Whoever said racism is a thing of the past cannot be living anywhere in the real world. Hate crimes are as prevalent as ever and now apparently they are going digital as a 14 year old white teenager has been charged with a hate crime for listing a Black classmate as a slave on Craigslist–with his photo!

“We hold our students accountable for their behavior, which includes appropriate disciplinary consequences,” Principal Bill Wiesbrook said in an email to parents of students at the school. He insisted that the listing on Craigslist was “not reflective” of the school as a whole. The Craigslist ad made its way to social media, and the description had a racial slur.

The mother of the victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, spoke with WGN News about the situation. “They used to be friends, they are not anymore. The moment he started teasing my son, calling him dumb, making fun of his skin color, saying ‘shut up slave’ last October,” she said. “They are not friends anymore.”

Naperville police chief, Robert Marshall, released a statement on the hate crime, which he called a “despicable and extremely offensive post that is not at all reflective of the caring, welcoming community that our department serves and protects every day.” 

We are here for it! The boy was charged on Wednesday with a hate crime and the principal of his school and local law enforcement both went online, via Twitter, to condemn his actions.

We are glad this community and school responded so quickly to these shenanigans. Let us just hope some judge will not feel sorry for him, or that his white privilege, will save him from justice being served. What are your thoughts? Does the punishment fit the crime?

Teen & His Friends Pretend to Rob His Mother for YouTube Views!

According to news station KCPQ, the 17-year-old from Cleveland Heights and three friends, all wearing ski masks, confronted his mother on her driveway with a gun. After the mother escaped from the fake robbery, police said the teen admitted that his motivation was a live YouTube stream.

That’s when the teenager called 911 and said, “I just did a fake robbery prank on my mom and she ran. I know she called the police. She’s nowhere to be found.”

Asked by the dispatcher if the fake robbery attempt was a prank, the teen said, “Yeah, but she thought it was for real. Like when I got to wrestling my friends for fake, she ran out of the house.”

The dispatcher asked, “Can you explain to me what happened and why you did that to your mother?”

(Grabs belt!) We are hoping the police press charges on these boys. This is a prank that went way too far! We have seen–and done–some pranks in our heyday, but never to the likes of traumatizing our own mother. What do you guys think of these shenanigans? Sound off in the comments section below!

Joe Melgoza, 30, who has been described as a “loving” family man was celebrating his new union on Sunday when he was attacked at his wedding reception, which was held in the backyard of a family member in Chino, KTLA reported.

At around 2:20 a.m. police found Melgoza suffering from blunt force trauma to his head, Chino Police Department said in a statement.

Police discovered the mortally injured the groom after responding to reports of a fight breaking out around Oaks Avenue, just a couple of blocks away from Melgoza’s celebration.

Once on the scene where the altercation broke out, police found two victims of battery and were told by witnesses that there was another victim involved in the incident, but “was missing.”

After conducting a brief search, officers found Melgoza. He was then transported to Chino Valley Medical Center where he died.

Following Melgoza’s death, police arrested brothers Rony Aristides Castaneda Ramirez, 28, and Josue Daniel Castaneda Ramirez, 19, on suspicion of killing Melgoza, according to Chino Police.

It is not immediately clear if Melgoza knew the suspects prior to the attack, according to authorities.

At this time, the investigation remains ongoing.

This is truly terrible, and the brothers who did this deserve justice to its maximum capacity. We are praying for Joe Melgoza and his wife–now widow–in this terrible time. This story only reminds us that time with the ones we love is truly precious, and life is fleeting.

Twitter’s Porn Ban May or May Not Be Happening in 2020, The Jury Is Out

They say that sexual expression, work, and porn are under attack. First Craiglists’ classified ads for sex related interests was dismantled, then Tumblr’s removed adult content, and Facebook and Instagram have explicitly banned porn and anything too risque from their platforms. Twitter may be the latest platform to take a similar stance, leaving sex workers and their admirers on alert due to a change in their policy set to take place on January 1, 2020.

