    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban delivered a message for “white people” on social media in the wake of the police-involved death of George Floyd and the protests it sparked. Cuban, who was in Dallas on Sunday to participate in a vigil to honor the memory of Floyd, tweeted a letter from Emerson College president M. Lee Pelton and wrote that white people need to make a change in their lives. “Dear White People: We are the ones that need to change. This is not one man's story. This is almost every black man's story. Which is why the problem is...

    Amid protests across the country in the wake of George Floyd's death, a University of Alabama at Birmingham professor provided a step-by-step guide along with a figure drawing explaining how protesters can "topple" Confederate monuments. Sarah Parcak, a well-known archaeologist who received a Guggenheim fellowship in 2020, shared on Sunday "handy" information about how to destroy public property she considered "racist." "PSA For ANYONE who might be interested in how to pull down an obelisk* safely from an Egyptologist who never ever in a million years thought this advice might come in handy," Parcak tweeted. "*might be masquerading as a...

    Various domestic terror groups on BOTH far left & right are instigating & committing acts of violence & looting. They are stealing the focus away from the murder of Mr. Floyd & the legitimate problems it revealed. — Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) May 31, 2020 Rep. Paul Gosar doesn’t agree: I don’t agree with this equivocation. There is no evidence of “right wing” groups involved in any of this. It’s all Antifa and BLM and the like. — Paul Gosar (@DrPaulGosar)

    Spike Lee spoke out in late April against movie theaters re-opening amid the coronavirus pandemic, and now the Oscar winner tells Vanity Fair he most likely will not be going to movie theaters until there is a vaccine for the virus being distributed. Lee is releasing his new film, the Vietnam War drama “Da 5 Bloods,” straight to Netflix on June 12. The director was supposed to begin production this summer on an adaptation of the graphic novel “Prince of Cats” for Legendary Pictures, but Lee told Vanity Fair he doesn’t see filming on any Hollywood production happening anytime soon....

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer slammed the protesters who gathered inside the state's Capitol building on Thursday to demand she rescind her stay-at-home orders, saying they represented the “worst racism and awful parts” of U.S. history. “Some of the outrageousness of what happened at our capitol depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country,” Whitmer said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The behavior you've seen in all of the clips is not representative of who we are in Michigan,” she added.

    Janeal Wright says he hasn’t been the same since his two friends were gunned down in 2018. The double shooting on the West Side claimed the lives of Darius Brown and Johnathan Jeter, both 23. The absence of their laughter and generosity was “heartbreaking,” he recalled Wednesday. He became afraid of staying in the Austin neighborhood, wondering if he would be next. “It was monumental, that event,” Wright, 26, said Wednesday. “That was the first dramatic event I ever really took to heart. … I didn’t really heal from it.” Consumed by the gun violence on the West Side, Wright...

    There has already been reason to suspect that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is daydreaming more than usual about creating a socialist utopia in the midst of this crisis. The other day she said on Twitter that the collapse of oil prices was wonderful to see, ignoring the fact that it could mean hundreds of thousands of people will be out of work soon.AOC quickly pulled down the tweet in question and never really tried to defend the idea massive job losses were good news. But today there’s a preview of an interview she did with Vice in which she suggests...

    Piers Morgan said he is horrified by how his “friend” President Trump is handling the coronavirus crisis. The British media personality said Trump has turned his daily briefings on the pandemic into a partisan affair, which Morgan argued shows Trump is more concerned with winning November’s election than saving lives. "I've known him a long time. I consider him to be a friend, but I've been watching these daily briefings with mounting horror, frankly, because this is not what the president should be doing. He won't want me saying this, but I'm gonna say it anyway," Morgan told CNN’s Reliable...

    President Donald Trump has fired the intelligence community’s chief watchdog, Michael Atkinson, who was the first to sound the alarm to Congress last September about an “urgent” complaint he’d received from an intelligence official involving Trump’s communications with Ukraine’s president. Trump formally notified the Senate and House intelligence committees of his intention to fire Atkinson and remove him from his duties, to take effect 30 days from Friday, according to two congressional officials and a copy of the letter obtained by POLITICO dated April 3. “This is to advise that I am exercising my power as President to remove from...

    Americans shouldn’t assume hydroxychloroquine is a “knockout drug” in preventing or treating COVID-19, White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Friday. “We still need to do the definitive studies to determine whether any intervention, not just this one, is truly safe and effective,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Fox News. “But when you don’t have that information, it’s understandable why people might want to take something anyway even with the slightest hint of being effective.”

    SAN PEDRO, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- An engineer deliberately ran a train off the tracks at high speed near the Port of Los Angeles in an attempt to crash into and damage the USNS Mercy hospital ship, prosecutors say. The Pacific Harbor Line train derailed Tuesday, running through the end of the track and crashing through barriers, finally coming to rest about 250 yards from the docked naval ship. Federal prosecutors allege train engineer Eduardo Moreno, 44, of San Pedro intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they...

This is no joke. I salute housekeepers around the globe, doing your best to keep your families well, safe and alive.”

    While I initially wasn’t sure how this could work in terms of actual prosecutions, arrests of people who violate shelter in place orders or bans on larger gatherings have been taking place. It started with hosts of parties in New Jersey and Maryland being hauled in by the cops over the weekend. Yesterday we received a bit of foreshadowing that houses of worship were under scrutiny when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to start shutting down churches and synagogues, perhaps permanently. And now, in Florida, we’ve seen what may be the clearest sign of these dystopian...
