Adele sparked outrage and concern on social media when she posted a photo that shows her wearing a Jamaican flag bikini top and her hair braided in bantu knots.

The 32-year-old pop singer snapped the photo at London's Notting Hill Carnival, according to the photo caption.

Adele further enraged Americans when she left a comment that appeared to mock the Jamaican dialect during the Monica vs Brandy Verzuz battle on Monday night.

"Wah Gwaan! Yow gyal, yuh look good enuh," she wrote. The rough translation is: "What's going on! Wow girl, you look good you know."

There are plenty of white Jamaicans on the island, but Adele is not one of them. It is considered offensive to native Jamaicans when non-Jamaicans attempt to speak Patois or Patwa and end up butchering the native language.

The reaction on Twitter was mixed as many defended the pop star, saying the message appeared to be Photoshopped.

While some claimed the singer was profiting off black culture, many pointed out the star grew up in Tottenham, London and has been surrounded by black culture all her life.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell, whose mother was born in Jamaica, commented on Adele's Instagram photo with two love heart emojis and two pictures of the Jamaican flag.

While British journalist Piers Morgan said the entire scandal was "absolute guff" on Monday's Good Morning Britain talk show.

Joe Biden said the Black community is not as "diverse" as the Hispanic community. He didn't clarify what he meant by that remark.

Biden made the comment during an interview with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) which aired on Wednesday.

National Public Radio's Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked Biden whether he would stop the deportation of Cubans, if elected president.

"I'm going to look at every single country in the world... this guy [President Donald Trump] is sending them back," Biden said.

Biden assured Garcia-Navarro he would attempt to restore the Obama-Biden administration's policy of improving relations with communist Cuba.

Biden then added:

"And by the way, what you all know, but most people don't know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things ... it's a very diverse community."

Biden's comment drew mixed reaction on Twitter.com, with some accusing him of being an overt racist.

Twitter user @jg091297 wrote: "He could have said 'they all look alike to me' and this would have sounded less racist."

User @KenAndTonic tweeted: "Wonder how all of his VP candidates feel about this, you know, being all the same and everything."

User @NthingInPrtculr tweeted: "I'm Black and I find what Biden said incredibly condescending, clearly he thinks he can say whatever he wants & still get our votes & I fear that he is right."

But some Black Democrats shrugged off Biden's latest gaffe: @MrNicdraw wrote: "Still better than the alternative. Like wtf."

Terry Crews is in the blog headlines again after he was practically run off Twitter for his statement about "Black supremacy".

Crews was on the hot seat in June for tweeting: "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.

"Like it or not, we are all in this together."

This time Crews is being dragged for a comment he made comparing the Ku Klux Klan to Black people.

In response to racist remarks made by television host Nick Cannon about white people and Jews, Crews tweeted, "toldja so!"

Crews captioned a clip of Cannon's controversial statements, saying white people were “savages" who lacked malanin because they originated from a "hostile" climate where they were exposed to less sunshine than Africans.

Crews said Cannon's comments were rooted in the "Black supremacy" ideology that he warned about.

Crews, pictured with his wife, Rebecca King, implied that Black Supremacy is more detrimental to society than white supremacy.

"We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don't ... it's going to slip into something we are really not prepared for," Crews warned.

When a follower tweeted, "You going so hard against nick cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back," Crews responded:

"When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK... It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and 'the insult of acting white.' My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don't know how powerful you are."

Grocery stores in Florida and Georgia removed Goya products from store shelves amid calls to boycott the company after the CEO heaped praise on President Trump.

Prominent Latinos expressed their outrage after Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue appeared in the Rose Garden and praised President Trump's for his support of Hispanic companies.

"We are so blessed to have you as our leader," Unanue told Trump on Thursday at the White House. Unanue was invited to the White House as part of the president's effort to court Latino supporters.

But prominent Latinos such as Julian Castro called for a boycott of Goya products under the hashtag #Goyaway on Twitter.com this week.

Goya Foods "has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations. Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain," Julian Castro, a former Democratic presidential candidate and an Obama administration Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, said on Twitter.

"Americans should think twice before buying their products," he added.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is Mexican, added: "Oh look, it's the sound of me Googling 'how to make your own Adobo.'"

