn hacked my account I will never know.
3. Their remarks are offensive and insulting to people of color. I am deeply offended. However, Linked-In allowed someone I fear to continually make offensive comments and terrify me. Why was I blocked for offensive comments and they were not? Old boys network??? And no concern for my safety from Linked-In.
4. Why hasn’t anyone complained about their offensive remarks? Perhaps those who complained were ignored by Linked-In as I was. I believe LinkedIn and Donald Sperling are one of a kind.
5. If LinkedIn wants my business I expect respect and customer service. I do not care if LinkedIn does this to others, it still does not make it right or good business.
6. Why does LinkedIn not value my business?
Linked-In Response. — others have access to my profile, people I blocked from viewing my profile or communication contact because of stalking concerns. I wonder are those fellows the ones who complained and what is their relationship with Linked-in
Please Stand Your Ground: Get Armed!
This is the LI post that resulted in a locked account without warning. How inconvenient to not have access to one’s business contacts? I suggest LI users look elsewhere for reliable service. An anonymous idiot could be justification for LI to lock your account and read your emails. Is that okay with YOU?
BTW, prostitution seems to be an acceptable business on LI….maybe Linkedin should investigate further. No I think they like that business.
