WATCH: White Georgia man hurls racial slurs at black teacher in terrifying road rage incident

Published

on

A white man in Georgia was arrested after he was caught on camera going off on a profane, racist tirade against a black teacher in a shopping center parking lot.

In the video, which was posted on Facebook by teacher Terrence Stover last week, a man whom police later identified as 49-year-old Eric DeKeyser was seen hurling angry invective at Stover.

The video begins with Stover accusing DeKeyser of “calling me a n*gger for no reason.” DeKeyser responds by saying, “Yes, because I knew it would get a f*cking rise out of you, because you’re acting like one!”

In his Facebook post about the incident, Stover said that he believed DeKeyser was carrying a handgun in his pocket — and that he was trying to bait Stover into physically attacking him so he could then shoot him and get away with it thanks to Georgia’s “stand your ground laws.”

“I did not take the bait,” Stover said. “I was lucky that people in the shopping center saw what was happening… However, this situation could easily have gone another way and I am blessed that it did not.”

According to local news station WSBTV, police arrived on the scene, reviewed the video taken by Stover, and arrested DeKeyser for disorderly conduct.

A three-time Louisiana governor, Long mastered the art of political ridicule seven decades ago by weaponizing nicknames. The hilarious names Long pinned on his rivals, and the rollicking stories he told about them, riveted audiences bored by puffed-up rhetoric.

While Long’s stunts may be remembered as silly hijinks, there was a sly, often deadly serious, purpose to his technique. He used it to get voters to laugh at his foes and to put them on the defensive––a place politicians never want to be. Tucked within Long’s jests were razor-sharp attacks aimed at exploiting opposition weaknesses––hidden swords inside a pea-patch cloak.

The work done at the Charlotte facility will be outsourced to a firm in Arkansas, according to the report.

Amazon, Google and Facebook warrant antitrust scrutiny for many reasons – not just because they’re large

Published

on

There’s a growing chorus of U.S. politicians, antitrust scholars and consumer watchdogs calling for stricter antitrust treatment of Amazon, Google, Facebook and other tech giants. Some even say they should be broken up.

Most recently, U.S. lawmakers launched a sweeping review to determine if these companies have become so big and powerful that they are stifling competition and harming consumers, while federal regulators are also gearing up to take action.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
