NBA Star's Story Of Racial Profiling At A Jewelry Store Will Make Your Heart Sink

no title

It's hard to believe these things still go on in America in 2015.

John Henson, a star center for the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks, recounted his humiliating experience with racial discrimination on Monday.

Earlier that day — during regular, morning business hours, as he notes — Henson had gone to Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers, a high-end jewelry store in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, to look at a watch.

Henson — who just signed a $45 million contract with the Bucks — pulled up to the store, walked up to the door, and found the store's employees had remotely locked it before he could enter.

From there, when he knocked, the employees ran into a back room, evidently concerned about Henson entering the jewelry store.

The basketball star detailed the entire unfortunate incident in an Instagram post:

Tarantino unchained.

Quentin Tarantino has come under quite a bit of fire for his movies in the past, but most recently for the constant use of the N-word in Django Unchained.

But not to stop there, right after the film's premiere he found another himself wrapped up in another controversy when people weren't too happy that he attempted to talk censorship at the Golden Globes and dropped the word again.

Confederate Flag Wavers Face Serious Anti-Gang Charges After Allegedly Harassing A Child's Birthday Party

no title

This is a creative and important way to handle a scary incident!

A group of white men in Georgia allegedly harassed a group of black partygoers back in July, by driving pickup trucks up to the party, displaying weapons and Confederate Flags, and yelling racial slurs.

Now, in an interesting turn of events, that group of Confederate Flag-friendly white men — who, by the way, was interrupting a child's birthday party — was just indicted by Georgia authorities as a street gang.

Aside from the satisfying aspect of that indictment, the street gang charge would actually triple the penalties under Georgia's anti-gang statutes in addition to penalties for making terroristic threats.

As is reported now, the group gang was pretty intent on causing mayhem that fateful day back in July:

Sarah Palin Says If You Want To Live In America, 'Let's Speak American'

no title

Oh, Sarah Palin.

The former half-term governor of Alaska went on CNN Sunday morning and discussed presidential candidate Jeb Bush's bilingual campaigning and speaking Spanish during his run.

Speaking to CNN's Jake Tapper, Sarah ranted about Jeb and eventually randomly got caught on to immigrants in general, saying:

"I think we can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America, (a) you'd better be here legally or you're out of here, (b) when you're here, let's speak American. Let's speak English, and that's a kind of a unifying aspect of the nation is the language that is understood by all."

Is American a language?? (No.) Is American English the United States' official language? (No.) Does the United States even have an official language?? (No.)

Basically, Sarah, STOP! Spanish is a very common language in this country, and it's going to continue to be a common language in this country — if anything, we should be encouraging all of our children to be bilingual!!

Either way… sounds like Sarah and Donald Trump would be a great fit together, eh??

What do U think — should immigrants speak 'American' in this country??

Say WHAT?! Elisabeth Hasselbeck Thinks The Black Lives Matter Movement Should Be Labeled As A 'Hate Group'!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck needs to stop.

There are some people who should know when to keep their mouths shut, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck is one of those people.

On this morning's episode of Fox & Friends, the Fox News star discussed Texas Deputy Darren H. Goforth, an officer who was shot and killed while he was pumping gas last Friday.

Elisabeth and her co-host used this as an opportunity to draw connections to the Black Lives Matter movement and label it as a "radical group" calling for violence against police.
