Host Jamie Yuccas said, “What do these cities have in common? They’re all examples of environmental racism, a form of systemic racism where minority and low-income communities are surrounded by health hazards because they live near sewage, mines, landfills, power stations, major roads.” “In Philadelphia, it’s hazardous waste,” continued Yuccas, who also works for CBS News. “In San Carlos, Arizona, it’s a mining project that would dishonor an Apache sacred site.

    Blue’s Clues, a show for kids between 3 and 5 years old, has endorsed LGBT “pride,” complete with flags for various sexual identities, including pansexuality, bisexuality, and transgender identity.

The flags represent pansexual, lesbian, bisexual, asexual, gender fluid, transgender, non-binary, and intersex identities.It seems the reboot show, Blue’s Clues & You, did...

    Parents say Nickelodeon and child star JoJo Siwa have some explaining to do after one mom blew the whistle on a game marketed for young children that contains adult content.

Seventeen-year-old Siwa rose to fame on the hit Lifetime reality show “Dance Moms” before turning into a YouTube sensation. The dancer, singer, and actress signed with Nickelodeon when she was just 13.

In the footage, Floyd repeatedly said "I can't breathe" while being knelt on, and the words have been echoed...
