Senate Votes To Outlaw LGBT Discrimination At Work, Passes ENDA! Barack Obama Chimes In, Too!

us senate passes ends to outlaw lgbt discrimination work place barack obama approves requires house vote

What a refreshing first step in the right direction!

Today the U.S. Senate passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a law which outlaw LGBT discrimination against individuals in the workplace!

This has the makings of a landmark civil rights moment and it could potentially changes the lives of millions for the better, but it's still far too early to celebrate this as a victory.

ENDA passing in the Senate is a HUGE deal, in order for it to become federal law the bill must also be passed by in the House of Representatives.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner has already said he opposes the law and it's very possible he may not even allow a vote.

Yes, this is the same John Boehner who recently orchestrated the catastrophic government shutdown.

President Barack Obama cast support for the bill today on Twitter.

He said:

Naomi Campbell & Iman Call Out Designers For Runway Racism

Naomi Campbell and Iman have formed a coalition that singles out designers who don't use diverse models!

As we all know, discrimination has been a historically long-winded battle that’s still being fought today.

Amongst countless others, Miss America had to face it, Oprah Winfrey experienced it, and now the mostly white runways of fashion week have come under major scrutiny for their lack of diversity (see above pic).

Luckily the fight to end racism in the fashion world has some of the seksiest models ever as spokespeople: Naomi Campbell and Iman!

The two icons have joined forces with former model agent Bethann Hardison to form the Diversity Coalition, in hopes of raising awareness about the issues.

Iman made an accurate statement on the matter, saying:

American Idol Cast-Offs Claim Racial Discrimination In MEGA Lawsuit; Each Demands $25 Mil!

american idol still fox

As if the game show wasn't in enough hot water with abysmal ratings and high turnover!!

Ten former American Idol contestants from several different seasons just filed a lawsuit against the show — each claims they were unjustly booted because they are black and now they're looking for a huge payday!!!

Lawyers for the failed contestants claim the show misconstrued them all to be "violent criminals, liars and sexual deviants" when none of them were even convicted of those charges!

The plaintiffs accuse producers of concocting various "cruel and inhumane" plans which include digging up their arrest records and humiliating them on national TV just to boost the show's ratings, which is why they each seek millions of dollars in damages!!!
