Jovan Wilson, 15, was at home with his uncle and three siblings when two teenagers — reportedly a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl — entered the home and argued with the teenager about the shoes.

At that point, the other boy allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Wilson in the head, according to multiple reports — including those from Davis himself, who spoke to the media after the incident.

Rep. Davis said:

This is insane.

This guy. Wow.

Rick Tyler is coming under fire — as he should be — for posting campaign signs that say "Make America White Again."

Naturally, people are pissed that the candidate for Tennessee's 3rd congressional district seat would proudly display such a racist billboard during his campaign.

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikBarack Obama

POTUS can't even with these people…

Ever since Antonin Scalia's death over the weekend, one of the most talked about political issues has been who will replace him on the Supreme Court.

Obviously, our heavily Republican Congress was quick to point out that they'll block any pick that President Barack Obama makes… except for the fact that that kind of goes against the Constitution.

Who keeps inviting him to things?

Great work, California!

The Golden State has become the first in the nation to completely ban the use of 'Redskins' as a mascot for any public school sports team, with a bill signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown (pictured above) on Sunday.

The ban comes in direct relation to the ongoing controversy surrounding the NFL's Washington Redskins, and that team's refusal to change their mascot, which Native American advocacy groups and allies have continually said is racist and cruel.

With California's ban, the state joins communities — like Houston, Texas and Madison, Wisconsin — in ridding themselves of the racially insensitive term in the public realm surrounding sports and mascots.

California's bill, Assembly Bill 30, also known as the California Racial Mascots Act, prohibits public schools from using 'Redskins' for athletic mascots or nicknames beginning on January 1, 2017.

Governor Brown said of the bill, and other legal moves on racial issues:
