Some children can ‘recover’ from autism, but problems often remain, study finds

Research in the past several years has shown that children can outgrow a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), once considered a lifelong condition. In a new study, researchers have found that the vast majority of such children still have difficulties that require therapeutic and educational support.

‘It feels like we are still hostages’: Federal contractors who lost health insurance during shutdown remain in limbo

For one firm, the tight margins of federal work meant it wasn’t able to pay its health insurance premium, leading to a lapse in coverage for employees who also lost five weeks of wages. Now they’re bracing for the possibility of another shutdown after Feb. 15.

Four Profoundly Concerning Issues Remain About That Attack on a McDonald’s Worker

The recent attack on a McDonald’s worker was just the latest episode of ‘come for a black woman.” The now-viral video shows Daniel Willis Taylor–a white man–attacking Yamine James, an employee at a McDonald’s in St. Petersburg, Florida. The video shows Taylor, 40, yelling at James before laying hands on the petite woman — grabbing her by the collar and almost snatching her over the counter — and in retaliation, James served him a two-piece, a three-piece and a quarter-pound ass whooping in-kind. And while many hail the young black woman for making her attacker an accidental victim, everything about this scenario is unsettling. Also disappointing is the public response. The Young Turks, a popular podcast, referred to the occurrence as a “feel good story” in a Jan. 3, Facebook post. The video has since been removed. But like diamonds, screenshots are forever.

 

What happened to 20-year-old James is not a feel good story–it’s a deplorable one. Consider the emotional toll the situation took on James. In a news release from Civil Liberty Law, she stated:

“I am not only physically hurt, but I am emotionally hurt that I was left to defend myself even as I was surrounded by my co-workers and other bystanders.”

Those statements are far removed from anything that feels good — they are the antithesis. Here are four profoundly concerning issues about the video that speaks to what is fundamentally wrong with society.

 

Black Women are an Endangered Species

 

From the workplace to hospital labor rooms, black women are subject to violence. In December of last year, BLACK ENTERPRISE reported on the workplace safety of black women. We are also mistreated and under-treated in healthcare, particularly around childbirth. Recent studies show “African American women are 3 to 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women,” BE also reported. Serena Williams gave a firsthand account to CNN on her own run-in with nurses and physicians who dismissed her health concerns after childbirth. The tennis star damn near died. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Institute for Women’s Policy Research reported the overwhelming disparity in attacks on black women:

-Four out of ten black women are affected by domestic violence; a rate higher than other races.

-Black women are bullied and coerced and psychologically and verbally abused more than any race of women

-Over 20% of black women are raped in their lifetimes which is at a higher rate than all women. 

 

White Supremacy has Folks Shook

The disturbing video shows a white man flaunting his whiteness and several male employees yielding to it. One employee watched as James defended herself and only intervened once it was clear she had the advantage over her assailant. Even worse, his intent seems to be  stopping James rather than the white man.  As Taylor continued to rant and call James “bitch,” not one male employee responded; each stood around Taylor attempting to “tame” her. Clearly, chivalry is dead, but white intimidation is not.

Public De-Sensitivity to Violence

Americans were caught off guard when Mamie Till had an open casket funeral, revealing her son Emmett Till’s mutilated face. He was brutally beaten and killed by two white men — allegedly for flirting with a white woman. American were outraged when a video of Rodney King being brutalized by police surfaced. 

Thanks to social media, shock over violent acts has waned. The public has limitless access to violence and trauma porn — so much so it is no longer triggering to witness violence in real time. Currently, video of James’ attack has 63,000 comments, was shared 75,000 times. His video was not the only one captured. Which says people were more concerned with using their phones to record the violent attack opposed to dialing 911.

Food Workers are At-Risk

James’ assault shows that food service workers risk physical violence but data also shows that segment of the workforce is especially at-risk. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission revealed food service workers are more subject to workplace sexual harassment than employees at higher paying fields. Food service workers along with other service employees, made up nearly 50% of the sexual harassment complaints filed, reported Chron. Out 85,000 complaints made between 2005 and 2015, over 14% came from “accommodations and food service industry.” To add insult to injury food service workers rank among low-wage earners.
