You know, I think that framing this guy who killed 8 people into a racist thing is missing the point. It's also diluting the message of racism by applying it too liberally, in circumstances where it doesn't belong.

Not all of the victims were Asian, so it's a little illogical to say he was specifically targeting them because of their race. In fact, he says it wasn't because of their race. ("but we shouldn't listen to his narrative!")

Instead, he targeted sex workers who were predominantly - in this setting - Asian women. So he's a violent loon who thought he should kill these people for whatever reason. But it wasn't an anti-Asian rampage at all.

So to keep the message of Asian racism attacks coherent, because they've been a huge problem in the CA Bay Area, they need to not fold this mass murder into that narrative.

This is very short but there is so much importance packed in its brevity regarding the big picture of actually having positive solutions and outcomes to problems as opposed to just venting or worse being mislead by those who profit off of misery:

Pandemic’s Racial Disparities Persist in Vaccine Rollout
Communities of color, which have borne the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States, have also received a smaller share of available vaccines. The vaccination rate for Black Americans is half that of white people, and the gap for Hispanic people is even larger, according to a New York Times analysis of state-reported race and ethnicity information.

That's probably because I don't have one.  My meaning was that he is an ordinary person who does not articulate in a scholarly fashion more so uses everyday language. But you obviously would know that if you paid attention to many of the....gasp......scholars and intellectuals that I admire and post regularly.

Sad.  

In the period where climate change started to infiltrate the popular consciousness, a few analysts argued in favour of a No-Regret climate change policy.    The policy recognized the uncertainty around the full impact of climate change and the strong correlation between climate emissions and emissions that hurt, sicken and kill people.

Health-damaging and deadly small particulate matter emissions (PM<2.5) are highly correlated with climate emissions.  Reduce one, you reduce the other.

Lots and lots and lots of lower-income non-white folk live in urban areas and air sheds that host lots of health-damaging emissions.  A number of them live in flood plains and vulnerable coastal zones.  As a general rule, health outcomes are worse than those of white folks making non-white folks more vulnerable to air pollution.

Frankly, I am not too impressed with Karin Louise Hermes.   Seems to me that she does not have very sophisticated understanding of air pollution and anthropogenic climate disruption.  The fact that she is a woman and non-white are pathetic excuses.  

Broad social movements like the climate change movement typically demonstrate fewer barriers to entry (based on identity) than just about any other activity you could think of.    They tend to be cosmopolitan and multi-national.  If there is a sphere in which entrepreneurial initiative can come to fruit quickly, it is the modern technology-driven social movements.
