Video Shows Immigrant Children Being Dragged and Slapped By Staffers at Arizona Shelter

Video Shows Immigrant Children Being Dragged and Slapped By Staffers at Arizona Shelter
Immigrant children were recorded being dragged, pushed and slapped by staff members at an Arizona shelter in September, according to footage obtained by the Arizona Republic. The incidents allegedly occurred before the federal government suspended the Southwest Key shelter’s operations this fall, according to the outlet. Southwest Key is a Texas-based nonprofit organization that operates shelters for unaccompanied immigrant minors. The organization reported the incidents — they involved three children and staff members in Youngstown, Arizona — in mid-September, reports Arizona Republic. One of the blurred surveillance videos, released by the Arizona Department of Health Services, shows a male staffer dragging and pulling a boy into a room, then slapping him and pushing him against a wall. The staffer strikes him and then leaves the room, the newspaper reports. The boy then goes into the corner and …

Study author suggests that media may play a significant role in disproportionate deaths of unarmed Black men

Study author suggests that media may play a significant role in disproportionate deaths of unarmed Black men
The way that Black men are portrayed in the media contributes to a negative stereotype that affects how the police treats them, says a Rutgers School of Public Health study. The report which was published in late November in the book “Research in Race and Ethnic Relations” asserts that officers often respond to African American men with lethal and excessive force because of the prejudiced perceptions about them, according to Phys.org. “Unarmed Black Americans are five times more likely to be shot and killed by police than unarmed white Americans,” said professor Pamela Valera, a lead author of the study. “We believe that media may play a significant role in these disproportionate deaths.” She added: “The stereotypes held, consciously or unconsciously, about the criminality and ‘dangerousness’ of Black men influence the rates at which they are stopped and engaged by the police.”…

Black teacher in NY school told she’s not allowed to eat ‘whites only’ food in faculty lounge: lawsuit

Black teacher in NY school told she’s not allowed to eat ‘whites only’ food in faculty lounge: lawsuit A new lawsuit filed by a black English teacher at a New York high school claims that she has for years been subjected to shocking racial harassment from both students and from fellow faculty members. NBCNewsreports that Andrea Bryan recently filed a lawsuit against the Commack School District on Long Island, where she has spent the past 17 years working as the district’s only black teacher. Among other things, the suit alleges that Bryan was told by a colleague that a bag of peanuts sitting on the table in the faculty lounge was for “whites only,” and was also asked by the same colleague to “translate slave talk” while reading the part of a black character in Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.” Even though her complaint about this colleague did get him demoted, she says that she subsequently “was ostracized and made a pariah within the department” for her actions. And just last year, Bryan al…

California Women’s March rally canceled over concerns that it would be ‘overwhelmingly white’

California Women’s March rally canceled over concerns that it would be ‘overwhelmingly white’
A Women’s March group is canceling its January rally in Humboldt County, Calif., over concerns that its participants would be “overwhelmingly white.” The decision comes amid division and tension in the broader Women’s March movement, which has unified millions of women and men in protest in the past two years. Organizers of the 2019 Eureka Women’s March, originally scheduled for Jan. 19, said in a statement that the decision came after numerous conversations with leading local activists and supporters of the march. “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the Facebook statement read. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.” The Eureka group, which does not appear to be an official California chapter of the Women’s March, said it w…

Miami Dolphins' Robert Quinn complains about lack of coverage for his protest during national anthem

Miami Dolphins' Robert Quinn complains about lack of coverage for his protest during national anthem
Colin Kaepernick has received a ton of publicity for his protests during the national anthem, but he can't seem to find a job in the NFL. Miami Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn has the opposite problem. Quinn lashed out at reporters Thursday over the lack of coverage he’s received over his fist-raised protest during the national anthem, something he's done since joining the Dolphins in the offseason, according to the Miami Herald. “Y’all ignore it. Because when I gave my first message on trying to bring unity, y’all swept it under the rug. It’s not me. When you don’t give a problematic story, y’all just ran away,” Quinn said. “You’ve got this lady named Cyntoia Brown, or whatever her name is, and you sent her to life in prison because she was being sex trafficked,” he said, referencing a woman who was sentenced to life in prison for a murder she committed when she was 16…

Black teacher claims LI school district ignored rampant racism

Black teacher claims LI school district ignored rampant racism
Teachers in a Long Island school district allegedly did their best to keep the workplace “for whites only,” says a black educator who claims she endured years of racial discrimination there. English teacher Andrea Bryan alleges that the Commack school district, where she’s been the only black instructor for 17 years, has long ignored her complaints and pleas for help. When she asked if food in a staff lounge was for everyone, a popular coworker responded, “for whites only,” Bryan claims in a suit in Manhattan Federal Court. The same teacher asked her, “Andrea, can you translate slave talk for me?” referring to a black character in Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” Bryan charges. When she complained and the colleague was demoted, Bryan said she “was ostracized and made a pariah within the department,” according to the suit. Another coworker ignored Bryan when she tried to ask a question during a professional training session,…

What are they complaining about?

