Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall says QB Ben Roethlisberger is racist

Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall accused the team's current quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of being racist while supporting ex-teammate Antonio Brown on Twitter this week. On Thursday, Mendenhall, who played for the team between 2008 and 2012, took some time to defend wide receiver Antonio Brown, whose rift with the Steelers quickly became public and led to his eventual trade to the Oakland Raiders in March. In a series of posts, Mendenhall expressed sympathy for Brown, tweeting, "I know he seems outta pocket right now, but I seriously feel for [Brown]."

Teen Charged With Making Racist Threats In Charlottesville

(The Daily Progress via AP)

A 17-year-old boy was charged Friday with making online threats of “ethnic cleansing” against Black and Hispanic students at the public high school in Charlottesville, Virginia, a city that was the site of a deadly white nationalist rally in 2017.

The threats had shut down the city’s public schools on Thursday and Friday, drawing the community closer together but also sparking fear in a city that witnessed racial violence firsthand.

Aware that this college town has become synonymous with racial strife, city leaders used a news conference to speak out against racism and even rebuke past comments by President Donald Trump.

“We want the community and the world to know that hate is not welcomed in Charlottesville,” police Chief RaShall Brackney said. “Violence is not welcomed in Charlottesville. Intolerance is not welcomed in Charlottesville.”

She added: “And in Charlottesville and around the globe, we stand firmly in stating: There are not ‘very fine people’ on both sides of this issue.”

Brackney’s comment appeared to reference statements Trump made in the days after violence broke out in the city during the summer of 2017. A loosely connected mix of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists had assembled to protest the city’s decision to remove a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Heather Heyer, 32, was killed when a man plowed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters.

In the days afterward, Trump acknowledged there were “some very bad people” looking for trouble in the group protesting plans to remove the statue. “But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides,” he said.

Charlottesville police released few details about the teen who was arrested Friday because he was a juvenile. But they said he lives outside the city in Albemarle County and does not attend Charlottesville’s schools.

When asked about his race, police said the suspect identifies as Portuguese.

The teen faces a felony charge of threatening to commit serious bodily harm on school property. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of harassment by computer.

Chief Brackney said the student used “vile and racially charged language” on 4chan, a shadowy site known for, among other things, cruel hoaxes and political extremism.

She said detective work helped find the teen and that internet providers and law enforcement professionals “nationally, internationally” helped the department investigate.

Rosa Atkins, the superintendent of Charlottesville schools, said the threat provoked real fear and anxiety. School counselors and others are preparing for the students’ return Monday.

“Since August 2017, our community has made a good-faith effort to have these difficult conversations about race and equity, and build trust and relationships in our school system and in our community,” she said. “And this comment attempted, although it failed, to undermine our efforts, and our community.”

Papa John’s Picks Shaq as Pitchman After Founder’s Racist Controversy

(NEW YORK) — Papa John’s has a new pitchman: Shaquille O’Neal.

The chain says basketball Hall of Famer will appear on TV commercials and promoted Papa John’s in other ways. He will also join the company’s board of directors and invest in nine of its restaurants in the Atlanta area.

Papa John’s is trying to revive its image after the company’s founder and namesake, John Schnatter, was reported to have used a racial slur during a media training session. Schnatter, who was the face of the company, has apologized for the slur and the company scrubbed his face from the company’s logo and advertisements last year. Schnatter is still the Louisville, Kentucky-based company’s biggest shareholder.

Papa John’s International Inc. says it will pay O’Neal more than $ 8 million in cash and company stock for a three-year endorsement deal.

Wall Street seems to think it’s a winning partnership. Shares of Papa John’s soared more than 4 percent Friday.

‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain Defends Spike Lee After Trump’s ‘Racist Hit’

Meghan McCain admitted on Monday morning that she fell asleep during the Oscars.

“I fell asleep and I asked permission for me to say that on the air,” she said on The View, which like the Academy Awards airs on ABC, “because I don’t know what’s like socially acceptable.”  

Besides enjoying the opening number from Adam Lambert and Queen, there was one other moment that caught her attention. It happened to be one of the most political moments of the night when BlacKkKlansman director Spike Lee used his acceptance speech to call for change in 2020.

That Controversial Serena Williams Cartoon Wasn’t Racist, Australia’s Media Watchdog Says

(SYDNEY) — A media watchdog has ruled that a cartoon of tennis star Serena Williams, which attracted global condemnation after being published by Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper, was not in breach of the Australian Press Council’s standards of practice.

The depiction of Williams by cartoonist Mark Knight last September showed her reacting angrily to her loss to Naomi Osaka in the final of the U.S. Open. Williams is depicted with her mouth open wide, hands in fists and jumping above a broken tennis racket and a baby’s pacifier. In the background an umpire says to a player on the opposite side of the net, “Can you just let her win?”

Critics condemned the cartoon as racist and sexist.

In a ruling published Monday, the Australian Press Council said it “acknowledged that some readers found the cartoon offensive” but said there was sufficient public interest in commenting on the behavior of a player with a globally high profile.

