Trump plans HBCU conference shortly after announcing his support for white supremacists

Donald Trump is completely unfit to be president of the United States. Though he’s given us a plethora of evidence in the last seven months to corroborate this fact, the past week alone has served to remove any doubt. In a country which has a history of serious injustice and racial division and with race relations worsening by the day, Trump solidified his fate as Divider-In-Chief when he announced his support for the “very fine” white supremacists who rallied in Charlottesville. At this point, all rational-thinking minorities, people of color and human beings in general should want nothing to do with him. Which is why it’s both bizarre and astoundingly tone deaf that the administration thinks that now is the time to have a White House sponsored conference for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). But that’s exactly what they are doing.  A White House official said that a Trump administration-backed conference for historically black colleges and universities will go ahead as planned next month.  In recent days, a Democratic lawmaker and prominent nonprofit donor to the schools recommended to the White House that the National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week Conference be postponed because of concerns “related to recent national events.” [...] Johnny C. Taylor and Rep. Alma Adams, a North Carolina Democrat, were among the voices who tried to get the White House to halt the planning. Taylor, the outgoing president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, wrote a letter to [Omarosa Manigault-Newman, assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison] dated Aug. 18, saying that there was a “pretty strong consensus” in the HBCU leadership community that the White House should hold off until good faith measures — such as appointing an executive director and advisory board — showed that the White House had a “commitment to advancing the HBCU agenda.” It’s pretty ridiculous to insist on holding a conference for a group of people that you’ve not only done absolutely nothing for, despite promises to the contrary, but whose livelihood and well-being you actively work against. Nevertheless, the administration persists.

Reports: Cavs, Celtics complete trade involving Irving, Thomas

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics have reportedly agreed to a blockbuster trade that will see them swap All-Star point guards.According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports and several other NBA reporters, the Celtics will send Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets’ 2018 first-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving. In addition to being the biggest trade of the offseason, the deal is incredibly unique in that the Celtics and Cavs still remain the two best teams in the Eastern Conference. Both should be the favorites to return to the Conference Finals.While Boston gave up a lot, the important thing for president of basketball operations Danny Ainge was keeping rookie Jayson Tatum and second-year guard Jaylen Brown. It’s also possible that the Celtics did not want to give Thomas a max contract, but they will have no problem offering one to Irving, who is three years younger.
