Two fact-checks on the Notre Dame burning yesterday

1. Misleading tweet by Faith J. Goldy, trying to allege jihadists for arson: Truth Or Fiction?

However, the second tweet received under two dozen shares, while the misleading one was shared thousands of times. Moreover, when screenshots of the tweet migrated to platforms like Facebook, they lacked a live link to the article, the “correction,” and the complete headline which clearly contradicted Goldy’s claims.

Old news stories with headlines that do not specify a timeframe are often weaponized by disinformation purveyors to great effect, as many people cannot or will not read the linked story because of time constraints or a paywall. Newsrooms can avoid this and other pitfalls by changing the headlines on old stories and clearly labeling publishing dates. We detail this and other easy methods for stopping or s

Runaway Negro Creek changed to Freedom Creek due to offensive name

On Thursday the U.S. Board on Geographic Names voted to make things right and change the name of the waterway called Runaway Negro Creek, to Freedom Creek, after residents lobbied to remove the culturally insensitive term, Savannah Now reports.

According to a press release from Sen. Lester Jackson (D-District 2), the name change was originally proposed after a public interest meeting during the summer of 2017, where residents voiced concerns saying it was culturally insensitive.
And only two years later, they finally made it, found this creek a new name. And so creative!, to call it Freedom Creek, because African-American slaves may have found their freedom when running down this creek. Great!

Backlash after Ilhan Omar-9/11 reference grows

The video Drumpf retweeted on Friday pulls a snippet of Omar's recent speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in which she described the 2001 attack on New York's World Trade Center as "some people did something" and includes news footage of the hijacked planes hitting the Twin Towers.
Remember: This is like sending Trump death threats after he failed to fully punish the attacker at the Unite The Right rallye. It didn't happen. Why? Because left-wingers follow by a codex of minimum decency. The right fails to grow this certain amount of decency. Therefore, Ms. Omar's life is threatened by now.
The Muslim politician also tweeted a quote from former President George W Bush, who said days after the attacks: "The people - and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!"
"Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack?" Omar tweeted. "What if he was a Muslim."

Pete Buttigiegs (D - IN) perfect image starts to crack

An Indiana judge will rule soon on whether to release five cassette tapes of secretly recorded conversations between South Bend police officers that led to the 2012 demotion of Police Chief Darryl Boykins, the city’s first ever black police chief.

Buttigieg’s critics say he’s gone to great lengths to conceal the contents of the tapes, which some believe could include racist language by white police officers.

“There’s a level of frustration,” said Karen White, a city councilwoman and Democrat who is black. “We want this issue to be brought to closure to ensure this issue does not polarize our community further. We have a right to know [what’s on the tapes], as do our citizens."

White Nationalism hearing escalates as right-winged pundit Candace Owen's comments on Hitler were heard

Both sides of the aisle were eager to note just how forcefully, at least superficially, they condemned white nationalism. Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) opened the hearings by saying it was “sadly necessary to examine an urgent crisis in our country.” Ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA), meanwhile, claimed that House Republicans had “led the chamber’s unequivocal revocation of white nationalism.”

Some of those testifying did address glaring problems in the current approach to combating white nationalism. Eileen Hershenov of the Anti-Defamation League noted how fringe online communities like Gab and 8chan had created “24/7 white nationalist rallies.” Kristen Clarke of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law asked why the FBI had devoted resources to investigating Black Identity Extremists while allowing white supremacist movements to grow at an alarming rate.

Petition to ban Swedish Youtube star Pewdiepie didn't surprise him at all

Felix went to counter the allegations of instances in which he had been accused of propagating white supremacy. Some of them, according to the Felix, were fake and didn't happen at all, while the others he explained by saying that hey happened a long time ago.

The response comes after Maria Ruiz's petition, which called for putting a stop to normalizing white supremacy on the internet and referred to PewDiePie's channel as hotbed of fomenting white-supremacist ideas, gathered over 77,000 signatures.

This is not the first time that the Swedish content-creator has faced flak for racism and white-supremacist content. In 2017, US's Wall Street Journal uncovered nine videos and clips of the Swede in which he can allegedly be seen displaying anti-Semitic and racist content.

