Man Pulls Gun On Four Young Women At McDonalds, Manager Attempts To Throw Victims Out

A white man, who grew impatient as four black girls were paying for their food at a Minnesota McDonalds, harassed the women to the point of pulling a gun on them.

To make things worse, the manager of the McDonalds attempted to throw the women out of the restaurant where the man was waiting for them.

Watch below.

My jaw literally dropped upon watching that video.

According to the website MuslimGirl, the four girls (Farida Osman, Jihan Abdullahi, Amal Mohammed, and Zainab Hassan) had been studying a few blocks away but grew hungry.

Heading down to McDonalds, they ordered their food and wanted to try using their Apple Pay. They weren’t too familiar with the process and after some time gave up trying to use it.

I’ll let MuslimGirl take it from here:

“Jihan heard the man say, ‘You’re probably using EBT’, and she immediately turned to him and said “Just because I’m Black, doesn’t mean I use EBT.”

Electronic Benefit Transfer, or EBT, is an electronic system that allows state welfare departments to issue benefit payments.

In Farida’s vivid recollection, this outrageously racist comment and the ensuing retort was immediately followed by the man “cussing them out,” and advancing aggressively towards the defenseless teens. He continued advancing, forcing Amal to call her friend Amin, who was seated in a booth nearby, for help, “because the man was so close she believed he was going to physically hurt her.”

“Amin and his friends came over and that’s when…the man pulls out the gun,” concluded Farida. The rest of the incident plays out in its entirety on video. The patron is seen aiming the gun at the teens as they scatter, while he swiftly backs out of the restaurant in a cowardly attempt to escape from the consequences of his obvious overreaction. 

The manager of the McDonalds in question

In the aftermath of this horrifying episode, the video depicts a McDonald’s employee screaming at the astonished teenagers, in an expletive-laced frenzy, insisting that they get out of her store. Equally incensed, another gentleman at the restaurant jumped to the aid of the teenagers in distress, vehemently protesting the idea that the victims of this heinous attack should be thrown out into the streets, along with the gun-toting lunatic.

The staff of the McDonalds was reportedly hesitant to call the police, but eventually did after extreme pressure from the frightened young women.

Paul Ostergaard, owner of the franchise in question, responded to MuslimGirl about the incident:

“Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our customers and employees. We take this matter seriously and are working with local law enforcement while we investigate the situation.”

Georgia: School Superintendent Resigns After Multiple Recordings Show Him Repeatedly Using N-Word

The Superintendent of Buford City schools in Georgia, Geye Hamby, has resigned in disgrace after he was named in a racial discrimination lawsuit.
Former school superintendent Geye Hamby

Holy Crap!

The Superintendent of Buford City schools in Georgia, Geye Hamby, has resigned in disgrace after he was named in a racial discrimination lawsuit.

Now, this wasn’t a case of “he said, he said.” Someone delivered TWO recordings of Hamby repeatedly using the N-word over and over.

Listening to the recording, the word certainly comes trippingly over the tongue as though it’s a daily reference for him.

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Hamby had been placed on administrative leave earlier this week, after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the allegations. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, includes recordings in which a person identified as Hamby used racial epithets repeatedly when referring to African-American workers at a construction site.

“(Expletive) that (n-word). I’ll kill these (expletive) — shoot that (expletive) if they let me,” the person identified as Hamby can be heard saying. The person speaking repeatedly refers to blacks as “deadbeat (n-word).”

This fine gentlemen was being paid a reported $340,000 a year to oversee children at four schools in his district.

Any guesses who he voted for in the 2016 election? Hmm?

Trump Introduces Hispanic American Border Patrol Agent: “He Speaks Perfect English”

At a White House event today honoring ICE and CBP, Donald Trump introduced a Hispanic American border patrol agent telling the crowd that the officer “speaks perfect English.”

Now, what does that have to do with anything?

White House Can’t ‘Guarantee’ Trump Has Never Used N-Word

 During a White House press briefing today, Donald Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters she can’t “guarantee” Trump has never used the N-word when asked about former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s allegations about Trump using the racial slur.

Recording Appears To Show Aides Sought To “Spin” Trump’s Alleged N-Word Recording

Donald Trump

I’m not sure what’s more damning – that there seems to be more evidence that a tape exists with Donald Trump using the N-word, or that his supplicants publicly denied a conversation took place (that you can now hear with your own ears) where they discuss how to ‘spin’ the incident.

More @Starbucks Issues: Bathroom Inequality In Action

(Image via screen cap)

More racial issues for Starbucks today as another black Starbucks customer was denied use of a bathroom before he made his purchase.

Brandon Ward requested to use the bathroom before he made his purchase today at the Starbucks located in Los Angeles at the corner of Artesia and Hawthorne, but was denied the code.

