'Untrue': Man accused of telling black lawmaker to 'go back where you came from' speaks out
A man accused of telling a black Georgia lawmaker to "go back" to where she came from in a Publix grocery store is speaking out with a different version of events.

In a Facebook Live video on Friday, state Rep. Erica Thomas recounted the alleged incident.

"This white man comes up to me and says, 'You lazy son of a bitch. ... You need to go back where you came from,'" she said. “I said, ‘Sir, you don't even know me. I'm not lazy. I'm nine months pregnant."

The man in question, Eric Sparkes, however, later told local outlet WSB-TV his side of the story following an explosive confrontation between him and Thomas. While he admitted that he did call her a "bitch," Sparkes denied telling her to "go back."

"That's all I said after that, and I walked out of Publix," he said, adding that he is of Cuban descent. "Her words stating on [Facebook] in her video, stating I told her she needs to go back where she came from are untrue."

He also accused Thomas of making up the story for "political purposes."

"Like I said earlier, I'm a Democrat," he said. "I will vote Democrat the rest of my life, OK? So to call me what she wants to believe for her political purposes that make it black, white, brown or whatever, that is so untrue."
Donks. :lol:
Law enforcement is looking into whether someone said something mean to somebody? :suspicious:

‘I didn’t say to her something mean like go back to where you’re from. I just called her a “bitch”.

:lol:

Democrat on Democrat crime.... :ohno:

I like how she walks back her claim after being called out by the actual guy.

I agree. Had more than 10 items in the express lane. Lazy

I'm still trying to figure out if words are actually important (or not)

When you quote the President of the United States
we're quickly reminded on this forum that words don't really matter

But when you quote somebody nobody has ever heard of.. We'll run that on Fox News for three weeks
and get top billing around here

Trans Activist Sues Salon for Not Waxing “HER” Balls
A transgender woman filed a complaint that a home-based salon was discriminating against her because they refused to give her a Brazilian wax, which is the removal of hair in the 'down there' region of your body. The hearing turned into a session filled with outbursts and the lawyers battling back and forth, per a report on the National Post.

"At one point, the complainant compared the business owner to a neo-Nazi. The lawyer for the business owner accused the complainant of engaging in “half-truths and fabrications.” Tribunal adjudicator Devyn Cousineau frequently had to interject to maintain decorum and to keep the hearing from careening off course."
Here's where it gets sticky, no pun intended (ok, it was definitely intended) - Yaniv, an LGBT activist, has made more than a dozen complaints suggesting that she's the victim of discrimination from multiple salons. Some of those complaints were actually settled before a hearing or withdrawn entirely.

Wow.

It would honestly not surprise me that much if this "woman" weren't actually serious and was just trying to create up controversy on the trans gender issue.

A conservative trans woman (I know) has put out a video on just how creepy this person is...even to the trans community...

Extremely long read about a tranny and a lesbo that go around trying to ruin men's lives with false paternity claims and other forms of extortion because "they hate the patriarchy".

Article tells the story about how a Harvard Law prof let them walk all over him because he was too afraid of being seen as a bigot to stick up for himself. They were even able to make him and his family homeless for a few weeks and get him suspended by the Harvard Title IX office.

No sympathy for the Harvard guy. He lives in Boston.

Do you know how cheap it is to get some crazy Mick from Dorchester to disappear somebody? You probably have enough in your wallet right now. Nobody with access to Dorchester should ever get steamrolled

Witness: State Rep. Erica Thomas told Eric Sparkes, ‘Go back where you came from’
A witness to a heated grocery store encounter between state Rep. Erica Thomas and a man she accused of uttering racist comments told authorities she didn’t hear him make those remarks, according to a Cobb County police report.

A Publix employee told a Cobb County officer that she witnessed part of the conversation and heard Thomas “continuously tell Eric Sparkes to ‘Go back where you came from!’” but did not hear Sparkes utter those words to Thomas.
