NBA players are already snitching on Disney bubble violators
The NBA’s “snitch hotline” is apparently blowing up.
As part of a 113-page memo, the NBA set up an anonymous hotline for players to report peers they suspect are breaking the rules.
Multiple tips have already been submitted to the hotline, according to The Athletic, to report potential protocol violations. The NBA is attempting to uphold a bubble-like atmosphere in Orlando, Fla. in order to resume its season later this month.
The tips have already irked some around the league. Clippers guard Lou Williams posted a rat emoji on twitter. In an interview with Bleacher Report, Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie — who is sitting out the restart after testing positive for coronavirus — announced “To all my fellow NBA players, don’t call the snitch hotline.”
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.

Hollywood's identity crisis: Actors, writers and producers warn of 'reverse racism' in the film industry which has created a 'toxic' climate for anyone who is a white, middle-age man
A revolution is under way. White actors are being fired. Edicts from studio bosses make it clear that only minorities – racial and sexual – can be given jobs.
A new wave of what has been termed by some as anti-white prejudice is causing writers, directors and producers to fear they will never work again. One described the current atmosphere as 'more toxic than Chernobyl', with leading actors afraid to speak out amid concern they will be labelled racist.
The first sign came with one of the most powerful black directors in Hollywood, Oscar-winning Jordan Peele – the man behind box office hits such as Get Out and Us – stated in public that he did not want to hire a leading man who was white.
'I don't see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,' Peele said. 'Not that I don't like white dudes. But I've seen that movie before.'

At least 17 people shot in NYC on Monday as gun violence continues to soar
At least 17 people were shot in New York City on Monday — a tally that would be considered high for a weekend day, but is “astronomical” for early in the week, law enforcement sources said.
No borough was spared from the gunplay, but Brooklyn saw the most violence with 10 shooting incidents and a total of 12 victims, sources said.
“Those numbers would be high for a Friday or Saturday, but for a Monday they are astronomical,” said one high-ranking Brooklyn cop.

Oliver Stone Criticizes Hollywood for Turning Into an 'Alice in Wonderland' Tea Party
Oliver Stone is not a fan of the current state of Hollywood and is in no hurry to work with a studio on a mainstream film as he says the town has gone "mad."
Talking to the New York Times Magazine for a recently published interview with David Marchese, the controversial Stone called modern moviemaking "ridiculous."
"It's just so expensive — the marketing," Stone began. "Everything has become too fragile, too sensitive. Hollywood now — you can't make a film without a COVID adviser. You can't make a film without a sensitivity counselor. It's ridiculous." The Oscar-winning filmmaker granted the interview to discuss his upcoming memoir, Chasing the Light.
"The Academy changes its mind every five, 10, two months about what it's trying to keep up with," Stone told the magazine. "It's politically correct [expletive], and it's not a world I'm anxious to run out into. I've never seen it quite mad like this. It's like an Alice in Wonderland tea party."

New Jersey police chief steps down after he's heard 'calling the nation's first Sikh state attorney general 'that fucking guy with the turban' and describing a prosecutor as "hot"' in leaked audio recording
A New Jersey police chief has stepped down after allegedly making derogatory and racist comments about an Asian-American former county prosecutor and the state's first Sikh attorney general.
It's not known when the audio was recorded however several people can be heard talking in the recording with one person heard describing Attorney General Gurbir Grewal as 'that f****** guy with the turban ... I want to pull him like a top.'

