Facebook apologizes after employees complain about racist company culture

China’s latest tactic: Call America racist

Put that all together and Zhao’s tweets seem to be nothing more than a desperate “Hail Mary” attempt thrust into the lap of a mid-level bureaucrat that Beijing can hope nobody remembers if this doesn’t go anywhere. But it could end up as a strong positive for the U.S. in another way if this incident helps us all realize that as real as our racism problems still are, not everyone talking about them has our best interests at heart.

Ms. Grant says she and her team of student researchers presented the report to university administration, which included Ms. Cant, before the official launch of Being Raced in September. She hopes the report brings change to Laurier, without the university needing to conduct further research. “This was way too much labour for racialized people to [take on]. It wasn’t enough to say we’re experiencing it,” Ms. Grant says. “It’s 2019. It’s so hard to prolong this inclusion and diversity talk.

The Greatest White Privilege Is Life Itself

White privileges are the relative advantages racism affords to people identified as white, whether white people recognize them or deny them. To be white is to be afforded one’s individuality. Afforded the presumption of innocence. Afforded the assumption of intelligence. Afforded empathy when crying or raging. Afforded disproportionate amounts of policy-making power. Afforded opportunity from a white network. Afforded wealth-building homes and resource-rich schools. Afforded the ability to vote quickly and easily.  Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/the-greatest-white-privilege-is-life-itself

peter buttigieg responds to past remarks about minority students

@Morning_Joe @MSNBC @PeteButtigieg held a town hall in Sioux City, IA last night and was asked by an audience member about the article in @TheRoot. I captured the full response, but wanted to share at least what I could here so Americans can see Pete’s response.

During a 2011 public television broadcast while he was a candidate for mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg said children "need to see evidence that education is going to work for them ... and there are a lot of kids, especially in the lower income, minority neighborhoods, who literally just haven't seen it work. There isn't somebody they know personally who testifies the value of education." Those comments, which resurfaced on social media this week, drew sharp criticism online, including in an essay by Michael Harriot titled "Pete Buttigieg is a lying MF" published on the African American-oriented website The Root.

Anti-racism report makes uncomfortable reading for Government Human rights body highlights many fail

IHREC argues that “while political debates should be free and open, they should not be characterized by a political discourse that is of a discriminatory and racist nature”.

Emails Confirm Stephen Miller Linking Immigrants with Violence & Crime

Stephen Miller linked immigration to violence in emails to Breitbart News – writing of crimes committed by nonwhites that “each one [is] more disturbing than the next.” “It has never been easier in American history for illegal aliens to commit crimes of violence against Americans,” Miller, now White House senior policy adviser, argued in a Jan. 5, 2016, email with the subject line “off-the-record observation.” Full Article: https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/post/emails-confirm-miller-s-twin-obsessions-immigrants-and-crime

A really, really long list of awful things Boris Johnson has said about women, LGBT+ people and people of color

At the BBC Question Time Leaders Debate this week, prime minister Boris Johnson was asked about numerous offensive comments he’s made about ethnic minorities, LGBT+ people and women over the years.

Looking rather uncomfortable, he defended his comments, saying: 

I defend my right to speak out.
If you go through all my articles with a fine tooth comb and take out individual phrases, there is no doubt you can find things that can be made to seem offensive.

The First Step Act promised widespread reform. What has the criminal justice overhaul achieved so far?

More than 3,000 inmates have been released and another roughly 1,700 people convicted of crack cocaine offenses have seen their sentences reduced thanks to the First Step Act, according to data from the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Sentencing Commission. Some of that activity stems from a 2011 change made by the federal sentencing commission affecting people convicted of certain drug crimes and a provision of the First Step Act. That provision made the sentencing guidelines of the Obama-era Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 retroactive.

What’s Lost When Black Children Are Socialized Into a White World

Not all children so gracefully develop survival strategies that allow them to participate in predominantly white schools while also resisting and even transforming the culture. Aya de Leon directs Poetry for the People, an arts and activism program that’s part of UC Berkeley’s African American Studies Department. She said her students carry different types of burdens, depending on the type of high school they attended. “If you’re in a hood school, the harms are clear, and you know when they’re happening that you’re being harmed,” she said, and pointed to physical fights and subpar academic offerings as among the problems. “In these white environments, you’re being harmed, and you don’t even know it because you think there is something wrong with you. [You think] if only you could get these white people to like you,” then everything would be okay.
