French rapper Nick Conrad’s new song is the textbook definition of hatred and discrimination against a country and its people. The most outrageous thing about it is not in the lyrics, which include disgusting lines about “burning” and “fucking” France, but the fact that such hateful and explicit trash has been deemed worthy of staying on Facebook and Instagram while right wingers like Laura Loomer and Paul Joseph Watson have been removed for “far less violent content.”
According to its producers, pro-life film Unplanned has been effectively “banned” in Canada due to several prominent Canadian distributors’ refusal to pick up the film because of its pro-life content. Both Landmark and Cineplex, “two of the largest distributors in Canada,” have refused to run Unplanned in Canadian theaters. Writer and producer for the film, Chuck Konzelman expressed his belief that it was due to the film’s pro-life content and not due to a “lack of consumer demand.”
Trans people are angry, and this time it’s not with biology.

Some say that if a hero lives long enough, they’ll eventually see themselves become the villain. Well, that certainly can be said for PBS children's classic Arthur. The show, now in its 22nd season, has taken beloved character, Mr. Ratburn, and made him blindingly queer.

As one character exclaimed, “It’s a brand new world.”

Both DC and Marvel are hellbent on a new diversity initiative, looking to capture the hearts of a “global” audience. Maybe the comic book giants figure they’ve wrung as much money as they can from the straight, mostly white heros of DC’s Arrow and Marvel’s Avengers. A lesbian “Batwoman” is on the way from DC, and Marvel has confirmed that soon we will get our first gay crimefighter.
Well, we finally have the opportunity to see what the Obamas have up their media mogul sleeves. After announcing a multi-million dollar Netflix deal, the former first couple have spilled the beans on their new streaming content, offering diehard Obama fans several options for clinging to the “Hope” and “Change” social justice dream from the comfort of their living rooms.
Los Angeles-based Estrella TV’s coverage of the Trump administration's latest immigration proposal is so off base and inflammatory that it makes Univision look like a paragon of journalistic virtue in comparison.
Univision’s news division continues to display chronic anti-Catholic bias, this time by injecting church sounds and imagery into a story about the Scouts, that has nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church.
Phase II of the Marvel comic book cinematic universe is going to involve a few less of our classic superheros in favor of a bold new array of diverse and inclusive characters. Yes, Marvel’s going a lot more ethnic, and a lot more gay because what’s cooler than finding out that your new favorite Avenger enjoys his skintight latex suit for far more than just crime-fighting purposes?
