    (CNN)The World Health Organization's director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has suggested that racism is behind a lack of international attention being paid to the plight of civilians in Ethiopia's war-shattered Tigray region.Calling it the "worst humanitarian crisis in the world", with 6 million people unable to access basic services, Tedros questioned in an emotional appeal why the situation is not getting the same attention as the Ukraine conflict."Maybe the reason is the color of the skin of the people," Tedros, who is from Tigray, told a virtual media briefing on Wednesday. In April this year at a briefing, he questioned whether "black and white lives" in emergencies worldwide are given equal attention.Fighting between Ethiopian and Tigrayan forces have left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands facing severe food insecurity, according to Internal Displacement Monitoring Center.Last year, the crisis set a world record for displacements in a single year causing over 5.1 million displacements.Read MoreWHO emergencies director Mike Ryan also hit out at an apparent shortage of concern about the drought and famine unfolding in the Horn of Africa, and the ensuing...
    As he first publicly sought donors for his family foundation, and privately began weighing the possibility of making a third run for the Oval Office, former Vice President Joe Biden was more than a little rusty at fundraising. “You all look dull as hell, I might add,” Biden told a group of would-be donors at a Biden Foundation event in 2017. “The dullest audience I have ever spoken to. Just sitting there, staring at me. Pretend you like me!” Five years and more than $1 billion later, Biden and his team still haven’t quite gotten the hang of keeping donors happy. Texts go unanswered, advice goes unheeded, and outreach from the president’s senior advisors is, in the words of multiple organizers and fundraisers, “nonexistent.” But with Democrats staring down the barrel of a potentially historic defeat in the midterm elections in November, fundraisers frustrated both with the administration’s failure to achieve its policy goals and its steadfast refusal to keep them in the loop are slowly thawing their icy attitude towards the White House—if only to save the country. “There...
    On the heels of the news that former World Series Most Valuable Player and Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Dave Stewart will lead a Diverse Equity Ownership Initiative for the Music City Stars baseball organization, Stewart told The Tennessee Star that George Floyd’s murder is one of the reasons why the new initiative exists. “Baseball has been – for as long as the sport has been played – it’s been owned, it’s been run by people other than minorities,” Stewart told The Star. “Unfortunately, the George Floyd murder brought attention to a topic that really needed to be addressed by mostly white people in America – and that is what are we practicing in our daily lives, and are we really recognizing the fact that we don’t open ourselves to people other than ourselves?” “And that actually could be – it can be open to both sides – both blacks and whites,” he said. “Are we really opening ourselves up to people other than ourselves?” Stewart noted that the reaction from white MLB executives in the wake of Floyd’s murder was visceral....
    (CNN)As the nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court has ignited a discussion about the historic lack of diversity on the nation's highest court, her ascendance has also renewed focus on the absence of Black judges on the federal judiciary's lower courts.Of the 3,852 people who have been confirmed as federal judges, a CNN analysis of data from the Federal Judicial Center shows that only 240 of them -- 6% -- have been Black. Just 71 of them have been Black women. More than three-quarters of all the judges have been White men. And while strides have been made in recent years to improve the demographic makeup of the federal bench, the judiciary still skews dramatically toward White, male judges, especially when compared to the rest of the country. Almost 80% of all Article III judges -- the federal judges who are nominated by a US president and confirmed by the US Senate -- are White, and 71% are men, with large gaps persisting in Latino, Black and women's representation in the federal courts, the data shows, despite...
    Kevin Costner's 'non-woke' Yellowstone was the most watched show or movie in America last week with more than 8 million people tuning in to the season four premier last Sunday.   The runaway popularity of the 1883 period ranch show, streaming on Paramount put it over heavyweight favorites like 60 Minutes and NCIS Los Angeles, which had 7.5 million and 5.3 million views, respectively.  The premier also ranked in second place in Digital Entertainment Group's Top 20 streamed movies or shows last week, losing out to the film Free Guy, while previous Yellowstone seasons also placed at the 11th and 19th spots.   Although Yellowstone is often compared to HBO's Succession - they came out the same year and are both family-business dramas - it breaks the mold for hit series as it's based not on the East or West coasts, but in Montana. It is shot in Utah. And unlike shows like Succession that play up current drama in the Big Apple or Los Angeles, Yellowstone avoids modern-day issues and political correctness conflicts, and instead puts a lens on rural, 1880s...
    TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Nagashiki Shipping said on Friday the grounding of one of its large bulk carriers that caused an ecological disaster in Mauritius was due to a lack of safety awareness and a failure to follow rules as it pledged better training and oversight. The findings were assumptions based on interviews with crew members, the company said. A bulk carrier owned by Nagashiki and chartered by Mitsui OSK ran aground on a reef in Mauritius in July and began leaking oil, causing an ecological disaster in the pristine seas around the Indian Ocean island. Four people died when a tug sank during attempts to retrieve oil in the ocean. The crew of the MV Wakashio, a nearly 300-metre Cape Size bulker used for carrying iron ore, changed direction to sail close enough to Mauritius to get cell phone coverage after also changing a set course two days earlier, Nagashiki said in a statement. "There was a lack of awareness of the dangers of navigating close to the coast ... and insufficient implementation of regulations that must be observed...
    RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) — Forty-year-old Antonio Valenzuela’s death didn’t spark widespread protests like George Floyd’s. In fact, the police killing of Valenzuela drew little attention outside the American Southwestern city just north of the U.S.-Mexico border. The details about Floyd’s death, a 46-year-old Black man, who died in May at the hands of Minneapolis police closely resembles that of Valenzuela, a Mexican American man, who was killed in Las Cruces, New Mexico, three months before global protests and outrage. Like Floyd, Valenzuela died from a choking maneuver during an encounter with an officer after a struggle. As national Black Lives Matter demonstrations grow, Latino activists are joining the multiracial protests while trying to draw attention to their deadly police encounters, some of which go back decades. Latino advocates and families of those killed by police say they aren’t trying to pull the focus away from Black lives, but want to illustrate their own suffering from policing and systemic racism. Activists say cases from Phoenix to Springfield, Massachusetts, point to patterns of violent interactions by police against Latinos...

    The Andalusian Audiovisual Council (CAA) tugs at the autonomous channel, Canal Sur, in its latest report for the coverage of this coronavirus crisis, in which it has received multiple complaints about the lack of impartiality and objectivity in various practices not recommended by its code of ethics.
