Robert E. Lee Elementary School was ravaged by a fire Tuesday evening in Tampa Heights. The explosive flames occurred around 7pm, which is when firefighters rushed to the scene, according to Tampa Fire Rescue spokesman Jason Penny. Officials don´t believe the fire to be suspicious, however they are still investigating the cause of the inferno. (Snip) More than half of the school’s students are African-American, which has led the members from the Hillsborough County School Board to discuss a potential name change. Robert E. Lee was the commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia during the American Civil War.
Comments: A blaze purely coincidental. I´d suggest naming it in honor of Weather Underground firebomber/guy in the neighborhood/ghostwriter Bill Ayers, but that´s off the table cuz he white. Last line in the clip above is comical, as few students there would have any idea of who Robert E. Lee was, other than as someone bearing the original sin of melanin deficiency.
That is right, the General "Stonewall" Jackson Elementary School! YES! Morons, you can´t rewrite history or attempt to make it go away just because you don´t agree with it! The Snowflake Express needs to cool their PC jets! The Bolsheviks of 1917 have suddenly reappeared as the Bolsheviks of 2017!!!
Giants co-owner John Mara feels the way many of the fans of his football team do: He’s not pleased with the end-zone antics of Odell Beckham Jr. “I do not want to get into a discussion about this,” Mara told The Post in an email Tuesday morning, “but I will say that I am very unhappy with Odell’s behavior on Sunday and we intend to deal with it internally.” Beckham scored two touchdowns in the Giants’ 27-24 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. After the first he crawled on all fours and hiked his back leg, mimicking a dog urinating
Almost half of the individuals suspected of a recorded crime in Berlin last year were individuals who don’t have a German passport, the latest police statistics show. The proportion of crimes carried out by immigrants rose to 45 per cent last year, a five per cent increase from 2015, when they comprised 40 per cent of crimes committed in the German capital. (Snip) According to police statistics released earlier this year, foreigners commit crime at three and a half times the rate of Germans, with the crime rate of asylum seekers around seven times that of Germans. For violent crime,
Enrollment at the University of Missouri continues to crater in the wake of the November 2015 race protests, with this year’s incoming class down 33 percent from the one two years ago. Official figures released by the school Wednesday put the freshman class at 4,134 ? up from the university’s initial estimate of 4,009. But enrollment is still down 546 from the fall of 2016 and 2,060 from the fall of 2015. Total enrollment is down nearly 13 percent since 2015. (Snip) “In hindsight the $1 million penalty associated with forfeiting the game against BYU would have paled in comparison to
A stadium worker with nearly three decades of NFL games under his belt quit his job Sunday, saying he was “pushed” to the limit after several Buffalo Bills took a knee during the national anthem. Erich Nikischer said he’s putting the few good years and “a lot of the bad ones” at New Era Field behind him after several Bills took a knee before Sunday’s 26-16 win against the Broncos.

Hillary Clinton called out the Trump administration Sunday for its response to the devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. “President Trump, Sec. Mattis, and DOD should send the Navy, including the USNS Comfort, to Puerto Rico now. These are American citizens, Clinton said in a Sunday tweet, referring to the Department of Defense, Secretary James Mattis and a US Navy ship that serves as a medical facility. The White House has not returned CNN’s request for comment on Clinton’s remark. The Pentagon is on the ground in Puerto Rico, dispatching members of the Army Corps of Engineers’ 249th Engineer Battalion,
“Are football fans voting with their TVs?” asks a new Rasmussen Reports survey. “As the NFL struggles to explain this season’s downturn in viewer ratings, 34 percent of American adults say they are less likely to watch an NFL game because of the growing number of protests by players on the field,” the poll reports, noting that 12 percent say they are more likely to watch, while half say the protests have no effect on their viewing decisions. “Interestingly, there’s little difference of opinion on the protests and NFL viewing habits among whites, blacks and other minority adults,” the poll
John McCain revealed his doctors gave him a ´very poor prognosis´ when he first found out about the rare and aggressive brain cancer that he continues to battle. The Arizona senator said his doctors told him at the time that his condition was ´very, very serious´. ´So I just said, "I understand."

The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably. Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein. Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took a knee on the floor of the House tonight during a special order by the Congressional Black Caucus focused on rooting out racism and defending the First Amendment. "Someone had the lack of judgment to provoke the situation and call their mothers a name," Jackson Lee said of President Trump using "son of a bi*ch" last week to refer to NFL players who knelt during the National Anthem in protest of racial injustice. "I refuse to accept that as a standard of leadership for the highest office in the world -- and even if
CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,
At a Friday rally in Alabama, President Donald Trump criticized football players who protest during the national anthem: Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b-tch off the field right now. Out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’ (Snip)Here are five reasons the NFL anthem protests are not going as well as the media would like to think. 1. Vague And Unclear Protest Goals One of the keys to a good protest is to have a clear goal. If the discussions on Sunday were any indication, nobody is entirely clear
A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing. The crowd, which had booed as the visiting C
