Protests Erupt At Philly Starbucks Where 2 Black Men Were Arrested For ‘Trespassing’ “Starbucks coffee is anti-black,” the demonstrators chanted Monday morning.
Protesters on Monday swarmed a Starbucks in Philadelphia where police last week arrested two black men who had been waiting to meet a friend. Dozens of demonstrators shut down the Starbucks in Philadelphia’s central business district for over three hours Monday morning. The activists came out to protest racial profiling after the store’s manager called police Thursday to remove the men for sitting at a table without buying anything. “A whole lot of racism, a whole lot of whack,” protesters chanted Monday. “Starbucks coffee is anti-black.” Several speakers said Thursday’s arrests were the product of institutional racism and a historically oppressive police force. "This is a systemic issue,” Megan Malachi, one of the protest’s organizers, told local news outlet PhillyVoice. “Everyone in the city government is complicit and so is Starbucks. ... This is outrageous, this is insulting and we are not going to stand for it.”
Video capturing the men’s arrests went viral over the weekend, sparking protests at the store and calls to boycott Starbucks. “The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything,” author Melissa DePino, who recorded the incident, tweeted last week. “They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing.”
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson apologized for the incident in a statement Saturday and again on Monday during an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
K. Michelle's Booty Shot Removal Results In Multiple Hospital Stays On Tour.
K. Michelle hit us last winter with the news that she was bidding farewell to her infamous big booty (gasp!) she had enhanced with illegal butt shots years ago before she hit the big time. At the top of January, she went through with butt shot removal and didn’t skip a beat. The R&B songstress was quickly back on tour showcasing more natural curves, however she revealed this weekend that things didn’t goas smoothly as she made it look. Kimberly Michelle Pate explained to her fans in a lengthy Instagram post everything that went down post-removal. “For 26 cities I was on steroids to walk and keep down infection causing me to get off stage and be rushed to ER over 4 times and then the next day back on stage,” she wrote. “I later found out the silicone had spread and I would be rushed back into surgery. Last Wednesday I entered surgery barely functioning with my legs and an infection. The surgery to remove all of this from me lasted a long 6 hours.”
She continued to reveal that even after the long surgery, she had to be rushed to ER for 2 blood transfusions and is currently undergoing therapy so she can heal and walk properly. Yikes! But she’s not letting this ordeal get her down. In the same post she talked about her excitement for her twins coming later this year via surrogate. The 34-year-old is already a mother of one to a son, but decided to conceive through a surrogate after a Lupus scare led to fertility issues. We’re wising the her the best on her recovery so she can take care of babies on the way.
Desiree Linden Becomes First American Woman To Win Boston Marathon In 33 Years
The last time an American woman won was in 1985.
Two-time Olympian Desiree Linden became the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in 33 years on Monday when she broke the tape at the finish line with a time of 2 hours, 39 minutes, 54 seconds.
Linden, 34, won with a time more than 14 minutes slower than her previous two races, but course conditions were not conducive to personal- or course-record performances.
Fellow American Sarah Sellers was second, 4:10 behind Linden.
“I don’t have the right words. I’m thrilled,” Linden said on the TV broadcast immediately after the race. “It’s supposed to be hard. ... I was just lucky to get it done.”
Linden finished second in 2011 with a time of 2:22:38.
In the men’s 26.2-mile race, Japanese amateur Yuki Kawauchi won in 2:15:58, his first major marathon victory. Kawauchi is known in the running community but works full time for the government in Japan and is without sponsorship. He is not regularly viewed as an “elite” marathon runner.
Kawauchi, 31, appeared stunned and emotional at the finish line. While he is a seasoned runner with more than 80 marathon finishes in his career, Monday’s time in Boston adds to his record number of 2:20-and-under marathon finishes.
The temperature Monday morning at the start line was announced at 30 degrees and rain fell throughout the race, often heavily, to make for a slower overall pace.
“For me, these are the best conditions possible,” Kawauchi said after the race.
The last Japanese man to win the Boston Marathon was Toshihiko Seko in 1987. Kawauchi is the ninth Japanese male to win Boston.
Kawauchi is dubbed a “Citizen Runner” and holds the world record for the fastest marathon in a full business suit and the top time wearing a panda costume.
