Mexican-hating white man throws a tantrum over skateboarding: ‘I’m a racist, at least I’m something!’

Published

on

A video captured an older white man yelling racial slurs at a group of teenage boys who were skating in a corporate building parking lot in San Pedro, California, reported Fox 11 news.

The man came out of his rented office space, and told the group of boys to stop skating in the area. However, the boys claim that they skate there every Wednesday, so they saw no reason to leave.

The white man then begins to scream at one of the boys by saying that he has “authority” over him. At this point he starts to yell racial slurs.

“You Mexican piece of sh*t,” the man said.

“And you’re just a piece of sh*t,” the young boy responds.

“I’m a racist, at least I’m something!” the man yells back. “All you are is a little coward!”

The video was posted on Facebook by Willie Galaz, a father to one of the boy’s in the group.

“There was another way he could’ve come up to the kids and told them to leave,” Galaz said.

Galaz said the man reacted the way he did to the kids because of their race.

“What gave me the strength to post the video was the kid who was keeping his composure in that situation where he had a grown man yelling in his face,” Galaz said. “I guess he just looked around and was looking at the kid and started to judge the kid because he was Mexican, and I guess that’s the only thing he had at that time to put him down.”

The incident inspired Galaz to create a safe space for street skaters. He started an online fundraising campaign to help gain support for an event geared towards giving teens a place to skate without having to worry about being harassed.

There’s no respite from Trump’s vindictiveness and foolishness

Published

on

As we know, even in the midst of a national emergency, Donald Trump could find time and bandwidth to continue his retribution campaign.

He dismissed Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence agencies, for doing “a terrible job,” satisfying his own thirst for vengeance for anyone who actually adhered to law and practice over blind loyalty to Trump himself. Indeed, asked about it the next day, Trump underscored his action by saying, Atkinson “was no Trump supporter, that I can tell you.”

It was an act that we once would have labeled corruption, by Democrats and Republicans – that is using the office for personal purposes – if Congress and too many Americans had not since become inured by so many like instances.

This is how Taiwan and South Korea bucked the global lockdown trend

Published

on

As the coronavirus pandemic sparks global lockdowns, life has continued comparatively unhindered in places like Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong after their governments and citizens took decisive early action against the unfolding crisis.

At first glance Taiwan looks like an ideal candidate for the coronavirus. The island of 23 million lies just 180 kilometres (110 miles) off mainland China.

Yet nearly 100 days in, Taiwan has just 376 confirmed cases and five fatalities while restaurants, bars, schools, universities and offices remain open.

The government of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose deputy is an epidemiologist, made tough decisions while the crisis was nascent to stave off the kind of pain now convulsing much of the rest of the world.

Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), who is himself dealing with a bout of COVID-19, chastised the Wisconsin GOP for doing everything in their power to block the state elections from being moved — and forcing many voters to stand in line and risk exposure to the virus to cast their ballot.

"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
