Activists Claim Racists Fund Black Abortions

Activists believe Planned Parenthood allows racist donors to designate their monetary donations to fund black abortions, according to U.S. News & World Reports. Led by the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., a group of black pastors, are demanding that candidates refuse donations from Planned Parenthood, which has reportedly outlined a $10 million campaign to fund candidates who support abortion. While the activists say they have evidence in videos that show black babies are being targeted, Planned Parenthood says they do "not tolerate racism of any kind."

Black Is The New Italian

Italian Vogue painted their entire issue black: devoting their July issue to black models and issues showing up American Vogue who dared ask the question “Is Fashion Racist?” in their July issue, then dedicated a paltry spread to a mere three models—Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn and Arlenis Sosa. “Mine is not a magazine that can be accused of not using black girls,” editor Franca Sozzani, who has put Naomi Campbell, Liya Kebede and Alek Wek on her covers, told the New York Times. “Franca doesn’t realize what she’s done for people of color,” Naomi Campbell said. “It reminds me of Yves [Saint Laurent] using all the black models.”

Spike Lee, Time Taveler

Is Spike Lee planning on traveling back in time to input some "Negro" actors in Clint Eastwood’s war films? Actually, the acclaimed director is making a movie based on the book Time Traveler penned by one of the first African-American theoretical physicists, Dr. Ronald Mallett. The book focuses on Mallet’s determination as a child to build a time machine and save his father from dying, which led to his pursuit of a career in physics. Lee says, “[I’m] elated to have acquired the rights to a fantastic story on many levels, but also a father-and-son saga of loss and love.”

Chinese Is The New Black

A court ruled that Chinese South Africans are black, according to the AFP. Challenged by the Chinese Association of South Africa (CASA), Chinese South Africans (who are less than 10,000 of the country's 47 million population) can now benefit—with people of black, Indian and mixed-race ancestry—from laws aimed at correcting injustice stemmed from the former apartheid regime.

ObamaNation: Obama Mama Drama

The right-bent Fox News Channel is under fire (yet, again) for referring to Michelle Obama as "Obama's baby mama" in an on-air graphic. In a statement, Senior VP of programming credits the misstep to a producer who "exercised poor judgment" during the infamous segment. However, the producer was not fired and no other disciplinary action was announced (go figure!), according to the AP. This "poor judgement" isn't surprising (remember, we're talking about the same station that called the Obamas' victory pound a "terrorist fist jab"). It's disappointing because the network's apology won't reach enough of its core audience to correct the ignorance caused by undermining the accomplishments of the prospective First Lady of the free world. Imagine Fox News calling John McCain's wife his baby mama!
