Reminiscent of the Soho Karen who falsely accused a Black teen at a New York hotel of stealing her phone (which later turned up in an Uber), another racist Karen, in California this time, falsely accused a Black man at a Walmart for stealing her son's phone, posted on TikTok by @cristinahatesyou earlier this week. She follows him in a parking lot, and although he shows her what's in his pockets (which he didn't have to do), she still believes he stole it. "I know I'm Black with tattoos, so she automatically assumes I have it," he says to his phone at one point. Eventually the son finds his phone – he had left it in the car. So what does the good mother do? She refuses to apologize, won't give him her name, and even tells the falsely accused man to fuck off.

Summer is the perfect time to engage in activities you never seem to find a minute to enjoy—like cracking open and devouring a new book. There's a stereotype of summer reading that the season unleashes a lot of fluffy, escapist options. While some of that stereotype is certainly earned, perusing reading lists from heady folks… READ THE REST
Most everyone has a proper respect for the old ways. But at a certain point, the old ways get old. Tired, stale, and played out needs to give way to something newer and fresher with more life. It's the circle of life and it moves us all. Stock photography has been mostly trapped in amber… READ THE REST
Sometimes, it isn't a bad idea to trust in proven brands with a history. For example, JBL has experience in audio that dates back to the '20s, including playing a seminal role in the advancement of movie theater sound technology in the 1930s.
