Harris shattered a glass ceiling, but she’ll still be held to a higher standard

Harris shattered a glass ceiling, but she’ll still be held to a higher standard

first_imgTOP COMMENTSQUOTATION“There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.”          ~~Franklin D Roosevelt, June 27, 1936TWEET OF THE DAY BLAST FROM THE PAST- Advertisement – At Daily Kos on this date in 2008—Republican “Permanent Majority” Lasts Less Than One Presidency:A few years ago, Republican strategists were crowing about a new “permanent Republican majority”. As of last night, Republicans are a regional party with a narrowly defined ideology and abysmal support among the next generations of voters.And all it took was, you know, Republicans sucking on every conceivable level, dragging the nation into botched war efforts, corruption in the Department of Justice, and the possible collapse of our entire financial system.So… yay us, I guess. When Barack Obama was in the White House, many on both the left and the right cited the first Black president as proof that the nation had progressed significantly on racial issues. But that notion was washed away by the election of Trump, which showed that Obama’s presidency had been an aberration, not evidence of an inclusive new norm.Likewise, commentators will be tempted to Obama-ize Harris and characterize her vice presidency as evidence that women of color have arrived in a new position of power. While the political muscle of Black women is a real thing, Harris’s victory doesn’t erase the hurdles that Black women face on a regular basis.No one should forget how much sexism and racism—the combination known as misogynoir—Harris has confronted, or the unrelenting misinformation campaigns waged against her on her path to the vice presidency. No one should forget that even though the Biden-Harris pairing was ultimately victorious, millions of people voted for a president who gleefully belittled and insulted not only Harris but other high-profile women of color. No one should forget that because of ingrained stereotypes about Black women, Harris will have to tread more carefully than Biden did in the nation’s second-highest office.

Local Judge Stops Sale of Bleach Marketed as COVID-19 Treatment

Local Judge Stops Sale of Bleach Marketed as COVID-19 Treatment

first_imgA federal judge in South Florida last week ordered a Colombia-based church to stop selling an industrial bleach that it was marketing as a treatment for the novel coronavirus and other illnesses.Judge Kathleen Williams entered a temporary injunction on Friday which stops Genesis II Church of Health and Healing’s continued sale of Miracle Mineral Solution in the United States.Genesis sells MMS through its websites, according to a U.S. Justice Department civil complaint that was filed last Thursday in the Southern District of Florida.According to prosecutors, Genesis markets the solution as a treatment for COVID-19 in addition to Alzheimer’s disease, autism, brain cancer, HIV/AIDS and multiple sclerosis.The Food and Drug Administration has previously issued public warnings that MMS can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and severe dehydration.The chemical product, chlorine dioxide, becomes a powerful bleach when it is combined with the included activator, officials explain.“We will zealously pursue perpetrators of fraud schemes seeking to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic,” U.S. Attorney Ariana Fajardo Orshan said in a statement.The complaint adds that disease-related treatment claims for MMS are unsupported by any well-controlled clinical studies or other credible scientific substantiation.last_img read more
