Are you kidding me?! 11 women kicked off Napa Valley Wine Train for ‘laughing too loud’

This weekend, a normal innocent ride through the Napa Valley wine country turned into a story going national due to the actions of the management ejecting the 11 ladies (10 Black and one White) from the train car… for laughing and talking too loudly, per their criteria.

The racially-motivated incident prompted a backlash against the company, with the hashtag #LaughingWhileBlack.
