"I think 'What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?" Kardashian told US. "And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and... I'm gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable."

"A black ninth-grader in Fairfax Country, Virginia was reading a Langston Hughes poem in class when his teacher instructed him to read it blacker, The Washington Post reports.

“She told me, ‘Blacker, Jordan — c’mon, blacker. I thought you were black,’ ” said Shumate, who is African American.When he refused to comply with her ridiculous request, the teacher read the poem herself. “She sounded like a maid in the 1960s,” Shumate told The Post. “She read the poem like a slave, basically.”
