  • U of Wisconsin: A Funny Halloween Costume is Oppressive

    The Center for Cultural Enrichment (CCE) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is warning students that if your Halloween costume is funny, it's more than likely that you're exploiting oppressed people. That message, along with other suggestions about avoiding "cultural appropriation," was posted on fliers around campus in the previous few days. Sheets of paper were put up in different buildings at the college titled, "Does my Halloween Costume Promote Cultural Appropriation?" It asks questions about your Halloween costume, then answers how that could be oppressing people: "Is your costume racially, ethnically, or culturally based?" the sheet asks. "If it is,...
  • Madison City Council overrides [Mayor's] VETO; Adds Homelessness as a Protected Class

    Das Kapitol Times ^ | June 17, 2015 | Bryna Godar
    The Madison City Council overrode Mayor Paul Soglin’s veto Tuesday evening, adding homelessness as a protected class under its Equal Opportunities Ordinance. The change adds homelessness to classifications like age, disability, arrest record, sexual orientation, political beliefs and others, providing limited protection against discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations. "It's very narrow, very slim part of the law," said Department of Civil Rights director Lucia Nuñez. The 17-1 vote came after hours of testimony and debate that coupled the ordinance change with the overarching concern of how to address the city’s issues with homelessness. “We have a reputation. We...

  • UW Madison Students: 'Unfair' That Obama Couldn't Use Teleprompter in Debate

    Thousands of President Obama supporters turned out in in Madison, Wisc., for a rally following Wednesday night’s debate in Denver. The mood was somber, to say the least, as they waited to enter Bascom Mall at the University of Wisconsin Thursday afternoon. University of Wisconsin students and fellow Wisconsinites had mixed reviews on the president's performance. I talked to supporters of the president who had watched the debate, asking how they thought the president did. One after the other said they were left unimpressed and “not inspired,” seemingly depressed and lethargic in their continuing support of the president. More than...

  • Naked bike ride to proceed Saturday despite court ruling (Madison, WI---Yuck)

    A Dane County judge ruled against naked bike riders Friday, declining to issue a temporary injunction to keep them from possibly being cited for disorderly conduct at a Downtown Madison event Saturday. Judge Maryann Sumi said participants in the World Naked Bike Ride do not have a constitutional right to be naked in public and that police should have the full range of laws at their disposal. Afterward, one of the ride's organizers said the event will go on.

    With lawmakers gearing up for a vote on the state budget, a “Walkerville” camp similar to the one that sprang up during the protests at the state Capitol earlier this year may be returning this weekend — this time to the terraces of Mifflin and Carroll streets. We Are Wisconsin, an alliance of community groups, labor unions and others, has asked the city for a permit to set up the camp across from the Capitol to provide information about Gov. Scott Walker’s budget proposals and efforts to recall Republican legislators who voted to eliminate bargaining rights for most public employees.

    They were images that were odd, and to some shocking. In the halls of the Wisconsin Capitol on Saturday, young people banged drums, danced around, and blew horns as socialists and Marxist signs looked on. It was a scene described to The Blaze by a disgusted observer as a drug and alcohol-infested rave that Capitol police ignored. And while the Capitol Police deny those charges, it seems one prominent protester noticed something interesting, too.

    Salon's War Room ^ | March 6, 2011 | Peter Finocchiario
    The documentary filmmaker was in Wisconsin yesterday, slamming Republicans for cutting union benefits. Michael Moore has a message for Wisconsinites: Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe -- so that you'll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had -- America is not broke. The claim came at the beginning of a speech delivered by the documentary filmmaker and liberal firebrand at the Wisconsin State Captiol yesterday. Over the course of 30 minutes, Moore railed against Republicans, who he accused of misleading the American public when they claim that...

    Aaron Kennedy, the founder of Noodles, grew up on a farm with few to no connections to money. Like my friend Rob, Kennedy also studied at the University of Wisconsin. At 29, while eating at a Chinese restaurant, Kennedy had an idea, and scribbled his business plan on a napkin. Scraping some money together from his friends and family and maxing out eight credit cards, Kennedy opened the first Noodles in his basement, and then put together a team with whom he’d build and operate 100 Noodles branches all on their own. It is now a $75 million franchise with...