Motel 6 to pay $12 mn in order to avoid lawsuit filed by state of Washington

The budget motel operator illegally shared the personal information of about 80,000 customers for more than two years, resulting in a "targeted" ICE investigation into guests with Latino-sounding names, the Washington state attorney general's office announced Thursday.

"Each time Motel 6 released a guest list, it included the private information of every guest at the hotel without their knowledge or consent, violating their expectation of privacy," Attorney General Bob Ferguson's office said in a statement. "The Motel 6 guest information disclosures led to significant harmful consequences, including the detention and deportation of many guests and the suffering of their families."

"ICE agents approached him in the hotel's parking lot, detained him and deported him some days later. His wife had to retrieve the presents and his other belongings from the Motel 6 after his arrest," the attorney general's office said. "The man was the sole provider for the h

Three predominantly black churches victimised by arsonists

Mount Pleasant is about 10 miles south of Greater Union Baptist Church, which burned down early Tuesday. St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre was destroyed in a fire early in the morning on March 26.

The fire consumed the inside of the rural church, burning holes through the roof, but leaving much of the brick exterior standing. At daybreak, smoke continued rising from the historic structure.

“My church has a lot of history,” he said. “I don’t understand it. What could make a person do that to a church?”
Either racism or reformative stances that fell to high dislike among a disappointed churchgoer. This question will be disclosed to the police who hopefully will soon solve the puzzle that is hereby given.

South Africa downgrades embassy to Israel, subsequent to op-ed by former ANC minister Ronnie Kasriels

First, the op-ed, published by The Guardian:

Israel’s repression of Palestinian citizens, African refugees and Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza has become more brutal over time. Ethnic cleansing, land seizure, home demolition, military occupation, bombing of Gaza and international law violations led Archbishop Tutu to declare that the treatment of Palestinians reminded him of apartheid, only worse.

Last week, a public meeting in Vienna where I was scheduled to speak in support of Palestinian freedom, as part of the global Israeli Apartheid Week, was cancelled by the museum hosting the event – under pressure from Vienna’s city council, which opposes the international movement to divest from Israel.

Racist lawyer spat into flight attendant's face after racist tirade

Judge Nicholas Wood, sentencing at Isleworth Crown Court in the UK, told Simone Burns: "The experience of a drunk and irrational person in the confines of an aircraft is frightening, not least on a long-haul flight and poses a potential risk to safety."
Why the hell did she have to be drunk and Irish? This is such a cliché. Of course not the fact that she was racist, this is rather unusual, but the fact that she was drunk, on a flight, and she even is a lawyer, a business that is required a tad more decency, at least to my understanding. God damn, there are things I wish I had never read in my life.
Burns (50), who is known as Simone O Broin, of First Avenue, Hove, sat quietly in the dock as she was sentenced to six months for being drunk on an aircraft and two months for assault.

AfD-Mitglied beschäftigt künftig IB-Vorsitzenden Daniel Fiß

Daniel Fiß' politische Wurzeln liegen in der Neonaziszene in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Er war zunächst Mitglied der Jungen Nationaldemokraten, der Nachwuchsorganisation der NPD, und lief auf rechtsextremen Demonstrationen mit. In den vergangenen fünf Jahren wurde er während seines Politikstudiums in Rostock zur Führungsfigur der Identitären Bewegung und stieg in deren Bundesvorstand auf.
Und jetzt ein Job bei einem AfD-Politiker, das kann sich wohl sehen lassen, für beide Seiten.
Seine herausgehobene Rolle bei den Identitären spiele für ihn keine Rolle, schrieb Droese: "Ich nehme vor der Einstellung keine Gesinnungsprüfung der Mitarbeiter vor."

19-year old dies for having knocked at the wrong door while being black

"He pleaded for his life. He was like, 'Hold on, I am sorry, I am sorry' and the dude shot him," a witness said.

"He has five kids, he was literally protecting his family. His truck was stolen earlier this week. Right now, that's all they're trying to do is protect their family," Makayla Johnson said.
You don't protect your family when you behave like a mad paranoid and shoot down innocents. He was not involved in his truck theft, he didn't do anything to him. He even cried that he was sorry, there was no need to shoot him down. But as it seems, gunning down others when feeling offended must be a usual action in the US, land of the free and of a party that thinks that more guns will create more safety. This is some fucked-up shit.

Is Israel moving towards the far right wing?

