Before today, Missouri state Rep. Bill Lant, the leader of the state’s House Republicans, was most famous for mocking a former high school classmate’s sagging breasts. Now, he can also be famous for stopping a black man from talking.
February is Black History Month. This morning, Donald Trump held a White House event to mark the occasion. Below is an accurate transcript of his remarks.
The media often makes reference to White America and its mysterious attitudes. But where can you gain access to this closed group? You must journey deep, deep into the rabbit hole.
In the end, the warnings got the story all backwards. Beware, the political analysts said—Donald Trump may be an incompetent, bigoted buffoon, but after he loses, a cleverer, more subtle, more respectable Trump will come along.
Blame white people. Blame white men in particular, but reserve plenty of blame for white women. Blame old people, too. Blame rich people, as always. Blame the public at large for Donald fucking Trump getting more votes than Donald Duck. Democracy enacts the will of the public; this is what the public wants.
Tonight in New York’s Washington Square Park, Madonna performed a “surprise” concert in support of Hillary Clinton. I don’t know a single thing that happened there except for this: Madonna said she considers herself a minority, and then her audience openly laughed in her face.
With hours to go before tonight’s presidential debate, one great defining question hangs over American politics: Will Donald Trump’s performance tonight allow white people to keep pretending he can possibly be president?
Very Specific Playlists is a weekly feature in which Jezebel staffers make very specific Spotify playlists based on their weird proclivities.
So my home state of Minnesota "won" the right to host Super Bowl LII in 2018, presumably because Zygi Wilf convinced local taxpayers to pony up for a new stadium with funds from electronic pull-tab games that haven't generated any actual revenue yet, and such triumphs must be rewarded. Anyway, since there is nothing…
Great moments in White People history.
Leave it in the discussion below. Go nuts. It still won't measure up to this morning's (since deleted) offering from the Golf Channel.
This video is a few months old, but it's making the internet rounds today, and it is adorable enough that we're going to share it with you. Justin "The Viking" Wren, a former UFC fighter and a graduate of The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, is also a Christian "advocate." Here he is on a mission trip (possibly from…
During last night's Super Bowl, one professional boxer appeared in a commercial. It was not Floyd Mayweather, and it was not Manny Pacquiao, though they are the two highest-earning athletes in all of sports. It was not any champion of any weight division at all. It was Mike Lee, a mediocre light heavyweight with only…
This has been a breakthrough year for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mitt Romney captured the Republican presidential nomination. Manti Te'o led the Notre Dame football team to an undefeated regular season and a No. 1 ranking. And now the nation's top basketball prospect, Jabari Ali Parker, has taken…
The Timberwolves are two-thirds white, despite playing in a league that's been at least 75% black for two decades:
George Karl, on Kevin Love: "I think we used to call him a poor man's Larry Bird. I think you can take 'poor man' off that comparison now."
Fair warning: the lineup for the dunk contest at All-Star weekend is out, and it is uninspiring. You've got Indiana's Paul George, Minnesota's Derrick Williams, New York's Iman Shumpert (assisted by Jeremy Lin), and Houston's Chase Budinger.
