    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American attitudes toward China have soured significantly in the past three years, with 70% of those surveyed for a report published on Thursday saying Washington should stand up to Beijing over its human rights record even if it damages economic ties. Nearly 9 in 10 respondents to a Pew Research Center survey of more than 2,500 Americans conducted in February said they saw China, the world's second largest economy, as a competitor or enemy rather than a partner, the U.S.-based center said. "Americans want more focus on human rights – even at the expense of economic ties – in bilateral relations with China," the report said. President Joe Biden's administration, which took office in January, has singled out China as the "biggest geopolitical test" of this century, and endorsed a determination by the previous Trump administration that Beijing has committed genocide against minority Muslims. It has also...
    At heart, I’m your classic Anglican vicar. I’m the priest who will conduct your wedding service, baptise your child and come to see you when you’ve lost a loved one. But I am also a deliverance minister — a side-line I decided to pursue after my own experience, writes Rev Jason Bray, pictured The fear on my wife’s face was the first real clue. She’d woken to the sound of our baby Tom crying, walked into his bedroom and realised it was freezing. But only in the area around his cot. Laura and I had moved into our home the previous summer, just before my ordination. It was an old council house in Wales that the Church felt was ideal for a curate.  That first winter, the whole place was dark and dank, and we could never really get warm even when every radiator was on full-blast.  This was...

    A special education teacher has been shot dead after he allegedly confronted a teenager spraying graffiti on a storefront in Las Vegas.  Jose Santa Cruz, 32, was killed in cold blood shortly before 7 pm on January 7, after helping his father park a taco truck on East Charleston Boulevard.  Santa Cruz walked off from the truck and into a nearby parking lot before his father heard gunfire erupt just seconds later.  The young teacher was shot fire times before being rushed to University Medical Center. Despite the best efforts of doctors, he died hours later.  On Saturday, police arrested 18-year-old Zyonn Dawson over Santa Cruz's murder after scouring surveillance footage from the area.  Jose Santa Cruz (left) was killed in cold blood in Las Vegas on January 7 after he allegedly confronted a teenager spraying graffiti on a storefront.  Zyonn Dawson (right) has been arrested over the murder  Dawson has...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Aurora police say an 18-year-old man was shot and killed in a parking lot after confronting a group of dine-and-dash suspects on Christmas Eve. According to the affidavit, Rudy Arguello-Rios was shot in the chest outside Mariscos El Rey 2 at 10293 East Iliff Avenue. (credit: CBS) Witnesses told police that a party of eight was arguing with the waitress over their food being cold and refused to pay. When the waitress threatened to call the police, the party walked out of the restaurant — and the waitress followed them. Arguello-Rios and another person who was seated nearby followed them outside to defend the waitress. A witness said there was a fight — and Arguello-Rios confronted an armed woman, and tried to grab the gun. “He was transported to an area hospital were tragically he succumbed to his injuries a short time later,” investigators stated.

    Loading the player... It may be 2020 but discrimination and bias continue to plague Black Americans in the workplace. In a recent sit down with theGrio’s Natasha S. Alford, author, attorney and co-host of The View, Sunny Hostin, shared the moments she realized she was being discriminated against while working for ABC, and how she mustered the courage to do something about it — which says was worth the risk. “I had heard that I was the least paid host on the panel,” Hostin shared. “Even though I had the most legal experience and I was a legal correspondent. I had two jobs at the network.” Read More: ‘The View’ co-host Sunny Hostin accuses ABC of racist censorship But in reality she knew she wasn’t being treated fairly. The discrimination, she said, was painfully obvious. John Delaney, former Maryland Congressman and current 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate appears Thursday,...
    In July, as federal troops were confronting demonstrators in Portland, Oregon, longtime 9News meteorologist Marty Coniglio tweeted a photo that compared the action to Nazi Germany. A fixture on the channel's popular morning show, he was off the air the next day...for good. This week, Coniglio explained why he did what he did in a column for Westword, which starts with this: "Better to be a good American than a good employee. Distilled to its most elemental expression, that is the reason why I blew up a 35-year career in broadcast media to add my voice to the alarms sounding about the current state of our Republic." You can read Marty Coniglio's complete piece here (and see the Tweet below). Thousands of people did, and posted more than a hundred comments on the Westword Facebook page, most applauding the longtime TV personality and wishing him the best. Says Al: "Better...
    With President Donald Trump talking recently about releasing a health care plan soon, CNN’s Brianna Keilar repeatedly confronted White House deputy communications director Brian Morgenstern on when it’s actually going to be released. Morgenstern talked up what Trump has already done on health care and said that the president is “committed to protecting preexisting conditions,” and that he’s “about reducing costs [and] expanding access.” “People are already voting. Where is the plan?” Keilar asked. Morgenstern talked about how the American people can get a “pretty good preview” by looking at what he’s already done, but Keilar interjected and showed video of Trump saying at his ABC News town hall last week “I have it all ready.” “That was six days ago. Where is the plan, Brian?” Keilar asked again. “The president will roll it out when he is ready to do so and focus on expanding access, reducing costs…”...

