Portland Hero Meets With Teenage Girl He Stood Up For

Micah Fletcher survived a stab wound to the neck last week when he stood up to an attacker who was harassing two teenage girls on a train in Portland, Oregon.

Two other men, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, who also came to the girls? aid, were stabbed and killed.

Fletcher has said he is still trying to make sense of what happened. 

On Wednesday, the 21-year-old got the chance to meet with Destinee Mangum, one of the girls he was injured defending, and her family. Mangum?s mother, Dyjuana Hudson, posted about the experience on Facebook, calling Fletcher an ?angel? and a ?hero.? 

?Finally got a chance to meet one of the angels that saved my daughter?s life,? she wrote. ?Micah is one of the best genuine hearted people you will ever meet.?

In an emotional interview, Mangum told Fox affiliate KPTV this weekend that she wanted ?to say thank you to the people who put their life on the line for me, because they didn?t even know me.? 

?They lost their lives because of me and my friend and the way we looked,? Mangum continued. ?I just want to say thank you to them and their family, and I appreciate them, because without them we probably would be dead right now.?

Fletcher was one of three people stabbed after confronting a man on a MAX train for verbally attacking Mangum, 16, and her 17-year-old-friend, who is Muslim and was wearing a hijab. Police arrested Jeremy Christian, who has ties to white supremacist groups, soon afterward.

Fletcher, a student at Portland State University, told USA Today on Tuesday that he?s still ?healing? from the May 26 attack. ?I got stabbed in the neck on my way to work, randomly, by a stranger I don?t know, for trying to just be a nice person,? he said.

On Wednesday, Fletcher released a video on Facebook thanking supporters for an outpouring of kindness and money, but adding that there?s a problem that needs addressing. 

?We need to remember that this is about those little girls,? he said. ?I want you to imagine that for a second being a little girl on that MAX. This man is screaming at you. His face is a pile of knives. His body is a gun. Everything about him is cocked, loaded and ready to kill you.?

He noted that there?s a ?white savior complex? present in society that has placed all the focus on the three men who stood up to Christian, rather than addressing the daily, lived experience of racism and Islamophobia that young people like Destinee and her friend face.

In a statement during Christian?s court hearing on Tuesday, Fletcher said: ?I want the Muslim community to know that they have a home here in Portland and are loved.?

The 21-year-old is also a poet and has written pieces about Islamophobia in the past. Oregon Live reported that Fletcher won a 2013 poetry competition for two pieces of work: one that dealt with the blame rape victims face and another focused on the prejudice leveled at Muslims in America after the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Trump Backers Share His Animosity Toward The Media, Poll Shows

As President Donald Trump continues his crusade against what he brands ?fake news,? 60 percent of those who voted for him view the media as their ?enemy,? according to a new Huffpost/YouGov poll.

That?s up from the 51 percent of Trump supporters who gave that answer in a February survey.

Overall, 25 percent of Americans in the new poll say the media is an enemy to people like themselves, with 19 percent calling it unfriendly. Just 17 percent label the media friendly and 13 percent view it as an ally, with 26 percent not sure.

Those figures are similar to the ones in the February poll.

The latest survey follows a string of recent anti-press incidents. Four journalists were either manhandled or arrested while reporting in May, and a Kentucky newspaper?s windows were shattered.

Trump, who often lashed out against journalists during his presidential campaign, has continued to do so as president. On Wednesday afternoon, his campaign texted backers a fundraising appeal including the phrase, ?FAKE NEWS is the enemy.?

As noted in February, the rating scale ? ally, friendly, unfriendly, enemy ? is one YouGov typically uses to measure Americans? views of foreign countries rather than the Fourth Estate. But the metric seems newly appropriate for domestic use given Trump?s attitude toward the press, as well as record levels of political animosity.

Indeed, 49 percent of Republicans consider the Democratic Party to be the ?enemy,? while almost the exact same number of Democrats ? 48 percent ? say that about the GOP.

As for attitudes toward Trump, 40 percent of Americans consider him an ally or a friend to people like themselves, with 16 percent considering him unfriendly and 27 percent an enemy.

 

Ill-feelings from the contentious election linger, with 86 percent of Trump voters saying Hillary Clinton voters are either the enemy of people like themselves or unfriendly. Among Clinton?s supporters, 81 percent apply one of those characterizations to Trump voters.

This Artist Will Draw Your Portrait If You Share Your Darkest Secret

Philippines-based illustrator Terence Eduarte takes the kind of secrets people would be wary to tell their closest friends and illustrates them for the whole Internet to see.

The art project ? called 100 Days of Secrets ? started two months ago, when the 24-year-old artist asked his friends to share their secrets in exchange for a portrait. Since then, he?s received secret submissions from Instagram followers from around the world. 

