Tavern at Phipps Plaza was the scene of a near riot on Friday night, as Trump supporters wearing red 'MAGA' caps chanted "Latinos for Trump!" inside the restaurant.

David J. Johns, executive director of the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC), was one of the diners trying to enjoy a peaceful dinner when the Trump supporters began chanting.

Johns took to his Instagram account and posted a photo of one of the demonstrators.

"THIS is what a confused, self hating racist looks like," he captioned the image. "So we're clear he's not white white white. He probably doesn't benefit from policies designed to protect white supremacy but he’s committed to trolling (and I’m contemplating spending the night in jail). This will be the last time I patronize @tavernatphipps, I doubt I will visit @shopphippsplaza because this is beyond absurd! #FreeJT #SickOfTheStupidity."

Johns added: "They're chanting "Latinos for Trump", which is how we know white supremacy again!"

Towanda Braxton, star of Braxton Family values, saw Johns's post and commented "What?"

Johns replied: "sis. You might have to bail me out on Monday".

Johns told Sandrarose.com that he spoke with management at Tavern, but he was told there was nothing they could do - even though restaurant policy prohibits wearing hats inside the restaurant.

NBJC is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS. NBJC's mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ bias and stigma.

President Donald Trump kicked off his reelection campaign this week with a MAGA rally in Orlando, Florida. The Hispanic vote helped Trump win Florida's electoral votes in the 2016 presidential elections.

As I type this post I struggle with enveloped by a deep sense of frustration and anger, the result of appreciating that too often Black people are disempowered and without recourse. I’m writing this post to communicate to everyone who knows and loves me that you should miss me with the politics of respectability. If they worked we wouldn’t be here. I don’t expect you to understand my righteous rage but I won’t tolerate you questioning it. I know that the universe is testing me, that I am equipped to not only deal but to overcome. My enemies will exist as footstools but there’s still a journey to be endured and it feels like torture. This post is a request for clarity and a reminder to the ignorant racist trolls that your “president” will get you fucked up because some of us have bail money. #MessWithMe #RightOne #LetsGetFree #VideoOfTheDay #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

    And bout to be on the first things smoking round 4:30am Saturday and Sunday morning headed to “camp”.

  • Renee26

    I wonder if the guy said something to him

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I spoke with David on the phone. He said he complained to the manager at Tavern, who told him there was nothing he could do about the Trump supporters harassing diners. Tavern is the same restaurant where I spotted a roach crawling up the wall near my table. They practically threw me out of the restaurant when I complained about their pest control problem.

  • the guest

    Latinos for Trump is Latinos way of saying Latinos want to be seen and accepted as white. What’s wrong with being Latino? Better learn to love being Latino because Latinos will NEVER become white in America.

  • Nina Ross

    Spanish comes from SPAIN those people are european/white

  • Nina Ross

    Spaniards ARE white

  • TamG

    If I was a legal immigrant, I’d be the loudest one calling for a wall. No way it’s fair I pay my debt and wait in line and these ingrates get to jump the fence and invade communities, roads, schools, etc without permission.

    This NBC guy is an idiot. Boycott the restaurant for what again? Because someone with a different political view than you ate there? STFU Azz clown. Dumb people me sick.

  • TamG

    How did they “harass” the diners?

  • TamG

    No. It’s their way of saying “we don’t have a problem with enforcing immigration law.”

    I don’t get how this NBC guy got “self hatred” out of that. Trump has never maligned “Latinos.” Why do people keep lying saying he did? Are people illiterate or something?

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Latinos for trump getting deported too so keep chanting. I seen 4 with my own eyes get dragged away by ice in la crying their eyes out. Keep chanting lmao

  • A D N

    So, now the "peaceful" and "non-confrontational" MAGA folks are disrupting patrons' dinner outing to chant for Trump? Why are they such a provoking anger group? It's well known there are adverse groups and positions on many issues, but there should be places one should be subjected to listening to political chants. I always say; there is no peace until everyone experiences pain, then a truce will be called.

  • Bree

    When will it end?!

  • Renee26

    Ok that explains the "boycott" but not posting that particular guy and blasting him

  • Hazel

    Can't wait till Sunday. Fortunately Atlanta is one of the cities targeted for raids.

    A QUIET dinner at Tavern at Phipps????
    Why is this greasy man acting as if that pub is a nice restaurant to have dinner? The waitresses wear SKIMPY outfits and the place is LOUD on ANY given night.. Mustve been that guys first time there?

    In regards to the issue he is posting about... Its not that serious! Folks LOVE trolling.. NO ONE should be stunting ol Trump ESPECIALLY not enough to RUIN a night of buttered honey croissants and parmesean crusted shrimp over angel hair pasta???

  • EMILY POST

    Sooo because they are chanting Latinos for Trump he equated this to???? What exactly? Latinos can be for Trump.
    What in the hell Is wrong with black people. LOL Did he really say self hating...

