US Civil Rights Commission: Racism in Rez Border Towns

The press release is here.

    I noticed no women are scheduled to speak. I’m sure racism in border towns doesn’t just affect men.

    That’s a very astute observation. As I noted in the original entry, I’m suspicious of this version of the Civil Rights Commission. I won’t say that it’s an intentional thing (excluding women) but it’s seems very possible that the particular direction of this panel is not well thought out. Such an oversight should be obvious to a commission seriously concerned about civil rights.
