Daniels Nipa columnist question when men and a few women belonging to gangs known to Law enforcement agencies for criminal behaviour explode in a rampage using guns knives clubs and chains in trying to kill each other and police officers too that leaves nine dead nearly 200 injured and hundreds arrested is that a a riot a answer apparently not if the overwhelming majority of the gang members Are White americans present Day a racial Divide a has never been More strikingly displayed than in the refusal of much of the mainstream and conservative Media to describe the May 17 biker riot in Waco Texas As a riot. The riot which occurred at a popular restaurant amid dozens of innocent bystanders and according to police involved members of five different gangs was one of the most extraordinary outbursts of mass criminal violence in recent memory. Further almost immediately after Waco police arrested the bikers rumours swirled that other members of the gangs were heading toward the City to both continue the Battle against their rivals and carry out death threats made against Waco police officials. Yet scanning the newspapers the universe of online publications and the network and Cable television news programs you a have scarcely come across any description of what occurred in Waco As a nor would you have Likely found any reference to the bikers Clad in their distinctively grungy biker garb As a a thugs or As one newspaper Reader put it a murdering thuggish Media matters the watchdog group pointed out the contrast in How Fox news for example covered Waco versus Baltimore and Ferguson. It noted a after african american communities in Baltimore and Ferguson to. Came together to demonstrate against the deadly and racially disparate policies of Law enforcement. Fox news branded the protests a a War on but when the Story became a mostly White Texas biker gang plotting to kill police with grenades and car bombs the network took a decidedly less sensationalist approach in its can political commentator Sally Kohn wrote a in fact in much of the coverage of the Waco shootings the race of the gang members in t even mentioned. By comparison the Day after Freddie Gray died in the custody of police officers in Baltimore not Only did most coverage mention that Gray was Black but also included a quote from the Deputy police commissioner noting Gray was arrested in a a High crime area known to have High narcotic incidents a implicitly smearing Gray and the entire the disparity in coverage did not go unremarked upon on Black social Media in a Host of progressive publications and in numerous online Reader responses to mainstream publication stories. Many also noted the Waco police responded to the deadly shootout with none of the heavily militarized equipment and body Armor that immediately marked police responses to peaceful protests in Ferguson and Baltimore indeed the differences in the language used underscore that the Way words and phrases Are used to talk about race and racial events has its own meaning. In this instance its that such words As a a riot and a a thug Are part of the lexicon of americans continuing racial Divide that among other things individualized White crime and White flaws while it indicts All Black americans for the flaws and crimes of individual Blacks. Some years ago a journalist Friend of mine described this dynamic As a the chains of collective the phenomenon Isnit new of course. Once the lexicon of anti Black collective guilt helped justify the actual chains of negro slavery and the legalized racism that followed. Now its usually employed in More Subtle ways. Except when its not As in the revealing discoveries Over the past two months of racist sexist and homophobic sweets and emails by cops in the police departments of san Francisco Miami Beach and fort Lauderdale Fla. In each Case All Are still in Early stages of investigation police officers some with Long years on their Force were found to have exchanged from dozens to hundreds of social Media messages disparaging with vile slurs against Blacks hispanic americans women Gays and lesbians Muslim americans and of course president Obama. Law enforcement co workers and innocent civilians alike were denigrated along with Black criminal suspects. The bulk of the messages in All these instances which cover from 2010 to the present focused on Black americans. The discoveries have led to the resignations of some of the officers and disciplinary actions including firing against the others. Even More important prosecutors and police officials in the three cities Are reviewing cases of defendants in which the officers were involved either As arresting officers or witnesses at trial. In san Francisco prosecutors have already dropped eight cases connected to some of the officers there. One Miami Beach cop tried to excuse his behaviour by describing it As just part of the police departments longstanding unfortunately the same could be said for the mainstream and conservative Media s refusal to use the most accurate descriptions for the Waco biker riot. Its those similarities that Are worrisome. Lee a. Daniels is a longtime journalist based in new York City. His collection of columns race Forward facing America s racial Divide in 2014, is available at donations to the Clinton foundation by George e. Curry Nipa columnist like the Bill and Malinda Gates foundation the worlds largest philanthropy that primarily funds education world health and population projects the Clinton foundation was established to address such issues As climate change global health economic development health and wellness and problems involving women and girls. In a crass Effort to derail Hillary Clinton a 2016 presidential Campaign bid major Republican figures and Fox news their partner in crime Are peddling the idea that there is something inherently wrong with supporting private efforts to improve the world. As Media matters observes they Are a falsely equating donations to the Clinton foundation with contributions to a democratic political the Media watchdog group observes a the foundation is a 501 c 3 not for profit organization which Means it is a absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in or intervening in any political Campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for elective Public Media matters wrote a Paul Waldman an american Prospect senior writer and former Media matters senior fellow criticized Politico reporter Dylan Byers for drawing a misleading a parallel Between donating to a candidate s Campaign and donating to a charitable foundation run by an a other Media figures have similarly made the false political Campaign comparison. Fox news Host Gretchen Carlson , National review online and , All suggested a donation to the foundation was equivalent to financing democratic candidates. A was Waldman explained at the Washington Post a its notable that everyone is now treating the Clinton foundation As if it has Long been Central to sort of scheme to personally Benefit the Clinton and not a charitable he added that a judging by the Way the foundation is now talked about As if anyone who has had any association with it is tainted you a think it was running a network of International assassins instead of distributing malaria partisan critics conveniently neglect to note that prominent republicans Are also generous contributors to the Clinton foundation. For example Rupert Murdoch founder of the news corporation foundation and his son James have Given More than a million dollars to the Clinton foundation. In fact More than a dozen news organizations have donated to the foundation. Aside from the overt political attack on the Clinton foundation the Case of George Steph Nopoulos a former