Attorney General William Barr admits unfair policing of African Americans is a 'widespread phenomenon' but rejects calls to defund the police and says 'black lives are protected' by cops
Attorney General William Barr said on Wednesday that the unfair policing of African Americans is a 'widespread phenomenon' before rejecting calls to defund the police.
Protests over the recent police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and other African Americans have ignited a national conversation about the role of law enforcement in society.
During an interview with ABC News' Pierre Thomas, Barr addressed policing in America, saying: 'I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt.'

GETS MAN CHARGED WITH 2 FELONIES
The victim's mom, Stephanie Hagler, tells TMZ ... she hopes once Moore's arrested, nobody posts his bail. In a perfect world, Moore wouldn't get bail. That being said, she says, "I appreciate the police department for taking the case so seriously, and I know my son appreciates it too. I don't think I will feel any relief until he is arrested. As of now it's just words on paper there hasn't been any real consequence."
The man who shot the video, Micheal Curry, tells us Moore MUST be arrested because "anyone who's willing to hit a kid like that, there's no telling what they're going to do next."

41 shot Saturday night in NYC with at least 4 dead in citywide explosion of gun violence
New York City turned into the Wild West as a series of shootings claiming four lives and injuring 37 others erupted amid Fourth of July celebrations.
The shocking wave of violence came as the city was reeling from ongoing anti-police brutality protests, weeks of lockdown orders prompted by the coronavirus outbreak and soaring summer temperatures. Adding to the chaotic atmosphere, illegal fireworks exploded in all five boroughs throughout the night.
In the first fatal shooting of the night, Jose Cepeda, a young father, was blasted in the chest a little after midnight Sunday in East New York, Brooklyn.
Cepeda, 20, and a friend had a “little disagreement” in front of the victim’s home on Atkins Ave. near Pitkin Ave. that turned deadly, neighbor Natasha Ramsay told the Daily News.
“The first one shot got him dead,” Ramsay, 42, said. “It’s so sad.”
Medics rushed Cepeda to Brookdale University Hospital but he couldn’t be saved.
That was just the first in a series of horrifying incidents that cop unions blamed on Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who last week passed an annual budget that shifted about $1 billion away from the NYPD, a move aimed at meeting activists’ demands for police reform.

YouTuber Tati Westbrook says she was 'weaponized' by Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star in plot to ruin beauty guru James Charles - insisting they fed her lies and 'gaslit' her into making a video about his alleged predatory behavior
YouTube star Tati Westbrook has made shocking new claims against fellow influencers Jeffree Star and Shane Dawson, accusing them of 'using' her in a plot to destroy the career of beauty guru James Charles by 'manipulating' her into making a video exposing his alleged predatory behavior.
The 38-year-old opened up about a year-old drama in a very tearful video posted to her YouTube channel on Tuesday, finally shedding some light on the bitter feud between herself and Charles, which was sparked when she called him out for 'seducing straight men' and 'tricking them into thinking they are gay'.
When the claims were first aired in Westbrook's May 2019 video, they prompted a bitter backlash against Charles, who lost more than three million subscribers in the wake of the video going live. Westbrook also faced fury from his fans, and subsequently disappeared from her channel for months.

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?”
Men compete to impregnate a woman on this deranged new reality show
Remember when Love Is Blind was the most extreme reality TV show anyone could envisage? Getting engaged sight-unseen was just crazy and hardcore enough to make cringey and absolutely addicting entertainment…
Well, FOX has outdone itself with its newest reality show, which began airing at the end of May. Labor of Love is a game show where men compete for the privilege of impregnating a woman. Yes, you read that right. As if 2020 hasn’t already proven society is on the verge of collapse, TV execs decided America needed a dating show that sounds creepily reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale’s rapey, dystopian plot.

Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford has been arrested after his former girlfriend accused him of assaulting her during an argument over a man she had begun dating.
An arrest affidavit filed Wednesday by Houston police states that the ballplayer-turned-record producer went to the home of Gabriele Washington on May 8, produced a handgun from which he unloaded the ammunition in her presence, then demanded information on her latest dating relationship.
Washington told investigators Crawford pushed her to the floor, slammed her head against a wall and choked her after she told him that she had not had sex with the man she was dating.

Majority of queer men and women refuse to have sex with a partner with ungroomed pubic hair, eye-opening study says
An eye-opening study found that, when it comes to pubic hair, more than half of queer men and women would refuse to have sex with a partner who is ungroomed, you know, downstairs.
The study from Save.Health surveyed 1,207 people, where around 11 per cent were queer men and 11 per cent were queer women.
Around 58 per cent of queer men and 65 per cent of queer women told survey taskers that they believe grooming their pubic hair makes them more sexually attractive
To add to this, 51 per cent of queer men and 59 per cent of queer women said they were not willing to have sex with a partner who is ungroomed.
Of course, when it comes to pubic hair, the researchers stressed: “Our recommendation, in true Lizzo form, if they don’t like your natural hair, kick them out the door.”

Without empathy the term ‘community’ is redundant
This idea of belonging and imagined private utopias were characterised in the subvertive explorations of the mid-twentieth century works of David Hockney’s pictorial escapes in Domestic Scene (1963), retreats in his Cavafey poetry inspired The Beginning (1966), or differently in a more sexually liberating yet overtly violent esoteric excess William Borough’s novel Wild Boys (1971). However courageous in their time for avocation for same sex relations, in retrospect collectively they portray queer visibility as lacking in outward empathy and visibility for others. This has become confounded.
Such manifestos for a vision for a supposed utopia doesn’t widen for the inclusion for lesbians, transgender and BAME individuals. Also how does their context fit within the queer landscape of today given the lack of presence for others, especially where historically queer spaces and our representation are largely tailored and dominated by cis white gay men. This hasn’t largely been questioned to the extent till now in which Rosie Hastings and Hannah Quinlan’s practice observes and rightly exposes.

Capps had three beers on the flight and went to the front of the plane to get more, but he was sent back and told to wait for the in-flight service. When the duty-free trolley came down the aisle, Capps took 400 cigarettes from it and hid them under his seat.
Flight attendants warned him to stop causing trouble, but then he attacked.
