    When something questionable happens it usually is paid administrative leave. Paid vacation which allows them to catch up on Netflix at home.

    Cops sure have fantastic defense lawyers. The cop's attorney here in Chicago has been lobbying the prosecution and judge for a change in venue but the judge Friday said he was fed up with the defense's delay tactics. (Jayson Van Dyke) cop vs. Laquan McDonald unarmed teen

    Cops arrested 2 black men for being in a starbucks.

    washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/201...

    "The two men were taken to a police station, where they were fingerprinted and photographed, their attorney Lauren Wimmer told The Washington Post on Saturday. Her clients, who declined to be identified, were released eight hours later because of lack of evidence of a crime, she said, adding that the Starbucks manager was white."

    Heaven knows black folks just hate coffee. snark/

    And so, the Starbucks CEO has ordered his stores closed for a day for race sensitivity training.

    I have a problem with that. You cannot train away the racism which in engrained into a person which probably began in childhood development.

    Just as you cannot take a white supremacist sympathizer like Donald Trump and turn him into a person who loves Latinos, blacks, Muslims, and other races and religions. Once racism has been taught, it is very difficult to get rid of, it's always there. One could ask Donald if he is a racist, and he'll swear that he isn't, but deep down inside, we know different.

    Glad you brought up the coffee kings. There's another viral video that shows a man who asked to use the restroom and was denied for not making a purchase. A white man walked out of the restroom and he asked him if he had made a purchase. He had not. On Facebook the term Negrophobia was used to comment on the wide spread problem. Without smartphone videos and social media, it would would all be swept under the rug. It makes me angry and I am 100% white. The silence of millions is the reason it persists still. Those who are not affected can still speak to the unfair injustices. Many more should.
