Brayla Stone, Black Trans Teen, Killed in Apparent Hit
Local police in Arkansas are treating the death of a 17-year-old transgender Black woman as a homicide. The body of Brayla Stone was found in a car on a walking path in the Little Rock suburb of Sherwood last Thursday, and a person on social media later claimed he was paid five thousand dollars to kill her. Stone is the eighth trans person violently killed in the last seven days.
“Brayla Stone is the 8th transgender person killed in the last seven days,” David Johns, Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition, said in a statement. “Brayla Stone was seventeen years young when someone murdered her because we live in a society where it is not yet explicit that when we say BlackLivesMatter we mean all Black lives, which includes Black trans women and girls.”

Resurfaced clip shows Jimmy Kimmel laughing as Megan Fox talks about Michael Bay sexualizing her when she was 15
"I'm taking this summer off to spend even more time with my family," Kimmel said. "There's nothing wrong. I'm healthy, my family's healthy, I just need a couple of months off."
Many wondered if Kimmel was taking time off to allow the heat die down over resurfaced video clips of him in blackface doing an exaggerated impersonation of former Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone, especially since this has been the summer of canceling people.
On the heels of Kimmel's blackface controversy, another old clip has emerged that shows the progressive TV host in a very negative light.

Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King says statues of Jesus Christ should be torn down — but just the white ones
Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King said that it is permissible to tear down the statues of Jesus Christ that show him with European features because they support white supremacy.
"Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been," King tweeted on Monday.
"In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down," he added.
"Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down," he explained in a second tweet.

“Papa, I’m sorry as I could not be a good son,” the suicide note, seen by the National Indian Herald, said.

Why China’s hip-hop stars are staying silent on Black Lives Matter
After a 2017 rap show got a generation of China’s youth hooked on hip hop, the musical genre has created dozens of Chinese stars and, along with them, billions of streaming views.
But despite their enthusiasm for a culture that originated in the African-American community, Chinese hip-hop stars and their legions of fans have largely stayed silent on the Black Lives Matter movement, which has swept across the world after the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis.
Sun Bayi, a Beijing-based rapper, said he was not in a position to comment on the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I know racism in theory, but it’s hard to empathise with it,” said the rapper, whose favourite artists are Eminem and the Notorious B.I.G. “I’m not black. I have never lived in America. What can I say about it?”
