Monuments to Black lives have no value without justice and meaningful change 

 

It seems like performative activism is here to stay. America seems just fine with white people, corporations and other organizations simply saying "Black Lives Matter" and doing nothing more. In fact, in the months since I first said I was tired of performative bullshit, it's gotten worse. The COVID-19 pandemic is still raging, even though Americans have decided it's over. Jared Kushner thinks that Black people need to want to be successful to survive – and the presidential election has shown us that America's inherent racism is alive and well. We have a white supremacist majority in the Supreme Court that threatens to dismantle what's left of democracy, and a new justice with a highly-questionable résumé that a Black woman would be sent home immediately for even producing. And the response? Though it was nice to have people from all walks of life join us at protests, white folks still appear to be marching themselves into the abyss months later.

A few of us thought this moment might be different because we were hanging onto a thread of hope that white people might actually get themselves together and make real change. But alas, here we are … I'm still tired.

Leaders of a Jehovah's Witnesses church 'made a 15-year-old girl listen to an audio tape of her own rape for four hours to for her to say it was "consensual"', Utah Supreme Court hears 

 

A 15-year-old girl was allegedly forced to listen to a recording of a man raping her for four hours, by male leaders of a Jehovah’s Witnesses congregation to get her to say the encounter was consensual, the Utah Supreme Court heard this week.

The court heard arguments on Monday in a lawsuit where a woman sued four elders of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Roy, Utah, the religion’s national organization and the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society for intentionally inflicting severe emotional distress upon her.

The woman claims she was 14-years-old when an 18-year-old male, who was also a Jehovah’s Witness, bullied her and began to sexually assault her in December 2007.

Texas Social Workers Can Now Refuse Services to LGBTQ+ Clients 

 

Social workers in Texas can now refuse service to LGBTQ+ clients and clients with disabilities.

In an unanimous Monday vote, the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners changed its code of conduct to allow discrimination based on gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability.

The vote struck down protections that had already been in place. The board banned discrimination based on sexual orientation in 2010 and gender identity and expression in 2012.

The move had been recommended by the office of Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, as the code’s former nondiscrimination protections went above and beyond those offered by state law, which oversees the disciplining of social workers. The governor’s staff had urged the changes in an email last Friday, which sparked the vote just three days afterward.

The move sparked a swift condemnation. In a Q&A about the rule change — held only after the vote had taken place, Austin-based social worker Tracy Abzug slammed it, reports The Texas Tribune.

Hotel must train staff to be nicer to homophobes after being threatened with hefty ‘free speech’ lawsuit 

 

A Belfast hotel that terminated a conference being held to oppose same-sex marriage has promised to retrain its staff after being threatened with a ‘free speech’ lawsuit.

Following complaints from other guests, 50 members of the anti-LGBT+ Coalition for Marriage were unceremoniously turfed out of the the Balmoral Hotel halfway through their “Marriage Matters” event.

In retaliation, the “humiliated” reverend Harry Coulter launched a hefty lawsuit to “defend his freedom to hold and express” his anti-gay beliefs, forcing the hotel to issue a grovelling apology as part of a settlement.

To avoid a repeat of the incident the hotel also vowed to retrain its staff, ironically, to “respect human rights”.

Older LGBTQ workers face special jeopardy from widespread workplace ageism 

 

Last June’s surprising Supreme Court decision granting LGBTQ employees protection under federal law would seem to put an end to workplace discrimination. But if you’re 50 or older, you may still experience an equally invidious form of discrimination: ageism.

According to a 2018 AARP survey, about three in five workers have experienced age discrimination in their jobs. A whopping 76 percent worried that ageism would hurt their job hunting. That fear is well-grounded. An analysis of employment data by the Urban Institute and ProPublica found that half of older workers were pushed out of jobs and 90 percent of them ended up taking a pay cut when they were finally rehired.

Being an older LGBTQ worker can make things even worse. Out LGBTQ workers have already had to deal with much higher levels of job discrimination and wage disparities. Now, despite the promise of job protections for being LGBTQ, they are finding that the pervasive problem of ageism serves as yet another threat to their careers and financial security.

Worsening the problem is the internalized ageism that many older LGBTQ people carry. A 2015 study of 312 gay men with an average age of 61 found that many felt aging was harder due to the perception that gay men primarily value younger men. No doubt, some of that carries over into the workplace as well.

