Trump condemns 'all types of racism' a year after Charlottesville

It’s bad and you should feel bad’ NPR blasted for interviewing white nationalist Jason Kessler

As officials in the U.S. capital of Washington and in the neighboring state of Virginia brace for the first anniversary of a white nationalist rally that exploded in deadly violence, U.S. President Donald Trump Saturday issued a plea for unity.

Last year's protests in Charlottesville on August 11 saw hundreds of neo-Nazi sympathizers, accompanied by rifle-carrying men, chanting white nationalist and anti-Jewish slogans while wielding flaming torches - scenes reminiscent of racist rallies held before the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s. Trump was widely criticized for his response, in which he said "both sides" were to blame for the violence, equating the white nationalists with the counterprotesters.

"We must come together as a nation", Trump wrote on Twitter from his golf club in New Jersey.

Rep. Eljah Cummings on Pres. Trump condemning "all types of racism and acts of violence": "He has not gone far enough". "Peace to all Americans".

Saturday night's rally comes on the heels of the one year anniversary of the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. Members of the Washington chapter of Black Lives Matter were sprinkled through the park, seemingly standing on guard.

At the same time, ancient teeth are seldom preserved, because the cartilage in their make-up doesn't fossilize easily. Philip Mullaly found the set of shark teeth in Jan Juc , a renowned fossil site along Victoria's Surf Coast.

Permits for Sunday's "Unite the Right 2" rally indicated that about 400 demonstrators are expected in Lafayette Square, a park adjacent to the White House.

On Wednesday, Gov. Ralph Northam and the city both declared states of emergency, citing the "potential impacts of events" in Charlottesville during the anniversary weekend.

Susan Bo told counter-protesters to make sure they stay safe at Sunday's event. "It looked like a war zone previous year compared to what it is today". Kessler recently abandoned his lawsuit, but he vowed to press ahead with plans for an August 12 rally in Washington, D.C.

'If you rush to heal, if you rush to everybody grab each other and sing kumbaya, we will be back here in a few years, ' she said. Crowds of white supremacists and counterprotesters clashed before a vehicle plowed into a crowd, killing 32-year-old counterprotester Heather Heyer.

Ryan recalled how a group of students and community members faced off against the white supremacist marchers near a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus, calling it a "remarkable moment of courage and bravery".

It's about the mix, when you have a defensive or attacking moment, and I want every player to improve in this way. The game will start at 13.30 today. "I can not see any way past Manchester City , in terms of who will win it".

There are no official far-right protests planned in town this weekend, but the city's downtown area has been closed to traffic, and the University of Virginia, where hundreds of white supremacists marched with flaming torches past year, is restricting access to parts of its campus.

In addition, two police officers died in a helicopter crash while they were monitoring the protests.

"I will not serve anyone who has any kind of hate in their heart or obvious hate on this weekend or ever", Chef Brian Hill said.

"Cops and Klan go hand in hand", he said.

During an interview this summer, Kessler said he was still "coming to terms" with what happened a year ago and said he apologised to Heyer's family. "This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.
