    (CNSNews.com) - The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 changed the nutrition requirements for school lunches and breakfasts, but the U.S. Agriculture Department says the law also gives schools the flexibility to prepare meals that are "familiar to kids from culturally diverse backgrounds."Blogging at the USDA website on Wednesday, Dr. Katie Wilson, deputy undersecretary for for food, nutrition and consumer services, hailed the nation's "diversity" of people, ideas, and culture: "One of the way culture is expressed is through the foods we eat," she wrote. "Our nation's school meals should be no exception." Wilson said she recently participated in one...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/18/2015 | NewsMachete
    While I question his authenticity, there is no question that Donald Trump is doing a great service to Republicans by taking on topics that were formerly untouchable.  The most prominent, of course, is illegal immigration, but now Trump has taken on the Silicon Valley moguls who are pushing for more legal immigration, which displaces American workers. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg has funded an organization called "Fwd," which is reminiscent of MSNBC's unintentionally homoerotic "lean forward" motto.   Zuckerberg started a public interest group called Fwd.us to push for immigration and lobbying reform along with Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Yahoo CEO Marissa...

    The Daily Mail ^ | 16 August 2015
    A University of Alabama sorority has been slammed for their recruitment video which critics are saying is racially-homogeneous and lacks diversity. Alpha Phi, who are based at the Tuscaloosa campus, uploaded the footage to YouTube and it has since been viewed 500,000 times. But some have accused them of selling themselves on looks alone while one writer has said they are doing more damage to women than presidential candidate Donald Trump. The very glossy and professional film includes the group of 72, mostly-white, members partying and attending events inside their sprawling sorority house.

    This analysis is by Michael Lipka, an editor focusing on religion at Pew Research Center. The nations population is growing more racially and ethnically diverse and so are many of its religious groups, both at the congregational level and among broader Christian traditions. But a new analysis of data from the 2014 Religious Landscape Study also finds that these levels of diversity vary widely within U.S. religious groups. We looked at 29 groups including Protestant denominations, other religious groups and three subsets of people who are religiously unaffiliated based on a methodology used in our 2014 Pew...

    A national women's organization is challenging Gov. Bruce Rauner's appointments to the Illinois Tollway, saying he is violating state law by creating an all-male board. Over the past three months, Rauner has named five male directors and re-appointed another to the nine-member Tollway board, which already included three men. In addition, Rauner backed Greg Bedalov as the agency's new executive director. Bedalov replaced Kristi Lafleur, who had held the post under the tenure of former Gov. Pat Quinn. The National Council of Women's Organizations is charging that Rauner is violating the Illinois Gender Balanced Appointments Act. The 1991 law is...

The rest of the nation wasn’t exactly pleased with the idea either, but it did raise some interesting questions. One of the biggest among those was the puzzle of exactly how the federal government plans to figure out precisely how many people in each racial pigeonhole are living where and how they are interacting.

    Have you ever noticed that you never see signs that say "Tolerate Diversity?" The reason for that is simple. No one wants to be tolerated. Tolerance presupposes a moral judgment. In other words, I must first judge you negatively before I decide to put the judgment aside and tolerate you. And no one has any tolerance for even a momentary act of judgment these days. Just ask the owners of Sweet Cakes, an Oregon bakery that refused to bake a cake for a lesbian couples pretend wedding. They were recently fined $135,000 for being willing to tolerate but not actively...

    Apparently university administrators no longer read George Orwell because they dont seem to recognize how Orwellian their policies are. Speech codes are almost never identified as such by the many colleges and universities that impose and enforce them. Instead, speech codes come in many forms, often with innocuoussounding titles: free speech zone policies that limit student or faculty expression to small, remote areas of campus; email policies that ban offensive communication; civility policies that mandate politeness on pain of punishment; andmost commonlyoverbroad, vague harassment policies that rely on subjective, amorphous definitions and thus restrict vast swaths of protected speech, Greg...

    Surveillance video of a wee-hours ruckus at a Macon Wal-Mart on Sunday shows a teenager race inside flashing gang signs ahead of a mob of four dozen or so people who burst in and smashed merchandise. The commotion, which caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, appears to have been planned. Some in the crowd also snatched a man, apparently a shopper at the Zebulon Road store, from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor, Bibb County sheriffs officials said Monday. The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the stores main aisle about 1:50...

    A while back we discussed a proposed plan which Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was preparing to roll out. The goal was apparently to use public funds to impose a bit more diversity on neighborhoods by improving lower income neighborhood properties while mandating more low cost, public housing in wealthier areas. The response around here was, shall we say, less than enthusiastic, but hey this is just one small corner of the interwebs, right? Perhaps the rest of the nation sees this as a wonderful opportunity and an idea whose time has come round at last. Lets check in with...

    The sex-trafficking ring in Rotherham may well be the worst in the West ever, or so one would hope. British officials have now identified at least three hundred suspects in a crime syndicate that raped and trafficked underage British girls for years, while local police ignored signs and clues for years: At least 300 possible suspects have been identified by investigators probing the Rotherham child sex exploitation scandal. The National Crime Agency (NCA) said most of the potential suspects were Asian men, while the vast majority of victims were young British girls. The NCA launched a major investigation into the...

    TEMPE, AZ - A Mexican National has been accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl at a church in Tempe.

He then, according to documents, asked the officer if he could go back to Mexico once the interview was finished.

    Love the smell of flop sweat in the morning? That might have been the aroma wafting off Roosevelt Island today as Hillary "kicked off" her campaign [whatever happened to "you only get one chance to make a first impression?" Guess Hillary doesn't use Head & Shoulders.] On MSNBC's Weekends with Alex Witt today, two reporters painted a picture of a crowd that was smaller than hoped for, not overly enthusiastic, and problematically pale.

    New York City's top cop is demanding a retraction after he was quoted by a news article saying the NYPD has a hard time hiring black officers because "so many of them have spent time in jail," according to a published report. The Daily News reports that Commissioner Bill Bratton has called on the Guardian to retract the story -- which bears the headline "NYPD chief Bratton says hiring black officers is difficult: So many have spent time in jail, -- because his comments were taken out of context from another story published by the British news outlet about the...

    President Obama is pressing forward with regulations to diversify wealthy neighborhoods and critics of the idea havent been shy, calling out the idea as ridiculous and an irrational way of advancing the White Houses own vision of a utopian society. The rules, coming from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, could withhold block grants to communities if they dont build enough so-called affordable housing in wealthy neighborhoods, the Hill reported.
