    Washington Post global opinions editor Karen Attiah called America “a racist *and* patriarchal society” in response to the threats she says she got over a deleted tweet that reportedly declared, “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.' And not calling for revenge.” In a tweet over backlash she wrote: “America is a racist *and* patriarchal society. We cannot dismantle the full range of oppression in this society without addressing how toxic ideas of white masculinity interplay with the notion of ‘protecting’ their women from Black people.

    A Harvard graduate who claims she was fired from her 'dream job' at Deloitte after saying she'd 'stab' anyone who told her 'all lives matter' in a TikTok video was never actually employed by the firm, it has emerged. Claira Janover, 22, tearfully claimed on Wednesday that supporters of Donald Trump 'took my job away from me' by calling for her firing, in response to the video. In the clip, which has sharply divided people online, she threatens to 'stab' anyone who says 'all lives matter'. Deloitte, however, have confirmed that she was never an employee of the company. Instead...

But now I speak for all good and decent Americans when I say to the young people who have been taught practically from birth to hate their own nation: we love you. We have failed you by allowing you to be taught these lies, and for that we owe you a great apology. Your lives are precious, and as our fellow citizens, we want you to thrive and succeed. We urge you to open your eyes to the poisonous history you have been taught. America is...

    So I was at my gym this morning in central Maryland. I'm chatting with this guy who asks me if I was on last night's conference call with the alumni from the local (and very expensive) private school (I am a public school person). I live in an affluent suburb that used to vote 3 to 1 Republican, but now is more like 50-50 as the younger, affluent whites trend towards socialism. Anyway, this guy (and others on the call) was irate because the handful of black alumni from this school were on the call, calling for the headmaster's resignation,...

    Tina Lawson expressed indignation that Kentucky’s attorney general paused the highly scrutinized investigation into Breonna Taylor’s killing to get engaged. Lawson’s scorching Instagram post comes two weeks after daughter Beyoncé expressed exasperation in an open letter to Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron. Both are anguished that it has taken months to decide whether to charge the three Louisville police officers who killed Taylor while she slept in her bed at 1 a.m. Lawson is especially vexed that the 34-year-old attorney general is not working around the clock to expedite the conclusion of this monumental inquest.

    A painting of the Last Supper featuring a black Jesus will replace a Nativity scene at St Albans Cathedral to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter. The Dean has agreed to install the 9ft piece of artwork on the altar after conceding that the church is in a weak position to preach about racial justice. Titled A Last Supper, the painting reworks Da Vinci's renowned 15th century mural by casting a Jamaican-born model as Christ. The announcement came less than a week after the Archbishop of Canterbury urged the Church of England to reconsider its portrayal of Christ as white....

    Count Liz Cheney and her dad among those attempting to shame all Americans into wearing face masks in the age of the coronavirus. The Wyoming representative tweeted a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney on Friday in a cowboy hat and mask, captioned, "Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks." CNN calls it "a shot at the manhood of people who refuse to wear face coverings in a seeming jab at President Donald Trump." It's not the first time the younger Cheney has bucked the president: in March, she called for the US to deal first with the coronavirus...
