An attorney representing a white, gay Michigan State Police sergeant filed a lawsuit Wednesday claiming the agency’s diversity efforts discriminate against her because of her race, and that her supervisor subjected her to a homophobic atmosphere.
Sgt. Larissa LaMay claims in her suit that she was passed over in January for the position of assistant post commander in lieu of an African American[black] woman who had been “disciplined for failing to show up for work and falsifying records to conceal it.”
Barr took criticism this week after he called the COVID-19 lockdown orders the “greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American History” since slavery, which was a “different kind of restraint.” His comments were made at an event hosted by Hillsdale College in Virginia.
“This is another unhinged distraction, and it’s deeply disturbing that our chief law enforcement officer is propagating it,” Whitmer said from the backyard of the governor’s residence in Lansing.
Today, I signed executive order 2020-147, which requires the use of face coverings in crowded outdoor spaces. The order also requires any business that is open to the public to refuse entry or service to people who refuse to wear a face covering, with limited exceptions. pic.twitter.com/ivf1IpYjZ1
The tragic and unjust murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and too many Black and Brown Americans by police officers has led our nation to a moment where we must act now to make real change happen.

Hol’ up a moment… let’s review what Stephanie Chang, D-Detroit, thinks about “Black and Brown” seniors in Metro Detroit assisted living, nursing and, longterm care facilities, shall we?
Three days after the confirmation of Michigan’s first COVID-19 cases, the state’s nursing home association leader recommended in a letter to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration that empty facilities should be used as quarantine centers to “avoid widespread infection.”
But state officials declined the suggestion of Melissa Samuel, president and CEO of the Health Care Association of Michigan, and instead set up a system in which infected residents are cared for in isolated areas of nursing homes, separate from residents without the virus.
But, keep voting Democrat Boobus Michiganderous, because all of the above was about making sure Michiganians are safe and, not about a nationwide PlanDemocrat agenda to try to steal the November election.
Either that or, your eyes are lying to you, and you get what you deserve- good and hard.
“So – there hasn’t been one nursing home that has taken a COVID-19 patient that they didn’t think that they were prepared to care for. That’s something I think that has gotten lost in some of the reporting and that’s why I wanted to to make sure to share with you”
