Store owner chased black customers out of shop while yelling N-word — then tried to blame it on an employee

Published

on

The CEO of an organic popcorn store in Emeryville, California was seen by multiple witnesses chasing black customers out of his store over the weekend while repeatedly calling them “n*ggers.”

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Mark Stone, the founder and CEO of Cornology, has confirmed that “an employee” of his hurled racial slurs at black customers while demanding they leave the store.

However, a photo taken of the “employee” at the time the incident took place looks exactly like Stone himself — and a city official who is looking into the incident tells the Chronicle that it was, in fact, Stone yelling at the black customers.

The photo of the Cornology employee was taken by Bay Area resident Fay Eastman-Adams, who posted it on her Facebook account along with a description of what she witnessed.

“This business owner just chased a group of young black kids out of Cornology yelling, ‘Don’t come back here n*ggers!'” she wrote. “I asked him why are you yelling at those kids like that?! You can’t go around calling people niggers. Those are kids. This nut says, ‘well what do I call them?’ Then went on to explain why he should be able to call them kids that derogatory racial slur.”

Although Stone initially blamed an unnamed “employee” for hurling racial slurs, he stopped responding to the Chronicle’s questions when confronted with evidence that he was the only employee working at the store that day.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
