Ohio KKK Police Chief

An Ohio police chief has resigned after he was reportedly caught putting a Ku Klux Klan sign on a black officer’s desk.

Anthony Campo, the chief of the Sheffield Lake Police Department, was caught on CCTV putting a piece of paper with “Klu Klux Klan” written on it, according to reports. He also laid out a jacket to look like robes worn by KKK members.

Yet – Ohio is the latest state considering legislation to prohibit public schools from teaching critical race theory, which views racism as systemic in the nation’s institutions and promotes race-based reverse discrimination to achieve equity.

If He Was Here

If he was here I call him for no reason…

If he was here I could ask him for advice…

If he was here I could share my fears…

If he was here I could share my accomplishments…

If he was here I would learn something I never knew…

If he was here I wouldn’t be sad on this day…

I miss my dad…

Pigs In Prison

John Oliver found at least one place in America where people are often treated worse than pigs: prisons.

In Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver said inmates in prisons in some of the hottest parts of the country don’t have access to air conditioning. For example, in Texas, 75 percent of prisons lack A/C, causing the heat index inside to hit 150 degrees in the summer. 

“This situation is so bad the U.N. Committee Against Torture has expressed particular concern about deaths from extreme heat exposure in prison facilities in Texas,” Oliver noted. “And while you probably assumed Texas prisons were bad, maybe not ‘International Human Rights Watch List’ bad.”

Oliver pointed to one instance where the pigs at a prison farm were given air conditioning to make those facilities consistent with typical swine operations.

“Look, I’m not against pigs getting treated comfortably. I love pigs, their springy tails, their two big ears, their stupid, flat noses and their horrible eyes,” Oliver said. “Pigs are like big, chubby dogs you can eat at Christmas. I just question prioritizing their comfort over humans.”

Women Veterans Day actually acknowledges the history of our journey and the legislation that was passed. Providing history supports inclusion because it can show the entire story. “The first Women Veterans Day on June 12, 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the groundbreaking legislation signed into law by President Harry S. Truman on June 12, 1948. The Women’s Armed Services Integration Act enabled women to serve as permanent, regular members of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and recently formed Air Force.” Linda Ellis Florence Novak Buckley Lohen
