The mother of a white teen who was taken away from her black legal guardians by Houston police officers is questioning the actions of the police.
13-year-old Landry Thompson, from Oklahoma, was in the care of her two legal guardians, who are black, when she was snatched by police after the trio arrived in Houston for dance training.
Dance instructor Emmanuel Hurd, his boyfriend, Josiah Kelly, and Landry were tired after a long day at the dance studio. The trio stopped at a gas station to get directions back to their hotel. After dozing off in the car, they awoke to find the car surrounded by police.
Oprah Winfrey Awarded Highest Civilan Honor Just Days After Accusing Americans of Disrespecting Obama Because He’s Biracial
How do you earn the highest civilian award offered by the White House? Just accuse all white Americans of being racists.
Critics are saying it’s no coincidence that President Obama honored Oprah with the Presidential Medal of Freedom just days after she accused white Americans of disrespecting Obama because he is half black.
It took 5 years for President Obama to honor Oprah with any type of award after she threw her powerful support behind him during the 2008 presidential elections.
You kids know that your auntie loves buxom women who work hard for the money. So I enjoyed Lilly Allen’s new music video for her hit song “Hard Out Here (For a B*tch)”. But I may be alone in my appreciation of Allen’s video for the work of art that it is. Other black female bloggers are slamming the British pop star’s video as “racist” and “objectifying” black women.
Devin Barnes of Tennessee says he is receiving threats after Red Lobster waitress Toni Christina Jenkins posted a photo of his receipt on her Facebook page.
A 19-year-old Red Lobster waitress was suspended with pay after she posted a customer’s receipt on her Facebook page.
Toni Christina Jenkins said she was in the middle of her shift at a Nashville, Tennessee Red Lobster when she began serving two “extremely rude” customers. She said the customers ordered $45 worth of take out food, but they did not leave a tip.
Jenkins, who is in nursing school, told Mail Online she picked up the receipt and saw the words “none” and “nigger” scrawled on it.
So she did what any other attention-seeker would do: she posted the receipt on her Facebook page.
A federal judge has ruled that workplace use of the derogatory term ‘nigger’ is illegal, even if uttered by black people.
Brandi Johnson, 38, was awarded $250,000 in compensatory damages in a lawsuit brought against STRIVE agency founder Rob Carmona (pictured above) for calling her the N-word during a taped “four-minute nigger tirade”. Johnson said Carmona was angered over her inappropriate workplace attire and unprofessional behavior.
STRIVE prepares young black people with the tools necessary to enter the workforce. STRIVE’s website notes that the agency has helped nearly 50,000 people find jobs.
A Swiss boutique clerk is outraged that media mogul Oprah Winfrey embellished their encounter after she lodged racism allegations against the high end Switzerland boutique.
The Trois Pommes sales assistant said she felt “powerless” and “in a cyclone” after Oprah went on American TV to say she was a victim of racism. Oprah said the saleswoman refused to show her a $35,000 handbag because it was too expensive for her.
But the saleswoman emphatically denied the incident went down the way Oprah said it did. Trudy Goetz, the shop owner, called the accusations “absurd.”
