    An African-American millionaire and his Manhattan consultant son were victims of a July 4th hate crime in their hotel room during a Florida vacation. A racist creep apparently snuck into Frank and Michael Davis’ room at the upscale Art Ovation Hotel in Sarasota and left a 2-by-5 post-it note reading, “You’re a N—-R.” After returning to their sixth-floor room from breakfast, the Davises found the sickening message placed on a globe-shaped bedside lamp. “I was stone cold for 30 to 40 seconds when I read the note,” Michael Davis, 27, a consultant for a financial firm, told The Post. “My...

    Netflix sacked its chief spokesman Jonathan Friedland, he revealed on Friday, after he used the N-word twice in the space of a few days during meetings with staff. The head of communications announced his departure after being upbraided for a second time for using the racial slur, which is controversial for its ubiquity in hip-hop culture and completely taboo in almost every other context. "I'm leaving Netflix after seven years. Leaders have to be beyond reproach in the example we set and unfortunately I fell short of that standard when I was insensitive in speaking to my team about words...

    In American society, it is widely acknowledged that white people should not say the n-word. Nor should they rap it. Nor should they rap it on stage at a Kendrick Lamar performance in front of thousands of people. One white-appearing woman, identified in a video as "Delaney," learned that lesson the very public way at Alabama's Hangout Festival on Sunday. Lamar invited Delaney onstage during his song "M.A.A.D. City," which chronicles the rapper and recent Pulitzer Prize winner's experiences growing up in Compton. The song contains 15 instances of the slang word "n---a," three of which Delaney rapped with abandon....

    What does it say about the Huffington Post when one of their religion bloggers flat out lies about supposed racial slurs hurled at Congressman John Lewis at the March 20 Tea Party in Washington D.C.? Here is Eddie Glaude, Jr., Professor of Religion at Princeton University, performing his Pinocchio impression: The word n----er found its way back into our national conversation recently. Some tea party activists hurled the epithet at Congressman John Lewis. Along the way they called Representative Barney Frank a faggot and spat on Congressman Emanuel Cleaver. This venom was supposedly provoked by health care reform; it only...

    “Anthropology 212: Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy, and Pornography,” a course on freedom of expression at Princeton University has been “reluctantly” cancelled, Professor Lawrence Rosen informed his students in an email obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD. Rosen’s email, sent at 2:07 p.m. on February 12, went on to say “I think it only fair that you be free, before too much of the semester has passed, to move ahead in another course of your choosing.” Last week Prof. Rosen received national attention for using the N-word in this class on freedom of expression. Some students walked out and protested the...

    Walmart was apologizing on Monday after an appalling description of a product by a third-party vendor made its way onto the retail giant’s website. The retailer was slammed early Monday after the color of a netting weave cap — used as a protective layer between a person’s hair and sewn-in hair extensions — on its site was described as the color “N— Brown.” “Hey @Walmart what are you doing,” Twitter user Kwani Lunis tweeted with a screenshot of the problematic product listing. New York Times best-selling author Roxane Gay condemned the retail chain, tweeting that dropping the N-bomb on their...

    Ice Cube appeared on Bill Maher's HBO show on Friday (June 9), where he addressed Maher for referring to himself as a "house n****r" in a previous episode. The veteran rapper got serious with Maher when he asked him, "What made you think it was ok to say that?" Cube went on to say that it's very hurtful to him anytime a white person says the n-word, even if he says they didn't mean it. He explained, “It’s like a knife, man. When I hear my homies say it, it don’t feel like venom. When I hear a white person...

    An L.A. home owned by LeBron James was the target of a hate crime -- someone spray painted the n-word on the front gate and detectives are now investigating, cops tell TMZ Sports. Here's what we know ... multiple LAPD units and a neighborhood patrol vehicle responded to the home early Wednesday morning. We're told the word was scrawled on the outer gate. We're told investigators are looking for security footage from neighbors which may show the perpetrator. Records show LeBron bought the house back in 2015. The graffiti has since been covered up. We're told LeBron was not at...

    It’s finally happened. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has smacked a Twitter troll into last week. In response to being called a “house n***a,” a disparaging term routinely used by the left to mock black conservatives, Scott fired back with a one-word response. Ouch. The racially insensitive tweet was ultimately deleted — and then the account was too. Some of the Twitter reactions are gold snip As the first black Republican senator since Reconstruction, Scott has had to put up with more than his fair share of racial jabs from his liberal critics. Clearly, he's figured out how to handle it...

    The subjects of a TV documentary series about the Ku Klux Klan abruptly canceled last week by A&E allege to Variety that significant portions of what was filmed were fabricated by the producers. Some KKK leaders divulged that they were paid hundreds of dollars in cash each day of filming to compel them on camera to distort the facts of their lives to fit the documentary’s predetermined narrative: tension between Klan members and relatives of theirs who wanted to get out of the Klan. The findings are based on an exclusive Variety investigation based on interviews with over two dozen...

    ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. -- They've been in classrooms for decades, but two classic American novels are now temporarily banned from Accomack County Public Schools. Use of “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and “To Kill a Mockingbird” were suspended after a parent raised concerns about their use of the N-word. “There's so much racial slurs and defensive wording in there that you can't get past that,” the mother said during last month’s school board meeting. “Right now, we are a nation divided as it is." She filed a complaint through a “Request for Reconsideration of Learning Resources” form.

    CNN host Brooke Baldwin teared up live on TV on Tuesday after a political commentator used a racial slur on her show. The news anchor was visibly shaken after Charles Kaiser, a left-wing author, was discussing recently-appointed Donald Trump adviser Stephen Bannon, who he accused of having previously used the N-word. 'If you don't want to support the alt-right, don't choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word n****r,' Kaiser said. A shocked Baldwin initially raised her eyebrows and let Kaiser continue. Kaiser is a regular on the show and often speaks out against Trump. On...

She was in attendance, actually. Remember how I told you about that last week? Remember how I wondered which wholesome songs he was planning on singing/rapping/doing whatever he does to inspire unity and bring a little class back to the campaign trail? Would he sing about ladies riding d*cks in “I Just Wanna Love You”? Or see how many nasty words he could say consecutively in “Ignorant Sh*t”? (In case you’re wondering, one line in...

    An online petition has gathered more than 1,300 signatures on behalf of a popular Virginia high school teacher who was kicked out of the classroom earlier this month for using a racial slur. The petition claims history teacher Lynne Pierce, who is white, did nothing wrong when she uttered the “N-word” during a discussion with her students at Heritage High School in Newport News about racism, derogatory terms and the nickname of the Washington Redskins. Heritage is 90 percent black.
