    As not only the first female vice president but the first Black female vice president, Kamala Harris is blazing her own path in government. During every vice presidential term, that officeholder takes over the vice president’s residence in Washington, D.C., and redesigns it to fit their personal preferences. As previously reported by theGrio, Harris tapped renowned interior designer and fellow Black woman Sheila Bridges to design her official residence. Recognized for her vibrant and intricately layered design perspective influenced by architectural and historical cues, Bridges combined the home’s traditional look with Harris’ modern aesthetic. Among the many changes made in...

    A Los Angeles city official wants to ban cashless businesses in the area, arguing they exclude low-income people and others who don't carry credit cards. "Cashless businesses create an economy in our City that is not inclusive and accessible for all people," Councilwoman Heather Hutt said in a press release introducing a motion on the topic. "There are many unbanked groups, including BIPOC and low-income communities, that rely on cash to pay for goods and services." It comes as more businesses in the area are opting for cashless payments like credit cards or digital payments through apps. Those options, businesses...

    The ongoing demonstrations in Tel Aviv and other parts of Israel are about more than just opposing the specific policies that make up the government’s judicial reform package. They are about removing from power Benjamin Netanyahu, whom protesters say is a dictator and a criminal who cannot legitimately hold the office of prime minister.And according to some Israeli and American officials, those domestic opponents bent on overthrowing Netanyahu are being fueled by money from the US Administration of President Joe Biden.Last week US Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) charged Biden and the Democratic Party with “trying to sabotage Netanyahu.”Citing a report...

    MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow said Friday on “The ReidOut” that the Republican Party wants to “go back to the good old days where everybody was the same color.” Discussing Donald Trump, Elon Musk and Kanye West, Maddow said, “A certain proportion of the American public likes this stuff and falls for it over and over again and discovers it anew, the same way every new generation believes they discovered sex. Every new generation of Americans believes they have discovered this efficient wave of the future where slow, boring democracy lets all the wrong people have decision-making power instead will be...

    CNN — People of color – especially Black and Hispanic people – were less likely to receive Paxlovid and other Covid-19 treatments, according to a study published Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Throughout the pandemic, Black and Hispanic people have been about two times more likely than White people to be hospitalized or die from Covid-19. The new study showed Black Covid-19 patients were 36% less likely than White patients to be treated with Paxlovid, and Hispanic patients were 30% less likely than non-Hispanic patients to receive the antiviral pill. Nearly one in three White...

    On Aug. 2, I watched as a majority of voters in the county where I grew up (Seward County) in rural Kansas — a county that went for Trump by 29 points in 2020 — voted against the proposed constitutional amendment that would allow for an abortion ban. Statewide, voters rejected the ban by a stunning double-digit margin. I am part of a new generation of Latina leaders in Democratic politics, and there’s buzz in progressive circles about that vote in Kansas. It boosted optimism for the 2022 election, with good reason — if we understand the right lessons.

    President Joe Biden’s administration announced Tuesday a new Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ) to preserve “communities of color” from zoning restrictions and pollution, among other objectives. The OEJ will report to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and will sit within the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity at HHS, according to Xavier Becerra, secretary of HHS. Biden created the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity in 2021 to stop the warming of the globe.

    Black and Hispanic Americans are paying extra money to secure rental housing in the U.S. compared with Whites, according to Zillow. In a report this week, the real estate data firm said that, regardless of race, Americans paid an average of $700 in security deposits when renting an apartment. Yet renters of color paid $750 while White renters paid $600. White renters typically paid $50 for a rental application fee while Black Americans paid $65; Hispanic applicants paid $80 and Asian Americans paid $10. People of color also typically must submit more rental applications in order to find a place...

    PHOENIX (AP) — Skin tone impacts the everyday lives and the long-term success of Latinos in the United States, according to a Pew Research Center finding that comes as the issue of colorism has become more mainstream. The nonpartisan research center surveyed 3,375 Latinos who live in the U.S., finding that 62% say having darker skin hurts their chances of getting ahead while 59% say having light skin helps them. The study was released Thursday. It comes just months after colorism — discrimination based on skin tone, often from within someone’s own ethnic group — captured wide attention with the...

Getty In a historical step to redress racism, the USDA was poised to issue $4 billion in debt relief to farmers of color. White farmers and banks pushed back, in an attempt to uphold the racist structures they've benefitted from for centuries. Black farmers won't overcome racism until they take the levers of finance into their own hands and forge their own financial institutions. This month, in a historic step to redress racism, the United States...

    The flavor of a tomato is an interaction between its taste and aroma. Now, researchers from Japan and the United States have revealed that the pigments that determine the colors of tomatoes also affect their flavor. In a study published this month, researchers from University of Tsukuba developed a new method to rapidly measure the pigment profiles of tomatoes and used the technique to explore how pigments affect the taste and aroma of different tomato varieties. The color of tomatoes is produced by combinations of different types of pigments, including carotenoids and chlorophylls. These pigments can also affect the accumulation...

    Culture plays a significant role when it comes to associating symbolic or hidden meanings with different colors. China is a country rich with heritage, and uses colors symbolically within every ceremony, festival, and ritual. Compared to Western culture, China has a different and more powerful scale of color symbolism. The Five Elements Theory (Metal, Fire, Water, Wood, and Air) play a very important role in influencing many of the Chinese customs and beliefs. The color theory is based on these five elements, and five of the most popular colors in China also correspond to these five elements. Black = water?...

    As COVID-19 continues to spread, researchers are looking for new and creative ways to help detect and manage cases. A team at the University of California San Diego is developing something to help do just that: a color-changing sticker. The sticker is a test strip and blister pack that can be placed on N95, surgical or cloth masks and detect SARS-CoV-2 in the user's breath or saliva, according to a news release from the university. As the person wearing the mask breathes, the test strip aims to detect protein-cleaving molecules produced from a COVID-19 infection. Once the user removes the...

    For those readers who may be unfamiliar with the term “Color Revolution”, it refers to what has now become the standard technique for promoting “regime change” in targeted nations. The term may have its origins in the works of Gene Sharp, who wrote some guidebooks on how to organize popular revolts using Madison Avenue-style marketing techniques. He recommended to the sponsors that rather than confusing or boring the participants with too much political theory, they should motivate their budding revolutionaries with pop culture, using catchy, content-free slogans, logos, and team colors. Color Revolutions are expensive ($5 billion in the case...
