What? JN didn't post that story. Butthurt much?

It's so funny how much property I own in your heads, just because you can't face the truth without making complete fools of yourselves and getting PWNED on a regular basis.

You nutcases just come up in here to deny whatver after only reading the headline. Thanks for stepping up to prove without a reasonable doubt that you're all full of shit.

Yes, I read the article. But let's not act like this sentence is "a slap on the wrist". Let's not act like a rabid blood-thirsty mob.

Re: Race-relations Issues

You don't know all the circumstances and details of the case. You don't know the legal reasons behind the sentence. From the point of view of a reasonable observer, the final sentence seems just.

Appalling. I understand that he was upset, but. One doesn't just beat up the customer. I hope they lock him up.

Is there any video evidence of her saying the N word?

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Flap your gums and pay the price. I bet she won't say that shit again in mixed company.

Here's a tip for any of you loudmouth keyboard-racists feeling frisky in public: Don't let your president get your ass whooped, he's got the Secret Service, you don't.

Re: Race-relations Issues

It's just sad that it's come this far. This level of violence is truly horrible. This sort of thing starts as a somewhat justified response to injustice, but it always goes out of control if left unsanctioned. At this stage I can easily see it lead to a civil war.

Re: Race-relations Issues

Here's an idea, stop being a racist saying racist shit. Just get your damn chicken then sit the fuck down and eat it.

Seriously, even an offensive word shouldn't get a large man bodyslamming a woman onto hard concrete.

Fired White Starbucks manager who called cops on 2 Black men claims racial bias

by A.R. Shaw


(Image source: Melissa DePino / Twitter video)

Nearly two years after racially profiling two Black men at a Starbucks in Philadelphia, a former manager claims that she was the victim of racial discrimination. Shannon Phillips filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019, in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey, according to NBC News.

In the lawsuit, Phillips, who is White, claims that she regularly “received positive performance evaluations and related merit-driven bonuses and salary increases.” She believes she would still have her job if she were not White.

In April 2018, Phillips called the police on two Black men, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, who were waiting to conduct a meeting at a Starbucks in Philadelphia.

Nelson and Robinson arrived at the Starbucks at 4:35 p.m. to meet with a friend about a real estate deal on April 12. The meeting was scheduled for 4:45. After they walked in, Phillips told them they needed to purchase something or leave.

Two minutes after they arrived at the shop, Phillips called the police. Records show that the 911 call was placed at 4:37 p.m. When police arrived, they did not think that they were suspects.

“As soon as they approached us, they just said we had to leave,” Nelson said during an interview with “Good Morning America.”

“There was no question of, ’Was there a problem here between you and the manager? [or] ‘What happened?’”

The police did not explain why Nelson and Robinson were arrested and did not read them their Miranda rights. Instead, they were placed in the back of a police car simply for being Black.

After a video of the incident went viral, protests erupted at the Starbucks, and the manager was removed from working at that location. Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson publicly apologized to the two men. In a move to “fix” the issue, Johnson decided to close 8,000 Starbucks in May so workers could receive racial bias training.

In regards to Phillips’ lawsuit, a Starbucks spokesman told NBC News, “We do not believe there is any merit to it, and we’re prepared to present our case in court.”

No, you got fired because you were stupid and that's the same reason you'll lose your lawsuit.

That dude should be in prison. It wouldn't matter what she called him. Once you get physical, you lose the moral high ground. For a man to body slam a woman like that is absolutely disgusting. Yes, more disgusting than any racial slur and a crime.