But soon after that exchange, a white male – who had not made a purchase yet – was given the bathroom code.

Another one of those things that make you go, “Hmm…”

From Shaun King:

Meet Brandon Ward. He was Starbucks – about to make a purchase – and needed to use the restroom.

They denied him the code.

He then finds a white man, Weston, who came out of the restroom.

He had not made a purchase but they gave HIM the code.

RACISM.

The store manager at the counter didn’t like her picking and choosing of bathroom attendees made public. And I have to point out the store manager’s woeful lack of skill in handling the situation.

What would have been wrong with apologizing instead of escalating the situation? Is that what Starbucks teaches store managers to do?

I don’t want to blame Starbucks as an entire corporation but for this to occur today after the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks that received terrible national attention, it’s hard to believe some company-wide email didn’t go out immediately about handling such incidents.

Why are black men being singled out to be ejected from Starbucks restaurants while, as this video shows, white men are allowed use of the premises without a purchase?

Trumps Sends Dog Whistle: NFL Owners Are “Afraid Of Their Players”

Days after Donald Trump sparked a national controversy over NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem before football games, Trump now sounds a very audible dog whistle saying NFL owners are “afraid of their players.”

From the Washington Post:

President Trump said in an interview broadcast Thursday that NFL owners are “afraid of their players,” his latest provocative comments in a crusade against those who take a knee during the national anthem.

Trump urged the football league to adopt and enforce a rule that requires players to stand during the anthem He said he has talked in recent days to several team owners, who he said are “in a box” on the issue.

“I think they’re afraid of their players if you want to know the truth, and I think it’s disgraceful,” Trump said in an interview broadcast of Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “They’ve got to be tough, and they’ve got to be smart.”

Washington Post sports columnist Kevin Blackistone explains why NFL players are taking a knee, and how Trump has high-jacked the movement for his own uses.

New Hampshire: 8-Year-Old Biracial Boy “Lynched” By Teenagers

An 8-year-old bi-racial boy was hung from a tree by a 14-year-old boy in Claremont, New Hampshire.

Via RawStory:

According to the victim’s grandmother Lorrie Slattery, he was playing with a group of children and teens when they began to taunt him with racist epithets and throw sticks and rocks at him.

Someone stood on a picnic table and the group wrapped a rope from a nearby tire swing around the boy’s throat, then kicked him off the table.

The victim swung back and forth three times before he was able to free himself. None of the teens came to his aid.

NH1.com said Chief Chase refused to state whether the crime was racially motivated.

The incident, which took place on August 28, has locals up in arms as the police have appeared to be more interested in protecting the alleged perpetrator than finding justice for the victim.

Claremont Police Chief Mark Chase refused to comment on the case saying his department is still investigating. He also noted that those involved are juveniles and that they should be “protected.”

“Mistakes they make as a young child should not have to follow them for the rest of their life,” Chase said.

As the boy was being flown to medical treatment, his mother took to Facebook denouncing the attack, “So my son is being flown to Dartmouth after a 14-year-old kid decided to hang him from a tree. I don’t care if this was a so called accident or not. My son almost died because of some little sh*t teenage kids.”

Since Donald Trump’s election, the U.S. has seen a spike in hate crimes.

Miss Texas Trolls Trump At Miss America Pageant Over Charlottesville Racists

Miss Texas Morgana Wood

At last night’s Miss America Pageant, Miss Texas Margana Wood didn’t pause a second when answering a question from out People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle about President Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville debacle.

Cagle queried, “Last month a demonstration of neo-Nazi white supremacists and the KKK in Charlottesville Virginia turned violent and a counter protester was killed. The president said there was shared blame with quote ‘very fine people on both sides’. Were there? Tell me yes or no and explain.”

Wood’s answer was delivered deftly:

“I think that the white supremacist issue — it was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack. And I think that President Donald Trump should have made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and in making sure all Americans feel safe in this country and that is the number one issue right now.”

In the end, Miss North Dakota Cara Mund took home the crown.

Viral Video: Driver Fails To Signal While Turning, Police Officer Approaches Car With Gun Drawn

This video has gone viral overnight with over 100K retweets.

Apparently, the driver was stopped for failing to signal at a turn. With a black man at the wheel, the police officer approached the car with his gun drawn.

He then pointed the gun at the driver.

For failing to signal???

I don’t know a single white person who’s been stopped for failing to signal and had a police officer draw a gun on them.

Clearly the officer repeats over and over “Ok” as his only response for legal reasons with the camera recording.

Americans need to have a discussion with our police offices. There needs to be a real dialogue.

If there was a reason to draw his gun, I’d have preferred the officer explain a rational reason. I’d have preferred he TALK with the driver. I’d have preferred he have a dialogue with the driver.

At least the officer kept calm.
