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.

Colbert names Trump’s siege on DC the ‘Tinyman Square’ incident

Published

It wasn't quite Tiananmen Square, where a still-unknown number of Chinese protesters were murdered by the government in 1989, but it was the closest thing President Donald Trump managed to score this week.

After watching the footage of the military tear gas, beat and shoot at protesters so Trump could march from the presidential bunker to St. John's Church for the cameras.

"It was like Tiananmen Square," Colbert deemed. "Except, in Trump's case, Tinyman Square."

Trump claimed on "The Fox & Friends" that no one was tear-gassed, so it's unclear what was stinging people's eyes and making them cough, choke and tear up. The Park Police released a statement saying it wasn't tear gas. While the moment was captured on video from dozens of different camera angles, one protester actually grabbed a canister of Oleoresins Capiscum, or "OC," the gas that was used.

Vladimir Putin must love watching the US fall apart: columnist

Published

on

New Yorker columnist Susan Glasser made the astute observation that if Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to destabilize the United States with the election of President Donald Trump, he's clearly achieved his objective.

It was reported in March that Russian intelligence services are working to incite violence using white supremacist groups to try and sow racial chaos in the United States ahead of the November election.

Conservative columnist links all Republicans to the attack on Lafayette Square

Published

on

Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump decided to walk across Lafayette Square for a photo-op. To get there, however, it took an outright battle with mounted park police, police covered in body armor and rattled Secret Service members who had just rushed the president to the bunker several nights before. Armed with semi-automatic weapons and military gear, they staged a siege on Lafayette Square against unarmed hippies, woke whites and people of color, again, forced to fight for justice.

Writing for the Washington Post Wednesday, conservative columnist Max Boot attacked Attorney General Bill Barr, who accepted responsibility for demanding that demonstrators be tear-gassed, beaten and shot with rubber bullets. Like Bull Conor ordering fire hoses on students marching in Birmingham, Alabama, Barr's attack on Lafayette Square for a photo-op proved he is willing to do what it takes to stroke the fractured ego of a president forced to cower in a bunker.
