Protestors can be heard chanting "who do you protect, who do you serve" near a barricaded area that had once been the home of the Confederate statue, "Silent Sam." The statue had stood on campus since it was erected in 1913 to honor students...

    PENDLETON, SC (WSPA) - The death of a high school student in a tragic crash may have sparked a racial divide and caused school threats on social media. It all started with an idea to honor 17 year old Dillon Padgett who was killed in a crash not far from Pendleton High School on Saturday. That idea ended with threats to bring weapons to the school. Padgett is best described by his friends as patriotic. So those grieving friends tell 7News they honored him on Monday at the high school by donning confederate flag shirts and taking a group picture...

    The Amazon series "The Man in The High Castle" is about an alternate universe where the Axis won World War II. Germany occupies the Eastern United States and Japan the West. The nightmarish series isn't easy to watch, especially the last episode of Season 3, where the Nazis decide that to truly wield power, they must eradicate U.S. history. The Statue of Liberty is blown up in New York Harbor and the Liberty Bell melted down and recast as a giant swastika. In New York City, mobs of torch-bearing youth roam the streets chanting "Blood and Soil," and attacking passersby....

    Letters spelling out “Trump Place” on the facades of an Upper West Side building will be pried off by workers Thursday, following a vote from the condo’s board, according to reports. Residents at 200 Riverside Blvd., a 46-story building between 69th and 70th streets, fought for the right to tear the Trump name from their building following the 2016 election, with many people wanting to distance themselves from politics, The New York Times reported. Eric Chung, a longtime resident whose family owns two units in the building, told The Times that removing the letters “makes a very powerful statement.”

    Facebook announced on Wednesday that it is taking new steps to prevent voter suppression by banning fake voting requirement information and hoax reports of violence at polling stations ahead of next month's midterm elections. The move comes as a part of a broader plan from Facebook to remove voter misinformation. Last month, the company said that it would begin banning “misrepresentations about how to vote, such as claims that you can vote by text message, and statements about whether a vote will be counted.” The social media giant also previously introduced a new tool, labeled “Incorrect voting information," to let...

Moments later he wrote, “Yes but do not engage w Crowd at statue. Stay way out.” The statue fell at about 9:30 p.m. Shortly after, the police began to form a...

    President Trump said Wednesday that he has "personal experience" of possible political bias against conservatives by social media giants, citing fluctuations in his number of online followers, and saying alleged bias by companies "may not be legal." Expounding on his recent claims of bias in social media and search results, Trump told reporters at the White House that "I think that Google, and Facebook, and Twitter, I think they treat conservatives and Republicans very unfairly." "I could tell you that I have personal experience, I have a lot of people on the various platforms," Trump said. "I can tell you...

    Facebook’s action means an essential blackout of the military’s main channel of public communication, with pages followed by millions of people in a country where the social media giant is virtually synonymous with the internet. “Specifically, we are banning 20 Burmese individuals and organizations from Facebook — including Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and the military’s Myawady television network,” Facebook said in a blog post. "We're removing a total of 18 Facebook accounts, one Instagram account and 52 Facebook Pages, followed by almost 12 million people," It is the first time Facebook has imposed such...

    Chapel Hill, N.C. — At least seven people were arrested after a group of protesters gathered Saturday on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to demonstrate just days after the controversial Silent Sam statue was toppled.

That man, Casey Becknell, came to the protest from Davidison County to show support for the Silent Sam statue that was torn down when about 300 people gathered...
