After a Black father openly opposed critical race theory during an Illinois school board meeting, he appeared on The Ingraham Angle Tuesday to discuss it further. During the Ingraham Angle Ty Smith, called critical race theory an ideology that “teaches kids how to hate each other.” He told hoar Laura Ingraham he was the only Black person at the meeting.

Ingraham congratulated Smith for speaking out against what she calls the “critical race theory hoax.”

“I don’t care if anybody wants to agree with me or not, I lived this stuff,” Smith said.

He said that during the school meeting, he scoffed at the idea that white people kept him from succeeding in life.

Smith has two medical degrees and did not grow up with a father or a mother in the house.

“And to get myself through school like I did, there was no system there that they claim that was there, I’m sorry, I’m just calling it like it is,” he said, disputing what he says is a losing victim mentality based on CRT.

Instead, Smith said “the hard red pill to swallow” is that individuals get in the way of progressing themselves. “The biggest threat to me when I was growing up was somebody that looked exactly like me,” Smith said. “I never had no threat from any white police officer or any white person whatsoever.”

But he didn’t deny that a discriminatory system ever existed. “Now, back in the day, slave days and pre-Civil Rights Movement, I get that,” he said. “But in today’s world? Absolutely not. All they’re doing is keep on handing folks walkers.”

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
