One of the more passionate speeches delivered before the hundreds of thousands who showed up for the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, January 21, was pop queen Madonna. The 58-year-old legend was one of several entertainers, including Ashley Judd and Scarlett Johansson, and politicians, who joined feminists Gloria Steinem and Cecile Richards to demand that the Trump administration address Women’s issues. Enormous demonstrations grabbed headlines across the globe, with marches as far as Australia and Brazil joining in solidarity with women in Seattle, Chicago, Boston, New York City.

Madonna expressed discontent over the way women’s right to equal pay, the preservation of Roe vs Wade, and other matters concerning women have been given mind in government. At one point she even insinuated that she had thought about taking up arms, saying, “I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won’t change anything.” It is unclear whether she was speaking in the literal sense, or if the remark was made with hyperbole. She went on to says that she’s been able to abstain from venturing towards such militancy by choosing love.

The Michigan-born singer completed her time on the podium by leading the crowd to sing along with her classic “Express Yourself,” but not before she addressed those who criticize the broad spectrum of women who’ve taken the day to stand represented. “And to our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything: f**k you!” she said.

Brooklyn rapper Maino couldn’t stop himself from cracking up after coming across a line from Donald Trump’s inaugural address that has since gone viral. The nation’s 45th President delivered a speech that revolved around an “America First” message that characterized traditional Washington politicians as self-serving and unresponsive to the will of American voters. “We are transferring power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to you, the people,” he told his crowd of supporters on the National Mall.

Within hours of the ceremony, memes quoting a line from Bane in Batman: Dark Knight Rising had gone into wide circulation around social media. “We take Gotham from the corrupt, and we give it back to you, the people,” Bane states at one point in the film.

“This dude Trump’s speech was from Batman? Because he said the same s**t that Bane said in Batman,” Maino said mid laughter. “N****s is doomed my n***a.”



Marine Sent Threatening Letter After Home Vandalized With Racist Slurs

Reports of racial harassment made by an African-American U.S. Marine have gone unresponded to, he says, and he is calling upon law enforcement to step up their involvement so that he isn’t forced to take matters into his own hands.

Sean Reid has filed four reports with the Buffalo Police Department, all having to do with the vandalism of his property with racist slurs. Two of those reports name a local handyman he hired to build a fence around his residence, back in November. Reid has come home to find the words “deadbeat” and “n****r” written on the half completed fence and scratched into his vehicle. He believes the acts to be a spiteful response from the handyman for not having received payment for his work. But according to Reid, their agreement entailed half of the payment when the job began, with the other half to be handed over upon completion. Midway through the project, the man changed his mind, insisting upon incremental installments, says Reid.

“I work, I work hard. I pay my taxes. I mean, I don’t bother nobody. And for this to happen, I just want justice to be served,” Reid told a local news station. He has even filed report about a threat having been made, handing a letter sent to him by mail over to authorities. The alleged vandal has denied being responsible for the destruction of his property. Reid is upset that more hasn’t been done to move the case forward. “I’m angry period; at him, but mainly, you know, that no one has contacted me. I mean, what are they waiting for? For me to harm him and then get in trouble?”
