*SHOCK- OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF BLACK AMERICANS SUPPORT CURRENT OR INCREASED POLICE PRESENCE:
Eighty-one percent of black Americans said
they would prefer if police spend the same amount of time or more time
in their neighborhoods, according to a Gallup survey
released Wednesday. The survey, which also includes responses from other
racial and ethnic groups, indicates that 20% of black respondents said
they want an increased police presence, 61% want the same presence, and
19% want less. The support for current policing levels was fairly
consistent across racial lines, with an average of 67% of Americans
saying the current level of time police spend in their area is adequate.
Asian American respondents expressed the greatest preference for
decreasing police presence, with 28% favoring this option, the survey
When asked how frequently they interact with police, 32% of black respondents said very often or often, compared with 28% of Hispanic respondents, 22% of white respondents, and 21% of Asian respondents, according to Gallup. Among black respondents 39%, said that they were not too confident or not at all confident of receiving positive treatment, compared with 22% of Hispanic respondents, 22% of Asian respondents, and 9% of white respondents. The survey is part of the Gallup Center on Black Voices, which is “devoted to studying and highlighting the experiences of more than 40 million Black Americans: tracking and reporting on progress on life outcomes and a life well-lived.”
*BILL GATES: AMERICA OFFERS THE MOST WORTHLESS COVID-19 TEST RESULTS IN THE WORLD:
Bill Gates continued his
unbridled criticism of the United States’ response to the coronavirus
pandemic on Sunday, calling America’s testing system “insanity” and
stressing that the country was now facing “a pretty dramatic price” both
in human death and wasted money. Gates said it takes far too long to
receive coronavirus test results in the U.S. “You can’t get the federal
government to improve the testing because they just want to say how
great it is,” the Microsoft co-founder-turned-philanthropist said. “I’ve said to them, look, have a CDC
website that prioritizes who gets tested. That’s trivial to do. They
won’t pay attention to that. I’ve said don’t reimburse any tests where
the result goes back after three days. You’re paying billions of dollars
in this very inequitable way to get the most worthless test results of
any country in the world.”
On the topic of America’s lockdowns, Gates pointed to countries in the European Union that faced the coronavirus outbreak earlier than the U.S. and instituted more coordinated lockdowns. “What’s impressive is that Italy, France, Spain ― who had a wave before us ― managed as they fell off to keep even the parts of the country that hadn’t had the intense epidemic from creating a second wave,” Gates said. ”In the case of the United States, they opened up their bars. They didn’t do much in the way of wearing masks. And so those areas became this second wave,” he added. Gates has pledged $1.6 billion to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, with $100 million going towards coronavirus vaccines. Most recently, he argued that the CDC’s COVID-19 response was “muzzled” by a White House that refused to offer proper leadership during a time of crisis.
*SURVEY PROVES LBN EXAMINER READERS, 18-29, IS MUCH BETTER INFORMED:
rise of social media has changed the information landscape in myriad
ways, including the manner in which many Americans keep up with current
events. In fact, social media is now among the most common pathways
where people – particularly young adults 18 – 29 – get their political
news. A new Pew Research Center analysis of surveys
conducted between October 2019 and June 2020 finds that those who rely
most on social media for political news stand apart from other news
consumers in a number of ways. These U.S. adults, for instance, tend to
be less likely than other news consumers to closely follow major news
stories, such as the coronavirus outbreak and the 2020 presidential
election. And, perhaps tied to that, this group also tends to be less
knowledgeable about these topics. In
the same age range – 18 – 29 Examiner readers in all 50 of the United
States and 26 foreign countries were “much better informed and much less
likely to believe and share false narratives.”
