Quote: "“Frisking individuals without proof/evidence is a violation of rights.” t he rep added, “Forest did not call the authorities at the request of the worker who was in fear of losing his employment . Forest asked that, in the future, the store change their behavior and treat the public in a fair and just manner.” Milano Market has not released a statement on the incident. This employee has probably followed, confronted and by mistake frisked many African Americans with the racist...

" . . . may have also realized that it would draw unneeded negative attention, publicity and criticism for a Oscar winning veteran movie actor, award winning producer, director and multi-millionaire to have a possible or just above minimum wage deli employee terminated and bring even more negativity and shame to the Milano Market & Deli." ******************************************************************* So, he still should have sued the deli for promoting such racist actions and for...

I think he wanted to take the "embarassment" approach and exposed them for what they truly are! And it worked. Cuz every time a customer come to that store they will KNOW that that employee is a racist. I don't care how many times there are shoplifting...there is an appropriate to do EVERYTHING. And if he assumed that Whitaker was stealing...well that's what security guards and security cameras are for. You just cannot trust the naked eye. But how many whitefolks have been in that store and...

It is not so much about whitaker being railroaded as much as it is black substantive movies (that aren't all about drug addicts, thug life dysfunctional families and buffoonery), that are getting railroaded.

It's also about AFrican America NOT having power over DISTRIBUTION of quality black film. WE gotta get some distribution going. The minority populations in this country are growing and stale euro movies CANNOT entertain an increasingly diverse audiences. Looks like the weinsteins and major studies stil haven't smelled the coffee yet. Audiences will no longer sit still and plunk down 20 bucks for mundane movies about every little aspect of euro american life with NO images of blacks,...
