Donut Twitter Has A Hole In It

Phoenix Calida of Berniegressive Twitter has had some reasonable and nuance back and forth action with very level headed and even handed partisan Democrats.

Aside from that, we have a fast blast of news and comment to work around it.

NORTH CAROLINA DOMINO’S WORKER WHO TYPED N-WORD ON ORDER FIRED, SAYS HE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND CUSTOMER’S NAME

A North Carolina Domino’s employee was fired after a customer came to pick up her order and saw a racial slur on the order board in place of her name.

Myasia Nelson told WFMY that she placed a carry-out order for two pizzas and a side of wings at a Domino’s in Burlington, North Carolina, on Monday night. When she was waiting for the food to be ready, she noticed on the order board that instead of her name, the n-word, spelled “NIGA,” was displayed.

The employee, who has not been named, told his supervisor, Junior Snyder, that there was no ill intent in the word he chose. He claimed that he simply couldn’t understand what she was saying. Snyder explained that the employee recounted the story to him and since he didn’t know how to spell her name, he just typed anything in to the order system.

However, Nelson wasn’t convinced it was a simple mistake. She claimed she was only asked to give her name once and Myasia, which is the name she gave the employee for the order, sounds nothing like the word he chose.

“Racial discrimination. That’s what I feel like it is because if it were anyone else they would have never done that,” Nelson told WFMY.

By Tuesday, Snyder had fired the employee because regardless of whether the incident was a mistake, he explained to WFMY that what happened doesn’t reflect the company’s values.

“You can’t work for your company,” Snyder said he told the employee. “We’re not like that.”

Although the Burlington Domino’s is an independent franchise, corporate fully supported Snyder’s decision to fire the employee and commended him for doing it immediately after he was made aware of what transpired.

“As you might expect, this behavior is repulsive and intolerable and has no place in our brand,” Domino’s told Newsweek. “There are more than 15,000 Domino’s units in 90 countries around the world – we are a diverse, inclusive brand and there is no tolerance for that behavior.”

Snyder apologized to Nelson and he explained to WFMY that moving forward, all he can do is ensure it doesn’t happen again, train employees and “make sure everyone understands we don’t tolerate this.”

Aside from the anger that Nelson felt on behalf of herself, the experience took on a deeper meaning when she viewed it through the lens of being a mother.

“I don’t want my daughter growing up being called the words that they wrote about me or being called any type of name,” she told WFMY.

Domino’s also offered Nelson a $50 gift card, but she refused it on the basis that $50 is not worth what she had to endure.

The mother of a former eighth-grade student has filed a $300,000 lawsuit against Portland Public Schools, claiming a substitute teacher whacked the boy on the head with a clipboard and called him the n-word.

Lamar Warren is African American and was a 13-year-old student at Martin Luther King Jr. School at the time of the alleged assault in October 2017, according to the lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

Philly trans community marches against violence

TIM TAI / STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER

Philadelphia’s transgender community members and supporters rallied Saturday afternoon in LOVE Park and then marched down Broad Street, packing more than a block, chanting for justice, carrying signs — “Trans is beautiful” and “Trans women are women” and “Trans men are men, period” — in a bid to shine a light on violence and discrimination.

The march, held annually since 2011, has taken on a particular urgency this year in the wake of the death of Shantee Tucker, 30, an African American trans woman who was gunned down Sept. 5 on Old York Road near Hunting Park.

Boy Accused In School Stabbing Repeatedly Asked Out Victim, Police Say

Luther, OK (The Oklahoman) — A teenage girl who was stabbed at Luther High School last week told investigators the boy accused of stabbing her had repeatedly tried to start a romantic relationship with her.

About 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 16, students were gathered for an assembly in the school’s auditorium when a 14-year-old boy stood up and repeatedly stabbed a 14-year-old girl. The boy and the victim were friends, but Luther police Chief David Randall said the boy wanted a relationship.

“There was one point where he approached her in reference… to try to have some type of relationship, to which she said she wasn’t interested in it,” Randall said the victim told him during an interview earlier this week.

Parents Outraged After Their Son Is Punished for Referring to His Teacher as ‘Ma’am’

Teretha Wilson and McArthur Bryant raise their 10-year-old son Tamarion to call their elders “ma’am” and “sir,” but that politeness got the fifth grader in trouble from a teacher at his preparatory school.

The North Carolina parents told ABC-13 that they had Tamarion moved to a different classroom at North East Carolina Preparatory School in Tarboro after his teacher punished him for calling her “ma’am.”

Tamarion had returned from school on Tuesday with a punishment he had to have signed by his parents. He went on to explain that he had continued to repeatedly call his teacher “ma’am” despite her requests not to, and was told to write the word “ma’am” written on a piece of paper four times per line on both sides as a penalty.

“He had a look on his face of disappointment, shame,” Bryant told ABC-13. “At the end of the day as a father, to feel kind of responsible for that…knowing that I have been raising him and doing the best that I can, it’s not acceptable.”

Wilson went on to explain that Tamarion had recently been in the hospital for seizure-related activity, and had been suffering from memory loss and hallucinations.

