Clemson University issued an apology to students on Thursday after what appears to be a small group of students were offended by an annual Mexican cuisine event put on by university dining services.

Clemson Dining's "Maximum Mexican" night, has become a student favorite over the last several years, and this year was no different, at first.

Everything was going great. Students were loving the food and festivities. Except for two students, who took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the school's decision to host such a "#CUlturallyInsensitive" event.

"This is something that Clemson Dining has done for years without any sort of backlash. People love the cultural nights in the dining halls," Pendergist said. "What's next? Are they going to take away all potato based food as to not offend students from Irish decent? Remove the stir fry station so Asian-American students don't feel as if they are being misrepresented? When does it end?"

Vice: In 2001, Hans Boas was eating lunch in a diner deep in Central Texas. A couple of tables over, he heard a group of elderly men speaking a very distinct version of German. Boas has a doctorate in linguistics and was working at the University of Texas; he's dedicated his life to the German language and the people who speak it. Naturally, it came as a bit of a shock when he couldn't place this dialect. "I walked over and asked where they were from, and they said 'What do you mean? We've been here for generations,'" recalls Boas. "They told me about their language and how their ancestors came over long ago, which is something I didn't know about. I was floored by the whole thing. Here I was in the middle of the Texas hill country, learning about a new German dialect." read more

Fans have been left shocked by disturbing footage of John Lennon mocking disabled people.

The Beatles legend was an inspiration to many, but over the years his darker side has been revealed - and TV show It Was Alright In The 1960s has brought him back under fire.

We came across Johnny when we were filming for a new BBC2 series, "Countdown to Life", which looks at the consequences of normal, and abnormal, developments in the womb.

Johnny is known as a "Guevedoce", which literally means, "penis at twelve". And the reason he's called that is because, like 1 in 90 of the boys in the area, he first started to grow a penis when he was going through puberty.

Guevedoces are also sometimes called "machihembras" meaning "first a woman, then a man". When they're born they look like girls with no testes and what appears to be a vagina. It is only when they near puberty that the penis grows and testicles descend.

Johnny, who is now in his 20s, was once known as Felicita. He was brought up as a girl and remembers going to school in a little red dress.

When he was young he would happily play with other little girls, but after the age of seven he started to change

When is America going to get serious about the problem of white kids getting suspended from school for nothing?

By now you've heard the story of Ahmed Mohamed, crowned by the Daily Beast "The Muslim Hero America Has Been Waiting For" after the 14-year-old brought to school a beeping, strange-looking homemade concealed device that turned out to be a clock.

School officials, thinking, as 95% of Americans would, that it kinda looked like a bomb, hauled him out of class. Police put him in handcuffs and, even after the confusion passed, the boy was suspended from school.

That earned Mohamed a planned trip to the White House, a message of support from Hillary Clinton, an offer to stop by Facebook to meet Mark Zuckerberg and an invitation to be an intern at Twitter.


Goatman was honest enough to admit it in the other thread. In which he said there is no sacrifice he as a legal gun owner is willing to make to endure to try to address this issue. None.

That's right.

Tell me, snoofy, are you willing to make any sacrifice of your fourth amendment rights. Just a little tiny one that makes it easier for cops to get into the houses of bad guys and arrest them? That would make the country safer.


How about your fifth amendment rights? Are you willing to sacrifice a little bit to make sure that someone gets put away? Maybe like compelling a third offender to testify against himself? That would make the country safer.


Yet you expect honest people like me to give up my seecond amendment rights to make the country safer.

Typical proggie -- do as I say (or want), but not as I do (or expect to be treated.)

Tell you what: Let me know when you are ready to let the country give up some of their fourth or fifth amendment rights to make the country safer, and I'll swap some second amendment rights to make the country safer.

Deal? Or will you just be your typical leftie self and expect everyone else to make sacrifices and do the heavy lifting except you and your fellow lefties?

Rhetorical question, of course. Honest people know the answer.

You know, if the fourth and/or fifth amendment were looser, there would probably be fewer of these incidents. But your answer is to go after other citizen's rights that aren't important to you, but you'll be damned if anyone touches your sacred cow.
