Racism shall not be tolerated

A second nurse has joined Tonya Battle in filing a lawsuit against Flint hospital Hurley Medical Center.

Details on this and more after the jump.

Tonya Battle is a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurse at the Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan. Last year on Halloween, she was caring for a baby in the NICU unit.

AUDIO: Speaker at Americans for Prosperity workshop refers to “ethnically challenged” charter school students

Hoo boy…

At a recent Americans for Prosperity-sponsored “Citizens Watchdog Training” workshop in Warren, Michigan, one of their speakers was a prominent Michigan conservative and member of the North Oakland Tea Party Patriots, Norm Hughes. During his talk, he used a phrase I have honestly never heard before: “ethnically challenged”. What is “ethnically challenged”? I have no idea.

Racist signs in Delaware? When moral outrage gets in the way of solving problems – a cautionary tale

Think (and check facts) before you rage out

I was surfing Daily Kos a couple of days ago and came across a cross-post of a piece from Delaware Liberal titled “Outrage in Milford”. The piece was inspired by this sign:

The top sign says one thing in English but the bottom sign, in Spanish, says something entirely different:

You must have a permit to play on this field. Violators are subject to police action.

This racist snowbilly was almost our Vice President – Palin tweets that Obama is using “Shuck & Jive”

This racist snowbilly was almost our Vice President – Palin tweets that Obama is using “Shuck & Jive”

It’s truly frightening how close to the Vice Presidency, and with John McCain’s advanced age, the actual Presidency, Sarah Palin was. While there has been little doubt over the past four years that she’s unqualified, she seems to go out of her way to prove how dangerous she would have been in a position of national power.

While there has always been an undercurrent of racism in her remarks about and attitude toward President Obama, today she tore down the curtain to reveal her true racist self.

How? With a single tweet (after the jump.)