Adding to their anger was how the teacher allegedly told Tamarion during the encounter that “if she had something, she would have thrown it at him” — which the parents said the teacher admitted when they met with her and the principal the next day.

“It wasn’t right,” Wilson told to ABC-13. “It wasn’t professional. As a teacher, it wasn’t appropriate.”

Reps for North East Carolina Preparatory School did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, but told ABC-13 in a statement, “This is a personnel matter which has been handled appropriately by the K-7 principal.”

Coming up at 4:30 and 6 on @ABC11_WTVD: Parents of a Tarboro 5th grader are upset after their son got in trouble for calling a teacher “ma’am” against her wishes. In response, they say the teacher made him write the word repeatedly on a sheet of paper

Though Tamarion will moving to a different classroom, Bryant is warning other parents of this sort of behavior. “If it happened to my son, I’m pretty sure if not a week, a day, a month, a year, it will occur to somebody else’s child,” he said.

And as for Tamarion’s punishment, it was returned to the teacher, signed as promised — but with a second sheet of paper attached, the family said: Tamarion, writing the definition of the word “ma’am.”

Texas Man Accused Of Shooting Female Drivers Out Of Hatred For Women

A Texas man is behind bars on suspicion of shooting at female drivers repeatedly over the past several months in Katy, a town west of Houston, local media has reported.

Harris County prosecutors believe the man, 29-year-old Nicholas D’Agostino, was acting out of hatred for women and female drivers, citing several hate-filled social media posts.

 

“He rants and rambles about female motorists and how incompetent they are, and how their sole purpose in life is to give birth to male children,” a Harris County prosecutor said in court late Thursday, local news outlet KHOU 11 reported.

Former Police Chief Caught Telling Officers To Frame Black People

A former police chief of Biscayne Park and two officers are charged with falsely pinning four burglaries on a teenager just to impress village leaders with a perfect crime-solving record.

But the accusations revealed in federal court last month left out far uglier details of past policing practices in tranquil Biscayne Park, a leafy wedge of suburbia just north of Miami Shores.

Records obtained by the Miami Herald suggest that during the tenure of former chief Raimundo Atesiano, the command staff pressured some officers into targeting random black people to clear cases.

“If they have burglaries that are open cases that are not solved yet, if you see anybody black walking through our streets and they have somewhat of a record, arrest them so we can pin them for all the burglaries,” one cop, Anthony De La Torre, said in an internal probe ordered in 2014. “They were basically doing this to have a 100% clearance rate for the city.”

In a report from that probe, four officers — a third of the small force — told an outside investigator they were under orders to file the bogus charges to improve the department’s crime stats. Only De La Torre specifically mentioned targeting blacks, but former Biscayne Park village manager Heidi Shafran, who ordered the investigation after receiving a string of letters from disgruntled officers, said the message seemed clear for cops on the street.

“The letters said police were doing a lot of bad things,” Shafran told the Herald. “It said police officers were directed to pick up people of color and blame the crimes on them.”

Beyond the apparent race targeting, the report — never reviewed in village commission meetings — described a department run like a dysfunctional frat house. It outlines allegations that the brass openly drank on duty, engaged in a host of financial shenanigans and that the No. 2 in command during the period, Capt. Lawrence Churchman, routinely spouted racist and sexist insults.

Amid the probe, Atesiano abruptly resigned in 2014. Afterward, there was a stark change in village crime-busting statistics.

During his roughly two-year tenure as chief, 29 of 30 burglary cases were solved, including all 19 in 2013. In 2015, the year after he left, records show village cops did not clear a single one of 19 burglary cases.

Village leaders say they have since overhauled the department, calling the ousted police chief’s actions “appalling.”

Atesiano, 52, has strongly denied the allegations. He pleaded not guilty in the federal case and is now awaiting trial on charges of civil-rights violations. Two of his former officers, Raul Fernandez and Charlie Dayoub, also have pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial. Sources say they are cooperating against their one-time boss.

The federal case doesn’t raise allegations of racial profiling, but records show the false charges were filed against a black Haitian-American teen identified only as T.D. in the indictment. Whether or how many other blacks might have been targets is unclear. State and local arrest records differ somewhat, but of the 30 burglary arrests documented in 2013 and 2014, nearly all were of black males.

But at least one other case is under review in an ongoing investigation: the arrest of a black transient man, Erasmus Banmah, 35, who was charged with five vehicle burglaries on the same day in February 2014. Each was dropped immediately by prosecutors when Biscayne Park cops failed to cooperate, records show.

The former chief argues he demanded diligence from his officers, not illegal actions, His attorney pointed blame at Atesiano’s former underlings for any resulting problematic arrests.

“Encouraging, or even demanding, that public employees raise their performance levels to meet the citizens’ expectations is not an invitation for those public employees to cut corners or falsify documents,” his defense attorney, Richard Docobo, said.

Over the last decade, the department has also seen an officer arrested on charges of holding his wife hostage, a troubled officer sued for excessive force and another officer charged with beating a suspect.

