    Dr. Fauci explained the decision to roll out booster shots depends on the performance of “people who are in the clinical trials to see how long the level of high protection lasts.” “When it starts to taper off, then we’ll seriously consider needing a booster,” Dr. Fauci added. Even with this news about possible booster shots, there is still a large swath of Americans who have not had their first round of vaccinations. Dr. Fauci feels the imperative for people of color is to get vaccinated, and highlighted that he is using commencement addresses during this graduation season to push...
  • People of color more exposed than whites to air pollution

    Across America, people of color are exposed to more air pollution than whites from industry, vehicles, construction and many other sources, a new study has found. Using government air pollution and census data, researchers found that disproportionate numbers of non-white people were exposed to potentially hazardous fine particle pollution from nearly all major U.S. emission sources, regardless of where they live or how much money they make. The study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, also found that Blacks were the only group disproportionately exposed to each of the pollution sources examined. Researchers found that on average Black, Hispanic...

    I voluntarily signed up for the first or second time the university offered a certificate course in “Diversity Training.” Each week we learned about another demographic group in our society — Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Gays, Women, the Elderly, Indo-Asians — and then we would bond as a group each week at a group lunch at a restaurant themed around that group: a Black “Soul Food” restaurant, a Mexican restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, an Indian restaurant. I privately approached the program director and said, “Y’know, for all the sensitivity and group bonding, you are isolating me as an Orthodox Jew. All...

    One school district in Washington state has evidently decided that Asians no longer qualify as persons of color. In their latest equity report, administrators at North Thurston Public Schools—which oversees some 16,000 students—lumped Asians in with whites and measured their academic achievements against "students of color," a category that includes "Black, Latinx, Native American, Pacific Islander, and Multi-Racial Students" who have experienced "persistent opportunity gaps."

  • Cult Programming in Seattle. The city is training white municipal employees to overcome their “internalized racial superiority.”

    City Journal ^ | July 8, 2020 | Christopher F. Rufo
    Last month, the City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” a program designed to help white workers examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy” and “interrupt racism in ways that are accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.” Hoping to learn more, I submitted a public records request for all documentation related to the training. The results are disturbing. At the beginning of the session, the trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority,...

    For the majority of people of color who believe Donald Trump is a racist unworthy of reelection, the Republican president can point to Alice Marie Johnson. The 64-year-old African American great-grandmother spent 21 years in prison for a nonviolent drug offense before Trump commuted her sentence in 2018. She then became the unwitting star of his reelection campaign’s $10-million Super Bowl ad, which featured footage of Johnson’s emotional release from prison as she praised “Donald John Trump.” “I’m an African American woman and he signed my paper. How could I turn around and say he’s a racist?” Johnson said in...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    ***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...
