More Americans Supported Hitler Than You May Think. Here's Why One Expert Thinks That History Isn't Better Known
These days, and especially since the deadly rally in Charlottesville, Va., last August, it has become clear to many Americans that the specter of Nazism in their country is not resigned to 1930s history. But until very recently, even that part of the story was less well known than it is today.
In fact, when Bradley W. Hart first started researching the history of Nazi sympathy in the United States a few years ago, he was largely driven by the absence of attention to the topic. Hart’s new book Hitler’s American Friends: The Third Reich’s Supporters in the United States argues that the threat of Nazism in the United States before World War II was greater than we generally remember today, and that those forces offer valuable lessons decades later — and not just because part of that story is the history of the “America First” idea, born of pre-WWII isolationism and later reborn as a slogan for now-President Donald Trump.

11 Black Men Share Stories About Encountering Racism Within The Gay Community
2. "They've forced me into having anal sex several times and said that 'black people can handle the pain better.'"
Some white guys say that they don't like 'dark guys' (this term is awful) because of taste or because their dicks are too big for them. Some friends have hooked up with me thinking only about the chance to see a big dick or because they imagine that black guys are better in bed. They've played with my hair and 'complimented' me on my sexual performance because I'm black. They've also forced me into having anal sex several times and said that 'black people can handle the pain better.' —Rafael Porto, 25 years old.

White-supremacist rally near White House dwarfed by thousands of anti-hate protesters
White supremacists held a rally in Washington on Sunday, and almost no one but their opponents and the police showed up.
Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of last year’s violent and deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, wanted to hold an anniversary demonstration there, but the city wouldn’t let him. So he brought his show to Washington, where he hoped 400 supporters would join him for a rally at Lafayette Square, across from the White House. Fewer than 40 turned out.
The group was met by thousands of protesters who filled their half of the leafy, seven-acre park chanting “Go home, Nazis!” “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” and “Black lives matter!” They drowned out whatever message Kessler and his small band of followers had hoped to deliver — and that was their goal.
Black Americans are asserting their rights in “white spaces.” That’s when whites call 911.
What is driving the surge of incidents in which white people have called the police to report black people who are simply going about their business — hanging out at Starbucks, eating lunch in a “common room” at Smith College, barbecuing in a public park?
Part of the answer has to do with the ubiquity of cell phones and social media, which allow news of racist incidents (which have always existed) to spread quickly.
Yet there is also a sociological explanation. Many white people have not adjusted to the idea that black people now appear more often in places of privilege, power, and prestige — or just places where they were historically unwelcome.
When black people do appear in such places, white people subconsciously or explicitly want to banish them to a place I have called the “iconic ghetto” — to the stereotypical space in which they think all black people belong, a segregated space for second-class citizens.
A lag between the rapidity of black progress and white acceptance of that progress is responsible for this impulse. This is also exacerbated by the current presidential administration, which has emboldened white racists with its racially charged rhetoric and exclusionist immigration policies.

Catholic League boycotts Burger King over ‘c word’
The Catholic League has decided it’s had enough of Burger King and they are calling for a boycott. You know what that means? More burgers for us.
Apparently Catholic League President Bill Donohue didn’t appreciate the use of the “c-word,” as he called it, on the Samantha Bee show Full Frontal. Since Burger King ads were playing at the time and were not canceled after his request, he’s taking his beef out on the company.
These Businesses Don’t Want Your Money if You’re LGBT, Married or Not
Thanks to the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, the conversation around religious liberty and LGBT rights in the United States has been focused mostly on wedding services in recent months: Should bakers be able to cite religion in order to deny wedding cakes to same-sex couples? Can florists refuse to arrange flowers? What about stationery shops?
But as a recently-decided Hawaii Supreme Court case should remind us, anti-LGBT groups don’t just want to make it legal to deny wedding services to LGBT people, they want to make it legal to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity in virtually every area of public life.

This guy is suing Grindr for allowing discrimination against Asians
An Asian man says he plans to sue Grindr for racial discrimination.
Sinakhone Keodara is the CEO and founder of the Asian Entertainment Television company. He recently announced on social media that he’s organizing a class action lawsuit against the hookup app.
In the post, Keodara says that Grindr allows “white gay men to write in their profiles ‘no Asians’, ‘not interested in Asians’: or ‘I don’t find Asians attractive’,” which, he believes, leads to people feeling “offended, humiliated, degraded and dehumanised” by the app.