Goya Foods donates millions of dollars worth of food to charities and also employees hundreds of workers in its factory.

Unanue said he is not backing down despite the boycott, which he called a "suppression of free speech."

He noted that he also praised former President Obama when he was invited to the White House during Obama's term in office.

"When you're called by the president of the United States, you're going to say, 'No, I'm sorry, I'm busy, no thank you?'" he said. "I didn't say that to the Obamas, and I didn't say that to President Trump."

He said he previously worked with Michelle Obama to help include Goya in nutritional guidance to minority communities.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads Trump by 39% with Hispanics in national polls.

Social media is cracking down on a sick hashtag challenge mocking George Floyd, the Black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis, EURweb.com reports.

The NY Post reports the sick challenge went viral after three teens were arrested in the UK for a possible hate crime after sharing photos of themselves mocking Floyd's death.

In the viral challenge, white teenagers and young adults are seen reenacting Floyd's death as an officer knelt on his neck during an arrest on a misdemeanor charge on May 25.

Social media giants Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram blocked the hashtag and removed posts featuring the sick photos.

"We are aware, and are removing these posts for violating our Community Standards," a spokesperson for Facebook told The NY Post.

Black Twitter exploded in outrage over the challenge.

"This is disgusting," a user named Ila tweeted. "Who the HELL does this?"

"Their mothers must be so proud, wrote @arena1_lisa.

"If you think this is funny, you're apart of the problem. F–KING DISGUSTING," tweeted @TheRealLadyRaw.

The backlash continues over a YouTube star who "rehomed" her Asian adopted son because the 3-year-old's special needs issues were too complex for her to handle.

YouTube viewers lashed out at vlogger Myka Stauffer and her husband James after they gave up their adopted son, Huxley, because his autism was too much to handle.

According to Today, major brands bailed on the couple following the intense backlash. Brands including Playtex Baby, Danimals, Suave, Chili's, and Big Lots have announced they will no longer partner with Stauffer.

Myka and James earn thousands of dollars a month on YouTube.com. Their revenue increased when they documented the difficulties trying to adopt baby Huxley from China in 2017.

In a post in 2017, Stauffer wrote that she knew he was "profoundly developmentally delayed" beyond what was detailed in the adoption paperwork.

After 3 years of documenting Huxley's every move, the Stauffers quietly stopped including him in social media photos, and went on with their lives as if he never existed.

In a tearful video - in response to her followers demanding to know where Huxley was - she claimed she wasn't aware of Huxley's autism or a newly diagnosed brain cyst.

The Stauffers' followers accused the couple of using little Huxley to create content for profit, then "rehoming" the boy with another family when they could no longer monetize him.

Democratic lawmakers winced when presumptive nominee Joe Biden made a cringeworthy statement to Black radio host Charlamagne tha god during a Skype chat last week.

Biden told Charlamagne he's not Black if he can't choose between him or President Trump in the November elections.

Democrats immediately called on their Black allies in the news media to spin the story in Biden's favor.

But Charlamagne, a radio host on The Breakfast Club, said Biden's chances of avoiding low Black voter turnout are slim if he doesn't pick a Black female running mate.

"On top of possible Russian interference and voter suppression, [Democrats] have to worry about voter depression," he said, "that's people staying home on Election Day because they just aren't enthused by the candidate.

When asked by MSNBC host Joy Reid about Biden potentially picking Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Charlamagne said if Biden chooses Klobuchar, Black voter turnout will be low this November.

"They've got to make some real policy commitments to black people," Charlamagne said. "It has to come to the point where we stop putting the burden on black voters and start putting the burden on Democrats to show up for black voters."

Democrats are quickly losing their enthusiasm for Biden as the presumptive nominee.

Black Twitter's cancel culture upended Doja Cat's career overnight. The 24-year-old L.A. native saw her career evaporate into thin air after video leaked that showed her chatting with white supremacists.

In the video, the biracial singer is seen flirting with the white men in an alt-right chat room. At one point she blurts out "ni**er" while the men laugh. Doja, whose mother is Jewish-American, seemed comfortable using racial slurs.

