Two black men were arrested waiting at a Starbucks - now the company and police are on the defensive

How do you think the situation should have been handled?

Starbucks, which has touted its progressive values and its "social impact" agenda, faces fierce criticism and calls for a boycott after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia store, sparking accusations of racial profiling over what the company's chief executive called a "reprehensible" incid...

Cuz I’m a poor, dysfunctional bracket racer that may want to see some FAST CARS!

Because I wanna take the kids the love racing

Got 3 boys dieing to see some loud cars they have never been i went to pinks all out but never had the chance to go back 😀🔥🎬

I took my wife out there in October and we were blown away with how awesome it was.. we would definitely love to come back and bring some friends!! Aeron Lopez

You should choose us because we live the races and my boys get mad because I can't afford to take them!

Got 2 kids racing juniors this will be our first TOPMA event, free tickets would help for sure....

I want to take my husband and kids it would be a good anniversary for me and my husband cause we are big fans of TOPMA. We love drag racing

I have seen the ProMods before but never at the Motorplex. I would love to see the Pro Mods there. Please, please and Thank you for the opportunity " 😊👍

Cause I've never been to a race like this before and always wanted to just can't afford to go to one

I need a change of scenery after having a motorcycle wreck 4 weeks ago

My husband works out of town all the time, and will be home then. Would make a perfect weekend for us! We have never been to a TOPMA event, but we frequent the Motorplex, where he races his Mustang!

My wife and I went in Gilliam La a couple of years ago and loved it would love to go again

My husband and teenager love the track. We don’t get to do much with her any more since she works and is involved with church and school...this would give us a great opportunity to spend some time together!!

The pro mods racing at the motorplex is awesome!!

Because I have three boys and what boy doesn't love fast cars!

Choose me because I love the Texas Motorplex and I love Drag Racing !!

Because we have never been there & I suffer from flat wallet syndrome. Besides it would be a great time.

My husband loves races we watch Motor Monday every week on Discovery

Our oldest daughter will graduate this year, and it would be a great family outing before she goes to college! As teenagers, there aren’t many things they want to do with their parents, but both of our girls like racing!

I just bought all my school books! Sure could use a race fix before school starts and have to work every Friday!

Because you’re races and track have allowed 3 generations my father, myself and my son to make so many memories together. But I can’t afford to take us as often as I’d like

I need to see some Good Drag Racing!!

I would love to win have some people coming in from out of state

Family loves to going and spending time with our family. It’s something we all love and enjoy!

Pick me The Wife and I have never been to the Motorplex..

Gregg Abbot married to a woman, I believe from Mexico. Am I wrong?

I just put my Beto signs out on front yard. Have to put my t shirt on if I go some place this week. Bell county is like very Republican. Sorta glad I vote by mail these days. LOL!!

Ok. Guess it’s Bush’s wife. Or maybe Lou Dobbs. Isn’t that just amazing. Love the Hispanic wives but not the rights of Hispanic women.

Don’t trust one darn thing Republicans say. It is always counter productive.

Become a Voter Registrar in your county. And register voters. Easy to do. Each county had classes.

El Paso, TX here Home of the next Senator of Tx, Beto O'Rourke!

You mean texas is red because the rural areas get more representation than the urban areas because of gerrymandering? You dont say!

Ahhh yes. Whatever it takes.the heck with the rest of us. What is that called uhhh greed.

Beto will replace Ted Cruz...

Med,and poor class,we will vote blue all the way.

Gorsich should never have happened.

They fear Those of us NOT of their skin color. That is the change you are referring to right?

Corrupt family courts discriminate against parents to rake in billions in federal funds and Abbott and Paxton turn a blind eye.

In Dallas - where we have won every county-wide race since 2006 (except for one) - - plus more in 2002 and 2004.

Republicans are not afraid at all, they are very bold. Democrats are afraid of fighting them at their level.

They will do whatever it takes to keep their status quo, to keep their privelge at all costs.

Danny, that’s pretty silly! On account of a woman??? You probably always voted for ted Cruz anyways...

Change from what there is no change since the republicans are way to afraid and wants to go backward and hate

Hi from New Braunfels, TX. The BLUE WAVE IS COMING

They fear change and progress yes, but they are not clueless.

Angie republicans are very clueless

Brilliant move there Danny Garza, that's the way to change.

Skin color, gender, financial status...

Mary Rios, Greg Abbott’s wife, Cecilia, is from San Antonio.

hummm you discriminate to by supporting beto instead of a women miniorty ted cruz gets my vote this yr