    Its more interesting he is over the National" Black " Coalition for Justice but he has every group included in that. So he is really in a commission for the Alphabet crew but he is masking it by putting the word black in front of it. ....
    soooo. the NBJC's mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ bias and stigma. You mean the mission is to use Racism as a cloak but your really up representing the LGBTQ community which is fine but stop fronting on the black race with sexuality politics. IF you representing your bedroom just do it but stop it with all this fake as throwing Black ish in your drama. I still Dont understand why he was getting mad at the extra rowdy Hispanics for Trump because there are Hispanics for Trump. LOL did he really say Self Hate.
    ICE is Frozen water in Border states. I want to see ICE arrest someone.

  • Dun Dilly

    according to the CDC in ATLANTA: HIV+ rates among gay BLK men are 50+...WORSE than many 3rd world countries ... this dude should probably spend his clout chasing elsewhere instead of bothering the Latinos.

  • Pamela

    You sound stupid

  • Pamela

    Have you been back since that day?

  • PrettyMeka08

    Nope. Spaniards are white. Spain is in Europe. They are white just like the French.

  • PrettyMeka08

    I was listening to CNN on drive home yesterday. They had a black woman going hard for open boarders. I hate that the networks try to place people into a box. Not everyone from a certain race thinks the same or votes the same. I didn’t understand why she was arguing so intensely for open boarders when it doesn’t benefit American citizens.

  • lovelygamour

    just like in the northeast every white person tries to claim italian even though they are polish or something: the same thing happens in south america. after world war 2 a lot of nazi sympathizers went to south america to escape. after world war 2 a lot of europeans went to south america because they couldnt afford europe anymore. so, these latinos for trump are probably just regular white people.

    gizelle budchen is 100% german. shakira is like turkish and something. if you watch 90 day fiancee you will notice that paloma isnt hispanic. a lot of those south Americans on that show are european who grandparents moved to chile or brazil.

    when castro took land and redistributed it in cuba that land was mostly own by europeans who horded the wealth from the natives

  • PrettyMeka08

    Just like the Pope is from South America but is of Italian lineage.

  • Eileen

    Open boarders will be the death knell for the black community. There is absolutely no benefit to us!

  • Eileen

    The tavern at phibbs is basically trash. At the bar they were throwing around toliet paper do they still do that? Who is this lawyer or whoever he is trying to be the saviour of sexually confused people and throwing in race to make it appealing. I am so tired of all of this crazy identity politics leftover from that bullsh-t of 44! Go away?

  • Eileen

    Thank you

  • GuestSTAR

    To some extent the border is already open. I've literally seen Mexicans at the San Diego Border WALK from Tijuana into the United States, lunches and thermoses in hand to work here. When their shift is over they walk right back to Tijuana, Mexico. Happens everyday, all day.

  • the guest

    Latinos are using disassociation politics to circumvent their oppressed status to try to gain white inclusion in order to oppress black people. What Latinos are doing is aspirational racism, selfish, mean, and desperate. Latinos need to is focus on their liberation and empowerment and they don’t need to become white, identify with white racists, or use black people as leverage to become white as short cuts to overcoming their oppression.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Yea Da Tavern been off my list of places to go didn’t like the energy or the service there. I walked in ready to spend and tip goodt all the white waitresses just looked at me I wasn’t offered a place to sit or even greeted I decided to leave and go to Yebo had some good food and good drinks. As far as this guy chanting I guess he never heard there’s a time and place for everything that was not the time or the place. I think a lot of folks are doing this stuff for attention and to provoke violence so they can then play victim or have an excuse to try and kill once they have been confronted or attacked. As far as the lgbtq guy he is a champion for rights of that community and the freedom for ppl to choose who they want to be and be with without being attacked like it or not these trumps supporters and others have the right to protest and free speech if we start trying to impose on their rights and take away their rights we will be doing the same thing to ourselves. Me personally I live by this code you can talk all the fu** you want but don’t put yo hands on me. Let these attention seeking folks be ppl quit entertaining them.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Oh but they trying they are even mating at a high rate with whites I see a lot of the women with white men and having kids once they mix you can’t tell the difference most of them have the look the only way you know the difference is when they speak. I also see a lot of the low income white females getting with and having babies with the Latino men for them that’s a financial upgrade from the white trailer park males they have to choose from.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    ??? ? ? ? that’s because bug lives matter too. You should have pulled your chair out and set a place for the roach.

    Maybe this is his way of saying we support Trump and will help him win the election again if he stop deporting our friends and family members

    When the installed is removed and prosecuted to the full extent of the law, for high treason it comittedin 2016 in the USA.

  • Yup, I said it

    The Latinos are so racists. Even the black Latinos don't claim black. 70% of the island of Puerto Rico self identify as "white" in the census counts. The Latinos are gonna have to learn not to be uncle Toms, just like blacks learned. Being "White" is about more than skin color, but the Latinos will learn. Blacks have known this for centuries, that "1 drop" rule is ingrained in white culture. Unfortunately Blacks will accept any damn body.

