James Corden Gets Slammed Online After Rumors Surface Of Him Replacing Ellen DeGeneres
With Ellen DeGeneres' future on TV hanging in the balance -- even though her team swears she's returning -- rumors have already begun to circulate about who may be the next star in line to take over the daytime throne. Those rumors have fallen at the doorstep of "The Late Late Show" host James Corden, but as many believed the singing host to be one of the nicest people in Hollywood, others are now claiming Corden is not as nice as he appears on TV.
The reports first surfaced through UK outlet, The Sun, who claims 41-year-old Corden has been thought of as the "long term successor" by network executives before Ellen's scandal went public.
"Y'all know people in the UK absolutely LOATHE James Corden, right?" one fan wrote on Twitter.
They added, "There are so many stories about that dude, it would make your head spin. All the shit you've heard/read about Ellen, apply it to James. Seriously."

Ellen DeGeneres Addresses Workplace Allegations and Changes Forthcoming in Staff Letter (Exclusive)
With the culture at her eponymous talk show under fire, Ellen DeGeneres is speaking out.
In a letter to her crew, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, DeGeneres addresses the alleged workplace misconduct, which was detailed in a Buzzfeed story published earlier this month. The widely circulated piece includes a host of former employees' anonymous accusations of racism, intimidation, unjust termination and an overall toxic work culture, perpetuated by the show's top producers. The report prompted an in-house investigation by Telepictures parent WarnerMedia, which is said to now be largely complete.
In her note, DeGeneres takes responsibility, insofar as the show bears her name, and insists that steps will be taken to "correct the issues" going forward. "As we've grown exponentially, I've not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done. Clearly some didn't,” she writes. "That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again."
EXCLUSIVE: Ellen DeGeneres is telling show executives she's had enough and is ready to call it quits as staffers slam her apology and claim she's the problem and has 'enabled the toxic culture at the show to go on for so long'

Trump campaign leans into Goya controversy in new Spanish ads
President Trump’s reelection campaign is leaning into the recent controversy over Goya Foods with a slate of Spanish-language television and radio advertisements as he seeks to cut Joe Biden’s margin with Hispanic voters.
The Trump campaign announced Wednesday that a television ad highlighting “Democrats’ shameful smear campaign against Goya Foods, a beloved Hispanic-owned family business” and two radio ads will begin airing in Florida, and a third radio ad will be released “in other regions.”
The ads appears to cast Democrats as socialists and extremists, claiming that the party members are "too extreme for Hispanic Americans."
“From Democrats’ support for socialism, to cutting school choice and police funding, they are just too extreme for Hispanic Americans—and Joe Biden is too weak to stand up for us. Now, with the left's assault on Goya, it's clear that not even your abuela's Sazón would be safe in Joe Biden's America,” Latinos for Trump said in a statement in announcing the ads.
“Oh man, all these leftists are the same. They’re so intolerant. Imagine if they get more power,” says one woman in one of the radio ads set to air in Florida. “I came here to be free.
Beware Those Who Would Reduce America's Multicolor Landscape to Black and White / Opinion
It's easy to shrug off the story of the city of Seattle's efforts last month to address racism as just another quirky anomaly in these unsettled times.
But Americans do so at our peril.
The City's Office of Civil Rights gathered white employees for a mandatory session entitled "Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness." A researcher who reviewed the curriculum noted that the instructor taught that all "white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their [own] 'humanity' and [has] caused 'harm and violence' to people of color."
"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character," so said Rev. King.
That's so 20th century.
Being born white is the woke generation's original sin. The list of demands to get out of white, racist purgatory are quite daunting:
Forget truth. It doesn't count; feelings do.
A person's personal dreams must make way for groupthink.
History must be erased to be replaced by authentic socialists like Karl Marx.
Collective memory must take a knee to intersectionality—connecting dots by fiat not fact.
Traditional morality—a racist vestige best forgotten by the old and then unlearned by the young.
Police? Defund them.
Law and order— a vicious concept leveraged to enslave people of color

There’s a Divide in Even the Closest Interracial Friendships Including ours.
It was one of those perfect California nights, not too cold or too hot. Ann’s backyard was strung with lights and punctuated with the cheerful buzz of conversation as people milled around with glasses of rosé in hand. She had offered up her patio as the venue for a friend’s birthday party. And—even better—Aminatou happened to be in town. She was in Los Angeles for a work trip and had been looking forward to attending the backyard soiree because she knew and liked the birthday girl and many of the other guests.
When she showed up, the party was already in full swing. Aminatou found that the snacks were delicious and the mood lovely. But what should have been a fun night celebrating and catching up with friends turned sour when Aminatou noticed that she was the only Black person milling around Ann’s back patio.

