Florida US Senator uses “N” Word

WireAP_22edb3f0af144cb1b49233203850b00d_12x5_1600 A US Senator from Florida was recently ousted for reportedly referring to colleagues by using the n-word to describe them. A representative for Senator Artiles claims that other Senators use similar language and, thus, Artiles should not have to face an investigation on the Senate floor. Majority leader Mitch McConnell cited a decorum rule prohibiting Elizabeth Warren from reading a letter from Coretta Scott King about AG Sessions during his confirmation hearing, as the rule states senators cannot disparage one another on the floor. We at honest action believe these rules should be revised to include disparaging speech off the floor as well.

UC Berkley has canceled a scheduled appearance by conservative pundit, Ann Coulter. This is another lecture by a conservative to be canceled at the university amid safety concerns. Some people are viewing the cancellation as an abridgment of free speech citing that a democrat wouldn’t have been canceled on. Here at Honest Action, we believe the cancellation justified as it was not motivated by party but by safety concerns for the general public.

After reading this article, you can clearly see that there are some major untrue facts. The controversy of this article makes it unbelievable in an of itself. This is why we believe higher regulations on freedom of speech is necessary. So us Americans do not have to deal with deciphering if an article we are presented with is true or untrue.

Racial Washing Anyone??

Grammy award winner and musical icon, Beyoncé Knowles is constantly being photo shopped by cosmetic brands for her skin to be made to appear lighter. This further contributes to the notion that lighter skin is more socially accepted and more attracted to audiences. This is also offensive to women of color and makes it difficult to support the beauty industry that excludes a variety of shades and lack diversity. Here at Honest Action we see no integrity in such actions.  Screen Shot 2017-04-15 at 11.26.16 PM
