  • Betsy DeVos statement on black colleges sparks uproar

    Angry social media users flew into an uproar Monday evening after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued a statement that some said ignored the context under which historically black universities were created. The statement called historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) “real pioneers when it comes to school choice,” and came shortly after President Donald Trump held a meeting with several HBCU leaders on Monday. Some social media users said DeVos ignored the history of how black Americans were denied access to higher education.

  • ‘Cash me outside’ girl is a bi-coastal menace to America

    The teen notorious for her “cash me outside” remark on the “Dr. Phil” show has found herself in the middle of trouble again. Police are investigating a brawl involving Danielle Bregoli, 13, and three others early on Sunday morning outside of a bar in Lake Worth, Florida. Bregoli, who made headlines earlier this month for a Spirit Airlines altercation, was caught on camera exchanging words with another female bar patron in a video shared to YouTube. According to the post, the woman had suggested that Bregoli was out past her curfew. In response, one of Bregoli’s friends hurled ice cream at the woman and then made a break for it. The food fight led to more altercations that were not seen on the

  • George W. Bush Breaks His Silence on the Direction of the Country Under President Trump: ‘I Don’t Like the Racism and Name-Calling’

    For eight years since leaving the White House, George W. Bush has refused to criticize publicly those who succeeded him, saying he didn’t want to make an already tough job any harder for President Obama and, now, President Trump. “I don’t like the racism and I don’t like the name-calling and I don’t like the people feeling alienated,” Bush, 70, tells PEOPLE in an interview for the new issue of the magazine on newsstands Friday. The former president, joined by his wife  Laura, spoke with PEOPLE in the third-floor painting studio of their Dallas home to launch his first art book, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors. The collection of portraits of the wounded warriors of America’s war on terror aims to raise awareness and funds for the post-9/11 veterans’ health care and employment programs of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

  • Since this golf course went brown, it’s battled ATVs, burglars and snakes

    Wayne Rosen, a well-known developer of upscale homes, kept his promise — well, one of them. After not getting the rezoning he requested last year to build single-family homes in an industrial area, Rosen — who had vowed to let Homestead’s Keys Gate Golf Course “go brown” — has not relented. True to his word, the golf course today is indeed brown. But it’s not just a matter of dead grass. Piles of tree branches and trash have overtaken tee boxes. Ponds and water hazards are surrounded by knee-deep grass. Once-emerald fairways are now filled with weeds and sand. Dilapidated bathrooms with collapsed roofs are adorned with yellow police tape. Since the course closed, city officials have dealt with

    If the journey to the next Kirk Cousins contract were a car ride, the Washington Redskins would have sideswiped every parked vehicle on the street by now. The Redskins have internal problems.

  • Brie Larson, like everyone else, didn't seem thrilled with Casey Affleck's Oscar win

    As 2016's Best Actress winner, Brie Larson was tasked with presenting the award for Best Actor at the 2017 Academy Awards. On Sunday night, that award went to Casey Affleck for his role in Manchester By the Sea , despite the allegations of sexual harassment against him. And like the rest of the internet, Larson did not seem pleased.

My aesthetic: Brie Larson not clapping for literal trash hole casey affleck pic.twitter.com/Ci5LWXLkCr — Tyler Struble (@tyler_struble) February 27, 2017 The allegations against Affleck stem from lawsuits filed by two women who worked on his 2010 film I'm Still Here. The actor settled both cases out of court.  Although similar allegations against Nate Parker became the major talking point surrounding his film The Birth of a Nation , Affleck's Oscar win shows that the lawsuits have left his his career largely unscathed. Larson — who portrayed a sexual assault survivor in 2015's Room and who stood to hug the survivors who performed with Lady Gaga at last year's show — doesn't seem to be here for it.  All award season Brie Larson, who starred in a movie about sexual assault, had to present Casey Affleck all his awards. pic.twitter.com/L2WbQvSJNv — Marnie (@ChrnclsOfMarnia) February 27, 2017 at what time is brie larson scheduled to beat up casey affleck — ASYA (@communistbabe) February 27, 2017 brie larson everytime she sees casey affleck pic.twitter.com/nkQCta9JxZ — chiara (@chapmns) February 27, 2017 BONUS: Despite the most awkward moment in Oscars history, ‘Moonlight’s’ Best Picture award is what matters most.

  • Town hall agitators explode at the name of Jesus

    A group of enraged protesters exploded in anger after a chaplain prayed in the name of Jesus at a town hall meeting in Louisiana hosted by U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy. The verbally-abusive crowd also heckled a Vietnam War veteran who attempted to lead the group in the pledge of allegiance. It was one of the most heinous acts of un-American, anti-Christian behavior I’ve ever seen, folks. Louisiana State chaplain Michael Sprague and the unidentified Vietnam War veteran should be commended for maintaining their composure in the face of such verbal barbarism. The Feb. 22 town hall meeting in Metairie, was quickly overrun by the angry mob – much like other town hall meetings hosted by Republican lawmakers

  • Moonlight/La La Land Oscars gaffe: People think Leonardo DiCaprio is to blame for the Best Picture chaos

    Leonardo DiCaprio may have been the star of last year’s Oscars, when he put an end to the #PoorLeo memes by finally winning Best Actor, but the Hollywood favourite has unexpectedly found himself in the spotlight this time around too for his role in the Moonlight/La La Land mixup chaos. In case you’ve missed it, Moonlight won Best Picture, but only after La La Land's name was read out first by presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Beatty had somehow ended up with the Best Actress envelope announcing La La Land’s Emma Stone as the winner.