After the clip began making the rounds online, fans also dug up one of her songs, believed to be from 2015, entitled "Dindu Nuffin" - which is known to be a racial slur for Black criminals, who claim to be innocent after facing police brutality.

She sings on the track: "How much nothing can a dindu do / If a dindu, dindu nothin' / How much money could a dindu make / If a dindu did all the things that you wish to."

Some believe that the song was targeted at Sandra Bland, a Black woman who died in police custody in 2015.

Doja responded to the backlash late Sunday night. Some say her explanation is too little, too late.

Question: Do you forgive Doja, or is she still canceled?

Charlamagne tha god came out swinging a day after Joe Biden dropped a racist remark about Black voters during their short Skype interview.

Biden, 77, sparked outrage when he told Charlamagne "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't Black."

The humiliated radio host told CNN that Biden's statement was part of his track record with Black voters, that includes his crime bill and the war on drugs that decimated Black communities.

The radio host blamed "systemic racism" in healthcare as the reason the coronavirus hit Black people hardest during the coronavirus pandemic.

"Like I said before if you have created legislation that has hurt then you have to create legislation that helps, it's just that simple. The whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt and he has been a very intricate part of that system."

Charlamagne added:

"Whether you're talking about '84 with the mandatory minimum sentences for drug dealers, when you talk about '86 with crack laws that gave you more [prison] time for crack cocaine and powder cocaine, or if you talk about the '94 crime bill. He really was one of the people on the front lines when it came to the war on drugs, and mass incarceration. If he wants to be president, he needs to fix that."

Sen. Joe Biden offered his sincerest apologies for suggesting that all Black Americans vote for Democrats regardless of their record on civil rights.

Biden, 77, sparked a severe backlash when he told Charlamagne tha god "you ain't Black" if he didn't pick him over Trump.

Black Twitter erupted with condemnation and a plethora of Biden dementia memes. Biden is rumored to be suffering from the longterm effects of senile dementia.

Many on Black Twitter said Biden would not have insulted any other race in such a manner.

Biden previously angered Black Americans when he commented that former President Barack Obama was "articulate" and "bright" and "clean."

Biden humbly apologized for his cringe-worthy remark to Charlamagne and all Black Americans in a statement to the AP on Friday.

"I should not have been so cavalier," Biden told the Associated Press. "I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted. I shouldn't have been such a wise guy."

Biden added that, "No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background," he told the Black Chamber of Commerce in a phone call on Friday.

Black conservatives have long complained that Democrats take Black people for granted and just assume they will vote the party line regardless of the candidate.

Joe Biden sparked controversy on social media for suggesting that radio host Charlamagne tha god "ain't Black" if he doesn't vote for Biden, a Democrat.

Biden suggested that all Black Americans automatically vote for Democrats regardless of their record on civil rights.

Biden, 77, made the remark during a chat with Charlamagne tha god, real name Lenard McKelvey, on the syndicated radio program "The Breakfast Club" on Friday.

Biden's remark came when he tried to end the interview. "You can't do that to Black media!" Charlamagne shouted.

"You've got more questions?" said Biden, after looking at his watch. "Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black," Biden said sarcastically.

"It don't have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact -- I want something for my community," Charlamagne replied.

"Take a look at my record, man," said Biden. "I extended the Voting Rights Act 25 years. I have a record that's second to none. The NAACP has endorsed me every time I've run. Take a look at the record. Anyway, thanks, I will come back."

A Black artist was forced to take his Facebook page private after he posted artwork that showed a young Black girl taking up a weapon against the two white males who killed Ahmaud Arbery.

Maurice Jackson created the artwork as part of his hip-hop ballerina series. The picture, posted on May 8, shows a young Black girl wearing a pink tutu with her natural hair in afro puffs. She is armed with a rifle and is facing down two Caucasian males wrapped in the confederate flag.

She is holding a photo of Arbery, who was killed by a former cop and his son in south Georgia on Feb. 23. The two men were arrested on Thursday and charged with felony murder and aggravated assault.

Jackson captioned the artwork: "*NEW ART* 'I THOUGHT THEY LOOKED SUSPICIOUS' #AuhmadArbery [sic] #RIP #hiphopballerinaseries."

The artwork earned praise from fellow artists and Jackson's supporters. But Black women unleashed their fury on him for portraying a minor child as the protector of Black males.

