While the nation and the world is looking at Indiana and wondering if discrimination exists, here’s a disturbing story of workplace racial bias and harassment involving a first responder – a firefighter.  Mikal Neal is a Marion Indiana firefighter; a community 81 miles from downtown Indianapolis off I-69 in Grant County.  In February Neal and his fellow firefighters were receiving training from Marion Fire Department Assistant Chief Rick Backs on how to properly tie knots in ropes. When Chief Backs came to Neal, instead of showing him a knot, he showed him a noose.  Not only was this a racial insult in the workplace, it had a more emotional and personal connection.  That’s because Mikal Neal’s wife, Rachel Fears-Neal, is related to Abram Smith, who with another Black man were lynched in Marion in 1930.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Johns Hopkins University faces a $1 billion lawsuit.

The lawsuit is being filed by nearly 800 former research subjects and their families.

They blame the institution for its role in government experiments in the 1940s and ’50s in Guatemala that infected hundreds of people with sexually transmitted diseases.

The lawsuit seeks to hold Hopkins responsible because its doctors held key roles in the experiments.

Hopkins says it will fight the lawsuit and released this statement to WJZ:

“Johns Hopkins expresses profound sympathy for individuals and families impacted by the deplorable 1940s syphilis study conducted by the U.S. Government in Guatemala.

Bucknell University Students Expelled Over Racist Remarks

Three Pennsylvania college students were expelled from school after they made disgustingly racist remarks including “lynch ’em” and “black people should be dead” over a radio broadcast.

The Huffington Post reports:

A private Pennsylvania college expelled three students over a campus radio broadcast in which they made racist comments and used a slur.

Bucknell University president John Bravman met with about 1,000 students and staff about the matter on Tuesday, a day after sending a late-night email revealing the expulsions.

“Their conduct is an affront to our values, damaging to our community and in clear violation of our community standards,” he wrote to students, faculty and staff on Monday.

Bravman did not identify the students but shared their comments from a March 20 WVBU-FM broadcast in “the interest of transparency and candor.”

He said one of the students used the N-word, a second…
