here we go again.
I don’t know the full story, but either it is more than a black woman trying to use a coupon, or that manager has some sort of mental or physical disability. You don’t get shaken that visibly just from black woman trying to use a coupon, even if you are racist. Also if you list to the audio you can here a siren going off, why?
The local news my area already compared it to the incident of the two black men being arrested at Star Bucks.
I may or may not address more about this later, but I do with to address this:
While on the phone with police, Matson describes Hudson as “African-American,” to which she responds, “Black. No, I’m not African-American, I’m black. Black isn’t a bad word.”
Dear Ms. Hudson,
It may shock you realize this, but white people are not mind readers. They can’t tell before hand whether you prefer the term black or African American or whatever. You know for a fact that some people of your race consider African American and not black as the proper term. How this guy supposed to know which term you prefer(and I don’t think he should have to ask you when he is calling the cops on you). You may wish to ask why he has to refer to your race at all, well like it or not, your race is part of your description and one thing police are going ask when you call them is what the person you are calling about looks like. It frustrates and angers me that something so obvious needs to be explained. But I guess it does.
Dear Ms. Hudson,
I read another account where you said you were told to had to leave the store or you would be arrested for criminal trespass. You said you were upset that though you thought the cops acted professionally, that it seemed to you that the cops for there for the store managers and not for you. It seems you and other people do not realize that a store is not public property. A CVS store is the property of CVS. A CVS employee and manager represent CVS. If a CVS employee or manager tells you that you have to leave the store, you do. If you don’t, it is called trespassing and they have every legal right to call the cops and if you refuse to leave when the cops tell you to leave, they have every legal right to arrest you. This is like if someone came into your house and you told them to leave, they have to leave. If they don’t leave, what are you going to do? I think you would agree that you would have every right to call the cops. If the cops tell them to leave and they don’t, I am going to bet you’d want the cops to arrest them or bodily throw them out. So, would you have preferred the cops to bodily throw you out or just threaten you with arrest if you don’t leave? Additionally, I noticed in an article that you said you opened the door of an employees only section of the store, I do not know how close you came to entering the section, but newsflash: when the door says “employees only”, they mean it. That part of the story and the fact that manager was visibly shaking and a siren could be heard going off suggests to me that you yourself were not perfectly behaved in this incident. Additionally, one article I read says that maybe part of your coupon was hand written. If that is the case, it is obviously fraudulent. No part of a legit coupon is hand written. Despite the fact that CVS has said it has concluded its investigation and fired the two managers involved in this incident, I continue to believe there more to the story(especially since all we have heard is your side of the story).
Dear CVS managers involved in this incident,
If you are not actually racists and there is more to the story you and had good legit reason to call the cops on this lady, I strongly suggest you share it. I see incidents like this happen a lot and again and again only one side speaks out and media run with it and assumes the one account they are given to be the complete and accurate truth. I believe the media is motivated by their left leanings to run with a story like this in order to prove that racism is alive and well. I do not believe that media is doing their jobs when they just run with one side of a story and don’t investigate to make sure they have all the facts. I believe this to be the case with the incident in the Starbucks in Philadelphia. If that is what is happening here, I wish you to get your side out and show that the media is doing a poor job of covering stories like that. It may also be wise to get legal help. Again, this is all assuming you are not racist and that you had legit reason(s) to refuse the coupon and call the cops on this lady. If you do not have legit reasons and you are racists and you refused the coupon and called the cops because you hate black people, F___ OFF!
