    They came as slaves: human cargo transported on British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children. Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. Some were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives. We don’t really need to go through all of...

    ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Police say a fearful 11-year-old Georgia girl who took a knife to school told officers she needed the weapon to fend off clowns. The Athens Banner-Herald reports the girl was arrested Friday at Burney-Harris-Lyons Middle School in Athens amid reports and social media posts about clowns frightening children in Georgia and other states. An Athens-Clarke County police report states the girl said she needed the knife to protect her and her family because she had heard the stories about clowns jumping out of the woods and attacking children.

    Life has a way of testing your mental strength when you least expect it. The true sign of mental strength doesn’t lie in what you do; it’s what you don’t and absolutely won’t do. The greater the challenge, the more difficult it is to respond with mental fortitude. It’s hard to be mentally strong, especially when you feel stuck. The ability to break the mold and take a bold new direction requires that extra grit, daring, and spunk that only the mentally strongest people have. Thomas Edison provides an interesting example. When his factory burned to the ground in 1914,...

    In the leftist realm of insults, there’s nothing more cliche than calling one’s enemy “Hitler.” Aside from how lazy it is, a socialist-leaning leftist calling anyone else “Hitler” is rich. Ironically speaking. For election 2016, creative-insult-deprived leftist twits have familiarly reached into their bag of tricks, comparing Donald Trump to “Hitler.” The etymologically-challenged even call Trump “Literally Hitler.” Gawd. Except no. If there’s a candidate whose polices resemble Hitler’s, it isn’t Trump. It’s Hillary. Yes, really. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7LWJaBFIFw

    HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Donald Trump will hold a rally at the Millis Center on High Point University's campus Tuesday. It starts at noon and the doors open at 10 a.m. "This has sparked such a debate amongst the students that it's been really awesome to see," says Julia Fiedler, a sophomore at HPU. That debate is not over Trump's economic plan or his views on immigration. Instead, it's about whether he should even be allowed on campus. "I'm a little disappointed in High Point University for allowing him to be here because I think of this environment as one...

    University of California, Berkeley administrators on Monday reinstated a Palestinian history class amid an outcry over its suspension last week. The school’s social science dean announced in letter to faculty that the ethnic studies class was reinstated after the teacher revised the course description. Social science dean Carla Hesse suspended “Palestine: A Colonial Settler Analysis” after receiving a complaint from Jewish and civil rights groups that the course syllabus appeared to describe a politically motivated, anti-Semitic class. Hesse suspended the class, saying it wasn’t properly vetted to ensure it wasn’t espousing a single political viewpoint. The suspension triggered protests from...

An initiative launched by the university’s Faculty Senate Gender Inclusivity Task Force urged faculty members to politely quiz students and colleagues on how they prefer to be addressed: as he, she, ze, zir or hir. “When introducing yourself, offer your name and pronoun,” it advised, suggesting they start off lectures with: “I am Professor Jones and I use she/her/hers pronouns.

    As a Gonzaga student and a journalist, I am very confused about the hiring of Dr. Melissa Click to work in the communication studies department. Our mission statement says we are devoted to social justice and encouraging ethical discernment, reflective thought and leadership. So I am wondering how this decision keeps with our Catholic, Jesuit and humanistic heritage. Click is someone who attempted to stifle the coverage of protests regarding racial inequality by trying to stop professional and student journalists from spreading the news of what was happening at the University of Missouri. I question her motives and ethical discernment...

"We did it and we did it TOGETHER!" Assemblywoman Angela McKnight, who led the effort to name the Kennedy Boulevard school after the president, wrote on Facebook last night after the vote. If the renaming is formalized next month as expected, Obama would be the second president whose name graces a Jersey City school. Lincoln High School is named for the nation's...

    At a meeting Wednesday night, residents of Saint-Denis-de-Cabanne reacted angrily to news that migrants are to be housed in a waterfront castle that serves the French town as a holiday centre. The meeting followed a leaked document which revealed that, with the so-called “jungle” camp at Calais due to be demolished, the French government is planning to disperse migrants across the country. Between 50 and 100 migrants, none of them families, are due to arrive in the town of less than 1,300 people in November. Residents of Saint-Denis-de-Cabanne, near Roanne in the Loire, were informed of the arrangements via a...

    Rice didn't beat Baylor on the football field when the two Texas schools met Friday night. But that didn't stop the school's marching band from having a little fun at their rival's expense during halftime. The Marching Owl Band mocked Baylor for the multiple sexual assault allegations that rocked the program earlier this year. The furor led to the firing of head coach Art Briles, as well as the demotion, and the eventual resignation, of university president Ken Starr.

Any law that applies to the American people will also apply to Congress Thus, they will be subject to Obamacare, social security, medicare (no gold plated benefits that the rest of us pay for but can’t afford for ourselves) and numerous regulations that now only apply to the little people. 4.

    In a city where the majority of the 8.4 million inhabitants are people of color, it is important that such diversity is reflected in New York City classrooms. Diverse cultures, perspectives, and realities are the backbone of our great city, and increased understanding of the rich diversity in our city affects every aspect of our daily lives. Yet, far too many young people in our City—especially young men of color—will never see someone who looks like them at the chalkboard.

    When people are given two names, Jonathan and Elizabeth, and asked who is a doctor and who is a nurse, the respondents typically say that each is equally likely to be in either profession. But experiments based on how quickly people link the names with the jobs reveal that people's brains run on stereotype: The individuals are much more likely to associate Jonathan, a man, with doctoring, and Elizabeth, a woman, with nursing. This kind of implicit association, or subconscious pairing based on stereotype, is well-known in psychology. But now, researchers find that even after people are directly told that...

Faith Green Timmons of the Bethel United Methodist Church. Trump respectfully responded, “Oh, oh, oh, OK, that’s good. Then I’m going to back on Flint. OK.” Trump visited Flint, Michigan on Wednesday...

It goes on to explain: “Some Americans find his rhetoric alarming, but it follows a long tradition of anti-immigrant public discourse.” Subsequent panels trace hostility to immigration from Benjamin Franklin in the mid-18th century, to the...

"But I was just using the bathroom," he said, "I went in and left." What was important for Grimm is that using the boy's room felt natural to him.

A half-dozen people clustered around, betting, figuring out the game. New people walked up, others left. Some happy tourist won $20. Easy money.

One made a statement to the effect that a win by Trump would simply be unacceptable and action would have to be taken. We are at the breaking point, literally.
