Showtime fires Paulie Malignaggi over controversial remarks on racism, racial oppression
Showtime Boxing returns tonight (August 1st) from Uncasville, CT with a vacant WBO bantamweight title between Tramaine Williams and Angelo Leo as the main event, but the broadcast will not feature Paulie Malignaggi’s analysis. In fact, Showtime has axed Malignaggi altogether.
Boxing Scene first reported that the retired former world champion was removed from Showtime Boxing broadcasts for comments he made back in April in an IFL TV interview that he apparently refused to apologize for. When the apology wasn’t issued, Showtime gave Malignaggi the boot. Abner Mares will take his place at least for tonight’s broadcast.
Now we get to Paulie. He directly addressed Haney’s comments by saying that through boxing history, the sport has been dominated by different racial/ethnic groups, and he claims that African-American fighters are no longer the dominant force in boxing like they were in the 30-50 years ago.

Why Hispanic business owners are urging you to BUY-cott Goya products
The Goya Foods boycott is an insult to Hispanics, America’s largest minority group. Politicians and pundits — some Hispanic, many others painfully woke-white — are calling for a boycott of the largest Hispanic food manufacturer and distributor in the nation, a company that employs more than 4,000 people.
The Bodega and Small Business Association, which represents thousands of New York City bodegas, is not taking this lying down. We are urging our stores and customers to stock up on all of Goya’s great products.

A Black Teen Was Jailed for Failing to Finish Her Online Schoolwork
When schools across the country canceled in-person classes amid the coronavirus outbreak this spring, student participation plummeted. Some students — in particular, those from low-income families — lacked adequate access to computers and Wi-Fi to complete their online coursework. Children with disabilities, who often require more in-person support, also struggled to adjust to the abrupt transition to remote learning. But participation issues were widespread: In early April, per the New York Times, teachers in districts across the country were reporting that fewer than half of their students were routinely participating in virtual learning.
Yet despite how common school-participation issues have been amid the pandemic, not all cases have been treated with leniency. ProPublica reports that in mid-May, a Michigan judge found a 15-year-old Black student guilty of “failure to submit any schoolwork and getting up for school,” and sent her to juvenile detention.
Per Judge Mary Ellen Brennan’s ruling, the severe sentence was warranted because the student, Grace — who attends a predominately white school — was on probation for fighting with her mom and stealing another student’s cell phone. Failing to complete her coursework, the judge ruled, was a direct violation of Grace’s probation. At the sentencing, Brennan described Grace as a “threat to (the) community,” and ordered that she be sent to Children’s Village, a 216-occupancy youth detention center. She has been in custody since May 14, when she was removed from the courtroom in handcuffs. In early September, there will be a hearing to review the case.

Black lives matter — so stop supporting policies that have failed Black communities
Although some of the leaders of the best-funded Black Lives Matter organizations seek to move the United States toward socialism and impose other far-left goals (the co-founder of BLM, Patrisse Cullors, acknowledged in a 2015 interview that she is a “trained Marxist”), millions of others who identify with the BLM movement merely want police and criminal justice reforms and greater racial equality.
Improving African American communities is, of course, a noble goal. But it’s exceptionally difficult to fix a problem if one doesn’t identify its cause. And it seems, based on some of the rhetoric from the BLM movement, that many have failed to realize that an important reason why so many Black communities remain impoverished is that liberal politicians have imposed destructive policies on them for decades.

BREAKING NEWS: Death of Robert Fuller, 24, who was found hanging from a tree in a California park last month is ruled a suicide
The death of Robert Fuller, who was found hanging from a tree in a Southern California park last month, has been ruled a suicide.
Sheriff's Commander Chris Marks said Thursday that the investigation revealed Fuller, 24, suffered from mental illness and took his own life early on June 10 in a park near City Hall in Palmdale, a community of about 150,000 people north of Los Angeles.
At the time his body was found, deputies found no evidence of a crime and an autopsy conducted the next day resulted in an initial finding of suicide.

Attorney General William Barr admits unfair policing of African Americans is a 'widespread phenomenon' but rejects calls to defund the police and says 'black lives are protected' by cops
Attorney General William Barr said on Wednesday that the unfair policing of African Americans is a 'widespread phenomenon' before rejecting calls to defund the police.
Protests over the recent police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and other African Americans have ignited a national conversation about the role of law enforcement in society.
During an interview with ABC News' Pierre Thomas, Barr addressed policing in America, saying: 'I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt.'

