"The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and it’s attorney, Robert Patillo, traveled to Savannah to investigate and interview employees of Paula Deen’s food conglomerate.

According to Robert Patillo, who interviewed several current and former employees, a family member consistently referred to a black cook as “my little monkey”; a black male employee who threatened to go to EEOC with complaints of discrimination was told “you don’t have any civil rights here” by Deen’s brother; that whites are routinely paid more and promoted sooner than blacks; that until recently a black women who for years helped Deen create her recipes and taught her to cook was paid less than $10.00 per hour; that Deen preferred white and light skinned blacks to work with customers and relegating darker blacks to back-of-the-house operations; that blacks are reluctant to speak openly about working conditions due to fears of retaliation from Deen.

Attorney Janice L. Mathis, VP of Rainbow PUSH indicates that “these reports seem to indicate systemic discrimination and exclusion and are inconsistent with Deen’s statements. The allegations are credible in the sense that they corroborate each other. Unfortunately, there are still pockets of culture in the South that persist in unenlightened attitudes and practices.”"

“Coalition finds discrimination case against Paula Deen”

So it’s not just using the n-word, telling racist jokes, or planning a plantation slave-fantasy wedding — it’s career and workplace discrimination, which is legally more serious.

Anybody who’s remotely familiar with the food industry knows about the ubiquitous racism underlying front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house assignments, pay rates, prestige, and career opportunities. It happens everywhere all the time; but maybe this is as good a place as any to start prosecuting it.

Also this: “A black woman who for years helped Deen create her recipes and taught her to cook was paid less than $10.00 per hour.” Yeah, she made millions stealing African American food culture from a woman whom she paid ten bucks an hour.

ABC News: Preschoolers to get mental health checks

I’m sorry, what the fuck is this shit.

I get looking for autism spectrum disorders because it’s better to pick it up now than when they’re in high school and failing miserably,

but jesus fucking christ,

this is going way too far.

I get that as a country we have a lot of trouble with mental health but JEEZ YOU’RE NOT HELPING VERY MUCH. This sort of crap is NOT going to encourage people to get help, it’s only going to make them feel worse, and it sends completely the wrong message to these kids.

Iran expected to permanently cut off Internet by August

pieceinthepuzzlehumanity:

Millions of Internet users in Iran could soon be permanently cut off from the Web, social networks, and e-mail.

In a statement released last week, Reza Taghipour, the Iranian minister for Information and Communications Technology, announced it plans to establish a national intranet within five months in an effort to create a “clean Internet,” according to an International Business Times report. “All Internet Service Providers (ISP) should only present National Internet by August,” Taghipour said in the statement.

Web sites such as Google, Hotmail, and Yahoo will be blocked and replaced by government-administered services such as like Iran Mail and Iran Search Engine, according to the report. The government has already begun a registration process for those interested in using the Iran Mail that will verify and record user’s full name and address.

ALASKA LAWMAKER WOULD ONLY ALLOW WOMEN ABORTIONS WITH WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THEIR IMPREGNATORS (Yes, He’s a Republican.)
Alaska State Rep. Alan Dick says when a woman is pregnant, it’s not really “her pregnancy,” and thus should get permission before having an abortion.
He stated, “If I thought that the man’s signature was required… required, in order for a woman to have an abortion, I’d have a little more peace about it…” He didn’t say whether a rapist would be able to send his signature by fax from prison, or not. But he’ll have “peace” and women will require a permission slip for their own bodies.
