    Malcolm X was not pleased. The crowd was meager. Fannie Lou Hamer deserved better. She had stopped in Harlem to speak as his guest just months after her instrumental role in the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party's historic challenge to unseat Mississippi's all-White, all-male delegation to the 1964 Democratic National Convention.

    A stupid costume choice at a Halloween party two years ago is front-page news in the newspaper of record in the capital city of the Empire? What on earth? ... I read it first with bemusement at the moral panic, and then finally, with horror over what we are doing to ourselves.... Honestly, what kind of white idiot shows up in blackface these days? Granted, this was 2018, but blackface was extremely taboo then. That’s what Schafer’s joke was about: how Megyn Kelly got herself in a world of trouble by suggesting that blackface was not that big a deal....

    WICHITA, Kan. -- Donors are pushing Kansas' higher education board to fire Wichita State University's president after he canceled a virtual speech by Ivanka Trump for its technical school's graduation. The Kansas Board of Regents scheduled a special meeting Wednesday to discuss what it called “personnel matters.” Its staff did not say more, but the meeting comes only two days after a former board member from Wichita said the regents should ask for President Jay Golden's resignation. Golden canceled Trump's speech after students and faculty protested. Students staged an impromptu rally Wednesday to support him. Steve Clark, the former regent...

    Manx Radio took Stu Peters off air after Wednesday's programme in which a black caller challenged him for writing "all lives matter" in an online forum. "I've had no more privilege in my life than you have. I'm a white man, you're a black man," he told Jordan Maguire. Manx Radio said it had referred the issue to the Communications Commission. Mr Peters declined to comment when contacted by the BBC. Manx Radio's managing director Chris Sully said: "Stu Peters will not be presenting the Late Show whilst an investigation takes place.

    A professor from the University of Central Florida is under investigation after he claimed 'white Americans and white culture were under siege' while making several racist stereotypes about black people in the country. The announcement from UCF came just a day after the associate psychology professor, Charles Negy, took to Twitter to offer his comments surrounding the mythological 'black privilege.' He said in a Wednesday tweet: 'If African Americans as a group, had the same behavioral profile as Asian Americans (on average, performing the best academically, having the highest income, committing the lowest crime, etc.), would we still be proclaiming...

    Serena Williams' Reddit co-founder husband Alexis Ohanian has resigned from the company's board because he is a 'father who needs to be able to answer his black daughter when she asks: 'What did you do?'' The tech founder, who shares two-year-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr. with his tennis star wife, made the shock announcement in a video uploaded to his Instagram page around midday Friday. In the footage, he says he is stepping down 'for me, for my family, and for my country' so that his seat on the board can be filled by a black candidate and so...

    Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden will deliver remarks in Philadelphia on Tuesday addressing the protests across the country sparked by George Floyd’s death. Biden will speak in front of a pooled press on “the civil unrest facing communities across America” Tuesday morning, his campaign announced in a release Monday night. The former vice president had met with African American community leaders in Wilmington, Del., on Monday and said he would be making national speeches on the future and direction of the country. “I need help and advice as we go on as to what I should and shouldn’t be doing,”...

    As Israelis are notoriously loud, it is perhaps in their own interest to continue wearing masks to stop the spread of the virus and "lower the curve." Tiny particles escaping from a person's mouth when they speak loudly – which may contain the coronavirus – can stay in the air from eight up to as much as 14 minutes, a study has found. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

    By now you’ve probably heard about or even seen the video “Plandemic” that’s been spreading like wildfire through social media networks. This article is not the one you should give to your friend or relative or coworker who shared the video. This is an article for those who recognized the video as rife with conspiracy theories, misinformation and false claims, those who are frustrated and unsettled and disappointed in who they see sharing it, and those who want to know what to say when they see it. It explains why the video is successful, how to recognize propaganda like this...

    Retired federal judge Janice Rogers Brown warned Tuesday about the perils of the mob that views politics as all important and ignores objective truth. President Donald Trump has had to contend with a fired-up “resistance” of political opposition that will not recognize his presidency as legitimate, Brown suggested. “Prior to the 2016 election, America had a cherished tradition of peacefully transferring power. No riots in the streets. No military coups. George Washington himself set the standard,” Brown said. “However, we now know elections have consequences only when the correct candidate is elected.” Brown, who served on the U.S. Court of...

    I am one of the many women Mike Bloomberg’s company tried to silence through nondisclosure agreements. The funny thing is, I never even worked for Bloomberg. But my story shows the lengths that the Bloomberg machine will go to in order to avoid offending Beijing. Bloomberg’s company, Bloomberg LP, is so dependent on the vast China market for its business that its lawyers threatened to devastate my family financially if I didn’t sign an NDA silencing me about how Bloomberg News killed a story critical of Chinese Communist Party leaders. It was only when I hired Edward Snowden’s lawyers in...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her decision to rip up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address earlier this month, a dramatic move that was criticized by Republicans as being disrespectful and a "breach of decorum." "One of my disappointments is the fact that with all that we have done legislatively, whether its equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, gun violence protection, issues that relate to our children, the list goes on. I thought, well, let's get attention on the fact that what he said here today was not true," Pelosi told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in...

    Joker actor Joaquin Phoenix accepted the Best Actor award at the Oscars for his role in Joker in a rambling speech that referenced cow insemination and condemned cancel culture. Phoenix began his speech saying, “I’ve been thinking a lot about some of the distressing issues we are facing collectively and I think at times we feel or are made to feel that we champion different causes. But for me I see commonality.” He continued, “I think whether we are talking about gender inequality, or racism, or queer rights, or indigenous rights, or animal rights, we are talking about the fight...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The issue of misleading political messages on social media has arisen again, as President Donald Trump tweeted an edited video showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeatedly tearing up his State of the Union speech as he honored audience members and showed a military family reuniting.

    Following a series of sweeping actions to expand access to voting in recent years, a California lawmaker is pushing to require voters to cast a ballot in future elections. The proposal, introduced in the state Assembly on Tuesday, would be unprecedented and probably challenged in court should it ultimately become law. It would place the burden for determining the civil penalty and the ultimate punishment on the secretary of state, California’s chief elections officer.

    Rep. Matt Gaetz said he will be working to get an investigation going into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi because she tore up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address. “I will be filing charges against Nancy Pelosi in the House Ethics Committee,” the Florida Republican told Laura Ingraham on Fox News. “She disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country, and she destroyed official records." “The law does not allow the speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House, and the rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum just...