At the helm was Atesiano, a burly and mustachioed officer who was hired in 2008 and worked his way through the ranks while penning a column in the village newsletter warning residents to beware of trespassers and to report people crossing the railroad track.

Atesiano had come to the village after an earlier case involving a doctored arrest record. In 2006, Atesiano, then a sergeant in Sunny Isles Beach, agreed to leave there after investigators discovered he’d forged a man’s name on a notice to appear in court after police arrested him for marijuana. Prosecutors told him to resign or face arrest.

Atesiano left but landed with Biscayne Park two years later and rebuilt his reputation. The village named him officer of the year in 2011. Two years later, he was promoted to replace the retiring chief and he immediately began touting impressive progress in solving home break-ins and property crimes, always a priority issue in otherwise quiet suburbs.

“This year, as we stand, we have a 100 percent clearance rate on burglary cases in the Village of Biscayne Park,” Atesiano declared to hearty applause during a commission meeting in July 2013. “This is the first time I’ve ever known that to happen in any department that I’ve ever been in.”

Many of the officers’ other complaints focused on Churchman, a former Sweetwater cop who was second in command in the village. Like his boss, Churchman also had a history with altered records. Sweetwater had demoted him for allegations of falsifying education records to earn an extra $40 a week. Biscayne Park hired him in 2008.

In the report, seven fellow officers described the captain as Atesiano’s enforcer, belittling cops, threatening them with firing, and bullying them into paying cash fees for working off-duty security gigs and into paying insurance deductibles with cash when they got into an accident in their police cruisers. His disdain for minorities also was “common knowledge,” Officer Harrison told the investigator. The report quotes officers saying Churchman used racial, homophobic and gender slurs.

“The captain has said on several different occasions he doesn’t want any n—–s, f—–s or women b—–s working at Biscayne Park,” Harrison said, according to Scott’s investigative report.
Churchman, through his attorney, denied using such language. In response to questions from the Herald, lawyer Kristi Kassebaum issued a statement quoting her client: “That is a ridiculous lie. That’s just not the way I think and certainly not the kind of language I use in public or in private.”

CVS Apologizes After “Coupon Carl” Calls Police On Black Cutsomer

CVS apologized Sunday to a black customer who said a white manager called the police after deciding that a coupon she tried to use at a Chicago pharmacy was fraudulent.

The manager and a second employee who was involved are “no longer employed by CVS Health,” the company said in a statement on its Twitter account Monday, adding that it had investigated the incident.

The company said that CVS has “firm non-discrimination policies in place to help ensure that all customers are treated with respect and dignity. Profiling or any other type of discriminatory behavior is strictly prohibited.”

The customer, Camilla Hudson, told “Today” in an interview that aired Monday that she was more upset by the way the manager handled the situation.

“I don’t take issue — not then, not now — with him not accepting the coupon,” she said. “It’s how he didn’t accept the coupon.”

Hudson first shared in a Facebook post how she presented the coupon for a defective product to a pharmacy manager last week. The manager told her he’d never seen a similar coupon and believed it was a fraud.

“When I asked for his name and his title/role within the store, he became agitated and rude,” she wrote. “When I pulled out my phone to document what happened and exactly what he’d said to me (AND how he’d said it!) he turned his back and walked away from me.”

A second manager told her that if she didn’t leave immediately, he’d call the police, she wrote. In a viral video that Hudson posted on Facebook, she can be heard confronting a manager, who appears to be describing Hudson to the authorities over the phone.

“Tell them that I will be here when they arrive,” she said. “I have ID and I will share it.”
The manager, who identifies himself in the video as Morry Matson, was a state delegate for Donald Trump in 2016, an aldermanic candidate on Chicago’s North Side and president of the Illinois affiliate of the Log Cabin Republicans, a conservative group that advocates for LGBTQ rights, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which viewed Matson’s no-longer-active campaign website.

In an interview with the LGBTQ newspaper Windy City Times in April, Matson said the affiliate had recently been “reactivated” to remind Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner that “we still need to work on workplace discrimination. It’s still a problem in Illinois. Adoption, health costs, health insurance, keeping the cost of pills down — that’s important in the gay community.”

Matson didn’t respond to a message seeking comment on Sunday.

As with other recent incidents of alleged racial bias, he quickly earned a nickname on social media — #CouponCarl.

CVS said the employees involved in the incident won’t be working at that Chicago location pending the outcome of its internal investigation.

Hudson, meanwhile, said that after three officers arrived, she left the store at their urging. She still wants to know why the situation escalated to having law enforcement called.

“There’s nothing I did or said that would explain why he was interacting with me and treating me in the manner that he was,” she told “Today.”

The Fight For White Civil Rights

 

Less than a year after deadly clashes at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., the main organizer has gained federal approval for another demonstration — across the street from the White House.

The National Park Service announced Wednesday it had approved the “white civil rights” rally for Lafayette Square the weekend of Aug. 11-12. That is the anniversary of the “Unite the Right” protest, which sparked a national furor with its blatant displays of racism. President Trump amplified the controversy when he initially failed to condemn the white supremacists.
