Black Male Professor Punches white female colleague During Argument About Racism

LIONEL McINTYRE “Unfortunate event.”

A prominent Columbia architecture professor punched a female university employee in the face at a Harlem bar during a heated argument about race relations, cops said yesterday.

Police busted Lionel McIntyre, 59, for assault yesterday after his bruised victim, Camille Davis, filed charges.

McIntyre and Davis, who works as a production manager in the school’s theater department, are both regulars at Toast, a popular university bar on Broadway and 125th Street, sources said.

The professor, who is black, had been engaged in a fiery discussion about “white privilege” with Davis, who is white, and another male regular, who is also white, Friday night at 10:30 when fists started flying, patrons said.

McIntyre, who is known as “Mac” at the bar, shoved Davis, and when the other patron and a bar employee tried to break it up, the prof slugged Davis in the face, witnesses said.

“The punch was so loud, the kitchen workers in the back heard it over all the noise,” bar back Richie Velez, 28, told The Post. “I was on my way over when he punched Camille and she fell on top of me.”

The other patron involved in the dispute said McIntyre then took a swing at him after he yelled, “You don’t hit a woman!”

“He knocked the glasses right off my face,” said the man, who would only give his first name as “Shannon.” “The punch came out of nowhere. Mac was talking to us about white privilege and what I was doing about it — apparently I wasn’t doing enough.”

McIntyre had squabbled with Davis several weeks earlier over issues involving race, witnesses said. As soon as the professor threw the punch Friday, server Rob Dalton and another employee tossed him out.

“It was a real sucker punch,” Dalton said. “Camille’s a great lady, always nice to everybody, and doesn’t deserve anything like this.”

Davis was spotted wearing sunglasses yesterday to conceal the black eye. Reached at her Columbia office, she declined to comment on the alleged attack.

McIntyre was released without bail at his arraignment last night.

“It was a very unfortunate event,” he said afterwards. “I didn’t mean for it to explode the way it did.”

Rihanna: Lost Interview… Proof of Violent History

November 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Rihanna’s 20/20 interview was arguably the most entertaining thing I’ve seen on television in 8 months. I think the world will agree w/ because as ABC took the ratings crown for the 10pm hour as an amazing 8.1 million people tuned in to watch Rihanna tell her side of the story.  I was mesmerized by her story as she said. “No. Did not hit him”.  Many opinions have been formed about the interview, but last night while looking at some hot pics of Mila Kunis I stumbled on to a Rihanna interview that many have forgotten about.

In an interview w/ Complex Rihanna reveals

Did you see 300?
Rihanna: [Deadly serious.] 300 is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The choreography, the fighting, the costumes, the production—phenomenal. I
make everybody watch it.
So you didn’t think it was too violent.
Rihanna:
Oh, not at all. That was the
good part. I’m the oldest child with two brothers. We talk all the time now, but we used to fight—and when I say “fight,” I don’t mean arguments, I mean physically fight.
Who won?
Rihanna: I hit the older one in his face with a glass bottle.
Bokkle dem! Whoa. Remind me not to piss you off.
Rihanna: Yeah, my mom was pretty upset.

I’m just saying. I totally agree w/ Rihanna when she said nothing gives a man the right to hit a woman. Nothing in the world. I just hope both Chris and Rihanna can move on w’ their lives and be as successful as the Almighty will allow them to be.

QUEENS, N.Y. (WPIX) – Police were on the hunt Saturday for suspects in the deadly shooting of a 13-year-old boy on his way home from school.

Kevin Miller took a shot to the head Friday, and died a short time later at a local hospital. Also hit during the same shooting, was a 17-year-old bystander. He’s was shot in the thigh, and is listed in stable condition.

Eyewitnesses told police a fight broke out around 3:15 p.m. between a group of school kids, and that’s when the bullets started flying. They were in front of a car wash at the corner of Springfield and Linden Boulevards in Cambria Heights.

Police are trying to determine if Miller was in the wrong place, at the wrong time — or, if he was a target.

If you have any information, call the Crimestoppers Hotline at 1-877-TIPS; all calls will be kept confidential.

Nas has stepped up and wrote an open letter to the kids involved in the attack. Check it out below:

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool. Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling , that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But….

We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, fila’s , and name plate chains. Deaths over “he say she say”!!!!! “I’m from This block or I’m from that block”, or “my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay”!!! Read more…
