Former “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" star Alfonso Ribeiro is famous for his “Carlton” dance, but the U.S. Copyright Office doesn’t think it’s all that unique.

The largest American Indian tribe east of the Mississippi, North Carolina’s Lumbee, counts 55,000 members and has called the state’s southern coastal plain home for centuries. But to the federal government the tribe exists largely in name only.

Unlike the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in the Smokies, the Lumbee have no reservation and no glitzy casino.

Instead you might notice on a drive to the beach that U.S. 74 in Robeson County, Lumbee territory, is called American Indian Highway. Lumbee tribal offices are housed in a turtle-shaped building in Pembroke, the heart of their community. A school that opened there in 1887 to train American Indian teachers is now UNC Pembroke.

South of the highway, a state historical marker commemorates the Battle of Hayes Pond, in which armed Lumbees routed Ku Klux Klan members intent on intimidating them in 1958.

A white Florida woman is facing multiple charges after threatening a Black sheriff’s deputy in a racist rant after he arrested her for drunk driving.

Body camera audio picked up 53-year-old Julie Edwards telling Volusia County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Brandon King that her “KKK friends will burn [his] family,” that his “eyes will be poked out.” She railed “the KKK got your a** , boy.”

At one point she even asks King if he had ever been whipped.

“You should never be here in the first place. You ever been whipped on a whipping post?” she said.

According to Buzzfeed, Edwards is now facing charges of making threats against a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer without violence, driving under the influence, and prior refusal to submit to testing.

Out of the 466 colleges FIRE rates, this one has the most policies that substantially restrict free speech.

Almost 30 percent of colleges in FIRE’s Spotlight on Speech Codes 2019 report earn our worst, “red light” rating for maintaining at least one policy that clearly and substantially restricts protected speech. But no other school in our database maintains more of these policies than Alabama A&M University — it has five.

What’s causing Alabama A&M’s red light status? Harassment policies.

Colleges are legally obligated to respond to discriminatory harassment of their students. However, Alabama A&M maintains harassment policies that define harassment more broadly than the controlling Supreme Court standard, making constitutionally protected expression punishable.

In one of its five red light policies, Alabama A&M says harassment includes “negative stereotyping,” “nsulting … comments or gestures,” and comments that are merely “related to an individual’s age, race, gender, color, religion, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation.”

The civilian U.S. Army employee who fought off a group of suspected robbers – killing one with a kitchen knife – during an attempted home invasion in Germany said it was not a “simple burglary” as one man tackled his wife who was upstairs with their three children.

“While I fought three in my entry, one got past and made it upstairs to where my wife and children were,” he said. “After I fought off the three, got them out of the door – that is when I got the kitchen knife and went upstairs to get the fourth attacker, who had tackled my wife and was strangling and pinning her down.

Frustrated over what he calls disturbing incidents of bullying, harassment and assaults in public schools, a Maryland legislator is proposing a bill that would also target the parents of violent students.

Del. Robert Long, a Republican who represents Baltimore County, is the lead sponsor of a bill called "Student Misconduct for Parent or Guardian."

Long says if students have been suspended from school more than three times for violent or abusive behavior, a parent or guardian should be required to appear before a judge so they can be held liable.

Long says parents found liable would not face prison time but could face fines of up to $1,000.

Service-connected disabled veterans and their families will soon have access to certain new privileges under the recently signed John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019—several of which have been longstanding DAV legislative priorities.

Beginning in January 2020, service-connected veterans and their caregivers will be eligible to use base commissary stores and some morale, welfare and recreation facilities on bases worldwide. This provision—located under section 621 of the NDAA— comports with DAV Resolution Number 270.

In addition, veterans with a service-connected disability rated as permanent and total will soon be eligible to use space-available (Space-A) travel on DOD aircraft, in accord with DAV Resolution Number 274. Eligibility does not extend to spouses, significant others or caregivers, and those wishing to travel Space-A must have a DD Form 2765.
