    Taylor Swift's latest music video is being battered by critics who claim it is racist and pandering to 'rich white fantasies' from a colonial era. The video for Wildest Dreams, which was revealed during the MTV VMA Awards coverage on Sunday, has a mainly white cast and revolves around two 1950s-era movie stars - played by Swift and Gran Torino actor Scott Eastwood - filming in Africa. There are only two black actors, who play soldiers, and they appear in the background. The mock film crew are white. Director Joseph Khan insists the video is a 'love story' and has...

    This is something that has been bugging me for years. Why should English speaking children be held back because the powers that be insist on forcing non-English speaking kids into a class they are nowhere near ready for thereby holding all those who are ready for it; back. It defies common sense. Is there any reason these non-English speaking children cannot go to a separate school for a year or more until they learn English well enough to go to an American school even it takes them more than a year or two to catch up? It's NOT the kids...

He is certainly doing a good deed by tearing down the Republican Establishment and its anointed candidate, Jeb Bush.

Alison Parker and Adam Ward were members of a fraternity that has been complicit in keeping our society honest. Maybe this double murder in Virginia of two unarmed white journalists by a black man with a gun is the wake up call they need to start doing their job and hold people accountable?

The 90-minute series premiere of Fear the Walking Dead delivered 10.1 million viewers and an incredible 6.3 rating among adults 18-49. That makes Fear the biggest series premiere in cable TV history in both total viewers and key demos. “Thank you and congratulations to Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson, the brilliant executive producers and the entire cast and crew of Fear the Walking Dead,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC. “It is increasingly difficult to evaluate a show’s...

That edges the Denver Broncos (16 arrests), and Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13 each). Around the NFC North, the Bears and Lions have each seen 11 arrests, while the Packers have had eight.

Even if Trump can pull in enough Low Information Votes to become president, the conservatives still lose.

    July 21, 1899: Ernest Hemingway is born in Oak Park, Ill. Hemingway didn’t become known as a “literary he-man” without taking a few risks — in art and in life. From his birth on this day, July 21, in 1899, to his death in 1961, he had nearly as many real-life brushes with death as he assigned to his similarly he-manly fictional characters. He’d been obsessed with death ever since he confronted it — and nearly succumbed to it — on an Italian battlefield during World War I, according to TIME. And although he ultimately died of a self-inflicted gunshot...
