In Congressional Hearing on Hate, the Haters Got Their Way

Tuesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on the rise of hate crimes and white nationalism devolved into a four-hour squabble over who’s most hated, and who’s doing the hating, in America. The members of the committee and some of the eight witnesses who sat before them battled over whether anti-semitism or anti-black hate is most deserving of their attention, and whether it’s white supremacists or Muslims or Democrats or the President who harbor the most hate. Meanwhile, in cyberspace, the comment section on the YouTube livestream of the hearing filled up with so much filth that YouTube had to shut it down. Candace Owens, a conservative commentator with the group Turning Points USA, told the House Judiciary Committee that the real …

The story of rhino poaching, elephant trampling and man-eating lions is even more complicated

(CNN)Lions eat people. In fact, they eat them all the time. And although the news last week focused on a suspected rhino poacher who was eaten by lions after being trampled by elephants, the story may tell us more about the hazards of poverty than about nature taking vengeance against the sins of mankind. To protect their crops, subsistence farmers had to sleep in their fields at harvest time. Lions followed the pigs to the fields, and some learned to add sleeping farmers to their diet. A similarly desperate situation has persisted for many years in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, which is located along the border with the much poorer nation of Mozambique. Impoverished Mozambicans seeking employment in South …

Kyle Korver’s thoughtful essay on race—and his role as a white man in today’s America—is a must read.

Korver describes how his initial response to news of the incident has gnawed at him: “On the …

This artist is fighting back against selfie culture by ‘dying’ at the worlds most popular landmarks.

via Instagram Remember 15 years ago when taking a photo of yourself seemed like the height of narcissism?