In fact, just last May, Israel passed a nation-state law, which ended once and for all, any supposed confusion about Israel's identity. The new law openly declared Israel as "the nation state of the Jewish people", completely disregarding the Palestinian people and marginalising their rights, culture, language and history.

Camus, himself, has expressed his admiration for Israel on a number of occasions. In December 2017, after Donald Drumpf moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, he tweeted: "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Israel is a model of resistance. We must make Europe a greater Israel".

"There is nothing wrong with preserving our own Judeo-Christian civilization. That is our duty […] Look at Israel, learn from Israel; Israel is an island in a sea of Islamic barbarism. Israel is a beacon of freedom and prosperity in a region of Islamic darkness. Israel refuses to be overrun by jihadists. So should we."

Mother to fatally shot son Antwon Rose II. still fighting for justice

Former East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld fatally shot Rose in the back, arm and side of the face as the 17-year-old fled from an unlicensed taxi that Rosfeld had pulled over following a drive-by shooting.

The teen "was unarmed, and he did not pose a threat to the officer or to the community, and the verdict today says that is OK, that is acceptable behavior from a police," Merritt added.

Zaijuan Hester, 18, who was in the car with Rose before he was killed, pleaded guilty last week to charges related to the drive-by shooting.

Why fascists have always been trolls

The Nazis were dedicated trolls who weaponized their insincerity to take advantage of liberal societies ill-equipped to confront them. This was not done just for political advantage—rather, the insincerity itself was a moral act, an expression of contempt for the weak.

The original Nazis were open about their intentions, but their strategic insincerity created a fog of doubt that allowed observers to avoid the obvious. In 1922, The New York Times infamously declared that many believed “Hitler’s anti-Semitism was not so genuine or violent as it sounded, and that he was merely using anti-Semitic propaganda as a bait to catch masses of followers and keep them aroused, enthusiastic, and in line for the time when his organization is perfected and sufficiently powerful to be employed effectively for political purposes.” In 1930, even after the Nazis had become the second-largest party in the German legislature, the Times assured its readers that “there is no present basis for assuming that th... show more


On the aftermath of an underfunded judiciary system

Evans’s record against Flowers is 1–5. First, he obtained a conviction that was set aside by the state appeals courts because of misconduct designed to confuse and mislead the jury—he introduced evidence of crimes that were not before the court; implied that he had evidence that a defense witness had lied when there was no such evidence; and told the jury about “taped statements” by Flowers that didn’t exist. In the next two trials, he obtained convictions by engaging in the precise misconduct alleged in this case: intentionally using race to skew the jury against Flowers, who is African American.

If challenges by a prosecutor (or, less often, a defense lawyer) seem to follow a racial pattern, opposing counsel may allege a “prima facie” case of discrimination; if the judge agrees that there is a questionable pattern, he or she convenes a “Batson hearing,” in which the lawyer using the challenges is allowed to give a “non-racial” r... show more


Rep. Steve King (R - IA) uncertain about whether a white society was superior to a nonwhite one

“I don’t have an answer for that. That’s so hypothetical,” Mr. King, Republican of Iowa, told her. “I’ll say this, America is not a white society — it has never been a completely white society. We came here and joined the Native Americans.”

I wouldn't call a genocidal commitment and the full displacement of Natives from their homeland joining.

Mr. King again faced scrutiny on Monday after a post on his Facebook page speculated who would win a second civil war between red states and blue states.

On Tuesday, pressed by a reporter from CNN, Mr. King told constituents that he “wasn’t aware” that the image had been published on his Facebook page the night before, and said he does not personally manage that page.

On the semantics and pragmatics of hatred

(Please mind the editor's note if this text appears familiar to you, you might have read it before. Trump has also spoken positively about the manifesto the Christchurch shooter has written and published. He doesn't think that White Nationalism was an actual threat, in the country that is home to the KKK and Madison Grant. One should really know about one's country's history and presence. Trump, on the other hand, is part of the problem, altogether.)
This seems to be part of a broader developing idea: ignore the tweets. Ignore Drumpf’s inflammatory language. Ignore the words. What counts is the policy outcomes. People took Drumpf’s “American carnage” inaugural address seriously, but after an exhausting year, it’s tempting to find an excuse to stop listening.

