A prevailing misconception among the general public in the United States has been that participation in public assistance programs is dominated by racial minorities.[1] In fact, minority groups have historically accounted for no more of the public assistance caseloads than white families. However, racial and ethnic minorities do have higher rates of participation in these programs than white families do, as these groups face higher rates of poverty than white families. The higher percentage of racial and ethnic minorities receiving assistance may fuel the perception that these groups are overrepresented in government benefit programs Who Receives Food Assistance in Ohio?

Trump Bans Diversity Training, Claiming It’s Divisive, Anti-American Propaganda President Trump just made a major announcement that will surely have a huge impact on the diversity, equity and inclusion industry. Trump is now prohibiting federal agencies from conducting cultural sensitivity trainings because, according to the report, they are “divisive, anti-American propaganda.” Diversity trainings that focus on educating participants about white privilege, critical race theory and the racist origins of the United States apparently create “division and resentment” amongst federal employees. What is deeply problematic about this new ban is that the U.S. has a habit of avoiding the country’s dark and racist past. Evading the issue will not make it go away. It will grow more insidious and resilient as each year passes.
