In an interview with DailyMailTV, Dash bashed Trump, the January 6 insurrection, and her old political viewpoints during her time as a Fox News anchor. “I’ve lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News. I was the angry, conservative, Black woman. And at that time in my life it was who I was,” she said. “I realized in 2016 that anger is unsustainable and it will destroy you. I made a lot of mistakes because of that anger.”
Adding, “There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them. They were very arrogant and prideful and angry.”
We all love growth, but does it count when (even though all of Black America told her to do better) her remorse comes after the damage has been done? According to Black Twitter, almost doesn’t count.
Another charge for Derek Chauvin.
Things are not looking good for Derek Chauvin, the former police officer charged with killing George Floyd in Minneapolis last May. A judge reinstated a third-degree murder charge against him after his attorneys failed to get the Supreme Court to block it.
As reported by NBC, Chauvin, who knelt on Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes May 25, is already charged with second-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of 40 years, as well as second-degree manslaughter. The third-degree murder charge carries a maximum sentence of 25 years.
Jury selection for the case was suppose to begin on Monday but was pushed to Tuesday this week. Legal experts are saying that the additional charge gives jurors — 6 of whom have been selected — another option to convict Chauvin of murder. The trial is set to begin later this month.
More gun legislation may be on the way.
In a week filled with sweeping wins for the Democrats, it’s looking like there may be more light on the horizon. The House is looking to pass two pieces of legislation that would expand gun control, including the requirement of background checks that anti-gun activists have been fighting for for years.
The bills have not gotten the support they need to get through the Senate just yet, but lawmakers are hopeful about them getting more support.
NPR reports: The House also voted to approve legislation that would close the so-called “Charleston loophole,” which made it possible for Dylann Roof, the white supremacist who killed nine people at a historically black church in Charleston, S.C., in 2015, to purchase a handgun even though he should have been barred from purchasing one. The measure lengthens the review period for background checks from three days to up to 20.
The “happiest place on earth” just got harder to enter.
If you were planning on going to Disneyland anytime soon, think again. Well, think about expanding that budget. This week, the theme park conglomerate announced that they will be doing away with annual passes — ones that allowed for gradual payment plans — and instead would only have day passes, which run considerably high.
Before closing, single-day passes were around $150 for off-hours and around $200 for “peak days” — never mind the cost of parking, food, and the assortment of extras that come with entering a thematic experience.
SFGate notes, that the annual passes that are no longer available “had long been a solution to making Disneyland more affordable, even to people who travel to the park.” With them gone, especially in light of how Covid-19 has hit the economy, Disneyland is looking like an experience for the privileged alone. And there’s nothing happy about that.