“The council considered that the cartoon uses exaggeration and absurdity to make its point but accepts the publisher’s claim that it does not depict Ms Williams as an ape, rather showing her as ‘spitting the dummy’, a non-racist caricature familiar to most Australian readers.”

Spitting the dummy is an Australian term for a tantrum.

The Herald Sun said the cartoon used “satire, caricature, exaggeration, and humor” to depict an event of public interest.

Report: Jussie Smollett Staged Attack After Racist Letter Didn’t Get ‘Bigger Reaction’

Richard Shotwell/AP

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett reportedly staged an attack against himself in late January after a “racist” letter sent to the TV show’s studio, which contained a white powder, did not get a “bigger reaction,” according to a local Chicago news station.

A source told CBS Chicago the actor allegedly “concocted” the “staged” Jan. 29 attack and paid his “acquaintances”—brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo—over $ 3,000 to carry it out.

Smollett reportedly opened the letter on Jan. 22 at Chicago’s Cinespace Studios, and the white powder prompted a HAZMAT team to respond. Chicago Police Department told the news station that the substance turned out to be asprin. Cinespace Studios would not comment to The Daily Beast about the incident. Fox, “Empire’s” network, also declined to provide comment or confirmation.

Democrats Are Urging Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to Resign Over Racist Photo

Democrats are calling for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to resign even though he has said he will not after a racist photo from his 1984 medical school yearbook resurfaced, causing national outrage.

The Democratic governor denied being in the photograph, which showed a person in blackface and another in a Ku Klux Klan robe. However, he later admitted to wearing blackface during a Michael Jackson dance contest that same year.

Congressional Black Caucus leaders are among those making calls for the governor to step down. California Rep. Karen Bass, chairwoman of the CBC, and Virginia Democratic Rep. Donald McEachin appeared on Meet The Press Sunday morning. McEachin said Northam had “lost the authority to lead, he’s lost the authority to govern.”

Bass also criticized Northam for “forcing the wrong conversation.” She added, “What he should do is resign, and if he has any integrity at all, he should participate in that conversation.”

The remarks follow those made by other Democrats, such as those from the Democratic Governor’s Association, which issued a public statement on the matter. DGA Chair Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo and Vice Chair New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, urged Northam to resign, calling the yearbook photo “racist and inexcusable.”

Prominent Virginia legislators have also made public calls for Northam’s resignation, including the former Gov. Douglas Wilder, who became the first black governor since the Reconstruction era in 1990. Wilder wrote on Twitter that Northam has no other choice “but to resign.”

Virginia Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner and Virginia Rep. Bobby Scott all urged Northam to resign, writing in a statement: “Governor Northam has served the people of the Commonwealth faithfully for many years, but the events of the past 24 hours have inflicted immense pain and irrevocably broken the trust Virginians must have in their leaders. He should step down and allow the Commonwealth to begin healing.”

The state’s Democratic Party echoed these calls, as did the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, who said in a statement that the “revelations” had caused “irreparable” damage, adding that their confidence in the governor had been “eviscerated.”

Former Attorney General Eric Holder, who is considering the 2020 presidential race, said on Twitter that he no longer believes Northam has “the ability to effectively govern and effectively stand for the issues – moral and political – that Virginia and the nation must confront.”

Other 2020 presidential prospects made the same demand, including California Sen. Kamala Harris, who wrote on Twitter that the governor “should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.”

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted a call for Northam to resign, and said, “Hatred and discrimination have no place in our country and must not be tolerated.” New York Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard all also urged Northam to step down.

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Juli?n Castro, another 2020 hopeful; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; and Hillary Clinton all weighed in on Twitter.

Ocasio-Cortez called the photo “painful” adding that while Northam should resign, “those who try to help him stumble past this deserve scrutiny.”

Trevor Noah Calls Out Kirsten Gillibrand for Past ‘Racist’ Policies

Comedy Central

This past weekend, during Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s first big Sunday show interview since she announced she is running for president in 2020, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked her a fairly straightforward question: “If Trump’s immigration positions are racist, were they racist when you held some of those positions as well?”

After a pause, she told Tapper, “They certainly weren’t empathetic, and they weren’t kind, and I did not think about suffering in other people’s lives.” Sen. Gillibrand explained that she only discovered how “wrong” she was about the issue after visiting Brooklyn and learning from Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez.

“Damn, Jake Tapper got her on that one,” Trevor Noah said Tuesday night during a Daily Show segment about the various apologies that have launched the early Democratic presidential campaigns this month. “It’s hard for her to say Trump’s policies are racist, but her identical policies were just unkind.”

‘Daily Show’s’ Trevor Noah Offers Definitive Proof That Steve King Is a ‘Racist’

Comedy Central

This Tuesday, as even Republicans in Congress were denouncing their colleague Steve King’s comments about white supremacy, an NBC News memo leaked instructing reporters to “avoid characterizing [King’s] remarks as racist.” The media organization eventually had to backtrack and admit, “It is fair to characterize King’s comments as ‘racist,’ and point out that he has a history of racist comments.”

