Tired of Waiting

US politicians are slowly shifting their positions on Israel, Breonna Taylor's killers have still not seen the full depth of accountability as we'd like, and the people suffering in Sudan are only now starting to get the world's attention. How much longer do we have to wait for the people who know better to do better?

What the Health

COVID-19 brought attention to the racial disparities that existed for the Black community within the healthcare system. 4 years later, efforts to address those disparities are further complicated by abortion bans, AI, and anti-DEI efforts.

Depression in teenage boys often goes undetected. Irritability and aggression are among the signs to look out for.

March is National Kidney Month. Did you know that our community is 4 times more likely to develop kidney failure? Let’s see how we can do better to protect the health of our kidneys.

Keeping Up with Biden & Harris

The Biden Administration has imposed sanctions against more Jewish settlers in the West Bank for violence against Palestinians. It’s really a shame that it took tens of thousands of Palestinian lives for a call like this to be made.

The POTUS has also announced a $120M investment in helping indigenous communities withstand climate change.

 Kamala Harris says it’s ‘bout time we decriminalize marijuana

Congress, What’s Good

Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Leader and Congress’ highest ranking Jewish official, did a 180 and expressed concerns about Benjamin Netanyahu’s ability to deliver a 2-state solution. We never thought we’d see the day, considering how much the Senator has stuck beside Israel in the past. Surely losing a top ally in the US is a sting. It’ll be interesting to see how US-Israel relations play out from here. 

If it’s one thing Bernie Sanders gone do, he’s going to bring attention to an issue, even if it’s not going to pass. The Vermont Senator recently introduced legislation to adopt a 4-day work week. Despite knowing it’d never go anywhere, Bernie used the issue to highlight corporate accountability.

Looking to 2024

Not to suggest upcoming primaries don’t matter anymore, but Trump and Biden have both clinched the nomination for their respective parties. Here’s how this year’s rematch will be different from 2020.

As Democrats aim to make reproductive rights a big issue in the election, Kamala Harris’ recent visit to a Planned Parenthood facility makes the first time a sitting president or VP has ever done so.

Meet the veteran running for Congress because he felt the government’s efforts to find his missing son were subpar. He believes more should be done to solve missing persons cases and wants to help families who find themselves in the same boat that he’s in.

A judge ruled Fulton County DA Fani Willis can stay on the RICO case she built against Trump, even after being outed for having an inappropriate relationship with a special prosecutor. Does that mean all of her problems are gone, though? 

Social Justice Round Up

A recent court decision determined employers cannot punish employees for rocking BLM merchandise while on the clock.

LOL. “Research” suggests “woke people” are more likely to be depressed, stressed, and anxious. Stay sleep, yall!

It’s been 4 years since Breonna Taylor was murdered by Louisville police. The efforts to hold someone accountable for her death are still ongoing.

Around the Diaspora

Let’s be clear. What’s happening in Haiti is unfortunate, but it did not happen in a vacuum. If you’re still unclear of the root causes of this chaos, you need to look back hundreds of years and point the finger at the West.

The Caribbean as a whole has reduced its use of tobacco products, dropping by as much as 12% over a 20-year span.

When will the world’s diplomats give Sudan their full attention?
