A student at the Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas this week was caught on camera going on a shocking racist rant that told black people to “burn in hell” while also attacking civil rights icons Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks.
Local news station KNTV 13 reports that the video of the student’s rant was posted on Snapchat this week, where it quickly spread throughout the Palo Verde High community.
“F*cking n*ggers can burn in hell!” the student shouted in the camera. “F*ck Rosa Parks, I’ll slap that b*tch as well! N*ggers need to learn, n*ggers need to burn!”
Darren Sweikert, the principal at Palo Verde High, sent out a message to parents addressing the video shortly after it started spreading across social media.
“Behavior like this will not be tolerated at our school nor anywhere in the Clark County School District,” he said. “While no direct threat has been made to our school or specific students, this kind of dialogue is unacceptable.”
This is actually the second hate-related incident to occur in the school district this week. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that “a local rabbi discovered his daughter had come home from Escobedo Middle School with a note bearing a swastika and the message: ‘You don’t belong here.'”
Trump supporters live in an ‘alternate universe’ like post-truth Soviet Union: Former world chess champion Kasparov
Before the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and Russia established a capitalist government that was headed by President Boris Yeltsin and later, President Vladimir Putin, it was infamous for Orwellian language: government-owned media reported what the Soviet Communist Party told them to report. Former world chess champion Garry Kasparov was among those who grew up in the Soviet Union, and in a December 5 op-ed for CNN’s website, he finds some Orwellian parallels between the old Soviet Union and the Trump Administration.
Kushner’s business lawyers say lawsuit over horrific apartment conditions is a ‘political attack’
Responding to a lawsuit from Maryland's Attorney General Brian Frosh charging “unfair or deceptive” rental practices, attorneys for an apartment management company owned by Jared Kushner are saying their client is on the receiving end of a "political attack," The Baltimore Sun reports.
According to the attorneys, Kushner is being singled out by the Maryland AG for his affiliations with the Trump administration, saying Frosh has "overreached, and in overreaching has turned what ought to have been, at best, a small administrative action of dubious merit into a sprawling prosecution threatening to devour the resources of the parties."
Desperate conservatives unleash a torrent of misogyny to undermine Pamela Karlan’s devastating testimony
As soon as Pamela Karlan, a constitutional law professor at Stanford who specializes in voting rights, opened her mouth during Wednesday's impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, I knew she would become the prime if not exclusive focus of the entire right-wing response to the hearing.
Republicans were desperate to do anything to keep voters from paying attention to the actual substance of the testimony from the three law professors summoned to explain why Donald Trump should be impeached for his crimes, since the substance of their testimony is irrefutable. And while all three were articulate, intelligent and crystal clear in their arguments, only Karlan was female.
