Black diners ejected from restaurant

A Charleston man who says he and his family were racially discriminated against at a restaurant took his complaints to Facebook, reports Live 5 News. Michael Brown says he and other family members were celebrating at Wild Wing Cafe in North Charleston, when a shift manager asked the raucous party to move to another section because a white customer was uncomfortable.

“She said there’s a situation where one of our customers feels threatened by your party, so she asked us not to seat you in our section, which totally alarmed all of us because we’re sitting there peaceably for two hours,” explains Brown. “Obviously, if we were causing any conflict, we would have been ejected out of the place hours before.”

Just 24 days before the nation chooses a new president, the race for the White House has taken on an ominous tone.

Someone fired a shot at the field campaign office for President Obama in Denver, Colorado on Friday. There were staffers in the office at the time that the shot was fired around 3:30 p.m. said Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez.

A window at the field office was shattered by the gunshot, but there were no reported injuries. Police are reviewing surveillance video, but so far the only lead is a car seen leaving the area. Police aren’t releasing any other details to the media.

Actress Stacey Dash sparked outrage when she tweeted her endorsement for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The former “Single Ladies” star tweeted: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.” She also retweeted a message from Romney’s official Twitter page that read: “Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again.”

Stacey’s twitter followers immediately reacted with controlled rage and indignation. One confused follower wrote “Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates.”

And a staff writer for the blog Hello Beautiful wrote: “If Stacey Dash only knew (which she probably doesn’t), Mitt Romney doesn’t exactly support women’s rights. He plans to “get rid” of Planned Parenthood; an organization that funds health services and counseling for women.”

The blogger conveniently left out the fact that Planned Parenthood is a racist organization that has played a major role in the mass sterilization of black women.

rejected a wedding because the couple was black. Yes, kids, racism still exists in America — especially in the South. This is not news.

Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson planned to hold their wedding in a predominantly white church in Mississippi that they are not members of.

They sent out the invitations to their wedding, but the day before the wedding their pastor informed them that the predominantly white members of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs did not want a black wedding performed there.

“I wanted to make sure their wedding day was a special day,” said Weatherford.”

Pastor Stan Weatherford performed the wedding in another church. In response to the media attention, a few church members expressed dismay.

Sportswear giant Adidas has apologized for “promoting slavery” with their ‘shackle’ sneakers.

Defending the shoe’s designer, Jeremy Scott, as having a “quirky” and “lighthearted” style, Adidas said Monday that it planned to cancel the shoe’s release.

“The design of the JS Roundhouse Mid is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery,” the statement said. “We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace.”

The JS Roundhouse mids featured the LA Lakers’ orange and purple colors with orange cuffs links at the ankles similar to the shackles worn by Africans during the lucrative slavery trade in the south.

Sportswear giant Adidas is catching heat for “promoting slavery” by manufacturing ‘shackle shoes’ trainers.

The JS Roundhouse mids feature the LA Lakers’ orange and purple colors with orange cuffs links that are similar to the shackles worn by Africans during the lucrative slave trade in the south.

The promotional copy for the shoe ads posted on Facebook reads: “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?”

But activists and Facebook users reacted with anger at the premise of Adidas promoting slavery with the shackle shoes.

More than 2000 Facebook users labeled the shoes “offensive” and referred to Adidas as “ignorant” for the insensitive promotional campaign.

Not everyone in New York is excited about rap mogul Jay Z taking a more hands on approach with the NY Nets.

NY Post columnist Phil Mushnick rankled readers with a racist, venom-filled column on Jay Z’s minority ownership of the NY Nets.

In his Equal Time column today, Mushnick wrote the following diatribe about the Nets’ new name, cheerleaders and logo which was designed by the aging rap mogul:

“Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York Niggas? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn Bitches or Hoes,” he wrote.

From NY Mag:

As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new “urban” home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?

Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N——s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B—-hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!

The middle aged couple don’t fit the profile of common criminals. As they fiddled with the lock on the door of the foreclosed trailer their son had just bought, the couple didn’t hear danger creeping up behind them.

Porterdale resident Robert Canoles and his teenage son, Branden, heard noises coming from the property next door Thursday night. Just like George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Florida — the Canoles saw a black man, and automatically assumed he was a criminal.

They grabbed their AR-15 rifles and snuck up behind Jean-Joseph Kalonji, 61, and his 57-year-old wife, Angelica.

“Shut up or I’ll shoot,” Canoles allegedly told the Kalonjis who attempted to explain that their son Benji purchased the property legally.

But when asked to provide paperwork to prove the sale, the Kalonjis didn’t have the papers with them.

Earlier that day, after their son closed on the sale, their real estate agent urged the couple to go out to the 11 acre property and change the locks on the door.

Shocking images of the Swedish Minister of Culture carving into a “nigger cake” are sweeping the Internet. The bizarre incident occurred on Saturday in Sweden when Swedish minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth celebrated a tax funded party for the Stockholm cultural elite, aka cultural elitist snobs.

The cake depicts an African tribal woman’s breasts, abdomen and vaginal areas. The icing is rich chocolate, and the cake is red velvet.

The Minister of Culture is pictured laughing as she performs a clitoridectomy on the cake by slicing into the area of the cake that depicts the genitals.

A performance artist’s head in blackface protrudes from the table. The artist screams each time the cake is sliced. Liljeroth then feeds the cake to the artist.

Makode Linde, the Swedish “performance artist” is also responsible for baking the offensive cake. Maybe it will comfort you to know that Makode is black? See what he looks like after the break.

Two suspects are being held in the shooting deaths of 3 men in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Jake England, 19 (left), and Alvin Watts, 32, were arrested and charged in the homicides. Two other men were injured in the shooting spree which occurred in the span of one hour early Friday. The 2 injured victims are unidentified and remain hospitalized under heavy security. All of the victims were black. The shooters are white.

One of the gunmen, 19-year-old Jake England, reportedly took to his facebook page to express rage that his father was killed by a black man two years ago. But police say there was no connection between the 5 victims and the death of England’s father.

Police Chief Chuck Jordan told CBS News Sunday that the victims “appeared to be totally random.”

The shootings in Tulsa comes amidst reports of increasing race-related incidents around the country.

The media’s self-serving, race-baiting coverage of the Trayvon Martin murder case in Sanford, Florida, might be the trigger for the increase in racial violence and hate crime incidents.