Politics is persuasion as well as coercion. Immediate policy outcomes mainly have to do with coercion: who is taxed, regulated, expropriated, imprisoned, deported, conscripted, what wars are fought, who is kept out of the co... show more


Prozessauftakt gegen Mörder von Daniel H. in Chemnitz

Den Ermittlungen zufolge geriet der flüchtige Iraker in jener Augustnacht auf der Straße mit dem späteren Opfer in Streit. Nach Informationen mehrerer Medien soll Farhad A. unter Drogeneinfluss gestanden und zusammen mit dem späteren Opfer Kokain konsumiert haben. Als es zwischen Farhad A. und Daniel H. zu einem Streit kam, sei Alaa S. dem Iraker zu Hilfe geeilt. Beide hätten anschließend "ohne rechtfertigenden Grund" mit Messern mehrfach auf den 35-Jährigen eingestochen, heißt es in der Anklage.

Dem widersprach der sächsische Ministerpräsident Michael Kretschmer. "Es gab keinen Mob, keine Hetzjagd und keine Pogrome", so Kretschmer. Meldungen, denen zufolge rechtsextreme Gruppen Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund durch die Stadt gejagt hätten, seien falsch. Er sagte auch, der Staat lasse sich das Gewaltmonopol nicht nehmen. Er geißelte die "politische Instrumentalisierung durch Rechtsextremisten" als "abscheulich".

Indonesia intends to ban AUS Sen. Fraser Anning to enter

”As I condemned the terrorist acts in two mosques in Christchurch, I also strongly condemned the official statement of Senator Fraser Anning of Queensland who basically assumed that terrorism against mosques was a price worth paying [by]Muslims and that Islam is an 'ideology of violence',” Charles said on Saturday evening.

An Indonesian national identified as Lilik Abdul Hamid was killed when a gunman opened fire during Friday prayers at the mosques in Christchurch. Two other Indonesians were injured. A right-wing Australian extremist, identified as Brenton Tarrant, has been arrested in connection with the attack. (ipa)

The mysterious deaths of two young BLM protesters in Ferguson, Missouri

Police say there is no evidence the deaths have anything to do with the protests stemming from a white police officer’s fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and that only two were homicides with no known link to the protests.

— Edward Crawford Jr., 27, fatally shot himself in May 2017 after telling acquaintances he had been distraught over personal issues, police said. A photo of Crawford firing a tear gas canister back at police during a Ferguson protest was part of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage.

Bush said her car has been run off the road, her home has been vandalized, and in 2014 someone shot a bullet into her car, narrowly missing her daughter, who was 13 at the time.

Donald Trump not a white supremascist, says acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney

Wallace asked if Drumpf has considered making a major speech “condemning anti-Muslim, white supremacist bigotry?” because of the criticism he has faced.
“The president is not a white supremacist. I’m not sure how many times we have to say that,” Mulvaney replied.

This doesn't answer the question, though; when is Trump going to speak out decidedly against racism, Islamophobia, bigotry and discrimination of minorities? When?

“And to simply ask the question every time something happens overseas or even domestically, to say, ‘oh my goodness, it must somehow be the president’s fault,’ speaks to a politicization of everything that I think is undermining sort of the institutions that we have in the country today,” Mulvaney added.

Alabama newspaper editor resigns over publisher's comment to the KKK to «ride again»

On the Christchurch shooting and Donald Trump

"I spoke with Prime Minister Ardern of New Zealand to express the sorrow of our entire nation following the monstrous terror attacks at two mosques," Drumpf said in the Oval Office on Friday afternoon after first condemning the attack as "a horrible massacre in the Mosques" on Twitter.

Australian Senator blames shooting victims for their own death

“However, while this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within the community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence.

“The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”

“They are comments that are going to cause greater division, and they have already led to a number of sites – one by the white supremacist movement – praising the actions of the shooter,” Mr Rajan said.

On White Nationalism's deep American roots

The seed of Nazism’s ultimate objective—the preservation of a pure white race, uncontaminated by foreign blood—was in fact sown with striking success in the United States. What is judged extremist today was once the consensus of a powerful cadre of the American elite, well-connected men who eagerly seized on a false doctrine of “race suicide” during the immigration scare of the early 20th century. They included wealthy patricians, intellectuals, lawmakers, even several presidents.

