You linked this PDF in another post that seems to spell it out. I'm guessing you found this out after writing this post:

Careful. There is no law that says you have to take affirmative measures to ensure that your housing ads reach all races equally, BUT it is illegal to INTENTIONALLY skew housing ads to disproportionately target, or avoid targeting, specific races. More info here [hud.gov]. So would it be illegal for someone advertising an apartment for rent to use Facebook's service? Maybe. If they were using it to ensure they were reaching all races equally, that would likely be legal. Otherwise, likely illegal. The same is true for ads for employment and credit. Other advertisers face no such restrictions.

These days, at least in my state, almost all of the former community colleges ARE four year colleges. In addition, if you complete an AA you are guaranteed a spot at a state UNIVERSITY (it may not be your first pick), so you haven't really screwed yourself if you screwed up high school.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sci... I admit, It's the daily mail. But do you have any sources for your claims? Or just name calling? Any ship that can run diesel (pretty much all of them) can run bunker fuel. They switch to cleaner fuels to meet regulations when coming in to certain ports, thats about it. I'm not claiming every cruise ship uses bunker fuel, but some obviously seem to. Here's more: http://www.cruiselawnews.com/t... , and here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Most cruise ships are powered by bunker fuel, an extremely low-quality, high-polluting fuel blend. Carnival first experimented with scrubbers several years ago, installing a system on a Holland America ship, Tom Dow, Carnival's vice-president for public affairs, explains. However, it took up too much space and released large amounts of polluted wastewater. Carnival scrapped the program. No, cruise ships predominately use bunker fuel.
