Visiting class counselor condemns majority-white school for locking black kids in a cage and spitting on them

Published

A man who was said be a counselor at Denby High School in Detroit excoriated officials and parents from another high school after he said that black children were locked in a “cage” and spit on.

The incident reportedly occurred when Denby football players faced off against Almont in Walled Lake on Saturday.

After referees called off the last three minutes of the game due to roughness, additional law enforcement officers were reportedly called to the school to deal with a fight.

Denby counselor Bob Burg, who said he was in attendance, recounted the incident on Facebook.

“Kids were spit on!” he wrote. “Pelted with garbage and one of our young men was punched in the face by an Almont parent! After we were able to get our kids in a safe area they locked us all in a caged area in the corner of the field, when we just wanted to get the kids safely on our bus.”

Burg continued: “Almont parents were spitting on our kids! And throwing things! Social media jumped out to bad-mouth our kids because we are a black school. No one protected our kids! Our great principal was spit on. We were pushed and verbally abused by two of the officers.”

According to Burg, one of the black students “was called a monkey by one of the officers.” He said that the officers aimed Mace canisters at the children.

Media reports said that no arrests were made at the game.

As the United States Senate conducted an impeachment trial for the commander-in-chief, Tannehill posted an extended Twitter thread examining the situation in America from her perspective as a researcher studying the conditions that lead to genocide.

Here is what she wrote:

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
