Wow simple wow is all I can really say after watching these videos. Starbucks has blew up over the years and turned into a household name due to Dunkin Donuts Sub par coffee & average at best service. We have all turned to Starbucks.
Well not everyone but a good majority of people prefer them due to the taste & awesome service they are known for. It seems that service has just went out the window last week for minority customers. I personally won’t be buying from them & I’m not asking anyone else to stop just watch these clips & you be the judge. Not a good look for overpriced coffee smh.
I’m sure most of you are aware of what’s been going on in Ferguson over the last week unless you live under a rock or you just don’t care. A cop killed a un armed black teenager in a suburb and people want answers because the killing doesn’t look justified an this type of stuff has been going on there for years with cops targeting minorities check the charts below. This is bigger than race all types of civil rights have been violated I would advise y’all to read up in the mean time check this video out.
Once again the police shoot an un armed black teen this has become an epidemic. As a father I don’t even feel comfortable sending my son in society because it’s like they get a free pass to get away with this stuff. Justice doesn’t exist and when it does it comes with stipulations such as a short sentence. Here is some pictures below from the chaotic scene people have been protesting since this morning so it will only get worse please read up on this.
This is a sad story but doesn’t suprise me racism is alive and well in our country still after all we have been through people still have so much hate in them. By the looks of this situation this town doesn’t have many minorities I hope someone is charged with this crime and pray for his wife & kids.
I remember when this story first broke this is ridiculous these laws need to be reviewed people are taking the law into there own hands & using loopholes to benefit them. I hope in this case the family gets justice.
yesterday morning in ‘The Business of Fashion’, journalist Jason Campbell highlights in his op-ed the fact that ‘Vogue Italia’ openly has an entirely separate section for documenting all things black and in fashion. some people could say this is an effort to give “special” focus and attention to an underrepresented segment of the fashion industry(-_-+), Campbell hones in on how this form of presentation separated street style images of stylish black men and women in a section of the site’s “Black Blog” called “Vogueista Black.”
the fashion industry is no stranger to criticism on its sometimes blatant displays on racism, body discrimination, and even borderline slave-like mannerisms(http://fashionista.com/2014/01/model-in-china/), so instead of continuing to harp on those truths Campbell chose to rationalize Vogue Italia’s actions with a broader perspective, he said, :
“At the crux of the matter is the fact that, at fashion companies, senior decision-makers and their teams are largely composed of white people and there is zero initiative to change the status quo. As the lack of racial diversity continues to plague the industry, misguided decisions, such as the one to launch ‘Vogue Black’ and segregate coverage of stylish blacks, are often taken because fashion’s boardrooms and editorial meetings are missing people who could bring alternative perspectives.”
Campbell also makes mention the efforts of people like Riccardo Tisci, Umit Benan, and the Diversity Coalition to eradicate defining difference by skin color.
Over this past weekend in Sanford Florida the new black panther party has gathered together to fight back over the recent death of a Florida teen. Im Sure you have heard about this by now if not I’m guessing you must live under a rock or only watch Fox News which gives this subject minimal airtime. George Zimmerman gunned down 17 year old Trayvon Martin earlier this month for walking in a white neighborhood and wearing a hoodie. If you listen to his 911 tapes you can here him say “I’m tired of them getting away with this” them obviously meaning black people he continues watching the teen and following him calls the cops on him then the cops tell him stop but he does like a renegade chases the child down & shoots him in the back. This happened going on a month ago no arrest has been made George Zimmerman has gone on with his life while the Martin family has suffered. Mikael Mohammed the leader of the new Black Panthers put out a 10000 reward for his capture Dead or alive this situation is only going to get worse racism has only gotten worse in America minorities are getting gunned down by the people who are suppose to be protecting us and it continues to get overlooked an they get a slap on the wrist. It’s time we take a stand being non violent hasn’t worked so if the police aren’t going to arrest him he deserves what’s coming to him. Below is too videos from the rally.
