    What are they going to call their homeless? "Asphalt Involved Persons?"
    As the saying goes, "George Orwell's 1984 was a warning, not an instruction manual!"

    This is actually not new - ‘Justice-Involved Individuals’ is a term from a 2016 guide from the Department of Education to refer to “criminals.”

    Beyond the Box
    Increasing Access to Higher Education for Justice Involved Individuals
    Purpose of This Guide

    Today, an estimated 70 million Americans have been involved with the criminal justice system. Data show plainly that people of color are more likely to come in contact with the justice system due, in part, to punitive school disciplinary policies that disproportionately impact certain student groups and racial profiling.

    There is also growing recognition that successful reintegration back into our society for justice-involved individuals benefits those individuals, their families, and our communities. Research also shows that education can be a powerful pathway for justice-involved individuals to transition out of prison back into the classroom or the workforce, and cuts the likelihood of returning to prison within three years by over 40 percent.

    With this context, it is critical to ensure that gateways to higher education, such as admissions practices, do not disproportionately disadvantage justice-involved individuals who have already served their time. Criminal justice information (CJI), for instance, has been shown to deter potentially well qualified applicants from applying for, and enrolling in, the postsecondary education and training that economists predict is critical to meaningful reentry and labor market success.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Well, except for the niggling detail that the melanin deficient folks in question are promoting biological uniformity.

    No they want to "diversify" -- to separate and distribute the other races to other localities.

    You have to, um, tweak, various definitions when you play the PC game.

    Trying to avoid stigmatization is a good idea if rehabilitation is the goal.

    “Inaccurate information, unfounded assumptions, generalizations and other negative predispositions associated with justice-involved individuals create societal stigmas, attitudinal barriers and continued negative stereotypes,” it continues.

    “We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from,” Haney said.
    “I think God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.” ― Oscar Wilde
    “You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” ― Anne Lamott
    “And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence” ― Bertrand Russell
