The Battle Lines Grow Clearer

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today because our country is dying. It’s hard to say exactly when it fell sick. Was it in the 1960s? Maybe the 1860s? Was it infected from the start?

One thing is certain: On May 25 last year, the patient took a serious turn for the worse. A white man kept his knee on the neck of a black man for just a few minutes too long, and the country went insane. Of course, if a single act could set off the worst looting and arson in American history, it means anything could have set it off. The madness was already deeply embedded in our circumstances.

These were a new kind of riot. Blacks didn’t just burn down their own neighborhoods as they always have. They sacked the most fashionable retail districts in the country: The Magnificent Mile in Chicago, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, Fifth Avenue in New York.

‘Anne Boleyn’ show writer: ‘We wanted it to feel fresh and different’ on AMC+

Call it a new spin on an old story.

The three-part period drama “Anne Boleyn,” premiering on AMC+ on Thursday (Dec. 9), showcases the famous doomed Queen’s story in a different way — with Jodie Turner-Smith, (“Queen and Slim”), a British actress of Jamaican descent, in the lead role.

“We wanted to make sure the world of our Tudor court didn’t look exactly like period dramas that we’d seen in the past,” series writer Eve Hedderwick Turner told The Post.

“Because it is such a well-known period of history and Anne’s story itself has been really well covered, we wanted to make sure that it felt fresh and alive and different. And also, reflective of our society today — so that hopefully we would attract new audiences who maybe didn’t see relevance in watching a story like this previously.”

Vincent Pinkney charged with murder in fatal stabbing of Columbia student

An ex-con was charged late Friday for an alleged stabbing rampage that left a Columbia University student dead, an Italian tourist wounded and a lawyer reeling from what he described to The Post as a terrifying, silent attack in Central Park.

Vincent Pinkney, 25, was awaiting arraignment on a slew of charges, including murder and attempted murder, for Thursday night’s bloodshed.

The 5-foot-5, 140-pound Manhattan man — a reputed gang member, according to law-enforcement sources — stayed mum as he was walked out of the NYPD’s 26th precinct in upper Manhattan Friday night and escorted to a waiting car by detectives.

At the vehicle’s open door, Pinkney, who wore a white Tyvek suit and mask, was asked by reporters if he had anything to say — and replied “yes” before standing silently.

He then continued to stand there for at least 30 seconds, staring down reporters and then shaking his head, until cops ushered him into the back of the car.