  • Alextra Ballard

    ICE staring their Immigration Raid here Sunday...Miami is apart of the 10 city “Crackdown”...first of all why is/was it being broadcast everywhere. They got the heads up. These folks dunT got fair warning,therefore they finna scatter like roaches and get deep down in the trenches. Secondly is there a reward? Lastly, I dew believe this is apart of trumps re-election campaign. This is probably the only way he can win...folks want these illegals Gon

  • Indies beauty

    A lil off topic but this is ridiculous. Why the hell did he even come to Orlando this week? My county votes blue only. Specifically in east Orlando where we have UCF, Full sail and Valencia. Just driving through the city, you see artwork with Orlando pride all over and colorful murals, we dont do trump here.

  • Jethro

    Was anyone able to find an actual "Latino?"

    Oh well! I'm voting for him again. Life is good and he's done a great job!

    Lmfao... U just threw that "Is there a reward?" in there and went on with your rant. ???

    You know in this day and age twiiter fingers is as far as some ppl are brave enough to go as far as confrontation.

  • Dowoop

    I read what he was for and all I was thinking is this is more for alphabet gang, he just threw black in there cuz he's black.

  • Idare2bdiffrnt

    What was racist about this?? That word is going to be rendered completely powerless, meaningless... if it is continue to be used when someone of a different race says or doesn’t something you don’t like.

    ????? at “he’s done a good job”. Life is good for me regardless of who is in office. He’s a petulant tactless lazy ignorant thin skinned racist opportunist bastard. He’s ruined the supreme court and our relationships with other countries. But I do love that he’s trying to toughen our immigration laws. And I did get a tax break this year. However, I’m not voting for his raggedy ass.

  • Janice Collins

    That’s why he came. To get the conservatives out. Not just republicans or Democrats. Isn’t you governor and both senators republican. He also won 49% of the vote. The I say there’s a very good chance he will take the state.

  • Janice Collins

    I doubt any of these folks are on the ICE list to apprehend. They are only searching for people with removal orders. Nope these folks were either born here or did it the right way( which happens)

  • Janice Collins

    Actually they did. There is no proof that he actually said this, but more to the point, Cuba is not a free country and people are dying trying to make it to America.

  • Janice Collins

    Not only that, but nearly every function at OPM is conducted at each individual federal agency. The probably needs to. Be an OPM, but on much smaller scale. They can us that money to hire personnel in the direct customer contact fields like IRS, SSA, ICE

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. It's hard for me to imagine him winning reelection in 2020 if he doesn't win Florida. I think minority turnout will be key if the Democrats are going to win Florida.

Either or

  • Janice Collins

    Lot of minorities are for trump. I can’t think of any candidate that would do better then him in Florida right now. There are some black candidates but some of there’s views are more liberal than the traditional African American voter in the south can align with. Even Obama and Clinton has to change it up for Florida. Clinton May have waited too late which is why she lost the state.

  • Janice Collins

    Are we can use a little common sense and that first chapter in the civics book from 9th grade and say it’s impossible and has never happened. The only way ICE knows your name is if you told them. If a warrant has been issued for your arrest ( failure to self deport) it’s like any other arrest warrant. If you had a warrant to police would allow you the same opportunity to turn yourself in before dragging you anywhere. Lastly guess where they go. ICE detention. They don’t take them immediately to the border or airport. They have appeals right and most are just given a stay and released with a court date.

    Idiots on the left think certain groups are supposed to be monolithic and that's because they are not free in the mind.The "shame" game is not working....Left wingnuts need to stop their tantrums and seek help for their condition of TDS.

    i just want to address the stats. black people as a whole have to stop being polite. all of this "he looks well' is garbage. everyone needs to get tested a few times a year at first and then get tested yearly or twice a year. its free at most health center. I would get tested everytime there was a free gift. so everyone its just childish to not get tested. you can do it with using a name. if you share close quarters with people you should get tested.

  • lovelygamour

    I have had to pay more since trump has been in office. i have to pay more for security issues but trump hasnt really affected me at all. his supporters are the ones struggling. they are just too stupid to see it. I see more older white people in low wage jobs or reduce hours jobs. they dont get it! bush1, clinton, and obama really cared about them. trump doesnt care about poor/middle class white people. they are getting poorer under him. I see more young black guys working good entry level jobs since trump took office. so, all these white alt-right people need to get some skills or fall behind. the truth is most older white people arent qualified for pension401k jobs.

  • lovelygamour

    hahaha. like the mexican illegal who got deported but he campaigned for trump. his wife is white. the wife knew he was illegal but thought "he wouldnt be deported because we are known in the community". just stupid and arrogant. I actually agree with deporting him. the man owned a business for 20 years and never tried to get legal.

  • Indies beauty

    I think the problem with Florida is that we are split. We have a young vibrant population and we also have the aging. This is reflected in every election because we always vote down the middle. There is some people for trump but just as much against him, we are a red state but barely. However, orange county is blue.
