    What will the cost be for a vile act of bigotry? Airbnb’s November 19th decision to delist some 200 accounts of Jewish citizens who reside in the districts of Judea & Samaria, alternatively known as the West Bank, will have little economic impact on those account holders. Most of their business is generated by other advertising and hosting platforms so nothing will change. The tourists will still come. Moreover, Airbnb specifically excluded rentals from East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights from its delisting efforts. Nevertheless, despite its miniscule economic impact, it is crucial that supporters of Israel and opponents of...

    Companies say contributions made before lynching comments became public; law makes that unlikely Half a dozen corporations have asked Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith to reimburse their contributions to her runoff campaign. The companies have been under intense scrutiny in recent days for their financial support of the senator in the wake of her remark that she would be “on the front row” of a “public hanging” at a campaign stop earlier this month. The NAACP has said her comments evoke Mississippi’s bloody history of lynchings. The video has drawn new attention to her runoff race against Democratic challenger and former U.S....

    Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith smilingly posed for a photo in 2014 while wearing a Confederate cap and holding a rifle, then put the image on her Facebook page with the words "Mississippi history at its best!" That image, taken at a Mississippi museum, resurfaced Tuesday as AT&T, Leidos and Walmart joined two other companies, Union Pacific and Boston Scientific, in asking Hyde-Smith, a Republican, to return campaign contributions because of controversy over her recent jest about being willing to attend a public "hanging."

    Shortly after moving back onto campus in August, Emily Scheck saw that she had several text messages from her mom. The sophomore, a cross-country runner for Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, looked down in horror. She was getting disavowed by her mother for being a lesbian. Her mother had found photos on social media of Scheck with the woman she is dating and was apoplectic. Scheck had not come out to her parents, as she feared they wouldn't accept her sexual preference, according to the Griffin, the Canisius student newspaper. As first reported by the LGBT sports website Outsports,...

    An ex-Marine veteran was banned from Walt Disney World and all its parks after waving a "Trump 2020" banner while riding Splash Mountain. Interestingly enough, Disney apparently thought he was such a threat that they used 40 employees to escort out the 49-year-old veteran. “I held up the sign for two seconds so I can take a picture,” Dion Cini told the New York Post. “You’re allowed to hold up signs on Disney rides — cameras, cellphones, and other stuff like that. People have been doing it for years. They just kicked me out ’cause of the context of the...

    On Thursday night, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid were just some of the models who walked the catwalk in their lingerie for the 2018 Victoria's Secret show. While Victoria's Secret has previously praised themselves for championing diversity by including models of different ethnicities. The brand has faced heavy criticism for their frankly archaic view, when it comes to both plus-size and transgender models. In a time when the likes of Tess Holliday and Ashley Graham have graced the covers of Cosmopolitan and Vogue. And Giuliana Farfalla and Valentina Sampaio made history with their Playboy and Vogue covers, you...

    Motel 6 will pay up to $7.6 million to Hispanic guests to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit claiming that it violated their privacy by regularly providing guest lists to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) filed the lawsuit after the Phoenix New Times said ICE agents had arrested 20 people over six months at Motel 6s in Arizona, using guest lists to target people by national origin. “Motel 6 fully recognizes the seriousness of the situation and accepts full responsibility for both compensating those who were harmed and taking the...

    Wide-ranging Chinese state rules on what video games can depict are believed to be behind the need to modify Rainbow Six. The revamp would mean Rainbow Six had a "single, global version" so it would be easier to maintain and introduce new features, said Ubisoft. It illustrated its blogpost with images showing what some scenes and icons would look like in the new version. The illustrations depict skulls and knives being swapped for more anodyne images and some elements, such as slot machines, being removed entirely. The modified images and maps will be introduced with the Year 3, Season 4...

    Stacey Abrams emerged from her SUV on a busy Midtown Atlanta street corner on Sunday with a declaration to make to the throngs of voters attending the Atlanta Pride Parade, the annual celebration of LGBT rights in the heart of the city. “We’re here because we stand together, because we know that allies do not run from fights. And because we know we all have pride in Georgia,” she told cheering supporters, adding: “We stand with you and not against you.” Shortly after, she became the first major-party nominee for governor to march in the parade, a vibrant spectacle that...

    Pepsi's slogan may have once been "The Choice of a New Generation," but one grocery store owner has chosen to no longer sell its products because they feature the NFL logo. A Facebook post from S&Z Grocery in Athens, Alabama, stated the store would not sell the products until the logo is removed. “This may cause me to lose some business, but here goes. S&Z supermarket currently will not be selling 20 ounce Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. These two items are currently produced with the NFL logo on them. I refuse to sell the product until the logo is removed....

    Does big tech have a political bias problem? Companies like Facebook and Google have sworn up and down that they’re apolitical … but a growing amount of evidence is raising hard questions about the corporate culture within these brands. On Saturday, one of Google’s top people single-handedly brought those questions to the surface again. After Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as the next Supreme Court justice, the tech company’s design lead went on a hateful rant on Twitter. “You are finished, @GOP,” posted Dave Hogue, whose bio states that he holds a design lead position at Google. “You polished the final...