Art is supposed to be purely subjective. But the anger and bitterness expressed in the comments really reflects the frustration that many Black women feel toward Black men who abandoned them and their children for other men or women of other races.

When will Black women accept some responsibility for what Black males have become?

Most Black males were raised in homes where women were head of household. Only 33% of Black women who gave birth were married in 2019. It has been proven that Black women can't raise Black boys to be men.

It's time to do some serious self-reflection.

A former New Hampshire state Rep. and Joe Biden supporter was forced to resign after posting a graphic tweet questioning the position of the female vagina.

Richard Komi, a Democrat, sparked outrage on Twitter when he questioned Tara Reade's sexual misconduct allegations against Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Komi doubted Reade's allegations because, he says it would not be easy for Biden to insert his finger in Reade's vagina without her cooperation.

"Judging by the position of the female vagina, it will not be easy for anyone to just put their finger into the vagina unless their [sic] is some Cooperation [sic] from the female herself. That is why I believe Tara Reade’s allegations is [sic] false. She is looking for attention."

Komi deleted the tweet when outraged Twitter users questioned his professionalism and his knowledge of the female anatomy.

The backlash was swift. Komi was forced to apologize publicly to all sexual assault survivors.

"I wish I had worded my words more appropriately. It was not intended to lessen the pain that sexual assault survivors face all their lives," Komi told Manchester Ink Link on Friday.

"I do not believe Joe (Biden) is the type of person who would do anything to hurt a woman," he added.

"Representative Komi's comment is wrong, inappropriate, and offensive to all Democrats, and does not reflect the values of our party," New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley said, Manchester Ink Link reported.

Komi was the first African refugee to be elected to the New Hampshire State House. He fled persecution in Nigeria after he was targeted by the government.

Future Hendrix drew scorn on Black Twitter when he posted an image of Instagram model girlfriend Lori Harvey and objectified her body.

The 38-year-old rapper angered feminists on Black Twitter when he shared a graphic photo of Lori relaxing in the nude by the side of a pool.

The father-of-8 posted an image of Lori's exposed butt cheeks, and he captioned the image "Proud of u. #lifeisgood."

Future shared the image on Instagram.com not long after his ex-fiancé Ciara's husband Russell Wilson shared a photo of Future and Ciara's son in his Little League baseball uniform.

Wilson captioned the image: "OPENING DAY of Little League! So much fun! Proud of you growing up #BestDays."

Future often stalks Russell and Ciara's social media timelines and he often throws subtle digs at them out of petty jealousy or depression.

Question: Is Future being petty and disrespectful to Lori?

Screen grab: News 4

A former Oklahoma Christian University recruiter who was fired for conducting a multicultural exercise at a high school says his reputation is destroyed.

Cedric Sunray, who is American Indian, conducted the exercise at Harding Charter Preparatory High School during a Feb. 24 assembly.

Sunray was let go within an hour after he lined up students based on their skin color and hair texture.

He said 'OK, everyone now line up from darkest to lightest skin complexion," said Korey Todd, who is in the 11th grade.

"He told us nappiest hair in the back straighter hair in the front," said 11th grader Rio Brown.

"I am embarrassed and ashamed and I am mad at what happened," said Oklahoma Christian University President Jon deSteiguer. He said he planned to visit the high school to speak with the students on Friday.

But Sunray defended his exercise, saying he was teaching how the students will be "valued and warranted" by society.

Sunray told News 4 that he conducted the same exercise 87 times this year. He called the exercise an "icebreaker."

"It's about breaking down all those walls," he said.

"I break the groups into four teams and then I say line up darkest to the front and lightest to the back," Sunray said. "From the largest afro to the tightest braid to the blondest with blue eyes. They all want to know they are valued and warranted. And that is what I provide."

Sunray said the negative press coverage destroyed his reputation as a college recruiter.

"It destroyed my reputation but my character won't change," he said.

Sunray tells News 4 that he already has a new job lined up at another metro university.

Wen asked if he would conduct the exercise again, he answered "Oh yes."

"I have been doing this exercise for years. We need to have these conversations."

He said the only thing he would do differently is give a more detailed explanation of the exercise upfront.
