Posted on 08/01/2020 8:08:32 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment announced at a town hall meeting on Thursday that it would declare racism a public health crisis.
Jill Hunsaker Ryan, executive director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, told the Denver Post that the agency will join the American Public Health Association in defining race and social inequalities as a broader health concern. She said the move is a response to a push from her staff to address the issue, saying, I like it when my employees push me on this issue to go faster and to use language they think is more descriptive.
The department had already published an open letter on its website calling the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks, and untold others a symptom of deeply-rooted systemic and institutional racism that has dehumanized and recklessly taken the lives of people of color for generations, and labeling racism a serious public health issue.
Staffers, however, felt that the statement was too weak. There was internal concern that using the word issue versus crisis minimized the problem.
Ive just been kind of dumbfounded as someone who works for the agency, said one employee, explaining they were really underwhelmed with the stance that theyve taken, and have been really appalled by the fact that CDPHE remains silent about systemic racism.
Its just kind of a pattern internally of dragging our feet and not really addressing why we havet done anything, they continued.....

Unfortunately, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Jill Hunsaker Ryan are not concerned at all about meida lies (or partial truth) about George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks, and untold others.
The exploitation of racism IS a public health concern.
Reading between the lines, it is declaring that whites are fair game for any assault or atrocity anyone “of color” may wish to visit upon them.
The left are batsh!t crazy. Cultural Marxism is alive and well in America, and political and economic Marxism are on the horizon.
I got ready to read a semi-satire........then realized this is for real.
COLORADO IS A HEALTH CRISIS................WHAT A BUNCH OF LOONS...............
Go away Colorado you’re on Drugs
Well, sure it is. And you know what is another public health crisis? Its when people forget the meaning of even one letter in the nonsensical acronym LGBTQIA+.
I demand that Colorado - and every other state - form commissions to investigate this tragic matter.
Oops! I just called that acronym nonsensical. Id better report myself to my states commission as soon as it forms.
Someone creating a hostile work environment. Some folks ‘feel’ threatened now. Come on, play the game.
Austin did it a few days ago. Colorado is slipping behind.
What kind of mask is going to be required to ward that off?
This is what happens when liberals leave a place that they have turned into a POS and move because they can’t stand what they have created. They then move to another place that used to be clean and nice bringing they crappy ideas with them and then get them implemented.
We have no systemic racism in the US. Look at every segment of American society and you find successful blacks, and plenty of them. Turn on TV and blacks are heavily represented, ditto the entire entertainment industry, throughout the ranks of career government employees at every level, also the military, in industry they are well represented at every level including CEO’s, the business world, large population of blacks at every level of education, and on and on. This racism charge is an out-of-control lie.
Colorado governance is a public health hazard.
We already know from the corona virus situation that if something is a public health crisis, the constitution is put on hold for the duration.
Only Trump pulled all of these wackos out of the woodworka woodwork that included Republicans, the MSM, and Deep Staters.
So, if I say I’m a racist, can I get a disability check?
How did Colorado become such a leftist state?
“Only Trump pulled all of these wackos out of the woodworka woodwork that included Republicans, the MSM, and Deep Staters.”
So very true.
