"I fear that this law will cause my professors to avoid discussing race and gender altogether, which will result in my perspective and lived experience as a Black, female student being effectively minimized and erased in the classroom," Dauphin said in a statement.

Well, yeah, honey, that's the whole point.

Stop the Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees Act

Shouldn't that be the Stop WAOKE Act?

It just emphasizes the fact that they think kids are the property of parents.

How do you do, fellow jurists. Have you heard about the new popular televised media entertainment program called 'Stranger Things'? It's quite contemporary and cosmopolitan. It has a conceptualized fictional location called 'Upside Down', which in a particularly piquant drollery is referring to not to one's orientation in space but to the customs and behaviors of its inhabitants and its very laws of nature! I find this to be quite apropos to the case at law we argue today, and thus my reference to widely known cultural phenomena is both timely and cogent!

"the first four plaintiffs named above are Black professors who argued that the law will affect their ability to teach freely about about privilege, racism, and Critical Race Theory"

Well yea that's the whole point.

From a layman's perspective, I don't think I've seen a bigger violation of the First Amendment in my entire lifetime. It didn't just cross the line, it hurdled over it screaming "We just don't farking caaaaaarrrreeeeee!" the whole time.

That's gonna shut down the Daytona paper's Sports section.
Don't say "race".  As if.

Originally the 'It's Okay to be White' Act. But that was a klan slogan so they had to change it.

5. A person, by virtue of his or her race, color, national origin, or sex bears responsibility for, or should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment because of, actions committed in the past by other members of the same race, color, national origin, or sex.

Sooo... I'm not responsible for any actions committed by Americans before me? Like, say, honoring treaties? Florida says screw you, native Americans!
 
2022-08-19 2:18:29 PM  
This is one of those cases where they came up with the name long before they had words to fill the acronym. Makes me wonder who is in charge of that. Or is there a a few meetings to bang out ideas to come up with something makes sense in their heads. Either way, excellent use of taxpayers money.

Its amazing how these people like to cite the 2nd amendment so much and have no clue about the first.

Judge just ruled the law unconstitutional, but I suspect DeathSantis will fight it up to the Supremes.

From its inception I kept reading about it trying to figure out how they cleverly worded things so as not to get struck down on a 1st Amendment challenge. Joke was on me, it was just a propaganda effort that would make the Chinese Communist party blush. They want it struck down just in time for the authors to campaign against those darned activist judges.

Wait they actually called it "Stop the WOKE Act"? Just when ya think the Right can't get any more cringe and facepalm, they get more cringe and facepalm.

No kidding. You don't see California and New York enacting legislation to ban guns and ammo magazines from grocery stores, mandating vegan only food options, or whatever it is that stereotypical liberals do in those states.

I feel like that's hardly the weirdest thing a judge has alluded to, even this year.

You're not wrong, but wait till you hear about Ag-gag laws. The milk thread wouldn't be as divisive if people were even allowed to know what happens to farm animals.

My mom still likes to argue with me that welfare is slavery and marriage is sacred between men and women.

Also she's becoming increasingly senile, probably due to advanced age combined with years of urban lead exposure.

The people you really have to worry about are the gas station sunglasses dickbags in their early 50s. The ones who can still walk upright. The ones who have worked as construction contractors for thirty years and somehow still manage to f*ck up every single project they are on, to the point that it's a running joke in my neighborhood that no one can find a contractor to recommend for most jobs. The ones who love to share their 'expert opinions' on every single subject they have any kind of mild understanding of.

We have to worry about them because they are seemingly farking everywhere outside of your urban/suburban bubble and despite the fact that they are consistently 3 hours late to every job, they vote in every election.

"Arms" alongside "speech" and "press" are inclusive terms automatically applicable to current times without needing to be updated. Weakening any of the Constitutional protections weakens them all. Do it right or do without.

Republicans are against "woke", which means awareness, just like they are against justice and freedom.
Trash people.

Because telling the state facilities they have to accommodate different dietary restrictions is the same a history denial and blocking free speech

Yes, and I think it may even get overturned along the way by one of the other 5 million right wing judges McConnell has shoe-horned into place.

Those pictures sadden me because when "Barbecue Bob" Graham came to our Junior High, in the former black high school, he faced some straight up hostility.  My friend Robby asked him why he got the nickname "Barbecue Bob" and he said, "who says that?"  We all just nodded and went "uh-huh."
School shooters really have no taste at all.
