'Stone Cold' Steve Austin's EPIC Takedown Of Religious Bigots

Published on Apr 23, 2014

"No one can make the case for gay marriage quite like a pro wrestler can. And wrestling fans are now circulating some pretty unfiltered comments Stone Cold Steve Austin made on his podcast months ago about why he doesn’t "give a shit" about people’s sexuality, he just wants them treated equally. He said, "I believe that any human being in America, or any human being in the goddamn world, that wants to be married, and if it’s same-sex, more power to ‘em."

He also found it stunning how churches get to lecture people about their sexuality being a lifestyle, asking, “Which one of these motherfuckers talked to God, and God said that same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?”

And beyond that, Austin’s not happy with the hypocrisy over sinful behavior and redemption in organized religion.”* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

Jim Crow in the Classroom: New Report Finds Segregation Lives on in U.S. Schools

Published on Apr 23, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org - As the U.S. Supreme Court upholds a ban on affirmative action in Michigan and the country marks 60 years since the landmark decision of Brown v. Board of Education, we look at how segregation is still pervasive in U.S. public schools. An explosive new report in ProPublica finds school integration never fully occurred, and in recent decades may have even been reversed. Focusing on three generations of the same family in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the story concludes: “While segregation as it is practiced today may be different than it was 60 years ago, it is no less pernicious: in Tuscaloosa and elsewhere, it involves the removal and isolation of poor black and Latino students, in particular, from everyone else. In Tuscaloosa today, nearly one-in-three black students attends a school that looks as if Brown v. Board of Education never happened.” We are joined by Nikole Hannah-Jones, whose article “The Resegregation of America’s Schools,” is the latest in the ProPublica series, “Segregation Now: Investigating America’s Racial Divide.”

In Landmark Ruling, U.S. Ordered to Release Memo Behind Targeted Killings of U.S. Citizens

Published on Apr 24, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org - In a major development chipping away at the secrecy of the Obama administration’s drone wars, a federal appeals court has ordered the government to release a legal memo that provides the legal rationale for killing U.S. citizens overseas. The court ruled that the government had waived its right to keep the memo secret following public statements in defense of the killings by top officials, as well as the release of a Justice Department “white paper” on the subject. We speak with Hina Shamsi, director of the National Security Project at the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed the lawsuit to release the memo along with The New York Times.
