High schoolers threaten to sue DeSantis over ban of African American studies course

Ron DiSanits

Three Florida high school students are poised to sue Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis after the state Education Department rejected a new Advanced Placement course covering African American studies. The news comes one day after the College Board announced it would revise the course.

"By rejecting the African American history pilot program, Ron DeSantis has clearly demonstrated that he wants to dictate whose history does — and doesn't — belong," Democratic state Rep. Fentrice Driskell said at a news conference in Tallahassee, announcing the lawsuit, on Wednesday.

Ben Crump, a high-profile civil rights attorney, said he will file the lawsuit on behalf of the three students if DeSantis does not allow the course to be taught in the state. The course is the latest addition to the AP program, which helps high school students earn college credit.

"This is what it's about, it's about them, this is what the fight is for," Crump said. "Never ever forget that."


Police search for shooter who killed at least three at Washington state Circle K store

Shooter kills three at Circle K store

At least three people were killed in a gun attack carried out at “random” on a convenience store in Washington state early on Tuesday, officials said, raising again the number of January mass shootings in the US.

The chief of the Yakima police department, Matt Murray, told reporters that a gunman entered a Circle K store in the city 150 miles south-east of Seattle in the early hours and opened fire on people inside.

The shooter then fired again into a car parked outside and took off in the vehicle after the driver moved over to the passenger seat, leaving officials uncertain if there was a possible fourth fatality.

“It appears to be a random situation. There was no apparent conflict between the parties. The male just walked in and started shooting,” Murray told a press conference, which was posted on Tuesday morning to Facebook.


DOJ Warns Rep. Jim Jordan It Won't Share Ongoing Probe Details To Protect 'Integrity'

Jim Jordan

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has sent a pointed letter to the new chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), signaling that it’s unlikely to share information about ongoing probes to safeguard the “integrity” of the investigations.

Additionally, the letter warned that the DOJ probably wouldn’t share any “non-public” information.

The letter read that the department is “committed to cooperating with the Committee’s legitimate efforts to seek information,” adding: “Any oversight requests must be weighed against the Department’s interest in protecting the integrity of its work.” Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte sent out the letter Friday to Jordan.


Trump’s political fate may have been decided – by a Georgia grand jury

Ga. may have sealed Trump's political fateEven as Donald Trump prepares to dial up his campaign to take back the White House, the former US president’s political and personal fate may already have been decided by the secret workings of a grand jury in Georgia.

The 23-member panel, convened to consider whether Trump and others committed crimes in trying to overturn his defeat in Georgia when it appeared the state might decide the outcome of the entire 2020 presidential election, was dissolved on Monday after submitting its conclusions and asking that they be made public.

If the grand jury’s report recommends prosecution, a county district attorney in Atlanta, Fani Willis, will face the most consequential decision of her career – whether, for the first time in American history, to charge a former president with a criminal offence.


Jeremiah Green, Modest Mouse Drummer, Dies Of Cancer At 45

Jeremiah Green dead at 45Jeremiah Green, the founding drummer for the rock band Modest Mouse, has died just days after the band announced he had been diagnosed with cancer. He was 45.

“Today we lost our dear friend Jeremiah. He laid down to rest and simply faded out,” according to a statement posted Saturday on the band’s social media accounts. “Please appreciate all the love you give, get, have given, and will get. Above all, Jeremiah was about love.”

Green was barely in his teens when he joined the newly formed Modest Mouse, which featured singer-guitarist Isaac Brock and bassist Eric Judy among others. Modest Mouse was originally based in the Seattle suburb Issaquah and later relocated to Portland. Its name originates from a passage by Virginia Woolf, who once described everyday individuals as “modest mouse-coloured people.”
