    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — If you are Black or Hispanic in a conservative state that already limits access to abortions, you are far more likely than a white woman to have one. And if the U.S. Supreme Court allows states to further restrict or even ban abortions, minority women who already face limited access to health care will bear the brunt of it, according to statistics analyzed by The Associated Press. The potential impact on minority women became all the more clear on Monday with the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion suggesting the court’s conservative majority is poised to overturn the landmark 1973 decision legalizing abortion. When it comes to the effect on minority women, the numbers are unambiguous. In Mississippi, people of color comprise 44% of the population but 81% of women receiving abortions, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which tracks health statistics. ___ EDITOR’S NOTE — This is an updated version of a story released earlier this year. ___ In Texas, they’re 59% of the population and 74% of those receiving abortions. The numbers...
    An aerial view shows cars parked at the Tesla Fremont Factory in Fremont, California, on Feb. 10, 2022. by Umme Hoque This article was originally published at Prism. For a little under a year, Owen Diaz worked as a contract elevator operator at Tesla’s factory in Fremont, California. During his stint, he dealt with and witnessed constant racism, offensive images on the bathroom walls, and profanity-laced taunts like “go back to Africa.” His supervisors failed to help, so he turned to the courts. His lawsuit accused Tesla of using a fake, progressive image to veil its “regressive, demeaning treatment of African American employees.” In late 2021, the courts agreed, awarding him $137 million. Diaz celebrated the victory—but pointed out he wasn’t alone. “It’s God’s justice that this happened, you know, and allowed me to talk for people who can’t talk for themselves,” Diaz said. “They have to choose to either take the abuse that these billion-dollar companies are putting out or feed their families,” Bernard Alexander is a partner at Alexander Morrison + Fehr LLP and one of...
    Parents in Texas have told of their anger after their fifth grade daughter was left in tears after an immersive introduction to segregation before being shown autopsy photos of four black children murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. Students at Leon Springs Elementary in San Antonio, which has 524 pupils from kindergarten to fifth grade, were taught about segregation in January. During the class, the children were separated into groups of dark haired and fair haired students. They were then given a series of tasks and duties. The dark-haired students were deemed privileged, and told they were superior, with youngsters who had blond or red hair deemed less intelligent and inferior.  Both sets of students were given a puzzle to complete, but the light-haired students had a piece missing. The light-haired students also had to clean up after the other group at the end of the exercise. Mike and Brandi Lininger, whose 10-year-old daughter attends Leon Springs, said they were angered by the segregation class at the school, which left their child disturbed Sinclair Broadcast Group Privacy Policy Leon...
    KENDALL Jenner hit the runway in Milan on Thursday at the Prada show. But all eyes weren't on her outfit. 5Kendall Jenner walked the runway in MilanCredit: Getty 5She wowed the crowd with her auburn hairCredit: Reuters Instead, Kendall turned heads with her wild new auburn hairdo. The 26-year-old modeled an oversize navy, feather-trim puffer jacket and see-through skirt. And there in the front row to cheer her on was her sister, Kim Kardashian. Kendall's concealing Prada outfit was a whole lot more than she was recently wearing, when she posed completely nude for her sexy i-D magazine photoshoot. In a breathtaking black and white snap, the Victoria's Secret Model bared all as she stretched out her naked body across the floor.  For the other black and white themed-photo, the supermodel's hair was soaking wet as she modeled in a bikini near a swimming pool.

