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
@WaffleHouse 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.
