The highly anticipated Black Panther movie is generating a must-see, gotta-be-there buzz among black Americans, many of whom are making plans to be among the first in line when the movie opens next month in theaters across the nation. “I’ve been looking forward to this movie since I first heard they were making it and that was more than a year ago,” Rashid Darden, a writer and community activist in Washington, D.C. told me.
The oft-repeated idea that there exists two Americas — whether bifurcated into black and white, rich and poor, or Democrat and Republican — takes on a new meaning in the age of Trump. While the nation may indeed be divided by race, income, and politics, the current president is a serial liar, resulting in a new and more ominous national fault line: those who respect verifiable facts and those who, despite all evidence, embrace Trump’s deceit.
For members of tight-knit Haitian American communities across the United States, President Donald Trump’s description of their ancestral homeland as a “shithole” was neither surprising nor out of character for the man many are convinced is a racist. “It’s sad and it’s shameful,” said a forlorn Gepsie Metellus, executive director of the Sant La Haitian Neighborhood Center in Miami, Florida. “That clearly was just another racist statement made by the president.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
