    U.S. Womens soccer star Megan Rapinoe shamed Sports Illustrated for a lack of diversity even as she delivered her acceptance speech for the magazines Sportsperson of the Year award. Rapinoe took the podium Monday at the magazines award ceremony, but she took them to task for only having had four female persons of the year saying, Is it truth that Im only the fourth woman deserving of this award? I dont think so, Mediaite reported. Rapinoe went on scolding SI: Is it true, so few writers of color deserve to be featured in this publication? No. Is it true, so...

    ~snip~ Megan Rapinoe is Sports Illustrateds Sportsperson of the Year. She is just the fourth woman in the awards 66-year history to win it unaccompanied, a feat that is both a remarkable athletic achievement and a reflection of entrenched gender biases. Rapinoe challenged perceptions of her, of female athletes, of all women. She led her teammates, three months before their tentpole tournament, to sue the U.S. Soccer Federation for equal pay; to declare in advance that they would not visit the White House when they won the Cup; to score 13 goals in a group-stage match against Thailand, without apology....

    Megan Rapinoe, star of Reign FC, the U.S. womens national soccer team and MVP of the 2019 Womens World Cup, singled out Colin Kaepernick in a speech Monday as she accepted an award for being one of Glamour magazines women of the year, saying, I dont feel like I would be here without him. She began her remarks with a lighthearted shout-out to women this year. Every woman! Were just killing it the whole year. So shout-out to just women in general. Then she turned more serious.

    The summer season has ripped off the thin scab that covered an American wound, revealing a festering disagreement about the nature and origins of the United States. The San Francisco Board of Education recently voted to paint over, and thus destroy, a 1,600-square-foot mural of George Washington's life in San Francisco's George Washington High School. Victor Arnautoff, a communist Russian-American artist and Stanford University art professor, had painted "Life of Washington" in 1936, commissioned by the New Deal's Works Progress Administration. A community task force appointed by the school district had recommended that the board address student and parent objections...

    Americans should be rallying together because of her success with the team, instead she is helping to divide us even further. She uses profanity to express her hatred towards the country and her character really shows when she speaks about President Trump. Rapinoe turned down an invite from the administration before it even happened. Rapinoe believes that her and her teammates should receive the same pay as the mens team. She does not mention anything about the fact that the mens team brings in a lot more revenue for the organization than her team does. Rapinoe is much like AOC,...

    Soccer champion Megan Rapinoes brother, Brian, has a history of involvement with white supremacist prison gang activity, ESPN reported on Sunday. Brian joined a white supremacist gang while he was in prison for car theft and other crimes. His hands, sides, and legs were tattooed with Nazi symbols, including a swastika and lightning bolts. Brian explained them as an effort to become an active participant in prison culture. Rapinoe said that she thought [the tattoos] were horrible. But, she added, I could rationalize them: I understood that when he first got in there, he was searching for identity, trying to...

    President Trump unequivocally congratulated the United States women's soccer team after its repeat World Cup win on Sunday -- putting aside, at least for the moment, the firestorm surrounding star forward Megan Rapinoe's vow never to visit the White House. "Congratulations to the U.S. Womens Soccer Team on winning the World Cup!" Trump tweeted. "Great and exciting play. America is proud of you all!" Asked by reporters later in the day whether men and women soccer teams should make the same money -- which Rapinoe has demanded -- Trump responded, I would like to see that, but youve also got...

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D.Idiot) said Saturday his first act as president will be asking World Cup champion and Donald Trump antagonist Megan Rapinoe to be the Secretary of State. Inslee was speaking at the liberal Netroots Nation conference in Philadelphia when he touted Rapinoe as someone who could unite the United States and other countries around the world. "President Trump has done a lot of damage to our international reputation through his approach to foreign policy. A Daily Kos user, Mr. Rochester, would like to hear more from you about what you might do differently in your approach to...

    Shes chic, fiery, and really darn good at soccer. Is it any wonder that everybody loves Megan Rapinoe? The soccer star and U.S. womens national team captain has become a celebrity after guiding her team to yet another Womens World Cup win on Sunday. Amid endless fanfare, she has received a glowing feature in the Washington Post, modeled for Sports Illustrated, and become a viral sensation. One article in the Week even endorsed her for president. Theres just one problem: Shes actually kind of an awful person. Rapinoe has soccer skills for sure, but her entitled, flippant, and unpatriotic attitude...

    Presidential candidate Julian Castro says there's an easy explanation for Megan Rapinoe's standoff with President Trump, and it won't change until 1600 Penn. gets a new resident. Castro joined us on "TMZ Live" and said there's some pretty clear symbolism to Megan and the U.S. Women's Soccer Team skipping White House photo ops. He says it's simply a byproduct of Trump's "horrendous" and "divisive" policies.

    The ladies won, and let's salute them.  The TV ratings were great, and everyone's happy. How does this translate to more people watching women play soccer in the U.S.?  I hope it does, but women's pro soccer has not been good at selling tickets. Actually, not everyone is happy.  I am not happy, and lots of people I've heard from are not happy. First, the tournament showed that international women's soccer is a total mismatch.  In other words, there aren't enough good women's soccer teams in the world.  The U.S. is obviously "the queen" of soccer and will only get better because our young women have...

    U.S. Women's Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe doubled down in her opposition to visit the Trump White House on Tuesday but expressed that she was open to accept invitations from anyone who "believes the same things we believe in" like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY. Rapinoe's feud with the president began last month when she declared she was "not going to the f---ing White House, which prompted a response from Trump on Twitter. "I am a big fan of the American Team, and Womens Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!" Trump...

    The U.S. women's national soccer team is back on home soil following its victorious World Cup run in France. The last time the team was in this position, in 2015, it couldn't wait to celebrate with President Obama. But, it's a different story this year. Megan Rapinoe, one of the most vocal and recognizable players on the team, has already told the press she's "not f***ing going" to Trump's White House. As one of the openly gay players on the team, she doesn't believe Trump represents LGBT citizens. It's one of the reasons she's also refused to recite the national...

    An investigation is underway after posters of US women's soccer star Megan Rapinoe were vandalized at Bryant Park in Manhattan, one day after the team's World Cup championship victory.

The NYPD Hate Crime task force is investigating. The MTA released the following statement: "Hate has no place in the transit system and we work hard to make the subway a welcoming, safe environment for everyone. We...
