Tell Amazon & Apple: Reject Racism and Say No to North Carolina’s Racist Attacks on Voting Rights

Tell Amazon & Apple: Reject Racism and Say No to North Carolina’s Racist Attacks on Voting Rights

Until recently, my home state of North Carolina had a reputation as a forward-thinking, “beacon” of the South - a mantle we held for decades. But for the last five years, politicians in the North Carolina General Assembly (NCGA) have been working to block eligible Black people from voting. Sound familiar? It should. In 2016, North Carolina made national news when a federal court struck down our racist voter ID law because it targeted Black people with “almost surgical precision.” Now, those same state legislators are back with a new racist voter ID state constitutional amendment that’s effectively identical to that unconstitutional, bigoted law. They think they can get away with it this time because the public is distracted, tired, and bored of talking about Black people being denied their franchise. I say, like hell we are. As a Black North Carolinian and high school graduate from th…

A student showed up to school in a KKK costume -- reportedly with his teacher's approval

A student who showed up to high school dressed as a Ku Klux Klansman did so as part of an assignment -- reportedly with advance approval from a teacher. Still, the head-to-toe costume -- complete with infamous conical hood and a white, fabric mask with two holes for eyes -- sparked outrage when classmates saw the student outside a history class at Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy in Wilmington, California, then learned the outfit was teacher-sanctioned, CNN affiliate KABC reported. "It kind of rattled me. It was hard to believe that (the teacher) would allow a Klansman to walk around from her approval. So, we asked her, and she ... compared the Klan to the Black Panther Party, which in my opinion are two different things," rising senior Trinity Young told KABC. "So yeah, it was troubling."

On Colin Kaepernick, NFL protests and the artist he inspired

On Colin Kaepernick, NFL protests and the artist he inspired

The anthem argument is beyond tired. It’s been resurrected, again – and we’ll count bodies on the sidelines next fall, again – because NFL commissioner Roger Goodelland (most of) his owners were dumb enough to think a confusing new policy, which will fine players who kneel but allow them to stay in the locker room, would quiet President Donald Trump. It won’t. This is his favorite diversion from issues of more importance. He’ll continue to scream that the peaceful protesters who have explained countless times they’re bringing light to social issues and not attacking the flag are, in fact, attacking the flag. Both sides will keep going around and around on it. In the meantime, some have moved on and converted the discussion into action.

Trump’s most visible black supporters are not faithful Republicans

Trump’s most visible black supporters are not faithful Republicans

Dennis Rodman’s tearful declaration of his affection for Donald Trump this week was reminiscent of Kanye West’s defiant insistence a few weeks ago that the president is “my brother.” Sporting red baseball caps with Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” both men defended their embrace of a political figure who consistently scores high negative ratings in polls among African Americans. Rodman, a former basketball player with the Chicago Bulls who has five NBA championship rings, was in Singapore this week for the historic summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Rodman wept during an interview with CNN as he praised both men and said he was “so happy” that they had started the process toward peace.

Commentary Magazine’s ‘Negro Problem’

Commentary Magazine’s ‘Negro Problem
In a notorious 1963 essay titled “My Negro Problem–And Ours” Norman Podhoretz, the editor of Commentarywrote of to “the insane rage” he felt “at the thought of Negro anti-Semitism.” Podhoretz didn’t elucidate why “Negro anti-Semitism,” which manifested itself most visibly in the ravings of the Nation of Islam, should be any worse than white anti-Semitism—which, after all, was responsible for centuries of persecutions, pogroms, and, ultimately, the Holocaust. But in the pages of Commentarymagazine, which Podhoretz edited from 1960 to 1995, other writers frequently took up the theme, airing their anxiety that the rise of African-American political activism would undermine the interests of Jewish Americans. Commentary magazine is now edited by John Podhoretz, Norman’s son. And its June issue, which came online last month and began receiving critical attention this week, is about racial tension. “African Americans Vs. American Jews” announces the cove…

