Dismantling the Myth of the “Black Confederate” 

 

Spend any amount of time talking about slavery on the internet, and you’ll eventually encounter the claim that there were “black Confederates” that fought for the South. “Over the past few decades, claims to the existence of anywhere between 500 and 100,000 black Confederate soldiers, fighting in racially integrated units, have become increasingly common,” writes historian Kevin Levin in his new book, Searching for Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth.

“Proponents assert that entire companies and regiments served under Robert E. Lee’s command, as well as in other theaters of war.” Look, believers say (directly or subtextually): The Confederacy can’t have been so bad for black people. Otherwise, why would they have defended it?

Levin’s book explains how this myth came about—while neatly dismantling it. We spoke recently about actual Confederates’ perspectives on black soldiers; why former “body servants” attended Confederate reunions during Jim Crow; and how the World Wide Web gave this story legs.

Kicked out, spat on and abused, new UK shelter helps LGBT+ homeless 

 

LONDON, May 15 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Apart from being spat on and urinated on when he slept rough in London for over a year, 52-year-old Chabahn had to contend with another daily threat: being abused and attacked for his sexuality.

Chabahn, who is gay but kept it hidden on the streets, said living with HIV was an additional burden that some mainstream shelters did not have the capacity to support him with.

"When it comes to being LGBT, the amount of discrimination on the street is rather high. There is no safety, you have to fend for yourself," said Chabahn, who declined to give his full name.

"You have to become a very good actor and you have to be someone that you are not."

Howard Stern says Robin Williams interview was ‘possibly my biggest regret’ 

 

If you have the chance to listen to one of Howard Stern’s old interviews, don’t, the radio icon advises. If you have one of his previous best-selling memoirs, “Private Parts” or “Miss America,” Stern advises, “Burn them.”

Famous for asking celebrities about their sex lives, Stern regrets the shock jock he was.

“I was an absolute maniac,” he recalls of his career’s first couple decades. “My narcissism was so strong that I was incapable of appreciating what somebody else might be feeling.”

He adds: “I have so many regrets about guests from that time. I asked Gilda Radner if Gene Wilder had a big penis.”

Of course, he hasn’t changed that much. His new collection of interviews and reminiscences is titled “Howard Stern Comes Again,” after all.

How the politics of racial resentment is killing white people 

 

Why do many working-class white Americans support politicians whose policies are literally killing them?

This is the question sociologist and psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl tries to answer in his new book, Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland. The book is a serious look at how cultural attitudes associated with “whiteness” encourage white people to adopt political views — like opposition to gun laws or the Affordable Care Act — that undercut their own health.

The book is not about racism at the individual level, though you can certainly read that into it. For Metzl, the key question is how did a politics of racial resentment become so powerful that it overwhelmed even the basic instinct for self-preservation? To get answers, he spent years talking to voters in Southern and Midwestern states, asking them to explain their political choices. The answers aren’t terribly satisfying, but they are instructive.

I spoke to Metzl about what he learned and what he thinks we can do to solve this problem. A lightly edited transcript of our conversation follows.

A religious right group that sued the city of Houston, Texas in a desperate attempt to stop the children’s reading event Drag Queen Storytime were quickly laughed out of federal court. So now they say they’ll spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to get revenge.

The Campaign for Houston PAC filed the lawsuit seeking an injunction to prevent the event from happening. They claimed it violated the freedom of religion clause in the constitution.

Parkland students criticize NRA over banned guns at upcoming Pence event 

 

Parkland survivors criticized the National Rifle Association after it announced guns are being banned from Vice President Mike Pence’s upcoming speech at the organization’s annual convention later this week.

The NRA posted a disclaimer on the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum event page, saying that due to Pence’s attendance, Secret Service will be responsible for event security. Therefore, “firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance."


President Donald Trump will also reportedly speak at the convention and firearms will be banned for his portion as well.

The Kid From 'The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven' Is Now An Adult — And He's Suing The Publisher Of The Controversial Book 

 

After being paralyzed in a 2004 car crash at the age of six, Alex Malarkey made headlines in 2010, when Christian publisher Tyndale House released an "autobiography," The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven, attributing the story to Malarkey and his father, Kevin. According to the book, during the two months Malarkey spent comatose after the crash, he died and went to Heaven, where he met Jesus and heard the voice of God. He retracted the story in 2015, saying that it was a fabrication he created for attention, and Tyndale withdrew the bestselling book from publication. Now, the Boy Who Came Back from Heaven author is suing his publisher, saying that he was never consulted as to the authenticity of the story, and that he and his mother, Beth, have received no money from sales of the book.

S.E. Hinton Got Into a Twitter War with Fans Who Think Her Characters in ‘The Outsiders’ Are Gay 

 

Novelist S.E. Hinton spent Monday night rebuffing fans who questioned the sexuality of her characters in her iconic young adult novel The Outsiders.

What began as Hinton responding to a fan who wondered whether there is anything romantic between characters Johnny and Dallas quickly escalated into an online debate over the characters’ sexuality.

Hinton first responded to Twitter user VVAnn‘s question by asking for text to support an interpretation of same-sex attraction between Johnny and Dallas. Hinton then rebuked the user for saying a same-sex relationship in her book would be “cute.” Wrote Hinton, “ask someone in the ’60’s how “cute” it was to be gay.

I have many friends I love & do not want to sleep with.”

Mormon Teen Tells Parents She’s Gay, Gets Punched In Stomach 

 

In the new book Saving Alex, 21-year-old Alex Cooper details what happened after she came out to her parents as gay when she was 15. The subtitle of her book -- When I Was Fifteen I Told My Mormon Parents I Was Gay, and That's When My Nightmare Began -- clues the reader into what she encounterd. But everyone's idea of a nightmare is different. Does Cooper's experience rise to the description? Depends on how you feel about authority figures forcing a teen girl "held captive," as the book claims, being made to stand for hours facing a wall with a pack full of rocks strapped to her back. Or being punched in the stomach ("direct punches to the gut") which Cooper says was also part of her "conversion therapy."
