Black women sue the golf club that called the cops on them for ‘playing too slow’Just over two years ago, five Black women had the police called on them while playing a game of golf at the Grandview Golf Club in Pennsylvania. Now two of those women are filing a lawsuit. Two years ago, York Daily Record (YDR) reported that the women — Myneca Ojo, 56; Sandra Thompson, 50; sisters Sandra Harrison, 59, and Carolyn Dow, 56, and Karen Crosby, 58 — were told by workers at the golf club that there were not “keeping the pace.” Later the police were called on them. Watch the original story Thompson even recorded the end of their confrontation on her personal device: However it is Ojo and Crosby who are filing the suit. Ojo told YDR that she knew discrimination was at play. “When this man saw us, he saw two things: He saw us being African-American, and he saw us being an all-women group being on the golf course,” Ojo said. “I don’t want anyone else to have that feeling that they are unwelcome any place in this country.” Monday, the two women filed a lawsuit; it contains multiple counts, including conspiracy to violate constitutional rights, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
FBI says White Supremacists want to weaponize the virus to target “non-white” neighborhoods and law enforcementWhite supremacists have been using social media and online apps to encourage its members to used coronavirus as a weapon of “bio-terrorism” by spraying saliva in public places, in an effort to infect minorities and law enforcement, according to the Federal Protective Service’s intelligence briefing. The document states that the hate group felt “an ‘obligation’ to spread [the virus’ should any of them contract the virus.” Writer and political analyst Jared Yates Sexton wrote on Twitter that the virus crisis, paired with Trump’s racist rhetoric has created a perfect storm. He shared this on Twitter:
The members have been encouraged to target law enforcement, minority neighborhoods and busy, public places. ABC reported that the group has been blaming the Jewish leaders for the coronavirus. Their theory? Jews created the virus in an effort to cash in on the vaccines, Michael Masters told ABC, the head of Secure Communities Network, a group that organizes security for Jewish organizations. “Neo-Nazis and others have used this to drive their own conspiracy theories, spread disinformation and incite violence on their online platforms,” he added. The report from the FPS also states that these are the methodologies they may use:
I’ve reported on this extensively, but white supremacists and white identity, evangelical communities share a Neo-Confederate ideology that a racist god has anointed them and they are threatened with an evil conspiracy of minorities.https://t.co/JJCBYjZgsz— Jared Yates Sexton (@JYSexton) March 21, 2020
• Occupying public places with their “enemies” • Leave saliva on the door handles of FBI offices • Spray law enforcement with spray bottles filled with saliva • Leave saliva on elevator buttons • Spread the virus in non-white neighborhoods DHS Federal Protective Service on white supremacists and coronavirusThe document calls White Supremacist White Racially Motivated Violent Extremists (WRMVEs). The FBI is taking this threat seriously because “WRMVEs have been known to travel abroad to adapt foreign terrorists’ tactics. It is likely that they would be willing to travel to China to bring the coronavirus back to the U.S.” You can read the full remarks from the FPS’ briefing here.
