Woman says she was racially
profiled by Dunkin’ Donuts

New York Post, by Amanda Woods

A black woman says she felt “racially profiled” when she was booted from a Virginia Dunkin’ Donuts after she tried to use the shop’s free Wi-Fi without buying anything, reports said. Tirza Wilbon White was about to use her laptop in the Fairfax store when a woman who identified herself as the owner told her and another man — also a person of color — that they’d have to make a purchase if they wanted to stay. “This is what it means to be black in America,” White said in a Facebook post last week. “I am a regular in this

The provocateur believes "being black in America" grants carte blanche to do as you please any time, anywhere; in this case, loitering with another person to use the wifi and using seats that should go to paying customers.

You can´t use a restaurant as a personal office and not make a purchase. I think that applies to all races.

If she had simply become a paying customer (she could´ve bought a doughnut of color), she would have been as welcome as paying customers not of color.

FTA:"“I am a regular in this location and her employees know me by face."

Simple enough, as Warner Wolf used to say on his DC sportscast some decades ago.."Let´s go to the videotape."

If she is a regular, she should be on security video surveillance....I for one am getting pretty tired of the "race card" being pulled as frequently as it is.

I don´t think so. She may want something for nothing, but she´s speaking for herself.

The Dunkin donuts corporation clarified elsewhere that you can enjoy free Wi-Fi without making a purchase. How they manage their brand is their business (even if we think that´s foolish), and their franchisees agree to abide by that. This owner was stupid for getting this mess started, considering what we all saw last summer at the Starbucks in Philly.

Space is limited to paying customers or else the state and federal tax collectors will be selling the space to a business that can pay business taxes.

What is the price of a cup of coffee for the privilege of a table and free WI-FI.

DD´s corporate response is interesting; apparently anyone who walks in the door is a ´customer´.

That would not have been my definition.

Notice the racial complaint is based upon how the woman ´felt´. That is where we now are in America, it is about what YOU ´feel´ or ´felt´.

Donut shops are not drop-in centers for people who want to use the internet regardless of their skin color. There´s a logic in that notion that seems to escape those who wish to see identity issues in everything that doesn´t go their way. Victimhood and identity politics go hand-in-hand.

A husband and wife in New Hampshire ran an interstate sex trafficking ring, targeting Chinese women and forcing them to sell their bodies while depriving them of food and clothing, federal prosecutors allege. Sou Chao Li and Derong Maio, a pair of 37-year-old Chinese nationals living in Concord, enticed Chinese women to work in the prostitution industry by promising daily earnings of hundreds of dollars at various locations they operated throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont between July 2016 and February, the Department of Justice announced Thursday. “Some of the Chinese females were employed outside the sex trafficking

University of Washington atmospheric scientist Cliff Mass has been called plenty of names, including climate “denier,” but it wasn’t until he came out against the state’s proposed carbon tax last month that he was accused of being a racist. Since then, Mr. Mass said he has been upbraided by the university’s diversity dean and subjected to a faculty “inquisition,” events that have stoked alarm about the threat posed by campus climate-change activism to academic freedom. “I’m really worried about the intolerance that has developed at the university,” Mr. Mass told The Washington Times. “It’s really a minority of graduate students

Investigators weren’t able to find any text messages between fired agent Peter Strzok and former bureau lawyer Lisa Page from their time on the Mueller probe because by the time their phones were recovered, they’d been reset for others’ use, an inspector general said Thursday.

Schools in Brighton have been ordered to teach children as young as eight that people “of all genders” can have periods, as well as to install sanitary waste disposal units in every toilet room. The instructions were included in guidelines published by the local council earlier this month on ‘Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton & Hove Schools’, which assert there is “more work to do across all settings to prevent and reduce stigma related to periods and talking about periods”. Under the subheading ‘key messages’, teachers are told to stress to pupils that “trans boys and

A South Carolina pastor defended buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus as an eighth wedding anniversary present after coming under fire for the purchase. Pastor John Gray, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., came under fire for presenting his wife, Aventer, with the expensive vehicle. A video that went viral, which has since been deleted, showed the pastor surprising his wife with the keys to the luxury vehicle last week, the Charlotte Observer reported. The pastor was criticized by social media users questioning how he could afford the car.

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

To see the Clintons on the first night of their new tour, you had to pass under a row of giant Canadian flags. On the second night, everyone spoke French on the way out. Live Nation promises 10 upcoming performances by the Clintons next spring, and if the first two nights mean anything, this will be a tour on which nothing is quite right — a weird blend of darkness and nostalgia, of out-of-place things. Imagine watching the Clintons play a chipper, Newlywed Game–style quiz about their marriage

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

President Donald Trump has bashed one of the loudest neoconservative ´Never Trumpers´, Bill Kristol, seizing on news that Kristol´s anti-Trump Weekly Standard magazine is folding. ´The pathetic and dishonest Weekly Standard, run by failed prognosticator Bill Kristol (who, like many others, never had a clue), is flat broke and out of business. Too bad. May it rest in peace!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. It follows an announcement on Friday that the Weekly Standard, which Kristol co-founded in 1995, will be ceasing publication. Kristol, an avid Twitter user, responded to Trump´s tweet simply: ´@ me next time´. (Tweet/Photos) Trump´s attack

MSNBC host Joy Reid and her guest Elie Mystal spent a segment fantasizing about Ivanka Trump being in the “crosshairs” and openly scheming about how the best way to “get” President Donald Trump would be to go after his children. The sinister conversation, in which they urged the left to put the mother and wife “in their crosshairs” occurred on Saturday’s show. “This is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . . The only way we’re really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids . . .

Have you gotten your flu shot this year? If the answer is no - and I´m not getting one! - you´re not alone. A new study finds more than 40 percent of Americans have not been vaccinated and, in fact, don´t plan on it either. This is despite the warnings, potential dangers, and last year´s record-number of flu deaths. The survey was done by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. People under the age of 45 were the least likely to report being vaccinated.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
