Over the weekend, 11 women—10 Black, one white—were kicked off the Napa Valley Wine Train after a customer complained the book club members were too loud. According to one of the women involved, the ladies were paraded through the train into the care of four waiting cops, causing the group to feel humiliated.
Despite the Napa Valley Wine Train debacle, Black people love vino, too. What many don’t know, however, is we also produce it.

Absolutely asinine.. How dare these people whom are not just Black but ALSO women think they have the right to travel in groups; especially together with other aware, intelligent Black women! On top of that, how dare they have the audacity to LAUGH while riding transportation! *SARCASM NOTED* This is sickening. Racism has never died in America, but it is becoming more and more blatant. As I always say, the Black community sadly has it the hardest here in America; but a Black woman has TWO strikes to fight against for obviously she is also a woman. There is no stronger soul than that of a strong woman, especially a strong Black woman, if one wants to know my opinion.
When Nelson Mandela was in prison, he was asked what he thought about, or who he would vote for (it’s been awhile so I’m paraphrasing) between the two idiots running for President of South Africa (sorry but I call em as I see em). He replied he’d rather the blunt, outspoken racist win over the other one, for at least then you know where the racism is and what their oppressive, racist plans are. In America we are faced with a similar situation. Too many whites shamefully don’t want to admit that racism is still thriving; that helps no one.
Again, I call em as I see em, and denying racism (and believing it true) in America takes a special mind to say the least. I’ve been fighting racism most of my life and racism in Police Brutality since I was 14… In a way I am glad that racism is becoming more blatant and in our face, for I think at least when it’s in the peoples face, they will eventually HAVE to acknowledge racism for what it is; and act or revolt accordingly. I am ready to revolt NOW, a racist is the lowest form of a being I can think of. For the fight against racism and police brutality I would proudly give my life; this has to change. These women (and countless other women and men) do NOT deserve this treatment. Please don’t mistake what I am saying; it hurts me to see other people hurt and treated with far less respect and kindness than they deserve. I believe if it is to end, we need more people to wake up and treated It is horrific and tragic they had to endure it; HOWEVER, at least it is becoming more and more clear and visible as to how these evil people truly feel; at least they are letting it show with sick pride… This is to OUR ADVANTAGE, but that doesn’t by any means make it acceptable or right.
I’m only saying is the more obvious the racism, the higher the chance to wake up and ‘recruit’ more for our fight back (which is 100% called for and justified!) against this disgusting, racist system.
When our numbers grow, we will make sure justice is given; not a false lie or the same racist problem simply given with a white smile and new name.
