Apple News App - delete racial justice section?

Post by dualstow » Thu Aug 13, 2020 6:21 am

I can’t find much in the official Apple support forums.
Does anyone know how to remove the Racial Justice section with the black square?
Any way to hide it?

This is like Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia. You are required to read the information that the state propaganda ministry puts out.

Hopefully trying to do that isn't enough to get you fired or charged with a hate crime....

I hope for all our sakes this is a safer, if not safe, space! So far, all the people who have been fired because of social media posts did so under accounts in which their identities were public, e.g. facebook. Anyone know of any cases in which forums like this, where your identity is not made public, have resulted in people being prosecuted or fired?

In the meantime maybe we should brush up on techniques used by Chinese citizens to "comment" on social media without getting caught. Like, putting their own words into the famous Star Wars opening scene with a written paragraph zooming into the distance.

Covid 19

If you have an Android phone, go under Settings, then GOOGLE settings and it’s there.
If you have an iPhone, go to settings, privacy, then health.

Further, you can’t even turn on the option without choosing to install a participating app which activates the exposure notifications, the outlet reported.

What about

Did you hear the new COVID joke? Pretty much everybody gets it, but it only really kills with 0.03% of the audience.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.
