Hundreds of white fans jeered a biracial woman representing Japan after win at US Open


The presentation of Naomi Osaka's first grand slam trophy was overshadowed on Saturday night by a bout of tears from the newly-crowned US Open winner, following her beaten opponent Serena Williams' on-court meltdown.

The trophy ceremony was met with a chorus of boos from Williams' home US Open crowd, who had been unhappy at her treatment during the match.

Williams was earlier given a game penalty after she angrily took issue with umpire Carlos Ramos and tournament referee Brian Earley late in the second set. The rarely seen game penalty was the result of three code violations for Williams, the first after she was accused of receiving in-game coaching, the second for smashing a racket, while the third and final violation was dished out after Williams launched a tirade of abuse at Ramos.

The controversial finish cast a cloud over what should have been Osaka's shining moment.

Well, I'm not wrong, am I?

I mean, isn't that what happened?

EDIT: Thankfully, Serena Williams stepped up and calmed a classless crowd. Watching how ashamed that young woman was heartbreaking.

Laura Ingraham Says Ron DeSantis Should 'Demand Apology' From Opponent

Florida gubernatorial Republican candidate Representative Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that if elected, his African-American Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, would “monkey” up the state. Republicans and Democrats alike denounced the statement, saying that even if it wasn’t intended as a racial slur, DeSantis should apologize.

But on Thursday morning, Fox News host Laura Ingraham said that DeSantis should “demand an apology” from Gillum “for falsely accusing him of racism.”

During an interview with DeSantis on her radio show, she imparted her advice on the candidate, “You know what I'd do? I'd demand an apology of him. That's what I would do,” Ingraham said. “‘You want me to apologize? You apologize for falsely accusing someone of racism to avoid a debate on the issues."’ I'd turn it right around on them. “‘You should apologize because it's pathetic to try to turn this into some kind of racial litmus test.’”

No shock this rich, racist white woman would demand this.

NYU Professor and Feminist Scholar Found Responsible for Inappropriate Physical Contact, Sexual Text


An 11-month Title IX investigation headed by NYU’s Office of Equal Opportunity found Professor of German and Comparative Literature Avital Ronell responsible for “inappropriate physical contact” and sending sexual texts to former graduate student Nimrod Reitman. Ronell has been suspended for the upcoming academic year for the policy violations.

Ronell — a leading feminist scholar — was Reitman’s doctoral advisor. In the report, he alleges that over the course of three years, starting in the spring of 2012, the professor nonconsensually touched his body and kissed his cheeks and lips on many occasions. On one occasion before he officially began his doctorate program, Reitman alleged that in Ronell’s apartment in Paris, she “… touched his crotch over his clothes, with her buttocks, by pushing her body into his.” Among descriptions of similar encounters, he said Ronell made him lie in her bed, refused to work with him if he did not reciprocate and emailed and called him constantly.

This story is wild.

Nevada inmate charged in 1984 hammer killings near Denver

Source: NBC

AURORA, Colorado — A Nevada inmate convicted of attacking a couple with an ax handle in their bedroom is being charged with killing four people with a hammer in suburban Denver over 30 years ago, authorities announced Friday.

Local and state law enforcement officials said DNA evidence ties Alexander Christopher Ewing to the slayings of Patricia Louise Smith, 50, in Lakewood and three members of the Bennett family in Aurora in 1984.

A hammer was used to kill Smith on Jan. 10, 1984. About a week later, a different hammer was used to kill Bruce and Debra Bennett and their 7-year-old daughter Melissa in Aurora. A 3-year-old daughter, Vanessa, was injured but survived.

The two cases were tied together by DNA evidence.

This was a pretty well known cold case. DNA does it again.

Just a reminder....the Jackass Radicals are not with the left and never were.

In regards to Whitmer's Michigan primary victory

1. Barf

That Shri Tander or whatever only ran as a spoiler. And I heard there were problems with the voting machines/ballots, etc. I hope the fucking Republican wins.

Thankfully, El-Sayed appears as if he will throw his full support behind our nominee. But, as they are fond of saying at that shithole "This is not about one candidate blah blah blah" so I'm sure they'll tell him to fuck off by this afternoon.
