Ann Coulter, A Month After Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre: Gun Crime In America Is Not A Problem For "White Populations"

Honestly, we can't even tell you what's more hurtful and sickening here:

That this woman honestly, truly believes all of the hateful, racist nonsense that she shamefully spouts out or that there are people all over this country who support those beliefs.

Although we hate to add to Ann Coulter's already delusional, engorged ego by allowing ourselves to get worked up over her latest hate-spewed tirade against common sense and logic, the right-wing political commentator has truly outdone herself this time while appearing on last night's Hannity to give her latest opinion on the current gun violence debate in the United States.

Make sure you haven't just eaten, because you'll most definitely lose your lunch when you watch (above)!

Yeah.

All we have to say here is that even if that what-sounds-to-be-a-BS statistic about the rates of gun violence in "white communities" compared to "other demographics" is even true in some deliberately limited fashion, how DARE she blatantly ignore the social constructs and institutionalized racism that bleed through our country's politics, legislation, and economy that keep individuals living in poverty, stuck with life-long stigmas preventing them from access to real opportunity, and desperate to do what they have to just to live with a FRACTION of the comfort her lifestyle allows.

Of course, that's also ignoring the fact

Supreme Court Sides ALMOST Entirely With Federal Government In Arizona Immigration Case!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitik

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Well, three out of four isn't bad!

But we still wish they could have abolished ALL of these ridiculously RACIST and unjust policies!

The U.S. Supreme Court finally ruled today MOSTLY in favor of the federal government in regards to the controversial SB1070, a policy in Arizona immigration that has caused quite a bit of controversy regarding its support of blatant racial profiling. Although the 5-3 vote was largely a success, the judges upheld the arguably most CONTROVERSIAL provision, which allows police to check the immigration status of individuals while enforcing other laws!

Ch-ch-check out a news report on the semi-victory!

According to Justice Anthony Kennedy:

Lindsay Lohan Violated The Terms Of Her Insurance Policy By Crashing Driving Her Porsche To Work!

lindsay-lohan-film-insurance-violation-car-accident

Ever since Lindsay Lohan found herself in yet another mess by driving her rented Porsche into an 18-wheeler on the PCH - and then trying to lie about it - while filming Liz & Dick, we been seriously wondering why on Earth producers of the new Lifetime movie would even allow her to get behind the wheel in the first place, given her history!

Well guess what? They HADN'T!

Yup, that's right! Just in case gurl needed another set of instructions to blatantly ignore!

According to sources with the flick, the production company had a hard time getting insurance for Lindsay, and the policy they ultimately found was very clear on their conditions, one of which being that she was banned from driving while doing work on the film!

And look what

Tuxedo-Wearing Lesbian Changes School Policy On Yearbook Photos

Filed under: InspirationEducational

At least it's a change in the right direction.

Lesbian teen Ceara Sturgis sued her Mississippi school after they banned her graduation picture, in which she wears a tuxedo, from the school's yearbook.

Not only did the school ban the picture, but they also excluded her name.

Awful!

Thankfully, the school has decided to change their policy. According to the ACLU:

"The district has agreed to adopt a policy that will require all students to wear a cap and gown, rather than require boys to wear tuxedos and girls to wear drapes."

Her picture will also appear in the school library, just as it should have been shown in the 2009 yearbook.

Her response?

"I am thrilled that my photo will join [the class picture]. It’s important that nobody else will be forced to wear something that doesn’t reflect who they are.

Hopefully no other students will be excluded from this important rite of passage simply for expressing themselves. Copiah County School District has done the right thing by changing the yearbook policy so no students have to feel as if they’re out of place."

Bravo, Ceara. We are so proud of you for standing up for yourself. People like you are what help change this world.

Now if we can only get the school to allow kids to express themselves however they want…
