Americans say blacks treated less fairly in 2015 than 2007: Gallup

A protester wears tape over her mouth during a silent demonstration against what they say is police brutality after the Ferguson shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, by a white police officer, in St. LouisWhites, blacks and Hispanics also expressed a new low in their satisfaction with the way blacks are treated in U.S. society, according to the Gallup 2015 Minority Rights and Relations poll. Overall, about 49 percent of respondents said they were satisfied, compared to 62 percent just two years ago, pollsters said. The survey of more than 2,000 respondents, conducted from June 15 until July 10, comes at a tense time between U.S. law enforcement and the communities in which they operate, particularly after grand jury decisions not to indict white officers who killed unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York City.

Price hopes Bae comes good ahead of Presidents Cup

PGA: RBC Canadian Open-Second Round(Reuters) - Golfer Bae Sang-moon's form plunged over the last few months after South Korea's military ordered him to fulfill his national service obligations, but Internationals skipper Nick Price hopes he can turn it around in time for the Presidents Cup. Bae, who has won twice on the PGA Tour and was granted U.S. residency in 2013, was charged in February with violating national service laws after failing to return home when his overseas travel permit expired. The 29-year-old had hoped the courts would allow him to delay his military service and continue his career on the lucrative U.S. tour but last month the military's case was upheld and Bae accepted the ruling.
