Huge fire guts Robert E. Lee
Elementary School in Tampa amid
rumors it will be renamed due to
Confederate General controversy

Daily Mail [UK], by Michelle Ganney

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 9/13/2017 1:16:11 PM

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.

It´s too bad it has come to this. It´s beginning to look like a real race war is simmering.

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.

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

Arauca, Colombia — At a squat, concrete brothel on the muddy banks of the Arauca River, Gabriel Sánchez rattled off the previous jobs of the women who now sell their bodies at his establishment for $25 an hour. “We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” he yelled over the din of vallenato music. “All of them showed up with their degrees in hand.” And all of them came from Venezuela.

President Trump said Sunday night that his tax cut plan is completed and will result in “the largest tax cut in the history of our country.” “We have a tax plan that is totally finalized,” Mr. Trump told reporters. “This is a plan for the middle class and for companies so they can bring back jobs.” Republican House and Senate negotiators and the administration are expected to roll out the details of the tax relief plan this week, with Mr. Trump scheduled to travel to Indiana on Wednesday to promote it.

A Brooklyn principal accused of bringing grade-fixing to new heights has resigned, but was given another six-figure job, city officials said. Marc Williams, after less than two years as principal of the Secondary School for Journalism in Park Slope, quit amid an investigation of course-credit schemes exposed by The Post in July. A teacher said Williams turned a blind eye when a student got a passing grade in a course by taking online tests — with help from a classmate. Williams has been made a “case manager” in the Department of Education’s human resources department, officials said. His new $127,443 salary

Psychologist in massive Social Security
fraud case gets 25-year sentence

The psychologist who helped pull off the biggest Social Security fraud in U.S. history was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison. Alfred Bradley Adkins was part of the fraud ring orchestrated by Eric C. Conn, one of the country’s most prominent disability lawyers, and David B. Daugherty, a Social Security judge who rubber-stamped at least 1,700 bogus applications for benefits. All told, the scam would have cost the government at least $600 million in fraudulent lifetime benefits, according to the government’s conservative estimate. Some $93 million were already paid out before the scam was stopped, the government said.

He dropped the ball. The Rev. Al Sharpton said on Saturday that President Trump’s crude call for NFL owners to fire protesting players completely misses the point of why they’re taking a knee in the first place. “Why don’t you, as President, address what the protest is about? Why?” Sharpton asked as he addressed a cheering crowd during his weekly rally at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem. “The reason you won’t is because they’re protesting the criminal justice inequities in this country,” a fired up Sharpton said to roaring applause. “He’s talking about ‘fire’ like he’s still doing

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell snapped back at “divisive” comments about the league Saturday, hours after President Trump urged team owners to fire players who won’t stand for the national anthem. At a political rally Friday night in Alabama, Trump griped that players who kneel for “The Star Spangled Banner” disrespect the flag and should lose their jobs. (Snip) Goodell issued a statement via Twitter at 9:16 a.m. Saturday: “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the

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,

As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,

In June 1979, the Bee Gees were on top of the world. Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year. The year before, it spent 24 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. And now the band was playing 60,000-seat arenas across America. Disco was king, and the Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, clad in white suits and flashing gold chains — were its ambassadors. At the start of the tour, Maurice got hold of a T-shirt that made everyone
