In the initial media churn, they were nearly missed. But a small band of Hebrew Israelites, members of a historic but little-known American religious movement, may actually be at the center of a roiling controversy that has gripped the nation in recent days. It began with a now-viral video clip, filmed Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, in which high school students from a Catholic school in Kentucky appeared to be in a faceoff with a Native American elder, who was beating on a drum. The boys, some wearing red hats with President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, appeared in the clip to be mocking the man, a Vietnam veteran named Nathan Phillips.

Viet Nam News By Trọng Kiên Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates delivered a presentation on toilets in China last week, but the thing that grabbed headlines was a prop he used: a clear canister of human excrement. Even those unimpressed by the stunt couldn’t help but talk about it, which is probably a win for Gates, who has spent some of his fortune to raise awareness of sanitation and provide clean and working toilets in developing countries. The story broke in Việt Nam to high praise, with most being impressed by the fact that a man of immense wealth was not shy from humbling himself to help the less advantaged. The same week, the Việt Nam Toilet Association was launched by Vietnamese businessman, Lê Văn Hiệp – a long-time champion of proper latrines in … [Read more...] about Time for the nation to pull up their pants and deal with the toilet problem