    (CNN)Texas cattle rancher Deydra Steans quit her teaching job three years ago to help save her family's farming operations. She was prepared for the strenuous task of herding animals. Steans, 41, usually begins her day at 7 a.m. with her 68-year-old father, Elvin Steans. The pair talk over breakfast and a cup of coffee and then head out onto their ranch to feed cattle. She often drives the skid steer, a subcompact tractor that is used for a variety of farm tasks such as clearing brush and digging holes, across the 220-acre property. Some days last until the late evenings as she takes business calls while on the go to meet with other farmers. But what keeps her up at night are the mounting bills and whether she can make the next payment. Other days she starts her mornings talking with an Internal Revenue Service officer because one of their farms, a 54-acre property, is facing seizure from the Internal Revenue Service and is up for sale. Last month, she was forced to sell eight calves and a cow to...
    More than a year after the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and other Black people forced a national reckoning with race, support for the movement has not waned in communities of color, a new Pew Research Center poll finds. When asked about the Black Lives Matter movement, 83 percent of Black Americans surveyed espoused some level of support, with 58 percent saying they “strongly” backed the cause. Overall support was slightly lower among Hispanic and Asian respondents — 60 percent and 68 percent, respectively — while only 47 percent of white respondents said they either “strongly” or “somewhat” supported the resurgent movement. In a Pew poll last June, two-thirds of all adults either somewhat or strongly supported Black Lives Matter. At the time, 60 percent of White respondents approved of the movement. That percentage dropped to 55 percent last September, though Pew’s latest version of the survey indicates the level of majority support has stayed steady since. While the calls for police reform haven’t gone away, Congress is at an impasse of the issue after negotiations between Rep....
    The big headline is that the California recall failed. Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom gets to keep his job. He handily fought off the Republican challenge. But there is a worrisome detail in the data, one that keeps showing up, one that Democrats would do well to deal with: Black and Latino men are not hewing as close to the party line as Black and Latina women. There are, of course, issues with exit polls, and results often change as more votes are counted. But that said, the California exit polls do seem to reflect what polls have shown for some time now. In CNN’s exit poll, nearly half of the Hispanic men surveyed and nearly a quarter of the Black men voted to support the recall. The largest difference between men and women of any racial group was between Black men and Black women. Even if these numbers are later adjusted, the warning must still be registered. For many of these men, saying Republicans are racist or attract racists or abide racists isn’t enough. For one thing, never underestimate the...
    The best way to save battery having a mobile with OLED technology on its panel is to have most of the screen in black, which will mean that the pixels will be off and thus improve autonomy. But we can still do more things that we will see below. The big difference between OLED screens and the rest of the panels, such as IPS, is that this type of technology allows the pixels to be turned off independently. That is, if we have an IPS panel, so that it achieves the black color, turn on the pixel and simulate said color. In OLED panels (and all its variants) those pixels remain off, so they do not waste battery, plus it is the best way to have that color on the screen. Therefore, when we have an OLED panel on our mobile it is very convenient that the theme we use, both the wallpaper, icons and menus, have the same higher black density possible, and thus save energy.

    Even as the nation rebounds from the coronavirus pandemic, more than 2 million homeowners are behind on their mortgages and risk being forced out of their homes in a matter of weeks, a new Harvard University housing report warns. Most of the homeowners at risk of foreclosure are either low-income or families of color, said researchers who published the 2021 State of the Nation's Housing report. Congress has dedicated $10 billion to help homeowners get caught up on payments, but it's unclear if that funding will make it to families before mortgage companies begin sending out foreclosure notices, researchers say. Separately, millions more renters are "on the brink of eviction," the Harvard researchers found. Census data show that 6 million households are still behind on rent and could face eviction at the end of June, when federal eviction protections expire.  The Center for Disease Control order halting some evictions, and federal liminations on foreclosures for federally-backed housing, both expire on June 30. Housing advocates have pushed for the Biden administration to extend both, but there is no indication an...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Her name is Donna Johnson. On May 4, she was sworn in as the first African American woman to be elected mayor in the history of Libertyville. CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot talked with her about her vision as the new president of the village she calls home. READ MORE: Glass Falls To Sidewalk On Ontario Street Near Magnificent Mile “It’s a wonderful feeling,” Johnson said. “It’s refreshing because we’re dealing with a community in terms of demographics that is not consistent with how I look.” Johnson was sworn in by outgoing Libertyville President Terry Weppler at the Libertyville Civic Center earlier this month. Johnson, who ran unopposed for the office, said her 14 years as a trustee gave her a vote of confidence from the community. She also said her appointment is a sign people are looking beyond skin color  when it comes to expertise. “To look at their character, their contributions, and, more importantly, from a cultural perspective recognize that we as women of color add tremendous value,” she said.

Chicago’s top elected leader is making a unique decision: Lori Lightfoot will grant media requests to the city’s press outlets marking her midway point as mayor, but she will exclusively interview with journalists of color.  Mayor Lightfoot made the announcement public in a five-part Twitter thread yesterday, writing, “I ran to break up the status quo that was failing so many. That isn’t just in City Hall. It’s a shame that in 2021, the City Hall press corps is overwhelmingly White in a city where more than half of the city identifies as Black, Latino, AAPI or Native American.”  Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who says she will exclusively interview with journalists of color to mark the two-year anniversary of her entering office, speaks during a press outside of Wrigley Field last month.

