MISSOURI BAR MICHAEL BROWN DRINK SPECIAL: 6 SHOTS For $10!!!

Drink special sign in Mug Shots window (Fox4)
MUG SHOTS, a ST. JOSEPH, MO,  bar is under fire after the owner jokingly promoted a “Michael Brown” drink special, offering 6 shots for $10!!!
 
RAW STORY  reports MUG SHOTS, a bar that advertises itself as a place “Where sarcasm is always free,” posted pictures of the hand-lettered sign in the bar’s window reading;
“Michael Brown Special – 6 shots of Jose Cinge for $10.”
FOX 4 KANSAS CITY reports the ’6 shots’ is in reference to the number of times unarmed BLACK 18-year-old FERGUSON, MO-resident MICHAEL BROWN was hit by bullets fired by FERGUSON POLICE Officer DARREN WILSON.
 
A co-owner of the bar, Rodney Stapleton, admitted that he got the idea after seeing another bar that posted a similar special on their Facebook page, saying it looked like they got a good response.
 
RODNEY STAPLETON said;
“It looked like it was getting a good response so I just decided to use it here. That’s what bar owners do if they find something works at another bar they try to use it at their bar. It’s not meant to cause any harm. I should have thought a little bit more about it before I made it a shot special.”
Protestors stood in front the bar Saturday night holding signs criticizing the promotion, with the owner posting a new offer in the window poking fun at himself.
 
“The owner of Mug Shots is an *sshole shot special, 6 Jose Cinge shots for $12.”

SOLEDAD O'BRIEN SCHOOLS BOB SCHIEFFER On FACE THE NATION!!!

Soledad O'Brien speaks to CBS News (screen grab)
Yesterday, Sunday, December 7, on Sunday morning news show, FACE THE NATION, CNN Host/Contributor SOLEDAD O'BRIEN tried to explain to CBS Host BOB SCHIEFFER that the PROTESTS Over LAW ENFORCEMENT CRIMINALIZING BLACK COMMUNITIES Are About MUCH MORE Than The RECENT FERGUSON, MO, and NEW YORK DEATHS Of MICHAEL BROWN Jr. and ERIC GARNER.
 
RAW STORY reports SOLEDAD O'BRIEN said; 
“Anybody who thinks that what is happening right now [with the protests across the country] is only about Eric Garner, is only about Michael Brown is really missing what is happening in black America. African-Americans feel that they are treated differently in the criminal justice system, they are treated differently under the law. There is this aggressive targeting of black people.. That doesn’t happen in white communities, and it’s that that is really percolating up now.”
BOB SCHIEFFER then asked;
“Do anger over so many years you think that’s a valid feeling, that they are being treated differently?” 
O’Brien encouraged the CBS host to “look at the statistics.”
 
SOLEDAD O'BRIEN is the executive producer of the CNN series, BLACK IN AMERICA, and in her newest installment, SOLEDAD OBRIEN: BLACK IN AMERICA - BLACK & BLUE, she found that 90 percent of the 5 million stop-and-frisk stops in NEW YORK CITY never resulted in arrests.
 
SOLEDAD said;
“Those people had done nothing. So 90 percent of the blacks and Latinos that were stopped in stop-and-frisks in New York City didn’t do anything. Imagine what that does psychically to a culture if you ‘fit the description,’ which means you’re black, male, 19 to 25.”
 
BOB SHIEFFER, however, wondered if the stop-and-frisks were justified because blacks lived in “high-crime areas.”
 
SOLEDAD continued;
“I think the challenge is that it’s not being applied proportionally. For example, if you are arresting and stopping people where many of them haven’t done anything, you create a culture in that community — even a high-crime community — where people feel like they are being criminalized, even those — as we saw in our documentary — who haven’t done anything.”
 
She recalled that one man said that he had been stopped more than 100 times.
 
SOLEDAD concluded with examples from her research of disparities between WHITE and BLACK FAMILIES;
“At some point, I think it becomes very damaging to these individuals, but also to a community that understands this is unfair.. White people would say to me, ‘Well, I tell my children they should be respectful of police.’ And black people would say, ‘I teach my son how to survive an interaction with the police,’ regardless of socio-economic status. That is problematic, and that, I think, is at the core of all these marches and anger that we’ve seen.”

I LOVE 2 EAT #69: NEW YORK HOLIDAY FEASTS On NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE!!!

magazine cover
NEW YORKERS celebrate December in ways as varied and amazing as the city itself!!!
 
For some, the month heralds the passing of our longest night, what the poet John Donne called the year’s midnight. For others, it honors the appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico in 1531, or the birth of the Persian god of the sun, or the martyrdom of St. Lucia, or the miracle of couples from different cultures coming together to create their own.
 
From The BRONX to STATEN ISLAND, across QUEENS and BROOKLYN and up and down the wide avenues of MANHATTAN, garlands unfurl and banquets emerge from kitchens both humble and luxe.
 
Against the darkness of the city sky, NEW YORK CITY feasts.
 
NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE Journalists SAM SIFTON and MALIA WOLLAN recently visited five families across the city to observe their December festivities, and gift us with the graphic photographic celebration of DIVERSE HOLIDAY FEASTS From FIVE NEW YORK FAMILIES.
