For starters, it gets your blood up about the toxic and enduring power of racism. Based on the true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American cop on the Colorado Springs police force, the film shows how Ron managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan and righteously screw with it from the inside.

The international trade secretary Liam Fox is once again baying for BBC blood, claiming the public broadcaster has nothing positive to say about Brexit.

She was confused, like many people, as to why it took so long for Baldwin to get his blood up about the six-month-old episode, not to mention at a loss as to what exactly he was offended by. Baldwin pointed to a recent New Yorker piece in which it was revealed that Bourdain wanted "no white people" in his Houston episode. Bourdain responded to the story directly on Twitter. "This is some shameful, dishonest race-baiting click bait. All involved should take a hard look in the mirror," wrote Bourdain, linking to the PaperCity piece himself.
