There happens to be a People of Color working group and a Safer Spaces

Working group.

This data needs to be checked by people actually doing anti-racism

work. Scientific Racism has long roots in Eugenics, some of us from

critical race theory are all too familiar with the ways data work. IF

you think i am "lashing out" at anyone being white, you are part of

this problem and do not understand that people of color are backlashed

every time they speak up against racism."this is america" really you

decide you get to tell me which continent this is and define it to me?

 'There has to be some accountability and some understanding of racism

before you begin to pretend to speak for oppressed groups and silence

and threaten those who raise the concerns.
