Black voters won’t take the Blexit ramp to vote for Trump
In an effort to radically change the dynamic, conservative television pundit Candace Owens is urging black Americans to join her in a new political campaign to break bonds with a half-century of fealty to Democrats. Her movement is called “Blexit.” You see what she did there: black and exit.
Trump is no friend to black voters or their interests. Long before he mounted a race-baiting presidential campaign, Trump had established his bonafides as someone who was, in the words of The New York Times’ David Leonhardt and Ian Prasad Philbrick, “obsessed with race for the entire time he has been a public figure.”
Insufferable gay Trump supporter hurls racial slurs at Lyft driver, refuses to leave vehicle
Shawn Pepas Lettman is a Lyft driver and father of two from Brooklyn. Last weekend, he found himself the target of a racist attack by gay Trump supporter who refused to get out of his car.
It all started when a passenger leaving a gay club requested Lettman change the music in his car. Lettman declined the request and the passenger became irate, prompting Lettman to pull over.
In the video, the passenger can be seen screaming into his phone at Lyft customer service, hurling racial slurs at Lettman, making offensive threats, and refusing to get out of the car until he is refunded his $8.01 for the ride and police arrive so he can file a report.
Don't fool yourselves. The driver sucked too. 10-Oct-2018
White New York City Teacher Who Stepped On Black Students' Backs During Slavery Lessons Wants To Sue Over Reverse Racism
In peak Caucasity, a white Bronx social studies teacher who is facing being fired after stepping on Black students’ backs during a lesson on slavery, is now claiming that she is the real victim of racism (literally, reverse racism) and intends to file a lawsuit, which her lawyer says could be worth up to $1 billion.
According to the New York Daily News, the issue started back in February at Middle School 118, when Patricia Cummings picked out black students, told them to lie on the floor and stepped on their backs to show them what it felt like during a lesson on U.S. slavery, per the reports of multiple students and one staffer.
Now, Cummings has filed a notice of claim, filed in anticipation of a lawsuit, claiming that she is the real victim here of reverse discrimination, defamation, negligence and a litany of other claims.

Some schoolgirls in the United Kingdom have been pressured by their peers into undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM), according to FGM survivor and campaigner Leyla Hussein, Britain's Press Association reported.
Hussein, who founded the Dahlia Project in 2013 to help other survivors, said that she has spoken with many young women who say they feel vulnerable to becoming a victim to a crime that is still seen by many as a cultural practice or tradition, rather than a violent sexual offense, PA said.
"Some of my clients are 19-year-old girls now who were children or were born in this (country) and they will say to you they were pressured in a playground in a school in London to go and have it done," she said.

Frontier Airlines Suspends Pilot Accused of Threatening Trans Girl
Since a group of parents declared it was “hunting season” on transgender people in response to news that a 12-year-old trans girl used the women’s bathroom at her school in Achille, Okla., the school shuttered its doors over the violent threats and her supporters held a silent demonstration. Now Frontier Airlines has suspended a pilot who allegedly threatened the young girl known only as Maddie, according to Oklahoma TV station KOCO.
The pilot was accused, along with several other adults, of threatening to do harm to Maddie simply for using the women’s restroom once when she couldn’t access the faculty bathroom, as she was told to do.
While the airline would not name the pilot involved with the incident, it released a statement confirming the pilot was suspended August 13 and condemning his actions.