The resulting works explore complicated, knotty personal issues, from learning of a parent?s extramarital affair:

To confessions about catfishing:

In an interview with HuffPost, Eduarte said he was taken aback by strangers? willingness to open up to him. 

?I think the project has become an outlet for people to let out thoughts and feelings they normally wouldn?t tell anyone,? he said.

Some people tell Eduarte they?re just thankful to have a sounding board for their secrets, regardless of the portrait. 

?A lot of people who have written to me said they really didn?t mind if I?m not able to include them in the project,? he said. ?They just wanted to share their burden with someone.?

Donald Trump Reportedly Plans To Withdraw From Paris Climate Deal

President Donald Trump plans to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, multiple outlets reported Wednesday. This would make the United States one of just three countries outside the historic pact to reduce planet-warming emissions.

Trump pledged during his campaign to ?cancel? the deal, but delayed a decision for months amid a split in the administration on the issue. But in recent weeks, the camp opposing the accord apparently convinced the president to abandon it ? despite few political advantages and harsh economic and diplomatic consequences.

Under the terms of the deal, the U.S. cannot officially withdraw until November 2019. But even an announcement that the country is looking to leave the deal shows that the White House has no plans to meet earlier targets for slashing greenhouse gas emissions.

That much was already clear. In March, Trump ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to review the Clean Power Plan ? a sweeping regulation passed by former President Barack Obama to limit emissions from the utility sector, by far the country?s biggest emitter. The policy was already stayed by the Supreme Court in February 2016 as a result of a lawsuit filed by former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who is now Trump?s head of the EPA. Without the Clean Power Plan, the U.S. wouldn?t even come close to meeting its goals laid out in the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Trump vowed to jumpstart the U.S. economy by eliminating environmental regulations he blamed for holding back companies. In particular, he positioned himself as a staunch advocate for fossil fuels, nixing climate change funding from his proposed budget and scrapping rules that discourage pollution and boost renewable energy. But, somewhat ironically, major oil, gas and coal companies ? along with a plethora of other big corporations ? urged Trump to keep the U.S. in the Paris Agreement.

Environmental groups have little legal recourse given that the Obama administration bypassed the Senate to ratify the deal, arguing it did not constitute a treaty. But the Trump administration is still required to regulate carbon dioxide emissions as a public health threat under a 2007 Supreme Court ruling. How it plans to fulfill that legal responsibility that is unclear.

Quitting the Paris Agreement strikes a major diplomatic blow to the U.S. Only war-torn Syria and Nicaragua, the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, are not included in the accord. Retreating from the agreement, which the U.S. took a lead role in brokering, brands the nation as a ?rogue country? and a ?climate pariah,? diplomats said. Without a seat at the table, the U.S. loses leverage over policy action on global warming, and cedes influence to rival superpower China, which has vowed to support poorer countries? efforts to adapt to climate change.

?Who cares?? Myron Ebell, a top climate change denier who led Trump?s EPA transition team, told HuffPost on Tuesday ahead of the announcement. ?If countries are moving in the wrong direction, I don?t think the leader of that movement has much to look forward to. It seems to me that President Trump has a chance to not only turn the direction of the country around but the direction of the world around. Good luck to China.?

Who cares? … It seems to me that President Trump has a chance to not only turn the direction of the country around but the direction of the world around.
Myron Ebell, a top climate change denier who led Trump?s EPA transition team

Yet few credible, peer-reviewed scientists believe manmade climate change isn?t a major problem, and a growing number of investors are already pouring money into transforming the energy economy.

The economic effects of leaving the Paris Agreement would likely be devastating. The U.S. is poised to lose access to fast-growing clean energy markets as Europe, India and China gain major footholds in an industry estimated to be worth $6 trillion by 2030. Countries that tax emissions could now put a tariff on American-made imports, complicating Trump?s plans to reclaim the U.S. mantle as a top manufacturing hub.

?It?s very clear that the energy economy is heading in a direction that, if you don?t engage with climate change, you?re going to miss out on a large number of jobs that have already emerged,? David Waskow, director of the World Resource Institute?s international climate program, told HuffPost before the announcement. ?Withdrawing and retreating would have very negative implications for the U.S. economically.?

It?s unclear what Trump gains politically from the withdrawal. The deal had overwhelming support. Sixty-one percent of Americans said the country should remain in the deal, while just 17 percent support withdrawing and 21 percent aren?t sure, according to a HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted earlier this month. And more than 400 U.S. cities, 37 states, 800 universities and nearly half of all Fortune 500 companies have already set their own clean energy and emissions targets.

‘Wonder Woman’ Lassos A 96 Percent Rotten Tomatoes Rating

We were psyched to see the Gal Gadot?led ?Wonder Womanreceive positive early buzz on Twitter ? and now that full reviews are here, the praise keeps pouring in.

