    George Takei Calls Justice Clarence Thomas A 'Clown In Blackface' Over... - Huffington Post NEW!

        George Takei has come under fire this week for calling Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas a “clown in blackface” over the judge's stance on marriage equality. However, the “Star Trek” actor insists that his comment was not racially motivated. During an interview with Fox 10 Phoenix, Takei, who is gay, discussed the Supreme Court’s recent landmark ruling to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide. Takei said he was “angry” at Thomas, who dissented to the decision, for his position on the issue. “He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court,” said Takei. “He gets me that angry. He doesn’t belong there.” In his dissent, Thomas, who is black, wrote that “human dignity cannot be taken away by the government,” adding: “Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them.” Takei, whose family was held inside a Japanese internment camp during World War II, took issue with this logic. “For him to say slaves have dignity, I mean, doesn’t he know that slaves were in chains? That they were whipped on the back?” Takei said. “My parents lost everything that they worked for in the middle of their lives, in their 30s. His business, my father’s business, our home, our freedom and we’re supposed to call that dignified?… This man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.” In the wake of the interview, Takei has been slammed for what has been called a "racist" comment -- an accusation that the 78-year-old fiercely rejects. On Thursday, he wrote on Facebook: (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));A few fans have written wondering whether I intended to utter a racist remark by referring to Justice Thomas as a "clown...Posted by George Takei on Thursday, July 2, 2015 Takei elaborated on his thoughts in a op-ed for MSNBC. “To say that the government does not bestow or grant dignity does not mean it cannot succeed in stripping it away through the imposition of unequal laws and deprivation of due process. At the very least, the government must treat all its subjects with equal human dignity,” he wrote. “It seems odd that Justice Thomas, as an African American, would be an opponent of marriage equality. His own current marriage, if he had sought to have it some fifty years ago, would have been illegal under then-existing anti-miscegenation laws. I cannot help but wonder if Justice Thomas would have felt any loss of dignity had the clerk’s office doors been shut in his face, simply because he was of a different race than his fiancée.” Thomas is married to attorney Virginia Thomas, who is white. William Shatner, who has been known to “feud” with Takei online, defended his “Star Trek” co-star on Twitter. I am positive that George is not a racist. Let's stop the spin doctoring. https://t.co/LiolPBqufN— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) July 2, 2015 In October 2008, a few months after California became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage (and a few weeks before Proposition 8 made it illegal again), Takei and his longtime partner Brad Altman tied the knot in Los Angeles. The couple have been together for almost 30 years. Watch Takei's interview with Fox 10 below: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    A Long Ago Fourth of July - Huffington Post NEW!

        It was the Fourth of July, 1927. In 23 days I would be 5 years old. A neighbor was having a barbecue and our family was invited. I was told I could stay up late enough to see the fireworks, the fireworks my Uncle Jack was bringing. Unfortunately, Jack was smoking a stogie as he came up the lawn clutching a huge bag of fireworks under his chin. Maybe he opened his mouth to say "Hello," I don't know, but his cigar wound up in the fireworks, and Jack wound up in the hospital. For some reason, I recall the adults that day more clearly than I do the other kids. There were six or eight sets of parents, men I'd not seen in shorts before, one with very hairy legs I thought of mowing. The ladies seemed to laugh more than the men and were louder. That went well, as I remember it, with the colors of their dresses, far more colorful than the menswear around. I recall the parents as quite clubby, but there were two clubs, the men and the women. When they talked together I can hear them excitedly discussing Charles Lindbergh, who had just become the first man to cross the Atlantic alone in his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis.While all of what I described here remains in my memory there is only one split second incident that calls that July 4th, 1927 event to my mind. The backyard where the barbecue was taking place had a bush, or a line of bushes, call it a hedge, maybe three-feet tall. My father had gone into the house for something, for some reason, and as he was returning he faced the hedge and had to go around it. But he didn't. He jumped over it. Or he leaped. Or danced. I don't know if anyone else saw it but I did and it took my breath away. My memory has a dreamy quality in which my father is a combination of Johnny Weissmuller and Jesse Owens with a touch of Fred Astaire. I loved those men as well. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Emile Hirsch Alleged Assault Victim Reveals New Details - Huffington Post NEW!

        PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — A studio executive who authorities say was assaulted by actor Emile Hirsch during the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year described the incident as being "insanely painful and absolutely terrifying," according to public records obtained by The Associated Press. Daniele Bernfeld, an executive for the Paramount Pictures subsidiary Insurge Pictures, told police that Hirsch put her in a chokehold from behind, dragged her across a table and body slammed her to the floor, investigative documents obtained Thursday through a public records request showed. Hirsch said he didn't remember exactly what happened, saying only that she came at him and he was defending himself. Bernfeld was initially apprehensive about pursuing charges the night of the Jan. 25 incident Tao Nightclub in Park City due to the "sensitive nature" of her work and Hirsch's high profile, reports show. She said the next day that she decided to pursue charges because word of the incident, and her name, had already leaked out to the public and media. "I am fundamentally not OK with what happened," Bernfeld said the night of the incident, red marks visible on her neck. "It was insanely painful and absolutely terrifying." Hirsch was questioned and handcuffed the night of the incident, but released and not formally charged until nearly three weeks later. He was charged with aggravated assault and intoxication. The felony assault is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. That night, slurring his words and struggling to balance, Hirsch said he had three or four drinks. He acknowledged "mouthing off" a bit with Bernfeld, but said he couldn't remember exactly what happened. "She started kind of causing a ruckus and I sort of started getting intervening and this happened," said Hirsch. "I don't think it was much more than that to be honest.... I think she had a go at me and I probably defended myself." The 30-year-old from Encino, California has made two court appearances in Park City, but has not entered a plea or made any comments outside court. Hirsch is due back in court in Park City on Aug. 17 at a hearing in which prosecutors will lay out the evidence or, possibly, announce a plea deal. Hirsch's attorney, Neil Kaplan, was not immediately available for comment. He has previously said Hirsch entered rehab within days of the incident. Paramount spokeswoman Katie Martin Kelley was not immediately available for comment either. She has declined to comment previously about the incident. Hirsch was at Sundance for the premiere of the drama "Ten Thousand Saints." He is best-known for his starring role in "Into the Wild" and has also appeared in Universal's Navy SEAL drama "Lone Survivor," Peter Berg's account of a disastrous 2005 military operation in Afghanistan. In the lead up to the attack at the club, Bernfeld said Hirsch was super aggressive and in her face. He told her she was a rich kid who "has never done anything" and was just at Sundance to party. She said Hirsch told her, "Your parents are rich and you don't know what it's like." Bernfeld said she pushed him away, and told him she was a studio executive in town for work and that her mother was a public school principal. Several minutes passed before he came back and blindsided her, she said. "He basically grabbed me at the curve of the elbow, choked me up, threw me across the table, and I felt the front of my throat hit the back of my throat," Bernfeld said in an interview recorded by a police officer's body camera. A waitress told police Hirsch was really drunk and was grabbing Bernfeld's hair and touching her prior to the attack. A friend of Bernfeld who witnessed it told police he and another person pulled Hirsch off of Bernfeld while he was choking her. "I have seen quite a few fights in my life, but this was pretty violent," said the witness, whose name is redacted from the report but is identified as a film director. Bernfeld said she hadn't met Hirsch prior to that night. Hirsch couldn't remember her name after the incident but said he thinks they might have known each other. Before being released the night of the incident, Hirsch said he was surprised by what had happened and told police he tries to stay out of trouble. He said he has a young son and a woman he lives with that he cares about. "I've always respected the law and been a law-abiding citizen," Hirsch said. "To have it bite me is surprising but at the same time, you can never be surprised when dealing with the law." After the officer told Hirsch he had made some poor decisions, Hirsch apologized but asked again what he had done. He seemed unaware of the severity of the situation, telling the officer, "I feel like I could patch it up with her." ___ Associated Press writer Lindsay Whitehurst contributed to this report. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Celebrate Love and Equality at Pride Music Festival in San Diego - Huffington Post NEW!

