Black hockey fan has banana thrown at him by player at college game

Published

on

A black hockey fan had a banana thrown at him during a game—apparently by a player.

Tyrell Pearce was assaulted while watching a game at the University of Sheffield, an incident first reported by The Tab. The university recently had a scandal after it was revealed that two students exchanged racist messages in a class chatroom. The matter is being investigated by the university and the police.

Pearce said he and other people in the arena were exchanging friendly banter about the game and then he felt something hit the back of his head. It was a banana.

“I shouted ‘who threw the banana?’ very angrily, as this is the most racially abused I have been in my entire life,” he said. “Not a word was said, a girl in the stand had told me it was one of the guys in a shirt and tie (the hockey team).”

Pearce walked over and confronted the hockey team, asking who threw the banana. They all remained silent.

“Not a single peep out of any of them and not a ounce of eye contact either. I knew it was them,” he said.

Pearce says other witnesses have since confirmed the allegation. The security guards told him they could not do anything because there were no security cameras.

Published

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Will Hurd becomes first GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ attacks on Dems

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
