Bernice King, the youngest daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has seen enough violent cop activity at the Waffle House and has called for a boycott of the restaurant chain following the second forceful arrest of a black person in three weeks.

Last month a video surfaced of black woman having her breast exposed during an arrest by police at a Waffle House in Alabama. Just last week, another video surfaced of young man being man handled by police at a Waffle House in North Carolina after taking his little sister to prom.

 

King tweeted last week,  “Family, let’s stay out of until the corporate office legitimately and seriously commits to 1) discussion on racism, 2) employee training, and 3) other plans to change; and until they start to implement changes.”

 

King posted a second tweet about the previous Alabama incident, concluding it with the question, “Do Black Lives Matter?”

Pat Warner, a spokesman for Waffle House, which has 1,900 restaurants in 25 states including more than 400 in Georgia, said he welcomes conversations with anybody.
