NJ woman attacked in Staples after telling customer to mask up or back off

The social-distancing encounter unfolded just after 3:15 p.m. on Wednesday at a Hackensack location, where the unknown assailant improperly wearing a mask walked up a 54-year-old woman using a copy machine, police said.

I WANNA APOLOGIZE TO MY WIFE, KIM K
... 'Please Forgive Me'
A sign of hope ... Kanye West has just apologized to Kim Kardashian for a flurry of public jabs ... asking for her forgiveness.
Ye had been giving Kim the cold shoulder as she tried to reach out to him to get him the help he needed -- this after he lapsed again into a serious bipolar episode, hurling a barrage of disparaging tweets that took aim at her, her mom, Kris Jenner, and others in the family. He even said he'd been trying to divorce her for a while now.
Ye said a lot, but it would seem the most hurtful comment was last Sunday in South Carolina, when he said he wanted Kim to get an abortion but she would not and had the baby anyway. There were other things too -- allegations of cheating, etc., but it sure seems the abortion talk was the most hurtful, and one thing we know ... Kim's protective of her kids.
Black man holding an American flag tells protesters in Portland 'none of you guys represent Black lives' as he tries to protect the Federal Courthouse from vandals
A black man holding an American flag has been filmed telling protesters in Portland 'none of you guys represent Black lives'.
The unidentified demonstrator stood outside the Federal Courthouse on Saturday evening, footage shared on Twitter shows. In the clip he attempts to protect the building from vandals who tore down a fence.
Portland has seen nearly two months of nightly protests since the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Late Saturday, demonstrators broke into a building, set it on fire and started dumpster fires, police said.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Where Is the Outrage Over Anti-Semitism in Sports and Hollywood?
Recent incidents of anti-Semitic tweets and posts from sports and entertainment celebrities are a very troubling omen for the future of the Black Lives Matter movement, but so too is the shocking lack of massive indignation. Given the New Woke-fulness in Hollywood and the sports world, we expected more passionate public outrage. What we got was a shrug of meh-rage.
When reading the dark squishy entrails of popular culture, meh-rage in the face of sustained prejudice is an indisputable sign of the coming Apatholypse: apathy to all forms of social justice. After all, if it’s OK to discriminate against one group of people by hauling out cultural stereotypes without much pushback, it must be OK to do the same to others. Illogic begets illogic.
Ice Cube’s June 10 daylong series of tweets, which involved some creepy symbols and images, in general implied that Jews were responsible for the oppression of blacks. NFL player DeSean Jackson tweeted out several anti-Semitic messages, including a quote he incorrectly thought was from Hitler (not your go-to guy for why-can’t-we-all-get-along quotes) stating that Jews had a plan to “extort America” and achieve “world domination.” Isn’t that SPECTRE’s job in James Bond movies?
Ice Cube calls Kareem Abdul-Jabbar a Judas for taking '30 pieces of silver' after the NBA legend criticized him and Nick Cannon for anti-Semitism which will damage BLM
Florida homeowner shoots and kills two 'extremely violent' burglars and injures another after they broke into his house during the night
A teenager is facing charges for a would-be armed home invasion robbery in Florida in which his two accomplices were shot and killed and he was wounded.
Jeremiah Trammel, 19, was shot after his accomplices, Luis Casado, 21, and Khyle Durham, 21, had already been shot dead during the alleged break-in.
The person who shot the two men was the homeowner who was using a gun to defend himself in Wesley Chapel, near Tampa.

Are there no sensible people in this race debate, says VIRGINIA BLACKBURN
But no matter.
We now live in a world where estate agents can no longer refer to the master bedroom (slavery), no one talks about manholes (sexist), blacklists, blackmail and even, for the love of heaven, peanut galleries.
This last was a new one on me, but apparently it refers to the cheapest seats in the theatre, home to what we must absolutely no longer call the "great unwashed".
Rather, the "ablutionary challenged."
But it's the white/black issue that is clearly causing the real furore.
And why stop there?
In the ballet Swan Lake, there is a White Swan, who is the embodiment of purity and goodness, and a Black Swan, who is evil incarnate. Clearly, gotta go.

