    Four Frankfort Men Jailed After Alleged Tinley Park Road Rage Attack The men denied attacking a driver but video showed otherwise, police said. By Joseph Hosey (Patch Staff) March 24, 2015 The four men, along with a 16-year-old, were in a Chevy Tahoe that pursued a 21-year-old man and his girlfriend into Tinley Park, police said. The Elabeds and the other driver then reportedly headed over to the Tinley Park Police Department to accuse each other of wrongdoing. The Elabeds claimed they were actually “threatened and followed by (by the other driver) and his girlfriend,” police said, and while at...

    Shockingly, a fight broke out between Somali Muslim students on Friday, two days after a student posted a social media image of a wheelchair-bound girl whom posters claimed to be affiliated with the Islamic State (ISIS). A student is reportedly being “disciplined” for the photo–meaning he or she will be given a reprimand and will be allowed to roam society freely without restriction or inhibition after inciting jihad against America. Jeff Oxton of the St. Cloud Police Department reassured media that the angry, alien mob will not be punished, and police were on hand not to arrest lawbreakers, but to “keep the situation calm”...

    A reader sent me a copy of the cover of the new University of North Georgia continuing education catalog asked with this question, “Are they crazy?” It’s a valid question given the awkwardness of the image and its pairing with a headline that asks, “Why follow when you can lead?” The illustration features two exultant white men — dressed like missionaries for some reason — well ahead of a woman in heels wearing what looks to be an ensemble from “Dynasty” and a black male in more casual attire who appears to be struggling to finish the race. I thought...

She is a 94 year-old woman who was murdered in Meridian, Mississippi on March 1. Based on the complete lack of press coverage outside of the immediate area, it's reasonable to believe that the nation's journalists don't think, in the popular parlance, that "her life mattered" all that much.

Police say a female patron complained to Chuck E. Cheese’s employees in Parma, Ohio, about the photo booth not working, and that a manager told her she had to wait. Then, police said, one of the male party attendees followed the manager into the kitchen, threatened to kill him and began to attack. “I’m characterizing this as an attack on the employees of...

It's titled "Diversity & Inclusion – Love Has No Labels" and will make you sick with its advocacy of perversity. Worse yet, they recruited young children for this campaign.

    The Redding Record-Searchlight ^ | February 26, 2015 | Dick Meyer
    “The Republican Party as we know it cannot survive,” according to Emory University political scientist Alan Abramowitz. Note the caveat: “as we know it.” The Republican Party we know today can barely get 20 percent of the non-white vote in presidential elections. That kind of political party can’t survive precisely because it is the non-white population that is growing, much faster than the white population. By 2044, the United States will be a majority-minority country; there will be more non-whites than whites. The word “minority” will probably be mothballed by then. Unless the GOP can figure out how to stop...

Ethnic ancestry was often neither easily identifiable nor readily commensurate with class status, and so gave way to a more popular term: “diversity.”

    A student who was born female felt perfectly comfortable identifying as a man at Wellesley College — until people said he shouldn’t be class diversity officer because he is now a white male. Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him. And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome...

    The incoming 114th Congress is much more Christian than the national population. Despite deep divides in political ideology, lawmakers in the 114th Congress share other important beliefs with their colleagues in the previous Congress. These beliefs aren't rooted in the tangible, rough-and-tumble world of Capitol Hill, though—they're in the spiritual realm. When the incoming GOP-controlled Congress is sworn in Tuesday, the ranks will remain overwhelmingly Christian. That's a continued divergence from the American public, which includes more religious minorities, such as Hindus and Buddhists. According to a Pew survey released Monday, 91.8 percent of the 114th Congress subscribes to varying...

The planned study, which will look at the success of minority and women-owned firms in winning contracts, was part of a package of cuts tentatively approved Monday by the council. The 7-6 vote, which also targeted spending on the convention center, home ownership and clean energy programs, would allow the city to reduce a proposed tax levy increase from 2.4 percent to 2.2 percent.

    A scene at a Florida school between a large, intimidating black student and a seemingly unprovoking white student drew references to Ferguson this week. A video of the teens at Vanguard High School in Ocala, was posted toLiveLeak.com, showing the abhorrent behavior. An unidentified student, began aggressively verbally assaulting and pushing another as the much smaller kid sat quietly, ignoring the behemoth ruffian. The instigator became more agitated, even pushing the head of his victim, while his voice hit Celine Dion like octaves. “This is what leads to things like Ferguson,” wrote the unidentified person who uploaded the video.

    Nearly a century ago, Harvard had a big problem: Too many Jews. By 1922, Jews accounted for 21.5 percent of freshmen, up from 7 percent in 1900 and vastly more than at Yale or Princeton.

Lawrence Lowell, warned that the “Jewish invasion” would “ruin the college.” He wanted a cap: 15 percent. When faculty members balked, he stacked the admissions process to achieve the same result. Bolstered by the nativism of the time, which led to sharp immigration restrictions, Harvard’s...

    The Fox 9 Investigators learned that of three men recruited from Minnesota to fight for either ISIS or al-Shabaab all once held jobs at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, and each hold security clearances that gave them access to parts of the airport a traveler will never see. When exactly these men were radicalized is unclear. The good news: It doesn't appear the airport was ever their intended target. The bad news: Experts fear that scenario may be just a matter of time.

    (CNN) -- A Sikh student at Hofstra University filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the United States Army, claiming the service refused to grant him a religious accommodation that would allow him to enlist in his school's ROTC program without shaving his beard, cutting his hair and removing his turban, according to court documents. When Iknoor Singh requested a religious exemption from the military's grooming policies to enlist as an ROTC cadet in April 2013, his request was first denied on the grounds that his noncompliance would have "an adverse impact on the Army's readiness, unit cohesion, standards, health, safety, or...

The administration will also release a report on the work it has done to help minority women and girls.
