Chef Sues Dude Ranch Owner Who He Says Asked For 'Black People Food'
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Chef Armand Appling claims his former boss Madeleine Pickens asked him to make “black people food” in a lawsuit accusing the luxury resort owner of racial discrimination. The African-American cook says he was fired in 2014 for complaining about a hostile work environment after witnessing numerous discriminatory incidents at his workplace. He filed the federal lawsuit against Pickens, who is white, in February. Appling claims Pickens instructed him not to cook “white people food,” allegedly saying guests of the Mustang Monument Wild Horse Eco-Resort, her high-end dude ranch in northeastern Nevada, would rather eat fried chicken, barbecue ribs and corn bread, The Associated Press reported. Pickens, 69, is a philanthropist and the ex-wife of Oklahoma billionaire energy investor T. Boone Pickens. She is the founder and CEO of Mustang Monument, a “luxury American safari” that encompasses 900 square miles just outside the Ruby Mountains, according to its website. Accommodations in ...

Feds must dismiss unhinged advice on wild horses
Huffington Post - 5 months
Our nation's management of wild horses has been a long-running debacle of poor execution layered over questionable intentions and flagging resolve. Those problems have been compounded by violence toward horses by ranchers and other private resource users. The latest incident involves an attack on a number of wild horses living on a ranch overseen by the philanthropist and wild horse advocate Madeleine Pickens. Since 1971, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has had the task of managing wild horses, who are now classed, for administrative purposes, into 179 Herd Management Areas in 10 western states. The bureau's primary strategy over the past 20 years has largely consisted of rounding up and removing the animals from our public lands, ostensibly in an effort to protect the range from overgrazing. The original plan was to adopt out horses to private parties - which has been fraught with its own set of problems - but the removals have happened at a volume that not even a spirited ado ...
