'We Have A Black People Problem': Facebook Worker Claims Racial Discrimination
A Black Facebook employee is accusing his employer of racial discrimination.
In a complaint filed Thursday with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Oscar Veneszee Jr. said the social network does not give Black workers equal opportunities in their careers.
"We have a Black people problem," Veneszee told NPR. Veneszee is a Navy veteran who recruits other veterans and people of color as part of diversity initiatives at Facebook's infrastructure division. "We've set goals to increase diversity at the company, but we've failed to create a culture at the company that finds, grows and keeps Black people at the company."
Veneszee, who has worked for Facebook since 2017, filed the employment discrimination charge along with Howard Winns, Jr., and Jazsmin Smith — both of whom Veneszee recruited — who said they applied to work at Facebook but had not been hired, they alleged, because they are Black. The claim, they said, was filed on behalf of "all Black Facebook employees and applicants to Facebook."

People Are Calling Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Out for Their Insensitive Posts
For the common non-billionaire — lacking in Gap collaborations, shapewear empires, and private jets to whisk them away from it all — the past several months have been trying, to say the very least.
But for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, this is a time to reflect on their personal wealth. West has a reported net worth of $1.3 billion, while Kardashian is a newly-minted $900 millionaire (though West would beg to differ).
On Monday, both parties decided to take their financial privilege to the timeline. Kardashian began, posting two photos of her 7-year-old daughter North West’s “Freesian horse” (Horse twitter quickly corrected her spelling — it’s Friesian), noting that they have 14 of the breed at their Wyoming ranch. Pricing differs depending on an array of factors, but a single Friesian horse can cost more than $50,000.

Brayla Stone, Black Trans Teen, Killed in Apparent Hit
Local police in Arkansas are treating the death of a 17-year-old transgender Black woman as a homicide. The body of Brayla Stone was found in a car on a walking path in the Little Rock suburb of Sherwood last Thursday, and a person on social media later claimed he was paid five thousand dollars to kill her. Stone is the eighth trans person violently killed in the last seven days.
“Brayla Stone is the 8th transgender person killed in the last seven days,” David Johns, Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition, said in a statement. “Brayla Stone was seventeen years young when someone murdered her because we live in a society where it is not yet explicit that when we say BlackLivesMatter we mean all Black lives, which includes Black trans women and girls.”

A Starbucks barista received nearly $80,000 in tips after being singled out for refusing to serve a customer not wearing a mask
A Starbucks barista who was publicly shamed by a customer after asking her to wear a face mask has received nearly $80,000 in virtual tips after a Facebook post that criticized him went viral.
Lenin Gutierrez, 24, was working his usual shift at a San Diego Starbucks on a Monday morning when a woman -- who was not wearing a mask -- walked in and attempted to place an order, he told CNN.
Gutierrez asked her if she had a face mask -- but before he was even able to show her company guidelines requiring customers to wear one, the woman flipped him off and "started cursing up a storm," he said.
Dean Cain Smokes Hollywood’s Self-Canceling Trend with Just Six Words
In recent weeks, Hollywood and the arts world in general seem to have lost their minds, starting with streaming service HBO Max pulling “Gone With The Wind” — and in just the past few days, as my colleague Jeff Charles wrote, country band The Dixie Chicks changing their name to “The Chicks,” which I agree will surely “end racism forever.”
Now, the trend – which I’m dubbing “pre-emptive self-canceling” – has apparently gone into overdrive, A whole slew of creative people are jumping off the cliff, removing themselves from their jobs for some alleged, race-related transgression, before someone does it for them.
It includes everything from authors who aren’t allowed to create fictional characters… because they’re of a different race…

Marching in solidarity: This year’s Texas Pride events highlight Black queer and trans people
After only a few years of being open about his sexuality, Dom Johnson wanted this summer to be a blowout celebration. For Pride, he fully expected to be part of the rainbow-splattered crowd.
Johnson envisioned himself sitting on the grass with his friends, getting sunburned, going to his favorite gay bar and spending the day “being super gay and celebrating the fact that I’m super gay.”
Instead, he’ll sit at home with a rainbow flag pinned to his shirt and tune in to Dallas Pride’s virtual celebration on his laptop. The event, initially planned for the site of the State Fair of Texas, was moved online because of the new coronavirus, which has infected and hospitalized record-high numbers of Texans this month.
“This is a tragic and traumatic time, and I never want to be the person who tries to create silver linings out of nothing, but things are so dark that the only things I can do at this moment are celebrate the small victories,” Johnson said.
