Mark Zuckerberg spent the first 13 years at Facebook trying to connect the world. Now he's focusing on how to stop the world from breaking apart. In a nearly 6,000 word manifesto published Thursday, Zuckerberg writes candidly about how Facebook's mission for "building a global community" is contrary to the current political trend toward nationalism in the U.S. and abroad. "When we began, this idea was not controversial," Zuckerberg writes in the post. "Yet now, across the world there are people left behind by globalization, and movements for withdrawing from global connection."
I am not sympathetic to the white voters who make over $50,000 a year and said that ‘We are going to vote for Trump.’ Those people I am not sympathetic to, and I do not believe that you have to open your heart to them. If you are a person of color in this room, if you are a woman in this room, you do not have to open your heart to them.
People are going to die because of what happened. And if we don’t start there, we cannot have a conversation. People’s lives are on the line now, and it’s time we get real about that.
Hundreds of protesters faced off with police in the French city of Rennes, Saturday, during a march against police brutality.
Intense police presence dominated the city's town centre, as surrounding roads were blocked by police forces.
Police blocked roads and threatened to use tear gas against protesters, with scuffles breaking out between officers and demonstrators.
The protest was part of a series of anti-police brutality rallies being held across France, with thousands in attendance. They were instigated by news that a French policeman was charged with the rape and abuse of a young black man, identified as 'Theo', during a routine ID check, on February 2.
Police reportedly sexually abused the victim with a police baton during an arrest in a Paris suburb.
No country is more committed to accepting foreign migrants and refugees than Sweden, taking in over 160,000 asylum seekers in 2016, as a result, rape and violence have since skyrocketed. Ami Horowitz, a journalist and filmmaker, took a close look at Sweden's refugee crisis and examines what 'extreme vetting' really means.

A book has been published entitled Can I Tell You About Gender Diversity?, aiming to teach children as young as seven about gender diversity and transgender issues.
The book tells the story of Kit, who starts the gender transitioning process with hormone treatment at the age of 12.
Author of the controversial work, CJ Atkinson, appeared on Good Morning Britain to discuss the book with Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid. When asked if a book like this needs to be given to school children Atkinson explain it is important to open up how people talk about identity terms.
Atkinson said: “We are assuming that all seven year old kids are not transgender, there is still the opportunity for them to learn that there are some people in the world who feel like this.”
When asked about her own identity Atkinson identified herself as gender queer “existing between male and female.”
Leftists on social media tore into First Lady Melania Trump, mocking her accent and religion and branding her everything from a hostage to a whore – all for the secular offense of reciting “The Lord’s Prayer.”
Melania Trump began President Trump’s rally Saturday in Florida by delivering the prayer, which Christians – many of whom recite the prayer in church each week – believe was first said by Jesus Christ. The crowd at Orlando-Melbourne Airport received the prayer enthusiastically.
Left-leaning social media users were a different story, however.
“Melania starts the dictatorship rally with the Lord’s Prayer? NOT EVERY AMERICAN IS CHRISTIAN!!!! Country over party,” tweeted @JaimePrimak.

When a TCU-area rental house was gutted last week, just before it was to be sold, the owners had lots of questions.
Thinking burglars had destroyed the house and taken all the fixtures, they called Fort Worth police to report the crime. Their plight — remarkable in part because of the thoroughness of the burglars, who took appliances, toilets, furniture, cabinets, shutters, doors, molding and even the doorbell — made the news in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Worse still, owners Lee and Lelia Beckelman, of the Houston area, had a contract to sell the house at 2736 Forest Park Blvd. Their son had lived there with roommates while he attended TCU, but he moved out in August and the last roommate left in October.
Their real estate agent found the place gutted Feb. 9. Essentially all that remained were walls, bathtubs and some of the flooring.
But as it turns out, the whole episode was an honest mistake.
As Fort Worth police were beginning the investigation, they got a phone call from a contractor who explained what happened, said Fort Worth Police Department Sgt. W.D. Paine.
The contractor told police that the man who owned a house at 2700 Forest Park Blvd. hired him to gut it, Paine said. When the contractor and crew arrived at the street, they saw what appeared to be an address on the curb, “2700 Forest Park Boulevard,” directly in front of a house.
The crew didn’t notice that the numbers on the house said 2736, not 2700.
“It was a huge misunderstanding,” Paine said.
“The problem is this, you have a lot of folks who are either career members of the intelligence community who are skeptical of the current situation or who were at one point political appointees who have burrowed themselves into the infrastructure who are now career intelligence officers,” he said.
Shaffer said it is evident that there are people who are embedded in the current administration that have retained loyalties to past administrations. This causes them to “[judge] for themselves what they should or should not do regarding intelligence.”
“The same mentality where you’ve seen people leaking is the same mentality you see people holding information,” he said.

