In St. Paul, the majority white capital city where Castile grew up, voters last November elected Melvin Carter the first black mayor in its 160 year history, who ran on issues of police reform and minority inclusion.

We’d always assumed that there was something quite affectionate in a celebrity nickname and never that it was something that managed to irritate them. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been fondly dubbed ‘Brangelina’ by the world since they came out as a couple. They’re both pretty serious actors, while Angie is an ambassador for UNICEF, but you don’t hear her fussing over her ‘tacky’ nickname..
This is not a word. Now, we have no problem with making up words (if a particular scent can only be described as “fartalicious,” we reserve the right to call it so).
