Sports journalist Bomani Jones got Twitter buzzing on Thursday after he appeared on ESPN wearing a shirt with the word “Caucasians” in the style of the Cleveland Indians logo.
“I don’t blame Bomani for being a disgrace, I blame @espn for allowing it,” a viewer named Jimmie wrote. “@bomani_jones who hurt you? I’m serious, I don’t want ppl in pain.”
Many expressed support for the T-shirt, and others just wanted to know where they could get one.

Jones later explained to ESPN host Molly Qerim that he chose the shirt “because it was clean.”
“And the other thing is I think it’s funny,” he said. “It’s just like the Cleveland Indians shirt, exactly the same as the Cleveland Indians shirt with just one small change. That’s it.”
“The reason they won’t get rid of Chief Wahoo — it’s completely indefensible — is because they can still sell stuff with it,” Jones added. “They can say they’re going to deemphasize it, but they’re not going to set money on fire.”
“If you’re quiet about the Indians and now you’ve got something to say about my shirt, I think it’s time for introspection.”

Amy Klobuchar shredded for trying to relate to union audience by saying her ‘name in Spanish class was Elena’
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) met with Culinary Union members in Las Vegas, Nevada Tuesday night during the CNN town hall for her opponents. The Culinary Union is made up of the over 60,000 hotel housekeepers, bartenders, restaurant and casino workers, and others who make up the backbone of the entire city. Many members are Spanish-speaking and people of color, yet it was still puzzling why Klobuchar began her speech with a bizarre anecdote.
According to Culinary members and reporters present, she began by saying, "My name is Amy, but when I was in fourth grade Spanish they gave me the name Elena."
Maddow reports on the ‘doomsday scenario’ that impacted America like a ‘domestic nuclear bomb’
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday reported on the "rule of law emergency" as Attorney General Bill Barr uses the Department of Justice as a "weapon" to benefit Donald Trump.
Maddow reported on all of the key investigations being run by the Southern District of New York (SDNY), which is known as the Sovereign District of New York for its independence from DOJ headquarters.
"They are investigating the Trump inaugural committee, SDNY is investigating the Trumps' family business, SDNY is investigating criminal behavior of President Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani," Maddow noted. "SDNY put Michael Cohen in prison for hush money paid by the president's campaign before the 2016 election."
Trump’s attempt to govern as a ‘king’ is disillusioning an entire generation of young lawyers: Professor
President Donald Trump's partisan acquittal from impeachment, attacks on the Justice Department, and efforts to shield or pardon criminals and corrupt politicians is already taking its toll.
On MSNBC Tuesday, New York University Law professor Melissa Murray said that the president's behavior is coloring her own law students' view of the world, and of their future career.
"We often learn from you, the big picture of what you tell your students," said host Ari Melber. "For people watching this, if this evidence lines up this way, this looks like it is bad and getting worse. What do you say to them?"
