University of Maryland professor Jason Nichols received a disgusting 8-minute racist rant from a caller after he appeared on Fox News earlier this week.
Nichols appeared on Tucker Carlson’s nightly program to discuss Columbus Day and to explain to the Fox News audience why Christopher Columbus is maybe not the best person to celebrate.
Fellow UM professor Rashawn Ray shared video of Nichols playing back the message on his phone, which Nichols broadcast on Facebook Live.
“This message is for Jason Nicholas [sic], I’ve been listening to him on Fox,” said the caller, a woman. “You know, this f*cking n**ger, you n**gers are not gonna be satisfied until you change every f*cking piece of sh*t holiday to ‘N**ger Day.’ Okay, you can have it. Let’s change Martin Luther King N**ger Day, Christmas N**ger Day, Columbus N**ger Day.”
She went on, “He’s talking about Columbus killing 200,000 people, what about the camel n**gers that got the n**ger blood in them, the terrorists, the f*cking Syrian Muslim piece of sh*t n**ger terrorists…”
The caller continued in that vein for eight full minutes as Nichols looked silently at the camera and occasionally shook his head.

Inside Purdue Pharma’s media playbook: How it planted the opioid ‘anti-story’

In 2004, Purdue Pharma was facing a threat to sales of its blockbuster opioid painkiller OxyContin, which were approaching $2 billion a year. With abuse of the drug on the rise, prosecutors were bringing criminal charges against some doctors for prescribing massive amounts of OxyContin.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe explains how Republicans botched Trump’s impeachment defense from Day One
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said the polling after the first week of public impeachment hearings offered bad news to President Donald Trump.
About 58 percent of Americans are following the hearings very closely or somewhat closely, and 60 percent of those people believe Trump should be impeached and removed from office, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.
Nearly one in three Americans have already made up their minds on impeachment, but about 30 percent say they could be swayed by new revelations about Trump's scheme to pressure Ukraine into announcing an investigation of Joe Biden.
Trump rails against another woman impeachment witness
“Tell Jennifer Williams, whoever that is, to read BOTH transcripts of the presidential calls, & see the just released ststement [sic] from Ukraine,” Trump tweeted. “Then she should meet with the other Never Trumpers, who I don’t know & mostly never even heard of, & work out a better presidential attack!”
