Two black high school soccer players in Sandy, Utah were assaulted with racial slurs during a game, reports News-4-Utah.
“I didn’t know what to do. I was so shocked. I was so confused,” said Emmie Woodward, Sky View High School senior, who was adopted by her white parents when she was seven. Her sister Darcy was adopted at birth.
“Skin color has never mattered. It’s never been anything that I’ve focused on,” said Darcy.
“It was probably 10 minutes into the first half when I heard a guy say, ‘Black lives don’t matter,'” said Emmie. “I was so hurt because I never thought people would say something like that to me.”
“Nice shot, n****,'” Darcy says she heard from the stands.
Their parents are furious that no one intervened to stop the heckling.
“There are two aspects to this whole thing. One is with what the students were doing. But the second is what the adults were NOT doing,” said Kate. “This is bullying. This is abuse and parents need to step up and teach their kids that this is not acceptable in a high school situation or a sports situation.”
It’s not clear what motivated the hecklers to spew racist slurs at the two high school girls. The school has said they are launching an investigation.
‘I’m out’: Former GOP county chair says he wouldn’t vote for Trump if he literally walked on water
A soybean farmer told CNBC on Monday that he is so disgusted with the White House trade policy that he wouldn't vote for Donald Trump again if the president literally walked on water.
Farmer Christopher Gibbs, a former Republican county chairman in Ohio, explained on CNBC's Power Lunch program that he does not trust Trump's promises of a trade deal "until the soybeans are on the boat."
"I hate to be a downer on all this but somebody has to be practical," he remarked.
‘Utterly ridiculous’: Panel rips Andrea Mitchell after she claims ‘real equivalency’ between Trumps and Bidens
An MSNBC panel helped host Andrea Mitchell put things in perspective after she opined on the "swampiness" of Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden recently became a public target of conservatives after it was revealed that President Donald Trump was pressing Ukraine to investigate him and his father. Trump critics contend that it's laughable to investigate the Bidens when Trump's family appears far more corrupt.
"There’s no question that there is a swampiness about Hunter Biden’s work given his lack of qualifications for a lot of this stuff," Mitchell said during her Monday MSNBC program. "But there's a real equivalency here because Eric and Donald Trump Jr. are involved in businesses around the world."
Black family arrested for ‘loitering’ on their own front lawn
On October 1, a black family was standing in the front yard of their home, when police approached. They were arrested for loitering even though they were on their own property, reports KYW news.
Loitering offenses have historically been used as a way to purge people seen as undesirable, such as the homeless, from public spaces.
Now, the family is demanding answers from the Chester Township Police Department in Pennsylvania.
"It's a terrifying thing. It makes me feel as though the police can knock down your door, and drag you out of your home at anytime," Rachel Briggs told KYW. "This is an incident that made me feel like I'm a prisoner in my own home," she added. Her sons and nephew were dragged off to jail, where they spent the night while the family scrambled to make their bail.