Student whistleblowers expose the ‘violent’ homophobia, racism and sexual harassment plaguing schools day in, day out 

 

Submitting their stories anonymously via three Instagram accounts – dedicated to exposing anti-LGBT+ hate, racism and misogyny respectively – students have painted a damning picture of what it’s like to be a minority in the Iowa City community school district.

Black students reported being shown images of lynchings, hearing the N-word and having to endure classmates using Blackface. Multiple girls reported being sexualised, sexually harassed and even raped.

The 'war on women' didn't stop when South Africa locked down over Covid-19 

 

Khayelitsha, South Africa (CNN) The shack sits just down a narrow dirt alleyway, visible from a main road in Khayelitsha, near Cape Town. This is where the suspected killer is alleged to have hidden the body of his girlfriend, packed in between a corrugated iron siding and a concrete wall, just feet away from where he lived.

Prosecutors say he put 36-year-old Sibongiseni Gabada's corpse in a bag and covered it with garbage.

Gabada was missing for two weeks before her body was found. Every day people would walk past, until finally the smell of decomposing remains became stronger than the stench of the trash piled on top.

"When the people asked what is going on there. He said, 'No, it is rubbish, I am going to throw it away.' That is the kind of person he was -- an animal," says Gabada's grandmother, Mavis Gabada.

She gingerly moves forward to stare at the spot, sobbing. "Why was my granddaughter killed like a dog?" she asks.

Lawmaker Introduces ‘CAREN’ Act to Outlaw False Racially-Motivated 911 Calls 

 

A San Francisco supervisor has introduced legislation that would outlaw racially-motivated 911 calls such as those made by various “Karens” around the country.

The legislation is appropriately named: The CAREN Act, which stands for Caution Against Racially Exploitative Non-Emergencies. The bill would charge people who make false racially-biased emergency calls such as the one made by skincare CEO Lisa Alexander (seen above) in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood in early June.

Black Women Are Getting Left Behind In The Black Lives Matter Movement 

 

The #SayHerName campaign was created by the African American Policy Forum in December 2015. This movement was created to uplift the voices of Black women who have become victims of police brutality, established in an attempt to rectify the lack of coverage Black women received in comparison to men. Recent headlines make it more apparent than ever that this is still an ongoing problem. We are standing by as Black women fight for visibility, allowing the media to let another Black woman slip under the radar.

It’s important we adjust our allyship quickly, as Breonna Taylor is not the only woman who needs our action. Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin Salau was just 19 years old, found dead in Tallahassee, Florida at the hands of Aaron Glee Jr. In the same week, we lost two Black trans women: Dominique Fells and Riah Milton. These and other Black women are not pawns for you to use for social activism points. None of these women have been fought for with enough fire and passion. Black women are not getting the attention they deserve.

Everlane clothing brand is accused of racism by former employees 

 

A group of former employees that worked at the sustainable clothing retail brand Everlane is calling for people to boycott the company in the wake of their experiences of racism in the workplace.

The group has taken to social media, calling themselves the "Everlane Ex-Wives Club" and shared a lengthy Google document titled “Everlane’s Convenient Transparency” — aptly named after the company’s own promise of “radical transparency" — outlining numerous displays of racism or micro-aggressions. According to the document, the group is made up of former Black, POC, and white allied employees.

One of the sections detailed a Black woman's experience in which she wrote the chief creative officer, Alexandra Spunt, would plunge her hands into the woman’s hair “pulling at my roots and referring to us being ‘soul sisters.'" Still more shared stories of their creative ideas being stolen by their white colleagues.

Black Exotic Dancers Demand Better Treatment With ‘Stripper Strike’ 

 

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic, when strip clubs across the country were shuttering and dancers found themselves abruptly out of work, the Portland, Oregon strip club the Lucky Devil Lounge started a food-delivery service called Boober Eats in order to provide some of its employees work. The concept went viral (and was, in fact, covered by this publication), but local black dancers noticed something odd: its Instagram featured relatively few black dancers.

