  • New working-age hires are mostly people of color for first time

    People of color make up the bulk of new working-age hires for the first time ever, according to an analysis from The Washington Post. Women have driven the trend, according to the Post, which cited Labor Department data going back to the 1970s. The trend has been driven both by a wave of retirements among white baby boomers and another wave of minority women entering the workforce in 2015, the newspaper noted. It added, however, that the demographics could be some of the first affected in a slowing job market. “We’ve seen a lot of gains in employment among lower-income...
  • Third of Dems Say It’s Racist For White People To Criticize Non-White Politicians

    The groupthink mentality in the Democratic Party has reached a new clown world level. A new poll out of Rasmussen reveals that a whopping 32% of Democrats and even 16% of Republicans say it is racist when a white person criticizes a non-white politician. So, to keep your views completely immune from criticism in 2019, just don’t be white. When the sample of 1,000 voters was asked if they thought President Trump was a racist, 47% said yes. This was down from similar polling data that said 50% to the same question back in January 2018. When asked to define...
  • State audit finds Davenport schools overidentify students of color for special ed programs

    DAVENPORT, Iowa — An Iowa state audit of Davenport’s special education program has found the district in “systemic non-compliance” with several parts of the federal law that governs the education of students with disabilities. The Iowa Department of Education told the district to work with a national expert to deal with a disproportionate number of students of color identified for special education services, as well as a disproportionate number of minority special education students subjected to disciplinary actions.

    Tribune Review (Suburban Pittsburgh) ^ | 19 December 2017 | New York Daily News
    I'm not sure, but more diversity in ownership would be a good start. At some point, people need to realize just how deeply embedded this culture of inequality is within the NFL. Texans owner Bob McNair thinks player protests are like “inmates running the prison,” and Giants owner John Mara would rather re-sign a domestic abuser than deal with the “emotional mail” from fans over signing Colin Kaepernick. Martha Ford of the Detroit Lions is one of the few female owners in the league, and even she tried to pay her players to stop kneeling earlier this season. Shahid Khan...

    A collective of colleges in Los Angeles suburb has been in an uproar for the past week over Facebook posts from students with one request for housing: No white roommates. A Facebook post from Karé Ureña, a junior at Pitzer College at the Claremont Colleges, asked for fellow students to join an off-campus house for the upcoming school year. “POC only,” she wrote, using the abbreviation for “people of color.” Ureña, who is black, added, “I don’t want to live with any white folks.” The post, first reported by the Claremont Independent student magazine, sparked outrage from the campus and...
  • Angry Yale students petition to 'decolonize' the school's English department

    Yale University has found itself embroiled in controversy once again this year after English students complained that courses in the department were 'hostile' to students of color. Under the most fire is the Major English Poets course, a prerequisite for undergraduates in the major to study the works of at least seven major poets, all of whom are white men. An anonymous petition has demanded the department not only change the English 125/126 course, which has existed since 1920, but abolish it entirely. It also asks that the major's pre-1800/1900 requirements be changed to include literature relating to 'gender, race...

    If it's illegal and considered racist for a white, straight business owner to deny service to a gay person or person of color, shouldn't the same be true for a yoga class that bars white people from attending? KIRO Radio's Dori Monson thinks so. Rainier Beach Yoga in Seattle has a class called "yoga for people of color." It started last week and runs once a month. Teresa Wang, co-founder of the specialized class, said it was started by five queer people of color who came together to create a safe space for people of color who might otherwise be...
  • Why Ferguson Should Matter to Asian-Americans

    Ferguson isn’t simply black versus white. A peculiar Vine floated around social media Monday evening following the grand jury announcement in Ferguson, Mo. The short video shows an Asian-American shopkeeper standing in his looted store, with a hands-in-his-pockets matter-of-factness and a sad slump to his facial expression. “Are you okay, sir?” an off-screen cameraman asks. “Yes,” the storeowner says, dejectedly. The clip is only a few seconds, but it highlights the question of where Asian-Americans stand in the black and white palette often used to paint incidents like Ferguson. In the story of a white cop’s killing of a black...

    During the latter part of the nineteenth century a coalition of moralists and social reformers sincerely thought that giving political power to women would eliminate all traditional social evils. After all, men had always ruled, and women were supposedly inherently more moral and more religious than men. Maybe this would fix everything. Thus the push for women's suffrage. And when it was all over, women were just like the men. I am going to suggest something absolutely outrageous. But it's been knocking around in my mind for a while, and I hope that the example of women's suffrage will show...

    Minuteman Project NR Guild Cinema Sat.: At noon New film documents how communities are standing up to vigilante patrols in the Mexico-U.S. border region. During April 2005 the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona and the American Friends Service Committee of Arizona joined forces to train "legal observers" for the Minuteman Project. The Minuteman Project was founded on the precept that people of color are "destroying" our society and the "invasion" from the south will result in the destruction of the United States of America. This documentary contains detailed footage from patrols last April. Legal Observing is currently under way...
  • Economy Improving Only For Whites?

    ***USA Today can't be linked due to copyright issues*** Minorities haven't felt economic growth By Sue Kirchhoff, USA TODAY The economic expansion has not been equal. Minorities lag behind whites in employment and earnings more than two years after the 2001 recession officially ended. African-Americans in particular have taken a big hit: suffering higher and longer unemployment than whites and dropping out of the labor force more rapidly. Black teen unemployment rose to 32.5% in May. Even in such areas as Washington, D.C., where unemployment is low and construction is surging, willing workers far exceed steady jobs. "There are too...

    Marc Edwards could not be more appalled as he watches President Bush push ahead with plans for war. If the United States invades Iraq, a disproportionate number of blacks will be among the troops, said the 45-year-old Harlem resident. Other minorities will be the war's victims, he said, adding that black families will be especially hard hit by its costs. "It's a war that's threatening to send this economy reeling and that's going to really hurt black people," Edwards, a bookstore marketing supervisor, said while standing on 125th Street. As Bush and his Cabinet continue trying to line up support...

Some of the most interesting answers can be read in our page: http://www.veniceword.com/aboutvenice2.html We publish here our response to a remark from a subscriber, who refers to our past issue: "I think for some of your American readers the word "colored" to describe African hawkers is quite offensive. I am sure that this was an innocent mistake but one that should be corrected. Simply saying "African" hawkers would be sufficient". Thanks for your remark: we apologize, it is a...
