Workers Sue Whole Foods For Barring Black Lives Matter Masks
Jul 22 2020
Stoneham's first Black Chairwoman Raymie Parker said in a statement, "The opinions shared in that anonymous letter in no way reflect the beliefs of the Town of Stoneham, and in my experience I've found our community to be extremely welcoming and compassionate".
Two women charged with splashing paint over the Black Lives Matter mural in front of Manhattan's Trump Tower were identified Sunday as attention-seeking anti-abortion protesters who have pulled similar stunts before.
In a statement, a Whole Foods spokesperson said, "While we can not comment on pending litigation, it is critical to clarify that no team members have been terminated for wearing Black Lives Matter face masks or apparel".
Redwood City resident Dan Pease received permission from city officials to paint "Black Lives Matter" on Broadway Street as part of a Fourth of July public art celebration, according to KPIX 5.
In doing so, Fuller strongly alluded to the repeatedly-debunked theory that the Melbourne Black Lives Matter rallies somehow directly contributed to the city's current COVID-19 crisis, despite that being a very big and incredibly bad lie. The officer was injured from the hard fall and taken away in an ambulance to Bellevue Hospital with non-serious injuries.
"While we can not comment on pending litigation, it is critical to clarify that no team members have been terminated for wearing Black Lives Matter face masks or apparel", the spokeswoman said in a statement. Don't just sit by idly and watch your country go to the ground.
"Whole Foods" decision to selectively and arbitrarily enforce it's "dress code' to specifically suppress the message that Black Lives Matter paints a picture about what the company values, and that picture is not pretty", Shannon Liss-Riordan, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said in a statement.
Several people are seen in the video approaching the two women to confront them about defacing the mural.
The NYPD said the department is aware of the incident and the investigation remains ongoing. "Let me tell you something, yesterday was epic".
The women were also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in Cape Coral City, Fla., when they tried to enter a city council meeting through a restricted stairway, according to the Fort Myers News-Press.
"Is that more important than our policy that we support our Black coworkers and our community?" Saying "all lives matter" negates the reality that there is a problem and that there needs to be change.
Last week, the New York Post reported that a man walked up to the mural and poured red paint over it before fleeing the scene.
