Eleven black women who are members of a book club called the Sisters on the Reading Edge were kicked off a Napa Valley Wine Train in California Saturday afternoon for laughing and talking too loud. The hashtag LaughingWhileBlack was spawned after accounts and pictures of the incident spread across social media, while the women involved said that they were humiliated and offended and have questioned whether they were racially targeted. We look at the incident on the Lip News with Margaret Howell and Jo Ankier.