They say that sexual expression, work, and porn are under attack. First Craiglists’ classified ads for sex related interests was dismantled, then Tumblr’s removed adult content, and Facebook and Instagram have explicitly banned porn and anything too risque from their platforms. Twitter may be the latest platform to take a similar stance, leaving sex workers and their admirers on alert due to a change in their policy set to take place on January 1, 2020.

The social media platform announced a changed in its policy:

twitter porn ban

Twitter considers “violent sexual conduct” to be any media that portrays violent actions alongside sexual interactions, “whether real or simulated.” This includes “simulated lack of consent,” or consensually produced porn that plays with nonconsensual themes (better known as “consensual nonconsent”). The site bans “sexualized violence,” including “inflicting physical harm on an individual within an intimate setting” when “it is not immediately obvious” if all participants have given their consent. Given how Twitter defines adult content, it appears these policies also apply to adult artwork such as furry and anime porn.

Twitter further reserves the right to remove any adult material “that depicts violent sexual conduct or gratuitous gore anywhere,” and the platform may permanently ban accounts “dedicated to posting this type of content.” While adult content is still allowed, Twitter warns that any accounts “dedicated to posting sensitive media” may face a permanent suspension if sensitive content accounts for the “majority of your activity on Twitter.” Taken to its logical conclusion, this could turn into a broader ban on NSFW content.

However, it is also being reported that consensual pornography will not be banned. The likes of which people tend to indulge in on OnlyFans and most porn in general. Out.com has provided further details:

twitter porn ban

“Accounts that simply post adult content either to express their sexuality or their interests will not be suspended,” a Twitter spokesperson said in July. Reached by Out this weekend, a separate Twitter spokesperson held to that, stating that there actually had been no update to the company’s TOS “sensitive content” section, where adult content is regulated, since the initial reports in July, and that users can expect porn to be treated the same in 2020 as it had been in 2019. 

“The only thing updated in November was the reporting instructions,” the spokesperson confirmed, referencing two Twitter threads and a blog post detailing those changes. Both Daily Dot and Gizmodo acknowledge that the updates they reported on were implemented in May but, for some reason, still opted to stoke hysteria by running their new stories as if there would be some changes coming in 2020. Instead, the current policy will continue: consensual pornographic content is allowed when it is uploaded into tweets. Adult content is not allowed in header images, profile photos, or in Twitter live streams — if it is posted there, users could see their accounts indefinitely suspended.

One aspect of the TOS that did get an update in wording that might be pertinent to those who post porn was pointed out by XBIZ. One new clause says “We may also remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Services, limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service, suspend or terminate users, and reclaim usernames without liability to you.” The “limit distribution or visibility of any Content on the service” is an update that will go into effect on January 1, 2020. But what does this mean?

The Twitter spokesperson we spoke to said that the policy has always been there, “we have just clarified the language.” What this essentially means is that, this is something that Twitter has long done, and is now putting words to it.

XBIZ surmised — and we are inclined to agree — that this is simply verbalizing the app’s ongoing practice of shadowbanning. For accounts who post primarily adult content, Twitter sometimes makes it more difficult to find their account handles, and even sometimes makes it impossible to search the account’s tweets using the in-app tool. And while that definitely sucks and requires some maneuvering, it does not constitute a looming NSFW ban on the service.

Twitter has yet to make an official, outright statement about adult content on its platform. Honestly, we are in favor of Twitter banning porn on its platform. We feel there is a place and space for everything. Pornhub actually has profiles people can create for themselves and monetize by posting their own amateur porn videos. It would be nice to scroll on Twitter without seeing a miscellaneous penis, vagina, or anus on our timelines–even when you do not follow anyone who does. Needless to say those retweets are dangerous. What do you guys think? Are you here for a Twitter porn ban or no? Sound off in the comments section below!
