Urban America is experiencing a political shake-up.

This past weekend, gun rights group Black Guns Matter hosted the event Resurrection: Breaking Bread W/ The Gods in Brooklyn, New York.

This event featured some of the most contrarian thought leaders in urban America.

The theme of this event was firearms, freedom, and finances.

Resurrection was capped off by Hotep Doobs who gave a talk on personal finance. Hotep Doobs believes that the African American community has lost its way when it comes to its financial health. Since the arrival of the welfare state, he argues that blacks have either relied more on the government or dubious spending habits just to get by.

The result of these bad financial habits has been a government-dependent and financially-shackled populace.

Nevertheless, Doobs believes that this trend can be reversed.

He stressed the importance of “disciplining your dollars” and creating wealth-building habits such as investing, saving, and building businesses and side hustles.

Hotep Jesus was the next to take the mic.

The internet marketer gained notoriety for his viral YouTube video asking for his free reparations coffee at Starbucks. Since then, he has been involved politically preaching a capitalist message on YouTube and his email list.

His talk weaved marketing and politics together, showing how fear-mongering is integral to both marketing and politics.

Based on his 20 years of marketing experience and observing the current political climate, the Internet marketer believes that stoking fear into the public is how politicians get elected.

He specifically singled out the example of Andrew Yang and his Universal Basic Income (UBI) program.

Yang sells his UBI scheme as the “solution” to the inevitable rise of AI and robots supposedly taking jobs.

However, Hotep Jesus pointed out how similar arguments were used by the Luddites during the Industrial Revolution. Luddites feared that machinery would destroy a bunch of jobs and leave people permanently unemployed. In fact, the opposite occurred. New employment opportunities came about because of the new fields of work that industrialization created.

In Hotep Jesus’s view, socialists “create problems that don’t exist yet.”

Last up was Maj Toure, the founder of Black Guns Matter.

Toure declared that the state of New York, the state the seminar took place in, is a “slave state” because of its strict regulations on gun ownership.

Toure views the right to self-defense as a foundational freedom.

The gun rights activist described laws as “opinions with guns” and sees all gun control laws as an infringement on the right to self-defense.

By the end of the seminar, Toure called on the attendees to turn the information they learned “into political power.” Inspired by his words, a number of attendees signed up and donated money to the Black Guns Matter organization.

A few days after the event, Toure left a cryptic tweet insinuating a potential run for office in the city of Philadelphia.

It remains to be seen whether Toure will run for office. However, there appears to be a political awakening brewing in urban America.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
