History Or Bigotry? A Landlord Hangs ‘White Only’ Sign On Pool

History Or Bigotry? A Landlord Hangs ‘White Only’ Sign On Pool

Pre-Civil Rights Movement, ‘white only’ signs dotted the country. Everything from the finest restaurants to not-so-fine diners bragged of their ‘exclusivity.’ We thought that type of bigotry was gone, at least until a landlord in Ohio posted a ‘white only’ sign at her apartment building’s swimming pool.

Cop Tases 14 Year Old Girl, When Her Hands Are Up (VIDEO)

Cop Tases 14 Year Old Girl, When Her Hands Are Up (VIDEO)

I don’t want to say that cops are out of control. I don’t want to say that they are treating American citizens as Abu Ghraib prisoners. I don’t want to say that because I don’t actually believe that. I still believe that the majority of police officers are in their jobs for the right reason, to Protect and to Serve the public. That being said, videos like this are hard to swallow, and we’ve seen far too many of them lately.

Then they called Utah, Nevada. This one though, has to win the prize.

Lowe’s Home Improvement Store has received a lot of flack for pulling advertisements on the show called, ‘All-American Muslim,’ which follows the lives of several real American citizens who, while they aren’t praying to Allah, go to school, do laundry, discuss marital problems, go to work, support the economy…you know, the things that you and I do.

Michael Savage Throws Gingrich A Million Dollar Bone…To Quit (VIDEO)