“This is a big deal,” The Daily Show host Trevor Noah said Tuesday night. “The Republican Party has punished one of its own for making racist comments.” And while King’s declaration that there’s nothing “offensive” about being a white supremacist “feels like a pretty racist thing to say,” Noah noted that the congressman is fighting back, claiming that his words were somehow taken out of context.

“I want to make one thing abundantly clear,” King said on the floor of the House this week. “I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define.”

With Fox News host Tucker Carlson under fire and losing advertisers after accusing immigrants of making America “poorer and dirtier and more divided” last week, Colbert sat down behind his desk for an old-school takedown. “Carlson’s already got a reputation for flirting with racism, but last week, he took it to a racy new level,” the host began.

After playing a brief clip of Carlson’s comments, the host said, “Now, if just listening to him say that makes you feel dirty and more divided, you’re not alone. Tucker got a lot of heat for those remarks, but he’s nothing if not the little racist who could. And he came chuggin’ back up that hill on Monday with a new reason he doesn’t like immigrants: He just cares so darn much about the environment.”

Racist Who Cyber-Terrorized Black Student Gets Light Penalty

Sitting down with a therapist for “anti-hate training” was part of the gift-wrapped slap on the wrist that a racist internet troll was given for terrorizing a Black college student through a neo-Nazi website.

 

Evan James McCarty settled a lawsuit on Tuesday that Taylor Dumpson filed over an internet campaign to racially harass her after she became the first Black woman to serve as American University’s student government president in 2017, the Associated Press reported.

The agreement also required McCarty to apologize, do community service and publicly renounce white supremacy.

That’ll teach him, right?

“At the end of the day, our settlement should send a strong message to white supremacists and neo-Nazis all across the country that they will be held accountable for their conduct,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, which represented Dumpson.

Dumpson’s nightmare began when someone hung bananas marked with the letters “AKA,” a reference to the historically Black college sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha, from nooses on the university’s campus. The school’s president noted in a statement that the incident occurred after Dumpson, an AKA member, was sworn in as American’s student government president.

The Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin, who was also a defendant in the lawsuit, directed his readers to cyberbully Dumpson, the lawsuit alleged. In an article he posted about the incident, Anglin added links to Dumpson’s Facebook page and the American University Student Government’s Twitter page.

In at least one instance, McCarty took to Twitter and posted a picture of bananas with the caption, “Ready the troops,” replying to a message that revealed Dumpson’s whereabouts. He posted that and other tweets anonymously under the pseudonym Byron de la Vandal, which Dumpson’s legal team believed was a reference to Byron De La Beckwith, the Klansman who killed civil rights leader Medgar Evers in 1963.

It’s hard to see how therapy sessions could bring about a real change in a committed white supremacist. How is a transformation possible when programs to make people—who are not ardent racists—aware of their unconscious racism seldom work?

American companies spend an estimated $ 8 billion a year on anti-bias training, according to TIME. Yet there’s clear evidence that the efforts to change bias attitudes, which are often ingrained from childhood, is no easy task. A study of 829 companies over 31 years found that diversity training had “no positive effects in the average workplace,” especially when it’s mandatory.

Dumpson said she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder over her ordeal. The 22-year-old law school student believes the settlement “could raise awareness of issues of racial justice, while also providing for educational benefits.”

Criticized for Charms That Evoke Blackface, Prada Says It ‘Abhors Racist Imagery’

Facing online accusations that animal-like figurines and charms in its stores and windows evoke blackface, Prada Group issued a statement saying it “abhors racist imagery” and vowed to withdraw them from “display and circulation.”
In a Facebook post, Chinyere Ezie, a civil rights lawyer, said the sight of the figurines in the Italian brand’s store in New York’s SoHo district had her “shaking with anger,” describing “racist and denigrating #blackface imagery” and “Sambo like imagery.”

Ezie noted she had just returned from a visit to the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, taking in an exhibit on blackface.
“History cannot continue to repeat itself. Black America deserves better. And we demand better,” she wrote in her post, which got picked up by other blogs. “Shame on you Prada.”

In a statement to WWD, Prada said the figures are “fantasy charms composed of elements of the Prada oeuvre” and known as Pradamalia.
“They are imaginary creatures not intended to have any reference to the real world and certainly not blackface. Prada Group never had the intention of offending anyone and we abhor all forms of racism and racist imagery. In this interest we will withdraw the characters in question from display and circulation,” it

NBC ‘Today’ Hosts Condemn Megyn Kelly’s ‘Ignorant, Racist’ Comments

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

If Megyn Kelly thought an apology to staff over her “blackface” comments was going to be adequate, she was proved bitingly wrong on the very show she presents the third hour of on Wednesday morning.

Host Al Roker said: “She owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country,” while news anchor Craig Melvin said Kelly’s comments were “ignorant and racist… stupid and indefensible.”

Kelly didn’t appear in person to answer her colleagues’ criticism, but may speak about the controversy at 9am on her own show.
