It’d be great if racism didn’t exist. If you didn’t have to give your kid an explanation for why a person clutched a bag as a black man walked by. If black families didn’t have to hold multiple versions of “the talk” in hopes that their child doesn’t become the next Michael Brown or George Floyd. But that’s not our current reality, nor has it been across our nation’s entire history.As psychologist Beverly Tatum puts it, anti-blackness is a smog, one we’re breathing in everywhere, knowingly or not.“Cultural racism — the cultural images and messages that affirm the assumed superiority of Whites ...
The life of one man has changed a lot after he was arrested for his actions at the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. electoral process at the Capitol. In fact, according to one court filing, his life seems like it's over.
He's lost clients and investment partnerships, he was banned from working at Lyft and from Airbnb, he has endured "harassment" from the internet, but he's being mocked the most for complaining that he lost his TSA-precheck pass due to the arrest.
It's unclear how many Lyft drivers have been banned but at least one email about it has been emailed and posted on the site Parler.

TSA makes it clear on their website that Americans can be removed or suspended from the service "if you commit certain violations of federal security regulations, such as refusal to wear a mask in U.S. transportation systems covered by the January 31, 2021 Security Directive and subsequent amendments, assault, threat, intimidation, or interference with flight crew, physical or sexual assault or threat of physical or sexual assault of any individual on an aircraft, interference with security operations, access control violations, providing false or fraudulent documents, making a bomb threat, or bringing a firearm, explosive, or other prohibited item to an airport or onboard an aircraft, you are denied expedited screening for a period of time."
He was ridiculed heavily for the complaint.

Heavy.com has researched Merrill Lynch wealth manager James Iannazzo after he went after shop employees - throwing a smoothie at them and made statements about one staffer's immigration status.
"He was arrested and charged with second-degree intimidation based on bigotry or bias, second-degree breach of peace and first-degree criminal trespass after the Saturday, January 22, 2022, incident," the report explained.
It all happened because the man didn't tell the staff that there was a peanut allergy, he only said "no peanut butter." But for those with severe allergies, using a spoon or pitcher that touched peanut butter can be deadly. Typically when food service workers are told that there is a severe allergy, additional measures are taken.
The videos show Iannazzo demanding to speak to the person who made the drink, but they couldn't tell him which did.
"Stupid f*cking ignorant high school kids," he ranted. He was then asked to leave after demanding to speak to a manager. They told him that he could call the corporation to file a formal complaint. Iannazzo called the employee a “f*cking b*tch."
Heavy revealed that staff had to block the door because Iannazzo tried to get behind the counter to the workers.
“There was one girl, she was 16. Literally, it was like her second day,” the TikTok video explains. “She was in the back, already called the police.” She and another co-worker were forced to use their bodies to block the door because “before I started recording he tried to get in multiple times.”
No assault charges have been filed yet because to do, so the employees would have to file a report, police explained.

WISN host Adrienne Pederson grilled Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) about his toxic brand and his low approval ratings.
In an interview on Sunday, Pederson asked Johnson how he planned to win re-election with an approval rating of 35%.
"You will have to get some moderates to vote for you," the host noted, "people who really aren't part of your base. How will you do that as someone who has become a very polarizing figure in politics?"
"First of all, I'm not a polarizing figure," Johnson shot back. "It's just that people in the legacy media call me one and all of the sudden, you become one. I'm not a polarizing figure at all. I'm just trying to convey the truth. I've done a really good job as Wisconsin's United States senator."
"How do you get that 35% approval rating up?" Pederson pressed.
"It's not surprising having survived years' worth of attacks from the legacy media, which again is pretty much the communications apparatus for the Democrat [sic] Party," Johnson replied. "Maybe my poll numbers have slipped."
"So you blame your poll numbers on the media," the host observed.
Johnson then suggested that the poll numbers were "wildly off."
