So, you can't be fired because of race in those states, but you can be fired for being unattractive or having red hair or because you use the words "ain't" and "'cuz" too much or because you cheated on your wife. It's not like 29 states have laws that specifically say it's OK to fire people for being gay. In those states, being gay is like being left handed or pronouncing the word "often" with a hard "t" sound instead of leaving it silent. It's just a run-of-the-mill characteristic.
Please provide examples of where people were fired for their pronunciation of "often".