Clinton administration press Secretary illustrates the problems associated with a political operative switching careers in Hopes of being viewed As a credible journalist. Too often to talking Heads Are labelled a a journalists when they Are anything but. As the american press Institute notes a journalism is the activity of gathering assessing creating and presenting news and in other words its not merely the ability to share ones opinions. Steph Nopoulos erred by making a $75,000 contribution to the Clinton foundation knowing it could Call into question his ability to be fair. He compounded the mistake by failing to disclose it to the Public. Like it or not if journalists want to maintain their credibility they must refrain from participating in overt political acts or behaviour that can be perceived that Way. Britt Hume of Fox said there a one thing he Steph Nopoulos needed to do in doing that was to sever any real or apparent ties with the Clinton. Contributing to their foundation is one thing. And now it also turns out that he participated in panels and other events connected to the Clinton global initiative. It is a mistake to do that. You want to be seen As evidently you get a pass if you re at Fox news. A Fox news has attacked Abc news Anchor George Steph Nopoulos for participating in Clinton foundation affiliated events calling it a a mistake that compromises a Good coverage a a Media matters found. A but Fox news Anchor Maria Bartiromo moderated or participated in at least eight Clinton global initiative events Between 2008 and 2013 while at yet Fox is not calling that a a a mistake that compromises a Good Judy Woodruff the co Anchor and managing editor of pcs news hour was criticized for making a paltry $250 donation in 2010 to the Clinton Haiti Relief fund. She issued a statement saying a i made the gift in response to an urgent joint Appeal from former president Clinton and then president George w. Bush for Aid to the victims of the Haiti earthquake a Woodruff explained in an email to the Wall Street journal. A seeing the massive loss of human life and the terrible conditions for survivors i wanted to make a contribution and saw this As a Way to do yes a a journalists must walk a Fine line not crossing Over into political partisanship. And yes they must avoid even the appearance of such activity. But lets be equally Clear the Clinton foundation is a highly respected Charity not a political offshoot of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Over medicating children in Foster care by Marian Wright Edelman Nipa columnist on any Given Day nearly one in four children in Foster care is taking at least one psychotropic medication More than four times the rate for All children. Nearly half of children living in residential treatment centers or group Homes take psychotropic medications. Children in Foster care Are More Likely to be prescribed multiple psychotropic medications at very High doses although research shows higher doses can result in serious Side effects. Viewers of the Abc news program 20/20 May remember key Onte Cook from a few years ago a 10-year-old who had already spent four years in Foster care being treated with a dozen different medications for conditions including seizures bipolar disorder and add. Key Onte had never been diagnosed with the conditions some of the medications were meant to treat. Under his adoptive parents care he stopped taking All the medications and started relying on therapy and with that new treatment plan he was transformed. Why Are some children in Foster care being Over medicated and what Steps do we need to take to do something about it psychotropic medications act on the brain and Central nervous system to cause changes in mood behaviour or perception. They can be effective treatments for certain serious mental health conditions but there is a growing concern that too Many children in Foster care Are Over medicated in some cases As a form of behaviour control. Children who come into Foster care often have been exposed to multiple traumatic events including the removal from their families and May be at higher risk for mental health problems and emotional disorders. Too often multiple medications May be used without other kinds of effective treatments that might better address the underlying trauma children Are experiencing. There a evidence some children in Foster care Are subjected to powerful medications at very Young Ages and or in combinations and amounts that Are unsafe for children of any age. Many psychotropic medications Are not approved for use in children at All. Often children in Foster care Are prescribed drugs without any psychotherapy because resources Arentt available. They May not receive a proper initial diagnosis or any of the ongoing monitoring or extra services that should accompany the use of such powerful drugs All essential considering the serious Side effects from some that can include nightmares hallucinations suicidal thoughts and even death. The 20/20 special included the heartbreaking Story of Gabriel Myers a Florida 7-year-old who Hung himself in his Foster family a bathroom. A state investigation concluded the use of psychotropic drugs was a contributing Factor in his death. His Foster father said the doctor who prescribed the Many drugs Gabriel was taking some so Strong that even the pharmacy filling them raised red flags would spend no More than five minutes with the Little boy before sending him out the door with another prescription. We must do better. Last year Joo Yeun Chang associate commissioner of the children a Bureau in the department of health and human services administration for children youth and families act testified before Congress that despite important Steps taken by the administration and Congress to promote the monitoring and management of psychotropic medications and the development of trauma informed practices too Many child welfare agencies Lack the proper non pharmacological treatments to address the mental health needs of children in Foster care. This year for the second time in president Obama a budget proposal act and the centers for medicare and medicaid services cams have jointly proposed a demonstration to promote trauma informed psychosocial interventions to meet the Complex needs of children who have experienced maltreatment and other trauma and to address the Over use of psychotropic medications for children in Foster care. The administration seeks to reduce the Over Reliance on drugs and increase the use of appropriate screening assessment and interventions. Act is asking Congress for $250 million Over five years to create the necessary infrastructure to do this including creating a special workforce to recruit families who can care for children receiving alternative treatments better training in trauma informed practice for child welfare professionals better coordination Between child welfare and medicaid agencies in Case planning and Case management and better data collection and information sharing by child welfare agencies medicaid and behavioural health services. The budget request also includes an additional $500 million for cams to provide incentives to states that demonstrate improvements to reduce inappropriate drug prescribing practices and Over utilization of psychotropic medications increase Access to evidence based and trauma informed therapeutic interventions promote child and adolescent Well being and improve outcomes for children in the child welfare system. These common sense and necessary Steps build on Best practices already in place in some states. May is National Foster care month and now is the right time to ensure children in Foster care get the treatment and care they truly need.
