California Officially Outlaws Using 'Redskins' As Mascots For All Public Schools!

Great work, California!

The Golden State has become the first in the nation to completely ban the use of 'Redskins' as a mascot for any public school sports team, with a bill signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown (pictured above) on Sunday.

The ban comes in direct relation to the ongoing controversy surrounding the NFL's Washington Redskins, and that team's refusal to change their mascot, which Native American advocacy groups and allies have continually said is racist and cruel.

With California's ban, the state joins communities — like Houston, Texas and Madison, Wisconsin — in ridding themselves of the racially insensitive term in the public realm surrounding sports and mascots.

California's bill, Assembly Bill 30, also known as the California Racial Mascots Act, prohibits public schools from using 'Redskins' for athletic mascots or nicknames beginning on January 1, 2017.

Governor Brown said of the bill, and other legal moves on racial issues:

North Carolina Legislature Passes A Bill That Allows Denial Of Same-Sex Marriages Based On Religious Beliefs

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

North Carolina has passed a very disturbing bill that can affect same-sex marriage in the state.

Talk about taking taking two steps forward and 500 steps back.

North Carolina legislature has just passed a bill that allows officials to deny same-sex couples a marriage ceremony or even a marriage license if it interferes with their religious beliefs.

The bill now lands on Governor Pat McCrory's desk, where he will have 10 days to decide whether to veto it or pass it. If he does not come to a decision by then the bill will become law.

This would essentially allow court officials to opt out of performing a marriage ceremony for religious reasons.

This bill has been floating around ever since same-sex marriage was legalized in the state last October, but Governor McCrory has shot down it down in the past.

It seems that some conservatives are convinced that this is some sort of compromise and that they're REALLY protecting the officials who don't want to 'forced' to challenge their own beliefs.

It's unclear if the Governor is currently leaning in one direction or the other, but let's just say we hope he comes to his senses and shoots this thing down AGAIN!

Arkansas Governor Refuses To Sign Religious Freedom Bill! Find Out How His Own Son Changed His Mind For The Better HERE!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikHillary ClintonFamilyLGBT

It was because of his son that he didn't sign this bill.

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson surprised many on Wednesday when he announced that he would not sign his state's religious freedom bill.

The Republican Governor asked for lawmakers to change the current version of the bill so that it mirrors the federal version of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act — which does NOT have the provision that allows businesses to discriminate against customers of different sexual and religious orientations.

Governor Hutchinson faced criticism from a lot of sources when it was announced that he would sign the bill into law, but ultimately it was his son Seth's criticism that had the biggest impact. Hutchinson said:

Bill O'Reilly Defends Brian Williams… And Himself… On Letterman!

no title

Bill O'Reilly was recently on the Late Show and talked to David Letterman about truth and accuracy in the news.

So of course Brian Williams came up.

Brian was suspended for lying about events while covering the Iraq war in 2003.

Bill found himself in a similar situation recently when his 1982 account of the Falklands war and his proximity to it was questioned. So it makes sense that Bill feels for Brian and hopes he gets reinstated.

[ Related: Bill O'Reilly Pulled A Brian Williams?? ]

At one point Letterman straight up asks O'Reilly if he's ever lied on the air. And of course Bill couldn't give a straight answer.

Yet again Bill O'Reilly manages to talk a whole lot and not really say anything.

Check out the video (below) to hear Bill O'Reilly try and defend himself and Brian Williams.

Comcast Apologizes For Calling A Customer An A-Hole In The Bill They Sent!

Filed under: Oops!Business Blitz

Talk about rude!!!

A couple from Spokane, Washington recently had a fight with a Comcast rep over their bill.

When they finally did receive a new bill in the mail, Ricardo and Lisa Brown were shocked to discover that Ricardo's name had been changed to "Asshole Brown" — and the couple was VERY upset with the company!

The worst part of the whole ordeal however was when Comcast offered resistance to the couple after they tried to get the curse word removed from any future billings — seriously!

That's when they contacted Christopher Elliott who wrote about the situation on his website and has talked about it in the media since. Here's what he recently said:
