February 23, 2013 | A North Dakota high school principal says appropriate action is being taken after three students briefly donned Ku Klux Klan-style white robes and hoods Friday night during a state hockey semifinal game.

The photo caused an uproar on Twitter when it was posted by 19-year-old Shane Schuster, who was seated with some friends at Ralph Engelstad Arena when something in the student section across the rink caught his eye.

 

"I thought, 'Are those KKK hoods?' I couldn't believe it," Schuster said. "I was shocked."

  • The fight against race prejudice is central for people who want revolutionary change in the United States. Racist ideologies have played a central role in weakening potentially revolutionary movements of poor and working people.

Jack Pinto, 6, one of the victims of the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting rampage.

 

December 26, 2012 | The 20 school kids slaughtered in their classrooms in Connecticut – and many other children who die of gun violence every day – are a sacrifice that some Americans feel is “worth it” for their personal dreams of waging some violent revolution sometime in the future, whether from the Right or the Left.

 

Some of these revolutionary dreamers may have watched movies like “Red Dawn” too many times and are obsessed with absurd plots about North Korea, Cuba or maybe the United Nations invading and conquering the United States. Others look forward to the collapse of the world economy, followed by some armed uprising of the dispossessed.

Jan 29 2013 | Thirteen years ago, when I was a relatively new teacher, stumbling around my classroom on wobbly legs, I had to call a students' mother to inform her that I would be initiating disciplinary proceedings against her daughter for plagiarism, and that furthermore, her daughter would receive a zero for the plagiarized paper.

 

"You can't do that. She didn't do anything wrong," the mother informed me, enraged.

 

 "But she did. I was able to find entire paragraphs lifted off of web sites," I stammered.

 

"No, I mean she didn't do it. I did. I wrote her paper."

January 28, 2013 | This is a list of names of innocent children killed by America’s drones.

 

But behind each name there is the face of a child with a family history in a village in a far away country, with a mom and a dad, with brothers and sisters and friends.

 

Among the list, are infants of 1, 2, 3 and 4 years old.

 

In some cases brothers and sisters of an entire family are killed.

January 27, 2013 | President Barack Obama is a big football fan with two daughters, but if he had a son, he says he'd "have to think long and hard" before letting him play because of the physical toll the game takes.

 

"I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence," Obama tells The New Republic.
