Motel 6 apparently colluding with the American Gestapo.

Giving you away like motel matches – Balloon Juice

Quote:
The front-desk clerk told him that he needed to show identification in order to reserve a room. Rodriguez-Juarez handed over the only thing he had — a Mexican voter ID card.

Six hours later, he was lying on the bed, watching TV, when he heard a knock at the door.

He opened it. Three agents from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement were waiting for him.

[…]

A Phoenix New Times review of court records found that between February and August, ICE agents made at least 20 arrests at Motel 6s, showing up roughly every two weeks.
The company is apparently claiming this was a local management policy at a few locations and has since been discontinued, but their mealy-mouthed response (see the BJ comments) isn't exactly confidence-inspiring.

sean. on Twitter: "New survey: 48% of Trump voters agree that, "America must protect and preserve its White European heritage." https://t.co/pQrldtuVWk"

I think the survey author simply paraphrased the Fourteen Words. Half of Trump voters agreed with it. But how dare you call them white supremacists.

(Clinton was basically exactly right with her "deplorables" speech - she even said half of them went in the basket.)

ESPN's account of its treatment of Hill is pretty suspect, by the way:

(Apparently the reason he's being suspended rather than fired is procedural: it's evidently required to have a vote to fire him. If the vote doesn't end up firing him, this story will end up being even more enraging.)

Also, this:

Thankfully, it doesn't seem like anyone was hurt. Still, both sides!

There’s more irony points to be had if you write a paragraph.

I didn't know who Gregg Popovich was, I had to look him up. He is the coach of the San Antonio Spurs (makes sense considering the back ground :p). Has some great lines here:

Just compare these two videos of people resisting arrest. The first one just runs away, he's shot in the back and murdered. The second attempts to attack the officer, steal the cop car, chases the cop away... and even though the cop has his gun aimed at the guy the entire time, not shot.

Warning, the first video actually shows Patrick Harmon being killed.

Law enforcement thwarts terrorist plot in Asheville, NC; plot is ignored by president* and media. You'll never guess why! (You already know why.)

Louisiana Sheriff laments letting out good people from jail because he enjoys their cheap labor. I think we have a name for that.
Steve Prattor“In addition to the bad ones — and I call these bad — in addition to them, they’re releasing some good ones that we use every day to wash cars, to change oil in our cars, to cook in the kitchen, to do all that, where we save money,” Sheriff Prator said. “Well, they’re going to let them out.”
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/12/u...ve-prator.html

Oh sure, he didn't specifically mention race, just that when that he looks at the Louisiana jail system, which jails more per head than any other state, with 1 in 86 adults in prison, and those prisoners are over 60% black, despite the state only being 30% black, he feels they should hold back more nonviolent offenders because he enjoys the free labor and money they make for him. That's all, nothing racist about that right?

Quote:
‘In Brazil #Blackisbeautiful is now toilet paper. Where do black lives matter?’
Yes, actual black toilet paper. I have other questions.

Quote:
The manufacturers of a new brand of luxury black toilet paper in Brazil have been accused of racism for using the slogan “Black is Beautiful” as part of an advertising campaign starring a famous white actress.
