Forest Whitaker Action Shot Down The Myth Of The Angry Black Man!
What I like about this incident is the comment made by Forest Whitaker (none) and the action of the owners. They have since apologized to the star for the actions of their employee.
And the store owners are hoping to appease Whitaker by offering a donation to the charity of his choice.
I'm glad Forest Whitaker showed restraint under pressure here by not overreacting in anger, in a way that could have cost the person a job. But, instead allowed a great lesson to be taught by his action. For me Forest Whitaker action shows us if you lose control you risk losing other things as well, like the respect of others or the chance to find a constructive solution.
“The management of Milano Market deeply regrets the wrongful actions of our employee in stopping and frisking Forest Whitaker.”
