Nick Cannon Enrolls As A Freshman At Howard University — Cue The Drumline Comparisons!

Filed under: Nick CannonSchool

Nick Cannon

It's never too late!

Nick Cannon has officially enrolled as a freshman at Howard University — and it just wouldn't be right if the Internet didn't erupt in Drumline comparisons!

If you live under a rock and have never seen the 2002 classic, the rapper-turned-actor played Devon Miles — a young drummer who forges a life for himself at the fictitious historically black college Atlanta A&T University.

Anywho, as soon as the 35-year-old took to social media with news of his new student status, people couldn't help but bust out references to the marching band drama.

Federal Judge Blocks President Obama's Move To Make All Public School Bathrooms Transgender-Friendly

no title

Way to represent, Texas…

As you probably remember, North Carolina became the laughingstock of the United States earlier this year when it tried to implement a series of bigoted bathroom bills aimed at the transgender community.

While most Americans condemned N.C. for its treatment of its LGBT citizens, we're sad to say yet another state is currently discriminating against trans individuals.

Apparently, President Barack Obama issued a ruling back in May that would make it so every public school had to allow its students to use the bathroom and locker room that matched with their gender identity.

However, Texas Judge Reed O'Connor took it upon himself to block Obama's move late Sunday evening, and we're hearing 13 states have now banded together to sue the Education and Justice Departments over their trans-friendly law.

Basically, as it stands now, public schools

It's back to school for Ashley Judd!

The Divergent actress revealed Monday during a Q&A session with fans on Facebook Live that she will be pursuing a doctorate degree (studying public policy) this upcoming fall at UC Berkeley!

Dishing about her plans, the actress said:

"I intend to make the very best at my time at Berkeley…to do some good thinking, some rigorous research and fill it with my typical heart and soul and see how I can continue to do my little part to make the world a better place."

Although she's a Hollywood starlet, the Emmy nominated gal has an impressive background as she's adding a third degree to her scholastic list! In the past, she received a bachelor's degree from the University of Kentucky, and in 2009 she got a master's from Harvard University in public administration with an emphasis on gender equality.

Regarding her plans this fall, she will be studying the correlation between human trafficking and gender equality, saying:

"Within human trafficking adheres all of the injustices of gender inequality. You can look at the whole of our striving toward gender equality within the dynamic of ending human trafficking. So it's the big and the little picture all at once and it's definitely at the top of my list."

Victim Shares Moving Letter As ANOTHER College Rapist Avoids Prison Time!

no title

We really didn't want to have to deal with another story like this after the disgusting case of Brock Turner, and yet, here we are…

You'll remember that just a few short months ago, Turner was handed a ridiculously light sentence after being convicted of sexual assault as a student at Stanford University — and now, we are seeing virtually the same situation go down at the University of Colorado.

Austin James Wilkerson, a former CU student, was convicted of sexually assaulting another student that was "helpless" and "half-conscious," according to court documents.

But as disgusting as the crime may have been, Judge Patrick Butler decided Wilkerson somehow did NOT deserve any jail time after the conviction.

How is that even possible??

Understanding how ridiculous that is, the victim in Wilkerson's case — in a move parallel to Turner's innocent victim — made an incredible statement in the

High School Drops Racist Hairstyle Policy After Parents Complain!

no title

They shouldn't have even made this rule in the first place.

Butler Traditional High School came under fire last week after parents and students learned about the school's new dress code, which banned "distracting" hairstyles like dreadlocks, cornrows, twists, and braids.

The racist rule was revealed to the teens and parents involved with the Louisville, Kentucky school in late July during registration.

The list of banned hairstyles was printed out on a pink handout, and, according to the flyer, any student seen sporting any of those hairdos would be sent home:

"Those students who come to school in violation of the dress code will not be allowed to attend class or circulate through the school until their attire is corrected. We feel that a student's academic success is directly correlated to appropriate attire and appearance."

Considering the rule seemed to be targeting members of the African American community, people were PISSED, and slammed the school's new policy as racist.

Here are some of the reactions (below):

Pope Francis Ends His Run As The Coolest Pope Ever By Condemning Transgender People…

no title

Well, it was nice while it lasted…

In the three years that Pope Francis has been in charge of the Catholic Church, he's done an amazing job of preaching acceptance to his religious followers.

Unfortunately, it seems as though the internalized hate usually associated with Christianity has finally gotten to him, because the 79-year-old leader's very revolting beliefs about transgender individuals were just revealed on Tuesday.

Historically, the Papacy has never been too fond of anyone identifying as queer… but during a meeting with Polish Bishops last week, Francis admitted that the recent pro-trans movement has been "terrible" for the world.

According to the translated transcripts, he referred to transgender people as
