Five Black women at Grandview golf club in Pennsylvania were minding their business and golfing when some white men who ran the golf course told them they were golfing too slowly. The women were paying customers, so they continued to golf. Later, the police showed up. The white men who managed the course had called the police. The police didn’t stay because they determined this wasn’t a matter they needed to be involved in. Now the golf club is losing business.
Ms. Clemens, an Alabama Black woman, was arrested at an Alabama waffle house and had her breast exposed. The police claim that Ms. Clemens threatened the workers at the establishment and that she came in drunk with a man. Ms. Clemens mother said the dispute started over plastic utensils. Clemens and another woman asked for plastic utensils and when the restaurant worker told them it would cost 50 cents, they objected and asked to speak with the supervisor. Then the police were called and the rest is history. Next thing you know, Ms. Clemens is on the ground with her breasts exposed to the world as though she were on an auction block.
I have no words.
