    A trending social media hashtag has highlighted experiences of possible racial bias by users of the AirBnB rental app. Quirtina Crittenden, a 23-year-old business consultant living in Chicago, who is African-American, started the hashtag #AirBnBWhileBlack after noting how often she was declined by hosts when seeking a place to rent – even when the apartments advertised appeared to be available. “The hosts would always come up with excuses like, ‘oh, someone actually just booked it’ or ‘oh, some of my regulars are coming in town, and they’re going to stay there,’” Crittenden said in an NPR interview. “But I got...
  • Bill Clinton Compiles "List" of Obama Attacks [Hillary as victim Alert]

    (CNN) — Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign came out swinging Monday against the latest complaints from her rival, with former President Clinton announcing he has "a list of 80 attacks on Hillary" by Senator Barack Obama's campaign. In a nationally syndicated radio interview on WVON, Bill Clinton said Hillary Clinton's way of handling attacks showed a clear difference from Obama. "She didn't complain about it," he said, citing one in particular that he considered "appalling." "She just said 'I disagree,' and went on." .....
  • Latinos assail money-wiring fees

    NEW BRUNSWICK — City resident Jose Villanueva sends a portion of his monthly earnings to his family in Honduras every month. And each time he does, Western Union takes a chunk of that money. For every $300 Villanueva sends, the global corporation charges him $11 to $15 per wire transfer, he said at a forum — held in New Brunswick Tuesday — about Western Union's fees. "They should lower those fees and give some of that money to the community," Villanueva said. "When you think about the money they are making, most of it has to be from the Latino...
  • Accused Burglar Sues Homeowner Who Shot Him

    MILWAUKEE -- A Janesville man who admitted breaking into a home is suing the homeowner who shot him. Kurt Prochaska, 39, was on probation last fall when he admitted he broke in to a home and was shot by the homeowner, but that's not stopping him from going after cash through the courts. Late last year, the Rainiero family awoke to find Prochaska in their home. Michael Rainiero, a doctor, ordered Prochaska to leave. He didn't and was shot in the back. Nearly a year later, Rainiero's attorney said it's far from over because Prochaska is suing him from beind...

S. Defense Department in a letter to Chancellor John Wiley Monday. The letter was sent in response to a Dec. 14 NBC News expose in which a Department of Defense database containing reports on the meetings and actions of anti-war groups around the country was revealed. According to an April 2005 posting on the Campus Anti-War Network website, which STW is a chapter of, an information day the...

    Controversial American documentary filmmaker Michael Moore bemoaned an apparent right turn by liberal northern neighbor Canada in its upcoming general election. "Oh, Canada -- you're not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That's a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, ... but this is no longer funny," Moore complained in a commentary on his website. "First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq -- and then you elect a prime minister who's for it. You declare gay people have equal rights -- and then you elect...

  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
