Safe Passage and Other Social Programs Discussed with Dr. Coya Paz

morningamp:

"I would argue that the system is working as it is intended to work, does it serve communities that we all care about? No, but is it "working"? Sure. […]Some people can work any system, but if a system is set up so that a significant portion of people will not succeed in it, then those people will not succeed in it, and then we’re talking about exceptional-ism, which is so American." - Dr. Coya Paz on The Morning AMp.

A Game of Racist or Not Racist with the Good Doctor Coya Paz

morningamp:

We’re playing Racist or Not Racist with Coya Paz: a dog rescue group in California took an unchipped, unspayed dog from the pound and readopted to a new family the morning the owner came forward to claim her. The owner, who bought the dog for her 4-year old son, says they wouldn’t give the pup back because she lives in a “bad” part of town and didn’t meet their standards for ownership.
