Gay man films landlady demanding he move because of visiting ‘homosexuals’
A gay man in Florida recorded his landlady demanding he move out of her apartment. He says she turned unwelcoming after learning about his sexuality. The relationship broke down just days after he moved in.
Randal Coffman, 22, moved into the home of Jackie Cooper in Middleburg, Clay County, Florida. Cooper rents out a small apartment on the back of her property which has a separate entrance.
Coffman moved in 1 December. He says two weeks later Cooper demanded he move out. He believes his landlady had a change of heart when she discovered he’s gay.
His landlady told him he wasn’t allowed to bring girls back to the property late at night. That’s when he informed her that wouldn’t be happening as he’s gay.

Justine Skye: I Didn't Name My Abuser Because Rap Culture Doesn't Care
Singer Justine Skye's harrowing new music video opens with a disclaimer that it's "based on true events." The video for "Build" is a poignant yet painful look a young woman's relationship with a man who physically and mentally abused her, and ends with a black screen and the italicized words: "United in the fight against domestic violence."
In a Monday interview with The Breakfast Club, Skye explains why she elected to keep her alleged abuser’s identity private, though fans and sleuths have taken a look at her social media activity and speculate that "Build" is about rapper Check Wes, who recently appeared on Saturday Night Live.

Police in Toronto are seeking information on multiple incidents of alleged sexual and physical assaults at a private all-boys Catholic school after videos of two of the alleged assaults surfaced on social media earlier this week.

The call for action against the "Forces of Organized Perversion" landed in the inboxes of conservative Roman Catholics across the country just before Election Day.
“Have you had enough?” activist Randy Engel wrote in a column that first appeared on the conservative website RenewAmerica.com. “Or will you wait until the Homosexual Collective’s hobnail boot is pressed on the neck of your prone body or that of your child or grandchild before reacting?”
“Cast your vote for God, family, and nation,” she wrote.

City Girls Rapper Yung Miami Explains Saying She Would 'Beat' Her Son If He Was Gay: Watch
Rapper Yung Miami, of the rap group City Girls, has made a name for herself as a controversial figure in the hip-hop world. The 24-year-old rapper made comments in 2011 about how she thought Haitians were “black ugly and cheesy” and said in 2013 that she wouldn’t want one of her sons to be gay -- both of which she later publicly apologized for.
But Miami found herself in more hot water on Tuesday (Nov. 13) after her appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, where she doubled down on her homophobic statements. Speaking with host Charlamagne Tha God, Miami was asked about her controversial tweet that said what she would do if she had a gay son. “I didn’t tweet nothing about them [the LGBTQ community],” she said. “I was just talking about my son. I just said that if I saw anything gay in my son, that I would beat him.”

Why racist politics appeals to white women, explained by American history
“What is wrong with white women?” Moira Donegan asked at the Guardian after last week’s midterm elections.
“Why do half of them so consistently vote for Republicans, even as the Republican party morphs into a monstrously ugly organization that is increasingly indistinguishable from a hate group?”
Questions about white women’s allegiances came to the fore again this week, when news broke that a white woman senator facing a runoff in Mississippi had made a joke on the campaign trail about attending a “public hanging.”
Progressives sometimes expect white women, as a group, to support the interests of people of color of all genders — after all, women know what discrimination feels like.
“Most of us continue to see white women through the lens of gender,” explained Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers, a history professor at UC Berkeley and the author of the forthcoming book They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South. “This allows for us to be optimistic about the possibility that their gendered oppression will allow for them to find common cause with other dispossessed groups.”
But that common cause has been elusive.
Wisconsin high school students appear to make Nazi salute in prom photo
A Wisconsin school district is investigating a photo showing a group of high school boys apparently making the Nazi salute. A school official denounced the image on Twitter — and said it would pursue legal actions if necessary.
Baraboo Superintendent Dr. Lori Mueller said she became aware of the photo, which shows over 60 male students dressed in suits with their right arms extended upward, on Monday after it was posted on social media and received immediate backlash.

TRUMP LAWYER RUDY GIULIANI TAKES MYSTERY TRIPS TO RUSSIA, ARMENIA AND UKRAINE: REPORT
Giuliani had defended his business relationships, claiming that he had "friends all over the world."
"This is not a new thing for me," he told the Times. "When you become the mayor, you become interested in foreign policy. When I left, my major work was legal and security around the world."
During his trip to Armenia, Giuliani tweeted messages of support for Trump, claiming that "people here in Armenia think President Trump has once again restored America's leadership position."
"Many ARMENIANS want me to tell Americans that they love President Trump's dedication to making America Great Again," Giuliani said. "This will lead the world to peace and respect for human achievement and freedom."
The facts about Republicans’ hysteria over brown people
President Donald Trump tweeted a new ad that is almost too racist to believe on Wednesday.
The ad from Trump’s campaign, which accuses Democrats of allowing Mexicans and Central Americans to murder Americans, is the latest escalation in Republicans’ very obvious attempts to stoke fear about brown people and distract from unpopular conservative policies. The president’s party is widely expected to lose control of one chamber of Congress in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
While smearing immigrants is a time-honored tradition for many on the right, the president’s efforts to make a major campaign issue out of a migrant caravan traveling north from Central America (and currently 1,000 miles away from the U.S. border) has been echoed by prominent Republicans, Fox News, and numerous other propagandists in conservative media.
But don’t just take our word for it. Let’s dig into the data to show why Republicans’ recent cherry-picking has no basis in reality.

Rightwing fake news site run by a gay man implicated in conspiracy to derail Mueller investigation
Gateway Pundit, the far-right fake news website founded and run by a gay man, Jim Hoft, has walked back accusations made against special counsel Robert Mueller after the FBI opened an investigation of those accusations. Hoft is frequently called “the dumbest man on the internet” for his wild conspiracy theories and constant mistakes.
Yesterday, the website ran a post under this headline: “**EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS** : Special Counsel and Former FBI Director Robert Mueller Accused of Rape By ‘Very Credible Witness ‘ —MUCH MORE TO COME #BelieveAllWomen.”
The Empty Hope of the Suburban White Woman Voter
Relying on white suburban women using the midterms as a referendum on Republican excess is a loser’s bet. This seems obvious to anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election (or the last six decades of electoral history), but it’s also what comes across in this Politico piece delving into a contentious house race in North Carolina where a young, moderate Democrat by the name of Dan McCready is up against a bible-thumping Trumpite, Republican Mark Harris.
Reporter Michael Kruse went to the state’s ninth district—which stretches east to west from Charlotte to Fayetteville—in search of the much discussed and supposedly politically consequential suburban white woman, a voting bloc that pundits, talking heads, and strategists have argued can make or break the outcome of certain elections this time around.
THE U.S. CATHOLIC CHURCH IS FACING AN UNPRECEDENTED WAVE OF SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATIONS
In the months since a Pennsylvania grand jury announced the names of more than 300 priests who’d abused at least 1,000 children, authorities across the United States have launched investigations of unprecedented scale into sex abuse within the U.S. Catholic Church.
On Wednesday, Virginia became at least the 15th state where officials have announced a plan to investigate sex abuse allegations within the Church. At the federal level, the Justice Department has subpoenaed records from at least seven of Pennsylvania’s eight Catholic dioceses, the Associated Press reported last week, in a probe believed to be the first of its kind, according to the Survivors Network of those Abuse by Priests (SNAP).
