Slain woman’s dad: Don’t use her death to promote racism

BROOKLYN, Iowa --- The father of slain Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts in an opinion piece spoke out against using his daughter's death in support of "views she believed were profoundly racist," a call that comes after President Donald Trump and others seized on the suspected killer's immigration status to argue for changes in U.S. immigration laws. Authorities have said the University of Iowa student was abducted while she was out for an evening run in Brooklyn, Iowa, on July 18. The man charged in her death, 24-year-old , a Mexican farmworker who is suspected of being in the U.S. illegally.

Omarosa memoir sells 34,000 copies during its first week

NEW YORK (AP) --- Omarosa Manigault Newman's "Unhinged" had a strong first week of sales, although it seems unlikely to match the success of Donald Trump tell-alls such as "Fire and Fury" and "A Higher Loyalty". "Unhinged" sold 34,000 copies, NPD BookScan reported Thursday. BookScan tracks around 85 percent of the print market. Newman, the former White House aide and "Apprentice" star, wrote that she became disillusioned with Trump and decided he was a racist. The president responded by calling her a "dog." "Unhinged" finished third last week in overall sales, behind Rachel Hollis' lifestyle guide "Girl, Wash Your Face" and Kevin Kwan's "Crazy Rich Asians", the basis for the hi...Keep on reading: Omarosa memoir sells 34,000 copies during its first week.....»»

Employee fired after kicking out young black girls from gift shop

An employee of the Jenkinson's Aquarium boardwalk gift shop in New Jersey has been terminated after recently racially-profiling and kicking out a group of young black girls from the shop. Attiyya Barrett, camp leader of a summer camp program, took to her Facebook account last Aug. 10 to share about the incident. In her post, she narrated how her "girls" went inside the gift shop and were reduced to tears after being discriminated by the employee. "So. My girls went inside the gift shop @jenkinsonaquarium and we were racially profiled and discriminated against!" wrote Barrett.

In wake of critical book, Trump calls ex-staffer ‘a lowlife’

BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey --- President Donald Trump has one word to describe former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman: "Lowlife." Manigault Newman claims in an upcoming book, "Unhinged," that Trump used racial slurs on the set of his reality show "The Apprentice." She also says she later concluded that he is a racist and a bigot. On Saturday, reporters asked Trump during an event at his golf club in New Jersey if he felt betrayed by Manigault Newman. He responded: "Lowlife. She's a lowlife." Manigault Newman was a contestant on Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show and later served as a senior adviser to the president.

Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb apologizes for offensive tweets

By George Henry, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb apologized Sunday for racist, homophobic and sexist tweets he sent as a teenager, calling them "some stupid stuff." "I definitely regret it, for sure," he said. The 25-year-old Newcomb spoke less than an hour after nearly pitching a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The tweets were sent in 2011 and 2012. "I just wanted to apologize for any insensitive material," Newcomb said. "It was a long time ago, six or seven years ago, saying some stupid stuff with friends." "I know I've grown a lot since then. I didn't mean anything by it. It was just something stupid I did a long time ago and I didn't mean anything by it, for sure," he said. Major League Baseball dealt with a similar situation this month involving Milwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader on the night he pitched in the All-Star Game. "Such inappropriate comments have no place in our game. We are aware of this serious issue, Billy Bean will meet with Mr. Newcomb this week, and we will identify an appropriate course of diversity training for him in the Atlanta community," MLB said in a statement. Bean is MLB's vice president for social responsibility and inclusion. He is a former big league outfielder and openly gay. Hader apologized after offensive tweets sent when he was a teen came to light on July 17. The next day, MLB said the 24-year-old Hader will be required to go through sensitivity training and participate in diversity and inclusion initiatives. Hader also met with Bean. "We are aware of the tweets that surfaced after today's game and have spoken to Sean, who is incredibly remorseful," the Braves said in a statement posted on Twitter. "Regardless of how long ago he posted them, he is aware of the insensitivity and is taking full responsibility." "We find the tweets hurtful and incredibly disappointing and even though he was 18 or 19 years old when posted, it doesn't make them any less tolerable. We will work together with Sean towards mending the wounds created in our community," the team said. Atlanta's clubhouse had already closed to the media after he answered questions about his career-best moment, a 4-1 victory in which he came within one strike of pitching a no-hitter. Chris Taylor broke up the bid with two out single in the ninth inning. Newcomb said he had forgotten about the tweets until he picked up his phone postgame and saw mentions of the posts. The Braves reopened the locker room about 30 minutes later — Newcomb said it was his idea for a team official to bring reporters back downstairs so he could address the subject. "This is something obviously that can't be happening," he said. "I feel bad about it. I don't mean to offend anybody. It was six, seven years ago. I didn't mean anything by it and I definitely regret it, for sure." Newcomb said he doesn't think the tweets will cause fallout among current teammates. "No, I don't think so," he said. "I think people that know me know that's not the kind of person I am. It's been a long time since then and at the same time I didn't mean anything by it.".....»»

Roseanne Barr will appear on TV for first time since firing

LOS ANGELES (AP) --- Roseanne Barr will appear on television for the first time since she was fired from ABC and her namesake show was canceled. Barr will be a guest on the Fox News show "Hannity" on Thursday at 9 p.m. EDT. ABC canceled its successful reboot of "Roseanne" in May following the star's racist tweet likening former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and a "Planet of the Apes" actor. Barr recorded a podcast interview last month in which she said she feels remorse about the tweet. During the live interview Thursday, she's expected to discuss the tweet as well as President Donald Trump.

FIBA: Goulding s racist tweet is fake

MANILA, Philippines --- There's more to the Gilas-Boomers brawl for sure. However, fake news have no place in the coverage of this story. In the aftermath of the unfortunate incident Monday, a Twitter screenshot from Australia's Chris Goulding started floating around online. Goulding allegedly said, "Philippino Monkeys!!! Trash team. Trash crowd. Trash Federation. Trash country." Goulding of course, was the one RR Pogoy knocked down to the floor with the shove. Almost immediately after that, Australia's Daniel Kickert knocked down Pogoy. And then the brawl went out of hand. The "deleted tweet" obviously got the ire of Pinoys but in a report by Reuben Terrado of Spin, Basketball Australia has denied the validity of the tweet. It's fake. "I can categorically state that tweet is not real and is 100 percent photoshopped," Basketball Australia media manager Grant Richardson said in an email via Spin. The Boomers declined media interviews Monday night after the game and the team reportedly left the country Tuesday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