“Even though the Germans had been directly influenced by Madison Grant and the American eugenics movement, when we fought Germany, because Germany was racist, racism became unacceptable in America. Our enemy was racist; therefore we adopted antiracism as our creed.” Ever since, a strange kind of historical amnesia has obscured the American lineage of this white-nationalist ideology.

On the (actual) crisis at the border

More than 76,000 migrants were apprehended crossing the southern border last month, the highest February in more than 10 years and the highest month of the Drumpf administration. The number of apprehensions tops any month during the 2014 border surge under President Barack Obama, which no one had a problem calling a crisis at the time.

There is no mechanism to return these migrants home, to hold them after they cross the border, or to remove them once they are in the interior. And word has gotten out. There’s a reason that the subset of migrants that we can’t stop from getting into the country is rapidly growing.

We should question why there is no such mechanism to return them. Because then, we would get to the actual crisis: The irresponsibility of the US ( country founded by immigrants) when it comes to safely returning those people.

Fired police officer sentenced to 25 years in jail for manslaughter

They found the 41-year-old Raja guilty Thursday of manslaughter and attempted murder for the 2015 death of Corey Jones. He faces a sentence of between 25 years and life. Aronberg declined to comment on the specifics of the case until the April 26 sentencing.

Raja was in plain clothes and driving an unmarked white van when he drove the wrong way up a darkened ramp to Jones' stalled SUV. Prosecutors said an audio recording showed Raja never identified himself and approached Jones aggressively, making him believe he was being robbed.

Apparently, the man was black, which infuriated the sentenced police officer even more.

Mapping affective polarisation in the US

To find out, The Atlantic asked PredictWise, a polling and analytics firm, to create a ranking of counties in the U.S. based on partisan prejudice (or what researchers call “affective polarization”). The result was surprising in several ways. First, while virtually all Americans have been exposed to hyper-partisan politicians, social-media echo chambers, and clickbait headlines, we found significant variations in Americans’ political ill will from place to place, regardless of party.

In general, the most politically intolerant Americans, according to the analysis, tend to be whiter, more highly educated, older, more urban, and more partisan themselves

He found, for example, that age, race, urbanicity, partisan loyalty, and education did coincide with more prejudice (but gender did not). In this way, he created a kind of profile of contemporary partisan prejudice.

Detroit man files lawsuit for gardening while being African-American

Peeples alleges that the women — Deborah Nash, Martha Callahan and Jennifer Morris — had their own plans for the park and wanted to see him "incarcerated or seriously injured by law enforcement."

I guess those women thought that he should be picking cotton somewhere in dem ol' cotton fields back home. Gardening is a job made for Meheecans.

Two months later, as Peeples was in Hunt Park teaching a group of home-schooled students about gardening, one of the women called 911 and falsely reported that Peeples was a convicted pedophile and wasn't legally allowed near kids, the complaint said. Police arrested Peeples in the park.

Seriously, what is wrong with those women?

"I can not for the life of me understand why the First Lady would single out the African American pages for this — or — why she would ask them such an insensitive question."

Does anyone else wonder that she indirectly told those black students that it was actually the Africans' fault to have been enslaved? I mean, the African-Americans can surely imagine best how it is to be oppressed by people who think they were superior to them. She would've bette... show more


Racism became major topic during MIchael Cohen Testimony

“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean they aren't racist,” Tlaid said. “And it is insensitive, and some would even say that the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman, in this chamber, in this committee”—here she took a heavy sigh—”is alone racist in itself.”

“As everybody knows in this chamber, I'm pretty direct,” Tlaib, who entered Congress amidst controversy over her use of the word “motherfucker” to describe Drumpf, continued. “So if I wanted to say that I would have, but that's not what I said.” She added, “I was not referring to you, at all, as a racist.”

Oscar winner Spke Lee holds fiery anti-Trump speech

“We will have love and wisdom regained, we will regain our humanity. It will be a powerful moment. The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there.”

__When Lee heard that Green Book, a movie about a white man driving a black man through the segregated South, beat BlacKkKlansman, he was clearly pissed. He rose from his seat to leave the theater, but was stopped at the doors. He turned his back to the stage in protest and only returned to his seat after the speech was done._

Ehem. Verfassungsschutzchef Hans-Georg Maaßen und Politikwissenschaftler Werner Patzelt schließen sich konservativen «WerteUnion» an

Darunter verstand Mitsch explizit eine Politik „gegen eine ungesteuerte Zuwanderung von Migranten“, wie sie von Angela Merkel noch immer betrieben werde. Zugleich stimmte Mitsch einer umstrittenen Äußerung von Bundesinnenminister Horst Seehofer (CSU) zu, der damals – entgegen einer Äußerung des früheren Bundespräsidenten Christian Wulff – erklärt hatte, der Islam gehöre nicht zu Deutschland.

