Roscoe’s Chicken ‘N Waffles Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection PDF Print E-mail
Written by CBSLA.com

MID-CITY (CBSLA.com) — The future of a California soul-food chain remains to be seen after its parent company is officially filing for bankruptcy.

 

The legendary Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘n Waffles is known for being frequented by celebrities, including Snoop Dogg and Larry King.

 

But new court documents show that of all the money Roscoe’s owes to various companies and people, one of the biggest debts is to Daniel Beasley of Compton.

 

Beasley is a former employee who sued the restaurant on Pico Boulevard for racial discrimination and won.

 

“You can’t treat people like that and get away with it constantly,” said Beasley in September.

 

He had accused the restaurant of giving preferential treatment to Latino employees and harassing him for being black.

 

Although Roscoe’s has filed for Chapter 11, it doesn’t mean the company is going under. Rather, the filing helps it buy time in order to restructure its debts.

 

Roscoe lovers hope it all gets resolved soon.

 

“I just wish them all the luck in regards to it,” said Bernie Mendoza.

 

An attorney for Roscoe’s declined to comment Monday evening, while a lawyer for Beasley said the restaurant could have settled the case for less.

Rosario Dawson under fire after posting op-ed slamming labor activist Dolores Huerta PDF Print E-mail
Written by Fox News Latino

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with what my Sister Rosario did with calling out our advocate leader. Unfortunately, Delores is and continues to be wrong with her endorsement of THE most destructive administration in recent years as it relates to Latinos. There is nothing wrong with calling anyone out on misstatements and flat out lies. I think both are just as important in our communities fight for justice and also feel that those making such a stink about Rosario's open letter are doing it only for political rousing.

 

I see this no different to when the Viejito said, "I'm talking!" because the candidate without ethics wouldn't let him take his turn. Now this hollow suit of a person wants him to assure her that his tone be lowered which simply means to not shush her when she wants to take all the time to break the simple rules of courtesy.

Rosario Dawson may have played Dolores Huerta in a Cesar Chavez biopic, but that doesn’t mean she agrees with everything the icon says.

 

The actress and political activist wrote a scathing open letter to the Mexican-American labor activist late last week in response to Huerta’s op-ed in Medium that slammed Bernie Sanders’ record on immigration. Huerta is a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton.

 

“Dolores, I am surprised, dismayed, and concerned that you would do your legacy such a disservice by becoming an instrument of the establishment, rather than joining this movement to create a better America like you once inspired us to do,” Dawson, a Sanders supporter, wrote in the Huffington Post.

 

While the actress and co-founder of Voto Latino acknowledges the hard work Huerta has done for Latinos, workers’ rights, unions, LGBT and feminist movements and against police brutality, Dawson could not fathom why “the same woman who has made it her life’s mission to speak the truth and shed light on corruption, lies, and false narratives created by the corporate elite and special interest groups, would now suddenly create a narrative that distorts facts and misguides American voters.”

 

Dawson went on to highlight a recent incident in which Huerta – and actress America Ferrera – claimed that Sanders supporters chanted “English only” at a Nevada caucus.

 

“Though it was debunked by multiple media outlets and video evidence, neither of you have corrected, apologized for, or taken down the posts,” she said. “It’s race baiting, misleading, divisive and inaccurate and I hope you both will rectify that immediately.”

 

While Huerta has not publically responded to Dawson’s letter, many are taking to the Internet to voice their disapproval of the “lecture” she gave the legendary activist.

 

Cindy Casares, a columnist for the Texas Observer, called out Dawson in an op-ed for the Guardian US saying that if Huerta has concerns about Sanders, people should listen to them.

 

“Don’t insult her integrity by calling her an ‘instrument of the establishment’,” she wrote, asking Dawson – and Sanders – to explain how United Farm Workers (the labor union created by Huerta and Chavez) are a “bunch of corrupt sell-outs.”

 

Casares claims Sanders’ campaign strategy is to “portray himself as an exemplar of moral virtue and Clinton as evil incarnate.”

 

“Not only that, he decries anyone who doesn’t agree with him as a corrupt sell-out. Some of his supporters seem to agree,” she added.

 

Others who shared Casares’ op-ed on Twitter slammed Dawson: “When an actor dismisses commitment of UFW co-founder, arrested 22x, the blowback is fierce.”

 

In a Facebook comment, a reader wrote: “Regardless of whether you agree with Dolores or not, we do have freedom of choice in this country and we do have freedom of speech in this country. We also have a right to (our) opinions. When are you celebrities going to accept that and stop trying to force this woman to support a candidate who she doesn't want to support? Dolores has the right to vote for whomever she (chooses) to support.”

 

However, not everyone is dissing Dawson.

 

"If she didn't already have a healthy career as an actress, I'd say Ms. Dawson should run for some kind of public office. I'd vote for her," one fan wrote on Facebook.

 

"A magnificent statement by Rosario Dawson. A letter not only for this campaign for Bernie, but a powerful and eloquent statement, a manifesto of freedom for all people, for all time. Thank you, Rosario Dawson," another person wrote.

 

Dawson has not commented on her open letter since it was published on Friday. However, her introduction of Sanders at a recent campaign rally in San Diego, California has been making its rounds online.

T.I. does not want your money if you support Donald Trump and what he stands for.

We got the rapper at LAX Thursday, and he railed on the Prez candidate, saying Trump is trying to harm T.I.'s community, and people need to wake up and take a stand.

He also thinks Trump acts like the head of an organized crime family when he encourages his supporters to beat on aggressive hecklers.

Chris Rock took a moment to call out some of the real-life inspirations for some of the Oscar nominees that were in the audience during the 2016 ceremony, including Joy Mangano (Joy) and Michael Rezendes (Spotlight).

He then got silly, also joking that Suge Knight from Straight Outta Compton was in the theater, before cutting to an actor playing Suge wearing an orange jumpsuit and cuffs.Suge Knight is currently in jail and will stand trial on Aug. 1 for murder charges stemming from a fatal hit-and-run in Los Angeles.
