PewDiePie apologises for racist slur and says he’s “learned nothing” from past controversies

After the game in which Kentucky shot 27 for 70 from the field, Rupp said “Hell, they just whipped us. That’s the story of the game. I hope to be back here again sometime. JPS Note – Although many writers have portrayed Rupp as downbeat immediately after the game [some have suggested that he didn’t shake hands with Texas Western coach Don Haskins, a claim which will be discussed in detail and debunked later in this article ], it is interesting to contrast that with an actual audio clip from an interview after the game.
In the audio, Rupp does appear concerned about the free throw differential later in his life, Rupp wondered why UK was called for so many fouls when they were playing a zone while Texas Western was playing an aggressive man-to-man but overall, he seems upbeat and even has the presence of mind to start talking about the upcoming summer, and joking with interviewer Claude Sullivan about helping him broadcast baseball games Sullivan was also an announcer for the Cincinnati Reds.
Beyond that, not everyone claimed Rupp was downbeat at all. Bob Ingram, sports editor of the El Paso Herald-Post described Rupp in an article after the game as “relaxed, agreeable, jovial and seemingly happy although just a few minutes before the Kentucky team he was reported to have more affection for than any of the teams he ever coached was beaten for the national title.
In the end, the administration at Kentucky did have to haul Rupp away from the coach’s seat. He never returned to the title game. He was 64 years old. He might never get that close again.

Feb 15, , Maria Tahir Staff Illustrator Minorities cannot be racist. Racism is the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races. That definition was not found on Tumblr or Buzzfeed, but good ole Merriam-Webster. The system of racism begins with a race designating itself as superior to another. To carry out acts of racism, a race must have power and privilege.

The skirt length is Starfleet Regulation. It was short intentionally. I was dressed in a science officer costume from Star Trek: Not the sleek little work-appropriate but still sexy jewel tone tunics from the new movie, but the flared, strangely-constructed, unapologetically teal and chartreuse polyester cheerleader dresses that fit perfectly with the now retrofuturistic vibe of the original show. And at the beginning of the day, I just assumed the lady who commented was pointing out that I needed to tug down the dress a bit.

Archives At the start of the American Civil War in , “amalgamation” was the word of choice for describing cross-racial canoodling. Then, in , the word “miscegenation” came along. It was first used in a pamphlet published, supposedly, by abolitionists encouraging black and white people to get together and get procreating. The pamphlet praised diversity as one of America’s greatest strengths, and it suggested that the country’s triumphs were achieved not only by its “Anglo-Saxon progenitors, but from all the different nationalities.
The pamphlet was a hoax, put out by anti-war Democrats hoping to trick the public into believing that President Lincoln, who was running for re-election, had a secret plan to “solve America’s ‘race problem’ with a campaign of interracial sexual relations that would create a new ‘American race,"” as race studies scholar Philip Kadish puts it. In some ways, the “miscegenation” hoax didn’t work; Lincoln was re-elected, and slavery officially ended in But the term lived on as states passed anti-miscegenation laws barring interracial marriage, and “became the foundational justification for the Jim Crow segregation that followed,” writes Kadish.
While miscegenation is by no means considered a neutral word today, very few people know just how laden it is. Unpacking the history of these terms can help us better understand how Americans felt about racial mixing in the past — and to identify any lingering skittishness we may have inherited. As demographics change, language falls behind Today, I have the option of selecting more than one race on my Census form, if I want.
But that choice is still very new: These surveys offer a window into how government officials thought about race in the U. So the next time you find yourself rolling your eyes at people who insist on shouting from the mountaintops that they’re a quarter this, half that, a dash of the other, keep in mind that for decades, they had very limited options. That started to change in the mid th century, in the wake of Loving v.