        The art of change is one that occurs slowly, its early brushstrokes seemingly unclear except to the eyes of its believers. As the painting becomes more complete, a vision begins to materialize, a vision that many saw all along. When true change finally occurs, a masterpiece is unveiled. The United States of America has seen many changes over the past decade, but one of the most colorfully celebrated is the 2015 Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage a constitutional right (which it always has been) nationwide. Pride celebrations began long before this ruling and will continue on long after. However, the timing is impeccable as the pride celebrations are just a little more special this time around. San Diego Pride is proud to present Pride Music Festival, the San Diego region's biggest and most grandiose music festival celebrating diversity and equality. This epic event will unite over 40,000 people over two days from across the nation to celebrate, rejoice, dance, and of course, share love. In addition to being a massive city-wide party, this event also supports dozens of charitable organizations and has raised and donated over $2 million over the years. The surrounding neighborhoods as well as the city and county of San Diego have long supported Pride Music Festival because of its respectful and excellent reputation for safety. Among many other things, Pride Music Festival will feature an open-air art gallery, food trucks, craft beers, spirits and more than 200 exhibitor and vendor booths. There is also a VIP section available which offers a VIP entrance, restrooms, catered food, and four hosted drinks each day. Providing the pulse of Pride Music Festival will be five electronic and live music stages sprinkled amid the lush greenery of San Diego's Balboa Park during the weekend of July 18th-19th. The recently unveiled lineup includes current dance, pop, hip-hop, Latin and many other genres of music such as Emma Hewitt, Late Night Alumni, Mary Lambert, Ruby Rose, Pierce Fulton and Taryn Manning, just to name a few. Even Carmen Electra will be showing her support by hosting the mainstage on day 1, keeping attendees rallied. The 2015 theme is "Liberty and Justice For All," a true call-to-action for equality not just in the U.S., but globally. "It's a memorable experience to unite with thousands of people, taking pride in who you are and celebrating each other," said executive director Stephen Whitburn. "Pride Music Festival is for everyone." Music festivals are currently one of the strongest uniting forces in popular culture. Combining the unity of a music festival and the power of the Pride movement creates a unique and unforgettable experience that will keep this event alive for years to come. Pride Music Festival 2015 will not only be an epic party, but a beautiful moment in history shared even by those who cannot attend. It will represent a time when the voices of millions were finally heard, where full acceptance and equality are not just possible but necessary, and when an entire nation finally shares this same freedom. Under the warm San Diego sun, humans will dance and celebrate together united beneath the banner of love.

    Holly Madison On Her 'Weird' Relationship With Kendra Wilkinson - Huffington Post NEW!

        For years, Holly Madison and Kendra Wilkinson seemed to be part of a secret sisterhood. But a lot has changed since the women ended their relationships with Hugh Hefner, and the former stars of "The Girls Next Door" have opened up about what life was really like at the Playboy Mansion. Madison and Wilkinson have been trading barbs since writing their dueling memoirs, with Wilkinson recently saying Madison published her new tell-all book, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, for "revenge."Madison has her own view. In the above clip from her upcoming interview on "Oprah: Where Are They Now?," she opens up about how her relationship with Wilkinson has changed over the years."Kendra's and my relationship has definitely been weird," Madison says in the above video. "I feel like, over the years, I've known like three different people."When Madison first met Wilkinson, she says she "started off as this girl who seemed nice."Then in 2005, "The Girls Next Door" premiered to huge ratings on E! and Madison and Wilkinson became household names. The breakout hit focused on lives of Hefner's then-girlfriends, Madison, Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt. For five seasons, cameras documented the drama that unfolded inside the Playboy Mansion walls.Madison says Kendra changed into "this girl who's not a girl's girl and is very competitive and pushes away other girls."By 2009, all three women had left the mansion and ended their relationships with Hefner. Wilkinson married former wide receiver Hank Baskett in 2009 and Holly went on to marry Pasquale Rotella in 2013."When she met her husband she was very nice and seemed to have grown into this really different person," Madison says.But once again, their friendship didn't last. "And then later down the road we had a falling out, so it's been all over the place," she says. "I want viewers to pick up the book and read the whole story."Madison's memoir, Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny, is available now."Oprah: Where Are They Now?" airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET on OWN. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Hands-on: Windows 10's latest preview build feels close to finished - PC World NEW!

        It has been quite a week for Windows 10. In the past four days, Microsoft has released three preview builds of its upcoming operating system, and the company plans to keep serving up hot new bits to testers in rapid-fire style in the run-up to the OS’s launch on July 29.After spending a few days with the latest builds, it’s easy to see why Microsoft is increasing its pace of releases, and it’s also easy to see why the Windows Insider Program is needed. Build 10162 (released on Thursday) feels like the most stable and responsive version of the operating system that Microsoft has shipped to date. With less than a month to go until Microsoft starts rolling out Windows 10 to the public, it’s a sign that end users who haven’t taken part in the Windows Insider Program will have a fairly complete operating system to use at launch.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

    Microsoft buries hatchet with Kyocera, ending litigation - PC World NEW!

        Microsoft and Kyocera have put an end to a patent spat that began earlier this year by expanding a patent cross-licensing deal between them.In a tersely worded, four-sentence press release Thursday, the companies said the licensing deal would enable them to use “a broader range of each other’s technologies in their respective products.” Beyond that, the terms were not disclosed.It’s another win for Microsoft’s ongoing practice of seeking patent licenses from Android manufacturers. Earlier this year, the company sued Kyocera because of components that are part of Android that Microsoft says infringe on its patents. Licensing patents related to Android is a big business for the company, which revealed last year that Samsung paid more than $1 billion from July 2012 to June 2013 as part of a patent licensing deal.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
