This could be anyone's sister, anyone's daughter, anyone's mom

The GOP is making a huge mistake as they always do. America will not stand for this shitshow.

If the Republicans are digging in on on this, they must be petrified of losing the Senate

For whatever reason, they want THIS guy and know he won't be an option after the election.

Trump will not pull his name. He cannot suffer this kind of loss, it will drive him insane.

I see this stubborn attitude as a sign they know power is slipping from the grasp.

Police officer hailed a hero for staying calm while suspect yells the N word at least 50 times


A black police officer who stayed impressively calm while an arrested suspect screamed the N word at her — more than 50 times in one minute — has been called a role model for law enforcement.

A cellphone video shot Wednesday shows the unnamed officer standing with suspect Ilya Freyman, 51, who is sitting in front of Ocean Auto Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., while he screams the slur. During the racist episode, the officer keeps her composure, avoiding eye contact with the man, even as he yells, “F*** you” to her colleague who tries to intervene. The video was originally posted to Facebook last week by user Swagnista Keda, who has reportedly deleted it.

A representative from the New York Police Department told Yahoo Lifestyle that officers responded to a call from a neighboring gas station on Ocean Avenue after Freyman punched and shattered a glass booth. He was arrested on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, and harassment.

Hundreds of white fans jeered a biracial woman representing Japan after win at US Open


The presentation of Naomi Osaka's first grand slam trophy was overshadowed on Saturday night by a bout of tears from the newly-crowned US Open winner, following her beaten opponent Serena Williams' on-court meltdown.

The trophy ceremony was met with a chorus of boos from Williams' home US Open crowd, who had been unhappy at her treatment during the match.

Williams was earlier given a game penalty after she angrily took issue with umpire Carlos Ramos and tournament referee Brian Earley late in the second set. The rarely seen game penalty was the result of three code violations for Williams, the first after she was accused of receiving in-game coaching, the second for smashing a racket, while the third and final violation was dished out after Williams launched a tirade of abuse at Ramos.

The controversial finish cast a cloud over what should have been Osaka's shining moment.

Well, I'm not wrong, am I?

I mean, isn't that what happened?

EDIT: Thankfully, Serena Williams stepped up and calmed a classless crowd. Watching how ashamed that young woman was heartbreaking.
