Inequality and Discrimination in Los Angeles County’s Department of Public Health
August 10, 2016
Recently, it was brought to my attention that two communities facing similar environmental stressors were treated very differently by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH). In Maywood, the Southeast community suffered as a toxic magnesium explosion terrorized the neighborhood. In Porter Ranch, the suburban community was afflicted by a gas leak. Though both regions were exposed to extreme environmental hazards, the DPH gave significantly more attention to the latter community, creating a large disparity between the assistance each community was provided. ... read more »

Driving Under Oppression – A Look At Racism Through The Eyes Of A 17 Yr. Old Educated Black Man
July 28, 2016
My only question is why? What is it about us that so many people fear? What is it about Alton Sterling that placed the officer in so much timidity that he had to shoot him repeatedly? What was it about the hard working and innocent cafeteria manager Philando Castile that provoked unnecessary violence from the officer who pulled him over? In a blog published by the Huffington Post, Dr. Joy Degruy, author of the book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing, is interviewed. During this interview she states that "Black people are 'profoundly resilient' but the fact is, they have been traumatized... and white people are afraid. The biggest trauma whites suffer from black people... is a fear of black people." The author of the blog continues by paraphrasing Degruy's words when she says that "The holding onto the secret of the horror of white racism has taken its toll on white people and has caused them to live in fear. So, at the end of the day, white supremacy has traumatized both black and white people. Black people are afraid of a government which has not and will not protect them; white people are afraid that perhaps their injustice, or complicity in the dispensation of injustice, will come back to haunt them." ... read more »