Emails show former Sheriff David Clarke's tense and protracted process to retain master's degree

Emails show former Sheriff David Clarke's tense and protracted process to retain master's degree

Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has retained his master's degree in security studies from the Naval Postgraduate School after a lengthy revision process to correct multiple instances of plagiarism in his thesis. The revision process was initiated last year after CNN's KFile reported that sections of the controversial sheriff's 2013 paper, titled "Making U.S. security and privacy rights compatible," were lifted word for word from sources ranging from the ACLU to former President George W. Bush. In all the instances KFile found, Clarke credited sources with a footnote but did not indicate with quotation marks that he was using the language verbatim. At the time of the initial report, Clarke had announced that he would be joining President Donald Trump's administration as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. Clarkedid no…

"Baby Daddy" Father's Day card pulled from shelves; American Greetings, Target, apologize
American Greetings, the world's biggest's producer of greeting cards, says an attempt at being "playful" missed the mark, and as a result it's pulling a Father's Day card from retail shelves nationwide. 
The card in question, sold at about 5,300 big box, drug and grocery stores across the country, shows a black couple kissing with the phrase "Baby Daddy" in the forefront. Inside, the card reads: "You're a wonderful husband and father -- and I'm so grateful to have you as my partner, my friend, and my baby daddy! Happy Father's Day."
After coming across the card at a Target store last month, an angry Takeisha Saunders took to social media: ""You CANNOT be serious Target!!!! Really!!!?!!!!? This was the only Father's Day card that featured a black couple!!!!!!" noted the Dallas resident, who added the hashtags …

Apple Is Adding A New Feature That Prevents Police From Unlocking iPhones

It would prevent firms like Cellebrite, which reportedly helped the FBI in the San Bernardino case, from gaining access to locked devices.
Last week, at Apple's annual developer conference, the company unveiled the latest version of its operating system for iPhone and iPad, iOS 12. In addition to tools to break youriPhone addiction, "Memojis," and group FaceTime, Apple is also rolling out a new security feature in the update called USB Restricted Mode, which prevents tools used by law enforcement to unlock devices, reportsMotherboard.

School Board Member Blames Her Racist Facebook Posts on Michelle Obama, NFL Protesters

School Board Member Blames Her Racist Facebook Posts on Michelle Obama, NFL Protesters

Donna Pike, a member of the Jefferson County School Board, recently sharing a meme about Obama Administration senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, invoking the sentiments of the now-infamous tweet by noted conspiracy theorist, and Trump supporter Rosanne Barr, calling the former Obama Administration senior advisor a “Muslim born in Iran.”
“She’s not a Muslim, she’s an American” Chaverst told the members of the board about Jarrett. “But your school board member stands with Roseanne.” Chavers went on to show other racist-adjacent memes posted by Pike, including one of Michelle Obama refusing to salute the flag. Pike shooed Chaverst away with her hand as he explained:
“I shared it, and I’m not sorry I did,” said Pike. “And I meant it because it shows hypocrisy in our country. Some people can get away with it and some people can’t. It was not racist.” Apparently unaware that First Lady is neither an elected n…

Charges filed against Oakland’s ‘Jogger Joe’ as case shows immense power of shared videos

Charges filed against Oakland’s ‘Jogger Joe’ as case shows immense power of shared videos

Henry Sintay was arrested on suspicion of robbery on Monday, June 11, 2018, after he was confronted for throwing away a homeless man's possessions in Oakland.
An Oakland man who became known as “Jogger Joe” when he paused during a run to throw away a homeless man’s makeshift camp beside Lake Merritt was charged Wednesday with robbery in a case that displays the growing power of videos people share on social media in an effort to gain instant justice. The episode — seen by many as a testament to community action, but by one of the jogger’s friends as a glimpse into online extremes — began Friday when 30-year-old Henry William Sintay was confronted by bystanders at the lake. They filmed him as he discarded the homeless man’s clothing and other possessions. Sintay responded that he was simply cleaning up heaps of trash.

