Celebrations of Valentine's Day and the other "dominant holidays" are ending at one St. Paul elementary school, according to a letter from the principal addressed to families.
Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School, whose student body is overwhelmingly nonwhite, explained in the letter that "my personal feeling is we need to find a way to honor and engage in holidays that are inclusive of our student population."

WEST HARTFORD — Nearly a year after Hall and Conard high schools decided to change the look of their Native American mascots to reflect a more inclusive society, T-shirts with the old logos are being sold by an unsanctioned student group, to the concern of students, staff and parents.
Rachel Corcoran-Adams, a Hall High School senior, said she stopped 15 freshman from buying the shirts on Friday during school hours. She said she feels her battle against the Native American imagery is like "David and Goliath," and has heard that Native Americans have spoken out about the issue and are "disgusted with the school and students."

Yadda yadda you don't really need to read it. Highlights:
1) Ctrl+F for "Asian" and get 0 results
2) The claim that blacks and women would help the company rests on some idiotic cherrypicked example
3) The lulzy attempt to blame the company's current failure on not having black engineers

Judge: Jackie Coakley not covered by patient-counselor privilege in ‘Rolling Stone’ defamation suit
Jackie Coakley can’t hide her secrets any longer.
The student at the heart of Rolling Stone‘s discredited gang-rape story has been ordered by a federal judge to turn over her communications with the magazine and author Sabrina Rubin Erdely, and even her counseling communications with the University of Virginia, though they won’t be made public.
UVA Associate Dean of Students Nicole Eramo is suing Rolling Stone for $7.5 million, claiming its portrayal of her and her interactions with Coakley are defamatory. Judge Glen Conrad earlier signaled he would force Coakley, who is not a party in the case, to turn over some communications that are relevant to Eramo’s claims against the magazine.
