no title

Objection!

America suffered yet another instance of race inequality this week when Terence Crutcher was shot dead by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma — despite being completely innocent of any crime.

The unarmed black man was killed while simply trying to fix his car… but one college professor seems to think Terence's protesters are actually the evil ones in all this.

University of Tennessee Knoxville law professor Glenn Reynolds found himself without a job Twitter for a few hours on Wednesday after an offensive tweet of his got his account suspended.

While reacting to a news story about protesters blocking the I-277 in Charlotte, Glenn decided to join in on the conversation, saying:

Well after the post, Gillan received quite a bit of backlash online for wearing what some deemed as a revealing, skimpy, and non-functional outfit — something pretty backward and sexist for a movie coming out in 2017!

But the former Doctor Who star has defended herself as she tweeted out:

The demonstrations have become increasingly chaotic and violent, with people throwing objects and damaging property. In turn, law enforcement officials are wearing riot gear and are spraying angry protestors with tear gas.

Former NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Would Rather See Colin Kaepernick Protest The National Anthem Than 'Put His Hands Up & Get Murdered'

Marshawn Lynch just made a very powerful point in support of Colin Kaepernick.

In the wake of Tulsa police fatally shooting unarmed Terence Crutcher, the Seattle Seahawks alum just perfectly defended the quarterback's decision to peacefully protest the National Anthem.

On Tuesday, the retired NFL star joined Conan O'Brien on his late-night show to literally stand up for the San Francisco 49ers player, poignantly saying:

"With what's going on, I'd really rather see him take a knee, than stand up, put his hands up, and get murdered."

So incredibly well-said, while tragically highlighting the serious police profiling problem throughout our country.

The 30-year-old hopes Colin's movement causes a societal shift across the nation, which will make everyone aware of the racism that still exists, and ultimately end it, adding:

"My take on it is, sh*t's gotta start somewhere. And if that was the starting point, I just hope people open up their eyes to see that there's really a problem going on, and something needs to be done for it to stop."

The ex-running back also called out everyone against the athlete's harmless display:

"And, I mean, if you're really not racist, then you won't see what he's doing as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have."

Colin Kaepernick Says Tulsa Police Officer Should Be In Prison For Killing Terence Crutcher Amidst Continued Death Threats

Filed under: ZportzR.I.P.Sad SadViolenceFootballNFLScary!Viral: NewsControversySocial Issues

When will enough be enough?

Colin Kaepernick wasn't the least bit surprised about the backlash he got over his national anthem protest… and sadly, that included receiving death threats.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback recently revealed he's been targeted by "couple different avenues" since he started sitting, then kneeling, during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice and police brutality in the country.

Speaking to the San Francisco Chronicle on Tuesday, the athlete admitted that he's yet to alert team officials to the threats, explaining:

"To me, if something like that were to happen, you've proved my point. And it will be loud and clear for everyone why it happened. And that would move this movement forward at a greater speed than what it is even now."

We sure hope it doesn't come to that… but he has a point!

Though it's scary that the 28-year-old has to worry about death threats, we were reminded why he's protesting when yet another unarmed black man was shot and killed by an officer in Oklahoma earlier this week.

On top of being devastated by Terence Crutcher's murder, Kaepernick took further issue with the fact that Tulsa Police didn't even treat him like a human being, telling press:

Emma Watson Honors Women Everywhere With A Passionate Speech On Gender Equality & Campus Safety!

no title

Emma Watson is such an inspiration!

On Tuesday, Emma took to the 71st Annual United Nations General Assembly in New York to deliver a speech on gender equality and campus safety. The passionate message was inspired by the UN Women's gender equality HeForShe campaign, an initiative Ms. Watson became the ambassador of two years ago.

In the actress' moving address, she highlighted the need for women's safety on college campuses to become a "right" rather than a privilege." The message couldn't have come at a better time considering campus rape has become all too common despite the social gains women have made over the years.

The feminist went on to argue:

"The experience must make it clear that the safety of women, minorities, and anyone who may be vulnerable is a right, and not a privilege."

Well said, girl! Someone needs to forward over this speech to the judge who gave Brock Turner a slap on the wrist for his horrific assault!

In addition to better protection against assault, E.W. urged colleges to level the playing field for its female attendees:
