Twitter Imagines How The Trump White House Will Celebrate Black History Month
Huffington Post - 19 days
February 1 marks the start of Black History Month, and there’s not a lot of hope out there that President Donald Trump will offer much in the way of celebration.  Last week, a White House statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day failed to mention the 6 million Jews who were killed in the genocide. And when members of the public became upset, press secretary Sean Spicer called their complaints “pathetic.”  That had Twitter users wondering just what the Trump administration had planned for Black History Month.  Here are some of their predictions:  Tomorrow, the Trump White House celebrates Black History Month. pic.twitter.com/2o54n4K3fd — Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) January 31, 2017 Happy Black History Month! As the White House would say, don't forget about all the brave caucasians that sacrificed so much to get us here. — Sam Grittner (@SamGrittner) February 1, 2017 Trump's gonna be in office so I guess we gon be celebrating All History Mo ...

Best new artist: Some celebrities wrote their first checks to candidates in 2016
Huffington Post - about 1 month

Nine years later Baldwin played Trump on Saturday Night Live -- but he contributed to no presidential candidates. (AP Photo/Matt Sayles) BY: Andrew Mayersohn The Hollywood liberal has been a stock figure in American politics for decades. Conservative politicians have long denounced or mocked the alleged political influence of musicians, TV stars, and Golden Globe recipients. While the entertainment industry does indeed lean well to the left, though, most of that money comes from producers and media magnates, not the people you see on screen. The only household names in the entertainment industry to make our list of top 100 donors in 2016 were Jeffrey Katzenberg of Dreamworks and the conservative McMahons of the WWE (and, now, the Small Business Administration). In terms of the "talent," though, the same handful of politically aware celeb ...

Lee Daniels Made 'Star' For 'White People To Feel Good About Being White'
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Lee Daniels believes casting a white woman as the main character in his new series, “Star,” is going to help ease the racial tensions in America.  In an interview with EBONY published Wednesday, Lee said he wants to “explore race in a way that we haven’t seen it before on a network series” with the new Fox show. To achieve that, Daniels cast actress Jude Demorest to play the titular character, Star, a young woman who embarks upon a music career after a tough life in foster care. The series also stars Queen Latifah, Lenny Kravitz, and Naomi Campbell.  “We are in a very dangerous state right now in our country and I wanted white people to feel good about being white because right now, there’s a lot of hatred going on,” Daniels told EBONY. The director and “Empire” creator said that he believes the show will will open up frank conversation about race. “I think we’ve gotten too politically correct with primetime,” Daniels added. “We’re just not in your face anymore.

Racist Trump Fan Arrested With Stockpile Of Pipe Bombs After Threatening Obama
Huffington Post - 10 months
WASHINGTON -- A fanatical Donald Trump supporter, who was arrested by the FBI in Oregon this week after repeatedly threatening to kill President Barack Obama and federal agents, had multiple pipe bombs in his home, authorities alleged in court on Friday. John Martin Roos, a 61-year-old from Oregon, has been charged with communication of a threat in interstate commerce, and additional charges are likely forthcoming. Roos first came onto the federal government's radar after a "concerned citizen" brought Roos' Facebook and Twitter postings to the FBI's attention in February, according to an affidavit from Special Agent Jeffrey Gray. (Excerpts, below, from Roos' postings contain explicit language.) In one Jan. 31 Facebook post cited by the FBI, Roos referred to agents as "pussies" and wrote he would "snipe them with hunting rifles everywhere." (Despite his threats to kill members of law enforcement, he also complained on Facebook earlier this month about the "liberal media ... slam ...
