    WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE IN? Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'prejudice' these days ..... A customer asked, "In what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?" The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?" The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was...

    That is the sort of environment we are living in, where half of the country has normalized aggression against any conservative, any Trump supporter, so long as they claim that they're confronting a "Nazi". The real irony here is that after their confrontation, they are the ones who claim they feel unsafe afterward. While half of the country is rejoicing in its new revolution, preparing to build a wonderful world, and the other is convinced the sky is falling, that weÂ’ve entered a new era of barbarism. There are currently two Americas, one full of cherry-trees, apple pie capitalism and...

    Editor's Note: This blog originally appeared at Academe Blog, the blog of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). A decade or more ago, at a faculty party in New York City, I listened in as a diverse group of faculty spoke casually and disparagingly of "hillbillies," "rednecks" and "white trash." I reminded them that they were speaking of my own people (my ancestry is completely Appalachian), though they shouldn't really be demeaning any group, no matter who might be around. I was met by fish-eyed responses, including the comment, "Well, you left there." My experience is not unusual. Author...

    Philadelphia’s public school system was ordered to pay out $2.3 million in damages after a court found it deliberately discriminated against a white-owned business. Security and Data Technologies, Inc. (SDT) was initially chosen by Philadelphia School District (PSD) and then-Superintendent Arlene Ackerman back in 2010 to install surveillance cameras at 19 schools PSD classified as particularly dangerous. After the company began preliminary work, it was abruptly “deselected” and the $7.5 million no-bid contract was then awarded on an emergency basis to IBS Communications, a company not eligible for no-bid contracts. The abrupt turn of events, it turns out, had a...

    News that a university lecturers’ union has banned straight, white men from attending their equality conferences in a bid to create “safe spaces” is deeply depressing. News that a university lecturers’ union has banned straight, white men from attending their equality conferences in a bid to create “safe spaces” is deeply depressing. ....excluding straight, white men from taking part in these conferences completely undermines their point. How are people expected to tackle minority issues when, in the most crass manner, one of the root causes of that problem is specifically excluded from participating – as though it didn’t exist? It...

Klayman has this to say: “This harsh criticism, designed to inflame Latino-Americans, and influence...

    In 2014, the British government reported 12 late-term unborn babies were aborted simply because they had Down syndrome. This disturbing statistic is prompting one mother of a boy with the condition to put a stop to the deadly, discriminatory practice. Sarah Roberts from Guildford, England, is a mother of three who is trying to convince others that the lives of those with Down syndrome have value. Roberts’ son Oscar has the genetic disorder. She tells Eagle radio: “A lot of the children we hang around with are typical children. They don’t necessarily notice any differences yet but I’m sure as...

    The American Family Association has called on U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Elena Kagan to recuse themselves from the marriage equality cases the court announced last Friday (Jan. 16), that it will be hearing appeals on, likely in April. Ginsberg and Kagan should not participate in the hearing, AFA President Tim Wildmon has declared, because they have both officiated as same-sex weddings, according to reports by the UK LGBT news site Pink News. SCOTUS announced Friday that the court will accept appeals on four marriage equality cases — from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. The four cases...

    The Democratic effort to pump up the African-American vote in Georgia just took an interesting turn. A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters: “If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.” Here’s a complete look: And...

    Police officers have the worst job in the world.  I am not one, but I know several.  Dealing with liars, spouse abusers, robbers, and drug abusers for a living wears on a soul like an old shoe.  Many of them lose faith in humanity, and allow every interaction become one of accusation, confrontation and suspicion.  Plus, the public expects them to be courteous, impartial, and all-knowing about any situation in which they find themselves.   Every interaction on duty becomes a potential for a life and death struggle.  Cops are never allowed to have a bad day, and if they do,...

    Mark Cuban has probably opened up a bigger can of worms than even he could have imagined when he decided to have a rather frank discussion on people’s preconceived notions. “I mean, we’re all prejudiced in one way or another,” he said. “If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it’s late at night, I’m walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street there’s a guy that has tattoos all over his face – white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere – I’m walking back to the other side of the...

    Ask anyone on the left which groups are hated by the right, and they'll be able to rattle off a dozen or so answers. Truth doesn't matter, perception does, and so they'll have that list ready - gays, immigrants, blacks, yada yada yada. Anyway, it occured to me that we should have our own list of those groups for which many on the left show as much, if not more, intolerance. So here's my list, and I'd be happy to hear from other Freepers with some ideas of what else could be added: Tea Partiers Gun owners The devout Virgins...