What are they complaining about?
Choose to have an abortion, the state pays for it through government funds. Choose to have the child, the state pays for it through government funds. Both decisions are legal. Both decisions are made by millions of females. Both decisions are paid for by the federal government (Hyde Amendment, Medicaid, Vouchers, Fee Assistance, Subsides), So why are both sides fighting? Either way your gonna get paid. One side says that their fighting for lives, but its not their child who's dying. The other side says they're fighting for their right to choose. But that desicion has already been made (Row v Wade). Neither side pays out of their own pocket for either decision. That being said, So it brings up the question, what are both sides complaining about? Are pro-choicers and pro-lifers fighting over the lives of children and the right to choose? Or are both sides simply fighting for extras to rights that they already have? Ahh.>3 Patreon.com/theiconiu…

Eric Reid Not Sure What To Expect In Free Agency After Standout Season

Eric Reid Not Sure What To Expect In Free Agency After Standout Season
On the surface, Eric Reid should be one of the most sought-after safeties in the NFL when he re-enters the free agent market this offseason. The 27-year-old has put together a terrific season despite not joining the Panthers until late September. Entering Carolina’s Week 17 matchup with the Saints, Reid has 66 tackles, three for a loss, one QB hit, one sack, one interception and five passes defended in 12 games. He’s far exceeded the value of the one-year, $1.39 million contract that landed him with the Panthers. Now, he’s looking for “market value,” according to The Charlotte Observer’s Marcel Louis-Jacques. While Reid’s play this season has warranted a handsome payday, stats likely won’t be the only factor teams consider when weighing whether or not to sign him. Reid, a former 49er and social justice protest partner of Colin Kaepernick’s — he’s continued to kneel during the national anthem while Kaepernick remain…

Young Turks: Culture War Over! Nike, Kaepernick Led Progressives To Victory!

Young Turks: Culture War Over! Nike, Kaepernick Led Progressives To Victory!
The progressive flag-waving founder of The Young Turks Network says Nike's Colin Kaepernick campaign serves as proof that progressives have won the culture wars. He also hopes the former San Francisco quarterback wins enough money in his collusion lawsuit against the NFL to buy a team. Cenk Uygur (appropriately seated on the far left in panel photo) made these declarations on The Young Turks' Thursday Youtube video program, "In 2019 Ban Bill Belichick And Hire Colin Kaepernick." In a review of 2018, The Young Turks panel members unanimously supported Kaepernick and said New England Patriots' coach Bill Belicheck is the one deserving of a ban by the NFL for cheating. Unlike NFL players who have beaten up women, driven drunk or "shot a gun," the ex-49er Kaepernick never physically harmed anybody, The Young Turks, who aren't actually all that young, agreed. Uygur took control …

Politico draws heat for article featuring almost-exclusively White historians
The political journalism outlet asked 16 of the "smartest historians" to reflect on what the history books will say about 2018. Readers were quick to point out that the historians were almost uniformly White. Professor @KeishaBlain encouraged followers to list some non-White historians for future consideration.Photo via @santia6812 Article in question: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/12/28/what-will-history-books-say-about-2018-223561

Pro-Trump physical therapist admits he uses the N-word 'all the time' in bungled defense of racist referee

Pro-Trump physical therapist admits he uses the N-word 'all the time' in bungled defense of racist referee: A white man who is a fan of Donald Trump tried to defend a racist referee in New Jersey — by admitting that he and his friends use racial slurs regularly. After feminist author Jill Filipovic wrote a column for CNN detailing why the referee who forced a black wrestler to cut off his dreadlocks is an example of all-American racism, she received a self-incriminating email from a Texan physical therapist. “This email is… something,” …

Senate Republicans, follow Tim Scott's lead. Reject judges with records tainted by racism.

Senate Republicans, follow Tim Scott's lead. Reject judges with records tainted by racism. Of all the sad examples of unqualified judicial nominees put forward by President Donald Trump, few were more confounding than the case of Thomas Farr. Farr was a known protégé of one of North Carolina’s most notoriously racist politicians, the late Sen. Jesse Helms. Early in Farr’s nomination, damning evidence emerged that Farr not only defended, but also likely took part in, a Helms campaign scheme to scare African-American voters away from the polls. The plot involved threatening postcards mailed to citizens’ homes, with misleading warnings of possible arrest should they try to vote.  It was an egregious episode in our nation’s racist past, and it was not a secret. But a central player, Farr, seemed on track to cruise to confirmation as a federal judge in North Carolina’s Eastern District this year. Only at the 11th hour was his confirmation derailed by opposition from South Carolina’s Sen. …

A pregnant mother of two was found dead in a Madison County, Mississippi jail cell after complaining to jail officials of stomach pains

A pregnant mother of two was found dead in a Madison County, Mississippi jail cell after complaining to jail officials of stomach pains A pregnant mother of two was found dead in a Madison County, Mississippi jail cell sometime last week after complaining to jail officials of stomach pains, her family says. Now, the family of 37-year-old Lanekia Michelle Brown is trying to piece together what happened to her in a death they deem “very suspicious.” “We talked to her and she was okay. If she had any kind of problems, she would have let us know,” a family member told CBS affiliate WJTV. Brown was three or four weeks pregnant, her family says, and had no previous health issues. She was being held at the Madison County Detention Center, where she was awaiting trial for a felony charge of trafficking a controlled substance. It’s not clear whether Brown couldn’t make bail prior to her trial or was denied it. It’s also unclear when Brown died. According to WJTV, a Mississippi Highway Patrol Of…

WATCH: Knife-wielding white woman threatens black family while yelling the n-word

WATCH: Knife-wielding white woman threatens black family while yelling the n-word A racist woman this week was caught on camera threatening a black family with a knife while shouting racial slurs. TheOregonianreports that 20-year-old Emora Roberson this week filmed an unidentified white woman screaming at her and her family because they supposedly did a poor job of parking their car next to her pickup truck. After Roberson’s boyfriend, Keysuan Goodyear, warned the woman to back off, she pulled out a knife and continued her racist tirade against the couple and Roberson’s aunt, who had driven them to the local strip mall to pick up a last-minute Christmas gift. At this point, Roberson took out her phone and started filming the woman, who can be seen holding a knife in the video. “It’s called self-defense, you stupid n*gger b*tch!” the woman screams at Roberson when she accuses her of trying to stab her boyfriend. “Who the f*ck are you calling a n*gger?” Roberson shouts back. “You, motherf*cker…
