Seems like a lot of guilt and self-loathing to make a video like that. Then again, MTV is showing a documentary about white privilege.

Yeah, that was very disingenuous using "private scholarships" vs. "all scholarships."

Jindal Greatly Expands Gun Access, Says He 'Never Imagined' Mass Shooting 'Would Happen In Louisiana'

Maybe I'm misinformed, but wasn't the shooter from out of state? Did he have a license issued by the state? How did Jindal's gun access law cause this mess?

He mentions the 58-year old white man who opened fire, but can't seem to find the part where Louisiana is 40% Black, and 80% of their homicides by guns are black men.

Nice that some shit blogger is not only still erroneously calling it a mass shooting but is substituting that phrase for what Jindal actually said.

DETROIT (WWJ) – An 8 Mile Road gas station shut down by Detroit Police Chief James Craig after it was caught selling crack pipe kits is back open for business.
Detroit Police Commander Todd Bettison said the owner of the Sunoco station, at 8 Mile and John R, has agreed to certain stipulations — including not stocking any more so-called “set ups” or other drug paraphernalia.
WWJ’s Vickie Thomas reports that Craig, tipped off about the crime while conducting drug raids in the city last week, personally slapped a closure notice on the door.
Detroit police say crack pipes are frequently stocked at gas stations, dollar stores and liquor stores disguised as novelty items — such as small glass vases with roses inside — or a ballpoint pens sold in tubes.
In this case, the “set-ups” were paper bags filled with “everything you need to make a crack pipe” —including a glass tube and a filter.





Good to know Detroit Police have solved all open homicides.

Class assignment,

Read this excellent opinion article by a good writer who was unknown to me,

Antiracism, Our Flawed New Religion


http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/07/27/antiracism-our-flawed-new-religion.html?google_editors_picks=true

John McWhorter is black, so he can say anything, and he does it well.

McWhorter is a respected linguist.

Didn't know that. He's a good writer. Did you read the article?

Not yet but I will. I really respect McWhorter as an independent thinker even though I don't always agree with him.

Didn't feel like necro'ing one of the "female teacher has sex with student" threads.

One of the hottest chicks I went to high school with (at least she was back then) was just caught having an inappropriate relationship with a student of hers. I saw her at a wedding a year ago and she was not happy, I hear because she married to someone she shouldn't have.

From what I hear through the grapevine is that her husband, also a teacher at the same school district, found texts on her phone and alerted the police.

How do you get a "forcible touching" charge from that? I understand that it is a statutory issue and the 16 year old couldn't give consent...but that shit wasn't "forcible"

I'd beat.

forcible touching isn't forced like in rape or inability to consent. It's just intentionally touching a person's intimate parts for your own sexual purpose. It applies to pinching and squeezing. If you walked up to someone and grabbed their ass you cold be charged.

NY has some weird terms for their crimes
