Duke Professor Is Suspended After Claiming 'Every Black Has A Strange New Name' Amongst Other Things — But He Still Claims He's Not Racist! Read His Ridiculous Defense!

no title

This weekend, a Duke University professor was suspended after it was discovered he wrote racist comments in a New York Times article, proving that he's too ridiculous to be considered an "educator."

Jerry Hough had to speak his mind after reading a New York Times editorial titled How Racism Doomed Baltimore. The professor disagreed with the article, which he deemed was telling black people to feel sorry for themselves.

He thought there was a connection between the Baltimore riots and black people having "strange," non-traditional white names. The Professor wrote in the comments:

"Blacks get symbolic recognition in an utterly incompetent mayor who handled this so badly from beginning to end that her resignation would be demanded if she were white. The blacks get awful editorials like this that tell them to feel sorry for themselves."

Hough compared "the blacks" to other cultures who have faced discrimination, specifically Asians. He continued:

Natalie Portman Is Set To Play Jackie Kennedy In The Upcoming Biopic Jackie! Deets Here!

no title

All of the movie roles go to Natalie Portman!

Just last week, it was announced that the 33-year-old was cast for the role of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film, On The Basis of Sex!

Now, the Oscar winner is set to play another historical figure — Jackie Kennedy for the upcoming biopic Jackie!

The story will follow the iconic first lady right after the assassination of her husband, President John. F. Kennedy. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is set to produce the film.

This isn't the first time Jackie-O will be portrayed on the big screen. Katie Holmes played her in the miniseries The Kennedys and Minka Kelly did a brief but heartbreaking portrayal in The Butler.

We think that Portman is an excellent choice to play the first lady at the time when she lost the love of her life but won the love of a nation!

Do U think the actress is a good choice for the role?

no title

Macho men boycotting a Mad Max movie for being too feminist??

It really MAY be the end of the world of the world! And we feel fine!

"Male rights activist" (seriously, someone thinks that's a thing!) blog Return Of Kings called on men to ban Mad Max: Fury Road as Charlize Theron's badass turn as Furiosa would lead to more women in lead roles in action movies.

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!

no title

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

She said:

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."

As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:

Is Ireland About To Be The First Country To Vote In Favor Of Gay Marriage!?

no title

We're gonna be all over the Blarney Stone if this comes true!

On May 22, Ireland could become the very first country in all the land to vote in favor of allowing same-sex couples to get married.

While there have been countries that have voted to not ban gay marriage, Ireland's potential LGBT victory would be a gigantic step forward for equality in Western Europe since it'd be the first 'Yes.'

According to current polling, 78 percent of the country is in favor of allowing marriage rights to queer couples, and we couldn't be prouder.
