    Union City’s mayor and other officials condemned a “White Lives Matter” banner found Saturday morning at a city intersection. City officials called the incident — which happened the weekend before the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday and 10 days after the pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol — racist. The banner was found “illegally placed” on the corner of Smith and Dyer streets and removed on Saturday morning, city officials said. A police report was filed, but Union City police could not be reached for comment on Saturday. “The city is disgusted by this despicable act of vandalism that has...

    The lawsuit goes on to say that during a meeting with the school’s principal, Jeannie Steenberge, and a faculty member, the two adults allowed the black students to berate and scream at their daughter, calling her “the biggest known racist in the school,” and accusing her of being “in love with Trump” because she owned Trump decals and other merchandise. “Everyone knows ALL Trump supporters are racist,” the petition claims one black student said. During another meeting, the parents’ petition says the principal told their daughter she was a racist, and that “we are all racists, we are white.” According...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden pledged to allot relief to small businesses on a racialized basis in a video posted to left-wing Big Tech platform Twitter on Sunday, stating that “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses.” Biden made the remarks in a video detailing his plan to rebuild the economy after a year of crippling COVID lockdowns, many of which were supported by Biden himself. “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and...

    prominent human rights lawyer and former president of the National Lawyers Guild has admitted that she is not Latina, but in fact a white woman from Georgia. Natasha Lycia Ora Bannan, senior counsel at the Latino Justice Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, claimed Puerto Rican and Colombian heritage, according to Prism. Records obtained by the site say Bannan's family in fact arrived in the United States from Ireland, Italy and Russia, and she was born in Georgia. On Monday, Bannan, 43, responded to the report and confirmed that she is white. 'I am racially white, and have always...

    Gov. Chris Sununu and his top health official told NHJournal Tuesday that New Hampshire is using racial and ethnic considerations in determining who gets early access to the limited supplies of COVID-19 vaccine. “We have a plan in terms of allocating a certain amount of our vaccine to ensure equity,” Sununu said. “A plan to reach our communities that tend to be inequitably served by our healthcare system.”

    A high school cheerleader had her college “dream” shattered when a black classmate arbitrarily posted a years-old video of her saying the N-word, her lawyer said this week — as the University of Tennessee faced backlash for pushing the teen out. Incoming freshman Mimi Groves, now 19, was kicked off the school cheer team and forced to withdraw earlier this year amid complaints from outraged alumni and students when fellow teen Jimmy Galligan posted the clip. The incident gained national attention when it was detailed in a New York Times story over the weekend. Groves’ lawyer accused the university of...

    A high school student held onto a 2016 video of a young girl saying a racial slur, then posted it online after she had chosen to attend her dream school, the New York Times reported. “I wanted to get her where she would understand the severity of that word,” 18-year-old Jimmy Galligan told the New York Times. He did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation. In 2019, Galligan was sent a three-second Snapchat video of fellow Heritage High School student Mimi Groves saying “I can drive” before uttering a racial slur. When...

    It has been a seismic year for sport, and no more so in athletes raising their voice in the fight for racial equality. Events in Germany have shown that, while progress has been made, there is much work to be done. ... Even before support for the Black Lives Matter movement surged across Europe in May, German football revealed in one month just how much work was still to be done. Blame it on the lack of diversity at the executive level of the sport (particularly true in Germany), blame it on fundamental issues stretching deep into the fabric of...

  • 'Bridgerton’ meant to integrate period romances. So why is it so hard on Black women?

    "Bridgerton,” the new series based on Julia Quinn’s romance novels and developed by hitmaker Shonda Rhimes and showrunner Chris Van Dusen for Netflix, is a Christmas cookie of a show — a sugary, sparkly treat that serves as a comfort in a grim winter. And in integrating the predominantly White world of romance novels by making some of Quinn’s characters Black, the show inadvertently provides a useful lesson for an entertainment industry struggling to meet viewers’ demands and corporate mandates for more diverse programming.

    We have been discussing student editors and student government leaders using their positions to retaliate against the exercise of free speech by other students with the support of faculty. This trend is hardly surprising as journalism deans call for censorship and journalism professors call for the rejection of neutrality in the media. Universities have generally remained passive as students and faculty harass and punish those with opposing views. The latest such example was detailed in a column on the site College Fix on how students at Cornell University moved to oust student representatives who voted against disarming and defunding campus...

    In “Bridgerton,” the new Shonda Rhimes period drama on Netflix, the lords and ladies of early 19th century Britain are depicted as Black as well as White. Why? Washington Post television critic Hank Stuever explains it this way: “A Black character stops to explain, grandly, how and why this society came to be integrated. (Answer: because the queen is a person of color.) Not only does it not make much sense, but it seems like an unnecessary wrench thrown into a completely sensible and revisionary romp: People of color are here because they should have been here all along. Isn’t...

    Joe Biden said that he’s running for president to ease the racial divisions of our time. He says he resolved to run after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017, which was proven to be a false statement afterward. Joe Biden needs to stop talking about race. The subject is a tongue twister for Joe Biden, who bluntly says things that are off-color when talking about, well, color. In five decades of public service — including 36 years in the U.S. Senate — Biden has often seemed to be missing a sensitivity filter when race came up. Whether...

    A black physician in Indianapolis has died with Covid-19 weeks after she accused a doctor of denying her proper medical care because of her race. In a video from her bed at Indiana University Hospital North, Susan Moore said she had to "beg" for treatment. Offering its condolences, the hospital said it took accusations of discrimination very seriously but could not comment on specific patients. Black people are at greater risk from Covid than white people, studies show. Dr Moore, 52, passed away at another local hospital on Sunday. In her 4 December post on Facebook, she described how her...

    Gal Gadot has defended her casting as Cleopatra after she was met with accusations of “whitewashing” the upcoming biopic. Critics have said that an Arab or African actress should play the role of the iconic Egyptian leader instead of the 35-year-old Israeli actress. “First of all, if you want to be true to the facts, then Cleopatra was Macedonian,” Gadot told BBC Arabic. “We were looking for a Macedonian actress that could fit Cleopatra. She wasn’t there. And I was very passionate about Cleopatra.”

    The owner of a gas station that was at the center of racial controversy is now selling his business. Following 66 days of non-stop demonstrations outside the Exxon gas station off Flat Shoals Rd, organizer Joe Jones is pleased that the owner is planning to sell. “We sent a clear message that we will no longer tolerate disrespect,” Jones said. Protests started in mid-October after a clerk at the store was caught on camera saying, “I don’t give a [expletive] about the Black neighborhood.” The store’s owner, Rahim Sivji, apologized and parted ways with the clerk. However, Jones said they...
