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.”

J Cole and Drake

Rapper J. Cole sparked controversy when he said President Obama wouldn’t have been elected if his skin was dark.

In an interview with BET, Cole said ‘colorism’ brainwashes black people to see light skinned people as highly favored in the black community. As an example, Cole said President Obama’s light skin helped him win the election in 2008.

“Barack Obama would not be President if he were dark skin,” said Cole.

“That brainwashing that tells us that light skin is better, it’s subconsciously in us, whether we know it or not… still pursuing light skin women,” said Cole.

Paula Deen support from black celebs

Actress Stacey Dash, NFL player Kris Jenkins and civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton are among the black notables who have come forward in support of embattled tv chef Paula Deen.

Two other Deen sponsors, QVC and Smithfield Foods, are quietly shelving the celebrity chef while they await the outcome of a million-dollar sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Deen’s brother, Bubba Hiers, by a former employee.

Rapper The Game is speaking out against a New Jersey ban that prohibits sagging pants on the world famous boardwalk. The law bans the wearing of pants that sag 3 inches below the hips, exposing skin or underwear.

But Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, is outraged by the anti-sagging law which he compares to slavery.

Like most rappers, The Game is blissfully ignorant to the fact that most decent citizens do not want to see the color and brand of underwear he has on.

Boy Scouts Vote to Admit Openly Gay Boys Yesterday, the Boy Scouts of America voted to admit openly gay boys for the first time. But Pascal Tessier, 16, has mixed feelings about the historic decision. At 16, he is one step away from earning his Eagle Scout — the highest honor for a Boy Scout. He is also openly gay.

“I was thinking that today could be my last day as a Boy Scout,” Tessier said. “Obviously, for gay Scouts like me, this vote is life-changing.”

Tessier is concerned that he will be kicked out of the organization when he turns 18.

That’s because, despite ongoing pressure from gay rights advocates and corporate sponsors, the Boy Scouts of America remains resistant to allowing openly gay scout leaders.

“That one couple hours (between 17 and 18) will make me not a good person,” Tessier said.
