The Disunited States: Heavily armed Black Panthers target Confederate monument used by KKK as American flags are burned near Trump Tower and in Washington as Fourth of July protests sweep the country
More than a hundred heavily armed Black Panthers descended on the country's largest Confederate monument to demand its removal, while demonstrators burned American flags near Trump Tower as tens of thousands across the country attended Fourth of July protests.
On Saturday, as Donald Trump hosted hundreds at the White House for a July Fourth fireworks display, thousands of Americans ditched their traditional cookouts and celebrations for rallies and sit-ins, including a march in Washington DC in the searing 90-degree heat near the National Mall.
Flag burnings were also seen in Washington, as well as in New York City outside the Trump Tower, and on Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

Gay Hookup App Must Pay $240,000 For Leaving Private Photos Exposed
After leaving users’ private photos exposed for more than a year, the gay dating and hookup app Jack’d has to pay out, literally. The app’s owner Online Buddies has agreed to cough up $240,000 in a settlement with the New York attorney’s office for their negligence with the sensitive data of 7,000 New York users.
As Out reported in February, Jack’d updated the app to close the loophole discovered by cybersecurity researcher Oliver Hough that allowed people to access supposedly private photos uploaded to Jack’d. While reports, at the time said that Hough had emailed Jack’d three months prior, he revealed to Out via screenshots that the emails dated back a year. Jack’d and Online Buddies did not take any action until after Hough went to the press. British tabloid The Register first broke the story.

The two slaves, a father and daughter, were stripped to the waist and positioned for frontal and side views. Then, like subjects in contemporary mug shots, their pictures were taken, as part of a racist study arguing that black people were an inferior race.
Almost 170 years later, they are at the center of a dispute over who should own the fruits of American slavery.
The images of the father and daughter, identified by their first names, Renty and Delia, were commissioned by a professor at Harvard and are now stored in a museum on campus as precious cultural artifacts.
But to the Lanier family, they are records of her personal family history. “These were our bedtime stories,” Shonrael Lanier said.
