WHITE SUPREMACY. Anti-gay Iowa Rep. Steve King says white people have contributed more to western civilization that other ‘subgroups’: “‘This ‘old white people’ business does get a little tired, Charlie,’ King said. ‘I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out, where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about, where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?’ ‘Than white people?’ Hayes asked, clearly amazed.”

OP-ED. The IOC should ban Russia from the 2016 games over doping scandals: “The McLaren Report says Russia and its athletes are not to be trusted, that instead of promoting clean sport, as Russia signed on to do as a major player in the Olympic world, it has become the new East Germany.
