Dr. Umar Johnson went viral this week when video showed him chatting with a Caucasian woman.

The video went viral because Dr. Umar, a clinical psychologist, has promoted himself as a Black nationalist who is vehemently opposed to interracial marriages.

In 2017, he said, "When you marry a White woman, you're investing in White supremacy. There is no way you can stand with Black people when you sleep with White folk. There's no way you can care as much about our issues as you need to when you have to be concerned about what your wife and her White family thinks about our agenda."

In a viral video, Johnson challenged anyone to, "Show me a snow bunny who gonna say she had some of this chocolate milk with her vanilla cookies... Show me the snow bunny who said 'Dr. Umar gave me some of his chocolate milk with my vanilla cookies.'"

Someone took him up on the challenge and filmed Dr. Umar chatting with a non-melanated woman at New Jersey's Cherry Hill Mall.

The video went viral on June 2, garnering over 4 million views. Dr. Umar immediately took to social media to defend himself.

"Yes, I was at Cherry Hill Mall today," he tweeted. "My iPhone crashed last night and the closest Apple store with an available appointment today was in Jersey. As I was leaving the mall, I stopped at a kiosk to view the incense & crystals. That non-afrikan woman is simply the vendor."

But someone pointed out they are in the food court - and there are no incense kiosks in the food court.

To the casual observer it seemed that Dr. Umar was giving the young lady his phone number.

Dr. Johnson tweeted: "Can't even grab some incense and oils at the mall without Negroes going crazy. Any conscious Queens out there wanna volunteer to handle shopping for King Kong Kongalicious since I'm obviously too popular to shop in peace? The paparazzi won't let me breathe, ladies."

He then pleaded with the Twitter user to take the video down.

Tariq Nasheed couldn't resist taking a jab at Dr. Johnson.

"Is that the Prince of Pink Toes?

"I'm a descendaaaaaaaaaant... of Tiger Woods."

ABC's employees are outraged after the network dismissed demands to fire Whoopi Goldberg for saying the Holocaust wasn't racist.

More than six million Jews were murdered across Europe during the Holocaust between 1941 and 1945.

On Monday, The View co-host claimed the Holocaust was not "about race" because Nazis and Jews were both white.

She then doubled down on the claim on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday night.

On Tuesday, she returned to The View and apologized on-air before interviewing the CEO of The Anti-Defamation League about anti-Semitism.

"I misspoke," the 66-year-old comedienne and TV host said. "It was about race. I stand with the Jewish people, as I always have."

A senior ABC News source told DailyMail.com that staff are "stunned" by the network's refusal to fire Goldberg.

Conservative comediennes Diamond & Silk noted the network was so quick to fire comedienne Roseanne Barr over racist comments towards Valerie Jarrett.

Goldberg, born Caryn Elaine Johnson, is convinced she is Jewish. "My mother did not name me Whoopi, but Goldberg is my name," she said. "It's part of my family, part of my heritage, just like being black... I just know I am Jewish. I practice nothing. I don't go to temple, but I do remember the holidays."

She also said, "people would say 'Come on, are you Jewish?' And I always say 'Would you ask me that if I was white? I bet not.'"

Whoopi's mother, Emma Johnson, reportedly said the family's slave name was "not Jewish enough" for Goldberg to become a star.

A criminal investigation is currently underway at a franchise Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant in Missouri where a racist sign was posted in the window.

The sign announced the restaurant was under new management and it reserves the "right to refuse service to white people."

"This restaurant is under new management and will reserve the right to refuse service to white people.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Signed, General Manager, Mason."

Local news reporter Russell Kinsaul took a photo of the sign and posted it on his Facebook page, where it spread quickly.

White customers are scarcely seen in Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurants which primarily serve Black communities.

After the sign went viral, it was removed from the window and replaced with another sign that read: "Sorry For The Inconvenience. We’re Closed For The Day We Will Be Back Tomorrow."

Popeyes corporate office issued a statement that read:

"We have been made aware of the situation and are investigating the matter immediately. This type of behavior does not align with our brand values and we take such allegations very seriously. The franchise is cooperating with local authorities regarding this ongoing investigation."

According to Fox affiliate KTVI-TV in St. Louis, local police believe someone may have affixed the sign to the window "unbeknownst to the business".

1973 Coca-Cola advert

Coca-Cola cast the blame for its "be less white" diversity training materials on Linkedin.

Coca-Cola faced massive public backlash to its diversity training course that encourages Coca-Cola employees to "try to be less white."

On Friday, an activist shared slideshow images in a YouTube video from the company's online anti-racism training. The slides included tips to Caucasian employees on how to be "less white, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant and more humble."

"[W]hite people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white," one of the slides read. "Research shows that by age 3 to 4, children understand that it is better to be white."

A spokesperson for the soft drink company confirmed the course is "part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace," according to MSNBC.

The spokesperson noted that "the video circulating on social media is from a publicly available LinkedIn Learning series and is not a focus of our company's curriculum."

Conservative activist Candace Owens was among the outraged Twitter users who lashed out at Coca-Cola.

"If a corporate company sent around a training kit instructing black people how to 'be less black', the world would implode and lawsuits would follow," she tweeted. "I genuinely hope these employees sue @CocaCola for blatant racism and discrimination."

Another Twitter user wrote: "Try to be less black. Try to be less Asian. Try to be less Indigenous. Can we say that? No? Then why can Coca Cola tell their staff to be less white?"

Terry Crews

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."

Former child star Raven-Symoné apologized for her latest statements mocking the black community.

"My comments about discrimination have spun out of control," Raven-Symoné wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday. "I'd like to begin by saying that I was not attacking a specific race, but repeating a name that was said in a viral video which has received over two million likes."

Racist casting call

Universal Pictures is casting black girls for its film Straight Outta Compton, a biopic which documents the rise of rap supergroup N.W.A.

The casting call by Sande Allesi Casting, which reflects the target audience of the movie, grades the women by skin color and whether they wear weave and extensions. "Fine" LSLH women (light skinned with long hair) are graded A/B, while dark skinned women who wear hair weave are graded C/D. Naturally the weave wearers are outraged by the degrading implications of the casting call.
