Haiti Has Responded to Donald Trump.
According to The Associated Press, Haiti’s government says Trump’s comments reflect his “racist view of the Haitian community.” Damn right it does. But the president insists he “never said anything derogatory about Haitians” and that his “sh*thole” comments were made up by Democrats.
“I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians,” he tweeted Friday morning. “Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
And on Thursday night, he wrote: “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!” Give us a break.

After all, the fourth season that dropped in December seems to be getting good reviews from those who’ve seen it. “I’m extremely into it as of a week ago,” Chance tweeted to recording artist Kyle after asking if anybody was tuned in. “Almost done with season 2.

Welcome to America, Where a White teacher Can Threaten to Lynch a Black Student and Keep Their Job.
Renee Thole, the white Mason Middle School teacher who told her 13-year-old Black student, Nathan, that he would be lynched for not turning in his work, will not be penalized. Instead, she’ll attend “cultural training” and receive a slap on the hand. She didn’t mean it “the way it came out,” guys.
“I said to him, [..] get to work,” Thole wrote in a statement to the administration. “Your classmates are tired of you costing them points. When you come in tomorrow without your homework completed, you [sic] classmates are going to be angry and then become a mob who will want to lynch you.”
She then went on to apologize, stating, “If I had just taken two seconds to think before used the world ‘lynch,’ I would have not hurt a student. I didn’t think about all of the ugliness and horrible history surrounding that word before I used it. I am deeply sorry and I hope that you can forgive me.” Girl, bye.
