Above is Kevin DeAnna, president of the nonprofit group Youth for Western Civilization, at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. In case you don't know, YWC is an organization that seeks "to organize, educate, and train activists dedicated to the revival of Western Civilization." It's also a hate group, and it's slowly spreading to university campuses around the country.


Though DeAnna claims in this video to be nothing more than a conservative sympathizer, the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hatewatch arm has been following DeAnna's movements for years now, and it begs to differ. According to Hatewatch, DeAnna, who is now a graduate student at American University, has been involved pretty directly with noted racist youth groups for quite some time:

[DeAnna] has posted several times in recent years to the Spartan Spectator, the website of the Michigan State University chapter of Young Americans for Freedom, or MSU-YAF.

In 2007, the Southern Poverty Law Center identified MSU-YAF as a hate group after it organized a “Catch an Illegal Alien Day” game, sponsored a “Koran desecration contest,” jokingly threatened to distribute small-pox infected blankets to Native American students, posted “Gays spread AIDS” fliers, called Latino students and faculty members “savages,” and invited Nick Griffin, the chairman of the neofascist British National Party, to speak on the MSU campus.

Another YWC associate is Marcus Epstein. According to Hatewatch, Epstein had once identified himself as a co-founder of YWC, but he's since retracted that statement. What is known for sure is that Epstein is a close friend of DeAnna's and the YWC, and that, in 2007, he was arrested for karate chopping an African-American woman in the head and calling her a "nigger" in downtown D.C. According to witnesses, Epstein was completely unprovoked in the assault—he just wanted to hit a black person.

The student activism organization For Student Power says that YWC currently has chapters at nine locations, including Vanderbilt University, Elon University, and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. They're also actively recruiting new chapters all the time. All you need to join is four members, a permanent mailing address, and a desire to destroy multiculturalism, which the YWC says is "really about destroying and dispossessing the people and culture of the West, not about an appropriate education about other peoples."

McDonalds sells a lot of coffee. Over a billion cups a year, to be exact. All that coffee leads to a lot of productive mornings, but it also leads to a lot of waste. Each year, millions of pounds of coffee chaff (the skin of the coffee beans that comes off during roasting) ends up getting turned into mulch. Some coffee chaff just gets burned, leading to an increase in CO2.

Now, that chaff is going to get turned into car parts. Ford is incorporating coffee chaff from McDonalds coffee into the headlamps of some cars. Ford has been using plastic and talc to make its headlamps, but this new process will reduce the reliance on talc, a non-renewable mineral. The chaff is heated to high temperatures under low oxygen and mixed with plastic and other additives. The bioplastic can then be formed into shapes.

For over 20 years, our country has perceived itself as more divided than united, and it's not getting better. Right after the 2016 election, a poll conducted by Gallup found that 77% of Americans felt the country was divided on the most important values, a record high.

The percentage of Americans who agree that we disagree got higher. During the 2018 mid-term elections, a poll conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal found that 80% of Americans felt the nation was "mainly" or "totally" divided.

We head into the 2020 presidential election more divided than ever. A new poll from USA Today found that nine out of ten respondents felt it was important to do something about the conflict in our country. We can't keep on living like this forever.

The problem with American Sign Language (ASL) is that over 500,000 people in the U.S. use it, but the country has over 330 million people.

So for those with hearing loss, the chances of coming into contact with someone who uses the language are rare. Especially outside of the deaf community.
