YOU CAN’T EXPECT MEN TO TREAT YOU LIKE A LADY, WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO ACT LIKE A MAN AND SUPPORT FEMINISM! SMH ROFL!!
Charless Lovett says it all started Tuesday morning because of a disagreement over who had the right of way in a lane on Morse Road. Lovett claims the man got upset with him because he thought Lovett had cut him off on Morse Road in the area of Interstate 71 and Sinclair Road. Lovett says the man nearly sideswiped him trying to cross over from the Sinclair Road lane into the Morse Road lane, and Lovett honked at him.
Lovett says that’s when the man, who was in a Uriahs Heating Cooling Refrigeration work vehicle at the time, followed him to his house in a nearby north Columbus neighborhood. As Lovett got out of his car in his driveway, he began recording on his iPhone as he walked toward the van at the end of his driveway.
In the video, the man says he didn’t follow Lovett to his house, but is headed to a job in the area.
“I just want to let you know what a n****r you are,” the man can clearly be heard saying, after Lovett asked how he can help him.

The man continues, repeating the line multiple times, then tells Lovett, “You’re a rude n****r.”
“So, I’m a n****r because you can’t read street signs right?” Lovett challenges.
The man then argues with Lovett about whether he cut him off, and tells Lovett he feels entitled.
“How do I feel entitled?” Lovett challenges. “You feel entitled because I’m black.”
The confrontation changes, as the worker challenges Lovett’s comments about working for what he has, asking, “You got a job?” and “You paid for that?” in reference to his car.
The nearly three-minute confrontation was all captured on video, as they continue arguing about who had the right of way, with the employee telling Lovett his rudeness is unacceptable and he’s glad he got to tell him that.
“I’m glad I got all this information, that I’ll be sending to the state, since you’re a state contractor,” Lovett says, pointing at the truck that shows Uriahs’ logo. The van also shows a “State Contracting License” text with the company’s license number.
ABC 6/FOX 28 reached out to the company and the driver, Jeffrey Whitman. While he wouldn’t go on camera, Whitman said in a phone call that he’s not a racist and that he regrets it.
He said, “I lost my head.” Whitman added that after Lovett posted the video on Facebook, he began receiving threats. When ABC 6/FOX 28 asked why he would say that word over and over, he hung up.
In a statement, Whitman said
“To Charles Lovett and the community,
I apologize for my use of the n word towards Charles Lovett on Tuesday, July 24th. I understand that using the n-word was not only hurtful towards Lovett as an individual, but hurtful towards the Black community at large. Using the word was dehumanizing, unacceptable, and inexcusable. My actions reflect an unhealthy mindset I have developed and I need to work to change. I have served the Black community for the last 9 years, installing furnaces and water heaters with pride. My actions that day are not a reflection of my feelings towards the Black community. I also understand that racial tensions in America are higher than before, and I regret my part in contributing to that tension. I realize that words are hollow without action, and because of the hurt I have caused, I hope I have the opportunity to give back to the Black community that I have harmed in a meaningful way.”
When contacted by ABC 6/FOX 28 Tuesday, Whitman didn’t want to speak on camera but said in a phone call he regretted it and “I lost my head.”

Eric Swalwell, the gun-grabbing Democrat congressman from California’s 15th District and spewer of leftist sound bites, continues to ride the coattails of Schumer, Pelosi and Maxine Waters. He’s even giving Adam Schiff some competition for Chief Jackass of his party.
Contrast Swalwell’s palaver with what Rudy Peters, his Republican opponent in the upcoming election, has to say. Here’s a sample from his website:
The Second Amendment—Balancing Rights with Safety
The oath of office for a member of the U.S. Congress begins with the following statement:
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”
Please note that THIS INCLUDES THE SECOND AMENDMENT.
Peters is a seasoned, sensible man who made his success in the real world whereas the young Swalwell has been a career politician from the start.
Swalwell is part of the problem in America, not part of the solution. He’s another obnoxious cog in the Democrat’s Trump-hating machine. Walk away!
Californians need to reject the callow statism of Swalwell and instead elect a responsible man who will protect our Constitution. That man is Rudy Peters.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — In North Korea, summer is not a good time to be a dog.
In the sizzling heat, North Korea’s biggest brewery is pumping out twice as much beer as usual, Pyongyang residents are lining up to get their “bingsu” — a syrupy treat made with shaved ice — and restaurants are serving up bowl after bowl of the season’s biggest culinary attraction: spicy dog meat soup.
Euphemistically known as “dangogi,” or sweet meat, dog has long been believed to be a stamina food in North and South Korea and is traditionally eaten during the hottest time of the year, giving a sad twist to the old saying “dog days of summer.”
The dates are fixed according to the lunar calendar and dog meat consumption centers around the “sambok,” or three hottest days — July 17 and 27, and Aug. 16 this year. Demand appears to be especially high this year because of a heatwave in East Asia. Temperatures in the North have been among the highest ever recorded, hovering near 40 degree Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) in several cities.
As is the case with almost everything, good statistics are not available for how much dog is eaten in the North.
But in South Korea, where even President Moon Jae-in has dogs as pets, at least 2 million canines are slaughtered and eaten each year even though its popularity as food is waning. While many older South Koreans believe dog meat aids virility, younger people generally are either against the practice or indifferent to it and there has been increasing pressure to ban it altogether.
On both sides of the Demilitarized Zone, dogs used for their meat are raised on farms for that express purpose.
“It’s been our national food since olden times,” explained Kim Ae Kyong, a waitress at the Pyongyang House of Sweet Meat, the largest dog specialty restaurant in the North Korean capital. “People believe that heat cures heat, so they eat dog meat and spicy dog soup on the hottest days. It’s healthier than other kinds of meat.”
The restaurant’s menu lists more than a dozen dog dishes, including ribs, hind legs and boiled dog skin.
Like their neighbors to the South, North Korean attitudes toward dogs are changing.
It is increasingly common to see people walking their dogs on leashes in Pyongyang and other cities in the North, a trend that seems to have just begun to catch on over the past few years. Feral dogs are common in the countryside, however, and left to fend for themselves.
How leader Kim Jong Un feels about all this isn’t known.
But in January he made a point of donating 30 pet dogs of seven breeds — including a bulldog — to Pyongyang’s newly renovated Central Zoo, where dogs are put on display much like the wild animals. The canine center at the zoo is, in fact, one of its most popular attractions, and posters near the cages explain how to properly care for and feed — not eat — canine companions.
