When the artist behind the classic Barack Obama “Hope” poster released an array of beautiful new images honoring diversity ahead of Trump’s inauguration, they quickly became icons of a more welcoming country.

However, administrators at Westminster High School in Carroll County, Maryland have reportedly banned teachers from displaying the posters on campus, saying they’re “anti-Trump” and just too political.

Students at the school, though, have found an ingenious way to get their point across. Many plan to wear T-shirts bearing those same images during a unified show of support on March 1, according to a “We the People – Stand with WHS” GoFundMe campaign. Read more…

Libraries are fighting back hard against Trump's America

Perhaps libraries and President Donald Trump were destined to be enemies.  The president has made it known that he’s not a man of books. Libraries, meanwhile, are filled with many more books than people. The president has made it known he’s not a fan of immigration. Libraries are often an integral part of the life of immigrants in the United States. These things are not like each other. SEE ALSO:…

8 things you can do instead of watch Milo beg for attention

Milo Yiannopoulos just wants you to listen to him — somewhere, anywhere.  You were supposed to listen to him at what would no doubt have been an eyebrow-raising speech at this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
