1. Washington Redskins Learn That Racist Team Names Can't Be Trademarked
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has decided to revoke the racist trademark for the Washington Redskins due to the fact that the football team’s racist brand is "disparaging to Native Americans." The team, however, remains free to keep their racist name and logo in the absence of a trademark. They'll just have to share it with the world.
I love when people defend the Washington Redskins name because it means they don't think about their opinions, so I don't have to either.

2. Emma Stone And Andrew Garfield Trick Paparazzi Into Not Being A Complete Force For Evil