    With a CBS drama series in the works, three romance novels written by failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams — under the pen name Selena Montgomery — are returning to book stores. The Penguin Random House imprint, Berkley, plans to bring back Rules of Engagement, The Art of Desire, and Power of Persuasion by Selena Montgomery, Stacey Abrams’ pen name, to book stores next year, according to a report by New York Times. “As my first novels, they remain incredibly special to me,” Abrams said in a statement. “The characters and their adventures are what I’d wished to read as a young black woman — stories that showcase women of color as nuanced, determined, and exciting.” The news comes just months after CBS said it’s developing a drama series based on one of Abrams’ romance novels. The romance novels were first published in the early 2000s, and have long been out of print, the report adds. In 2019, Abrams told The Late Show host Stephen Colbert that she wrote her novels under a pseudonym because her editors were concerned that romance readers would googled her name...
    Civil Rights Attorney Leo Terrell told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday that LeBron James will not meet with the Black cop who requested a meeting to discuss policing because it would "destroy" the NBA star's narrative. LOS ANGELES POLICE OFFICER PENS LETTER TO LEBRON JAMES REQUESTING SITDOWN TO TALK ABOUT POLICING LEO TERRELL: You see, there is a strategy on the left, the extreme left: white officers kill black people. That person who wrote that letter is a black officer. LeBron is not going to sit there because it destroys their narrative... that Black police officer destroys LeBron, the socialists', the extreme left's narrative. He'll never sit down with that guy because of skin color. And that's how ridiculous it is. ... ...LeBron has consumed too much Democratic Kool-Aid. They want a race war in the sense that law enforcement is evil, even though law enforcement is the only defense for people of color and for all people.  CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEWThis article was written by Fox News staff.
    This story was originally published at Prism.  A single cop has been held accountable, but the lethally unjust system of policing that enabled George Floyd’s murder grinds on undeterred. Barely an hour after the Hennepin County, Minnesota, jury read out the guilty verdict against Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, news came that police in Columbus, Ohio, had snuffed out yet another Black life, fatally shooting 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Even as white liberals like Nancy Pelosi and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey busied themselves shoehorning the Chauvin verdict into America’s hackneyed post-racism redemption story, Bryant’s needless death—along with that of Adam Toledo, Daunte Wright, and countless others before her—put the lie to any notion that Floyd’s unwilling “sacrifice” had bought any measure of real justice or peace. As long as American policing endures in its current form, the movement to save Black lives continues. After the verdict was read in Minneapolis, the Minnesota Statesman-Recorder reported: “One activist, saying that the work is far from over, entreated the crowd to chant ‘Reopen All the Cases’ and invited them to join families who have lost loved ones to police violence in Washington,...
    Jaime Peñafiel has defended the English monarchy and has called Meghan Markle “riffraff” and “unbalanced” for his last public interview. The journalist intervened this Tuesday in Four a day to deal with the crisis in the British Royal House after the intervention of Meghan and Harry and was shown tremendously critical of the couple. Regarding the possibility of taking her own life, as she herself stated in the interview last Sunday, the journalist pointed out that these statements were typical of an “unbalanced” person. “They wanted to resurrect mom, Lady Diana, who was also unbalanced” “They wanted to resurrect mom, Lady Diana, who was also unbalanced. What Harry wanted to do is resurrect mom, giving the same interview, talking about suicide and setting up a circus against an institution that deserves respect, “said Peñafiel, referring to the late Diana of Wales. “Meghan’s grandmother was completely black” The Dukes of Sussex confessed that the Windsor House itself had serious prejudices “about the color of the skin” that their son, Archie, was going to have, some “doubts” that Peñafiel sees...
    Oprah Winfrey interviewing Meghan Markle. Harpo Productions/Joe Pugliese via Getty Images The biggest moment in Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah was talking about racism in the royal family. An MP, a charity director, and an activist told Insider how this might affect Britons of color more widely. Despite her royal status, Markle's experiences resonate, they said. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah Winfrey gave an unsparing view which challenged many British people's idea of their royal family.  The couple alleged that the approaching birth of their first child was tainted by racism, saying that an unnamed royal voiced "concerns" that Meghan's son might have dark skin. Buckingham Palace on Tuesdaycalled the allegation "concerning" and said it "will be addressed by the family privately." Binta Barr, an 18-year-old Londoner, told Reuters that the reported discussion about Archie's skin color "was really hurtful to a lot of people to be honest, especially because I'm Black as well." She said that impact of that idea will upset her for a...

