Congressional Black Caucus
After controversy erupted over new U.S. military grooming standards in April, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says amendments have been made to the Army, Air Force and Navy regulations.
It’s been a busy week for the Department of Defense with calls for a review of new military regulations concerning appearance that one soldier is even suing over.
U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has agreed to review the U.S. Army’s new grooming standards, which went into effect March 31 and have been called “racially biased.”
In a recently uploaded interview on YouTube, Dr. Ben Carson stated that the Congressional Black Caucus is acting in a racist fashion if it won’t allow non-blacks to join the organization.
The Justice Department will sue the state of North Carolina for alleged racial discrimination over tough new voting rules, the latest effort by the Obama administration to fight back against a Supreme Court decision that struck down the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Act and freed southern states from strict federal oversight of their elections.