Trump embraces candidate with racist ties

Meet Pool Patty, The White Woman Who Called The Police On Black People Swimming

Meet Pool Patty, The White Woman Who Called The Police On Black People Swimming

Last month, we all got to know Jennifer Schulte, the white woman who called the cops on Black people enjoying a barbecue — and she rightfully earned the nickname BBQ Becky. Well, now there’s a new racist in town, and her name is Pool Patty! Pool Patty was apparently randomly harassing Black people at a pool, although it wasn’t clear where. But according to a video posted to Facebook by a user named Serenity Jackson, she appeared to be upset because she was turned down after asking a Black woman to talk to her because she was “depressed.” Pool Patty, who also appeared to be drunk on the viral video, then called the police. Only the officer wasn’t here for it.

GOP congressional candidate: Diversity is 'a bunch of crap and un-American'

GOP congressional candidate: Diversity is 'a bunch of crap and un-American'

Washington (CNN)A Republican running for New Jersey's 2nd Congressional District thinks diversity is "a bunch of crap and un-American," according to comments he made in a video posted to YouTube by a progressive super PAC. "In my view, the best way to bring diversity to the Republican Party is for Republicans to openly say that the whole idea of diversity is a bunch of crap and un-American," Seth Grossman can be seen saying in the video uploaded on June 6 by American Bridge 21st Century, which monitors GOP candidates. In the video, Grossman goes on to quote the Declaration of Independence and says, "the Constitution was designed to incorporate that idea of the Declaration of Independence that everybody is treated equally under the law. Now, what diversity has become, it's been an excuse by Democrats, communists and socialists, basically, to say that we're not all cre…

Black firefighter takes heat after taking knee at police-fire football game

Black firefighter takes heat after taking knee at police-fire football game

Camron McGarity, an African-American firefighter, kneeled while the Star Spangled Banner was being played before the CFD Blaze faced off against the Chicago Police Department’s Enforcers last Saturday in the eighth annual “First Responders Bowl.” A photo of the protest clearly shows the firefighter, wearing the No. 7 jersey, kneeling on the sidelines while players on either side stood at attention dressed in bright red jerseys and matching red pants. Fired Chicago Police Superintendent-turned-mayoral-challenger Garry McCarthy, who was at the game at Brother Rice High School on the Southwest Side, said the solo protest generated plenty of “grumbling” among the crowd of roughly 1,000, in part, because the game was dedicated to the memory of slain 18th District Commander Paul Bauer and former dive team member Juan Bucio, who died during a Memorial Day rescueon the Chicago River.

Guns, emojis a volatile mix as gangs embrace social media




Gangs' embrace of social media to goad foes or conceal drug dealing in emoji-laden text is the biggest change in how gangs operate compared with 10 years ago, according to new law enforcement data provided exclusively to The Associated Press ahead of its release Tuesday by the Chicago Crime Commission. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other sites have radically altered gang culture in Chicago. They are having a similar influence on gangs nationwide. These days, there's nearly always a link between an outbreak of gang violence and something online, said Rodney Phillips, a gang-conflict mediator working in the low-income Englewood neighborhood where Reese lived and died. When he learns simmering tensions have spilled into violence, he no longer goes first to the streets.

African Immigrants Excel Academically. Why Don’t African Americans?

African Immigrants Excel Academically. Why Don’t African Americans?

On average, black students achieve less academically than white students. They have worse grades, lower test scores, meager graduation rates and fewer achieve advanced degrees. The question is – why? Why does pigmentation matter so much in this country? What about it brings such negative academic consequences? This is especially apt since it doesn’t apply to foreign born black students who come here to study or those who recently emigrated here. In fact, they see just the opposite effect – they earn some of the best grades, have some of the highest test scores, and disproportionately graduate from high school and achieve advanced degrees. This is something that distinguishes foreign-born Africans – especially those from Sub-Saharan Africa – even from other immigrants. African immigrants sit near the top of the scale of so-called model minorities.
