“NFL Owners Decide To Punt In Meeting On Political Protests”


HUFFINGTON POST

“NFL owners met Tuesday with leaders from the NFL Players Association to hash out the issue of athletes protesting racial inequality by taking a knee during the national anthem.

If the early reports are any indication, neither party took a strong stand for or against the protests.

The four-hour discussion concluded instead with what seems like an extension of the status quo, according to Sports Illustrated senior NFL reporter Albert Breer. For now, players will continue to make their own decisions.” MORE

“Jeff Sessions just threw every transgender American to the wolves”


SALON

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a memo this morning declaring that the Department of Justice does not interpret Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as offering protections to transgender individuals in the workplace. This is a sharp reversal from the Obama-era interpretation.

“Although federal law, including Title VII, provides various protections to transgender individuals, Title VII does not prohibit discrimination based on gender identity per se,” Sessions wrote. “This is a conclusion of law, not policy. As a law enforcement agency, the Department of Justice must interpret Title VII as written by Congress.” MORE

“Trump’s Justice Department says gays aren’t eligible for civil rights protections”


SALON

“Under President Barack Obama, the Department of Justice staunchly supported gay rights. Those days are long gone.

The Department of Justice filed an amicus brief on Wednesday, claiming that the 1964 Civil Rights Act does not extend to sexual orientation, according to a report by CNN. Title VII of the landmark legislation protects employees from discrimination based on color, national origin, race, religion and sex — but doesn’t actually include sexual orientation.”  MORE
