Regents denounce Senate budget proposal

Athletics is a separate corporation. KU can't just decide to take money from it.

Kansas City's Spin Pizza coming to Sixth and Wakarusa area; rumor of another restaurant for South Iowa; Mojo's chicken wings make a return

Oh, but Spin is different and in many ways better than what we have already. I think it's a welcome addition!

Proposals advance to change how Kansas picks highest court

This seems like another case of fixing a problem that isn't really there.

Kansas city bans sexual orientation discrimination

First, sex and gender are two different things. Sex is assigned at birth, but gender identity is internal. This explains it better than I ever could - http://www.apa.org/pi/lgbt/resources/...

Race is socially constructed, because humans feel the need to categorize things, we put ourselves into boxes. My father is Mexican and my mother is Caucasian, and while on the outside I present as Caucasian, I identify as Hispanic, and when asked to check a box that's the box I check.

One could attempt to change their physical appearance to look closer to the race they identify as, just as those who identify differently than the sex they were assigned can, but it's an individual choice to make those physical changes.

To directly answer your question, though, I would say yes, someone can identify as a different race. How you identify is entirely a personal choice and not based on the color of your skin. Whether you will be recognized as that race I can't speak to because that will depend on who you're asking to recognize it.

Tea and juice shop to open at Sixth and Wakarusa; West Lawrence grocer making progress

A grocery store out east near the roundabouts on O'Connell would be nice. (Though, would have been most useful during this and the next few years of road construction.)
