When customers walked into Edeka supermarket in Hamburg recently, they were surprised to find that the shelves were almost empty, and the small handful of products that remained were all made in Germany. It seemed like the supermarket had simply forgotten to restock their produce until customers saw the mysterious signs left around the shop. “So empty is a shelf without foreigners,” read one sign at the cheese counter. “This shelf is quite boring without variety,” read another. It turns out that Edeka, in a rather controversial move, had opted to solely sell German food for a day in order to make a powerful statement about racism and ethnic diversity. As a result, there were no Greek olives, no Spanish tomatoes, and very little of anything else that can normally be found in a typical moder

A bunch of male students have come up with a brilliant way to take a stand against what they consider to be sexist dress codes at their high school. On their first day at San Benito High School in Hollister, California, around 20 girls were sent home for violating the school’s dress code policy, which apparently prohibits off-the-shoulder tops. School administrators had never enforced this rule before, and students had even been allowed to pose for their senior year book pictures wearing shoulder-bearing clothes, so it seemed unfair to punish them for it, especially without warning. The school apparently told students that the dress code policy was to “keep kids safe,” but many students found the rule downright sexist. Because of this, one group of guys decided to launch a protest by comin

The small town of Charlottesville, Virginia, is making international headlines after a right-wing multi-group protest scheduled for August 11th turned shockingly violent. A Fargo, North Dakota man named Pearce Tefft has bravely stepped forward to denounce and disown his son, who identifies as a white nationalist and marched at the fateful Unite the Right rally. “Peter Tefft, my son, is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer,” he writes in a powerful open letter published on August 14th. The Tefft family announcement comes just 6 months after Peter was labelled by locals in his hometown as a ‘Nazi,’ following the discovery of disturbing Nazi Germany-related content he had shared on social media. Though Tefft has refused the title and prefers to be known as a “pro-White activist,” h

The body positivity movement has been in full swing for more than a few years now, yet there are still disagreements on how, exactly, it should be done. A writer named Robbie Tripp recently added to the controversy when he penned a heartfelt letter to his wife, Instagram model Sarah Tripp, praising her ‘curvy body’ and proclaiming her as a ‘real woman.’ Let’s discuss this for a minute.Show Full Text It all seemed sweet enough, and after the post went viral with almost 20 thousand likes, most people were giving the guy a standing ovation.