This wasn’t surprising to some black dancers in Portland, like Cat Hollis and Brianna Cistrunk, who say the club has a reputation for almost exclusively hiring white dancers. “They say they’re a ‘rock ‘n roll club’ [which means] they only hire a certain aesthetic,” Cistrunk says. “It’s an unspoken thing but it’s very well-known among most girls.” This perception was magnified a few weeks later, following the death of George Floyd, when the club posted a (now-deleted) photo on Instagram of #BlackLivesMatter flags festooning the stage. “There was a huge argument that happened in the comments,” says Hollis. She commented: “There are more #BlackLivesMatter signs than there have ever been black butts on that stage.” (Shon Boulden, owner of the Lucky Devil Lounge, tells Rolling Stone the controversy stemmed from “a lot of misconceptions of how our club operates,” though he acknowledged that only two or three of the club’s 30 dancers are black.”If there ever was the idea that we weren’t open to hiring all ethnicities, I guess I’d just want say, yes of course we do,” he says. “In our hiring, maybe it didn’t look like we were.”)

‘They Just Dumped Him Like Trash’: Nursing Homes Evict Vulnerable Residents 

 

On a chilly afternoon in April, Los Angeles police found an old, disoriented man crumpled on a Koreatown sidewalk.

Several days earlier, RC Kendrick, an 88-year-old with dementia, was living at Lakeview Terrace, a nursing home with a history of regulatory problems. His family had placed him there to make sure he got round-the-clock care after his condition deteriorated and he began disappearing for days at a time.

But on April 6, the nursing home deposited Mr. Kendrick at an unregulated boardinghouse — without bothering to inform his family. Less than 24 hours later, Mr. Kendrick was wandering the city alone.

According to three Lakeview employees, Mr. Kendrick’s ouster came as the nursing home was telling staff members to try to clear out less-profitable residents to make room for a new class of customers who would generate more revenue: patients with Covid-19.

Clive Myrie details racist abuse he receives as BBC News presenter 

 

The BBC News presenter Clive Myrie says the racist abuse he regularly receives has become increasingly virulent and prevalent in recent years and is at its worst since he started his career in 1988.

A far-right extremist who threatened to kill him was jailed last year. Myrie said the UK must not be complacent over racism in society, and that the groundswell of anti-racism protests demonstrated the widespread desire for systemic change.

“The most recent thing I got two weeks ago was quite succinct: ‘Fuck off you black cunt,’” he said.

“It actually doesn’t really bother me at all. What bothers me is the general sense that we live in a country where some people think racism is either imagined, or in people’s minds, and I think that is a notion that has to be fought.

“We’ve got problems in our own house that we need to sort out. There are a few too many people running around saying that we’re fine here, we’re not like America.”

Religious exemptions are gutting civil rights protections, advocacy groups warn 

 

The Trump administration's expansion of religious exemptions is undermining civil rights protections and codifying discrimination against marginalized groups — particularly LGBTQ people — according to a report released Monday by three research and advocacy groups.

Using a combination of new rules, legal interventions and newly created divisions, the departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor and State have all taken steps to advance "religious liberty," often at the expense of LGBTQ rights, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for American Progress and the Movement Advancement Project argue in their report.

The proposed rules — from the departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, Labor, Housing and Urban Development, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, Agriculture and Education, along with the U.S. Agency for International Development — would undo several Obama-era regulations, including those that require federally funded religious organizations to inform beneficiaries about certain rights.

For example, if a homeless LGBTQ teen sought help from a faith-based provider and the provider was not accepting of the teen's sexual orientation or gender identity, the provider would no longer have to inform the teen under the new rule about alternative providers that may be more accepting.

"These rules would be harmful to LGBTQ people, women, religious minorities and others during the best of times, but they're particularly unconscionable during a public health crisis when even more people than usual are relying on social services," said Rachel Laser, president of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, which was not involved with Monday's report.

Mum who ‘isn’t homophobic’ but scared her son’s HIV-positive boyfriend could ‘accidentally’ pass it to their children gets a blunt science lesson 

 

The woman said she was recently introduced to Stephen’s new boyfriend Adam on a Zoom call, and was shocked when she learned that he is living with HIV.

“My son announced this on the Zoom call (I didn’t have time to process it), and then became irate when I asked some questions to better understand what that means,” she wrote.

“I remember the ’80s, and actually had a close friend die from AIDS,” she continued.

“My son claims I’m being ignorant, but I was alive during that time – he wasn’t!”

I’m not homophobic. I just need some processing time.

Bizarrely, the woman then went on to claim that she is “scared of what will happen if they stay together and have children.”
