There’s a Divide in Even the Closest Interracial Friendships Including ours.
It was one of those perfect California nights, not too cold or too hot. Ann’s backyard was strung with lights and punctuated with the cheerful buzz of conversation as people milled around with glasses of rosé in hand. She had offered up her patio as the venue for a friend’s birthday party. And—even better—Aminatou happened to be in town. She was in Los Angeles for a work trip and had been looking forward to attending the backyard soiree because she knew and liked the birthday girl and many of the other guests.
When she showed up, the party was already in full swing. Aminatou found that the snacks were delicious and the mood lovely. But what should have been a fun night celebrating and catching up with friends turned sour when Aminatou noticed that she was the only Black person milling around Ann’s back patio.

Man kicked out of sick parents’ house after partying on Fire Island amid COVID-19
Giancarlo Albanese, the unapologetic man who flocked to Fire Island Pines last weekend — and posted a photo of a large, maskless all-male rave he attended with the caption “Fuck your mask … Fuck your vaccine” — has reportedly been booted from his parents’ house over his failure to keep it socially distant.
Queerty reports that a man who claims to be Albanese’s brother responded to that Instagram upload, which itself drew a number of inflammatory comments from Instagram users, telling him to scram.
“Find a new home because you’re not welcome at the one you currently live at,” he wrote. “Complete disrespect for [Mom] and Dad’s lives, both who are very weak. Mom has Chemo on Friday and you’re out doing this shit? Go live off on your own and not under your [parents’] roof and you can do whatever you want.”
In a nearly 14-minute video rant posted Wednesday to his Instagram profile, Albanese — an admitted conspiracy theorist — wouldn’t apologize for his actions. The clip makes no mention of his eviction, but he says he has “nothing to be sorry about,” and the same goes for the “hundreds of thousands, if not millions” of people who went out to celebrate July 4 last week.
“The world has been consumed by mass hysteria and paranoia on an unprecedented scale right now,” he says, adding that he refuses to fall for it. “We’re not going to fall for the lab-made virus, we’re not going to fall for the mass-media marketing campaign that’s been going on because it’s all bullshit, every single ounce of it.”
