    “The latest class of White House interns is a reminder that diversity in government isn’t an issue only at senior levels; it starts at the bottom.

    The White House released a photo of its spring 2018 interns — and the Internet quickly noted a lack of people of colour.”

        Sadiq Khan is the Mayor of London. Not only is Stoke-on-Trent is several hundred miles north, I’m quite doubtful that Khan has ever been there.

        “laughable…as if Sadiq is in someway …responsible.”

        Just to add, yes, Khan as Mayor is responsible;

        https://www.police.uk/metropolitan/pcc/#team

        The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is responsible for setting policing and crime priorities for London and will hold the Met Police Commissioner to account and work with partners to ensure that crimes goes down and criminal justice outcomes are improved

    Majority Of Migrants ‘Unemployable’ And Just 54 Have Jobs With Top Firms

    The German briefing notes were honest about some reasons for the change of heart.

    An ageing German population (second only to that of Japan) means that the country is increasingly desperate for sourcing a new and younger population.

    Meanwhile in America the opioid epidemic is getting more serious
    Preliminary data for 2016 reveals the death toll from drug overdoses may be as high as 65,000,8 a 19 percent increase from 2015; the largest annual increase of drug overdose deaths in U.S. history, and a number that exceeds both the AIDS epidemic at its peak and the death toll of the Vietnam War in its entirety.

    That much-opposed war claimed the lives of 58,000 American troops. Now, suffering a death toll exceeding that of the Vietnam War each and every year, courtesy of a drug addiction epidemic created by the pharmaceutical industry.

    Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under the age of 50

    We will always try to speak from within the cause and as part of the movement, For these reasons we don’t propose to be objective when discussing Black issues.
