San Francisco has a new “Permit Patty” — but in a now-viral video, the tables were turned when a black bystander began recording her.
In a video posted by SF resident Derrick Perryman, a white woman is seen standing with her cell phone to her ear as an Asian woman sells her wares. When the woman sees that he’s recording, she waves at him.
“Hi!” Perryman responds. “We have another Permit Betty here. Let’s get her viral also.”
“Sorry guys, I have to ask for permits,” the woman, still holding her phone, tells Perryman and the camera.
“Yep, she sure does,” he retorted. “She’s gotta mess with people who are just trying to make a living.”
The woman makes a remark about people needing “to be able to walk on the sidewalks” as Perryman laughs.
“Let’s let her go viral, ladies and gentleman,” he tells viewers. “There she goes.”
“Let’s figure out what company she’s with,” Perryman continued — and at that, the woman walked briskly away into the crowd.
Watch the third time a white woman has called the police on people of color for seemingly mundane occurrences in the SF Bay Area in recent months below:
New details revealed in the bizarre story of Jerry Falwell Jr, a pool boy and ‘compromising photographs’
The New York Times has put together a lengthy report about the utterly bizarre circumstances surrounding Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen, a former pool boy, and purportedly "compromising photographs."
The story begins in 2012 when Falwell and his wife enjoyed a stay at the Fontainebleau, a Florida luxury resort known for topless sunbathing and a massive underground nightclub described by one travel guide as "30,000 square feet of unadulterated fun."
Revealing gruesome new details of Khashoggi murder, UN report says ‘inconceivable’ crown prince not involved
In a thorough and damning report on the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi released Wednesday, United Nations special rapporteur Agnes Callamard found that Khashoggi was "the victim of a brutal and premeditated killing" that was likely orchestrated by top officials in the Saudi government, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
"Evidence points to the 15-person mission to execute Mr. Khashoggi requiring significant government coordination, resources, and finances," Callamard wrote. "Every expert consulted finds it inconceivable that an operation of this scale could be implemented without the crown prince being aware, at a minimum, that some sort of mission of a criminal nature, directed at Mr. Khashoggi, was being launched."
Critics lament as 126 House Democrats join forces with GOP to hand Trump ‘terrifying’ mass domestic spying powers
Privacy advocates and civil liberties defenders are expressing outrage after the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday night voted down a bipartisan amendment designed to end, as one group put it, the U.S. government's "most egregious mass surveillance practices" first revealed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.
In a final vote of 253-175, it was 126 Democrats who joined with 127 Republicans to vote against an amendment introduced by Rep Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) that would have closed loopholes in Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that critics charge has allowed the NSA to abuse warrantless surveillance capabilities and target the emails, text messages, and internet activity of U.S. citizens and residents.
