    Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has appointed five Black women to the statewide bench in less than two years, something his 42 predecessors didn’t do combined.

    Polis, who took office in January 2019, appointed Frances Johnson for the 4th Judicial District Court in Colorado Springs in October 2019. The appointment made Johnson the first Black woman appointed to a district court position of general jurisdiction.

    Still have trouble with this overuse of "women" as an adjective. I know there was a clever argument about "female" referring too much to anatomy, but now I focus on their marginalization with grammar? (I did finally accept "actor" for women after some arguments by Cate Blanchett, similar to my feelings about a girl who was inspired by "Almost Famous" and everyone assumed she wanted to be a groupie, not a music journalist)

    African American Mayors. Black Americans have become instrumental in US local government

The police officer was later judged to have acted in self-defence.

    The vast majority of African American mayors belong to the Democratic Party. Research among 55 large US cities with black mayors shows that in July 2020 some 50 mayors were Democrats, four were Independents and only one was a member of the Republican Party [....]

    Looks to me like much better integration has been achieved as to percentage of black and white in police forces than in a lot of schools.

    Actually, it's probably other minorities that are much more screwed in the quota process here that is enforced by a lot of localities.
