Trump Tells NFL Owners to FIRE Protesting Players: “Get That Son of a Bitch Off the Field!”


NFL players reacted with rage on Friday after President Trump told NFL bosses to fire players who protest and disrespect the American flag during games when addressing the national anthem.

Trumps comments were in response to reports that player protests have resulted in low TV ratings and half empty stadiums.

Trump made the statements during a rally for Alabama Senate candidate Luther Strange in Huntsville on Friday night.

NFL players were livid after hearing Trump’s remarks. Many of them took to social media to vent their anger at the Commander-in-Chief.

The NFL Players’ Union also issued a statement, saying they will never back down from protecting the players’ rights to protest.

Burglars left racial messages at home of Giants fullback


aali6y7New York Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock said burglars broke into his New Jersey home and left racist messages all over the wall.

Whitlock told WCBS-TV in New York that a video game system and jewelry were taken, and other electronics were left behind but also said he arrived from a night out with his wife and children to find a swastika, the letters “KKK” and the phrase “Go back to Africa” written all over his home.

“It just re-establishes that no matter where you are, no matter who you are, this can happen to you,” said Whitlock. “It’s about to be 2017. Oppression, racism, hatred, violence, there’s no need for that.”

Authorities said this is the second time the Whitlock’s home has been broken into, with the first break-in happening over the Thanksgiving holiday. That investigation remains open.

“Racism and this 2016 Election” Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


untitledFears of heightened bigotry and hate crimes have turned into reality for some Americans after Donald Trump’s presidential win on Tuesday November 8th. And the list of incidents keeps growing.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, they’ve counted more than 300 cases of hateful harassment or intimidation in the U.S. since Election Day. “They’ve been everywhere — in schools, in places of business, in stores like Walmart and on the street,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said Monday.

While Trump has been accused of fostering xenophobia, hate, racism and Islamophobia, some people have used his words as justification to carry out hateful crimes. In recent days we have witnessed ugly episodes of racist or anti-Semitic pro-Trump graffiti along with threats or attacks against Muslims.

An “Ape in heels” is what they called “Michelle Obama”


15027662_694864644002410_2765496967866923397_nWest Virginia officials are under fire for their comments about Michelle Obama. A nonprofit group’s director and a mayor in a small town in West Virginia have been swept up in a firestorm surrounding comments they’ve made about Michelle Obama that have been perceived as blatantly racist.

“It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels,” according to NBC affiliate WSAZ.

Comments posted by Pamela Ramsey Taylor (pictured above), on her Facebook page about Michelle Obama.

Taylor, who was director of Clay County Development Corp. in Clay, Virginia, a small town outside of Charleston, made the comment about the move from Michelle Obama to Melania Trump.

The news station reported that the town’s mayor, Beverly Whaling, then replied, “Just made my day Pam.”

The comments were later deleted, but images of the post have been shared widely on social media. As of Monday afternoon, an online petition calling for the women’s terminations had garnered more than 14,000 signatures.

Both of their Facebook pages have been removed, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

Russell Simmons Pens Open Letter To Donald Trump


Russel_Donald

A real friend will always tell you the truth and that’s exactly what Russell Simmons did when he penned an open letter to Donald Trump.

Over 30 plus years you have been an amazing friend; endorsing my books, coming to my shows, flying me on your planes, your helicopters, and even allowing my family members and myself to stay in your house in Florida many times. So, it kinda pains me to know that my public statements about your candidacy have strained or ruined our friendship. However, the fact is, what’s at stake is bigger than us.

Trump has been sharing his racist opinions on every subject and leading in the polls in his bid toward the White House.

The self-made millionaire has however, set off a fire storm of controversy with his hateful comments regarding Muslims and Jews. Therefore Russell Simmons stood his position by openly and publicly putting his friend in his place. Simmons wanted it to be outwardly known that he is not in agreement with Donald and his prejudice rhetoric. In addition Simmons stressed how he would NOT support his friend if he initially wins the republican candidacy for the White House bid as a result.

It’s sadly enough, some Americans believe President Barack Obama is Muslim and for this fact, he’s somehow aiding and abetting these terrorist threats toward the United States with no plan of action. And with “The Donald” spewing all of this hate in an intolerant tone, it is no doubt setting the tone for a possible race war.
