CNN: We Are All White Women Aged 18-26 Now

leave a comment »

Would CNN give a front page story and nearly 1250 words to describing the parents’ defense regarding a black person or other racial minority accused of murdering someone? I’m guessing no.

But when a white girl is accused of it? Stop the presses, let’s get a full story from the parents on how they raised her. It makes me sick.

Finally, A Proposal to Fix Our Problematic School System

NYT:

If Merry Susan Hyatt has her way, every public school pupil in California will have the voter-approved right to sing “Joy to the World” in the classroom.

Ms. Hyatt, 61, a substitute schoolteacher, is the chief proponent of a proposed California ballot initiative that would require the state’s public schools to offer Christmas music during the holiday season.

I don’t really care if this outrageous  or if it is Constitutional or what not. It just strikes me that this is a terrible use of resources.

Why is anyone spending money on proceedings of what holiday songs kids sing at public schools? This is fucking absurd.

The best part:

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a Jewish child in one of my classes,” she said. “If so they never said anything.”
