    Lin-Manuel Miranda issued an apology to fans of Hamilton for the Broadway show’s failure to publicly denounce systemic racism sooner on Saturday. The 40-year-old playwright and actor also affirmed the show’s support for the Black Lives Matter, as protests have roiled major cities across the nation in the wake of the death of George Floyd. He began his short Twitter statement by pointing out how quickly the show was to respond to previous crises and incidents of racism and hatred. “We spoke out on the day of the Pulse shooting. We spoke out when Vice President Mike Pence came to...

    Snopes fact-checker Jessica Lee has deleted her earlier tweets about hearing a gunshot outside her home because she’d rather not make a big thing about it online … anymore. I deleted earlier tweets about a gunshot outside my home. Law enforcement has been called, and for my safety, I’d rather not be at the center of any online debate about it. Thanks for understanding. — Jessica Lee (@byjlee) May 30, 2020 The tweet she deleted said that she’d witnessed a big white truck with a MAGA hat. Must have been a big hat.

    EXCLUSIVE: ABC News will present three days of special coverage to how the coronavirus has reflected, exposed or exacerbated racial, ethnic and socioeconomic divides. Starting on Wednesday, the reports, titled Pandemic — A Nation Divided, will appear across all of the network’s platforms. The series is rooted in statistics showing a disproportionate impact of the virus on African Americans and Latinos and other communities. For instance, in New York City, African Americans are twice as likely to die of the virus, according to the network. In Washington, D.C., Latinos have been seven times more likely to be infected than white...

    On Tuesday, the hosts of CBS This Morning warned viewers that common words and phrases with no racial context whatsoever were now somehow examples of “racism” in everyday life. It was all part of a segment designed to promote a “new book teaching kids the roots of racism.” “Many headlines referred to the stock market plunge yesterday as ‘Black Monday,’ and that is just one of the subtle and not-so-subtle ways that racism has been braided into our everyday culture,” co-host Tony Dokoupil lectured at the top of the 8:30 a.m. ET half hour

    Imagine you’re trying to count every single person living in the United States. There are two main ways that you can mess up; you can count some people twice and you can miss some people out. In 2010, the Census Bureau made both mistakes, as it always does, because counting people is hard. It double-counted about 3% of people and omitted another 3% and, because those mistakes work in opposite directions, the overall population count was almost perfectly accurate. What’s revealing though is who gets counted twice and who gets left out altogether. That’s where race has historically played a...

    As we head back to South Carolina, the state that fought to protect the white primary until the 1950s, it’s as if black voters don’t matter – again In 1896, a moment marked by increased lynchings, violence and disfranchisement, South Carolina added to the woes and created the white primary. The law, which the rest of the one-party south would adopt throughout the Jim Crow era, said only white people could vote in the Democratic primary election. White people, mostly men, would alone choose who would go on to the general election in November. Then, and only then could African...

    NBC "News" ^ | December 16, 2019 | By Emily Walton
    At a recent rally, President Donald Trump got cheers from supporters as he positioned himself and his administration as an important line of defense in the supposed “War on Thanksgiving,” an evocative image of the threat posed by progressives to America’s cherished cultural traditions, as they wish to include a more inclusive narrative of the holiday’s history. A clearer example of the racially divisive attitudes harbored and perhaps even enabled by this administration is represented by White House adviser, Stephen Miller. Miller was recently found to have written hundreds of emails demonstrating his support for white nationalist ideology. Whether spinning...

    Two 17-year-old boys accused of harassing four African-American middle schoolgirls — using racial slurs and urinating on one of the victims — are facing charges including bias intimidation and lewdness. Police say the boys are of Indian descent. Instead of asking what the boys’ reported racial identity tells us about the nature of the attack, we should see the boys as enacting American whiteness through anti-black assault in a very traditional way.

    A day before President Trump addressed the annual gathering of the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago, Sen.

    Professor blames Trump and racism for black women’s overweight issues A Rutgers University professor linked President Trump's policies and racism in the U.S. to African American women's obesity issues during an appearance on "Black Women OWN the Conversation” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The story: Brittney Cooper, a gender studies professor, argued that the lack of access to necessary health care and the stress black women experience because of discrimination affects their metabolism and enhances the struggles they face when trying to lose weight. “I hate when people talk about Black women being obese. I hate it because it becomes...

    Vox tried teeing this up yesterday while distancing themselves from the truth, but the Washington Post delivers on its fact-check against Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. Both Democratic presidential candidates campaigned last week on the need to solve the “murder” of Michael Brown in Ferguson five years ago. Chief fact-checker Glenn Kessler calls them both out for their “galling” refusal to acknowledge that the Department of Justice found plenty of witnesses to contradict the charge that Brown had been “murdered”: Witness 102, a 27-year-old biracial man: “Brown was ‘wrestling’ through the window, but he was unable to see what...

    I am sick and tired of being called a racist by the race baiting left. Show me the "N" word, or other direct derogatory term. Creating racial discord for words like invasion, illegal immigrates, Muslims (not a race, it is a religion), etc. is just race baiting. And white nationalists. OK, they exist, but I do not ever remember meeting any. All the Trump supporters I know are good decent Americans. So I hope Trump remains "unpresidential" and specifically calls out the race baiting Anti-American Democrat presidential candidates as such. While I understand the red flag issue, who defines it?...

One candidate, Sally Boynton Brown, the executive director of Idaho's Democratic Party, urged Democrats to provide "training" to teach people to be "sensitive" and "how to shut their mouths if they are white." "My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt," Brown said. SALLY BOYNTON BROWN: I’m a white woman, I don’t get it...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday blasted President Trump’s push for a citizenship question on the 2020 census as an effort to “Make America White Again” — claiming, “it’s not what our founders had in mind.”“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted,” Pelosi said at a press conference in San Francisco that focused on election security.“Just their people vote and not the general population,” said the Democratic lawmaker. “That’s why they’re fighting the census.”White House officials did not immediately return requests for comment from The Post on the statements.Pelosi, who was visiting her home district Monday, repeatedly called the idea...

    Emily Bonilla is worried her district in metro Orlando will be undercounted during next spring’s once-in-a-decade head count of everybody in the United States because of who lives there: new arrivals, immigrants, the poor, renters and rural residents who sometimes regard government with suspicion. “We’re growing so fast that I know we have more people in the area than the data is stating. This area already is undercounted,” said Bonilla, a county commissioner in one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the U.S. With the 2020 census count less than a year away, a new report says undercounting certain populations...

    The long arm of the PC police has reached back to the ’30s and arrested, prosecuted, and sentenced the late singer Kate Smith. Smith, who popularized Irving Berlin’s song “God Bless America” and was a female pioneer in early television, recorded songs that today in hindsight are viewed as racist. An old friend, Harry Covert, writes to recall the early days of black-and-white TV when he (and I) watched Smith’s television program. Covert remembers one show interrupted by a news bulletin announcing the attempted assassination of Harry S. Truman by militant Puerto Rican activists. He notes that today’s Puerto Ricans...
