A Kentucky woman was banned from JCPenneys after directing a racist tirade against shoppers ahead of her in the checkout line.
Just go back wherever the fuck you came from. Hey, tell them to go back where they belong. You know, they come here to live and they act like they're everybody else. Get in the back of the line like everybody else does.

A spokesperson said that the woman, once identified, will be "permanently banned from Jefferson Mall."

You love to see it.
When you first hear "emojis can be racist," it might sound like the kind of reductive hyperbole of progressive discourse that you'd find on Hannity as he tries to make a big deal out of a single stupid tweet that some intern dug up in order to further prove that the Culture War is real. […]

Physics may have been that class you sleepwalked your way through in high school. But while it might have just slipped under your radar throughout your academic career, you probably shouldn't have given it such shallow attention. Sure, we could focus on the immediate pluses of a career as a physicist, like the more than […]
If you're out of work…well, first, you have our sympathies. Right now, about 31 million Americans are drawing some form of unemployment benefits, which makes competition for virtually any job savagely fierce. But since nobody wants to wallow in the miseries of unemployment, the only legitimate course left open is to scrap like crazy to […]
