Mother Denied Service Because Of Her Son’s ‘Athletic’ Clothes Hires Civil Rights Attorney
Following the apology by a Baltimore restaurant, after the manager refused service to a Black woman, Marcia Grant, and her son, Dallas, because of his “athletic” clothes, the mother has retained a civil rights attorney.
Grant and her spokesperson, Michelle Watts, told TMZ that the apology was not sufficient given the longstanding practices of discrimination at other restaraunt’s owned by Atlas Restaraunt Group.
Futuristic 'Micrashell' Suit Aims to Make Concerts Safe During a Pandemic
Thanks to COVID-19, and—more specifically—a delayed mitigation push here in the U.S., the live concert element of the music industry has remained on an effective pause. While many artists and managers were previously holding out hope that postponed dates could be pushed into late 2020, an increasing number of tours originally slated for this year are being canceled outright or being retooled with 2021 in mind.
The multidisciplinary design team at Production.Club out of Los Angeles, meanwhile, has taken up the task of imagining what a protective concert suit might look like.
The Teens Have Spoken: Virginity Rocks
After generations of teens defied their parents, religion and society through daring acts of furtive fucking, today’s teens have flipped the script, declaring virignity the most subversive sexual act of Gen Z.
“Virginity Rocks” is the seemingly chaste new slogan teens across the country are sporting on shirts, hats, lanyards and other merch, and while some bear it ironically, the trend has also caught the attention of pro-abstinence communities.
While the man behind the brand, 27-year-old YouTuber Danny Duncan, told the New York Times he began wearing the shirts as a joke in 2017, he added that he’s glad to see fans have embraced the initially “tongue-in-cheek” slogan in different ways.
Black model at FIT fashion show refuses to wear 'racist' lips, ears
A black model claims she was pressured to wear a “racist," monkey-like costume during a Fashion Institute of Technology runway event in New York City.
The ensemble included large prosthetic ears, lips and overgrown eyebrows.
“As soon as I saw the pieces, I started shaking. I felt it was very racist,” Amy Lefevre, 25, told TODAY Style. “I made it clear that I was uncomfortable.”
Before you go back-to-school shopping, read this report on toxic fashion
It’s back-to-school time, but you might want to think twice before you load up on new outfits at the mall. Green America, a nonprofit committed to social and environmental justice, just studied the chemical practices of 14 American apparel brands. In a report, Green America said four companies—J.Crew, Urban Outfitters, Forever21, and Carter’s—came in last because they all failed to disclose the chemicals they use in their manufacturing.
“These companies had no publicly-available policies about their use of toxic chemicals, and that lack of transparency is a problem,” says Caroline Chen, Green America’s social justice campaigns manager. “Toxic chemicals in textile manufacturing is bad for the planet and workers. And sometimes they remain in the fabric when they are sold, so they could be harming the end consumer as well.” Spokespeople for J.Crew and Urban Outfitters both said that the brands preferred not to comment. We will update this story with any further responses.
This high school banned parents — yes, parents — from wearing leggings
A Texas high school is facing backlash for instituting a restrictive dress code on parents, with critics of the new rules accusing the principal of racism and classism.
Parents of students at James Madison High School in Houston are barred from wearing leggings and hair bonnets when they enter the school.
“Parents, we do value you as a partner in your child’s education,” the school’s principal, Carlotta Outley Brown, said in a memo to her district, according to the Houston Chronicle. “However, please know we have to have standards, most of all we must have high standards.”
The “parent dress code” threatens to turn away parents who show up wearing certain restricted items, including bonnets, pajamas, hair rollers, “sagging pants,” and leggings — clothing more often worn by women. (It’s worth noting that the school is named for a U.S. president who definitely enjoyed wearing super-tight pants that would now be considered leggings.)

Light-Up Sketchers Blamed for 9-Year-Old Boy's Second-Degree Burns
Peyton Foster, a 9-year old boy in New York, has suffered second-degree burns from his light-up sneakers. According to Metro, in the U.K., the burns occurred after his Skechers Skech Rayz leaked acid onto his feet.
The malfunction occurred when the sneakers got wet while he was playing at school. The water caused the shoes to leak acid onto his feet as he walked for the remainder of the day. His mother Sherry did not become aware of the burns until a day later.
"[His feet] were a little bit red, I didn’t think anything of it – maybe that they were cold from playing in the water," she told Metro. "The next day he came home and was really complaining."

Dr. Sanjay Gupta's dire warning on Puerto Rico
In medicine, there is a meeting that takes place behind closed doors, where doctors openly discuss their cases, including any complications or unfortunate deaths.
It's always an indelible experience for me as I watch some fellow physicians defend their actions, while others quickly admit to their mistakes or judgment lapses. No matter the circumstances, though, none of us ever want to hear the term "preventable death."
When that happens, it's an admission of failure and a breakdown of our entire medical system. In all my years of attending these meetings, I've only heard the term on a few rare occasions. Each time, it's caused the room to go stone silent.
Yet in Puerto Rico I have heard the term several times a day, every day, as local doctors, mayors and citizens worry that many of the most vulnerable citizens are at risk, mostly due to a failure of a timely, coordinated response by the authorities, both federal and territorial.

Sharon Osbourne Burns Kendall And Kylie Jenner Over Controversial Shirts
The controversy over Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s questionable new line of T-shirts is now going off the rails on a crazy train.
The Jenner sisters caused a stir recently by reportedly releasing $125 T-shirts with their faces and logos over notable musicians and groups such as 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G. and Ozzy Osbourne.
The pair have since issued an apology and pulled the shirts from stores, but not before talk show host and wife of Ozzy, Sharon Osbourne, had something to say about it.
“Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons,” she wrote on Twitter. “Stick to what you know…lip gloss.”
Say Goodbye to Your Desk
The desk of the future knows you, perhaps all too well.
It's a sit-or-stand desk, of course, but it's outfitted with sensors that learn your habits and preferences through constant vigilance. When you've been sitting too long, a gentle vibration reminds you to stand. Your chair, also lined with sensors, tells the desk you stood up; the desk, which knows your height, adjusts accordingly. All the while, it monitors your keystrokes and mouse clicks, offering you (and your boss) helpful advice on ergonomics—and productivity. Soon enough it knows whether you need a desk at all—a real question at $10,000 per desk per year—or if you can be consigned to the hot-desking pool, where employees are allotted workspace depending on their demands that week, that day, or that hour.
In other words, say goodbye to your last shred of dignity in the modern, open office.
How Bad is it to Eat Really Fast?
One night, your friend goes to a nice restaurant where the food is plated like small works of contemporary art and proceeds to scarf down their filet mignon like it's a post-blaze Crave Case from White Castle. Truth be told, your friend waits too long between meals and eats like a starving stray just about anywhere you go. Aside from making you look bad in front of the judgey maître d', is eating this fast bad for your health?
Before we get to a hard yes or no, here's a mini-lecture on the mysterious workings of the digestive system "from gum to bum," according to Lisa Ghanjhu, an associate professor of gastroenterology and hepatology at NYU Langone Medical Center. The more work you do with your teeth and stomach, she says, the less work needs to be done the further down as your food gets into the large and small intestines where the actual absorption of nutrients takes place.
This Guy Rocked a Romper Around NYC and Everyone Has an Opinion: WATCH
The hottest fashion trend of the summer the Romper, er, RompHim, has hit the streets of New York City and – not surprisingly – it’s polarizing.
QPark hit Washington Heights, Harlem, and Times Square, but didn’t hit the gay neighborhoods of Chelsea and Hells Kitchen, though there’s little doubt some copycat clips will pop up shortly.
