    In a video from a plane that’s circulating on social media, a black woman in an aisle is lecturing a flight attendant, and another passenger at one point, about how White Privilege is “over” in 2020 and therefore that’s why the flight attendant who is employed by the airline and responsible for passengers has no right to tell her to move. The black woman then accuses the flight attendant of exercising her “white privilege” while still blocking her way. “I need to get to my door,” repeats the flight attendant as the black woman continues to bicker. “You have white...

    Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey declared in an episode of her eponymous series, The Oprah Conversation that “whiteness” and “white privilege” afford unspecified benefits to white people in the “caste system” of America. In an episode entitled “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” — featuring former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho and drawing its name from Acho’s YouTube series of the same name — Oprah Winfrey invited several white people to discuss “racism,” “white privilege,” and “whiteness.” Oprah praised her white guests for accusing themselves of being “racist.”

    Washington, D.C. attendees to the Atlanta funeral of the late Rep. John Lewis are exempt from following the District of Columbia's strict quarantine rules after returning home from Georgia, the D.C. mayor's office says. Lewis, a longtime member of Congress and one of the major figures of the American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, died on July 17 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. After lying in state at the United States Capitol, his body was returned to Atlanta for a funeral at that city's historic Ebenezer Baptist Church.

    Here is the breakdown of acting nominations at the BL-MMY'S Percentage: White actors: 60.7% (68 of 112) Black: 35.7% (40 of 112) Other: 3.6 (4 or 112) There was only ONE hispanic/latino actor nominated. Rain Valdez for a short form comedy series. The remaining nonwhite actors were Sandra Oh, Ramy Youssef, and Dev Patel. Hollywood said they wanted to accurately represent America. But it turns out Hollywood is racist to anyone not black including Latinos, Asians, Middle Eastern and Indian actors. How woke! How progressive!

    NEW YORK (AP) — After changing its usage rules last month to capitalize the word “Black” when used in the context of race and culture, The Associated Press on Monday said it would not do the same for “white.” The AP said white people in general have much less shared history and culture, and don’t have the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color. “We agree that white people’s skin color plays into systemic inequalities and injustices, and we want our journalism to robustly explore these problems,” John Daniszewski, the AP’s vice president for standards, said in a...

    A group of peaceful protestors took over a small section of uninhabited public land in the Pacific Northwest. They were conscientious objectors to federal policies they claimed were unconstitutional and discriminatory. No one was hurt and no weapons were preemptively drawn. Law enforcement asked their leaders to a parley to bring about a peaceful resolution, and they quickly agreed. While on the way to that meeting, they were subsequently ambushed and bullets riddled their vehicle. With his arms wide in the air, one of the leaders was ruthlessly gunned down as a helicopter looked from above. Another group of protestors,...

The ceremony began with attorney Benjamin Crump calling some of Floyd’s family members to the front of the room to deliver remarks. They recounted their childhood, growing up with Floyd, who they said close friends and family members called Perry. Crump said the fight for justice for Floyd was also part of a greater fight to...

The service unfolded at the Lindquist Sanctuary at the North Central University as a judge less than a mile away set bail at $750,000 each for three...
