Writer doesn’t see impact of racial bias

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I’m glad that he recognized that the African-Americans have been treated poorly in this country. However, I was dismayed by his obvious lack of understanding of the continually adverse effect of the system of government-sanctioned racial oppression and segregation in the United States. I hope that Mr. Mangino understands that the current person who occupies the White House is taking the country back to a time when racism was the norm.I won’t minimize the progress that African-Americans have made in the United States. Yet, we have to recognize that institutional racism and biases still exist and prevent the level of economic growth and social acceptance that is easily attained by privileged races.This letter in the opinion doesn’t provide enough space to fully explain why Mr. Mangino’s final statement that African-Americans need to start solving their own problems and cleaning up their own house is an uneducated view of the prejudices that are embedded in this culture.Mr. Mangino, maybe it is time for you to examine your own biases and find ways to educate yourself about the reasons why it’s hard to clean up a house that is being constantly flooded with injustices and inequalities that you have been privileged to escape.Maxine BrisportRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to onlineEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Re Oct. 7 letter, “U.S. done much for African-Americans”: I generally refrain from making broad assumptions about the author of letters in the opinion page. However, I have to assume that Robert Mangino grew up during the time of Jim Crow or another period in this nation’s history where racism and segregation was the norm. This has skewed his view of African-Americans.last_img read more

PREMIUMBeauty and success: How industries favor good looks

first_img“When I wore flats instead of heels, it got reported in the news. My pearls, my belts, my cardigans, my off-the-rack dresses from J. Crew, my apparently brave choice of white for an inaugural gown — all seemed to trigger a slew of opinions and instant feedback […] It seemed that my clothes mattered more to people than anything I had to say,” Michelle Obama wrote in her book, Becoming, addressing that her looks had been the subject of people’s scrutiny while Barack Obama could easily “pull the same dark suit out of his closet and head off to work without even needing a comb”. An extent of that double standard is something common faced by women when they enter the workforce. Women had to come to terms with a reality where their looks are as important, if not more, as their competence. Riska, not her real name, a young professional who… Log in with your social account Topics : LOG INDon’t have an account?