Entertainment Weekly called the WWI-set superhero film ?smart, slick and satisfying,? while USA Today dubbed it ?the best movie … DC Comics has put out in its own cinematic universe.? Meanwhile, Mashable writer Angie Han praised director Patty Jenkins? handling of the complicated titular character, someone who ?needs to be optimistic but not naive, fierce but not frightening, unquestionably good but not tragically boring, intriguingly alien but not totally inhuman,? ultimately deciding that Gadot and Jenkins get the balance ?exactly right.?

As of press time, the film?s Rotten Tomatoes rating sat at an impressive 96 percent.

?Wonder Woman? isn?t without its detractors; in its review, The Guardian called Gadot?s character a ?weaponised smurfette? in the tangles of a ?silly plot.?

But all told, it?s a super-sized sigh of relief for superhero fans ? and Warner Bros. executives.

While Marvel titles have scored big with franchise hits ? most recently, ?Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? ? DC titles have failed to reach the same critical acclaim in recent years. Using Rotten Tomatoes ratings as a benchmark, other films in the DC cinematic universe did not impress: ?Batman v Superman? (2016) earned 26 percent, while ?Suicide Squad? (2016) leveled off at 25 precent. ?Man of Steel,? out in 2013, did slightly better at 55 percent.

As EW pointed out, the ratings also put ?Wonder Woman? ahead of Marvel films like ?Iron Man,? ?The Avengers? and ?Guardians of the Galaxy.?

Early reviews of ?Wonder Woman? are significant beyond the fact that it seems DC has avoided another flop. They?re a clear statement that female directors can successfully helm a major action film. (That shouldn?t really be a question, but it?s 2017 and Jenkins is the first woman to direct a Marvel or DC superhero film, so here we are.)

While male directors can generally weather a box office disaster and still continue their careers, the dearth of opportunities given to women behind the camera ? especially for big-budget projects ? means that all eyes inevitably fall on the rare female director who breaks through. And if she missteps, suddenly a whole gender, rather than an individual, becomes a risky choice.

?On the one hand I?m shocked that [female filmmakers are] such a rarity, [and] I?m super grateful that I?m the person who gets to do it, but on the other hand, I only got here by not thinking about that at all,? Jenkins said of her career in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. ?I got here by assuming that I could do what I wanted if I was willing to work hard enough to do it.?

After her last film, 2003?s ?Monster,? Jenkins had said that she wanted to helm a Wonder Woman film for over a decade. She finally became involved with the project in 2015. 

For Jenkins, showing respect for Wonder Woman?s deep resonance with audiences was paramount. The director even took steps to ensure that the film avoided an R rating, so that young girls would be able to see a character who represents strength to women around the world. 

?Wonder Woman? is out June 2.

George Takei Dismantles Racist, Sexist Criticism Of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

CBS released a trailer earlier this month for its upcoming ?Star Trek: Discovery,? the first television series in the franchise since ?Star Trek: Enterprise? ended in 2005. 

The trailer excited many fans, but it also led to a familiar anger, as many people decried the casting of Michelle Yeoh, an Asian woman, as the ship?s captain and Sonequa Martin-Green, a black woman, as the ship?s first officer.

The trailer for ?Star Trek: Discovery?

?Enough with your racial and gender quotas Hollywood,? one commenter wrote. Many others wrote similar comments, much of it even more vile. 

On Sunday, George Takei, who played the iconic character Hikaru Sulu in the original ?Star Trek? series and multiple movies, joined MSNBC?s ?AM Joy? to discuss the views of people who believe the Star Trek franchise is being tainted in an attempt to diversify the cast. 

On the show, he quickly and swiftly dismantled the criticisms, exposing the critics as ignorant of the intentions of creator Gene Roddenberry.

?Today in this society we have alien life forms that we call trolls,? he said. ?And these trolls carry on without knowing what they?re talking about and knowing even less about the history of what they?re talking about.?

?Now these so-called trolls haven?t seen a single episode of the new series, because it hasn?t been aired,? he continued. ?And they don?t know the history of Star Trek [either] ? [Star Trek creator] Gene Roddenberry created this with the idea of finding strength in our diversity ? and also the delight of life in diversity.?

He then added: ?We had a guiding acronym ? IDIC ? which stood for infinite diversity in infinite combinations. We boldly went where we hadn?t gone before because we were curious about what?s out there. And when you go out into space you are going to have even greater diversity.?

During the interview, Takei also compared the ignorance of these ?trolls? to the recent actions of President Donald Trump, whom he described as ?ignorant? when it comes to issues of Japanese internment, which affected Takei?s family during WWII.
