Charlottesville Schools, Parents Address Children's Fears After ViolenceWhen white supremacists began rallying in downtown Charlottesville last weekend, Liz Licht kept the TV off, trying to shield her three kids from the hate spewed on the streets of this normally quiet college town.
But after learning that a 32-year-old woman who joined a counterprotest had been killed by a man described as having neo-Nazi sympathies, Licht could no longer keep news of the violence from her 9-year-old son and 7-year-old twins.
"Our son went to bed scared that night," Licht said.
Racial Politics Haunt Republican Party in Trump Era
The statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, was the focus of an emotional debate in the state's Republican primary election weeks before it became a flashpoint in the nation's struggle over race.
Corey Stewart, an outsider candidate for governor sometimes compared to President Donald Trump, seized on possible removal of the Confederate general's memorial as an "attempt to destroy traditional America." Stewart, who said in an interview Tuesday that such an action "hits people in the gut," found unexpectedly strong support, forced his main opponent to defend the statue and almost won.
Trump Blames Both Sides for Racial Violence at Virginia Rally
President Donald Trump on Tuesday vigorously defended what many say was a weak initial statement condemning Saturday's deadly racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying there is enough guilt and blame on both sides.
Trump's critics say it took him two days to use the words neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists when condemning the riots that left a young woman and two Virginia state policemen dead and dozens hurt.

High-tech US Plants Offer Jobs Even as Laid-off Struggle
Herbie Mays is 3M proud, and it shows -- in the 3M shirt he wears; in the 3M ring he earned after three decades at the company's plant in suburban Cincinnati; in the way he shows off a card from a 3M supervisor, praising Mays as "a GREAT employee."
But it's all nostalgia.
Mays' last day at 3M was in March. Bent on cutting costs and refocusing its portfolio, the company decided to close the plant that made bandages, knee braces and other health care supplies and move work to its plant in Mexico.
Oops? Trump Retweets Critic Saying 'He's a Fascist'President Donald Trump appears to have mistakenly retweeted a message from one of his critics saying "he's a fascist."
Trump deleted his retweet Tuesday after about five minutes, but not before the message sent to his 35 million followers racked up a big response.
Trump seems to have been trying to draw attention to a Fox & Friends article on a possible presidential pardon for former Phoenix-area Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of a crime for ignoring a U.S.

UN Urges US to End Detention of Immigrants, Asylum-seekers
A U.N. human rights panel urged the United States on Monday to end widespread detention of would-be immigrants including asylum-seekers, saying the practice has "grown exponentially" and violates international law.
The holding of migrants and would-be refugees in custody is often "punitive, unreasonably long, unnecessary and costly" and should be used only as a last resort, the panel said in a 23-page report to the United Nations Human Rights Council.
