Africa, cnn.com, and Memes: White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years @balleralert White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While racist, hate speech should never be tolerated, it is strictly prohibited in South Africa, as it is specifically excluded from the protection of free speech in the Constitution. In fact, according to the NY Times, back in 2016, the country released a draft law that would criminalize racism, meaning hate speech cases would go to criminal courts instead of civil and would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, the nation has moved to implement the new rules and subsequently make an example of a white South African woman. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Vicki Momberg was found guilty in November for crimen injuria, better known as the willful injuring of someone’s dignity in her racist verbal attack on a black police officer. The incident was caught on camera and quickly went viral. Since then, Momberg has been prosecuted and sentenced to three years in prison with one year suspended sentence, as she becomes the first South African to be jailed for the offense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We’ve had crimen injuria (cases before), but they have always been coupled by other charges. This is the first for a prison sentence for crimen injuria on its own,” a spokesperson said of the sentencing. “We are pleased with the sentence. This sends a clear message to those who undermine other people’s rights.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the incident that led to the sentencing, Momberg was caught on video hurling racial slurs at South African police officers after they stopped to help her after her car was broken into in Johannesburg. According to reports, she repeatedly used words that were used to insult black people during the apartheid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, Momberg will have two years behind bars to think about her actions.

America, Children, and Dicks: We at DICK'S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country. We have heard you. The nation has heard you We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that's in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that's taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America - our kids Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens We believe it's time to do something about it Beginning today, DICK'S Sporting Goods is committed to the following We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK'S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age We no longer sell high capacity magazines We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly . At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations: Ban assault-style firearms Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21 Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks .Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks We hope others join us in this effort to let our kids know that their pleas are being taken serioushy Some will say these steps can't guarantee tragedies like Parkland will never happen again They may be correct- but if common sense reform is enacted and even one life is saved, it will have been worth it We deeply believe that this country's most precious gift is our children.

The film will be titled, “The First Purge” and will still be produced by Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes. Writer-director James DeMonaco, the original writer of the series, will be coming back and will work alongside Gerard McMurray, who will be directing. 'The First Purge' will follow the same release date as its predecessor, 'The Purge: Election Year', and will debut the weekend of 4th of July. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’ve never seen any of the films, you might think it’s just like any other horror film. However, unlike any other scary movie 'The Purge' has continuously taken steps to highlight the injustices and greed of America, tackling issues like homelessness, racism and institutional and political oppression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here is the synopsis of 'The First Purge': “To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This time the film’s creators may just take a few jabs at Trump and his followers by the looks of their poster.

I knew the kids” he told CNN. “It was the most emotional time in my life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He shared the same sentiments about SutherlandSprings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Immediately my heart opened up and I was like ‘yes, we can do this,'” he said. “It’s a small town. People that felt like they were safe ended up in this tragedy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ganem's caskets are always personalized and will range from fitting younger victims to older victims. In this case, his smallest is for a 1-year-old girl. The casket maker says he sees what he does as a way to help families get through this depressing time.

Bowser, Friday, and Golden State Warriors: D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors "If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You" @balleralert D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors “If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Friday, StephCurry shared his opinion about the Golden State Warriors’ championship visit to the White House. Although he didn’t want to go for his own personal beliefs, the final decision would be left up to the team and organization. However, before the team was able to decide for themselves, Trump took offense to Curry’s statement and withdrew the invitation, prompting a Twitter storm of backlash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the Warriors released a statement, saying they would use their trip to D.C. to embrace their team values of equality and inclusion. Shortly after the team’s announcement, another elected official in D.C. welcomed the team to the nation’s capital. D.C. Mayor MurielBowser shared a statement on social media welcoming the team to practice their First Amendment rights and-or lose to their beloved Washington Wizards during Warriors’ visit in February. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are Washington, D.C. We are proud to be our nation’s capital,” Bowser said. “We welcome over 20 million visitors a year. Whether you’re here to work, play, practice your First Amendment rights, or lose to our Wizards, we welcome all to visit our museums, our monuments, our restaurants, and our thriving neighborhoods if they do so peacefully and respectfully. While you’re here, Warriors, we are happy to identify ways for you to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion – what we call DC values. And if anyone ever tells you that you cannot come to DC, tell them Muriel Bowser invited you.”
