WATCH: L.A. woman throws tantrum because Black deliveryman was entering her building to drop off food

Published

on

On Thursday, a viral video circulated of a Los Angeles woman losing her temper because a Black Postmates deliveryman was trying to bring food to another tenant in her building.

“So you’re not going to let me in to deliver this food?” asked the deliveryman. “I have the number.” He moved to enter it on the keypad.

“Don’t point that sh*t at me!” she snapped, referring to the phone he was using to record. “Don’t deliver anything here, we don’t want you here. I don’t want you here. I don’t want you here at all.”

“There’s a woman at the door,” the deliveryman told the tenant through the intercom.

“Hello? Who is this?” demanded the woman, leaning close to speak to the tenant.

“Excuse me, can you back away from me now?” said the deliveryman.

“Who’s speaking?” the woman continued. “I live in this building. Who is this?” She appeared skeptical that the tenant lived in the building, even though they were speaking through the building’s intercom. “I’m not letting this man in, can I bring your food to you?”

“Who are you, who is this?” asked the tenant, confused.

“I live here, asshole! And I pay rent here,” the woman snapped.

“I do too, so what are you asking?” said the tenant.

“I’m asking you to get out of my building because you don’t live here,” said the woman, rounding on the deliveryman.

“I’m a Black man, I’m trying to deliver—”

“I don’t care if he’s a purple man! He doesn’t live here,” said the woman. “I don’t know him and I don’t want people buzzing him into my building … he’s not a delivery boy, he has no car, no bike, nothing.”

“That car that I pulled up in? That’s my white car,” he said, pointing to it.

Supreme Court mail-in voting ruling raises alarm: Democrats may ‘never win another national election’

Published

on

A divided Supreme Court rejected a Pennsylvania Republican effort to curtail mail-in voting, but experts say the Democratic victory may be short-lived — and confirming Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett would be a "disaster for Democrats."

This article was originally published at Salon

With Chief Justice John Roberts joining the court's three liberals, the court split 4-4 to reject a request from Pennsylvania Republicans to block an order from the state's Supreme Court allowing mail-in ballots to be counted if they are received within three days of Election Day — even if they do not have a clear postmark. The tie left the state decision in place, which Democratic lawyers hailed as "great news for voting rights."

Trump can ‘rage from the balcony’ but he ‘will not succeed’: Dem super lawyer promises to protect the vote

Published

President Donald Trump has a lot of options available to him when it comes to his attempt to steal the election. That doesn't mean they'll work, however.

In an interview with Democratic "super-lawyer" Bob Bauer, "The Circus's" John Heilemann listed a few scenarios for Trump trying to steal the election.

"We already have an electoral infrastructure -- a voting system -- that is not always adequately resourced or supported," Bauer explained. "You take that system, you layer on top of it a pandemic, you lay on top of that destructive behavior by one of the major political parties who espouses this kind of nonsense, and you add on top of that the internet-distributed misinformation plays, and that just means that the task that you have to address these contingencies is much larger than it's been as a structural matter any time in the past."

Will American elections ever again be legitimate?

Published

Only an established, legal “right to vote“ can defeat Republican voter suppression.

Republican politicians and conservative commentators are shocked, shocked! that Chief Justice John Roberts would say that people who voted before election day in Pennsylvania but their ballots were delayed by Lewis DeJoy’s sabotage of the Post Office should have their vote counted.

Increasingly, this election is coming down to the simple question of how effective 40 years of concerted Republican voter suppression efforts will be.

Their main strategy, particularly since George and Jeb Bush got together in 2000 to use a Texas felon list to purge 90,000 Black people off voting roles in Florida, has been removing the names of people who are legitimate voters.
