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

Published

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.

Published

White House employees will now be subject to mandatory testing for COVID-19, an official said on Monday.

In a statement to CNN's Jim Acosta, the unnamed White House official said that staffers working near President Donald Trump would be forced to undergo randomized testing.

"As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the health and safety of the entire White House Complex, randomized testing of Executive Office of the President staff, which has been ongoing for several months, will become mandatory rather than voluntary," the official said.

White House employees reportedly received an email Monday morning with a stern warning.

‘Drinking the Kool-Aid’: Famous anti-cult attorney explains what Trump has in common with notorious People’s Temple leader

Published

on

Los Angeles-based attorney/journalist Paul Morantz is famous for his work against cults — most notably, Synanon, which tried to kill him in 1978 by placing a rattlesnake in his mailbox. And in a scathing op-ed for his website, Morantz compares President Donald Trump to the infamous cult leader Jim Jones, arguing that Trump, in effect, committed “mass murder” by downplaying the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and encouraging large gatherings despite the dangers.

In 1978, the same year in which Morantz survived a rattlesnake bite, Jones was responsible for a mass killing in a remote area of Guyana — where the leader of the People’s Temple ordered his followers to drink Kool-Aid that was laced with cyanide. More than 900 cult members died at the Jonestown settlement on November 18, 1978, and in 2020, the slang expression “drinking the Kool-Aid” is still used to criticize people who blindly accept bad information.
