TOWSON, Md. (WBFF) - Upset parents are contacting Baltimore County Schools about a slide that was shown in their child's history class this week at Loch Raven High School.
The slide featured a picture of President Trump above pictures of a swastika and hammer-and-sickle.
Over the picture of the president are the words "Wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall." The words "been there" and "done that" appear under the pictures of the swastika and hammer and sickle. A banner on the side reads "Oh that's why it sounds so familiar!"
Parents are questioning whether the slide was part of a history lesson or if the teacher was spreading political ideology.
The parents didn’t want to be identified because they're afraid of negative repercussions for their children at the high school.
They say the image was put up in class on Wednesday.
One case that is winding its way through court right now is from October of last year, when a dog seemingly came from nowhere to attack a 5-year-old girl walking into a Colorado Springs church. Disturbing video footage from the church security cams shows the dog running from a nearby neighborhood into the parking lot, then jumping onto the little girl and pulling her down. The child was fortunately uninjured, and the owner was charged with unlawful ownership of a dangerous animal. The humane society says this type of incident is common and is an example of what needs to be reported, for everyone's safety.
"As providers of Animal Law Enforcement, public safety is a top priority -- it is our duty to protect people from pets, and pets from people,” said Jamie Norris, director of ALE at HSPPR, in a statement to media Wednesday. “If you witness any violence or abuse to an animal or by an animal, we urge you to contact our team. We’re better together, and with community support, we can make 2020 a safer year for both the people and the pets of El Paso and Pueblo counties.”
A video has made the rounds on social media showing a Kansas teacher standing in the middle of class, with students around him, claiming whites are the superior race and that's why whites own everything.
It is unclear what the context is or which school.
Mysterious footage of Diego Maradona appears to show his coaching staff deliberately blocking television cameras while the World Cup-winning legend is handed an unknown package on the bench during an Argentine league match.
Maradona, who currently manages struggling Gimnasia de la Plata side in Buenos Aires, lost 1-0 to fifth-place Rosario Central in the Superliga on Saturday. In curious scenes on the bench, television cameras appear to show one of Maradona’s coaching staff approaches the 59-year-old to hand him an unidentified package.
Maradona struggled with cocaine addiction during his playing days, allegedly picking up the habit while playing for Napoli in the 1980s, and caused numerous health problems.
It sadly continued throughout his career and the player was banned from football after testing positive for the drug during the USA '94 World Cup while playing for Argentina. It marked a sad decline for a player who had captained his nation to World Cup glory just eight years earlier in 1986, his annus mirabilis.
LAS VEGAS - A prank group is apparently looking to send an aerial message ahead of Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Las Vegas.
Known as P.U.T.I.N., or Pigeons United To Interfere Now, the group shared footage of various pigeons wearing tiny red “Make America Great Again” hats, which are a hallmark of President Donald Trump’s campaign.
According to a press release from the group, the pigeons are trained and were released in Downtown Las Vegas, just north of the Paris Theater where the debate is being held.
“One of the pigeons, the leader of the flock, was adorned with a small, orange hairpiece, to commemorate that of their leader, President Donald J. Trump,” according to the press release. “The project was the result of months of exhaustive research, logistical hurdles and pigeon caretaking.”
Complex-Dwyane Wade recently appeared on Ellen to talk about his 12-year-old child Zaya coming out as a transgender girl. "First of all me and my wife, Gabrielle Union, we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community and we're allies as well," he said, making it clear that his daughter has his full support.
Boosie Badazz decided to criticize Wade's support in a rant on Instagram.
"I gotta say something about this shit, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too fucking far, dawg," the 37-year-old said, before quickly delving into more transphobic comments. "That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon' be. They don’t have shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his dick be gone—how he gon'—like, bruh, you going too far, dawg."
A brawl broke out between two attendees of a Bernie Sanders rally in Colorado on Sunday evening.
The fight, which broke out while the presidential candidate was speaking at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver and was captured on video, happened after a Sanders supporter confronted another man wearing a T-shirt that said “Black Guns Matter.”
The man wearing the shirt, who is black, told KCNC he was recording the Sanders rally when the other man came up to him and called him a “racist.”
“He had a problem with the shirt I was wearing,” the man, who did not identify himself to the channel, said. “I was recording the event, he walks up and calls me a racist. But I thought, ‘What’s he know about black lives, about discrimination, or, for that matter, the representation of the shirt.'”
The confrontation quickly escalated, with the fight spilling over a metal barrier and the two men falling onto the ground not far from the rally crowd.
Total madness and chaos erupted at the McDonalds in Union Square NYC when a man started beating another. A woman, who seemed to be with the man getting assaulted tried to defend him and was chased by the same individual, this time holding a chair.
The fight lasts for about 4 minutes and the words 'BLACK POWER' are heard, presumably yelled by the shirtless assaulter.

Justin T. Carter, 30, was masked and armed with a handgun when he entered the Raising Cane's, 1250 Bardstown Road, just before 10 p.m. Saturday, according to an arrest citation.
Carter brandished the gun at an employee and demanded money, according to the arrest citation.
