Ellen Page Calls Out Chris Pratt for Attending ‘Infamously Anti-LGBTQ’ Church
Ellen Page on Thursday criticized Chris Pratt for attending a “infamously anti-LGBTQ” church after he appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and discussed his religious side.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star sat down with Colbert to promote “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” and Pratt said he just finished a 21-day Daniel Fast that he took part in through his church and that his pastor encouraged. He also said the pastor shared with him words of wisdom about balancing fame and his inner self.
“If the spotlight that is shining on you is brighter than the light that’s within you, it will kill you,” Pratt recounted to Colbert.
Page tweeted about the appearance and the pastor shortly after, writing, “Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?”

This Has All Been an Infuriating Sham
To seasoned political watchers and people who have spent the last two years gradually becoming more depressed and hopeless—the Venn diagram of those two things really ought be a circle—this news may come as no surprise, but it is galling nonetheless. Sen. Chuck Grassley, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and old, old man, confirmed this morning that he does not think the pathetic farce of an FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh revealed anything new and thus will be voting to confirm him.

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.

Actor Ving Rhames said neighbor called 911 to report him as 'a large black man' breaking in
During a radio interview promoting "Mission: Impossible Fallout," Ving Rhames said he was a target of racial profiling earlier this year after Los Angeles police came to his home and held him at gunpoint in response to a neighbor calling 911.
The 59-year-old actor recounted Friday that he was watching television in his Santa Monica home when he heard noise coming from the backyard. He said he thought it was his two English bulldogs at first — only to quickly find out it was police.
"I get up, I open the door, there's a red dot pointed at my face from a 9 millimeter," Rhames said on Sirius XM’s The Clay Cane Show on Friday. "And they say, 'Put up your hands.'”

Trump’s enduring political strength with white women, explained
White women voters disapprove of President Donald Trump’s job performance, but nonetheless view him more favorably than other voters — showing that even as a large Trump-era gender gap seems to have opened up, gender remains a less significant marker of political behavior than race and ethnicity or even age.
Tracking polling from Civiqs available online makes it easy to examine Trump’s approval rating among demographic subgroups of registered voters and illustrate the point.
Trump famously won a majority of white women’s votes in 2016, but he is currently unpopular with this group.

A White Man Called Police On A Black Woman Who Was Using A Neighborhood Pool
Police were called in North Carolina Wednesday after a white man confronted a black woman about using a neighborhood swimming pool, prompting allegations of racial profiling and a backlash on social media. The confrontation also follows a string of incidents across the country in which white people have reported law-abiding people of color in everyday life.
The North Carolina incident reportedly happened in Winston-Salem after a white man asked Jasmine Edwards, who is black, for her ID while using a neighborhood pool. Edwards later uploaded video of the ensuing confrontation to Facebook, where she also wrote that "this is a classic case of racial profiling in my half a million $$ neighborhood pool. This happened to me and my baby today."

‘I snookered them’: Illinois Nazi candidate creates GOP dumpster fire
Illinois Republicans botched four opportunities to stop an avowed Nazi from representing their party in a Chicago-area congressional district. Now they’re paying the price.
Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier who will appear on the November ballot as the GOP candidate against Democratic Rep. Dan Lipinski, has become campaign fodder for Democrats as they seek to defeat Gov. Bruce Rauner. And some Republicans even fear the taint from Jones‘ extremist views poses a threat to the party up and down the ticket.

SEX WORKERS FORCED TO DITCH TWITTER FOR ALTERNATIVES AS RESULT OF DONALD TRUMP'S TRAFFICKING LAW
Sex workers have been ditching Twitter for an Austria-hosted social network called Switter, following the passage of a set of controversial bills in the U.S. meant to make it easier to cut down on illegal sex trafficking online.
In April, President Donald Trump signed the House bill known as FOSTA, the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, and the Senate bill called SESTA, or the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act, into law. While supporters hailed the legislation as a victory for sex trafficking victims, critics have said the bills actually negatively impact adult escorts while doing little to actually crackdown on traffickers.
Speaking to German broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW), a spokesperson for Assembly Four, an Australia-based firm that runs Switter and an associated site, Tryst, through an Austrian domain, said that the legislation will “only force more workers into exploitation.”
