Eddie Glaude wrote his new book about writer James Baldwin and America's troubled history of racism before George Floyd was killed on Memorial Day this year. “Part of the reason why I wrote the book is that I was grappling with my own despair and disillusionment” after the election of Donald Trump, said Glaude, the chair of Princeton's African-American studies program and a mainstay on the set of MSNBC's “Morning Joe.” “How I came out of the other side of that despair was a kind of insistence on bearing witness, on telling the truth about who we are, laying bare the consequences of our monstrous actions over time and over our history,” Glaude said in an interview on “The Long Game,” a Yahoo News podcast.
Tens of thousands of rapes are reported in India every year, but some stand out for being deeply disturbing. In one particularly shocking case, police in the capital, Delhi, have arrested a man in his 30s for the rape and assault of an 86-year-old grandmother. "The woman was waiting outside her home on Monday evening for the milkman when she was approached by her attacker," Swati Maliwal, head of the Delhi Commission for Women, told the BBC.
Police faced questions on Thursday after protesters were allowed to deface Sir Winston Churchill's statue in Parliament Square during an Extinction Rebellion demonstration. The statue was daubed with the word “racist” in yellow spray paint while climate protesters occupied Parliament Square despite hundreds of police officers being stationed in the area. The Metropolitan Police confirmed that one person had been arrested, but questions were raised as to how the statue was able to be defaced for the second time in three months.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is going to use $5 million in coronavirus relief funds on a tourism ad campaign.

The state now ranks second in the country for new cases per capita over the last two weeks, with 439 new cases per 100,000 people, but Noem is actively still encouraging people to visit.

In at least three of the conversations between Donald Trump and Bob Woodward the topic of racial justice was discussed, and the president scorned the idea that he had a responsibility to "understand the anger and pain” felt by Black Americans. The series of phone calls occurred after Black Lives Matter protests had erupted across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police. The Washington Post reports that on 19 June Woodward brought up the subject of White privilege.
A Pakistani court sentenced a Christian man to death after finding him guilty of blasphemy for insulting Islam's Prophet Muhammad in text messages he sent to a Muslim co-worker in 2013, a defense lawyer said Thursday. Saiful Malook said his client, 37-year-old Asif Pervaiz, was convicted and sentenced this week in the eastern city of Lahore. It was the latest example of the Islamic nation's strict upholding of blasphemy laws.
Israel's cabinet on Thursday moved towards a near-complete nationwide lockdown to address its world-leading coronavirus outbreak ahead of the Jewish High Holidays, a prospect likely to enrage Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ultra-Orthodox allies. Health Minister Yuli Edelstein had proposed a total lockdown as new infections nearly surpassed 4,000 in a single day this week. But the cabinet instead considered the recommendations of Israel's coronavirus czar, Ronni Gamzu, who suggested closing schools, restaurants, malls, outdoor markets and venues after Rosh Hashanah -- Jewish New Year -- next week.
A 12-foot-1 alligator killed Sept. 3 in Mississippi is captivating state wildlife experts, not for how big it is, but for how big is used to be. It more than doubled in size since being fitted with a research tag in 2011, according to the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. “Nationally, it is rare to document alligators of this size class with annual growth rates of this magnitude, but (such cases) are always associated with habitats with abundant and exceptional prey resources,” the department said in a Sept. 9 Facebook post.
WASHINGTON – Trump administration officials at the Department of Homeland Security directed intelligence analysts to stop providing assessments of Russian interference in the U.S. election and to instead focus on China and Iran, according to a whistleblower complaint released Wednesday.

Three years after India's independence in 1947 and a year after the communists came to power in China, the new government in Beijing began strongly asserting its claims and repudiating earlier treaties it says were signed under duress, but which India says are fixed. Beijing's approach has strengthened under Xi Jinping, China's most powerful leader in decades who has sworn not to surrender even an inch of territory. In the 1950s, China started building a strategic road on the uninhabited Aksai Chin Plateau to connect its restive regions of Tibet and Xinjiang.
