Powerful Poem About Race Gets Full-Page Spread In The New York Times

Maddie Crum | September 22, 2016 | Arts
Langston Hughes is a writer of striking, seemingly simple poems. His words are melodic; they have a musical rhythm. “I, too, sing America,” he writes at the beginning of his poem, “I, Too,” about an unnamed speaker who feels that his own...

Mark Wahlberg Pulls A Total Dad Move, Embarrasses Daughter With Rap About Spanking

Julia Brucculieri | September 22, 2016 | Entertainment
Be careful what you ask for, Ella Wahlberg.  The 13-year-old daughter of Mark Wahlberg appeared with her dad on “The Dan Patrick Show” Wednesday when she said to her dad, “I want to hear you rap, right now.” Judging by her face when her dad started spitting rhymes, Ella regretted her request right away. She was not ready for what was coming.  “I’m your 45-year-old father and I got a rap and if you keep misbehaving I’mma give your behind a slap, mhmm, and it’s called a spanking,” he rapped, warranting a shocked reaction from his daughter across the table.  But he didn’t stop there. As Ella motioned for him to cut the rap short, Marky Mark kept on going.  “And later in life you’re gonna thank me ‘cause all the advice that I’m giving you is good for you, and if I’m not your butt and behind’s gonna be black and blue,” he said.  Ella was downright mortified:  We may not have rappers for dads, but we feel you, Ella. We feel...

Hillary Clinton Educates Zach Galifianakis About Sexist Double Standards On 'Between Two Ferns'

Paige Lavender | September 22, 2016 | Politics
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton fielded questions from Zach Galifianakis on his Funny Or Die show “Between Two Ferns.” Galifianakis jokingly peppered Clinton with questions about how fast she could type as secretary (of state) and how President Barack Obama likes his coffee. He asked her what she planned to wear to the first debate, which airs Monday on CNN. “There’s this thing called the double standard,” Clinton replied, as she pointed out the historical significance of her being the first female candidate of a major party. Galifianakis noted that being the first woman president wouldn’t be the only historically significant part of a potential win in November. “Not to take away from the historic significance of you perhaps becoming the first female president, but for a younger, younger generation, you will also become their first white president, and that’s pretty neat, too,” Galifianakis says.

This Video Of A Boy Asking Obama If He Can Adopt A Syrian Is Everything

Willa Frej | September 22, 2016 | Politics
A 6-year-old from New York was so moved by the images of Omran Daqneesh, a Syrian boy seen covered in dust and blood after surviving airstrikes in Aleppo, that he wrote to President Barack Obama asking if Omran could come and live with his family.  Obama first read portions of Alex’s letter at the Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis, which he hosted at the United Nations on Tuesday. He then released an adorable video Wednesday night of Alex reading the letter at his Scarsdale home. “Dear President Obama, remember the boy who was picked up by the ambulance in Syria?” Alex read from his family’s dining room table. “Can you please go get him and bring him to our home? We’ll be waiting for you guys with flags, flowers and balloons.” Alex said his sister Catherine would collect butterflies for Omran, and he would teach Omran how to ride a bike and how to add and subtract. He would introduce him to his friends. “We can all play together,” Alex continued. “We will invite him to birthday parties and he can teach us another language.” There are currently about 20 million refugees around the world, including almost 5 million from Syria alone. A total of 65 million people are displaced from their homes ― that’s more than at any time since World War II.  As world leaders gathered this week to discuss solutions to the crisis, Obama used the letter to urge people to be more accepting of refugees. “Those are the words of a 6-year-old boy ― a young child who has not learned to be cynical or suspicious or fearful of other people because of where they come from, how they look, or how they pray,” Obama wrote on Facebook. “We should all be more like Alex. Imagine what the world would look like if we were. Imagine the suffering we could ease and the lives we could save.” His summit complemented the U.N. General Assembly’s first-ever summit on refugees and migrants, held Monday. Participants in Obama’s meeting were nations and organizations that had pledged financial assistance toward improving education and employment opportunities for refugees around the world. In total, Obama gathered $4.5 billion in commitments, including $1 billion from the U.S.  The Huffington Post is documenting the rising wave of anti-Muslim bigotry and violence in America.

Below is a sampling of some of the meanest tweets. “Olivia Wilde’s forehead is the same size as my left ass cheek ...