Ask Not for Whom the Mob Brays / Opinion
Amid the current season of activism, young people have enthusiastically taken both to the streets and the internet, participating in the national discussion over race relations in America.
The New York Times recently reported about a new front in what feels increasingly like a political war: high schoolers creating social media accounts to call out classmates for alleged "racist" speech. Students post screenshots of comments, videos and posts they deem to be hateful, identify the authors through crowdsourcing, and then mercilessly "cancel" them online—sometimes with assistance from social media personalities with millions of followers. Obviously, no effort is made to examine context, understand the commenter's mindset or offer an alternative point of view; the point, after all, is to ruin someone's life for an indiscretion.
Bishop: North Carolina priest kept on leave on abuse claims
A Catholic priest in North Carolina will remain on administrative leave after allegations of sexual abuse against him were revealed last year, the Charlotte diocese's bishop said.
Bishop Peter Jugis made the announcement to St. Matthew parishioners in a letter Wednesday, writing that he had accepted the recommendation of the diocese’s Lay Review Board to keep the Rev. Patrick Hoare out of ministry, The Charlotte Observer reported.
Hoare was originally put on administrative leave in December after the diocese received “an allegation against him of child sexual abuse that was said to have occurred in Pennsylvania more than 25 years ago, before Father Hoare entered ministry” the Charlotte Observer quoted Jugis as writing.

California Abandons Equality under the Law
Here are some unexpected developments: In Mississippi, Republicans have decided to excise the Confederate flag; in California, Democrats have decided to legalize racial discrimination.
Who had that on their 2020 bingo card?
In 1996, California voters by a substantial margin enacted a constitutional amendment reading: “The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group, on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.” The Democrat-run state legislature has just voted to repeal that amendment.
California had a long struggle with race-based admissions practices in its public universities, most famously with the Bakke case, in which the Supreme Court upheld race-based policies. The 1996 amendment was an attempt to sort that out in the most straightforward fashion, by insisting that the state take no notice of race at all in its policies. That was, for some generations, the great aspiration of most good-hearted Americans, who took it to be the dream of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech.
California Democrats such as Assemblyman Todd Gloria insist that eliminating rules against racial discrimination are necessary to “advance true racial and gender equity in this state.” That is, of course, nonsense. It is, in fact, self-refuting nonsense — the fact that the ethnic makeup of California’s state universities does not reflect the ethnic makeup of the state is not an indictment of colorblind university policies but an indictment of the state’s K–12 education system and other institutions. Racial preferences do not create equality — they camouflage inequality.
A racist who refused to wear a mask in a Lyft threatened to crush the skull of his gay driver
A white man who got so upset at being asked to wear a mask in a Lyft driver’s car ended up going on a racist and homophobic rant and was later banned by the service.
In a video recorded on May 28 by the driver Edgar, the man who identified himself as Richard entered the car without a mask. Edgar asked Richard to put on a mask or lift his shirt over his mouth and Richard refused.
“Do you believe in that shit?” Richard said incredulously, referring to either coronavirus prevention measures or coronavirus itself.
“Yes, I do,” Edgar responded, “because I have family that is sick of that.”
Anti-LGBT+ evangelist Franklin Graham says the right to fire people for being LGBT+ is a ‘freedom our nation was founded on’
In a landmark six-to-three ruling on Monday (June 15), the court affirmed that LGBT+ people are entitled to protection from employment discrimination based on their sexual orientation and gender identity under Title VII, an existing sex-based civil rights law.
Naturally, the decision has not gone down well with the anti-LGBT+ evangelical lobby, who have spent much of the past four years plotting to stack the court with conservatives in order to roll back the tide on queer rights.
To add insult to injury, the court’s opinion was penned by justice Neil Gorsuch, a Trump appointee who sided with the liberal justices.
Franklin Graham is fuming that businesses can’t fire people for being gay anymore.
IKEA sacked a homophobe who told co-workers gay people should be killed. Now, it’s being threatened with a lawsuit
The former IKEA employee, identified as Tomasz K, said he was fired last year after he refused to take down a homophobic comment he posted on the firm’s internal site.
“Acceptance and promotion of homosexuality and other deviations is scandalous,” he wrote, alongside several anti-gay Bible verses.
IKEA said at the time that the employee had expressed an opinion “in a way that could affect the rights and dignity of LGBT + people”.
“In addition, the employee actually used quotes from the Old Testament about death, blood in the context of what fate should meet homosexual people,” it added. “Many employees raised by this entry contacted our HR department.”
