    A former staffer for the Washington football team now called the Commanders accused her boss of using “Jewish slurs” and other forms of verbal harassment during her time with the organization. “I was called Jewish slurs that refer to a non-Jewish woman that you are sexualizing,” Emily Applegate said Thursday during testimony to the US House of Representatives Oversight Committee, which is probing allegations of harassment and misconduct within the NFL franchise. “A slur which I will not repeat a rabbi described as ‘simply indefensible, condescending, racist, and misogynistic.'” Applegate did not name her boss in the testimony, but The...

Prosecutors said Freidmann, 53, of Oak Park, started yelling and honking in his Jaguar stopped behind the woman, who was parked outside a Jewel-Osco with her 7-year-old daughter.

He was eventually escorted to a waiting SUV, and protesters threw water bottles at the vehicle as it drove away. Mount Laurel police said they responded to a report shortly before 8 p.m. Friday from a resident who said she and her family were being...

    After a popular Filipino food truck was vandalized with anti-Asian slurs, the owners received unexpected help from Utah Jazz player Jordan Clarkson. Ben Pierce said he woke up Sunday morning in Layton, about 25 miles from Salt Lake City, to find his World Famous Yum Yum Food Truck vandalized with hateful messages painted across the black exterior. Pierce owns the truck with his 21-year-old son, Brevin, and they shared the graffiti images on social media. "We are not going to have hatred stop us from sharing our culture," they wrote.

    Meryl Streep’s nephew allegedly hurled racist slurs in a road-rage incident in East Hampton, the victim’s lawyer said Wednesday, as photos of the teen’s horrific head injuries emerged. David Peralta, 18, filed a lawsuit against Charles Harrison Streep over the alleged beatdown on Aug. 24, which required emergency surgery to relieve pressure in his brain, attorney Edmond Chakmakian told The Post. The John Jay College student and aspiring detective, who lives in East Hampton, is now facing significant cognitive difficulties.

    At 76, Joe Biden is one the oldest people to ever mount a presidential campaign, and in his first speech as a presidential candidate Monday, it showed. The Pennsylvania native and former vice president — who just announced his third attempt at a run for the White House — repeatedly stumbled and slurred his way through his brief, 27-minute remarks in Pittsburgh Monday. His almost every sentence was peppered with verbal stumbles. He opened: “I want to thank Rich Fritzgerald, the county executive for — the baladanny — the Alleghengy County executive for being here.” “The country wasn’t built by...

    The NFL's competition committee is expected to enact a rule at their March owners meeting that would penalize players fifteen yards if they use the n-word on the field. John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which monitors diversity in the league, told ESPN that he thinks the automatic fifteen-yard penalty should apply to first-time offenders, while second infractions should be punished with ejection. "I will be totally shocked if the competition committee does not uphold us on what we're trying to do," Wooten said. "We want this word to be policed from the parking lot to the...

    A black Brit on his way to the U.S. wants to know if his use of the word will be offensive—and whether he should care.“Niggardly.” Go on, I dare you. Say it. Savor those syllables. Let your tongue caress those consonants. If you’re black and reading this, you may well have just laughed, smiled knowingly, been confused or even taken offense, depending on the size of your vocabulary. If you’re white and reading this, you will probably have just experienced a mild frisson of linguistic danger, as you are either fully aware of the ramifications that your verbalizing the word...

    Espn host and former Jets defensive star Hugh Douglas hit a co-host below the belt in a drunken tirade at a Florida bar — calling him “Uncle Tom’’ and a “house n----r,’’ sources said. The hulking Douglas, 41, spit the slurs at “Numbers Never Lie’’ colleague Michael Smith after the boozed-up Douglas made a move to the deejay’s microphone at the House of Blues on Friday in Orlando, and Smith tried to stop Douglas from embarrassing himself, according to the Web site Deadspin.

    One of the strangest things I ever saw was the rapper Ice-T waltzing — not figuratively, but literally — across a stage in Dallas with Perry Farrell, the slightly fey singer from the band Jane’s Addiction, as the two sang a duet of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Don’t Call Me Nigger, Whitey.” This was in 1991, and though young black men had been using the word “nigger” — or, if you prefer, “nigga” — casually for some time, it was unusual for me to hear a white man under 60 using the word at all, much less repeatedly, much...

    Editor's note: Sandra Fluke is a third-year law student at Georgetown University Law Center and has served as president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice. (CNN) -- Last month, students from several Catholic universities gathered to send a message to the nation that contraception is basic health care. I was among them, and I was proud to share the stories of my friends at Georgetown Law who have suffered dire medical consequences because our student insurance does not cover contraception for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. I joined these students in speaking at a media event because I believe...

    I'm sorry Rush Limbaugh called 30-year-old Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a "slut." She's really just another professional femme-a-gogue helping to manufacture a false narrative about the GOP "war on women." I'm sorry the civility police now have an opening to demonize the entire right based on one radio comment -- because it's the progressive left in this country that has viciously and systematically slimed female conservatives for their beliefs. We have the well-worn battle scars to prove it. And no, we don't need coddling phone calls from the pandering president of the United States to convince us to stand...

    ATLANTA -- Herman Cain on Monday pre-emptively denied a forthcoming accusation by a woman who is expected to say she had a 13-year affair with the Republican presidential candidate. In an apparent effort to get ahead of the story, Cain appeared in a cable news interview to say the woman is "someone who I know, who is an acquaintance, who I thought was a friend." released some details of the story, which is scheduled to air Monday night, shortly after Cain appeared on CNN -- identifying the accuser as an Atlanta businesswoman named Ginger White. "It was pretty simple,"...