Idris Elba says he doesn't 'believe in censorship,' racist shows and movies should not be removed
The 47-year-old actor told the Radio Times during an interview published Tuesday that he believes in free speech and sometimes that includes speech that might not be widely accepted.
"To mock the truth, you have to know the truth. But to censor racist themes within a show, to pull it – wait a second, I think viewers should know that people made shows like this," the "Luther" actor said when asked about his thoughts on removing content with offensive jokes.
While Elba said he understands networks may have removed racially insensitive content due to the Black Lives Matter movement, he believes there's a better way to go about addressing those films and shows.
"Out of respect for the time and the movement, commissioners and archive-holders pulling things they think are exceptionally tone-deaf at this time – fair enough and good for you," he said. "But I think, moving forward, people should know that freedom of speech is accepted, but the audience should know what they’re getting into."

Why is Netflix Canceling So Many Shows?
Over the last few weeks, a number of big-name Netflix shows have been renewed for their final seasons. Most recently, the streamer canceled both The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Dead to Me, both of which will release their final episodes in late 2020 and 2021. Though the streaming service does not reveal many of their viewing figures, both were popular shows that spent multiple days in the Netflix top 10. As such, fans have been wondering why Netflix is canceling so many of their shows.

On second thought. Give the lobster to them (the children.) I'll starve. Who gives a fuck. 11-Jul-2020
I am holding her and her tribe responsible for attempting to take food out of community mouths. Some people depend on cooking with Goya products. We enjoy the products because it reminds us of our heritage, its affordable and it's home. Some of us actually like who we are. I don't give a fuck where food comes from as long as we eat. Just because you are afforded privilege doesn't mean you get to take. Unless you are going to make whole every person denied food, keep your paws clipped.
PS: If you are going to make everyone whole, I want lobster... 11-Jul-2020
Double win at Supreme Court elates religious conservatives
NEW YORK -- Conservative-leaning faith leaders and their allies, outspoken in recent years about what they consider infringements on religious liberties, cheered Wednesday as the Supreme Court issued a pair of rulings that protected certain rights of religious employers.
In Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, the high court sided with two Catholic schools in finding that certain employees of religious schools, hospitals and social service centers can’t sue for employment discrimination. Critics fear the 7-2 ruling will embolden some religious organizations to fire or otherwise discriminate against LGBTQ employees.
And in Little Sisters of the Poor v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, also decided 7-2, the court upheld the Trump administration’s allowance for a broad religious or moral exemption from the Obama-era Affordable Care Act's requirement that employers provide free contraception. Opponents say the decision could leave more than 70,000 women without it.
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.
WA teen accused of child exploitation ring links, charged with ‘abhorrent’ sex child abuse
A WA teenager has been charged with more than 200 child sex offences for allegedly abusing boys as young as three.

Police will allege the man is linked to a national online child exploitation network and sexually assaulted five boys, who were aged between three and 11 and known to him through family and friends, between 2014 and 2020.

Nextdoor Ends Its Program for Forwarding Suspicions to Police
Nextdoor.com Inc., the neighborhood social networking app, is discontinuing a feature that allowed users to forward their posts directly to local police departments, the company announced late Thursday. The move comes as Nextdoor faces scrutiny over its role as a platform for racial profiling, its increasingly cozy partnerships with law enforcement, and after reports that some of its community moderators were removing posts that mentioned Black Lives Matter. But the company is retaining other features that facilitate communication with police through the app, including one that allows direct messages to law enforcement.
“As part of our anti-racism work and our efforts to make Nextdoor a place where all neighbors feel welcome, we have been examining all aspects of our product,” the post read. “After speaking with members and public agency partners, it is clear that the Forward to Police feature does not meet the needs of our members and only a small percentage of law enforcement agencies chose to use the tool.”
