In many Asian American families, racism is rarely discussed

  In many Asian American families, racism is rarely discussed “I just didn’t want them to stress and not be afraid to go to school. The less they knew, the better it was.”Chai says she never encountered any form of discrimination before moving to Texas, where she not only dealt with everything from being ignored to being followed around in stores as a suspected shoplifter but also experienced racism from her white ex-husband’s family. But Chai never really talked about these issues with her daughters — until recently.

Kerry Washington, Catherine O’Hara, Lena Waithe and Kelly Clarkson are among the women who will be honored by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation at its 46th Annual Gracie Awards.

The event, which is set to take place Sept. 27 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, honors women working in television, radio and digital media along with entertainment and news programs created by women that address timely topics and social issues.

Other 2021 honorees will include Hillary Rodham Clinton, DeDe McGuire, Danielle Monaro and Erin Andrews, along with NBC’s Today, CBS This Morning’s “Breonna Taylor: Her Life, Death and Legacy,” ABC’s black-ish, FX Networks’ Mrs. America and Disney+’s Taylor Swift documentary folklore: the long pond studio sessions.

How the ‘Culture War’ Could Break Democracy

  How the ‘Culture War’ Could Break Democracy Thirty years ago, sociologist James Davison Hunter popularized the concept of culture war. Today, he sees a culture war that’s gotten worse — and that spells trouble for the future of the American experiment.Hunter, a 30-something sociologist at the University of Virginia, didn’t invent the term, but his book vaulted it into the public conversation, and within a few years it was being used as shorthand for cultural flashpoints with political ramifications. He hoped that by calling attention to the dynamic, he’d help America “come to terms with the unfolding conflict” and, perhaps, defuse some of the tensions he saw bubbling.

“Throughout this important year, we have enjoyed some of the most compelling content in our history. We were informed, enlightened and entertained by women in media across all platforms,” said Becky Brooks, president of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. “As we celebrate AWM’s 70th anniversary, we are thrilled to honor this incredible group of women who have demonstrated their commitment to sharing emotionally charged, timely and compelling content. We look forward to reconvening in person to recognize these incredible achievements and brave storytelling.”

Honorees are selected in national, local and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets. In lieu of the Gracie Awards Luncheon, which will no longer take place in person on June 26 in New York City, local and student award winners will be recognized virtually. An alternate in-person celebration is currently being evaluated.

Mobile vaccination units hit tiny US towns to boost immunity

  Mobile vaccination units hit tiny US towns to boost immunity FALLON, Nev. (AP) — Pick-up truck drivers motor up to a white trailer in a parking lot on Fallon Paiute-Shoshone land in Nevada’s high desert and within a few moments they’re handed forms to sign, jabbed with coronavirus vaccine and sent on their way. The pop-up clinic 60 miles (96 kilometers) east of Reno is one of 28 locations in the state where the Federal Emergency Management Agency has dispatched mobile vaccination units to ensure people in far-flung rural areas and one stop-light towns can get inoculated.
