    Morgan Freeman isn’t taking these sexual harassment allegations lightly, a lawyer for the 80-year-old Oscar-winning actor is demanding CNN issue a retraction for its report accusing Freeman of inappropriate behavior — but the network is not backing down.
    Yahoo Entertainment obtained a copy of the 10-page letter from Robert M. Schwartz addressed to Jeff Zucker, the president of CNN, which says the outlet has “defamed Mr. Freeman.”

    Facebook's policy on white supremacy plays right into a racist agenda

    TechCrunch


    In an ongoing series over at Motherboard, we're learning quite a bit about how Facebook polices hate speech and hate organizations on its platform. Historically, the company has been far less than transparent about its often inconsistent censorship practices, even as white supremacist content — and plenty of other forms of hate targeted at marginalized groups — runs rampant on the platform ...

    Trump’s double standard: Praise for white Indiana hero, while black Nashville hero is ignored
    Jason Seaman in Indiana and James Shaw Jr. in Nashville were both heroic. Why is only one lavished with praise?
    CHAUNCEY DEVEGA


    ... For Trump, the skin color of Jason Seaman makes him worthy of effusive public praise. By comparison, Shaw's skin color deems him less so. As I explained in an earlier essay here here at Salon:

    Memorializing African-American lynching victims is past due, and it must be only a start
    BY BETH LEW-WILLIAMS


    The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which recently opened in Montgomery, Alabama, forces America to reckon with the lynching of more than 4,000 African Americans. But this should only be the beginning of the historical reckoning.

    Memorializing African-American lynching victims is past due, and it must be only a start

    Recognizing other narratives of violence against Native Americans, Mexicans and Chinese immigrants does not lessen the brutality of Jim Crow, nor does it mean that all people of color share a uniform history.

    USA TODAY NETWORK Hollis R. Towns


    ...For too long, we have buried the hard subjects of racial bigotry, profiling and prejudice by pretending it doesn’t exist.
