American Voices: Sperm Whales’ Use Of Language Points To Evidence Of Culture

A new study in the journal Nature Communications has found that sperm whales communicate using vocalized dialects specific to organized clans, a social act that offers evidence of a shared culture within which the whales learn new things and adopt behaviors from one another. What do you think?

Chanel West Coast Screams Police Brutality, Black Twitter Points Out The Obvious [Photos]

Chanel West Coast was reportedly a raging drunk last night in West Hollywood, when she was arrested for fighting, kicking and punching a cop following a separate brawl with a club-hopping female. Now that the booze has subsided in her system, the stalwart Young Money artist is suddenly an activist against police brutality.

“I was assaulted by police last night for no reason and have bruises all over my arms,” Chanel West Coast cried on Twitter, posting photos of the bruises she allegedly suffered during her tussles. “Police have gotten out of fucking hand in this country!!! This shit ain’t a race issue its a cop issue!!!! Time to put an end to this!!!”

Naturally we did some digging to revisit Chanel West Coast’s prolific thoughts on the McKinney, Texas incident, but unfortunately came up empty. The Los Angeles native is mostly known for her role on MTV’s Ridiculousness as well as public outbursts (see this year’s Coachella).

“I was violently held by 2 huge men cops last night for nothing and have bruises all over my arms…Can someone explain why a tiny 5’3 98lb women needs 2 men officers to hold her down and bruise her arms????? Last night I witnessed police brutality first hand and I’m completely outraged. There are real criminals out there and I’m getting arrested?,” she continued.

Black Twitter didn’t let Chanel West Coast’s bellyaching slide and they let her have it. Check out the bruises and the backlash in the gallery.

Black College Student Earns Coon Points By Defending Confederate Flag

Black University of South Carolina student Byron Thomas has become somewhat known for his passionate defense of the Confederate Flag and its use as the flag within the state. Thomas doesn’t think the flag represents the state’s well-documented racist past and doesn’t want to see it removed despite recent developments.

Thomas, who has been making YouTube videos for years about the Confederate Flag and his supporting views, was a guest on CNN and spoke with host Hal Gorani. Gorani challenged Thomas stances, making certain to mention not only the flag’s ties to slavery but the fact alleged Mother Emanuel AME Church shooter Dylann Roof displayed the flag on his website.

Thomas, who hangs the flag in his home, explained that his support comes by way of an ancestor who fought in the Confederate Army and that the Confederacy actually awarded its Black soldiers pensions after the war in its losing effort.

While that certainly seems noble, someone needs to let young Thomas know that long after the Union Army defeated the Southern forces, many there didn’t want to do away with the practice of slavery. Then the divisive Jim Crow segregation laws came forth and upended any hope of true racial harmony.

Somewhere, we believe Thomas has a point buried under his well-stated but somehow majorly-flawed reasoning. From this standpoint, it looks like Thomas is blind to history and facts.

Check out the video from CNN below.