'We met a Karen': Black and Latino residents film woman accosting them for using their neighborhood pool who demands their address because she doesn't recognize them
An unknown woman has been filmed demanding that two black and Latino residents prove they live in the neighborhood by giving her their address.
The video, filmed in North Carolina earlier this week, shows a white woman questioning two people that she doesn't recognize, accusing them of trespassing into her neighborhood to use the pool - despite the fact they also live there.
In an apparent racial dispute the woman, dressed in yellow and holding her phone up as if about to make a call, shouts: 'I know everyone who lives here.'

Dean Cain Smokes Hollywood’s Self-Canceling Trend with Just Six Words
In recent weeks, Hollywood and the arts world in general seem to have lost their minds, starting with streaming service HBO Max pulling “Gone With The Wind” — and in just the past few days, as my colleague Jeff Charles wrote, country band The Dixie Chicks changing their name to “The Chicks,” which I agree will surely “end racism forever.”
Now, the trend – which I’m dubbing “pre-emptive self-canceling” – has apparently gone into overdrive, A whole slew of creative people are jumping off the cliff, removing themselves from their jobs for some alleged, race-related transgression, before someone does it for them.
It includes everything from authors who aren’t allowed to create fictional characters… because they’re of a different race…

The outrage over Split keeps growing and it won't stop
Split, a movie that both entertained and, in a move no one saw coming, also revealed itself, in its final moments, to be a secret sequel to Shyamalan's 2000 hit, Unbreakable. Unbreakable was the director's dark-horse follow-up to the box-office smash The Sixth Sense. Since Unbreakable was a superhero origin movie, it made sense that it would get a sequel, as most successful superhero movies do — but it had been over 15 years, so Split's connection with Unbreakable was a bona fide mic drop.
Unfortunately, Split's success wasn't the only thing moviegoers were discussing about it. Split's star (and villain), played by James McAvoy, is a person with split personalities — hence the name of the movie. Since Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is a real condition, the question was almost immediately raised whether it's appropriate to portray someone like that as a monster.
UFC news: Joe Rogan slammed for Black Lives Matter protest comments on podcast
Speaking with biologist Bret Weinstein on last week’s The Joe Rogan Experience, the 52-year-old commented that the Black Lives Matter movement was ‘leaderless’ and ‘attractive to young people [who] feel disenfranchised by the system’.
“What’s the end goal? That doesn’t seem to be very clear. There are kids out, chanting no justice, no peace. I’m like ‘what justice are you talking about?’,” Rogan questioned.

LGB Alliance, which claims to stand for gay rights, argues it isn’t homophobic to oppose same-sex marriage in deleted tweet
The anti-trans pressure group performed a swift volte-face after making the claim in a since-deleted tweet, sent Thursday (June 18), which read: “To those people saying it is ‘homophobic’ not to be in favour of gay marriage have a look at the statistics. It seems it’s rather a small minority who have made their wedding vows.”
It also included the hashtags #CanWeDropItNowPlease, #NotABigDeal and #PluralityOfViewsIsAllowed.
The evidence used to back up this argument was an image of a graph from the Office for National Statistics showing that lesbian, gay and bisexual people are more likely to be single than married.

KJ Apa Addressed His Black Lives Matter Activism After Elijah Daniel Called Him Out
A week after comedian and rapper Elijah Daniel called KJ Apa out for being “so silent” about the Black Lives Matter movement, the Riverdale actor is now defending himself — but plenty of followers think his response further cemented Elijah’s point.
On June 2, KJ posted a black square to his Instagram on so-called #BlackoutTuesday, which many Black activists and celebrities have pointed out added static rather than spread meaningful change.
Several days later on Twitter, a fan recommended that Elijah watch The Hate U Give, the 2018 film (based on the book by Angie Thomas) that stars Amandla Stenberg as a teenager named Starr who witnesses the murder of her best friend Khalil by police. KJ plays Starr's boyfriend, Chris.