    (CNN)Justice Horn was in broad daylight, but he could not see as he rose from the ground and blindly stumbled through darkness and pain.The pain was the fire the community activist felt in his face and eyes in June 2020, as he had just been pepper-sprayed by a Kansas City police officer while peacefully protesting the death of George Floyd. "I've never felt any pain like that before," Horn said. "Just to be standing there with no weapons — I don't own a gun — but with a sign and just to turn and get Maced." At the protest, attendees chanted and held signs. They were standing on the sidewalks, not antagonizing the police, when hundreds of protesters were pepper-sprayed, pushed down, shoved into cop cars or shot with rubber bullets, he said. A fellow activist called an Uber for Horn, who "remained blind for the rest of the day" and went to bed because he couldn't see anything. "You hear stories and have family that have run-ins with law enforcement, but it's another thing when you have personal experience,"...

One would think that the issues the world has always had with Black hair would have ended during the ‘Black is Beautiful’ movement of the sixties when Black women threw away their straightening combs and boldly declared that their hair was beautiful in its natural state. While many were offended by Black women flaunting their ‘nappy’ hair, the Afro became a symbol of racial pride.

    Ten years after the adoption of the 1990 International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families, the UN General Assembly recognized Dec. 18 as International Migrants Day. Migrants across the globe are often made up of vulnerable populations facing obstacles in both their home country and the one they immigrate to. This year alone the United Nations identified about 272 million people as migrants, a large increase over previous years despite the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the United Nations, this increase in numbers is a result of a variety of factors including trade, rising inequalities, demographic imbalances, climate change, and conflict. The U.S. itself has one of the largest number of migrants worldwide––approximately 50.7 million people, or 15% of the population. Research has found that these migrant populations are the “most vulnerable to economic shocks like lockdowns and COVID-19 infections given their economic precarity and lack of adequate shelter and access to appropriate protective gear and health care.” While migrants are not limited to a specific identity—including religion, gender, sexual orientation,...

    An exchange between Black Lives Matter supporters and a gun-toting Louisville store owner captured the tension in the Kentucky city as protests continued for the third day since a grand jury decided not to charge any police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor. In the video, a group of protesters gathers around the man, pressing him to voice support their cause, but he refuses to do so. “Does Black Lives Matter?” a young Black man asks the man, identified as business owner Fadi Faouri by Daily Caller reporter Jorge Ventura, who posted the original clip. A woman off-screen can be heard shouting, “Does Breonna Taylor matter?” and repeating the question several times. “Does it matter? I don’t know,” Faouri initially responds. As the exchange continues, a number of other protesters gather around Faouri, who says he is just there to protect his business. Police say protesters have broken windows of businesses and damaged city buses during the continued demonstrations. “We don’t want your business,” the first protester responds, asking him again if black lives matter. “Nobody can intimidate me,”...
    Chrissy Teigen recalled the moment her starry status couldn’t protect her and husband John Legend from experiencing racism. “We were in a nicer neighborhood at night, driving slowly, looking for John’s godmother’s home. These two guys were in a pickup truck slowly tailing us, flashing their lights and trying to speak to us,” Teigen, 34, recently told Marie Claire. “When we pulled over, they were like, ‘What are you guys looking for?’ and we gave them the address. “They literally said, ‘Get your asses out of here!’ and proceeded to follow us all the way into her driveway. They got out of the car and stared at us as we knocked on the door and went inside. It was a terrible, scary experience.” She continued through tears, “That was my first taste of seeing what happens to Black men everyday. It was horrifying and could have gone wrong so quickly.” The “Cravings” author noted that while she was shaken from the whole thing, Legend, 41, was unfazed. “I was sobbing afterward for hours, and I noticed John wasn’t emotional about...

    SAN ANTONIO – Weathered Souls Brewery co-founder and owner Marcus Baskerville knows what it's like to be racially profiled. “I’ve had experiences where I've been riding through a neighborhood and been pulled over because I don't look like I belong there,” said Baskerville. In a recent interview with KSAT, he recalled an experience when he was younger and racially profiled after he helped someone who had been stabbed at a party by taking him to a hospital.

