Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s claim that company deleted event calling for violence before shooting untrue: Report

Contrary to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s claims, it wasn’t the company’s content moderation team that took down the event listing of a group that had called for violence in the US, but it was the group’s admin who did so, reported Buzzfeed News on Thursday. The report refutes claims made by Facebook just days after a fatal shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin when the company was facing a PR nightmare for reportedly failing to act on time and delete hate speech against Black Lives Matter protestors....

GOPers Keep Falsely Implying A Protester Killed A Federal Officer In Oakland

Trump administration officials and Republicans in Congress have for weeks played a rhetorical shell game with the American public.  The Black Lives Matter protests that have rocked the country for months, they’ve implied, are deadly: Just look at the federal officer who was murdered during a Black Lives Matter Protest on May 29. But the murder of Federal Protective Service Officer Dave Patrick Underwood, who was 53 when he was killed in a drive-by shooting, was not committed by a violent...

WNBPA President Nneka Ogwumike said she wasn’t entirely sure the 24th WNBA season would actually happen until she boarded the flight for IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. But after the start of the season was delayed more than two months on account of the coronavirus pandemic, she and her colleagues on the Sparks and in the WNBA have made it.

Authenticity and Communication During Civil Unrest: Lessons Learned from Ben & Jerry’s

The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis reignited the Black Lives Matter movement in a way that is not only recognized nationally, but has transcended to an international level. The movement has forced many to wake up and recognize the long-time injustices that have been set against Black people in America. Despite the pandemic, advocates and activists took to the streets to protest for justice against America’s biggest plague: racism. According to the Washington Post, protests around these inj...

Law Professor Skillfully Handles a “Black Lives Matter” Complaint From Her Students

For the curious and open-minded, many explanations of what “Black Lives Matter” means and what it doesn’t (e.g. White lives don’t matter) are readily available online. But in terms of pure clarity, it’s hard to beat what Whittier Law School professor Patricia Leary wrote in response to a letter sent to her by an anonymous group of students in 2016. This group of students was offended by Leary wearing a “Black Lives Matter” t-shirt on campus, writing in part: We write this letter to you with c...

Invention of a Slave and the Ongoing Movement For Equal Justice

by Dennis Crouch The Black Lives Matter movement, ongoing protests, and statements of alliance have given me new hope that our society and its institutions are ready to take another step toward equal justice. In 1857, the US Supreme Court decided Dred Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. (19 How.) 393 (1857) and affirmed what various state courts had previously decided — that under the law, free (non-enslaved) black and brown people were not United States Citizens.

Gramercy Tavern chef talks support

In the first week of June, when Black Lives Matter protesters flooded the streets with their grief and anger, megaphones pointed at the sky demanding that their country finally treat them with humanity and compassion, a much quieter movement swept social media. On Instagram, lists of Black-owned restaurants went viral. Non-Black and white restaurant owners expressed support for the protests, and promised “solidarity” with the Black Lives Matter movement in so-called blackout posts. While the...

The Perfect T-Shirts To Get Pulled Over In

Our first amendment right protects us to wear t-shirts that say whatever we want. To the founders of the United States, it was that important; numero uno, the freedom of speech. The freedom to say what we want doesn’t mean we should always say what we think, especially during sensitive moments like getting pulled over. Even for a routine traffic check, police officers know that the situation can escalate. They’re using any and everything to predict behavior, including what your t-shirt says. Wea...

With Eyes Wide Open America Needs Self-Awareness

A hundred and fifty years after the Civil War ended, an admirer of white supremacists has been elected President of the United Staes. Not coincidentally, Donald Trump's ascendancy comes at a moment when the eyes of many white America were already being opened in ways they haven't since the 1960's. The Black Lives Matter movement and the ubiquity of cell phone video have made it much more difficult for white people to ignore the frequency with which the state engages its black citizens in racist...

Black Lives Matter, The Brand

Black Lives Matter is one of the most widespread social justice movements of this decade—and it has galvanized its followers with a powerful visual identity and branding. Yet, since Black Lives Matter is a movement and not a brand, there’s no obvious way to control how its symbols are used, or by whom. The Black Lives Matter logo and hashtag have been appropriated by outside interests, ranging from corporations to ideologically opposed protest groups like All Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter. ...

What’s the Matter with All Lives Matter

By Khalil Abdur-Rashid When former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani stated on Fox News that Black Lives Matter is inherently racist, and a local Dallas mosque publicly advertised All Lives Matter on the billboard outside of the mosque, and the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump expressed his support for the All Lives Matter agenda, then it became necessary to clarify just exactly what is the matter with All Lives Matter. Race relations in this country is in serious need of a...

To Be Young Immigrant and Black

One of the factors that help bring crimes to justice is the time in which the investigators get a lead. Race and ethnicity are also significant factors in whether or not a victim receives justice. Four days had passed before Max Fisher published an article in Vox that drew attention to the story of three young, Black Muslim men who were shot, execution style, and killed in Fort Wayne, Indiana. But with questions still unanswered four days later, American Muslims rose up on social media to demand...
