'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."

Black Exotic Dancers Demand Better Treatment With ‘Stripper Strike’
At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, when strip clubs across the country were shuttering and dancers found themselves abruptly out of work, the Portland, Oregon strip club the Lucky Devil Lounge started a food-delivery service called Boober Eats in order to provide some of its employees work. The concept went viral (and was, in fact, covered by this publication), but local black dancers noticed something odd: its Instagram featured relatively few black dancers.
This wasn’t surprising to some black dancers in Portland, like Cat Hollis and Brianna Cistrunk, who say the club has a reputation for almost exclusively hiring white dancers. “They say they’re a ‘rock ‘n roll club’ [which means] they only hire a certain aesthetic,” Cistrunk says. “It’s an unspoken thing but it’s very well-known among most girls.” This perception was magnified a few weeks later, following the death of George Floyd, when the club posted a (now-deleted) photo on Instagram of #BlackLivesMatter flags festooning the stage. “There was a huge argument that happened in the comments,” says Hollis. She commented: “There are more #BlackLivesMatter signs than there have ever been black butts on that stage.” (Shon Boulden, owner of the Lucky Devil Lounge, tells Rolling Stone the controversy stemmed from “a lot of misconceptions of how our club operates,” though he acknowledged that only two or three of the club’s 30 dancers are black.”If there ever was the idea that we weren’t open to hiring all ethnicities, I guess I’d just want say, yes of course we do,” he says. “In our hiring, maybe it didn’t look like we were.”)

Tragedy of the teen killed by CHOP security revealed: Homeless 16-year-old's friend reveals he drove the stolen Jeep into the 'cop-free' zone for safety and then told her on the phone: 'I don't want to die'
The 16-year-old boy who was shot dead by CHOP security in Seattle was homeless and had just carjacked a Jeep when he was told by a friend to drive to the cop-free zone 'for safety', DailyMail.com can reveal.
Antonio Mays Jr died in a hail of bullets in the early hours of Monday morning and his passenger, a 14-year-old, was critically injured after armed security guards fired on their white Jeep Cherokee, which crashed into the barriers of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) security zone.
Ciara Walker, 25, described the two boys as her 'street brothers' and said Mays Jr and the other teen had been living with her and her husband in a tent at the nearby Cal Anderson Park, located just outside the CHOP zone.
Walker revealed she was on the phone with the boys when they were shot, saying: 'The last thing I heard was a crash and pop pop pop, I’m not sure who said what, but one of them said, '''Ah s**t I’m hit, I don’t wanna die.'' Then the phone went dead.'

Former NYPD commissioner: Mayor de Blasio is 'surrendering' to violent crime
Former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told “Your World” on Monday that he attributes the recent violence in the city and the increase in officers retiring from the police department to Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“I put this all out at the feet of Mayor de Blasio,” Kelly told host Neil Cavuto on Monday.
“He sapped the strength of the NYPD since he took office in 2014,” he added.
Kelly made the comments the day after NYPD officers, responding to a report of shots fired in Manhattan, were met with a large crowd throwing bottles and debris at them.
The New York City Police Benevolent Association shared a video that showed the crowd shouting and throwing multiple glass bottles at a police cruiser. The incident occurred when officers attempted to disperse the group of nearly 500 people in the neighborhood of Harlem.

California Abandons Equality under the Law
Here are some unexpected developments: In Mississippi, Republicans have decided to excise the Confederate flag; in California, Democrats have decided to legalize racial discrimination.
Who had that on their 2020 bingo card?
In 1996, California voters by a substantial margin enacted a constitutional amendment reading: “The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group, on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.” The Democrat-run state legislature has just voted to repeal that amendment.
California had a long struggle with race-based admissions practices in its public universities, most famously with the Bakke case, in which the Supreme Court upheld race-based policies. The 1996 amendment was an attempt to sort that out in the most straightforward fashion, by insisting that the state take no notice of race at all in its policies. That was, for some generations, the great aspiration of most good-hearted Americans, who took it to be the dream of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech.
California Democrats such as Assemblyman Todd Gloria insist that eliminating rules against racial discrimination are necessary to “advance true racial and gender equity in this state.” That is, of course, nonsense. It is, in fact, self-refuting nonsense — the fact that the ethnic makeup of California’s state universities does not reflect the ethnic makeup of the state is not an indictment of colorblind university policies but an indictment of the state’s K–12 education system and other institutions. Racial preferences do not create equality — they camouflage inequality.

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.

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.
St. Louis mayor slammed for broadcasting names, addresses of 'defund the police' supporters
