Nets guard Jeremy Lin ´all
good´ with Kenyon Martin after
former NBA star accused him of
getting dreadlocks ´to be black´

Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin said Thursday he was grateful to former Nets star Kenyon Martin for a stinging racially overtoned rebuke about his new dreadlocks hairstyle. Lin, who outlined the reasons for wearing dreadlocks in a Players Tribune website essay on Tuesday, was called out for his choice in an Instagram posting by Martin, the top pick of the 2000 NBA Draft who helped the Nets twice reach the NBA Finals. (Snip) ´You want to be black. We get it. But the last name is "Lin."´ After receiving negative feedback and comments, Martin took to Instagram again to explain

Comments:
Borderline illiterate black man with Chinese tattoos, and who made a fortune playing a sport invented by a white man, playing in buildings owned by white men, slams a Chinese man for a hairstyle that evokes one worn by black people. This is worth a read to marvel at the weapons-grade stupidity embodied by virulent black racists who, because of Black Privilege and the hostile climate created by Barry and George, are immune from criticism.

Has anyone ever read articles on how to create and maintain dreadlocks? I always wondered how one would keep them from being smelly because hair seems to retain odors. The article I read went into great detail about not letting them get moldy. Yikes!

Graciousiousness meets illiterate. What a contrast but then we do have this stereotype that has proven accurate time after time. The Chinese have shown class and intellect and have been a valued part of our general culture for a long time now. Jeremy Lins smile lasts all day. What a gentleman.

There seems to be zero chance of escaping the pall of stupidity hanging over the national scene.

Imitation used to be considered as the ultimate form of flattery (at least the only form that can be somewhat trusted?)

I wish none of the kids related to me had culturally appropriated rap music. Those awful lyrics created by high school dropouts. Stupidity knows no race, or age, or country of origin?

This is actually quite amusing to me, considering the black community has no problem with appropriating our straight hair, and blonde or ginger hair color. Does that make them less black?

Dreads are horrible on black scalps. Remember Melissa Harris Perry on MSNBC? If you compare photos from her earlier broadcasting career to just before she started wearing wigs, you can see she lost a good 2-3 inches of the front of her hair, and that is permanent balding.

If they are getting moldy, it is because of poor hygiene. Dreads can be washed like any other head of hair.

Philadelphia — When U.S. Sen. John McCain was a younger man, once or twice he was tasked with carrying Joe Biden´s luggage. On Monday, after Biden, the former U.S. vice president, awarded McCain with the National Constitution Center´s Liberty Medal, McCain was sure to let everyone know he hadn´t forgotten. "I´ve resented it ever since," McCain said on the lawn of the Philadelphia museum as he accepted the award for his lifetime of sacrifice and service to the country.

President Trump said Monday that he’s eyeing another major government reform — this time tackling welfare. He said some recipients are taking advantage of public assistance while others in need don’t get it. “We are looking very, very strongly therefore at welfare reform,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the start of a Cabinet meeting at the White House. The mention of welfare reform was unexpected. He rarely mentioned the topic during the campaign and has been consumed with other ambitious plans since taking office. Mr. Trump is currently trying to push a major tax-code overhaul through Congress, a huge undertaken

Morehouse College board members have chosen the former dean of Georgetown University’s business school to lead the Atlanta-based, historically black college for men. The board voted late Sunday to name David A. Thomas the college’s 12th president. (Snip) Thomas said in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution his goals include increasing enrollment from its current 2,200 students to 2,500 students, providing more scholarships, finding opportunities for every student to study abroad, supporting faculty research and engaging in issues that improve outcomes for African-American men, noting Morehouse “is a place where we can offer solutions to those issues.”

Mogadishu, Somalia — The most powerful bomb blast ever witnessed in Somalia´s capital killed 276 people with around 300 others injured, the country´s information minister said early Monday, making it the deadliest single attack in this Horn of Africa nation. The toll was expected to rise. In a tweet, Abdirahman Osman called the attack "barbaric" and said countries including Turkey and Kenya had already offered to send medical aid. Hospitals were overwhelmed a day after a truck bomb targeted a crowded street near key government ministries, including foreign affairs. As angry protesters gathered near the scene of the attack, Somalia´s

Lost in the uproar over the NFL sideline protests against police brutality are newly released statistics showing that the threat to black men is skyrocketing — not from trigger-happy or racist cops, but from crime. More than any other demographic group, black men are paying the price with their lives with a surging violent crime rate over the past two years, including a 20 percent jump in the overall homicide rate, even as the number of blacks killed by police declines. Using homicide figures from the 2016 FBI Uniform Crime Report released Sept. 25, Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald

A 39-year-old man in the country illegally pleaded guilty Thursday to causing a traffic crash that killed a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy last year. Adrian Espinosa-Flores, 39, pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless second-degree murder in the death of Master Deputy Brandon Collins. Collins was killed on Sept. 11, 2016, while conducting a traffic stop on U.S. 69 just north of 151st Street in Overland Park. Collins’ patrol vehicle was parked when a pickup truck driven by Espinosa-Flores ran into the back of Collins’ vehicle, pushing it into the SUV that the deputy had pulled over.

Young LGBT immigrants face
additional hurdles with end of DACA

Advocates pushing for an unaltered Dream Act to protect young immigrants are warning of the discrimination that some in the LGBT community would face if they were deported. The sunsetting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has enrolled 12,000-13,000 Nevada residents, including a rough estimate of 577 members of the LGBT community. Same-sex marriage is either illegal or unrecognized in four out of the top five origin countries for DACA enrollees, and advocates say they could face additional dangers in the detention process while they await deportation.

Two ‘Dreamers’ caught smuggling
illegal immigrants into U.S.

Two young illegal immigrant “Dreamers” in the U.S. under protection of the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty were caught smuggling illegal immigrants in separate incidents in Texas, authorities announced Thursday. The arrests come at a time when Congress is debating what to do about Dreamers, and the arrests could complicate the picture painted of Dreamers as law-abiding standouts who are victims of circumstance. Customs and Border Protection said the first smuggling attempt was broken up on Oct. 4, after Border Patrol agents stopped a car at a checkpoint on Interstate 35 and discovered two illegal immigrants from Brazil hiding in the trunk.

President Trump will halt subsidy payments to insurers who sell coverage under Obamacare — a move that would deal a critical blow to the program, the White House confirmed Thursday night. “Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare,” the White House said in a statement. Trump has decided to end the payments — which cost about $7 billion this year — after the GOP failed numerous efforts to repeal Obamacare on Capitol Hill. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so.

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity.