    Axios’ Jonathan Swan appeared on MSNBC Tuesday night to break down his remarkable interview with President Donald Trump on The Last Word, guest-hosted by Ali Velshi. And Swan said his chief takeaway is that Trump “is not confronting reality when it comes to the virus.” He reviewed their contentious exchange about testing and how Trump keeps saying the U.S. has “done more tests than anyone in the world.” “That’s true. But it’s also not a particularly meaningful thing to say, because the reason the U.S. has had to do all these tests is because the virus spread undetected like wildfire through this country in February, March, April,” Swan said, “and it took a very long time to get the testing working and effective, and we’re still not there with these delays.” At one point the president claimed in the interview that there are people who say “you can test...
    President Donald Trump on Friday trashed Peter Alexander after the NBC correspondent asked why Trump hadn’t spent “more energy” on helping states to fund resources for the November election. “Peter, you know nothing about my energy, OK?” Trump fired back during an afternoon press spray at the White House. “You know nothing about what I’m doing. Listen, you know nothing about what I do. “NBC — I just told you about the false report that NBC put out the other night about the mayor of Portland,” he added. “This is the kind of stuff you get. You’ll see what happens. It’s common sense. Everyone knows mail-in ballots are a disaster.” Trump suggested on Twitter Thursday the November election should be pushed back if mail-in voting threatened to cause a delay in finding out the results, writing, “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be...
    Axios’ Jonathan Swan appeared on MSNBC Wednesday night to discuss his new interview with President Donald Trump and the preview already released showing him confronting the president on the alleged Russian bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops. Lawrence O’Donnell played the full exchange for his audience, commending the way Swan grilled Trump on the subject — something that other journalists noted the president wasn’t getting asked about in several recent interviews. Trump told Swan he didn’t raise the matter in his recent call with Vladimir Putin. “To go that long without being questioned seriously on this matter,” Swan said, “was unacceptable. And it’s not a matter that’s sort of boutique or niche or outside the realm of American life. This relates to U.S. service members. This is the lives of U.S. service members. This is the Taliban, which until recently has been killing U.S. service members.” He noted...
    Portland’s protester moms were hit with CS gas on Sunday night, after several hundred women, many wearing bicycle helmets and masks, attempted to form a human shield between anti-racism protesters and law-enforcement officials outside a federal courthouse in the downtown area. “Moms are here! Feds stay clear!” chanted the group of about 100 women, carrying signs that read, “Angry mama bear BLM” and “Moms are pissed.” It was the second night in a row that the group of women showed up to the front lines of the rolling demonstrations against police brutality and racism in the city. The White House has recently deployed federal officers to Portland, amid fierce opposition from many local and state leaders. On Saturday night, federal agents were filmed beating a 53-year-old man, now identified as Navy veteran Chris David. In the 11-second video—which has been viewed more than 7 million times—David seems impervious to the...

(Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images) Travel’s leadership, conferences, and advertising have long been white-dominated. Now, Black travel professionals are confronting their own industry, not just to acknowledge its lack of diversity, equity, and inclusion, but to demand that pro-Black policies be enacted immediately. In June, the newly formed Black Travel Alliance gave travel brands 72 hours to show that they plan to increase Black representation on press trips, step up their pro-Black philanthropic efforts, and diversify their management, events, and marketing. The alliance reached out by social media, email, and phone to collect companies’ key performance indicators (KPIs) with a deadline of Juneteenth, which this year became a day off for many employees for the first time.

    As the country grapples with ongoing protest and critical policy demands, MSNBC political analyst and SiriusXM host Zerlina Maxwell declares an end to white-centered politics in her new book. A timely read, The End of White Politics: How to Heal Our Liberal Divide contends that American politics cannot continue to disregard blind spots around race and injustice.   Maxwell points to a necessary realignment of the lens through which politics is produced and experienced, challenging Democratic candidates, the political strategists employed to assist them, and the media industry to do better. Directly confronting the often tried and failed tactic of “winning back” white voters, Maxwell argues that ending politics centered in whiteness is a difficult but necessary mandate in the current sociopolitical climate. “[W]e’re basing all of our focus on this mythical white working class voter in Ohio or Michigan,” said Maxwell in an interview with Prism. “We just have...
    When dealing with certain sensitive and controversial issues that have nothing to do with actual football, Joe Judge knows what he does not know. He was hired by the Giants, at the age of 38, because ownership believes he has the answers to lift a struggling franchise out of a terrible swoon. The title of head coach is all-encompassing, though, meaning the societal unrest, racial tensions and protests arising from a killing in Minneapolis and the subsequent response from the Black Lives Matter movement cannot be pushed off Judge’s desk as if they do not fall under his job description. This is not part of any coaching manual Judge has ever read, and when wading into the deep end of emotional and potentially polarizing waters, he is opting for more hearing and less talking. “Honestly as a 38-year-old white guy, I don’t have all the answers on this,’’ Judge told...