Park is a member of the Council of Korean Americans.
Female Robot Erica Slated As ‘Actress’ For New Movie Woefully Miscasts AI, Repercussions For Self-Driving Cars
A recent news story shaking up Hollywood involves the reported casting of a robot to be the star of a $70 million budgeted science fiction movie.
You might be puzzled as to why any undue notice would come from opting to use a robot in a sci-fi movie, which has otherwise seemingly been the case for decades.
Here’s the twist.
The backers of the film are alleging that the robot will use AI and essentially act or perform in the same manner that a human actor might do so, thus, in their estimation, this will be the first time that a movie starred an artificially intelligent actor.
For all of you aspiring actors, if you weren’t already worried about the bleakness of landing an acting job, note that once those AI-based robots become part of the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) and begin auditioning for juicy roles on film and TV, you are going to become even more despondent about your chosen career path.
Imagine coming home after a grueling audition for a part in a new series, and upon being asked by a close friend about how it went, for which you then grumble that a darned robot seemed to win over the producer and director and you lamentedly have once again lost an acting gig to one of those robot-turned-actor androids.
Curse the robots!
T.I. on Snitch Accusations: 'Shoot Me in the Head Nigga If You Think I'm a Motherfuckin' Rat'
"One of the community service mandates was this commercial," T.I. explained. "Mind you, what they wanted me to do was to stand in front of some police and shit ... So, it got down to the last day before I had to turn in my thousand hours and motherfuckers were like 'You still gotta do this drop.' So, I did the drop. Tip has never gave any information to any law enforcement to get any man any amount of time, period."
Later, Tip justified his decision. "This is what I was speaking to, I was speaking to civilians, nigga. Nigga if you a civilian nigga and you see a motherfucker breaking in a motherfuckin' old lady house and that old lady got raped, beat up, robbed, or a kid missing or some shit like that, nigga if you ain't finna go out and handle that shit yourself nigga, you gon' have to goddamn get some authorities involved at some point and time."
Seattle Police Say Most Non-White Officers Will be Fired if City Cuts Budget
The Seattle Police Department (SPD) announced that many of their newly hired, non-white officers would be the first let go should the city continue with drastic, politically motivated talks of budget cuts.
Seattle Police told residents Friday that current City Council discussions about cutting the department's budget by 50 percent would be "catastrophic for public safety." Seattle Chief of Police Carmen Best warned activist groups and council members alike that the department's "newest, most broadly diverse officers on patrol" would be the first employees they are "forced to terminate" under the proposed budget cuts. Best wrote a letter to Mayor Jenny Durkan Friday cautioning that at least 50 percent of BIPOC officers would be the first people fired.
Burger King workers stage strike after trans co-worker dies while working with COVID-19 symptoms
Staffers at the Santa Monica fast food restaurant retaliated after Angela Martinez Gómez died after being reportedly made to work a week even while displaying symptoms. Picketers, as well as the complaint, claimed that the company did not provide staff with protective gear.
One manager at the branch at 1919 Pico Boulevard allegedly blamed the death of Gómez, 42, of Oaxaca, Mexico, on hormone injections, KTLA5 reported.
Managers made Gómez carry on working for a week even while she spluttered, took frequent bathroom breaks and was visibly ill, the complaint said, before leaving her June 26 shift early.

Widow condemns "barbaric" death of driver beaten over masks
The wife of a French bus driver who was beaten to death after he asked four passengers to wear face masks aboard his vehicle called Saturday for “exemplary punishment” for his killers.
The assault on Philippe Monguillot has scandalized France. President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday dispatched the interior minister to meet the driver's widow after his death was announced Friday. He had been hospitalized in critical condition after the July 5 attack.
Veronique Monguillot said she told the minister, Gerald Darmanin, that she and their three daughters were “destroyed” by the attack on her husband at a bus stop in Bayonne, southwest France.
“We must bang a fist on the table, so this never happens again,” she said. “It's barbaric, not normal. We must stop this massacre."

Sports Illustrated Model Valentina Sampaio Calls Attention to Violence Against Trans Women
Valentina Sampaio made headlines on Friday when Sports Illustrated announced that she would be featured in this year’s Swimsuit Issue, making her the first trans model to appear in the publication’s iconic annual installment—at least the first one that we know of! In case you’re not aware, trans women have been building successful modeling careers without publicly disclosing their transness since before Sports Illustrated published its first Swimsuit Issue in 1964, though many of those models—like April Ashley, Tracey Norman (a.k.a., Tracey Africa), and Caroline Cossey—had their careers totally derailed after they were outed by the press.
