Burger King workers stage strike after trans co-worker dies while working with COVID-19 symptoms
Staffers at the Santa Monica fast food restaurant retaliated after Angela Martinez Gómez died after being reportedly made to work a week even while displaying symptoms. Picketers, as well as the complaint, claimed that the company did not provide staff with protective gear.
One manager at the branch at 1919 Pico Boulevard allegedly blamed the death of Gómez, 42, of Oaxaca, Mexico, on hormone injections, KTLA5 reported.
Managers made Gómez carry on working for a week even while she spluttered, took frequent bathroom breaks and was visibly ill, the complaint said, before leaving her June 26 shift early.

How Lies Of Systemic Police Racism Fuel The War On Cops
The big lie that American policing is systemically racist poses an existential threat to the rule of law, racial harmony, and the social fabric of the United States of America. This dangerously false narrative is a complete fabrication, manufactured and perpetuated by an alliance of loud and powerful voices. These include the mainstream advocacy media, Antifa anarchist and terrorists, Black Lives Matter, woke Hollywood celebrities, university elites, activist professional athletes and many politicians.
No one, starting with the police themselves, wants bad cops. Police who commit crimes cannot be tolerated and must be held accountable. But while the gross police misconduct and killing of Mr. Floyd was terrible, it was also an exceedingly rare incident. Despite this fact, the media, Black Lives Matter, Antifa and politicians claim that American policing as an institution is systemically racist—but this is a proven lie.
The most definitive study to-date, published by the National Academy of Sciences, shows that 55% of all people fatally shot in America by the police are white — more than double the number of black (27%) or Hispanics (19%). And while black citizens make up 27% of the people shot and killed by the police despite making up only 14% of the U.S. population, the racial disparities in police shootings are not caused by racism. Analysis of crime data from more than 200 U.S. counties show the strongest predictor of being shot by the police is not race, but whether the person is engaging in violent criminal behavior. Just this week, the study was retracted by its authors–not because any of the data was faulty, but because they didn’t like how it was being used, to the embarrassment of BLM and their media allies.
The authors of the NAS study concluded that racial disparities in rates of police shootings are entirely consistent with the rates at which individuals of different races are accused by victims of committing violent crimes. Consequently, the greater number of crimes committed by white people in a county, the more likely white people will be shot by the police. The greater number of crimes committed by black people in a county, the more likely it is that black people will be shot by the police. The same is true for Hispanics. As this writer noted in November 2019, if anyone is sincerely looking for a guaranteed way to reduce the number of fatal police shootings for any racial group, the answer is simple: Don’t commit crime.

Black lives matter — so stop supporting policies that have failed Black communities
Although some of the leaders of the best-funded Black Lives Matter organizations seek to move the United States toward socialism and impose other far-left goals (the co-founder of BLM, Patrisse Cullors, acknowledged in a 2015 interview that she is a “trained Marxist”), millions of others who identify with the BLM movement merely want police and criminal justice reforms and greater racial equality.
Improving African American communities is, of course, a noble goal. But it’s exceptionally difficult to fix a problem if one doesn’t identify its cause. And it seems, based on some of the rhetoric from the BLM movement, that many have failed to realize that an important reason why so many Black communities remain impoverished is that liberal politicians have imposed destructive policies on them for decades.

77% of White Voters Approve of Police, Just 26% of Black Americans Agree
While approximately 68 percent of American voters approve of the job the police are doing, according to a new Hill-HarrisX poll, that percentage drops down to 26 when only Black voters are counted. Comparatively, 77 percent of white voters approve of how police are doing their jobs, revealing a racial divide when it comes to how police are perceived.
An online poll of 951 registered voters conducted between June 22 and 23 asked respondents whether they approved or disapproved of the jobs of different workers. These groups included the police, healthcare workers, local politicians, journalists and national politicians.
Overall, healthcare workers had a 94 percent approval rating amongst all voters, local politicians received 62 percent, journalists got 59 percent and national politicians got 56 percent.

Couple Married for 53 Years Hold Hands as They Die of Coronavirus on the Same Day
A couple who were married for more than half a century reportedly succumbed to coronavirus complications on the same day in Texas.
According to CNN, Betty and Curtis Tarpley, 80 and 79, died within an hour of each other on June 18 and held hands during their final minutes together.
The couple's son, Tim Tarpley, told the network that Betty showed symptoms of the deadly disease just before she was taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth on June 9. Curtis was admitted to the same hospital just two days later.
Tarpley said Betty phoned both him and his sister, telling them she was at peace with dying as her condition continued to decline.
"I just screamed, 'No!' I was like, 'I've got too much, too many other things to do in this life that I want to show you, and I'm not ready,'" he recalled to CNN.

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 Black man said he was afraid to walk in his own neighborhood. So hundreds of people joined him
Hundreds of people in a Tennessee man's community are marching by his side after he shared his fears of walking in his neighborhood because he is Black.
Shawn Dromgoole, 29, grew up in the 12 South neighborhood in Nashville, where his family has lived since 1966 when his grandmother bought a home there. They were once surrounded by other Black families, businesses and communities -- and for decades, they felt like they belonged.
But 54 years after his grandmother first moved there, Dromgoole said he felt like he couldn't even safely take a walk in his neighborhood without fearing for his life.
"Yesterday I wanted to walk around my neighborhood, but the fear of not returning home to my family alive kept me on my front porch," he wrote on May 27, in a post on the neighborhood social network app Nextdoor and on Facebook.
Nextdoor Ends Its Program for Forwarding Suspicions to Police
Nextdoor.com Inc., the neighborhood social networking app, is discontinuing a feature that allowed users to forward their posts directly to local police departments, the company announced late Thursday. The move comes as Nextdoor faces scrutiny over its role as a platform for racial profiling, its increasingly cozy partnerships with law enforcement, and after reports that some of its community moderators were removing posts that mentioned Black Lives Matter. But the company is retaining other features that facilitate communication with police through the app, including one that allows direct messages to law enforcement.
“As part of our anti-racism work and our efforts to make Nextdoor a place where all neighbors feel welcome, we have been examining all aspects of our product,” the post read. “After speaking with members and public agency partners, it is clear that the Forward to Police feature does not meet the needs of our members and only a small percentage of law enforcement agencies chose to use the tool.”

Hollywood Celebs Are Praising an Anti-Semitic Hatemonger
I regret to inform you the celebs are at it again.
On Sunday, in lieu of posting Instagram-friendly protest content, discussing White Fragility in a Zoom book club, or recording a mortifyingly tone-deaf PSA renouncing racism, the comedian Chelsea Handler shared a video clip to her 3.9 million Instagram followers. The clip featured Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, during a 1990 appearance on The Phil Donahue Show.
In the clip, Farrakhan attempts to educate the rowdy, majority-white daytime TV audience on the subject of white supremacy.
“I really don’t think you fully understand what has happened to these people you look at as second-class or inferior citizens in this nation,” Farrakhan explains. “Black people who were brought to this country were stripped of their names, language, culture, religion, God, and taken totally away from the history of themselves. Here are 30 million people who don’t wear their own names—they wear your names.”
