Segregated Zone: County Creates Race-Specific ‘Grounding Space’ For Minority Staff To Escape ‘Whiteness’ During Pandemic

COVID-19 has claimed one more life in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 87, the Oregon Health Authority reported at 8 a.m. Saturday. Oregon Health Authority also reported 76 new cases of COVID-19 as of 8 a.m. Saturday, bringing the state total to 2,253.

This is what we have heard from the mainstream media when it comes to COVID 19 and Oregon.

But no one reported the racism that was displayed by on Portland county.

An Oregon county in the Portland area said it was creating a safe “grounding space” for minority staff to escape a predominant “whiteness.”
From Just The News:

The April 5 “situation report” from the Multnomah County Office of Emergency Operations Center announced that the “Emergency Operations Center Equity Officer is hosting a grounding space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) employees to share, heal, connect, and get grounded in a space that is not dominated by whiteness.”


Read a portion of the Emergency Operations Center bulletin below:

Multnomah County dismissed any notion that a government entity hosting a race-specific “grounding space” as a haven from “whiteness” could raise constitutional concerns or furnish grounds for a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency that administers and enforces civil rights laws against workplace discrimination.

So, in other words, they are creating segregation zones. And denying certain people of certain skin color access.

It sounds like racial discrimination to me.
Is anyone bringing forth a lawsuit against these non-humans?
