Baltimore Professor: White People Need To Personally Give All Their Money To Black People

Marine Corps Dad Banned from Daughter’s High School Graduation had Complained when School Taught her how to Convert to Islam!

Constitution reports:
After Suing Maryland Public School For Teaching Their Daughter HOW TO CONVERT TO ISLAM, USMC Veteran & Father Banned from Daughter’s Graduation

Maryland parents Melissa and John Wood sued the Charles County Public Schools System, the Board of Education of Charles County, and the principal and vice principal of La Plata High School for violating their daughter’s civil rights under U.S. Code 42 (1983). Not only is the school instructing students to learn and perform Islamic rituals, it prohibits students from taking home the textbook in which Islamic ideology is taught. And after Mr. Wood, an 8-year U.S. Marine Corps veteran complained, the school issued a “no trespass” order– from the public school where his daughter attends. And banned him from attending his daughter’s graduation.

Wood claims he fought to defend the freedom of public school education– and yet he and his family have been retaliated against– by the very school his actions and taxpayer dollars support.

John Wood was deployed in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. After serving in the Marine Corps, he became a firefighter and responded to the Pentagon attack on September 11, 2001.

The Woods claim in the lawsuit that the school system and its administrators have repeatedly violated his daughter’s First Amendment rights by promoting “Islam over other faiths, such as Christianity or Judaism.”

Poll: Clinton, Trump in virtual dead heat on eve of first debate

The Washington Post reports:
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will meet Monday night for their first debate in a virtual dead heat in the race for the White House, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, with the Democratic nominee’s August advantage erased after recent difficulties and the GOP nominee still facing doubts about his qualifications and temperament.

Likely voters split 46 percent for Clinton and 44 percent for Trump, with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson at 5 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein at 1 percent. Among registered voters, Clinton and Trump are tied at 41 percent, with Johnson at 7 percent and Stein at 2 percent.

In a two-way matchup between the major-party nominees, Clinton tops Trump by 49 percent to 47 percent among likely voters, and the two are tied at 46 percent among all registered voters. Clinton’s two-point edge among likely voters, in both the four-way and two-way ballot tests, is within the survey’s 4.5 percentage-point margin of sampling error.
Snapshot of the race.
