Ja Morant Suspended Again For Brandishing Weapon

NBA player Ja Morant has been suspending from playing once more after displaying a gun on Instagram Live. A repeat of a similar incident that occurred in March, it is unclear when this video was initially recorded, as Morant is currently under "League review." When the incident happened two months ago, he expressed his remorse. "I’m completely sorry for that (his ban). So my job now is, like I said, to be more responsible, more smarter and don’t cause any of that no more."

White Nurse Goes Viral For Weaponizing Her Whiteness

In a now viral video, a white nurse was seen trying to steal a Citi bike from a Black man who had already paid for it on his account. Sarah Jane Comrie, an employee of Bellevue Hospital in New York, is seen aggressively trying to snatch the rented bike from a Black man and then begins to cry as a tactic of intimidation once her co-worker arrives on the scene. In the video, she is heard accusing the man of "hurting her unborn baby" although he never touches her throughout the duration of the clip. Social media was irate over her behavior, as it mimicked actions that have historically resulted in the unjust deaths of many Black men.
