The ⁦⁩ bizarrely highlights Rashida Tlaib as POC while marking Chris Sununu (who is also Palestinian!), Alex Azar (Lebanese), Farnam Jahanian (Iranian), and probably others as white. Why not use the same criteria across all sections?
Hey , can you tell me what methodology you used to determine that Chris Sununu (Lebanese, via El Salvador) and Alex Azar (Lebanese) are white, while Rashida Tlaib (Palestinian) is a person of color?
We reviewed more than 900 officials and executives in prominent positions and found that just 20% identify as Black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, multiracial or otherwise a person of color. Here are the faces of power in America today.
It’s interesting that for the purposes of this feature Justin Amash (Palestinian/Syrian Christian family) is white and Rashida Tlaib (Palestinian Muslim family) is a person of color.
We're going to make a chart... We're going to investigate the heritage of hundreds of people... And we'll highlight the POC in yellow.
It looks like a far-right meme counting Jews in the media, but it's actually the NYT counting whites in leadership position. Nothing to see here, everything is cool.
I really don't understand the new liberal obsession w/ categorizing people by race/ethnicity & making lists. Would they do this by religion? What would that accomplish? Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., is of Palestinian Arab descent but listed as white.
Here's my table summarizing the New York Times' "Faces of Power" feature on the racial makeup of the 922 most powerful people in America:

To those mad at it being publicly pointed out that Jewish individuals are overrepresented by a factor of about 7 on the NYT's list of 922 powerful people: Are you also mad at The Times pointing out whites are overrepresented (by a smaller amount)? Why not?

I’m worried that increasing demographic diversity won’t inexorably lead to incorporation. The U.S. might become a system of white minority rule like South African Apartheid or parts of the Jim Crow south. #racialprogress #racializedorganizations
