Trade boycotts or bans are especially costly when production is organised through global supply chains, as is the case with the pharmaceutical industry. Although India is the third largest producer of finished drugs in the world, it relies significantly on China for supplies of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), the key components in making medicines. An estimated 70 per cent of API requirements of India s pharmaceutical industry are sourced from China. For some drugs, such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, this dependence is almost 100 per cent. This import reliance has been fuelled by environmental controls in India and competition with China, which has higher volumes of production and lower costs. Given this, restricting or banning the import of APIs would cause significant disruption to the Indian pharmaceutical industry which had $40 billion in revenues in 2018 19, according to Pharmexcil.Such a prospect is especially of concern to potential patients. A severe contraction of Indian pharmaceutical production and its almost $20 billion worth of annual exports, would affect access to medicines both in India and globally. The impacts would be especially high in low and middle income countries which have become increasingly dependent on affordable medicines supplied by India. In many African countries, in fact, India supplies almost 50 per cent of the medicines in value terms and even higher percentages in terms of volume.

While racial slurs and other forms of verbal harassment constituted the vast majority of the incidents, nearly eight percent involved physical assaults, businesses barring Asian Americans from entering their establishments due to misplaced coronavirus fears, and attackers coughing and spitting on victims, according to STOP AAPI Hate, an anti Asian hate tracker. In one incident in March, a group of African American teenagers on a commuter rail in San Francisco used their backpacks to attack a mask wearing Asian American, saying he had COVID 19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. In another occurrence in April, a stranger threw a large rock through the atrium window of a Chinese American family s house in Santa Rosa, California. The house had Chinese writing along the front door as a blessing for good health and harmony. These are first hand accounts where individuals are describing harrowing and traumatizing experiences, including what is being said to them when they re being attacked, said Cynthia Choi, co executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action, one of the coalition partners.
By Christie Robinson, CONTRIBUTOR A popular young African American Youtuber from San Leandro recalls the time she almost had a breakdown due to the overwhelmingly disturbing comments people would leave under her videos. The bullying started in middle school and people bullied me on just about everything especially about my looks, kids can be really cruel you know, says Sade Amari. Since 2013, Amari has been making Youtube videos and has experienced different levels of cyberbullying, and discrimination that she says has led to depression at one point. Amari s social media presence has gained over 267,000 subscribers on youtube and due to Amari being famous in the social media world makes her more vulnerable to people cyber attacking her. I get a lot of comments like are you sick You need to eat And that ''s because I am really skinny. says Amari. Not only has she had to alter her personal lifestyle due to fans, but she has to deal with verbal abuse online and sometimes in person. Why do Black Women have to be sexy all the time while girls from other races can dress regularly and not be sexualized? Say, Amari. Preteen and older adolescent Black girls experience high numbers of bullying, over sexualization, and the promotion considering Black girls and women as masculine in the media. Granted, the majority of women of color which includes Latino, Asian, and many other groups of women that identify as a woman of color still experience bullying due to the background of certain cultures and stereotypes. The common bullying is usually at school and children have to resolve it through school officials and in some cases some kids have to deal with the torture of being picked on. In 2020, technology has created identities, friendships, and revenue for many women in the world but it also has come with the brutal truth of Cyberbullying and how women of color tend to be the target of internet bullying. According to the Pew Research center, online harassment is regularly directed towards those with visible accessible characteristics, such as gender, race ethnic background. The study shows that online harassment stems contribute from historically subjected discrimination which is why Black Women tend to get harassed sexually, emotionally and in some cases, it can become physical. On the other hand, studies including African American girls who are raised in working class families show 51 different experiences with aggression as a byproduct of their upbringing. African American girls are more likely to experience and commit more masculinized acts of aggression as a condition of their family upbringing and ideas of femininity reinforced in African American households. Black, Asian, and Latino women are the highest group to receive online cyber aggression, but African American girls have the highest number of women that receive online harassment says Dr. Casey Quirarte. An educator, community advocate #038; curriculum specialist has the first hand experience with young and preteen African American girls. In her research, she discovered the differences between African American girls and European girls in how they are raised. African American girls experience relational aggression and African American families tend to raise their female children with more gender neutral values. The fact that African American women can be considered masculine results in society thinking African American women are not beautiful. The media doesn t have the best representation of Black Women and the one that comes to mind as a representation for Black Women is Michelle Obama. Even with Michelle Obama and all the positive things she has done for America and the internet would call her unattractive, masculine, and virtually attack her simply because she is a woman of color and women of color are supposed to not be associated with success. Social platforms make it accessible and vulnerable in which women tend to get bullied and harassed more. The internet doesn t flag online aggression towards women as a target of reinforcing feminine norms and stereotypes that are attached to women of color. According to a study by Gender and The Media: Women ''s Places, They discovered that on Twitter, over 25% of cyber aggression on twitter was towards Black women while only 3% was towards white women. The famous word bitch was referred to like Black women and identifies it as all women of color. Not only do all women of color experience some level of cyber aggression but it affects their personal life as well, especially if you are popular on Instagram and or Twitter, Youtube, etc. Someone made a fake account and tried to ruin my relationship with my boyfriend and my parents, took screenshots of me on vacation, and sent them to my mother. She was furious. Online bullying can go towards the lengths of strangers investing in someone ''s life and sabotaging their image out of greed and jealousy. Online users illustrate social media users ' lives and characterize the nature of cyberbullying within the online population. In some cases, it can be hard to identify the problem because of the misrepresentation of the definition in society. Forms of bullying, in general, may limit the approach to how people view cyberbullying. Many women, especially women of color, are constantly harassed online and deal with it so much to the point that it is actually normal to them. Bullying and cyberbullying are completely different towards every race class of people and society needs to understand that they are being virtually attacked even if someone hacks your profile it s still considered a violation. In comparison, it s like a young child being a victim of sexual assault and that child doesn t realize it until he she older. There are different elements to bullying and sometimes it takes going through the motions to diagnose the problem. Women of color have been victims of cyber aggression or people participating in degrading individuals online.
Mahadevan;s film is based on the real life story of Prabhavati Amma from Kerala, who lost her son Udayakumar due to police brutality in 2005.Citing the example of the killing of African American George Floyd by the police that took place in the US, Ananth said: "I think suddenly the rage against the police brutality has gone to its pick, a lot of protests are taking place worldwide. Whether it is in our country or in abroad, there are so many videos and news coverage we get to see on police brutality these days. Although it is not a new practice where innocents are brutalised by the police, the conversation around it has come into the forefront. "
No Briton had started the Tour de France before Charles Holland and Bill Burl in 1937. Martin 'Cochise' Rodr guez was the first Colombian to line up in 1975, and Jonathan 'Jock' Boyer was the first American in 1981 and let''s not forget Canada''s Pierre Gachon in 1937, even though he didn''t complete the first stage.
The 2019 KnowBe4 African Report found that Africa is increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks. The report highlighted how vulnerable users were when it came to recognising cyber threats and managing their risk profiles. In 2020, Accenture released a report entitled Insight into the Cyberthreat Landscape in South Africa that revealed there are around 577 attempted malware attacks every hour.Cybercrime has turned towards Africa and is putting its people and organisations at risk.
The U.S. African American Redress Network, a collaboration between Howard University;s Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center and Columbia University;s Institute for the Study of Human Rights, was created as an urgent response to the discourse on reparations and social justice in the U.S.As police violence and structural racism continue to pose a grave threat to American society as seen in both the death of George Floyd and the coronavirus pandemic, which has disproportionately affected people of color, the Redress Network aims to better understand how communities are addressing historic racial transgressions. It also expects to increase awareness of redress efforts across different regions and fields such as activism, academia and policy making.
In the wake of the death of 46 year old African American George Floyd, several historical figures across the US and Europe who were hitherto revered in history have been called out for who they really were racist enslavers and slave traders. And now, it seems even institutions carrying the names of racist persona will not be tolerated.
For a movie that came out four decades ago, a lot in The Blues Brothers still feels very relevant today. "It #39;s anti Nazi. It #39;s anti racist, " explains its star and co screenwriter, Dan Aykroyd. "It venerates African American culture and recognizes African American performers and artists. " While any cultural conversation today might cite the comedy as an example of appropriation and "white saviors " rescuing the blues, in 1973, the movie #39;s origins seemed innocent enough.
An African proverb has it that, when elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers; meaning that there is almost always unintended collateral damage when great powers come to blows. But that is not always the case in geopolitics. Instead, our present world is increasingly characterized at the global level of analysis by the incipient Sino American struggle for dominance. However, great powers one rung below particularly India and the EU have an opportunity not only to affect the overall outcome of the contest, but to greatly advance their interests along the way. As has been true since time began, there are basic rules to global politics, based primarily on geography. The joint Eurasian landmass remains the dominant geographic fixture of the world in terms of resources, population, and overall importance. To control either section of Eurasia proper (Europe or Asia) is to dominate the world. As an island superpower off of the Eurasian landmass, overall American foreign policy at the geostrategic level is simple: To stop any other superpower from dominating either portion of it, in order to maintain its dominant global position. Presently, this means cultivating both the EU and, more importantly, India as allies against a rising China. It is in this geostrategic context that India s increasingly rosy future must be seen. There is little doubt that, with the US only just emerging from the pandemic and enduring nationwide civil rights protests too, China is on the strategic march. Settling scores with the nationalist Indian government of Narendra Modi as it moves ever closer to the US is one such example of Beijing s increasingly aggressive foreign policy. Not backing down, New Delhi reinforced its military position in Ladakh, along the disputed Sino Indian border, at the same time as Beijing rushed 10,000 troops to the disputed area. While both sides then took a deep breath, and were in the process of de escalating the potentially dangerous conflict, confrontations on Monday left at least 20 Indian soldiers dead. In essence, a mini war has just been fought, with Beijing seemingly emerging the victor. But appearances can be highly deceptive in international relations, for the purpose of the exercise from the Chinese point of view was not to gain territory on its far away border, but rather to humiliate the Modi government, warning it off from deepening its ties with the US. The never subtle Global Times, a nationalist, state owned Chinese newspaper, made this plain, warning the Indian government on May 31 not to become a pawn in the new Cold War between the US and China. Exhibiting its lack of emotional intelligence, the Chinese Communist Party leadership fails to understand that bullying India, rather than cowing it, is likely to drive New Delhi even more firmly into America s arms. This great strategic shift between Washington and New Delhi to a de facto alliance has been gathering speed for some time, cemented by joint worries about the rise of China. In 2016, the US designated India a major defense partner for the first time, leading to increased intelligence sharing between the two great powers and a slew of arms deals, amounting to $7.9 billion between 2017 and 2020. Annual joint naval exercises (along with Japan) are now the norm in the Indian Ocean. In particular, New Delhi views the nascent Quadrilateral grouping of India, the US, Japan, and Australia as an anti Chinese alliance of Indo Pacific democracies. The Modi government has been further encouraged as the Trump White House exasperated by the out of date G7 process of major European and North American democracies (plus Japan) has proposed the group''s expansion to include Asian powers Australia, South Korea and India itself. There is little doubt a momentous geostrategic realignment has begun. As this new Cold War gathers pace, so do calls for the partial decoupling of the central Sino American supply chain that has characterized the fading era of globalization. Rows over China s complicity in the spread of COVID 19 will likely accelerate this decoupling process, as the US, EU, Japan, the UK, and Australia become more uncomfortable with their overdependence on Beijing. There is little doubt a momentous geostrategic realignment has begun.
Currently enjoying his best season in English football, the Ghana international has netted eight times in 28 league games so far this term.It ''s more than he ''s netted in any season since he was at FC Lorient, and he ''s proving to be a major steal for Crystal Palace after arriving from Swansea City for a bargain fee in the summer.
King s dream was that of a southern black middle class Baptist priest, which became the expression of the struggle for civil rights in America and a pivotal moment of nonviolent resistance against injustice around the globe. Malcolm X, born Malcolm Little in Omaha, Nebraska, was a product of the northern poor black ghettos. Unlike King, his dream was essentially a nightmare, in which African Americans had no chance and no hope of finding dignity and justice.Though a believer (he converted to Islam), the seeds of Malcolm s black nationalist sentiments were not sown in Christian or Gandhian nonviolence. He had experienced violence by the whites in his youth. Later in life, he had to go through violence in prison, where he spent several years for armed robbery. It was in prison, in early the 1950s, that he became a political activist and joined the black nationalist religious group, the Nation of Islam.
Not just because the 1939 film featured skewed, white washed representation of African Americans during the Civil War, or its romanticisation of the slavery ridden Antbellum South, but because the film even contains a marital rape scene everyone seems to have forgotten about.HBO has stated that the movie will come back to its library of films, supported with a discussion of its historical context and a denouncement of those very depictions . But those critical of the film being pulled down argue that it made Hattie McDaniel the first black actor to win an Oscar for her role as Mammy. The reality is that McDaniel was not even allowed to sit next to her White co stars during the Oscar ceremony due to racial segregation. That s not the only tragedy the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People disowned her for playing a role they felt perpetuated negative stereotypes about Black people, her Oscar was dismissed as valueless , and then subsequently the statue went missing.