THE ongoing trouble in Paris which has led to riots in some parts of the capital is spreading across France as vigilantes stage running battles with police in protest of the rape of a young black man.
And law enforcement say two weeks of civil unrest has now led to frenzied clashes in 20 districts.
Worryingly about 60 per cent of those involved in the street fights are children, police say.
As well as serious crime in at least 16 northern Paris suburbs, the confrontations have spread to Nantes in Brittany, Lille - the capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, and Rouen in Normandy where catholic priest Father Jacques Hamel was murdered while he was saying mass the altar last summer.
Police have been targeted with molotov cocktails, filmed being chased with cars, hit with steel poles, shot at, and even targeted using heavy metal balls from the French game Petanque. One person is even accused of using a gun, and has been charged with gunfire and voluntary violence.
Armed officers have taken to the streets in their hundreds and were forced to fire live rounds of bullets and used tear gas to disperse the rioters.
Chaos erupted after it emerged police anally raped a young black man named Theo with a baton.
The scandal, which has seen four police officers charged, sparked a series of legal protests. But a number a violent, illegal protests have also taken place, with trouble now nearing its third week.
Hundreds of cars have been torched, shops and banks smashed up, and even a disability vehicle was destroyed. A coach full of tourists from South Korea was targeted in northern Paris on Tuesday while a neighbourhood close to one of the busiest train stations in the city Gare Du Nord which houses the Eurostar train network was also hit.
Local reports suggest the popular Marais district in central Paris was also the scene of angry outbursts yesterday.
The north central Île-de-France region has been rapidly deteriorating with police confirming the violence is getting worse each night, according to broadsheet Le Figaro.
They also say those out in the streets appear to be teenagers as opposed to an older crowd who initially started the violence.
A dozen workers at a Catoosa restaurant are without a job after getting fired for skipping work as a show of support for “A Day Without Immigrants.”
The restaurant workers are all Hispanic and say it was important to them to participate in the national protest.
But they didn’t think it would cost them their jobs.
“They feel like they’ve been unfairly terminated," said a friend, translating for the employees.
The group worked at I Don’t Care Bar and Grill in Catoosa. They talked to us after they were fired for not showing up to work. They asked us not to show their faces or give their names.
“(They’ve) been working there for almost two years since the restaurant opened," said the friend.
The group willingly chose to stay home with others across the country, supporting “A Day Without Immigrants.”
“(They’re) upset they stood for something they felt was necessary so the community would stand together, and they got terminated for that," said the friend.
The six are part of a group of 12 kitchen staff let go.

A 19-year-old man charged with first-degree murder in the death of an 11-year-old girl who was shot in the head was beaten at the courthouse by another alleged murderer.
Antwan C. Jones, who was charged with the shooting of Takiya Holmes, was sitting in Leighton Criminal Courthouse in Chicago on Wednesday.
Surveillance video appeared to show him taking a nap while awaiting a bond hearing, when another prisoner, Renard Williams, 24, suddenly ran over to him and began pummeling the suspect with his fists. Surveillance video captured the odd scene.
Jailers said they had no idea why Williams took it upon himself to beat Jones, as they know of no connection between the two or between Williams and Holmes.
However, the community in general was outraged by the shooting of the little girl, which happened when Williams allegedly opened fire on rival gang members, and helped police identify the suspect.
However, it’s not even known if Williams knew who the sleeping prisoner was.
‘We don’t know one way or the other,’ said said Cara Smith, chief policy officer for Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, who runs the jail, according to DNAInfo.