We legitimately saved this man’s life. It’s real. People that don’t have to experience that every day, they’ll never understand.”(Image provided by Marcus Baskerville.) Baskerville is not surprised George Floyd's killing has sparked a national movement. He believes this type of change is long overdue. “People...
    (CNN)Shirley Freeman has been seeing therapists on and off for about six years, but not a single one has been Black.Her inability to find a mental health professional who shares her race and cultural background has made it difficult to heal from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and severe depression, Freeman, 30, told CNN. "What that translates to is that many of the cultural issues that I have to deal with aren't properly addressed because the therapist has no way to relate to my experiences on any level," she said. Suicide attempts by black teens are increasing, study saysLike others in her community, she's eagerly awaiting the release of Ayana, an app dedicated to matching people of color with therapists of the same background -- including race, ethnicity, gender, religion and sexual orientation.The app, scheduled to launch in August, was founded by Senegalese-American techie Eric Coly.Read MoreHe says it grew from his attempt to help a friend find a therapist who could understand her culture.

    A black college student charged with shooting dead a 17-year-old white girl says he fired in self-defense but his lawyers argue Georgia's 'stand your ground' law isn't been applied in his case because of his race.  Marc Wilson, 21, has been jailed since mid-June on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault over the June 14 shooting death of Haley Hutcheson in Statesboro in southeast Georgia. Wilson has argued he fired his licensed handgun in self-defense after Hutcheson and her friends in a pickup truck yelled racial slurs and tried to run him and his white girlfriend off the road.  Hutcheson was struck in the head by a bullet and died hours later in hospital.   The defense team representing Wilson, who is the son of a black father and white mother, say the college student is being treated differently because of his skin color.   They fear that Georgia's self-defense laws, which allow people to use deadly force when facing grave and imminent threats, are not being applied because of Wilson's race.  Marc Wilson, 21, has been jailed since mid-June on charges...
    stefanamer/Getty Images Ayana is an app that helps people from marginalized communities find a therapist they can identify with. It was started by investment banker Eric Coly after urging a friend of his to see a therapist, and witnessing how difficult it was for her to find one who could understand her experience as a woman of color. In the US, 86% of therapists are white, 5% are Asian, 5% are Hispanic, and 4% are Black. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Eric Coly spent 15 years coping with issues related to anxiety and depression, but race was not an issue that came up in the therapist's chair until he came to the United States. In the US, Coly, who is 42 years old and Senegalese, watched his Black American friends struggle to find therapists who looked like them and could understand their cultural backgrounds. "Because I'm not a Black American, I didn't have to walk into a room with a counselor and address the issue of race, as much as I would have had I been...

    Melanie McFarland July 2, 2020 9:00PM (UTC) "There is a story lost to the mists of time of The Sword of Power and the young woman who wielded it. They called her a demon, Sorceress, Savior. Before Arthur the King, the Sword of Power chose a Queen." Her name is Nimue, and she is the center of Netflix's upcoming series "Cursed." Nimue is fair of skin and long of hair and played by the rosy cheeked actor from "13 Reasons Why," Katherine Langford. If this intro has an echo of familiarity, that is because more than 20 years ago we learned that "into every generation a Slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one." We were told that "she alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number." Here, the "chosen one" is "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," a preternaturally strong, slender blonde forever associated with Sarah Michelle Gellar. : Two years before "Buffy," television...

Image: Fox The animation industry is currently going through a small reckoning as it finally, finally, really, finally seems to realize that its characters of color could be voiced by actors of color just as easily as white ones. According to Entertainment Weekly, The Simpsons is the latest animated show to make the change. Earlier this year, Hank Azaria finally stepped away from his role as the Indian character Apu after much criticism, and now the show will recast the entirety of its Black cast as well, including Carl Carlson, Lou, and Dr. Hibbert. In a statement, producers of the show didn’t do much to elaborate on anything, just saying, “Moving forward, The Simpsons will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters.” Fair enough. Family Guy is also doing some recasting, with actor Mike Henry stepping away from the role of Cleveland Brown. “I love this character, but persons of color should play characters of color,” he wrote on Twitter. “Therefore,...
