White Supremacists To "March On Google" In 9 Major U.S. Cities This Saturday

If this ain't white tears… 

It's been the same every morning since a crew of neo-nazis and white supremacists took to the University of Virginia campus to protest "White lives matter!" and "You will not replace us!" on Friday evening (Aug. 11).

Your usual morning commute is spent combing through a series of headlines reporting on the current political climate, which today flagrantly promotes white supremacy, xenophobia and anti-blackness. You come across one CNN article, whose title reads, "The far right is planning 9 rallies nationwide this weekend alone" and you're like, "Oh, s**t," or something along the lines of, "Try it if you want to."

But then you open the page, start to read said article, expecting for that grey cloud to pull over you until you begin to feel overwhelmed with waves of hopelessness and fury, only to learn that these alt-right organizations racist wypipo are collectively conducting an unprecedented number of rallies across nine major U.S. cities in the name of Google.

In the year 2017 of Our Lords Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter and Robyn Rihanna Fenty, white people are on a crusade because of the firing of Google employee James Damore, the same person who authored the controversial memo about the company's diversity policies (he hates women and POC). Here's the kicker: Damore ain't riding with the "alt-right" and will "likely not" support them.

Again, the "March on Google" will take place in nine major U.S. cities this coming Saturday. The rallies, if you 'bout it 'bout it, are scheduled to take place at the following Google locations around the country:

  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Los Angeles
  • Mountain View, California
  • New York
  • Pittsburgh
  • Seattle
  • Washington, D.C.

Meanwhile, Logan Smith, the individual behind Twitter account @YesYoureRacist, as seen in this video, explains the importance of every non-racist's responsibility in dismantling white supremacy. "White people in particular have a responsibility in standing up against white supremacy, because if we don't challenge bigotry whenever we see it, then we are being silently complicit in it."

Florida Grandmother Incensed After Six Year Old Granddaughter Was Arrested For A Tantrum

A 6-year-old was arrested, fingerprinted and had her mug shot taken by Florida police for reportedly throwing a tantrum at her elementary school last week.

According to reports, Meralyn Kirkland learned her granddaughter Kaia was brought to the juvenile detention center in Orlando, Florida after she had an outburst.

“What do you mean she was arrested," Kirkland recalled. "He said ‘there was an incident and she kicked somebody and she is being charged and she is on her way,' ” Kirkland explained to local news outlets.

After explaining to the officer that Kaia has sleep apnea, Kirkland says the cop showed no concern.

“She has a medical condition that we are working on getting resolved and he says, ‘what medical condition?' she has a sleep disorder, sleep apnea,’ and he says, ‘well I have sleep apnea and I don’t behave like that.”

Kirkland couldn't believe what was happening and couldn't believe a child had been arrested.

“They told us we had to wait a few minutes because Kaia was being fingerprinted, and when she said fingerprinted it hit me like a ton of bricks,” Kirkland said.

“No six year old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile center to be fingerprinted, mug shot”

Kaia is back at home.

Candace Owens Says White Nationalism Doesn't Affect Black Americans And Minorities

Candace Owens has raised eyebrows again, this time for alleging that white supremacy isn't an issue affecting black Americans.

The 30-year-old conservative commentator spoke to members of the House Oversight Joint Subcommittee hearing this weekend and said that of the 100 issues affecting the black community in the country, white nationalism isn't one of them.

"Based on the hierarchy of what’s impacting minority Americans, if I had to make a list of 100 things, white nationalism would not make the list," Owens said Friday.“White supremacy and white nationalism is not a problem that is harming Black America."

Owens butted heads with assistant University of Chicago professor Dr. Kathleen Belew who was brought on by the Democrats to speak to the growing crimes committed by white nationalists against black citizens.

“To me, this feels a lot like your reaction to being named in one of these manifestos," Belew told Owens. "Now, you’re of course not responsible for the words of someone writing that document, but I do think laughing at it is a real problem.”

Owens vehemently refuted Below's allegation.

"The audacity of you to bring up the Christchurch shooting manifesto and make it seem as if I laughed at people that were slaughtered by a homicidal maniac is in my opinion absolutely despicable," she said speaking in regards to her name being mentioned in a shooter's anti-Muslim manifesto and the criticism that followed when she tweeted "LOL."

A Fried Chicken And Doughnut Sandwich From KFC Is On The Way

KFC is throwing its hat into the chicken sandwich ring but adding something sweet to the mix.

According to reports, the fast-food chain is testing a fried chicken and doughnut sandwich in the Richmond, Va., area to see if customers are interested in their version of the sweet and salty craze.

Dubbed Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts, the new sandwich will be sold at seven locations in Richmond.

“Served hot and fresh, no matter the time of day, the donuts create a tasty flavor experience in every bite. Consumers will have a variety of options to satisfy their sweet and savory taste buds,” said a spokesperson.

The "Best Fried Chicken Sandwich" Olympics seemingly began when Popeyes announced they had a chicken sandwich of their own, in essence, encroaching on new territory, particularly Chick-Fil-A territory. A friendly social media battle ensued which helped to promote both sandwiches and forced long lines across the country. Some continued to pledge their loyalty to Chick-Fil-A, while others found a new meaning of life in the Popeyes chicken sandwich.

There's no word on how long the Kennedy Fried Chicken & Donut launch will last, but if given the opportunity to taste test it, would you?