„Ich halte es für schlecht sowohl für die CDU als auch für die politische Stabilität in unserem Land, wenn es rechts der Mitte neben der Union noch eine weitere Partei mit nennenswert starken Parlamentsfraktionen gibt. Insofern ist mein Beitritt zur Werteunion die praktische Konsequenz aus meiner jahrelangen Kritik daran, dass die CDU zum rechten Rand hin eine Repräsentationslücke hat aufreißen lassen.... show more


Rep. Steve King (R - IA) unaware of any hostile comments to apologise for

King earlier this year came under fire after he questioned, during an interview with The New York Times, why the terms “white supremacist” and “white nationalist” had become offensive. The congressman since has repeatedly tried to distance himself from the comments and claimed he was misquoted.

Republicans and Democrats in the House also approved a rare resolution rebuking King for his statements on white supremacy and white nationalists. In addition, he was removed from his committee assignments.

Muh free speech!!1!!!!!!!!!1!!

Stand up for the Pledge of Fucking Allegiance, you Commie scum!

The sixth-grader from a Tampa suburb allegedly told his substitute teacher the flag is "racist" and the national anthem is offensive to black people, Bay News 9 reported, citing a statement the teacher gave the district.

Talking about the freedom of expression and indoctrination by Cultural Marxists, huh? To me, this looks like an archaic enactment from a time in which patriotism was part of the schedule at schools.

In response, the teacher said she asked the student why not go to another place to live if it was "so bad here." She said he answered, "They brought me here."

Also, once I wondered whether the Pledge Of Allegiance was still being recited in schools, before the beginning of the lesson. Now I know, and it's still an archaic procedure, like the morning prayer in private religious schools.

Jair Bolsonaro: Slayer of the indigenous people

“With Bolsonaro, the invaders are feeling more at ease,” Bitete Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau, who lives on an Indigenous reserve, told The Intercept by telephone.

Last month, the image of a bullet-riddled metal plaque reading “National Indigenous Foundation, Protected Territory” made the rounds on WhatsApp, Brazil’s most popular messaging app. The sign marks the entrance to one of several villages in the vast Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau Indigenous reserve, in a lawless region of the Amazonian state of Rondônia, near the Bolivian border.

Days after signing the decree, Bolsonaro tweeted a video clip of another one of his ministers who argued in a cable news interview that many of the existing Indigenous reserves were established using fraudulent documents, and called the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples “spurious” and “treasonous.”

Investigations continue, Kaepernick's participation in league uncertain

The league and Kaepernick’s lawyer sent out statements Friday saying that “the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances” and that a confidentiality agreement would prevent either side from commenting further.

The protests slowed down this season, as the NFL made contributions to organizations chosen by players and promised more attention to social justice issues. But the controversy reignited every time there was a development in the case.

While he has been away from the playing field, Kaepernick has become an advocate for battling social and racial injustice. On Thursday, a person with knowledge of the conversations told the AP that Kaepernick turned down a chance to join the fledgling Alliance of American Football , seeking $20 million or more from the upstart league that pays its players $225,000 over three seasons.

The US territory, including its colonies

Were Japan’s targets considered “the United States”? Legally, they were indisputably US territory. But would the public see them that way? What if Roosevelt’s audience didn’t care that Japan had attacked the Philippines or Guam? Polls taken slightly before the attack show that few in the continental US supported a military defense of those remote territories.

But it is also missing Puerto Rico, which, although not a state, has been part of the country since 1899. When have you ever seen a map of the US that had Puerto Rico on it? Or American Samoa, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, the Northern Marianas or any of the other smaller islands that the US has annexed over the years?

The racism that had pervaded the country since slavery also engulfed the territories. Like African Americans, colonial subjects were denied the vote, deprived of the rights of full citizens, called racial epithets, subjected to dangerous medical experiments and used as sacrificial pawns in war.
