racism

Milo Yiannopoulos is a British journalist for Breitbart. He's known for his trolling tweets and for sending his followers after people he fights with on Twitter. This time, he's gone too far and gotten himself permanently banned from Twitter after sending followers after Leslie Jones.

Let's be clear, he tried to explain it, but that doesn't make it not a really, really dumb idea. This YouTube star is getting a lot of flack for his "social experiment" video that involved, according to him, comparing "radical Islamic terrorism" and "radical Christian terrorism". What does that mean, you ask? Apparently it involves having your friend dress up in a real crappy costume and half-heartedly yelling mispronounced Arabic phrases at people before running away. 

Just... just watch it for yourself:



Obviously, most people HATED it. People in the comments of the original video and on Twitter called him out for his terrible judgment.

The volunteer in this video said some shocking things while screaming and pushing a family out of the hospital waiting room.  Isaiah Baskins, the man behind the camera, posted the video on Youtube and says that she made racist comments just before he started recording. 

You can also see an interview from the family who was behind the camera and the apology issued from the hospital in this video :

A London man ended up in big trouble after posting several awful Tweets about Muslims following the Brussels Attacks. His initial Tweet, where he describes "confronting" a Muslim woman was met with an appropriate amount of derision from other users who turned his phrase into a meme.

He clarified the incident with "The Telegraph" with an alternate version of events:

What everyone’s got wrong about this is I didn’t confront the woman,” he said. “I just said: ‘Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'”

“She was white, and British, wearing a hijab – and she told me it was nothing to do with her.

“I said ‘thank you for explaining that’ – and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways.”

Despite this alternate version of events, his Twitter stream has devolved into alternately spouting hateful things aimed at Muslims and retweeting stories about his "confrontation" Tweet.

But the story doesn't end there, he was arrested later for his hateful posts. The Telegraph gives details from a police spokesperson on the situation:

"A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue."

Floyd Mayweather seems adamant, hopelessly lenient towards stirring up the pot, and pissing off the competition, but outside the octagon. Mayweather recently implied Conor McGregor's popularity was more a result of his skin color than anything else:

"And what's so crazy, I don't really know the McGregor guy; never seen him fight. … They say he talk a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased! Like I said before, all I'm saying is this, I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Not chill Mayweather, not chill at all.

McGregor shut this little spell down by releasing a statement that was all at once, articulate, methodical, and appropriate. Here's an excerpt off McGregor's lengthy, well-rounded Instagram response:

Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.

In my family's long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name 'McGregor' was punishable by death. Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again. If you want we can organise a fight no problem. I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.

At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game. The game answers to me now.

Suffice to say, we'd pay a whole lotta' dough to see these two exchange blows sometime soon.

Who do you think would take home the W?

Melissa Harris Perry has a lot of feelings about Star Wars, primarily that it's racist, because Darth Vader was voiced by a black guy but played by a white guy.

The part where he was totally a black guy whose name was basically James Earl Jones...but while he was black he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men's hands, and didn't, you know, actually claim his son, but as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good he takes off his mask and he's white.


Maybe she doesn't acknowledge the prequels as being real, and who can blame her for that, but Anakin/Vader is a white guy in those and he kills so many younglings. He also first "claims his son" while he's still "a black guy" (a whole movie before he takes off his mask) and, well, if you've ever heard Darth Vader's on-set voice, you'd understand why they dubbed over it with James Earl Jones:
