FGCU offers 'White Racism' class

A special topics class offered at Florida Gulf Coast University gave some students pause at its title.

"White Racism" is among classes available for the spring semester at the university.

While the title left some questioning the topic, others appreciated the approach. Either way, most students agreed the description for the course left them interested in signing up.

Course description
"In this course, we will interrogate the concept of race; examine the racist ideologies, laws, policies, and practices that have operated for hundreds of years to maintain white racial domination over those racialized as non-white; and discuss ways to challenge and disrupt white racism and dethrone white supremacy in the service of engendering an anti-racist society where whiteness is not tied to greater life chances."

Trump's big announcement for opiod addicts:

"You're on your own."

Trump only gave himself a 10 on handling Puerto Rico

He said he deserved a 10 for the disaster response. My question is why didn't he give himself an eleven?

How to help stop systemic sexual harassment

If my doctor commits medical malpractice, or even settles a malpractice case, the verdict or settlement must be reported to a National Practitioner's Data Bank. I think it is time we do the same with companies and individuals where there is alleged harrassment. That information does not need to be made public, just like with the the doctors, but should be reviewed by the EEOC.

I have been around long enough to know that if there is smoke, usually there is fire. Apparent repeat offenders should be looked at more closely and people should not be allowed to get away with things for years (Like Weinstein, Ailes and Uber). If both the employing company and the individual is reported to a system that can monitor patterns, it cannot be swept under the carpet so easily. Now, the rich and powerful just pay settlements that include non-disclosure agreements that allow them to continue their harassment, often for decades.

I understand a settlement of a single case is not proof of wrongdoing. But once the cases become more numerous, it's usually a pretty good indicator that something is wrong.

Can we at least agree "Bump Fire Stock" ownership

by civilians should be a felony? Surely even the gun lovers on here could agree with that?
