Artists Awarded Damages in Graffiti Case

Brooklyn federal jurors ruled in the favor of 21 graffiti artists after a day of deliberations in the despite between land developers and the artists responsible for painting the historic Queens art Mecca known as 5 Pointz. The American mural space at 45-46 David Street in Long Island City was founded in 1993, and was a huge staple in the hip hop and art scene. It was recently closed down and whitewashed as developers have plans to build luxury rental space in the area.

Artists Awarded Damages in Graffiti Case

The collective of artists sued real estate developer Jerry Wolkoff under the Visual Artists Rights Act — a law passed in 1990 that protects artwork of “recognized stature.” The 49 pieces of graffiti that covered the location were legally protected when Wolkoff painted over them during the night without warning nearly 4 years ago. According to the counsel for the artists, each of the 21 were awarded damages.

In an interview with HipHopDX, Baum said “The jury sided strongly with the rights of the artists. This is a clear message from the people that the whitewash of the building by its owner Gerald Wolkoff was a cruel and willful act.”

This is the first trial that cites the Visuals Artists Rights Act, however, the jury’s decision was an advisory ruling, the final call is still a judge’s to make.

Tesla Slammed With Racial Discrimination Allegations

Three former black Tesla employees claim they experienced racial discrimination by company supervisors and fellow employees.

Tesla Slammed With New Round of Racial Discrimination Allegations

According to a lawsuit filed Tuesday, October 17, Owen Diaz and his son, Demetric (pictured above), along with Lamar Patterson, claim they faced racial remarks and racist graffiti drawings throughout their tenures in Tesla’s Fremont factory. According to NBC Bay Area, the former workers claim they were called the n-word multiple times, by both coworkers and their superiors. Owen Diaz claimed he found a “pickaninny” cartoon with the caption “Boo!” drawn on a piece of cardboard.

The suit claims that the Demetric Diaz was let go by the company after he complained about the treatment to a supervisor, who allegedly told the 19-year-old he was a replaceable temp worker. The suit states Owen Diaz continued working after his son’s dismissal but resigned after the harassment became worse.

While the trio maintains they filed multiple complaints with their staffing agency and supervisors of the company, in a statement by Tesla, the company claims the only complaint presented by any of the workers was one issue of a “belligerent coworker.” However, this is not the first time Tesla has dealt with racial discrimination claims. Back in September, video released to the public showed former Tesla employee DeWitt Lambert being blasted with offensive remarks by a co-worker.

Marshawn Lynch Sits During National Anthem

GLENDALE, Ariz. — In his first game in an Oakland Raider uniform, Marshawn Lynch didn’t play a down. Yet he provided the most vivid image of the night, sitting for the national anthem before the Raiders’ 20-10 preseason loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday.

Marshawn Lynch Sits During National Anthem

The ex-Seattle running back, who came out of retirement to sign with his hometown Raiders, sat on an orange cooler with his arms resting on his knees, while others around him stood.

Although he rarely talks to the media, Lynch has voiced support for quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the anthem last season to protest what he saw as a pattern of police mistreatment of people of color.

Lynch was gone from the locker room by the time reporters arrived.

Coach Jack Del Rio said he spoke to him about the issue after the game.

“He said, ‘This is something I’ve done for 11 years. It’s not a form of anything other than me being myself,’” Del Rio said. The coach said that he told Lynch “just so you understand how I feel, I very strongly believe in standing for the national anthem but I’m going to respect you as a man. You do your thing.”

“So that’s a non-issue for me,” Del Rio said.

Quarterback E.J. Manuel said he didn’t know Lynch hadn’t stood for the anthem.

“Obviously, we all support Marshawn because he’s part of our team, but I think that is more of a personal thing,” Manuel said. “I can’t really comment on it too much.”

Upon her arrival, Bullock claims McVey began to slap, punch and drag her throughout the residence while holding a pistol.

She told police the attack lasted roughly an hour and a half and said she was assaulted so many times “she eventually got sick and threw up.”

At one point, Bullock asked to go to the restroom, where she began recording with her phone. The alleged assault continued once she left the restroom.

Police said they could hear McVey state “you’re dead” in the recording as well as sounds that appeared to be slapping.

Police also heard Bullock state “why did you just push me” and “get your fu**ing hands from around my neck.” They also heard Bullock crying and asking McVey to stop.

McVey is being held without bond.
