"To use a sports analogy, condemning white supremacists should be a layup for any leader," retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster said.
Trump's refusal to explicitly condemn white supremacist groups during Tuesday night's debate follows a similar pattern.
Chris Wallace failed to follow up with Trump in a crucial moment during the first presidential debate, and white supremacists are better off for it.

On Thursday, Ring, the home security subsidiary of Amazon, released a new dashcam embedded with a novel feature called “Traffic Stop” that could help bring more accountability to policing. That could be a powerful thing, especially as tens of millions of people have poured onto the streets in cities across the country to demonstrate against systemic racism, white supremacy, and police brutality. It could also be a privacy nightmare. The Ring Car Cam, which will cost $199, has two cameras: one pointed out the front windshield and one that points toward the car’s interior. The camera can send alerts whenever an event such as a break-in, towing, or accident is detected, and owners can tap into the cameras’ feeds to see what’s happening.... Continue reading…
Mozilla’s browser extension invites user input on YouTube’s algorithm | Mozilla YouTube’s recommendations algorithm can lead you down some very weird rabbit holes, suggesting videos that feel weirdly personal and off-target at the same time. Today, Mozilla will introduce a new browser extension, RegretsReporter, that aims to crowdsource research about users’ “regrettable recommendations,” to let users better understand how YouTube’s recommendation algorithm works and provide details about patterns it discovers. Mozilla started gathering stories from users last year about the videos that YouTube recommended to them; one user searched for videos about Vikings and was recommended content about white supremacy; another searched for “fail” videos and started getting recommendations for grisly videos of fatal car wrecks....

The University of Edinburgh has renamed its David Hume Tower over the philosopher’s “comments on matters of race”.From the start of the new academic year – and until a full review is completed – the tower will be known as 40 George Square, the prestigious Scottish university announced on Sunday. It comes after more than 1,700 people signed a petition demanding the university dropped the name of the 18th century philosopher from the campus building, accusing Hume of writing “racist epithets”. “Nobody is demanding we erase David Hume from history,” the petition reads.“However, we should not be promoting a man who championed white supremacy. That is mutually exclusive with the goal of reducing the harm caused by racism at Edinburgh University to students of colour.“We can take Hume’s writings and learn about them in context, but there is no reason the tallest building on campus should be named after him.” Edinburgh University said the decision to change the name of the tower had been taken “because of the sensitivities around asking students to use a building named after the 18th century philosopher whose comments on matters of race, though not uncommon at the time, rightly cause distress today”. A number of other universities have already reviewed the name of campus buildings and departments linked to problematic historical figures. In July, City, University of London, announced it was renaming its prestigious Cass Business School, which was named after Sir John Cass, the director of a slave trade company. However, the decision sparked a backlash among some business school alumni, who said the name change would devalue their degrees. London Metropolitan University has also rebranded its art school – which was formerly known as the Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design – over the 17th century merchant’s links with the slave trade. Related...
