Woman Who Shared Philadelphia Starbucks Arrest Video Tells Her Story

"I was sitting close to where they were. Very close. They were not doing anything. They weren’t."

"People ignore this kind of stuff. They don’t believe that it happens. People are saying that there must be more to this story. There is not. This would never happen to someone who looks like me. People don’t believe black people when they say this stuff happens. It does. They want to know the extenuating circumstances. There are none". #bravewoman #trauma101

""Trump Trashes Colin Kaepernick & Tells NFL Owners To Fire Any Player Who "Disrespects Our Flag"." That's one headline I read this morning with my orange juice. I SUPPORT anyone's right to peacefully express their opinion AGAINST an anthem protestor. You read that correctly. I do. I support it. If Trump wants to trash Colin Kaepernick because he feels Mr Kaepernick did something that he didn't understand or is contrary to his belief system then, fine! He has the right to free speech. Now, I think profane name calling is juvenile, but that's the way Trump chooses to exercise that right. Now. But. Wait. Here is where the line gets crossed with what I read above. Once trump's outrage starts to morph into calling for COMPULSORY ACTION enforced with penalties, for actions he doesn't like during the anthem, then THAT is moving toward a severe infringement on the personal liberty granted to citizens by the first amendment to the constitution. Now, we have a problem - And a particularly disturbing one when those words are spoken by the President of the United States. Disagree with Colin? Great. That's your right. Go protest it. Stand for the anthem in your chair and put both hands on your heart if you like. Boycott the NFL if you don't like seeing protestors peacefully kneel. You want to call Colin names because you disagree with or misinterpret his actions? Fine. Its distasteful and unpresidential, but that's fine. That's your right as a citizen. I support the right. But now, as elected leader, you are rabble rousing and calling for PENAL actions against players who in exercising their first amendment right, advocate for equal treatment of all citizens by PEACEFULLY not standing for the flag? Penal actions for those who "disrespect" the flag?? Whoa! What?? Hold on there little orange boy king. That sounds a lot like fascism to me. Wait, that IS fascism and that is right out of Hitler's playbook. Open your eyes to what is going on here.
