Internet Mocks ‘Permit Patty’ After Woman Threatens to Call Police About a Black Girl Selling Bottled Water
A woman who threatened to call police about a young African-American girl selling water on a San Francisco sidewalk is being mocked online as "Permit Patty" in what some see as yet another example of black people being censured for seemingly harmless acts. The confrontation came after the 8-year-old girl was selling water to passersby near AT&T Park to help pay for a trip to Disneyland, CNN affiliate WFLA reported.
